Anyone who has held off booking a summer trip to France until now can still grab some great bargains for self-catering holiday accommodation. A browse of our special offers reveals that owners are offering anything from 10 to 50% discounts on their last remaining summer weeks.
Why are these properties making such offers? Well, they may have availability due to last minute cancellations or bookings for stays of a fortnight may have left single weeks unfilled. Many are popular holiday properties, including desirable stone cottages with oodles of period charm, beautiful converted farmhouses with country views and attractive gîtes with heated swimming pool or close to good beaches.
One example is Euphony Gite at the Normandy farmhouse complex of La Tringale (pictured above). This comfortable two-bedroom gite can sleep up to seven people and its friendly owner is offering a massive 50% discount on the normal price of 630 euros per week for remaining weeks in August and early September, so there’s still time to go during the school holidays.
Even a short break over the bank holiday weekend of 25th to 27th August can prove a bargain, as discounts are also on offer on elegant B&Bs in easily accessible areas of France. It’s easy to make the most of your time by taking advantage of the owners’ local knowledge on the best places to visit and eat out – and many also offer a convivial evening meal so that you can sample food and wine of the area in relaxed surroundings. I reckon that’s a pretty important part of any trip to France!
