Rural France, beloved by the Brits, a holiday destination where we enjoy eating out, wine tasting, shopping and absorbing French culture. Book a French gite or house with its own swimming pool for a relaxing holiday French style.
France is a country with so much to offer for cottage holidays. From chateaux to sleepy French villages and outstanding countryside, France has it all. Add to this great wine, vineyards and reputation for fine, good quality cuisine and a cottage stay in France is an attractive option. Renting a gite with a pool, can also be important with giving you that added extra where you can easily have the freedom to jump in the pool for a relaxing swim when you want.
Hints & Tips on the Best Places in France for a stay in a Gite or Villa with a Pool:
The main complaints that people could have regarding pools attached to holiday accommodation is that they are either not clean enough or not warm enough. These questions should be asked prior to booking. Some holiday cottage owners are very proud of the comfortable temperature that they heat their pool to and will happily let you know.
Cleanliness can be an additional problem with outdoor swimming pools because birds will leave droppings when flying overhead and leaves blow into the pool from the garden. It is common to find that the swimming pool is cleaned regularly to ensure satisfaction.
Self catering accommodation in France with a pool of its own
France has so many great areas that it is impossible to recommend just one or a few areas as being the best for gite holidays. The best place will undoubtedly depend on what you and your family or group are looking for.
For seaside holidays, Brittany has been a favourite of a number of Brits for many years, partly undoubtedly because of the area’s relative proximity to England and for the charming coastline. For wine lovers, a self-catering holiday in the Loire Valley has to be one of the best places. With unspoilt vineyards where you can enjoy tasting the wine to magnificent Chateaux, there is much to recommend the Loire Valley. As with any country, each district of France has its own attractions and character. Although certain areas have become popular with the Brits for gite holidays you may well find that a holiday in a less well known area could be the best place on account of discovering the new, less busy places. The South Coast of France, particularly the Cote D’Azure and the French Riviera are simply stunning but tend to be pricier than other parts of France.
Wherever you choose to go in France, renting a gite with a pool can be simply excellent for relaxing and taking it easy as and when you wish.
