Self Catering Holidays in France

Fans of self catering holidays will already be aware of the many advantages to choosing this type of break. It allows you utmost flexibility. You are not restricted by hotel breakfast times, you will have more of your own space and chances are you will find yourself staying in a freestanding apartment so you are less likely to be disturbed by other guests.

Holiday Velvet France offers a selection of French holiday rental accommodations to suite all pockets. One of the best tips for finding great self catering accommodation in France is to choose somewhere small. There are plenty of small holiday businesses operating all across the country, either run by locals or expatriates looking for a subsidiary summer income. Avoiding the larger businesses will mean you will receive a more personal service. Holiday home owners will be more attentive to your needs and if they only cater for one or two guests at a time they are likely to be more forthcoming with handy hints about the local area. Be aware that in the depths of rural France, unless your hosts are English speaking expats, you will struggle to communicate in any language other than French.

Another perk of plumping for self catering or camping holidays in France is that you will save money by not eating out every day and every night. Instead, you can head down to the local bakery and take your time choosing your favourite French breads and pastries. Next, work your way along to the nearest delicatessen and pick out a selection of cheeses to try before moving down to the local butchers and finding the perfect fillings for your lunchtime baguettes. From French fancies to marinated olives, there are plenty of sumptuous specialities to sample from the comfort of your own veranda. Don’t forget the wine of course.
