Avoid flying and reduce your carbon footprint by booking a holiday home that’s close to good transport links on the continent – including train stations, ports and motorways.
Take a ferry from Portsmouth or Plymouth across the Bay of Biscay, arriving at Santander in Spain and drive down through Spain to your self-catering villa with a pool or a farmhouse in the lush landscape of Galicia.
From Brittany to the Midi-Pyrenees with plenty in between, France has something to offer everyone. Northern France is easily accessible by Eurostar and the TGV. And Normandy cottages make an ideal base for visiting the country’s historic battlefields, or admiring the pottery of Limoges.
Alternatively, Eurostar can take you to Paris in just over two hours from London. On arrival, recharge in a Paris apartment for a city break. Or travel in style onwards on the TGV to a villa on the French Riviera or a holiday home in the Languedoc – the South of France’s best kept secret.
