French Connections

Find Holiday accommodation in France

France is not only for holidays! A number of our owners offer long winter lets at their properties with rental by the month at very favourable rates.

Long winter lets can run from one month right up to six months. Most property owners offer lets from November up to late February or March, depending partly on the region and local weather.

Maybe you fancy escaping the British winter and are drawn to southern regions of France where temperatures are generally higher and there is more light and sunshine. Or perhaps you want to get away for a sabbatical and do that writing, photography or meditation you’ve been promising yourself.

If you’re thinking of buying in France, a winter rental is a great way to be on the spot for viewing properties when they come on the market, get to know the region and way of life and improve your spoken French.

Families thinking of emigrating often want to do the very sensible thing of ‘try before you buy’. Many even put their children into French schools for a while and really get a true taste of the lifestyle.

Our ‘Long Winter Lets’ pages list a range of attractive properties whose owners offer this service. Most invite you to get in touch to discuss rates, so use their weekly rental quoted as simply a guide to where they sit in the market.
