  • Great rental experience

    "We were very satisfied with our rental experience at the apartment Beverly, on Blvd St. Germaine. It was so spacious, with every amenity we needed and in a very good location. We really felt that we were having a very authentic Parisienne experience. We very much appreciated the excellent customer service which was demonstrated, from our request for a somewhat early arrival check-in, to the very prompt return of our security deposit ( the day after we got home ), to the retrieval and return of my cell phone which I left behind in the rush to be ready to leave on our last day. It also arrived in the mail the day after we got home. I cannot thank you enough for doing that for me. Only one suggestion. The clothes washer needs some kind of adjustment to the spin cycle, as it makes a loud noise when going thru that phase. Thanks again for a great rental experience!"

  • Very charming house, stunningly beautiful region, authentic Provence

    "This was the third time I stayed in this lovely house: I fell in love with it and the village of Saignon several years ago, because it still feels and looks like an authentic French Provence village, not a luxury touristic estate. The good surprise this year was the new top floor terrace, second kitchen and extra bedroom & very modern second bathroom at the top of the house, which means in summer you breakfast on the terrace looking out over the roman-tiled roofs of the entire village. This is in addition to: a downstairs hallway & utility room, a kitchen and large drawing room , all on the first floor; then a master bedroom and a large guest bedroom plus a bathroom and a small sewing room. The house wa stone-built to last centuries ago, so even at midday in August, the rooms inside are cool and restful. The décor is shabby elegant in the way decorators strive for; but here it is authentic. There's a combination of old family furniture, comfortable sofas you sink in, antique tiled floors, garden chairs in the kitchen, books that have been read and re-read in the bookcases; but good firm beds. It's got oodles of charm and enough modern conveniences to spend a great summer en famille. You need a car because the local buses are slow and come every hour or so only; the one going from Apt (the market town a couple of miles down the hill from Saignon), all the way to the TGV station at Avignon takes nearly two hours. The area is stunningly beautiful; you can walk across picture-book lavender fields; visit the region's chateaux and monasteries; attend the Avignon theatre festival in season (summer) as well as many summer classical music festivals; there's a municipal swimming pool for your teenagers at Apt. Further out is Aix en Provence with the greatest French opera festival in summer. Avignon had monuments and museums from the time it was the Pope's residence; it also has goos restaurants; and of course the entire countryside was where Cézanne, Picasso, Renoir, and many more painted. In short, I wish I wre back there now!...."

  • Beautiful rental in perfect location!

    "We enjoyed staying at this apartment during a recent 5 day visit to Avignon. The guest space was used by our daughter and new son-in-law, which gave them some privacy. The main unit was so beautiful, stone walls, beamed ceilings, comfortable furniture. It was great to have the garden space because we used it for several meals, and for sitting our with a glass of wine after a busy day. I would be happy to recommend this property to a friend or relative and would be happy to return for another visit myself!"

Alpes - Pays-de-Savoie Travel Tips

Savoie Vacation Rentals Are Perfect at Any Time of Year

The Savoie region of France has perfect hiking and biking weather during the summer and ideal skiing conditions in winter. With great weather, wonderful scenery and a beautiful region to explore, Savoie accommodations are a perfect destination at any time of year. Rental properties here provide visitors with all the comforts of home, such as space and the freedom to come and go as you please. Many properties in this area offer easy access to the famous ski resorts of the Alps.

The Attractions near Savoie Accommodations

Savoie villas are situated in a region with many historic sites. The town of Annecy is home to many, such as its famous island jail, the Palais de I’Isle. This 12th-century prison is one of the most photographed buildings in France. There is also the Chateau d’Annacy, or Annecy Castle, the 16th-century Cathedral of Saint-Pierre with its artworks and antiquities, and the romantic arches and architecture of the rue Sainte-Claire. Of particular interest is the Pont des Amours (the Lovers’ Bridge) which is a charming modern iron bridge.

Ideal for Winter Sports Enthusiasts and Those Seeking Relaxation

This mountainous region boasts over 60 ski resorts, Savoie vacation rentals are ideal bases for winter sports enthusiasts. The most famous of the ski areas is Charmonix-Mont-Blanc, the site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924. Mont Blanc is over 4,800 meters high and one of the most visited natural sites in the world. Winter and summer visitors alike will enjoy the incredible views from the cable car as it makes its way to Aiguille du Midi. The world renowned 3 Vallees is the largest ski resort in the world with over 1,400 square kilometers of slopes. The unique area of Espace Killy offers year-round skiing and is one of the biggest of its type in Europe.

During summer, the slopes are ideal for hiking and mountain bikers, with hundreds of kilometers of great trails, some of which can only be found with guides. It is also ideal for anglers and those who enjoy water-based activities such as boating and fishing, thanks to the area's large lakes and fresh water rivers. Lake Bourget is the largest and deepest lake in France and Lake Aiguebelette is known as the cleanest and quietest of the lakes due to a ban on motorboats.

For centuries, visitors have come to Savoie to "take the waters" and the region continues to attract visitors to the four hydrotherapy centers. These four locations are Aix-les-Bains, Brides-les-Bains, Challes-les-Eaux and La Lechere.

Savoie Villas Are Ideal for Exploring French Cuisine

Generally, France is famous for its cuisine, and the Savoie region has its own specialty dishes and products. Pork is one of the staple meats and used in many ways. It is often cured, used in dishes such as doits, promoniers de Tarentaise, and saucisses de Magland. Other meats, such as donkey, goat and mutton are also common. The many rivers and lakes guarantee a plentiful supply of fresh fish and visitors will find wonderful dishes with trout, salmon, pike and perch on most menus.

Another delight of France is its wine and this region produces some spectacular white wines from grapes such as Altesse, Chasselas, Gringet, Jacquere and Roussanne. The grapes grown for red wines here are Garmay, Mondeuse and the wonderful Pinot.

A local custom in Savoie is La Grolle, the cup of friendship. According to local legend, the drink was created by local shepherds mixing alcohol and coffee in a wooden shoe, a grolle. These days, it is a wooden bowl with several spouts that is passed around. Each person takes a turn to drink until the bowl is empty.
