Book France vacation rentals from top accommodation sites.
It is the custom of catholic popes to kiss the ground on arrival in France, very uncommon tradition indeed and peculiarly unusual especially for the highest representative of Roman Catholic Church, which historically had many issues and steady conflicts with France after 1789 revolution. Yet, this is what happens and nobody dares think that this is not a huge and powerful symbol stating in front of the whole world that French ground is blessed. So many years have passed since the times when young Lafayette used to travel to the United States to prepare the American Revolution and a new fair, human constitution for the other side of the world. Somewhat France is this, a young and brave inspired patriot defying all dangers to improve mankind, and at the same time it is also that young and simple girl singing “A la claire fontaine” by a pleasant water source in the middle of beautiful bucolic Vaucluse. Welcome to the country of tolerance and freedom and welcome also to a rural and true country where hills are sweet and fairy tale landscapes are so peaceful. You will discover that France was blessed twice, one time for its ideas of justice, progress and freedom which changed the world and a second time for that very special beauty which is spread abundantly all over the land. There are many apartments in France available for holiday rentals. You can rent a villa with pool along the sea or in the countryside or cheaper accommodations such as guesthouses and rooms for rent. Do not forget that subrentals are also very interesting and quick to find and if you had no time to prepare your travel to France a last minute accommodation such as a cheap apartment will be very helpful.
We love you, France, you have political borders but your soul has no limits at all, you are barely universal and you have in yourself a piece of every natural landscape of the world. We love your seas and their coasts, so plural and so different that a suitable name for each one had to be chosen and all those names speak loud the language of beauty, Opale, Albâtre, Azur, Vermeille, Fleurie, Jade, Emeraude, Argent, Bleue. Wherever we follow the frontline of your seas we can see nothing but pure colors and shapes, your shores may be sandblaster, rocky, swampy, whatever they may be, they are always sumptuous. In no other place of the world could one possibly find your vertical, white and high cliffs and the pearly and silver beach of Etretat scattered with shells. We are captivated by Deauville atmosphere when we walk across the promenade in front of stunning 19th century Belle Époque palaces in a fiction landscape where sky, sea and sand merge together in an undefined white and grey medley.
We fall in love with Cabourg when we stare at the beach in front of the Grand Hotel. Marcel Proust would again come out and get inspired for his masterpiece “A la recherche du temps perdu” and we adore visiting your stud farms where the most beautiful horses of the world are bred. After a full day riding across the sweet hills of Normandy driving to an ancient fishermen village for a dinner, Honfleur or Trouville, is a great idea. Nothing like enjoying a soupe de poissons followed by a tasty tarte aux pommes (apple pie) with a glass of cyder and a café-calva at the terrace of a restaurant on Honfleur ancient port. At the border of Britanny and Normandy, the high cliff of Mont Saint Michel holds its Gothic cathedral as a crown would hold its most precious jewel. At high tide, it is difficult to understand whether this mystical cliff was indeed born from the earth, the sea or the sky itself and the legend says that Saint Michael fought here against the devil. Saint-Malo is a cradle where sea waters will heal and soothe us and all Brittany coastlines are indeed like a huge door open on the Atlantic Ocean. We are delighted by the splendid shores of Charente Maritime and when the sunset is high on the sea in Royan at the Cordouan, elegant bay we stand in wonder in front of its Art Nouveau villas looking so noble over the sea rocks. It is so pleasant to wake up in Royan and get on a boat in direction of Ile de Ré or Ile d’Oléron, pearls of French Atlantic Ocean for a full day trip in the middle of the sea. Hotel reservations and crowded hostels are useless and make no sense for a travel to France, because France deserves to be loved and lived and not just be visited as a tourist. A house rental in France for a holiday is by far the best solution and the choice of accommodations is so wide, from beach condos along the sea coasts and seaview apartments to vacation homes such as apartments and villas. We enjoy the calm of Arcachon bay and the mighty coastline in Biarritz which by will of Emperor Napoléon III and his Spanish wife Eugenia de Montijo became in less than five years one of the most elegant seaside resorts of the world. If we want luxury, smart and swag life and a VIP environment we just have to drive to the French Riviera and rent a villa with pool in Cannes or in Juan les Pins where sea water is emerald and palm trees kindly shake relentlessly under a soft warm Mediterranean perfumed wind. As a matter of fact Côte d’Azur (French Riviera) is not just a region, it is sheer paradise. Travelling through the enchanting creeks of beautiful Var, we get to Marseille and to the region of Camargue. According to an ancient tradition the three sacred Maries arrived here from Jerusalem bringing with them the secrets of the Divine Feminine and Les Saintes Maries de la Mer would be their mystical sanctuary.
France is all landscapes of the world embodied in one single country, from Arcachon sand dunes to the mighty Alps in Haute Savoie, from natural canyons in the Gorges du Verdon region to Cantal craters and to Marais Poitevin swamps, from Annecy and Evian lakes to the peaks of Pyrenees, France you are absolutely unforgettable wherever we go and whatever we look at. We love sailing across Saint Tropez bay where Brigitte Bardot’s wild and sophisticated at the time beauty still strongly echoes. Well, let us say that God created woman but God created France too. We love your profound rural regions, mysterious Berry, sweet and green Morvan, glorious Burgundy, flat and golden Champagne, enchanting Alsace Lorraine, there is not a single French region that we would miss. It is easy to book vacation rentals in France: a chalet in the Jura mountains, a loft in Lyon, an apartment in Montpellier; there is so many options to visit France and have a own quiet vacation home far from crowded and noisy hotels.
We love your rivers, they flow calmly and sensually across your beautiful land, we cannot even imagine Paris without the Seine and the wonderful castles of Anjou and Touraine without the splendid Loire aside their mighty Renaissance towers. A vacation house in the Loire valley is ideal for visiting Amboise, Chenonceau, Azay les Rideaux, Chambord and all the wonderful Renaissance castles of the region. Renting a vacation apartment in Bordeaux is an ideal solution for discovering Bordeaux wines region sailing along the beautiful Garonne and the Neolithic grottoes in Perigord and Aquitaine. We are stunned by the Rhone in Lyon and Avignon flowing in direction of Camargue and Aigues Mortes to die in the Mediterranean under a rose-coloured sky crowded with flamingos and it is just breathtaking to watch its waters flow into the sea at the end of the day. Welcome to France, homeland of Freedom and homeland of Beauty.
