When booking with NOVASOL, it is easy to find holiday lettings to match your needs and expectations. For example, we have villas with pools and country cottages with large gardens, all with a family focus to ensure that children can have just as much fun as the adults.

Villas in France

Unique experiences with French gites

Our holiday homes in France aim to offer fantastic views over picturesque countryside and dynamic cityscapes from the terrace or balcony. Burgundy has immense natural beauty and impressive architecture to enjoy on self-catering holidays. Dijon, the largest city in the region, has Gothic and early Renaissance architecture that can be appreciated as you walk through the town, as well as various activities for children and outdoor enthusiasts such as rock climbing, golf, hiking and pony trekking. This makes the city a playground for adventure lovers who also enjoy long walks through the vineyards which blanket the countryside. By renting French country cottages with NOVASOL, the great outdoors is right at your fingertips!

Delicious food and wine

Self-catering in France means one thing for certain: scrumptious cuisine complemented by impeccable wine. Luckily for those renting holiday homes in Burgundy, this region is home to some of the nation’s most delicious dishes, as well as arguably the finest wine in the world. While self-catering, make sure to try the region’s most famous dish – boeuf bourguignon – which is made by stewing braised beef in red wine, garlic and herbs. The perfect complement to the region’s food is the wine, which is distinguishable from wine grown in other regions such as Aquitaine by use of a gradually sloping bottle. Why not buy a bottle or two of dry red Pino Noir from a nearby vineyard and enjoy them on the terrace of your French villa?

Vineyard exploration from French villas

One of the best things to do on self-catering holidays in France is visit the country’s historic vineyards. Burgundy has some of the best viticulture anywhere in the world, where vast stretches of land are dedicated to the cultivation of Pinot Noirs, Chablis, and Beaujolais. This area is also crisscrossed by a network of numerous navigable canals and is studded with grand chateaux. It is also home to the imposing Palace of the Dukes, where the unique Musee des Beaux-Arts were established. With so much to see, and much of it outdoors, it is no wonder that Burgundy is so popular for family holidays.
