Top 5 travel tips for France when booking a Holiday Home:

1. When you picture France, you probably think of stretching purple lavender fields in lush countryside. This exact landscape exists in the Provence. The lavender fields are especially beautiful on the de Valensole Plateau between the Verdon river and the Lac de Sainte-Croix reservoir in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. An intense lavender aroma is present over the whole plateau during blossoming at the end of June.

2. The Atlantic coast is a hotspot for water sports. Surfers can truly feel at home here and can ride the high waves of the active ocean along the rugged coast. A number of surfing schools offer various courses – from beginner level to advanced: All surfers can let off steam and enjoy the waves. Great holiday homes and holiday homes recharge you after a tough day out on the board.

3. Regular fresh layers of snow, picturesque alpine pastures, good quality ski lifts, adventurous deep snow slopes and 264 miles of fine pistes: The, “Paradiski” ski region which covers the resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne offers greats conditions for top days out in the snow. Book a chalet with Holidu by the ski resort which lies in the Draguignan Region in Eastern France and offers breath taking views of

Mont Blanc when there is good visibility. A cable car connects both ski resorts so that they are both accessible to one another.

4. The Island of Corsica lies in the Mediterranean sea and is paradise for hikers; approximately 86% of the Island is mountainous. Corsica offers a surrounding coast and hiking possibilities to excite all kinds of hikers. As the Island is relatively small, a rewarding great view of the sea is never far away. The island also proves a great beach holiday with many villas available: The crystal clear turquoise sea and fine sandy beaches prevail around the coast.

5. With many beautiful apartments available, the beautiful city of Marseille is recommended, lying by the Mediterranean Sea, featuring charm, chic und Laissez-faire: This is what is on show in the European capital of culture for 2013. The clear landmark of the city is the pilgrimage chapel of Notre-Dame de la Garde in its neo-byzantine style, which offers an amazing 360 degree panorama over the whole of Marseille. You can view contemporary art in the Civilisations de l'Europe, with the Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée offering intriguing insights into the history of the Mediterranean region.
