  • Lovely, comfortable home

    "This house and garden are beautiful. The location is perfect. We stayed here very comfortably with our best friends. There were 8 of us all together, and we never once felt crowded. Each room in the house is lovely, the beds were extremely comfortable, and the showers were strong and hot. The house felt very private with a very easy distance to the charming town. The owners were very nice and they were great communicators. We couldn't have been happier!"

  • Everything you need in an apartment and a great neighborhood

    "The Marais District was an excellent area to stay and the Beauce apartment was perfect for us. As other reviewers wrote, everything one needs was provided and exactly as described. We appreciated the comfortable bed with good linens, plentiful hot water, the nice wine and snacks on arrival, the free wi fi, and the iphone that helped us to negotiate the streets and answer questions we had. (Who built the Louvre? What Loire Valley tours are available?) The apartment looks out over a street without traffic and is steps away (20 yards maybe?) from a major street. When we closed the easy to work shutters outside the window the city traffic noise was minimal and contributed to a good night of sleep. We used the stairs to help burn those bread and cheese calories but the elevator worked well. The neighborhood had everything we needed from a complete grocery store around the corner to great restaurants to a myriad of specialty stores. And when touring some of the most popular sites, we looked forward to returning "home" to our charming neighborhood away from the multitude of tourists. Steve quickly answered email questions before and text messages during our stay. Elizabeth met us when we arrived. She was friendly and helpful answering questions that we didn't know we'd have and reminded us that she was available to answer queries during our stay. She took us out into the neighborhood and pointed out the best options for shopping, transportation and some historic venues. Throughout our stay we often remarked how happy we were to not be in a hotel. A sincere THANK YOU to our hosts. It was a wonderful stay and we hope to return some day."

  • Un site fabuleux

    "Nous avons passé une semaine de rêve dans cette très jolie maison dont la situation au-dessus du lac rend la vue imprenable. Située à flanc de colline au bout d'un chemin privatif, l'endroit est très calme, parfait pour qui aspire à se ressourcer. Nous avons apprécié la piscine chauffée et la mise à disposition des canoës pour les promenades sur le lac. Tout était parfait !"

  • Paris Excellence

    "For my first VRBO experience in Paris, I could not have been more pleased. The apartment was perfectly represented in pictures but even better in person. Great windows that open to the Seine, Notre Dame and the Louvre in the distance. The kitchen and bath are clean and modern and there is even a clothes wash machine available. The pull out sofa bed is very comfortable and I slept very well. The location is superb- everything one needs is located at the corner or in the neighborhood behind. I have been raving about my experience to my friends and clients and will absolutely stay there again."

Midi-Pyrenees Travel Tips

What to Expect near Your Midi-Pyrenees Vacation Rentals

The beautiful Midi-Pyrenees is set in the heart of southwest France and includes the cities of Toulouse, Foix, Cahors and Albi among many others. Its diverse, sparsely populated landscape, from the Tarn Gorges to the wooded hills of the Dordogne Valley, offer something for every visitor to enjoy. Quiet waterways for fishing, boating and walking, rugged mountain peaks, winter sports on the higher slopes and the religious center of pilgrimage at Lourdes are just some of the attractions. The area even has its own UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Cirque du Gavarnie. Small farms, dry stone walls and old shepherds’ huts are visible reminders of the former inhabitants who made their living from this land.

The Benefits of Midi-Pyrenees Accommodations

Most visitors to the area of the Midi-Pyrenees are looking for a quiet escape from busy city life, and Midi-Pyrenees villas offer just that. With no routines, no check-out times and no maids knocking on the door, it is the perfect answer for a relaxed, do-as-you-please vacation. Families find a spacious Midi-Pyrenees accommodation perfect for spreading out and doing their own thing. With well-appointed kitchens and dining areas, it is very easy to save money and eat well by shopping for fresh produce locally. Surrounded by unspoiled scenery and wildlife, staying in Midi-Pyrenees accommodations make good sense all round.

Places to Visit from Your Midi-Pyrenees Vacation Rentals

Toulouse is the capital of the Midi-Pyrenees area and dates back to pre-Christian times as the Gallic city of Tolosa. It has some of the most interesting 16th- and 17th-century Renaissance architecture in France, including the building which housed the Académie des Jeux Floraux in 1323 as well as the Bemberg Foundation which has a superb art collection spanning five centuries. The 18th-century town hall is also worth a visit.

Those who prefer more outdoor natural pursuits will prefer the Albi region, with its naturally formed Tarn River Gorges. It is ideal for walking and climbing as well as kayaking. Auch has a network of narrow streets just waiting to be discovered and the magnificent Cathedral of Sainte-Marie has some gorgeous stained glass windows in its classical façade. Older still are the ruins of the Ducal Castle at Foix which dates back to medieval times.

The Weather Around Midi-Pyrenees Villas

The Midi-Pyrenees region boasts around 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, making it one of the sunniest spots to stay in France. Throughout the summer, temperatures frequently exceed 25 C (77 F). The warm temperatures linger into October when a late “Indian summer” can usually be enjoyed. Winters are short and fairly mild, although the high peaks of the Pyrenees get plenty of snow which lasts into April. Spring is a popular time for visitors who enjoy hiking in the area. The fruit trees around the Tarn and Garonne districts are laden with showy blossoms.

Getting to Your Midi-Pyrenees Vacation Rentals

The main airports for those wishing to fly to their midi-Pyrenees accommodations are the Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees Airport, the Toulouse-Blagnac Airport and the Rodez-Marcillac Airport. The excellent French rail network is one of the best ways to travel around France and most towns are connected by TGV or TER regional express trains. Driving around the French countryside is easy but check the rules of the road as they do differ from other countries. For example, carrying reflective jackets is now compulsory and the use of radar-detectors is illegal, unlike in other countries.

Things to Do Around Your Midi-Pyrenees Accommodations

Those who appreciate art will enjoy visiting Marciac, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie and Cordes sur Ciel, all popular with painters, sculptors and musicians. The magnificent Pyrenees National Park offers pine forests and waterfalls with high-altitude lakes such as the Cirque du Gavarnie. Unique experiences can be found at the impressive viaducts of Pic du Midi and Millau. The hieroglyphs of Figeac are all that remains of a culture going back thousands of years.
