There's much more to France than Paris—from the fairy-tale châteaux of the Loire Valley to the lavender fields of Provence, and the French Riviera's celebrity-studded beaches. World-famous gastronomy and fine wines provide the perfect complement to the country's alpine views and architectural masterpieces.

Stay in one of our 5 cottages for up to 5 people or in B&B, with two bedrooms each with a king size bed. The fully equipped kitchen has the necessary equipment to make good dishes. A flat screen TV is available in the lounge area. The en-suite shower room has a shower, a basin and a toilet. Enjoy a covered terrace and another uncovered. The indoor swimming pool is free.
Stayed for two nights in this very modern welcoming and clean place. We were welcomed by Kevin who was the most generous and charming host. Breakfast was good, lots of jams, fresh bread and all the usuals. The place has a good feel and a very nice swimming pool with a wide terrace. We didn’t have time to enjoy them. We will certainly come back ! Thank you Cedric & Kevin

Coucoo Grands Cépages est situé au cœur des vignes de Châteauneuf-du-Pape. À 20 km d’Avignon, l’expérience Coucoo se vit à l’horizontale - nul besoin de grimper - avec trois types de cabanes : les cabanes flottantes, les cabanes sur pilotis et les cabanes végétalisées ! Imaginées pour s’intégrer parfaitement à l’environnement, elles arborent un style très méditerranéen et design avec de grandes ouvertures, permettant au soleil d’y mener la belle vie. Baptisées Cosmos, Parenthèse, Lavande, Millésime, Bora Bora… Les noms des 15 cabanes évoquent instantanément la déconnexion, la quiétude, le plaisir. L’architecte italien Marco Lavit a pris soin d’ajouter une part de ludique aux différentes cabanes. Il n’est donc pas étonnant de trouver des hamacs intégrés au sol des terrasses sur pilotis ou de dormir dans une cabane dite végétalisée, façon Bilbo le Hobbit. Enfin, une magnifique piscine biologique offre à tous la possibilité de se rafraîchir au beau milieu des vignes !
Beautifully situated on a lake, teaming with carp, we found the cabin was cleverly designed, clean and comfortable, with thoughtful touches. Staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming. Our food paniers (evening and breakfast) were tasty and well thought out, with local produce. We left feeling very relaxed, after what felt like longer than one night - we hope to return and will definitely recommend to friends.

What an incredible week I had Chalet La Chouette! I have stayed with other standard chalets companies in Meribel over the years, and thought I'd treat myself to Delicious Mountain this year. The service I received during my stay was absolutely exceptional! The staff were outstanding, incredibly friendly and would go out of their way to ensure your stay was perfect. The breakfast, canapés and dinners were just fantastic, to the point I watched what I was eating in the day to ensure I could enjoy the food back at the chalet! The views from the chalet and hottub were incredible, just adding to a first class chalet! I will absolutely be coming back, a 5 star stay! Massive thanks to the team for a tremendous holiday!

Domaine de Cournet-Haut, set in the picturesque Dordogne Valley, is a 17th century lodge set on 13 acres of beautiful gardens, lush lawns and bright mature forest.
We absolutely loved our stay at Cournet Haut. Fanny and Alan have created such a relaxing, peaceful and tranquil place. Our kids loved the freedom to explore the grounds and spent many happy hours splashing in the pool and bouncing on the trampoline with friends. We stayed in Le Charme and loved the peace and quiet of the surrounding forest. We’re already thinking about next year!

We had a great 3 nights here & loved the whole experience. Gerald was very helpful & the breakfast was excellent. The beds were clean & comfortable. Other parts of the cabin were quite dusty/ cobwebby. I’m guessing these aren’t easy to clean but it did seem like they needed a bit of a more thorough clean. One of the chairs was broken. Some of the light bulbs didn’t work & some of the beams on the veranda & on the bridge up to the house were broken. In a place like this, you don’t expect everything to be pristine & perfect but for the current price, I think they need to be kept to a slightly higher standard of maintenance. We enjoyed visits to the local town & swimming pool.

Our group of 12 (3 families with 6 grown kids in their early 20’s) were hosted the owners Joss and Dee and the chalet hosts Tom and Eden. I only have positive comments about our stay and cannot recommend the Chalet highly enough. The comment they couldn’t do enough for us truly applies to the service provided to us for our weeks stay. From the the exceptional quality and service of ours meals to quality of the accommodation and the willingness of all to make our stay the fantastic holiday it was. If your looking for a fanatic Chalet with great food and hosts then look no further. On previous ski holidays we have had ski in/out facilities and had some reservations about whether the 5 minute lift to and from the pistes lift each day would work. I can say this worked out well without any hinderance or inconvenience to our skiing. Hopefully you’ll book and experience a fantastic stay as we did. Neil, Sammi and our ski group

Whilst the site has a lot of plus points we were really disappointed with the accomodation. We paid additional to have what was meant to be the best accomodation as did our friends who we travelled with. We paid the same and booked at the same time yet the difference in accomodation was like chalk and cheese. They should have equal facilities but that was not the case. Despite writing to customer services 4 times since returning I have had no acknowledge ment. I have travelled to France every year for the past 13 years and can honestly say this year's accomodation was the worst. Very little space around caravans and lack of privacy we went in to Le Bois Maison and the grounds around the homes was even worse. Piled on top of each other absolute no privacy rusty old tables and chairs dumped at back of caravans. Awful! Given the lack of customer service and awful accomodation in both sites I will never use Siblu again!

Good holiday résidence, well located close to the beach and the Bois de la Chaise, about 1 km away from Noirmoutier en l'Ile town centre. Renting a bike is the best option you can take to explore the island. Odalys offers a nice swimming pool and quite up to date holiday appartments. Be aware that the number of persons that can sleep in the appartment is always including turning the sofa into a bed, so you maximally get two bedrooms (3 pièces includes the living room)

Château Canet is a traditional and family run wine estate, recognized as one of the leading "domaines" of Minervois, Languedoc-Roussillon. Among the vines and olive plantations you will find a cluster of nine independent cottages all converted from original buildings and the Château itself. Within the grounds you will find plenty to keep the whole family occupied including a swimming pool, tennis court and children’s play room. While on holiday here you can explore the vineyards, hike through miles of private countryside following herb-scented trails or use one of the estate's bikes and venture further afield, along the peaceful country roads surrounding the estate.
I would give Victoria 6 stars if possible. The chateau is amazing, the surroundings are perfect and the wine is stunning. But what made our stay truly unforgettable was Victoria's hospitality. Thank you so much for an amazing time. We went with a group of 30 people and had the whole chateau to ourselves and it was an amazing experience.

The domaine is vast, perfectly maintained and conveniently located. The houses are equipped with all the necessary amenities and are far nough from each other to have the necessary privacy. The 6 pools on the domain are obviously a plus, some with a magnificent view on the valley. The tenants are nice and helpful. I was there with a group of 100+ people and everything went smoothly but I consider coming back with my family.
