Where to find holiday villas in France

There are many beautiful villas or ‘gites’ available across every region of France that provide a relaxed alternative to a stay in a hotel. Luxury villas or just homely villas for rent in France come in romantic settings to farm locations ideal for families. They can be booked through agencies and individuals. So, why not read the guide below to find out a holiday villa in France?

From beaches to mountainous activities

French villas with pools Some companies specialise in providing gites in the south of France with pools. This region stretches from the Pyrenees and the border with Spain all across to the Alps and the Italian border. The Mediterranean provides endless choices for beach holidays while inland, the hot summer weather becomes ideal with a pool to cool off in. Brittany villas The area of Brittany, while not having the climate of the Mediterranean, is a favourite choice for many families, particularly those driving across from the UK because of its closeness to the ports of the English Channel. French Alps Renting a ski chalet or a villa rental in the French Alps can be ideal at any time of year. The winter provides the close proximity of the mountains and endless opportunities for skiing or snowboarding. In the summer, the same region is ideal for hikers, mountain or road bikers, there is also the option to cool off with some whitewater rafting.

Central and southern France

Limousin or Dordogne There are many luxury rentals available all across this region of central France. Many villas come in the form of converted farmhouses or barns, giving a rustic feel to these countryside locations. Nearby are opportunities to swim in the many rivers that run through the region or to relax with some sightseeing at the various tourist attractions within this part of France. Burgundy and the Loire Valley This region of central France is famous for its wine and the abundance of the châteaux that are located all across the area. Bordeaux is famed for its wine industry connections and is well worth a visit. Futuroscope, a theme park near Poitiers, is a popular destination for lots of tourists to the region. Provence and the Cote d’Azur The French Riviera, close to the bustling city of Marseille, has countless numbers of traditional homes and villas to rent both along the coast and inland. Marseille is the oldest city in France, and is surrounded by 20 beaches to attract tourists.
