The benefits of self catering in France

A big advantage of self catering holidays in France is freedom. Sleep until noon or get up early to buy locally grown produce at the market or warm croissants from the baker. Relax around your own private pool and barbecue sampling French food and wine, go to the beach, explore the area or take part in exciting Activity holidays, from mountain biking in the Pyrenees to canoeing in the Dordogne. Self catering holidays in France are informal, friendly and relaxed.

Unrivalled choice of French self catering holiday rentals

We have self catering properties right across France, from Brittany and Normandy in the North to Provence and the French Riviera in the South. As well as welcoming you during the peak months, many of our property owners offer long winter lets which give you the opportunity to sample living in France for a few months. For winter and early spring, our comprehensive range of self catering ski properties gives you a wide choice of holiday homes in France both in the ski and snowboard resorts and within a short driving distance of the slopes.
