  • Great to come home to

    "My sister and I spent two weeks here in September. We felt Le Port was a perfect location. We loved the neighborhood, the local groceries, restaurants, and the view and fresh air from the balcony. It's true, the buses are crowded. We bet on whether we would ever get a seat on the 81. But, we always got where we wanted to go. The apartment is full of character, comfortable, and Sandra is very available to help. We had a great time, and we also found that good jazz station on the shortwave. Olivia does it good."

  • Rental 60412

    "WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the gite(1)! It is set amid the olive trees which have lovely foliage. Nicole told us that the olives will be harvested by hand in Nov. And Dec. Despite the presence of oak trees loaded with acorns, no squirrels were present- something which amazed us! The patio provides a great place to relax and enjoy the warm breeze. We are in the heart of Aix now enjoying the hustle and bustle of the city but at times we miss the serenity we found at the gite in St. Cannat and the friendly owners there.Would definitely recommend!!"

  • Excellent location

    "Stayed in this location for one week and found everything exactly as stated by the owner as true. Located in the newer part of Paris but just walking distance to older charming neighborhoods. Having the convenience of the Monoprix and the Hotel Novatel next door was great. There is also a farmers market 2x's a week just around the corner to enjoy the Paris market atmosphere. The building is named the Tour Totem and is safe and has most of the modern amenities except for a dishwasher and clothes dryer. Kitchen is well stocked for those wanting to eat in. The furnishings, towels and bedding are clean but a little dated and worn. We found the apt to be very spacious and comfortable and enjoyed the view immensely. We would recommend this apt due to the view and location and hope to return someday!"

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.

The capital city of Lyon, in the Rhone area, dates back over 2,000 years and is a popular area for vacationers. It is known for its spectacular architecture of Renaissance period buildings. This is France’s second city, after Paris, and is also known as the capital of French cuisine.

Among the many sights to visit in Lyon are the Roman ruins set along the hillside of Fourviere, the Fourviere Basilica, the theatre of Fourviere and the Gallo-Roman Museum.

These are just two of the many beautiful religious structures of the city. A not-to-be-missed attraction for visitors to Lyon is the area of Vieux Lyon. This medieval quarter has narrow, cobbled streets filled with shops and restaurants. There are also a variety of museums to explore, such as the Musee des beauz-arts de Lyon.
