The Spring 2013 issue of the quarterly Business & Lifestyle magazine features a two-page lifestyle article on France as a holiday destination, with French Connections as the sole recommended resource for accommodation and travel throughout France.
The magazine has a worldwide readership of over 50,000 and is available in hotels, conference venues and airport lounges as well as by subscription. Its contributors are among the world’s most successful economists, entrepreneurs and directors of multinationals who share their views and experiences with the global business market. As well as their input, the magazine contains the latest news and analyses of banking, finance, business development and technology.
Travel features prominently in the Lifestyle section and the article 'France-c'est fantastique'opens by pointing out that: 'The great appeal of France as a holiday country lies not only in the quality of its culture and history, its food and wine, but also in the sheer variety of landscapes and experiences.'
It then gives the lowdown on all the most interesting regions to visit in France and highlights the reasons for the popularity of holiday rental properties:
'The favourite choice of Francophiles in the know is to rent their own holiday property. Modern villas and gîtes are just as likely to have designer-look interiors, to provide a maid and meal service and to boast state of the art facilities. The properties themselves range from bijou town apartments for a romantic weekend through charming country cottages to huge family farmhouses with swimming pool and grounds – not forgetting the occasional chateau, manoir or converted water mill.'
