  • Most beautiful place in Provence

    "The Mas is more beautiful than even the photographs. The owner, Henri, who speaks French and English, made us so welcome to this special part of Provence. The house has 6 bedrooms, all with bathrooms en suite, all with the choice of beds together for a king size bed or twins. The kitchen is totally equipped and Brigitte is available to make delicious meals and provide the initial stock of items. Gracefully designed and exceptionally clean , it offers mid week towel exchanges and light cleaning. The property, which looks out over the countryside, has been beautifully landscaped and is maintained to that standard. Totally private, yet close to Avignon, Abbaye de Senanque, Venasque , Pont du Gard and Arles for day trips. The graceful infinity pool is a welcome relief after a day's walking, cycling or touring. Henri the owner is very helpful on local information, restaurants, and sights. While le Beaucet has only one restaurant, we enjoyed restaurants in Venasque, St Didier and Pernes les Fountaines. As this is my second visit to this site, I would definitely recommend it to large families, groups of walkers and cyclists, two or three couples and groups of artists who enjoy the special colours of Provence. Ten different well marked walking circuits lead from the Mas over the stunning mountains of Vaucluse as well as cycling paths. Definitely a jewel in a very special site."

  • Fabulous apartment!

    "We spent a week here in early August and had a ball! Before getting started, we would like to thank the apt. owner and her assistant who met us at the apartment and gave us a brief walk through, passed along the keys, etc. Both individuals were pleasant and easy to deal with. That said, the location is excellent, one block over from the Canal St. Martin.....a perfect spot to share a bottle of champagne, bread and cheese on a warm summer evening. We should add that there were numerous warm summer evenings .....and the vertical fan in the apt did come in handy. Overall, the apartment is quite nice....and well equipped, with a large kitchen (three times the size of kitchen in the apartment we had rented the week before on the Ile Saint-Louis). There is a grocery store conveniently located 200 yards away and the entire area is chock-a-block full of fun and interesting places to eat and sip a glass of champagne. And let's not forget the quirky, as in Le Comptoir Général -- which has an Afrocentric, offbeat, tropical air about it. Words cannot accurately describe the you must drop by and have a look! The Hotel du Nord is several blocks over -- a good spot to get frogs legs and duck confit (quick side note: neither of us had seen the classic 1938 film 'Hotel du Nord' and were pleased to discover the DVD (and several others) in the apartment). The Cambodian restaurant at the end of the block does a brisk business and had a 30+ minute wait the evening we dropped by. Our solution was to order takeout from there and bring it back to the apartment. It was excellent! Unfortunately -- it being August -- a number of nearby spots that we were interested in visiting for dinner (Philou, Chez Marie Louise, Les Bistrot des Oies) were closed for the summer vacation. The upside of this is that we will just have to plan a return visit to Chez Grisette in June or July! A final suggestion: take a 2 1/2 canal ride. It was relaxing and quite interesting -- particularly the lengthy vaulted tunnel that passes beneath the Bastille. That was something! We went mid-week on a 9:45 am boat ( there were no more than 35 people aboard and the shipboard commentary was very good."

Greece Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Travel to Greece Vacation Rentals

Greece enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with little regional variation. Summers are typically hot and dry, and rain occurs mostly in the cooler winter months. For at least seven months of the year, Greece enjoys a warm climate. The most pleasant months are generally May to June and September to October. July and August can get particularly hot, and you will find that most locals make use of a midday siesta to avoid the extreme heat. Many shops and restaurants close between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. which can be inconvenient if you are not aware of this. If you want to enjoy the warm climate and beaches, summertime is definitely the best time to visit Greece. If you have more of an interest in Greek culture and history then you may enjoy traveling in the off-peak season. Many of the major sites are found in and around the capital Athens which can get very crowded during the busy tourist season. It’s often more pleasant to travel around in slightly cooler weather and you can linger longer at the sites and attractions that interest you.

To get to Greece, there are number of different transport options. For travelers from North America or northern Europe, it will be most convenient to fly into Athens and from there connect on to your domestic destination. The Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport is located in Sparta which is just outside of Athens. The airport is the country’s busiest and hosts several international airlines. There are regular daily scheduled flights between Athens and most European cities. Travelers from North America and other parts of the world may need to route via London, Amsterdam or Madrid and then connect to Athens. For visitors from the eastern parts of Europe, there are good rail connections with Thessaloniki which is Greece’s main rail hub.

It was turned into a residential area in the 19th century. Although today it is mostly ruins, there are still several interesting sites worth visiting. Delphi is located approximately 100 miles northwest of Athens. It was once considered to be cultural heart of Greece and is linked to several well-known Greek legends.
