France

Holiday cottages in France offer the perfect opportunity to explore wonderful culture and heritage while you relax and unwind in complete comfort. In fact there are few better ways to immerse yourself in the local community and enjoy a completely unique and authentic French experience than a holiday cottage. But with so much fantastic variety you’re going to be a little spoiled for choice, so we’re going to make a few suggestions for the best places to enjoy your holiday in France.

Famed for romance, gastronomy, art and culture, for many, Paris is the French ideal. Holiday cottages in and around the ‘City of Light’ often offer unrivalled access to its many attractions. Take a bird’s eye view from the Eiffel Tower, enjoy the masterpieces in the Louvre or just go for a leisurely stroll in the park, a holiday home in the capital presents you with a wealth of welcome options. Then again, you may choose a holiday over the channel to get away from it all, soak up the relaxing ambience and bask in a more inviting climate. If this is the case then we’d highly recommend taking a look at our featured French holiday cottages on the Riviera. Renowned for glamour, golden sands, sparkling blue waters and grandiose cultural celebrations, it’s the perfect place to join the jet set or sit back and relax by the pool! If you’re seeking more rural pastures then the northern France is the perfect place to get out and explore the country's heritage. Alongside spectacular castles and medieval towns there’s a wonderful culture of wine and gastronomy to enjoy. If all that sounds a little passive then, thankfully, the north is filled with fantastic locations to get out and about.

Wherever you choose to enjoy your break, you’ll find a wealth of choice in our featured French cottages. In fact, one of France's biggest attractions is that it’s an all year round destination, with activities to satisfy in every season. Beach breaks are one of the highlights of the summer months, and you’ll find a wealth of fantastic stretches of coastline, offering surfing, sailing, or the well-earned opportunity to sit and soak up the sun. The rural regions offer rolling landscapes that are perfect for exploring on foot or by bike. Then of course there are the vineyards and historic regions for those looking to explore France's heritage. And things barely cool down in the winter months, as thousands of holidaymakers take a short trip to the Alps to enjoy snow sports, the wonderful après-ski and the stunning scenery.

If you're ready to begin your own exploration take a look at our featured holiday cottages in France today.
