    "We loved the apartment the location is wonderful. It is right in the heart of Marais. The apartment has everything one would want except for maybe more comfortable living room chairs, but it is Paris so one hopefully doesn't spend much time sitting around. The apartment had coffee and tea and soft drinks we could use and did, but my favorite was the terry cloth robes that were provided for each person and changed mid week when the towels were changed. It was such a nice extra thing. I would definitely stay here again. The owner was very helpful arranged cabs to the airport and was available by phone or email for any questions we might have."

  • Paris Stay

    "This was my second stay at this rental and I loved it! There is nothing better than a balcony that you can use for breakfast and glasses of wine in the evening, especially when it faces the Eiffel Tower! I have already recommended the flat to my friends and they loved it too. I will definitely be back and couldn't be happier with the accommodations and with the friendliness of its owners."

  • Loire Valley Vacation

    "My husband and I (60's) and our son and daughter-in-law (30's) appreciated having 2 bathrooms. The property was very well maintained and as advertised. The owner was very helpful with recommendations for meals and shopping and we loved being greeted with a jar of apricot jam. We spent a week with the village as home base and with excursions to see the chateaux each day. We walked out to one of the excellent boulangers each morning, found a pleasant small restaurant for dinner and an outstanding boucherie for picnic supplies. There is a lovely path along the Cher for evening walks. I would definitely return and spend more time just enjoying the property!"

Rhone-Alpes Travel Tips

Rhone Alpes Vacation Rentals to Explore Eastern France

The Rhone Alpes region is located on the eastern border of France. Named after the Rhone River and the famous Alps mountain range, it is the on the border of both Italy and Switzerland. Like all regions in France, it is made up of several areas, called departments. This region has eight departments: Ain, Ardeche, Drome, Haute-Savoie, Isere, Loire, Rhone and Savoie. Due to its proximity to the Alps and Massif Central mountain ranges as well as to the Mediterranean Sea, the region has many influences on its climate. It is known to be variable; summers can be hot and humid and winters are cold and snowy. The region’s mountains are an attraction for winter sports enthusiasts.

Vacationers in the region have a wide choice of options for accommodation. There are charming hotels, local homes offering bed and breakfast accommodations, or rental properties. Many tourists choose Rhone Alpes vacation rentals as an excellent alternative to hotels. These properties provide many advantages, such as much more space than a hotel room, the ability to relax in a home environment, and the chance to enjoy many luxuries provided in such properties.

This is one of the largest art galleries in France and is housed in a 17th-century former convent. On display here are works from some of the world’s most renowned artists.
