Destination France - Holiday Cottages In France

Selecting your very own Holiday Cottages In France is merely one aspect of a fantastic cottage holiday experience. Remember though, it is every bit as essential to make sure you select a suitable holiday destination.

France is a popular destination for holidaymakers with a warm and alluring climate and a abundance of things to see and do. With world renowned cuisine; a rich history; beaches of golden sand; and a delightfully diverse landscape you would surely have a memorable holiday.

France has an amazing variety of places to visit that would not be easy to exhaust in a lifetime of holiday visits. To the south of France there is the warm mediterranean sun of the Languedoc-Roussillion region. In the south-east there are: the sun-kissed sandy beaches of the Cote d’Azur; the lavender fields and limestone hills of Provence; and the half-moon bays of Corsica off the mainland.

In you like mountains, to the east of France there are the snow-capped marvels and glaciated peaks of the Alps and in the south-west, the canyons of the Pyrenees.

To the west there is the fretted coastline of Brittany; whilst inland there are the gentle meadows and châteaux of the Loire valley; and the lushly wooded valleys and untouched forests of the Dordogne with its prehistoric cave paintings and Roman monuments.

In the north there are the Gothic cathedrals and of course, the cutting-edge architecture of Paris. Enjoy some beautiful rolling green countryside with pretty hamlets and miles of lovely sandy beaches. And don’t forget, you can explore the battlefields of Normandy and Picardy.

In France, ancient châteaux coexist alongside lively contemporary towns and cities. Visitors can discover everything between a relaxing countryside retreat to a city break in a stylish apartment in Paris. There are all kinds of options for a holiday in France: you can focus on a city or region; how about river or mountain range theme; or maybe gastronomy or architecture. France has so much open space for outdoor activities such as walking, hiking or cycling, canoeing, surfing or sailing, and skiing of course.
