Why choose a gite or cottage holiday in France?
- Self-contained and fully equipped
- Perfect holiday accommodation for couples, families and groups
- Many are pet friendly
- Some have private or shared swimming pool
A great choice
With well over a thousand properties across France to choose from, in idyllic countryside, a busy little town or village, or perhaps beside the sea, surrounded by mountains or even within the grounds of a vineyard, you are sure to find somewhere to hang your hat for a week or two.
Having a private swimming pool right outside your door can add so much fun and pleasure to your holiday. As well as taking a dip whenever you fancy, a pool can also become a focal point for al fresco eating, games and parties.
And don't forget these properties are also great for holidays at cooler times, even when the pool is not available.
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 and modern gites.
All are well situated to explore the surrounding area, and to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, golf, fishing, cycling or horse riding. The majority provide a barbecue and garden furniture, giving you the perfect way to relax and socialise after a day's activities.
Whatever kind of holiday destination you're looking for, you're sure to find somewhere in France or Spain that's perfect for you - and now you can find it easily on our new and improved Trip Planner map!
