Coast of Brittany

Enjoy a holiday in the rural idyll of Brittany, where the wild coastline shelters beautiful coves and sandy beaches. Explore the region’s heritage through stunning rustic chaumière cottages, fortified towns and fantastic food and drink. Or perhaps you’d prefer a villa on the Cote d’Azur. Enjoy warm sands and the bright blue waters of the Mediterranean with private pools and coastal views for gazing at long orange sunsets. Villas on Corsica also allow exclusive access to your own private paradise in the Med, where mountain forests run down to glittering bays and sleepy villages are dotted throughout. For the rural French idyll look no further than a cottage or gite in Provence. Whether you walk through vibrant fields of Lavender, lush olive groves or explore marinas and sandy bays, there’s a host of beautiful sights and a wonderfully relaxing region top explore on your French holiday.

Nowhere encompasses fairy-tale France better than Dordogne and Lot, where châteaux rise majestically over lush valleys and patchwork fields and medieval towns dot the beautiful landscape.

Easily accessible for visitors from the UK, the Alabaster Coast of Normandy offers a familiar welcome – along with towering castles, long beaches and historic towns and cities. Holiday cottages and gites in Normandy grant exclusive access to this glorious corner of France. Explore rich heritage from Medieval times to World War II, enjoy great food and drink and inviting climate on your break.
