French Connections
Walking Holidays in France

Most of our French holiday homes are set in areas that afford fantastic walking opportunities. Farmhouses, gîtes, watermills, lakeside, seaside and mountain houses all give you the freedom of your own space and timetable and are available throughout the year. 

Ramble marked trails, take in spectacular scenery; climb hills and explore coastal paths or trek from one village to another. There’s no better way to really engage with the landscape as it slowly changes before you. Because France is easy to get to by car or train, with no weight restrictions on luggage, you can pack that spare pair of hiking boots and waterproof clothing to ensure that you’re fully equipped.

Local knowledge and advice for walkers in France

Many of our friendly property owners provide local maps, itineraries and personal recommendations for suitability of walks tailored to the individual, based on their thorough local knowledge. They will also suggest places to stop and eat or to buy a crusty loaf and pâté for a picnic so you don’t risk being stranded at lunch time. Also talk to our property owners about walking groups.
