Rural retreats in France

Bursting with picture-postcard villages and gastronomic delights, a rural retreat in the French countryside allows you to experience first hand la belle vie, that uniquely French take on good living, which values quality time with loved ones, convivial dining and leisurely evenings in tiny bistros or on a sun-warmed terrace.

For couples and families who choose a holiday in rural France, the laid-back way of life is endlessly inviting, from the fresh breakfast croissants bought at the village boulangerie to the peace and quiet in the most idyllic of countryside surroundings, always with a private swimming pool for a cooling dip. Stock up on enough fresh local produce and you may never feel the need to leave your rural retreat.
