Map showing France
France is the second biggest country in Europe and there is certainly plenty to discover and explore.
The most popular and recognised tourist destination is on the south coast; the 'Côte d'Azur', where the rental rates are at a premium, with private holiday rental properties reaching (and exceeding !) 20 000 or 30 000 Euros per week. The Dordogne, west France and Loire-Valley offer a very different landscape, where green rolling hills stretch to the horizon and the pace of life is very much calmer. The landscape is dotted by stone-built traditional country properties, and is home to many world famous historical châteaux hidden away within acres and acres of private grounds.
French properties come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from family-friendly villas located just minutes from Mediterranean beaches in the South of France to traditional stone country homes through to grand, opulent châteaux hidden from view in the deep Dordogne and Loire-Valley countryside.
For the larger holiday groups researching their perfect property and location for family celebrations or wedding gatherings, France presents a vast choice of properties ranging from villas in the Languedoc-Roussillon, villas in Provence and Côte d'Azur, country homes in south west Dordogne, farmhouses in south west Dordogne, bastides and châteaux in Loire Valley and West France each with their own personal style. French accommodation offers the perfect place to get together with family and friends, offering ensuite bathrooms, spacious living areas, fully equipped summer kitchens just feet away from impressive and welcoming heated swimming pools.
