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.
