Blue Mountains, ON
I want to thank for planning a perfect trip to France. We are not the easiest of clients as we change our minds a lot, as you know! Your knowledge of France is so much better than mine although I was raised there, and you were able to give us the most pertinent information on the cities and sites to see. I think people think they will save money by not using a travel agency but in fact it’s exactly the opposite because due to your expertise we saved both money and time…..So thank you again for a very well planned trip and we’ ll book again next year. (Travelled -Aug 2016)
Planning a trip to France was on my and my husband’s radar since the early years of our marriage. Thirty years and two grown children later, the time came for us to finally realize our dream. It did not take long, however, for that dream to turn into a nightmare as we attempted to navigate through online travel sites to plan the perfect vacation. Thankfully, and through close friends, we were quickly put in touch with Carol at Your Vacation Home. It is no overstatement to say that she was a godsend! Within days, our trip was taking shape with every possible detail attended to and addressed. Her attention to detail was second to none and her knowledge of the area and her properties was exceptional. From start to finish, our vacation was magical – no surprises, no disappointments – and her ongoing support and patient communication throughout the planning process was outstanding. We cannot recommend Carol’s services more highly; from now on, she will be our first point of contact when planning our getaways. Thank you, Carol!

“When my family and friends rented a villa in the south of France in August of 2007, it allowed us to embrace a lifestyle instead of traveling as tourists. It is the perfect vacation; a combination of day trips to the most beautiful destinations in France, and lazy days when the only thing on the agenda is lying by the pool and making a wonderful meal. Booking our villa through YOUR VACATION HOME exceeded all of our expectations. Carol Murray, the owner of the company visits many of the available properties every year to ensure that they are the very best quality and offer the caliber of homes that her clients expect.Carol also booked our hotel in Spain, our train travel and car rentals, it was a service we really couldn’t do without.
We are already planning our next vacation and would not consider European travel without YOUR VACATION HOME, it is the very best.” May 22nd, 2008
“Villa Della Pieve was outstanding – gorgeous villa, property and the pool areaI’ve been referring folks to you regarding villa rentals – including my luncheon date today! Hopefully, you get some additional business from me! I’m a fan!” (rented Villa Della Pieve, Umbria, Italy) June 2011
“Your service was excellent from the first phone call untl after we returned. We have recommended your agency to many others” (rented Gli Oleandri in Tuscany)
“Great thanks to Carol Murray of “Your Vacation Home” who managed to make our honeymoon a memory that will last forever! Our property in Tuscany was cozy, comfortable and simply wonderful!” (rented Beppe in Tuscany)
“Our vacation in Prague could not have been much better! We would certainly use your agency again and would willingly recommend you to others.” (rented Husova apt. in Prague)
“We have been clients of Carol Murray going on ten years now. She has booked us some very lovely holidays in France, England and Asia. These arrangements included wonderful apartments in Paris (rue du Temple, rue Tournelles), Villefranche sur Mer, and London (Fulham and Kensington) as well as hotels in Paris, and Aix and Asia.” We highly recommend this travel service!
“This was our first experience in renting a house and we would most definitely do it again! Our trip was fantastic- We ate, drank and made merry all week and did a bit of sightseeing too, which was wonderful…” (rented Mas du Cotton, Provence)
“”Carol Murray hooked me up with a 1 wk rental in Tuscany and it was amazing. It had a house and cottage on the property with a gorgeous pool and magnificent views. What was key, was that we were in the dead center of each town that we wanted to visit, so it allowed us to take them all in as day trips and then relax at the end of the day at the pool with a bottle of the local wine. While it slept 10, we were only a party of 7 and it cost us under $500 Cdn each (would have been under $400 ea per wk if we had 10)!! Carol was invaluable as we waded thru her huge catalogue of properties since she had stayed at many and was able to advise us of which ones where better than others and why. Her site just shows a random sample, but she has about 150 spots in Tuscany alone” (rented Casa Collina in Tuscany)

We highly recommend Carol Murray and her associates to help plan your next vacation. We have relied on Carol for 5 European trips since 2002, which have included stays in England, France, Spain, Italy and Sicily. Carol and her team are knowledgeable, courteous, and extremely helpful and thorough. They offer “one-stop shopping”, arranging flights, car rental, weekly rental homes, villas and apartments, in both urban and rural settings, as well as shorter hotel stays. You will not be disappointed with the wide array of excellent accommodations Carol has to offer. We especially loved our villa in San Gimignano, Tuscany, our Montparnasse apartment in Paris, and our favourite, the Trulli house in Puglia, Italy. We have had no “unpleasant surprises” on any of our trips, which have all gone smoothly and without a hitch. Carol is a great choice for all your vacation needs!
“My 3 week holiday in Tuscany was a dream come true! Carol Murray at “Your Vacation Home” not only took care of all the arrangements in an efficient and competent manner, but she also anticipated my requests, questions, and wishes. My accomodation in Italy was perfectly suited to my needs, and gave us a sense of “living” in Tuscany and not just “visiting”. “Your Vacation Home” created my ideal holiday and I will continue to work with them in my continuing travel adventures…” (rented Il Caggio)
