Farm Holidays in France
There is nothing quite like a farmstead in rural France, with the green, rolling hillsides and peaceful atmosphere surrounding you.
Farmsteads & Holiday Cottages in Rural France
Enjoy a holiday cottage on a working farm with your family and explore the wonderful outdoors. As working farms are often spread across many acres, your little ones will have plenty of space to let off steam, see the animals and even enjoy a tractor rides. Head to the historical region of Auvergne, a mountainous and beautiful area located in the centre of the country. Popular with hikers and outdoor activities, the area is also a perfect spot to enjoy the local cheeses. Try Bleu d'Auvergne or Cantal – both made in the region. French cuisine alone may be enough to inspire you to rent a farmstead in France, however many farms offer the opportunity to try the local and freshly made produce from their own animals. Some may even allow children to pick their own eggs! This combines both a fun holiday with a valuable learning experience.
Outdoor Activities, Wine Regions & Cities
Another popular spot to rent a holiday home in France is Aquitane. Boasting both a coast and the Pyrenees Mountains in the south-west of France, Aquitane is a picturesque region. The capital of the region, Bordeaux, is famous for its wine – with it being often referred to as the world's wine capital. Relax in your peaceful Aquitane farmstead, before heading out to enjoy the beautiful city of Bordeaux and all its delicacies. If you are looking at relaxing and enjoying the quiet French countryside, a break on a French farmstead may be the ideal trip for you. Being on a farm, you can get to know the owners, try fresh produce and share meals together thanks to self-catering accommodation. As the holiday cottages in France are often in the countryside, the surrounding areas are often ideal for walks, hikes or cycling, meaning there is something to keep everyone entertained. Whether you are looking for a peaceful, romantic break with your loved one or a fun getaway with family, farm holidays in France have something for everyone.
