  • Paris dream come true

    "When your hosts are there to greet you at the train station on arrival to Paris, you know you've found something special. Marie and Pascal make it a point to meet all the renters of their lovely apartment either at the train station or the airport. This ensures that you find your way safely and efficiently and also gives you a first introduction to Paris, your hosts, and your new temporary home and neighborhood. They go an extra step to provide you with a cell phone for us throughout the visit. Whether to coordinate meeting Marie after Pascal picks you up at the airport or simply to touch base with questions during the stay, the cell is yours to use as needed. We were fortunate to have a wonderful week in the studio apartment fulfilling our goal of spending a short time living as Parisians. While the apartment is small, it feels roomy because of the carefully planned layout and the use of mirrors. Marie has thought of everything and when a need arose (extra trash sacks, grocery bags, etc), we simply looked around confident that Marie had it there. We were never disappointed. WiFi, cable TV, electrical adapters, robes, all included. The ability to wash clothes and a dishwasher available, plus a phone with free calling to the the US were among the many thoughtful amenities. As Marie described, she wants her guest to experience the conveniences that she herself enjoys when she travels. She was 100% successful. The bathroom included the luxury of towel warmers. The shower had great pressure and warm water always available. There is ample closet space and hangers. The kitchen lacked for nothing and all appliances worked perfectly. We loved the two balconies even during our January visit that allowed us morning and evening views of the boulevard. We love the 8th Arrondissement neighborhood near Gare St Lazare. It is elegant, safe, and very convenient to shopping including the grand magasins. We found Marie's Practical Tour to be a wonderful introduction to the area and Paris. We could not have been happier with our week. Coming home in the evenings to the stately door on Haussmann, entering the carriage way, the marble foyer, the elegant elevator, and then living in the comfortable and perfectly planned apartment all contributed to achieving our dream visit. We are confident that any and all who rent this apartment will enjoy the amenities and the extraordinary care provided by Marie and Pascal. We are looking forward to our next visit."

Spain Travel Tips

Visitors to Spain Vacation Rentals

Spain attracts travelers who enjoy the sunshine and a great vacation vibe. The Spanish people are known for their festive nature where almost anything is an excuse to have a celebration. There are many age-old traditions such as bull fighting and the running of the bulls that still take place today. Festivals and events take place throughout the summer season, and visitors can join in and enjoy the celebrations. For those with an interest in art, culture, history and architecture, Spain offers a wide variety of museums and historical attractions. Outdoor adventurers can enjoy trekking and hiking in the northern Pyrenees mountains. Beach lovers can laze on the many beautiful beaches along the coast.

Traveling to Spain Villas

Spain has more than 30 international airports. The primary international airport, however, is Madrid. For flights from across the Atlantic and other parts of the world, you will most likely first fly into Madrid before connecting on to your domestic destination. If you are already in Europe, you can take advantage of the many low-cost airline deals that fly to the various smaller international airports. From London, for example, you can get direct flights to Ibiza or Majorca. In Spain, there are frequent domestic flights connecting the various cities. Once there, one of the best ways to get around is by bus. While there is an extensive rail network, it does not include stops in many of the smaller coastal towns. Car hire is easily available if you want to explore independently. The country roads are generally not too congested but city traffic can be somewhat chaotic.

Top Spain Travel Attractions

Spain has a little bit of everything: A rich cultural heritage, vibrant nightlife, excellent dining, beautiful beaches, outdoor adventures and much more are available. For a cultural experience, visit the vibrant cities of Barcelona or Madrid. In these cities, you can be amazed by the artistic architectural styles, visit beautiful cathedrals and ancient museums. A big part of the modern-day culture is football and it is an experience to watch one of the local games in the stadiums. Spanish people are generally friendly and you can soon find yourself as part of the crowd. Just make sure that you are supporting the same teams as your new friends.

Madrid is known for its excellent nightlife. Be prepared for an all-night dancing expedition if you do plan to head out. Most clubs only open at midnight and close when the sun comes up the next morning. The various coastal regions are a bustle of activity during the summer months. Spend the days lazing on the beach, enjoying a leisurely cruise sailing or fishing on the Mediterranean Sea. The islands of Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza are known to be the playground for the rich and famous. If you want to do some celebrity spotting, this is the place to be. Spain has an extensive wine region and the majority of the wines are sold locally. Many blends and cultivars are unique to Spain.

Best Seasons to Visit Spain

Spain is known throughout Europe as a summer vacation destination. The peak travel season is during July and August as literally millions of visitors flock to the warm sunshine and beautiful beaches along the coast. Spain enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate which results in long, dry summer days. The weather starts to warm from April and stays mild until early October along the coastal regions. Travelers who want to avoid the summer crowds can travel earlier or later in the season. If you want to experience the cultural side of Spain, then plan your travels around Holy Week which is the start of many festivals. Other events take place throughout the summer season.
