A big mountain chalet looking at the snow peaks, or a small wooden cabin hidden in the woods? Perhaps you’re looking for something intimate like a romantic tent, yurt, or a treehouse. And if you’re travelling with your family, we suggest you take a look at our grand beach villas.

Beautiful landscapes that will melt your heart

France is a big country, offering a lot to its visitors. Thanks to its large size, the climate, wildlife and plant species in France differ per region. You will find the Alps and the Pyrenees in Southern France. The Alpine regions offer mind-blowing landscapes of restless mountains dotted with crystal-clear lakes. Walking around you can stumble upon impressive waterfalls falling from great heights - a view that can take your breath away. There are plenty of forests and vast green meadows for your leisure stroll around nature. It is no surprise that the French Alps lure visitors from all around the world. The Pyrenees, on other hand, are less explored and touristic. The area is wild and filled with untamed scenery. You can explore the Grottes de Bethare, which are caves following an underground path of 2.8 km. Or perhaps visit the second highest waterfall in Europe - La Grande Cascade de Gavarnie. The waterfall is located in the Cique de Gavarnie valley, said to be the most iconic attraction of the Pyrenees National Park.

Another popular destination among tourists in France is the Mediterranean region around Côte d'Azur. Surrounded by sea and mountains, it’s a place that will amaze any visitor. Explore the many islands and sandy beaches, or take long walks around the gorges and the Marcantour lakes, situated in the Marcantour National Park. In the nature area there’s a great chance you will have wildlife encounters. The chamois and the marmot are the animals you will most definitely meet or hear during your stay. With a little more luck you can even spot the ermine, mouflon and even ibex. As for the flora of the region, you’ll be surrounded by greenery almost everywhere you go! You can take a trip to one of the many wine-growing places, where wine has been produced for centuries. Or you can find rest in the middle of an orchard with almond and olive groves. Take your lunch outside, enjoy the quietness, and snooze in the shade of trees unbothered by others. We also offer holiday homes in France, which are big farming houses with their own garden!

Here are some ideas on what to do during your stay in nature

The diverse landscapes of France offer a profusion of outdoor activities you can do alone or in a group. The mountain regions are of course most popular for winter sports.

And for the more experienced adventurers you can practice mountain biking. There is a wide range of terrains for mountain biking in France, and the country is seen as the ultimate destination for this sport. Going downhill will certainly get your adrenaline pumping and wake your senses.

If you decided you want to book a holiday home in France for a more relaxing holiday by the sea, don’t worry. The world-famous French Riviera will not leave you bored! Go diving and discover life underwater, or book a boat and explore one of the many unspoiled islands. Water rafting is another great activity to enjoy with your whole family and friends. What about the evenings? Coastal France is puzzled with charming little towns and ports, where you can meet the locals, taste the French cuisine, and enjoy remarkable sunsets on the beach.

What is the best time to visit France?

There is no right answer here. Think about the activities you’d like to do. Are you going for a skiing holiday in the snow? Then the winter season is the best time for this.
