Accommodation to suit all the family

Every family is different. Whether you are looking for a relaxed getaway in a French holiday cottage, a more social holiday in a gite complex or a holiday resort geared up with lots of activities for your children, you’ll find something here on France for Families to suit you.

Approved accommodation

Here at France for Families we have developed great relationships with our Owners over the years and we work passionately with those who we believe offer the very best in family friendly accommodation, including family friendly Villas in France, Gites and Cottages.

When bringing new property on board France for Families, these holiday homes are carefully checked in terms of health and safety as well as assessing how each property is suitable for families with children.

We liaise with the Owners throughout the year and particularly in 2020 and in 2021, when Covid-19 is front of everyone’s mind.

Why is France so family-friendly?

A child friendly holiday in France? It’s ideal in so many ways.

It’s easy to travel there – no long queues at airports, no long flights. Take a ferry with your car or enjoy a quick journey through the tunnel and within a short space of time you can be driving through quiet and relaxing countryside, enjoying the feeling of getting away from it all and exploring somewhere different.

There are plenty of family activities – find out more about that on our family activity holidays in France page, plus family friendly beaches that suit toddlers to teens.  Head to Brittany or the Languedoc for pretty coves and gently sloping beaches, or the west coast for rolling waves, perfect for body boarding and surfing.

Take a look at our recommended family holidays in France in fabulous settings and excellent child friendly facilities. We love Brittany and along the west coast, where the beaches are plentiful, crowds are easily avoided and the temperatures are balmy and warm.

Or head further south the the rolling hills of Provence or the dramatic inland landscapes of the Loire, Dordogne and Midi Pyrenees. We have a selection of family friendly accommodation, from spacious Villas to pretty cottages and gites.
