Brittany, a long-time favourite with the British holidaymaker, has a mild climate due to the influence of the Gulf Stream. The convenience of taking the ferry or Eurotunnel across the Channel and continuing the journey in your own car is a most pleasurable experience and the less crowded roads and good motorway systems make driving easy. Distances are manageable in a day, so perfect for families with small children heading for holidays in French villas or to that getaway for a short break at any time of the year – especially to our villas with indoor pools. The Brittany coastline has so much - sandy beaches, pretty coves and river inlets offering spectacular scenery and views.
Further to the south the Atlantic coast of France has hundreds of miles of sandy beaches and is a favourite destination for surfers and families looking for holidays in French villas with pools. Inland you will find the Dordogne and Lot areas, just abounding in history with honey coloured stone villages perched high above river valleys which cling precariously to the hillsides as they have done for hundreds of years. Many of our French villas offer you the chance to stay in this part of France, steeped in history, where walkers and cyclists will find exciting forest tracks and the whole family can enjoy canoeing or kayaking on either of the two rivers, the Lot and the Dordogne, that give their name to this region. The vineyards around Bordeaux and St Emilion, and further inland those around Cahors and Duras produce some of the finest wines and of course Cognac is home to many famous brandy distilleries. When staying at one of our French villas you will most likely be tempted by some of the excellent regional specialities such as tasty fruit and vegetables, notably tomatoes and plums grown from the Lot Valley and locally reared poultry and geese which give rise to the production of foie gras.
The South of France brings the visitor on a French villas with pools holiday to a warm climate where the lavender fields, red ochre cliffs and chirping cicadas bring vibrant colours, scents and sounds alive! The coastal stretch, known as the French Riviera, is the playground of the rich and famous, offering the glitz and glamour of Nice, Cannes and St Tropez. A few hour’s people watching here can be a fascinating pastime! Soak up the atmosphere of the jet-set along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, La Croisette in Cannes or Pampelone beach in St Tropez. Away from the Riviera you can choose to relax in any of the mellow stone villages of the hinterland which hide sleepily in the warm sunshine, stirring only to the established rhythms of the day as the church bell announces breakfast-time, long lazy lunches and late afternoons. Living is easy here, the perfect place to chill and get away on a French villas with pools holiday. The area has its own strong flavours, garlic, herbs, tomatoes and onions combine with olives and olive oil to create a typical Provençal sauce. Fresh salad and delicious pizza criss-crossed with anchovies and olives and a baguette or ficelle from the boulangerie make for the perfect easy lunch at the poolside at any one of our French villas.
You will find markets all over France where all these local grown ingredients can be bought directly from growers and producers and there can be nothing more delicious than a meal prepared in the kitchen of your very own villa from our selection of French villas with pools combining these many flavours. A holiday in one of our French villas will allow you time to explore your favourite area and soak up the culture, cuisine, colours and history at your own pace and in your own time.
