French Connections

Find Holiday accommodation in France

The August issue of Sainsbury's Magazine, on sale now, features an article about 'the perfect villa holiday' at a French Connections Maison de Maitre in the countryside not far from Bordeaux.

The travel theme for this edition of the magazine is Undiscovered France. As it points out, 11 million British people visit France every year - and there are always new experiences to be had. In her article, Poolside Bliss in Bordeaux, writer Nic McCarthy reports on a holiday with extended family at Les Moulieres, a honey-coloured Maison de Maitre with a huge lawn and swimming pool.

Highlights of the trip were messing about in the pool, shopping at the local market, visiting vineyards at St Emilion, kayaking on the river and cooking in a kitchen with doors open on to the terrace and distant fields. All in all, an evocative report on the delights of a family holiday at a French Connections villa in the French countryside.

The magazine is on sale now at Sainsbury's supermarkets.
