The exchange rate for British sterling to euros has gone above 1.2 for the first time in eighteen months. This summer, holidaymakers are getting more euros for their pound than in the whole of last season. At French Connections we allow you to find and order the best deal on euros for your holiday to France with the MyTravelMoney currency comparison tool – and at the best of today’s rates £500 will buy 614 euros.
A holiday rental in France already offers great value per person, with lots of space, privacy and freedom to relax in your own surroundings. Now eating out will cost less and you can indulge in just a bit more of that bargain local wine and luscious fresh food from the market. Exchange at the best rates and a 50 euro meal will cost £40.
And it’s not too late to book a fantastic value week in France this summer to take advantage of the exchange rates.
For example, for the last week of July, a couple can stay at the Petit Clement studio gite in the south of France, near Carcasonne, for just £299 for seven nights. It’s in a beautiful collection of converted mill houses that nestles in a private, peaceful wooded valley with its own trout stream and large swimming pool.
Closer to home, in Normandy, a family of up to five can stay for the same week at the two bedroom apartment at La Rosiere for just £340. This traditional Normandy house is set in the quiet village of Beaubec La Rosiere and has countryside views from all sides over the tranquil and peaceful surroundings with cows, horses and donkeys grazing in the fields.
