Gites & Cottages

If you're looking for a genuine home from home whilst on holiday, a gite, cottage or villa is the perfect solution. Self-contained and fully equipped, it's just like having your own place where you can enjoy the space and freedom to come and go as you please.

What's more, you can be confident of quality as every one has been inspected by one of our expert team to ensure high standards. So all you need to worry about is enjoying yourself.

A fabulous choice

You can choose settings from idyllic countryside to busy little towns or villages. Or, if you prefer, near the sea - surrounded by mountains - even within the grounds of a vineyard. In fact just about anywhere you'd like to hang your hat can be your home for a week or two. With well over a thousand properties available, the choice we offer almost covers the entire length and breadth of France. Sizes vary from little hideaways just made for couples to rambling houses capable of sleeping ten or more.

An ideal base

Some of our cottages belong to UK residents, something often reflected in the décor and furnishings - with a kettle and teapot being commonplace. But if it's a more French experience you're looking for we also have a great selection of traditional gites or luxurious villas.

Our properties make an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area, and to enjoy pastimes such as golf, fishing, cycling or horse riding. The majority of properties provide barbecue and garden furniture, giving you the perfect way to relax and socialise after a day's activities. Exactly what local amenities each property offers is shown in a series of symbols, the key to which can be found at the back of this brochure.

Splash out

Having a private swimming pool right outside your door can add so much fun and pleasure to your holiday. Quite apart from the obvious advantage of being able to take a dip and splash about whenever you fancy, a pool can also become a focal point for al fresco eating, games and parties. What's more, the kids will think you're pretty cool for having provided them with just what they wanted! And don't forget these properties also make a great base for holidays at cooler times even when the pool is not available.
