Holidays in France just got cheaper for anyone living in Britain as the exchange rate for the Pound Sterling to Euro climbed to a 7-year high today.
Using our currency comparison tool (see link below), today’s best rate offers 1.3224 euros to £1, so £500 buys 661.2 euros. Order a three-course set menu meal for 20 euros at a delightful French bistro and at that rate you would be paying the equivalent of just over £15.
The difference in the amount of spending money you’re likely to need for food and drink, petrol, activities and fun shopping is obvious. Even accommodation is cheaper right now if priced in euros. But one happy fact remains exactly the same – and that is the excellent value of B&Bs and holiday rentals in France, regardless of exchange rates.
We have a great choice of countryside B&Bs with comfortable double rooms from as little as £37 per night – all offering a richer, more authentic experience than budget travel hotels. If you prefer a luxury self-contained one-bedroom gite with kitchen, that can be booked for around £45 per night.
A week’s holiday in one of the two bedroom self-catering cottages on offer from our owners starts at only £165 per week. For a family of four, that’s just £6 each per night! Even a luxury villa with fantastic facilities and a private swimming pool costs a lot less than the equivalent in Spain and other European destinations. Bonnes vacances!
