Romance in holiday lettings in France

France is a charmer, a master of romance. Paris heads things up, its splendid Gothic churches and leafy rives of the Seine overshadowed by the great Eiffel Tower and Montmartre. A flourish of Bordeaux wine and the scents of Provencal lavender draw other folk to the countryside. Impressive bastides, chateaux-lined rivers and France holiday rentals with pools promise rustic relaxation there. Then the Alps rise, offering a medley of world-class pistes bearing names like Three Valleys and Chamonix. Then the mountains hit the shimmering sea of the resplendent Cote d'Azur, with its yachts, its yellow-sand beaches, its carved cliffs and pine-scented isles.

History

Heritage sites near French holiday homes

Though France is known for its spectacular art museums and fine restaurants and wineries, there’s an abundance of history to enjoy. Holiday rentals can be found near fascinating places like the Palace of Versailles, an immense 18th-century palace with gilded rooms, the chandeliered Hall of Mirrors and a fountain show, and Arc de Triomphe, the triumphal arch built to commemorate Napoleon’s victories. The Catacombs of Paris, a tunnel complex that’s home to millions of arranged skeletons, is another historic highlight.

Things to do

Attractions near holiday lettings in France

France is perfect for a fix of culture. Just take Paris, where the world-famous Louvre rises above the riverside, its galleries filled with the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and numerous other treasures. And there are great landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre-Coeur of Montmartre to get through. Stylish Aix-en-Provence has exhibits of French masters like Cezanne, while cutting-edge MAMAC in Nice rarely fails to get you thinking. And there's more. France holiday rentals in regions like the Dordogne can mean exploring the pre-historic cave paintings of Lascaux, while the Loire Valley is a montage of grand chateaux and prestigious wineries.

Activities

What to do near holiday homes in France

Seeking relaxation? France holiday rentals in Provence or Bordeaux or the Loire Valley herald a schedule of wine tasting and wistful evenings wandering lavender fields, book reading by the pool and morning visits to the local boulangerie. Prefer adventure? Great. Hit the French Alps and the soaring ski pistes of Chamonix or Val d'Isere, where carving glaciers and rambunctious La Folie Douce apres-ski are the name of the game. Elsewhere, there's cooking lessons in Parisian bistros and sailing jaunts in wild Brittany, mussel-eating in La Rochelle and beach hopping on the French Riviera.

Weather

Climate during your stay in holiday homes in France

Summer, from June to August, is the most popular time to seek out France holiday rentals. The south gets particularly good weather then, with dry days and temperatures nearing 30 degrees drawing folk to the Cote d'Azur and Dordogne. Autumn means grape harvests in wine regions like Bordeaux and Beaujolais, with pickers coming in months like September and October. Winter means skiing in the Alps – resorts like Chamonix are in full swing by January and don't wind down until May.

Natural features

France – from glaciers to bays

From the carved calanques of the Marseille coast to the wave-battered bays of western Brittany, France packs in countless natural wonders. In the east, the Alps command the horizon. They rise from lush green river valleys, through fields of wildflowers and pasture, past glaciers and all the way to the top of Mont Blanc – the highest peak in Western Europe. Inland, and regions like the Dordogne are plugged with caves and high cliffs, while Provence is all rolling hills of lavender. North means Normandy and Brittany, with their wide beaches and high sand dunes.

Food & drink 

Regional delicacies in France

French cuisine is one of the most distinctive in the world, lending its flavours and practices to neighbouring countries and culinary schools throughout the West. Each region of France has its own culinary style, ranging from the high-end restaurants and gourmet meals in Paris to the rich ham or game dishes in Champagne. Whatever your taste, you can enjoy authentic French food in the restaurants near your holiday accommodation.
