A rural holiday in Normandy through French Connections is the major focus of the Sunday Times Travel section cover story today. In a three-page article headed 'Summer's best deals from £100 a person', journalist Stephen Bleach highlights the fantastic value of our La Houssaye, a Normandy watermill where a week in July or August for a family of four costs just £350. The 18th century converted mill still creates its own electricity and is set in 10 acres of riverside meadows. The article features a photo of La Houssaye, seen from the organic vegetable garden, along with photos of canoeing, riding and French markets, which are all available nearby.
Even better news is that this is by no means the only rural French Connections property that offers such great value during the school summer holidays. We have many comfortable cottages and country gites in Normandy and Brittany at similar prices with summer availability - and even if you add in the ferry fare from Dover to Calais, they still work out at less than £500 for a family of four.
