France may be just across the English Channel, but it can feel like you’re a million miles away as soon as you step off the plane, or disembark from the ferry or train. There’s something inherently magical about a trip to this land of art and culture, gastronomy, and romance, and a cottage with pool is perhaps the best way to make the most of such an adventure. From its glamorous coastlines and golden sands to its mountains, rolling countryside, vibrant cities and quaint hillside villages, there’s something for everyone in France; and we intend to help you discover your passion.
We have numerous cottages with pools to be found across this beautiful country, including those located in the provinces of Alsace, Champagne and Lorraine. Nestled in the glorious north east of the country, these locations are famed for their undulating countryside, burgeoning vineyards and orchards, and delicious food - not to mention historic churches and chapels, and castle ruins that you will long to navigate.
A holiday in the north-east of France is one tailor-made for those who enjoy the finer things in life, as well as anyone who’s keen to learn more about where their favourite food and drink come from. Fans of the great outdoors will also feel at home in the north east; activities include walking and guided gastronomy tours, canoeing along the many rivers, and horse riding, as well as fishing and wildlife watching.
In stark contrast to these lush green hills, the Mediterranean island of Corsica is blessed with mile after mile of golden sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and sun-bleached towns; this is the ideal destination for beach bunnies and families, and anyone who is keen to sample the finest seafood in France. Corsica has a rich and varied history, and you’ll enjoy navigating its natural formations and man-made architecture. Water sports, wildlife, canyon trekking and relaxing beside the sea are surely the order of the day.
France is a country that can be enjoyed all year round, with rural, coastal and mountain landscapes to be explored regardless of the weather. Once you have completed the day’s activities, imagine the luxury of returning to one of the many cottages with swimming pools around the country; located indoors or outdoors, heated or freshwater, shared or private, there’s just something about pool access that can’t be beaten - an indulgence that not all self-catering accommodation is able to provide.
