Holiday cottages in France

France is a wonderful holiday destination, whichever time of the year you visit. French culture is synonymous with the joys of life from delicious food to tantalising romance. When browsing our range our villas in France, consider what is most important to your family. After unspoilt countryside and modern history? Check out or Normandy cottages. Or, interested in hot golden beaches and Roman ruins? Have a look at our Provence apartments. The weather gets warmer the further south in France you go, so whether your family likes it scorching hot or more temperate on holiday, there are plenty of options in France.

Holiday villages

Staying in holiday villages provides a unique community atmosphere while self-catering. France is a vast country full of rolling countryside and isolated villas, and NOVASOL has plenty of these available. However, if you want a more lively atmosphere with lots of other families to meet and make friends with, holiday parks might be more up your street. This is particularly true for families with young children who are always looking for friends to join in activities with. Many of our holiday lettings in specialist villages have access to shared pools and playground areas which are ideal for lazy days in the sun.

Active holidays in France

France is undoubtedly one of the best active destinations in Europe. Renting holiday homes in France, families have access to fun activities such as mountain biking, kayaking and horse riding in the countryside, and water sports by the sea. When staying in French villas in the Loire, kayaking down the river during the summer is an experience families will never forget, with children loving the freedom to race each other and explore. By staying in holiday rentals, parents don’t have to worry about muddy shoes and wet clothes – a washing machine will sort all that out!

Holiday rentals in Cerbère

Located right on the Mediterranean border with Spain, the seaside resort of Cerbère is home to some beautiful French villas, right by the sea. NOVASOL has Languedoc villas in a couple of holiday parks, which enjoy the gorgeous weather that graces the southern French coast. While self-catering here, explore the surrounding area and visit sites such as Fort Saint-Elme in Port Vendres to the north, and hop over to Spain for the day for some spicy Spanish food. Many warm afternoons will be spent relaxing by the beach and splashing around in the shared swimming pool which is within walking distance from rentals in the holiday villages.

Saint Endreol holiday park

This fantastic holiday village is located to the west of Cannes, in a beautiful countryside location. Guests staying in holiday lettings in the village can enjoy golfing on the 18-hole course next door, although a handicap of 30 is required. If you are looking for relaxation while self-catering in France, the park has a spa and treatments area, as well as tennis courts and swimming pools for those looking to burn off last night’s feast. On the hottest days, head to Aqualand waterpark in nearby Sainte-Maxime for refreshing family fun.

Holiday villages in Ondres

Ondres is a commune right in the south-west of France, below Bordeaux in the region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine. Here, visitors will find a mixture of Spanish and French culture, as the border with Spain is only a short trip away in the car. With NOVASOL, holidaymakers have the chance to rent holiday homes in France alongside other families in the middle of a pine forest. Just next door is the fantastic Aquatic Landes waterpark which is the perfect day out from holiday rentals.

Wining and dining while self-catering in France

Of course, one of the main reasons to visit France is for the fantastic food and wine which is famous throughout the world. It really is hard to beat French wine, especially when sat in a local French restaurant drinking a bottle from a nearby vineyard. Self-catering in France helps to give families plenty of choice on how they want to eat on holiday. Some like to venture down to patisseries and restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while others like a mix of home cooked food and eating out. A fun activity that everyone can enjoy on family holidays is a night of French cooking back at the villa. France has so much delicious fresh produce available that the fun starts in the markets, picking out some ingredients. After whipping up a local dish, tuck into your creation on the terrace of your villa and watch the sun go down.
