  • Magnifique propriété au calme,très bien située

    "Très ensoleillée, accueillante et propre. Beaucoup de place, grand séjour, grande cuisine superbement équipée et des lits de bonnes qualités. Le jardin est magnifique et bien entretenu, la piscine de taille agréable. Nous sommes venus avec nos amis, donc 6 adultes et 3 enfants et nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour "luxueux et authentique"! On se croit en pleine nature, mais les magasins ne sont pas loin du tout, de même pour le centre ville d'Aix et l’accès autoroute. Le quartier est très agréable, les photos sur google street view sont anciennes et c’est beaucoup plus beau en vrai. A quelques pas de la maison il est possible de prendre des chemins qui vous feront découvrir en quelques minutes des paysages grandioses. Nous avons fait de belles sorties à Cassis, Arles et dans le Luberon. Nous avons aussi visité Marseille, Cannes et même une journée à Monaco. Merci pour ce magnifique séjour. Nous allons très certainement revenir. Roger, Chantale Sophie, Igor, Hélène, Lucien, les Manus, de Bruxelles Belgique"

  • Home Away from Home

    "We lacked for nothing in this beautiful apartment. Incredibly well equipped with everything one could need, our apartment was spacious and lovely with beautiful antiques. For those of us who need to be connected 24/7, the wi fi was very fast and never let us down. We were close to restaurants in town, yet secluded behind a medieval wall, with a gorgeous garden. The owners, Elice and Jean Louis could not have been more gracious or generous. We loved our week here, and visited many chateaus in the Loire but were always very happy to come “home” every evening."

  • Perfect location and unit in Petite Venice

    "We just returned from a four night stay at this beautiful unit in Colmar. We stayed in the second-floor unit right next to the canal in the old town district of Colmar. The unit, location, and cleanliness we're just as pictured on the VRBO site. Nathalie was very good about meeting us after 6 PM and was always just a phone call away whenever we had any questions. Having access to the washing machine after a long trip was also very helpful. Her unit was very clean, large and well-equipped. As expected, this unit within a very busy area during the touristy day but was quite quiet and nice in the evening when all the tourist have gone home. Also very nice, was the fact that there is a farmers market less than a block from the unit. A great place to pick up produce, cheese, bakery, etc. Thank you again Nathalie for all of your help, we would not even consider staying anywhere else the next time we are in the Colmar area. It was a great springboard for viewing the Alsace wine region."

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.
