Self Catering Accommodation in France

France needs little selling - its combination of stunning and varied landscapes, fine food and wine, high culture and accessibility make it a perennially popular destination. If you want to enjoy the best France has to offer with the freedom to do what you want, when you want and the option to cook for yourself (if you can resist the temptation of local shops and eateries), then a self-catered break is for you. With options across the country, from the Alps to yurts in the Dordogne and even a barge, we feature some of the best self-catering places to stay in France below, all of which you can reach by train or ferry.
