France vacation rentals: A gateway to culture and natural beauty
France is one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations, and for good reason. This country boasts everything you could want from a vacation, including rich history, world-class cities, beautiful vineyards, beaches and mountains. With France vacation rentals, you’ll be able to explore the great sights of this European giant at your leisure, while also soaking up the joie de vivre that defines the laid-back yet sophisticated French lifestyle.
How to get to France
France is a large country, thus how you get there will depend on which part of the country you wish to visit. Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris is the largest in France and will likely be your arrival point, especially if you’re traveling from outside Europe. Nice, Lyon and Marseille are other major airports in France. You can get around the country via train, but it’s recommended that you book a rental car because this will give you access to some of the more out-of-the-way attractions.
French weather: Different climates
The weather could be splendid or it may be raining during your trip to France, it all depends on where you book France vacation homes. If you’re in the south then you can expect hot summers and mild winters; in the north, you’ll get warm summers and chilly winters; near the Alps you’ll be at the mercy of the mountains, which usually means snowy winters and warm summers. If you’re heading to the north, you’d be advised to take an umbrella with you. But don’t despair – a rainy stroll down the Paris Left Bank is just about one of the most idyllic scenes the country has to offer.
France and its sights
It’s impossible to do justice to the magnificence of France in just a few statements. This is a country with many superb attractions and a broad range of different landscapes. The best advice is to make a base at one of our France rental homes, then explore as much as possible from there.
Paris is the number one French destination. The Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and Left Bank are all magnificent, must-visit sights, but the real joy is simply in strolling the streets and soaking up the atmosphere. Grab a coffee at one of the curbside cafés, relax and watch the world go by.
The French Riviera is another stunning part of the country. This area, once a seasonal retreat for the rich and famous, has retained all of its character and charm. Côte d'Azur is a laid-back oasis with world-class amenities and exciting cities. Spend some time in Saint-Tropez or the beaches of Antibes, or get ritzy in Monaco.
Take a brief drive away from the major vacation hotspots and you’ll be in what locals might term “the real France”. The countryside is beautiful in itself, and the scattered villages and towns are charming. There are hundreds of these located across the country, so load up the car with supplies and take a tour.
The best annual events in France
France hosts some of the leading annual events in a number of fields. For starters, there’s the internationally famous Cannes Film Festival, the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Tour de France, all of which have buzzing atmospheres.
There is also Bastille Day, the national day of celebration, which takes place on 14th July and is marked by fireworks and a carnival atmosphere. Also worth visiting is the Fete de la Musique, an annual event celebrating the very best of, well, music.
Of course, France is a highly cultural country, and there are myriad events taking place throughout the year. Whatever time you book France vacation rentals, there’ll surely be events taking place nearby.
Self-catering in your France vacation rental
France vacation homes allow you to sink into the authentic French way of life. Whether it’s sourced from a local supermarket or a farmers' market, the quality of food across the country is simply staggering. If you’re in the south of the country, buy some cheese, red wine and high-quality ingredients to enjoy a picnic in the sunshine around one of our France vacation rentals. In Paris, you’ll be visiting your local bakery for croissants and pain (bread) for a typically French start to the day.
