Now is the perfect time to plan an Autumn holiday or short break in France. Enjoy the relaxing peace and quiet of late season destinations and bask in the pleasantly warm sunshine flooding the hills, pastures, lakes and beaches of many parts of the country.
Another major bonus of spending time in France right now is that you can find beautiful accommodation at great value prices as owners adjust their rates for low season – and some make fabulous special offers for autumn weeks.
A holiday let offers plenty of space for your money and the opportunity to settle into a home from home with excellent amenities. This means you can return from a day’s activities to your own private retreat and choose whether to dine out or have a relaxing meal on your own terrace, taking in the view or the sky full of stars.
The gentler weather of autumn makes it a great time for an activity or sporty break and for days out sightseeing in towns and cities. Paris in the sunshine is hard to resist – and why not discover another of France’s beautiful cities?
Annecy in the Haute-Savoie, has clear air, lakeside strolls and mountain views, while Carcassonne’s romantic turrets and winding medeival lanes take you on a trip back in time. Hop on a train to visit sunny Avignon, the city of the popes, Bordeaux for the wine harvest or Tours for the Loire chateaux. For history there is Chartres, while for glamour and beaches, Nice is hard to beat.
