With so many different regions, France is undoubtedly one of the most diverse vacation rental destinations in the world. From quant villages in Provence to beautiful vineyards in Languedoc-Roussillon, and from the beachside loveliness of the Cote d'Azur all the way to the rich history of Paris, France is home to some of the most amazing scenery, culture and food in the world. Not surprisingly, then, France is one of the most popular destinations within Europe, since it offers ski, beach and country holidays, as well as world-class cities offering the best in shopping, dining, and art. With all this variety, it's also not surprising that there are a ton of unique France vacation rentals available for travelers as well.
From restored chateaus to simple "gîtes" (a French term that usually refers to a country house), France vacation rentals can be found in nearly every price range. Of course, the exact accommodation depends on the region one is visiting. Paris vacation rentals , for example, typically consist of apartments within any of the city's various districts (or arrondissement, as the French call them), although houseboats docked on the Seine are also popular, while Provence vacation rentals typically consist of free-standing country homes that overlook the countryside. No matter what type of accommodation you choose, though, it's possible to find rentals in nearly every price range, which is very useful considering how expensive hotels in France can be.
One thing travelers love about France vacation rentals in at the owners often seek to offer their guests an experience, rather than simple accommodation. Often, guests will be greeted with a gift basket offering local produce, a bottle of local wine, and perhaps even a baguette or two. Owners are also generally available to help guests should they have any concerns, as well as to recommend any local attractions or restaurants that the traveler may not know about. Because the vacation rental industry is more mature in France, owners offer these little extras in order to remain competitive and ensure that their guests not only return, but also that they recommend the rental to others as well.
