  • Awesome!

    "We just got back from a trip to Paris and had the most wonderful stay here! We came for a family trip with our 3 children and we all loved it. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen and living room were so nice. The area was also incredible, we were right in the middle of the Marais with tons of shops and restaurants to choose from. We felt like a Parisian family every morning, picking up bakery goods and coffee and eating it in our apartment! Francois, who was our contact was so helpful and sweet. He called us a cab at the end and gave us great advice about Paris. One thing I would recommend is bring some top sheets, the beds don't come with top sheets so you are forced to sleep under the comforter."

  • A gem of a rural retreat in idyllic surroundings

    "This property has been extremely well renovated. It has been very tastefully furnished to a very high standard and decorated as befits an old cottage but at the same time has a very well equipped kitchen with everything one could possibly want during a self catering stay (including a perfect and much appreciated welcoming pack) + a lovely modern bathroom. A lot of attention to detail is evident in the bedrooms and the beautiful lounge. The standard throughout is excellent - you won't be disappointed and I would definitely recommend to friends and relations for a stay in this lovely rural area with charming villages close by excellent restaurants providing wonderful food and wine (as only the French can do) and a national park/forest to walk or cycle it off! Thank you for a wonderful stay."

  • Wonderful stay

    "Bonjour Pascal I would like to thank you for arranging the apartment in Rue De Buci for our recent week in Paris. Once again we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The apartment is in a fantastic location and was very functional for two couples and at a reasonable price. The previous apartments you arranged for us in Rue Malar and Rue Cler also exceeded our expectations. I would also like to express my appreciation for arranging transport from the airport to the apartment it certainly took the stress out of getting to our apartment after a long flight from Australia I look forward to utilising your services again in the not too distant future."

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.
