France is a country of contrasts, from the rocky coastline of Brittany to the majestic mountains of the French Alps, or the sandy beaches of the Côte d'Azur. There is something for everyone, whether you are looking for sporting activities, relaxation, culture or entertainment. Rather than being cooped up in hotel accommodation, why not think about renting a beachfront villa or a holiday flat? You can organise your days as you wish, take a siesta to replenish your energy, and cook the food your family loves best.
In winter you can go skiing in the Alps, in summer delight in the picturesque countryside of the Dordogne. Go surfing by the sandy beaches of Biarritz, or take a trip along the Loire Valley, visiting its magnificent castles on the way. Whether you love to be by the sea or walking through a forest, the Ile de Ré will delight you. Interested in architecture? Don't miss the wonderful cathedrals of Chartres and Reims, or the medieval city of Albi, now a World Heritage Site. Bordeaux has a reputation for being the world capital of wine, and is also a haven for lovers of architecture and museums. Provence is as pretty as a picture with its olive groves, sunflowers and fields of lavender.
Disneyland on the outskirts of Paris may be the most popular destination for children in France, but there is a variety of attractions no matter which region you stay in. Families holidaying in Brittany will be able to visit Le Village Gaulois, a theme park in Pleumeur-Bodou which also has boats for hire. Another attraction in Pleumeur-Bodou is the Cosmopolis Planetarium. Staying in Poitou-Charentes? Don't miss the Vallée des Singes or Monkey Valley in Le Gureau, Vienne. Here, apes and primates can be seen roaming the park freely; there is also a mini-farm and play area. Animal lovers visiting the Pyrenées-Atlantiques can make a trip to Asson Zoo to see an array of wild animals from tigers to kangaroos and marmoset to snow panthers.
Renting self-catering accommodation is the ideal way to bring down the cost of your holiday in France. If you love the countryside, a holiday cottage in a village will bring you closer to it. Do you prefer the beach? A seaside apartment will be more spacious than a hotel room, as well as saving you money. Have a look at our unbiased customer reviews before you make your booking. Whatever the location and the type of rental accommodation you choose, you can rest assured that we will give you the very best in value.
