July 6, 2011 - PRLog -- Not only are families feeling more confident about going away, they are choosing France because it offers a villa holiday without the expense or hassle of travelling to Spain or Italy. Being literally on the doorstep, there are more travel options as it’s easy to get to by plane, car or even train.

Regions such as the south and south west of France are packed with gorgeous villas, many with their own swimming pool. Most popular this year, according to the specialist website, are Languedoc Roussillon, with its gorgeous wines and laid-back lifestyle, and the Dordogne, with its rivers, peaceful countryside and beautiful market towns.

While a French villa holiday is often associated with the south of France and the ever-popular Mediterranean coastline, there are also plenty of beautiful villas to rent in North, West and central France, where rental prices are usually lower.

Brittany and Normandy are great for families. Travel is easy because you can just pack the kids and gear in the car and head for the ferry. When you get there, miles of quiet beaches and rocky coves wait to be explored and food like crepes and oysters demand to be enjoyed, along with the local apple juice or cider.

Anyone looking for the best possible deal on a holiday villa in France should check holiday rental special offers from villa owners. French Connections always has great deals available online with discounts and promotions for early booking, late availability and off peak bookings. And holidaymakers have the reassurance of direct contact with the owner to discuss their requirements and know what to expect.

If travel plans aren't dictated by the school holidays, then consider booking a villa at the end of June or beginning of July or in the second to last week in September, when temperatures are slightly cooler but still warm enough to take advantage of the pool.
