  • Perfect spot to explore the many pituresque villages of the Luberon area in the south of France.

    "Our week at Villa Terre Neuve was a wonderful experience! We were able to explore 16 of the quaint historic villages in the area, go to numerous markets which happen on different days of the week in different villages and get a real feel for the south of France, it's culture, history and people. It is a photographers paradise. Though it was a bit too cool to enjoy a swim in the pool, we had cocktails and appetizers each evening by the pool just enjoying the beautiful garden, fresh air and quiet before dinner. What a great get-away!"

  • Excellent Experience

    "We originally reserved another apartment for our stay, but the property manager unexpectedly cancelled our reservation one month prior to our arrival which left us scrambling at the last minute to find another place to stay. When finding another place, I felt it was important to speak to the owner of the property by phone to confirm our arrangements, not just handle it by email or deal solely with the property manager. When I first inquired about this property, I asked for a call and the owner contacted me immediately, and I was able to reach her by email or phone whenever necessary. This was a huge reassurance throughout the process. The apartment was clean and comfortable, everything as stated in the listing. The bed was very comfortable, and the room off the living room with the toilet was just fine. For anyone in the US, it might be a little odd, but I would even consider it an inconvenience when you consider everything else was perfect. Perhaps the greatest thing of all was the location. This apartment is in the most perfect part of Paris with the Seine, Louvre, Notre Dame, Metro stations and Boulevard St. Germain within easy walking distance. The cafes and outside markets that line Rue de Buci and this entire area are wonderful. Despite the lovely cafes and "night life," the apartment was far enough away where it was quiet and peaceful and you can get a great nights sleep before exploring the city. Our nightly walks on the banks of the Seine are memories we will cherish forever. If anyone needs a reference for this apartment, I'm glad to provide it. Just ask the owner for my contact information."

Germany Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Germany Vacation Rentals

Most visitors to Germany travel in the warmer summer months that run from May through September. The peak travel season is typically during June and July. In general, summer days are long with the sun only setting after eight at night. This allows plenty of time for sightseeing and other activities. In the winter, the temperatures range from mild to freezing depending on where you are in Germany. The northern and eastern parts frequently get heavy snowfall during December and January. In the south and more mountainous regions, the snow and scenic beauty attract many visitors in the wintertime.

Attractions and Activities at Germany Lodging

Germany has a rich and diverse history. In almost every town or city, there are buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, beautiful churches or cathedrals, and local legends that have become part of the local traditions. There are many museums in Germany catering to a wide range of interests. Far from boring showcase-type exhibits, modern museums include video, sound and actual artifacts to bring history to life. While traditions remain strong, Germany is a modern nation and this is reflected in the high-tech modern style of living in the cities. Restaurants and bars range from traditional eateries to quirky and sometimes bizarre-themed venues. Most people visit Germany to take in the ancient castles, museums and churches. In the summertime, the best way to explore is on foot. Enjoy a cup of coffee at a street side café and browse through the shops in between your visits to museums.

Germany Travel Tips

Getting around Germany is easy but before you set out, make sure you have a good guidebook with you. In this way, you can plan some of your travel routes and make sure you get to the sights that you really want to see. If you plan to travel by train or are spending some time in one particular city, look into purchasing a travel pass. This is often far more affordable than single route tickets. Germany is relatively safe but be aware of walking around alone at night. Like most major cities, there is always a risk of becoming a target for crime.

Getting to and Around Germany

Germany takes up a large part of Central Europe and is easily accessible by air, land and sea. The harbor at Hamburg is one of the largest and busiest in the world. While it is mostly cargo that is transported, several worldwide cruise liners also dock at Hamburg. If you already reside or are traveling in Europe, one of the best ways to get around is by train. There is an extensive rail network in Germany that links it up with the rest of Europe. High-speed intercity trains are a convenient way of traveling longer distances. Smaller towns and villages can be reached on standard trains. Some of the rail routes, such as the one from Cologne and Dusseldorf to Frankfurt, follow the scenic route along the Rhine River. This is one of the best ways to see the countryside.

There is also an extensive road network; however, you do need to be confident in your driving ability. The high-speed autobahns and inner city congestion can be somewhat intimidating if you are not used to it. Germany has several efficient international airports. The busiest is Frankfurt International Airport. This is mostly due to its central location within Germany and Europe. Other international airports include Berlin Airport and Munich Airport. From these airports, you can get domestic connections on to other cities such as Dusseldorf, Bonn, Hamburg, and Dresden.
