In anticipation of the UK opening air bridges to Europe – it’s time to save your summer holiday and take a look at our wonderful selection of villas, gites, apartments and chateaux holiday homes in France.
Self-catering is going to be really popular
This year will see interest in self-catering accommodation really bloom as holiday makers seek choices in whether to eat out or stay in.
French markets are open and full of tempting seasonal produce, perfect for your stay at (your French holiday) home barbecue, picnics and alfresco dining in the summer sunshine.
Not much beats a fresh baguette from the boulangerie, a chunk of cheese, fresh salad and fruit or a delicious cake – easy to make, little clearing up and utterly scrumptious.
Self-catering means you have the facilities to cook if you wish – croissants for breakfast anyone? Or order a take away! During the last few months, many restaurants and cafés have worked to provide takeaway options for customers ranging from 3-course gourmet dishes to burgers and pizzas.
Get out and about
Staying in for most of us has resulted in a longing to get out and enjoy the fresh air. If you’ve missed being able to hike, sail, cycle, swim and generally enjoy the great outdoors – France has so much to offer. Glorious beaches, wide open countryside, mountains, vineyards, forests and lakes, the choice of French destinations is immense. And our listing of thousands of holiday homes means you’ll find something that’s just right for you.
What to expect on your holiday in France Summer 2020
We advise you to bring masks with you. Rules are being made/changed constantly but it’s highly likely you’ll need to wear them while travelling to France on public transport – ferries, trains and planes. People working in public areas are likely to be using PPE.
You’ll also find that masks are required wearing to walk about in the vast majority of restaurants, though not when eating of course.
Some shops will also require you to wear masks and some tourist attractions may also require this.
1m social distancing rules are being practiced in shops, restaurants and tourist attractions.
Hand sanitiser is freely available in every bar, café, restaurant, shop, tourist attraction – even ski lifts.
Deep cleaning, cleaning and disinfecting is an ongoing requirement – if you want to know more about the hygiene protocols at the holiday home you’re going to, just email the owners for information.
The new normal means that you can have peace of mind on your summer holiday in France and enjoy that much needed break.
