best family holidays in france - a selection of accommodation

The holiday homes photgraphed above & below are the most recommended or best self catering holidays I can offer you based on the independent recommendations I received from families who have already been there and experienced them. Hopefully, by following these recommendations it may lead to the best family holiday in France you have ever had!

Accommodation options in the table below include french gites (holiday cottages), family friendly holiday parks, apartments and villas. In terms of the reviews left, I am very careful to ensure I only post genuine ones so that you can be assured they are honest. For example, I require a valid email address for all reviewers & I ensure those people have stayed at the accommodation by validating it with the owner. If I receive a poor review, I launch a full investigation, speaking both to the reviewer & the owner - if I think the review is malicious, I do not post it as it can destroy someone's livelihood. If I receive several poor reviews for the same property, I remove it from the website as I only want to offer you the best holiday accommodation available.
