Villa holiday France

Villa holidays are not just about villas...

There was a time when a villa holiday in France meant exactly that; self-catering accommodation in a modern villa.

Now, the term 'Villa Holiday' encompasses a vast and diverse range of styles of fabulous holiday properties throughout all regions of France...

Summer holidays in France.

Everyone thinks Villa Holidays. There was a time when it meant exactly that; self-catering accommodation in a modern style house. Now, the term 'Villa Holidays' encompasses a vast and diverse range of styles of fabulous holiday properties throughout all regions of France.

So what do you fancy? A medieval château, a grand manor house, a contemporary country home, a restored farmhouse... or indeed a Mediterranean villa?

Pure France

Pure France offers you simply the best choice for your well-deserved and long-anticipated summer holiday. A time to relax and live the French lifestyle for a week or two with your family and friends.

Loire Valley, Brittany and Burgundy

The Loire Valley, Brittany and Burgundy offer stunning scenery with rugged Atlantic coastline and rolling countryside; we have a range of mainly traditional country homes, ideally located to explore these popular regions.


The Dordogne remains always in high demand; Rightly so! Picturesque, small, traditional villages and temperate climate make this region a family favourite. Properties range from barn restorations, imposing manor houses, towering, original châteaux and cute country homes. The south-west is still an undiscovered secret for many. Less busy than its popular neighbours, the region has wonderful Atlantic beaches and deep countryside that is often referred to as 'real France'. Here you'll find mainly traditional-style country homes in acres of private grounds and some of the best views.


Languedoc-Roussillon was renamed 'Occitanie' in 2016 and has perhaps the broadest range of property styles. From the foothills of the Pyrenees, along the extensive, child-friendly beaches, through the largest wine-producing region in the world, to the historical Roman sites in the west. Choose from seaside villas to beautiful country homes, châteaux and unique village properties, all with private swimming pools.


Provence. What's your preference - countryside or Côte d'Azur? The picturesque villages and lavender fields are long-time favourites. We have properties for all tastes - high quality country homes for small or large groups, traditional bastides and wine domaines. And finally, your very own 'Villa Holiday' on the Côte d'Azur. A superb range of traditional and contemporary detached villas, many with sea-views, many within easy walking distance of a delightful village with inviting bakery and dinner terrace.

Must be time for a glass of chilled rosé. Happy (villa) holiday!
