Recent France reviews

  • Herrlich!

    "Wir haben unseren Familienurlaub (2 EW, 3 Kinder 8, 11 und 14 Jahre alt) in der Ferienwohnung von Mme. und M. Birre verbracht. Es war unser erster Frankreichurlaub und wir waren begeistert. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst. Der Pool ist gepflegt und immer sauber. Schön ist, dass Mme. Birre auch deutsch spricht und gerne Tipps für Ausflüge und Unternehmungen gibt. Die Lage insgesamt ist schön ruhig und doch so zentral, dass man in kurzer Zeit Hauptstraßen in alle Richtungen erreicht. Nur zu empfehlen!"

  • Perfect In Every Way!

    "Our family of four had a FANTASTIC stay! The home is charming, and provides the perfect location for visiting the Normandy Beaches, Mont St. Michel, Bayeux, and the Pays d'Auge region. Also, Port-en-Bessin is a great place to explore with quaint restaurants, friendly people and harbor views (from almost every window in the home). Laurence is a joy to work with and even went out of her way to help us get a dinner reservation at her favorite restaurant that was completely booked for the evening. We have traveled all over the world, always renting homes, and this home is one our new favorites. Thanks, Laurence!"

  • Stepping into a dream

    "We stayed at this amazing house during August with our 2 kids and grandparents. We were speechless when we arrived and realized that the place looks even more amazing than what we saw in the photos. Every corner of the house got a special attention in design and comfort. Every door we opened and every room we walked into we gasped in amaze. It was BEAUTIFUL!!!! But that is not all... the reception we got and our evening with the host was unmatched to any other house we have ever rented (and we rent a lot). Everything we needed was taken care of and the response to our needs was immediate. We strongly suggest you read the notes provided by Janice. Every recommendation proved itself from sites to restaurants to wines and markets. You will truly live a dream once you step into this amazing home. THANK YOU JANICE! We will come 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.
