For most Francophiles, France’s enduring appeal owes as much to its phenomenal food and wine as it does its picturesque villages, fascinating history and unspoilt countryside.
Over the last 25 years Summer France has dedicated itself to helping couples and families alike enjoy hassle-free holidays to the secret corners of France.
From golf getaways to gourmet escapes and beach breaks to Alpine adventures, the French accommodation specialist offers the discerning traveller a prestigious portfolio brimming with picture-perfect holiday destinations.
With so many styles to choose from, Summer France reveals some of its favourite areas for an authentic holiday in France:
Tucked away in the southwestern corner, this coastal region offers some of the most quintessentially French holiday experiences without the crowds – and all just 50 minutes from the Belle Époque charm of glamourous Biarritz. Here the luxurious villas with private pools and golf-side apartments of Moliets – nestled between the unspoiled Landes pine forest, the beautiful Basque countryside and the Atlantic Ocean’s endless sandy beaches – are perfectly placed to entertain active couples and nature lovers alike. Ideal for families, ocean lovers and nature lovers. Prices for 7 nights this summer start from £126 pw based on six sharing a one-bedroom self-catered apartment at Les Appartements et Maisons de Moliets whilst a three bedroom self-catered-villa with pool, starts from £344/pw based on six sharing at Villas La Prade.
With the Tarn Valley boasting an undulating landscape once described as “where Tuscany meets the Cotswolds”, the area brims with charming mediaeval villages and hypnotic scenery. Summer France’ Résidence La Marquisié sits proudly on a hilltop overlooking the delightful village of Trébas les Bains with indulgent views across the valley and a wellness centre – complete with pool – that ensures guests leave utterly refreshed. Prices for 7 nights this summer start from £99/pw based on four sharing a one-bedroom self-catered apartment.
Described as one of the most beautiful bays in the world, the Bay of Somme is home to the coastal resort of Cayeux sur Mer, where the Résidence Les Terrasses de la Plage takes centre stage. With the town’s pretty pebble beaches having received Blue Flag status last year, the seascape is as well-suited to active holidaymakers keen to test out the local kite-surfing school as nature-lovers eager to meet the local seal colonies or simply relax on the surrounding dunes. Prices for 7 nights this summer start from £152 pw based on four sharing a one-bedroom self-catered apartment.
It’s hard not to be seduced by Provence’s rolling hills, quaint villages and legendary lavender fields. And, with the Résidence Provence Country Club a haven of serenity in the heart of the Luberon mountains, holidaymakers needn’t travel far to discover their own corner of paradise. Historic towns such as neighbouring L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue – the country’s antiques capital – are within driving distance, whilst the properties are right on the championship golf course. Prices for 7 nights this summer start from £152 pw based on four sharing a one-bedroom self-catered apartment.
With miles of pristine coastline to explore, the Vendée is punctuated by stylish ports, characterful villages and some of the country’s most idyllic beaches. Best of all, its magnificent climate is on a par with that of the French Riviera, ensuring long, dry summers ripe for taking advantage of the villa’s private pool or enjoying a round on Fontenelles’ 18-hole course. Prices for 7 nights this summer start from £124 pw based on four sharing a one-bedroom self-catered apartment at Les Appartements de Fontenelles.
