Holiday rental in France for short stays and weekend breaks

Short stays and weekend breaks in France


Short stays and long weekend breaks are becoming much more popular, allowing people to get away for more than just an annual holiday. Many of our holiday villas and rental homes now allow three or four day stays with flexible arrival and departure days. These can easily be tied in with the local budget airlines' weekly schedules.

Here are our vacations rentals and holiday properties which offer short stays with flexible arrival / departure days, mainly out of the main summer period.
