    Fancy escaping the British winter, taking a sabbatical or going house hunting in France? A long winter letat one of our beautiful holiday homes could be just what you need to see you into next Spring.

    Long winter lets can run from one month right up to six months, usually between November and late February or March, depending partly on the region and local weather. Several of our owners offer long winter lets at their properties with rental by the month at very favourable rates compared with weekly summer rents.

    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 get a true taste of the lifestyle.

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

    Our ‘Long Winter Lets’ pages list a range of attractive properties whose owners offer this service. Our photo shows La Bastide St Christopheon the beautiful Cote d'Azur, where several apartments are available for long winter lets.

    Most owners 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. They are also knowledgeable about their area and happy to help you get what you want from your long winter escape. Browse our long winter lets now.

  • Enjoy a magical Christmas in France

    Fancy doing something different this Christmas? Make the festive season a really feel-good time with a trip to France. Pop across before the event to savour the delights of Christmas markets and pick up some wine bargains; spend the holiday in traditional style in the countryside or a  French town; take family and friends for a fun New Year celebration.

  • Golden Var - a glorious year-round destination in the South of France

    Everything beautiful can be found in the Var, our Mediterranean region of the month – landscape, beaches, resorts, climate, even the people. As part of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, the department enjoys the reputation of being one of the most exclusive areas of France.

    The first superlative is the Corniche des Maures, known as the most beautiful coastal drive in France with views of sweeping sands, rocks and pines over an azure sea, rich forests and luxury homes of the rich and famous. In the peak months of summer, this road is heaving, but in autumn or spring sunshine you can enjoy a less crowded jaunt.

    Another evocative outing involves hopping on a ferry to the Îles d'Hyères, a group of Mediterranean islands that give you a glimpse of what the Riviera was like before the crowds hit around 50 years ago. Porquerolles, now a nature reserve, is the best of the islands and can be enjoyed on foot or with a leisurely cycle ride.

    Inland, the Gorges du Verdon form a spectacular canyon, with claims to being the most beautiful in Europe and a rival to America’s Grand Canyon.  This thousand year old rock forms cliffs on a fabulous scale and harbours the lakes of Sainte Croix and Esparron. Wonderful scenery to hike and the more ambitious can indulge in some climbing or windsurfing.

    Var’s main city of Toulon has a wealth of markets, museums, monuments and cultural events and its bay is spectacular.  The old town of Draguignan is a labyrinth of narrow streets,  squares and fountains, with intriguing houses and hidden alleys. On boulevard John Kennedy is the American cemetery, last resting place of 861 soldiers who died in the 1944 landings.

    The Var may be exclusive, but we have holiday properties that offer both kerb appeal and excellent value - perfect for all tastes and budget. Charming B&B starts at just £56 per room per night, you can book an apartment from just £175 a week or a lovely villa in countryside, woods or close to the sea. Mon Cabanon villa lies between Cannes and St Tropez and is just a few minutes’ walk from the rocky calanque or cove in our photo above.

    Enquire with owners about flexible booking dates, a long weekend or a long winter let of a month or more, with prices considerably reduced. Browse our Var properties and check out our guide to the region.
