France is very close to the UK, so if you are thinking about renting a country cottage for a holiday and want value for money, French holiday cottages are a good idea. When most people think about a French country cottage, usually they picture open fires, quirky interiors and pretty gardens.

Holiday cottages make a great base

French holiday cottages are usually located in the countryside and many have been redeveloped from a farmhouse, granary or barn.

However they are a cost effective base from where you can explore the local area. So if you want to save a little money on your next holiday you really should think about holiday cottage for your accommodation.

French holiday cottages by the sea

Not only is it really easy to reach the ports, but there are ton of activities available both in and out of the water. Cottages by the seaside tend to be a little more expensive than rural cottages, but they are still cheaper than most other types of accommodation. Staying at a cottage by the coast is also great way to spend some romantic time with your better half, especially during the off season when it is cheaper, because you can take plenty of long walks along beaches that are completely deserted during that time of year.

If you are on a budget you can opt for a self catering holiday which lets you decide how little or much you spend whilst you are there. You have the option of staying in and eating instead of having to eat out at a restaurant all the time and when you finally arrive at your holiday destination you will be safe in the knowledge that the leisure activities you have planned for the family are not going to cost an arm and a leg.
