With the country being so close to the UK you can get there quickly by train or ferry, there is no excuse for not being able to take a holiday in France, whether it is for a mini-break or your main annual holiday.
There are plenty of reasons to do so, with Paris – the country’s capital – often proving the main destination for many tourists who flock to see famous attractions, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and to stroll along the Champs-Élysées. Whilst this might sound like the obvious route to take, it may not be such a relaxing holiday if you find yourselves amongst the masses going from one popular attraction to another.
Instead – to get a real break from everyday life – stay in one of our luxury cottages that offer all the modern conveniences and luxurious extras that you do not get to enjoy at home.
From such a relaxing holiday base, you can explore the coastal region of Brittany with its great beaches and reinvigorating sea air.
Those who like a bit more activity than strolling along the coast will enjoy cycling through Normandy, which is a great way to take in the beautiful scenery and admire abbeys. There will be something for everyone, from the history buff to the wine connoisseur.
Whether you want to take your sense of adventure a little further, or you are a seasoned skier, a trip to the Alps will be an exhilarating experience that will enable you to enjoy the wonderful views, as well as travelling down the slopes as fast as your skis or snowboard will take you.
Following a satisfying day on the slopes, you can return to luxury cottages with hot tubs where you can really let your muscles unwind after the exertions of the day.
The historic region of the Loire Valley is a must for those who are keen to sample some of the finest wines in France. Seeing the actual vineyards in the region where the wine is produced will help you to appreciate it even more when you savour a glass or two.
Whether you are motivated by food or architecture, culture or history, France will satisfy you in the same way that our luxury cottages to rent will satisfy your need for relaxing accommodation.
