    Self guided walking vacation in France
    From
    €1,057
    excluding flights
    Truly great value and the fact that most of the guests had been before and one set I think 12 times makes its own point. (more)David Edmonds
    The beautiful countryside, great food, wine and company. Our hosts Carolyn and Peter were great fun, interesting conversationalists and they run a lovely home. I walked my legs off and swam in the pool every day. (more)Mairead Ryan
    The most memorable part was the hospitality of the hosts. (more)Elaine Overnell

    The people were fabulous both the hosts and guests. Competent, kind, thoughtful hosts. Great food and lovely setting great cycling and walking. (more)Nicki Mazey
    Excellent. Accommodation was first class. Hosts were excellent. Environment refreshing and relaxing. The vacation lived up to the blurb on the website! (more)Brian Flynn

    Loire Valley self catering farm cottage, France
    From
    €560
    per cottage per week (sleeps 2-4)
    Five stars for getting the right amount of things done & rest. The countryside is beautiful, the gite and courtyard were lovely, the hosts wonderful and the chateaux have to be seen at least once in a lifetime. (more)Ilinca Anghelescu
    It was the perfect family vacation with a 15 month old. With 3 separate cottages all surrounding one courtyard, it provides the perfect place for a shared family vacation, but still giving you your own space to retreat to! (more)Becky Reid
    Despite some inclement weather on a few days, it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. We didn't want to leave. We would love to get back in the near future. (more)Valerie Guihen
    Accommodation in the Mercantour, France
    From
    £420
    per accommodation per week
    We loved the stunning location and tranquillity of the area. Although the roads were a bit "white knuckle" at times the rewards of the views dotted with towns hanging from the cliff sides were amazing. A real treat for any photographer. Providing access to Nice, just over an hour away or heading further into the mountains the location provides the option of dipping into nature or culture. (more)Karen Mckiernan
    It is the best vacation we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years vacationing in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell
    The Alpes-Maritimes and Mercantour National Park is a fantastic area to visit and we would consider this to be one of our best vacations. (more)Lourdes Roffey
    Mercantour Park self catering gite, France
    From
    £420
    per week (sleeps 2)
    Best bits: Walking up to and visiting the rock art in the Vallee des Merveilles, and the Fete du Pain in St Martin Vésubie. (more)Carolyne Mason
    Excellent. We travelled with young family and would certainly stay again so cannot recommend it too highly. (more)ROSIE KELBRICK
    A really worthwhile and memorable vacation: the self guided walks were well planned and gave us a great idea of the locality; the food was very good and the garden(s) excellent for relaxing on our days off. We were given a very warm welcome and a friendly stay. (more)Jon Nay

    baby friendly family accommodation in France
    From
    €550
    per cottage per week (sleeps 2-6)
    The gite was lovely - for our 18 month old daughter the highlight was definitely the chickens! For us the highlight was being able to open the door to a beautiful, quiet garden and relax while she could safely explore. (more)Emma Harbour
    Leave your toys and books at home!! Everything you need for a couple of weeks is already there. (more)Robert Bradley
    Amazing. A lovely cottage with lovely owners who couldn't do enough to help. We received a lovely warm welcome. The cottage was immaculate. Everything had been thought of. (more)Kathryn Rawlinson
    France self guided challenging cycling vacation
    From
    €1,057
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The most memorable part was Carolynn and Peter's warm hospitality involving lovely food, generous amounts of good wine and cognac and lively conversation around the dinner table. Domino the dog made everyone feel loved. The road cycling is excellent due to the almost deserted roads and hilly terrain. The routes provided are easy to follow, varied and provide a good workout over the week. Tips? Be prepared to put on weight as the food and wine is abundant and hard... (more)Carol Gray

    €1,047

    Both my husband and myself loved our week. Lazing by and in the pool late afternoon was lovely and the weather was hot. Being able to walk littlle or miles or not at all, was good -there is no compulsion to be super active, though you can! If you want to be totally catered for and live in verdant peace for a week, but have company too-this is the place for you! (more)Clare McKee
    Excellent. It was not a thrills and spills vacation, just a quiet retreat where you are looked after. And if that is what you need, this is a place for you. (more)Tina cook
    Pyrenees winter walking vacation, France
    From
    US $1,315
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The fantastic group of people that I shared my vacation with... like minded, laugh a minute, make your own fun people! Our free time was even spent as a group, in search of Lucheon's best sledging spots, we were not disappointed! Tips? Don't skimp on your outdoor gear... good gaiters are a 'must have' item and if you're lucky suncream and sunglasses! Local benefits? Our last group activity, on the way to the airport, was a stop off at the local recycling point,... (more)Pippa Purser

    From
    €722

    It was a beautiful place to stay. The owners couldn't have been any more accommodating. (more)Janice Chantler
    We loved being surrounded by historic French villages; staying in a beautiful rustic (but VERY comfortable) 19th century stone cottage; the warmth and approachability of our hosts Nicole and Alex Crawford; and being spoilt for choice when arranging our daily activities. (more)Jane Lewis

    The very friendly and helpful hosts were the most memorable part of the vacation...Both hiking and cycling were enjoyable activities. (more)Helga Hoffmann-Orton
    The hospitality of our hosts was most memorable...Look forward to a great vacation in beautiful, secluded locations. (more)Hilary Wight
    A wonderfully calming and tranquil vacation rather than an "exciting" one. Should also mention the great hospitality shown by our hosts, delicious home cooked food and generous introductions to local wines and brandies! A lovely relaxing time. (more)Mark McKenzie

    From
    €1,057

    A fantastic place which lived up to my expectations. (more)Katherine Amos
    Excellent. This is a fine place to stay! With lovely people and surroundings. The best parts were riding in unknown rural France with horses up country tracks and beneath trees in occasional woodland. Meeting other riders and brushing up my French whilst the instructor brushed up my riding skills! (more)Liz Beaven
    Tips for other travelers? Stay an extra week!...Ten out of ten. (more)Sue Evans
