Choose one of our gites in France to rent for a wonderful French holiday. France, a land that ranges from the sun-kissed sandy beaches of the Cote d’Azur to the snow-capped wonders of the Alps and the Pyrenees. Here ancient chateaux sit alongside vibrant modern cities, and visitors can find anything from a relaxing rural retreat to a city break in a stylish apartment in Paris. With a proud history and world-famous culinary delights, France’s miles of coastline offer perfect beach holidays, whilst inland lie quiet villages, with comfortable farmhouses, quaint French cottages and local markets, winding rivers and secluded woodlands. France values its culture, boasting renowned museums and galleries, as well as countless festivals. From remote Brittany to cosmopolitan Nice and Lyon, its people are as diverse as its landscape.



France has holidays to suit every visitor. Those seeking adventure can find it in a country with unbeatable skiing, surfing, cycling and hiking. Families can choose from a wealth of self catering accommodation and will feel at home in a country which loves children, and boasts a huge number of theme parks. The untouched forests of the Dordogne, the lavender fields of Provence and the warm mediterranean sun of the Languedoc-Roussillion region (France's best kept secret), there are ample hideaways for those who want to relax and soak up the natural beauty of this beautiful country.
