French weather: Prepare for 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.
French Sights and Attractions: Eiffel Tower & So Much More
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 of 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.
Top 3 Ski Resorts in France
The French Alps have been popular with skiers for generations, thanks to their reliable snowfall, stunning scenery, and comfortable accommodations, including of course, the traditional chalet.
1. Val d’Isère
Situated close to the Italian border, offers everything that winter sports enthusiasts need in one resort.
Part of the wider Espace Killy ski area, Val d’Isère boasts slopes for skiers of all abilities, including the infamous Face de Bellevarde, the 1992 Olympic course. Adventurous skiers can even head off-piste, while beginners are well catered for on the nursery slopes.
Enjoy the lively après-ski scene in Val d’Isère with dinner at one of the resort's top restaurants, including the Michelin-starred L'Atelier Edmond, which services a fine-dining take on traditional Alpine dishes.
2. Courchevel Ski Resort
The ski resort is built around five picturesque Alpine villages, and makes up part of Les Trois Vallées, the largest linked ski area in the world, with over 600km of ski slopes and 183 ski lifts. The area also employs over 3,000 ski instructors every winter, for any neophytes in your group!
Courchevel is home to plenty of luxurious chalet rental options, many of which have their own hot tub or even a sauna to get you fit and ready for another day's skiing.
3. Val Thorens
Neighbouring Val Thorens is at the highest point in the Trois Vallées ski area, which makes it an ideal option for visitors for whom skiing in France is paramount. Nonetheless, the après-ski is also a big draw, aimed at a younger crowd thanks to lively bars and the biggest nightclub in the Alps, Malaysia. And if you're looking for something a bit different, try your hand at ice driving, at a specially constructed track built and designed by Formula One star Alain Prost.
