Outstanding Value Villa Holidays in France

Christmas is behind us, the cold weather has set in and we’re all turning our minds to the summer and dreaming of a bit of sunshine. Here I take a look at some villas in France which offer the chance to have a holiday with a big group of friends or the whole family without breaking the bank. Relax by your private pool after a morning spent sauntering around the local market, all for less than the cost of staying in a hotel. Get yourself a bargain with one of these houses which are remarkably good value.

Bastide Eve, Provence

The inviting pool at Bastide Eve

Brand new to our portfolio for 2016, we welcome Bastide Eve to the Red Savannah family. Set in wonderful gardens, and with a fantastic view out across the valley, this property has something for everyone. Those looking for an active holiday will explore the wooded slopes of the Luberon which stands nearby whilst the art buffs will be interested to explore Ménerbes. The photographer Dora Maar once lived here and the great Picasso himself also had a house in the village. One can understand an artist’s draw to the area; the region is naturally beautiful, the people are friendly, and the pace of life is very easy-going.

Bastide Eve has seven bedrooms and sleeps twenty guests. At only £9,467 in high season this comes to under £70 per person per night.

Hameau d’Albi, South West France

The Hameau d’Albi is deep in the French countryside

This is a rambling property in the South West of France. There are three different buildings with bedrooms, yet somehow it all works together. Set in rolling countryside, life moves at a slower pace here. This is the place to bring the whole family; the house has eight bedrooms and can sleep ten adults and six children. The rooms are spread out between the main house, the guest house, and the pigeonnier (as seen in the above picture). There are a number of quiet terraces around the house, perfect for reading a book with a glass of wine whilst the kids play in the large swimming pool.

In short the Hameau d’Albi is exceptionally good value. A week in high season costs only £7,199 which comes to under £65 per person per night for your dream French retreat.

Domaine de Fleury, South West France

Domaine de Fleury is a perfect family getaway

Domaine de Fleury is a perfect family getaway

Another property for the whole family, Domaine de Fleury has five double bedrooms and a dormitory room perfect for the kids to have their own space. Enjoy soaking up the sun by the side of the pool, complete with a pool house for when some shade is required.

Take the team for a day out to nearby Carcassonne, a magical fortified city. It is stunning to look at, seemingly straight out of a medieval tale of knights and dragons. There is plenty to explore within the walls themselves, from torture museums (not as scary as they sound!) to fine dining. The regions speciality dish is Cassoulet, a rich slow-cooked casserole sure to fill you up.

At only £5,992 per week in high season, this comes to under £65 per person per night.
