Île-de-France – the heart of France

Shoot for the very heart of France by opting to bed down in Île-de-France vacation rentals this year. Peppering the buzzing capital, its outskirts and the countryside that surrounds it, they offer real immersion in Paris. Some spill onto rooftops that overlook the skeletal wrought iron silhouette of the Eiffel Tower. Others hide between boulangeries and bistros in the Latin Quarter. Camera-magnetizing draws, like Notre Dame and Montmartre, might be within walking distance. So, too, might world-class museums like the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. They really are stays to remember.

Things to do

Île-de-France – home to France's best museums

There's little doubt that the Île-de-France is home to the finest museums in the country. Top of the list comes the Louvre. You'll glimpse the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo there – prepare to be wowed. There's the majestic Musee d'Orsay, a vintage train station-cum-exhibition space where Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Degas and more make their mark. The Centre Pompidou and its fusion of tech architecture and modernist art is ready to boggle the brain, too. And there's the opulent Palace of Versailles, its hall of mirrors and exuberant chambers an image of historic royal France.

Activities

Sightseers assemble in Île-de-France vacation rentals

Be in no doubt that staying in Île-de-France means staying in one of France's sightseeing hotspots. No matter where you're sleeping, Paris is within reach. Hop-on, hop-off buses whiz through that great metropolis all year round, showcasing a medley of treats that runs from the Eiffel Tower to the Arc de Triomphe. Guided walking tours can reveal Gothic churches and medieval marketplaces in the Latin Quarter, while museum curators wait with masterworks by Picasso and Rodin and more. Art of a different kind lurks in the kitchens, home to chefs ready to reveal the secrets of French cuisine.

Weather

Île-de-France – 4 seasons of amazement

The whole region of the Île-de-France follows a clear 4-season pattern. There are warm summers, between June and August, when the Chevreuse Valley blooms into life and people picnic in the parks of Paris. There are handsome falls, in September and October, when the forests of Fontainebleau and Senart do a fine impression of New England changing color. Winters – from November to March – can be cold, but they do bring sporting crowds to Paris's rugby grounds and football arenas. Spring is a great balance between crowds and weather – not too hot, not too busy.

Natural features

Île-de-France fuses metropolis and majestic nature

While much of the Île-de-France is dominated by the sprawling cityscape of Paris, there's still loads of the region left to nature. You can easily seek out Île-de-France vacation rentals far from the streets and sights. Some fringe the idyllic Chevreuse Valley. It's dotted with crooked farms and rolling fields, cut-through by wooded rivers and shrouded by the occasional chateau-topped hillside. South-west of the capital is the spreading Forest of Fontainebleau, known for its gnarled boulders and sculpted gorges. In the north is the Regional Natural Park Oise Pays de France, a patchwork of heaths and grasslands and untamed forestry.
