Self-catering holiday rentals in France Centre for your home stay

Combining the historic cities of Orleans, Tours and Chartres with the peaceful beauty of the Loire Valley, France Centre is a marvellous destination for a self-catering break. Rent near the city of Orleans and visit its magnificent Cathedral, flower gardens and Museum of Fine Arts. See the home of Joan of Arc or use Orleans as a base to explore the Loire Valley with expert guides. Or head to nearby Tours, with its similarly gorgeous Cathedral. Enjoy a wine tour at the Chateau de Valmer or shop at the boutiques of the Rue Nationale. Slightly to the North, visit the enchanting town of Chartres, see the classically French Chateau de Maintenon and see the charming Maison Picassiette, made entirely from mosaics. Why not time your visit to coincide with the magical Chartres Art and Crafts Fair, held in October and grab some gifts before the Christmas season begins? Out of town, France Central really shines, however. Rent a canal boat and drift down the world-famous Loire Valley. Take a tour led by knowledgeable locals, or take advantage of the region's superb cycle-hire facilities. Head out kayaking, or wander the beautiful woods along well-marked paths. Or enjoy a round of golf, try dirt-biking, or just spend the time touring some of the Valley's stunning gardens. The Loire region is not just beautiful; it is also one of France's most welcoming tourist regions. Visit in Spring to see the spectacular Joan of Arc Festival in Orleans or visit Ferrières en Gâtinais during the Summer to enter a magical time machine with the town's Medieval Festival. Make Summer swing with tickets for the Orleans Jazz Festival, held in July, or just relax in a private rural self-catering home from home.

Holiday Letting in France Centre for your short break

If you want to explore the fine selection of beautiful chateaux in the Centre of France, holiday rental accommodation in the Loire Valley couldn't put you in a better position for discovering such a wealth of magnificent architectural heritage that is so typically French .Holiday cottages in the Loire Valley being a popular choice and one that seems to be perfectly in keeping with the atmosphere of rustic peace that envelops many of the charming rural villages and picturesque regional towns where ancient traditions still influence everyday life in the Centre of France. Holiday rental gites and villas in the Loire Valley are also guaranteed to give you a truly authentic experience of a region as famous for its breath-taking countryside as it is the extraordinary abundance of historical chateaux - in the Loire Valley, holiday accommodation is just as likely to attract wine connoiseurs as history-buffs, although the over-riding appeal with any typically French gite, villa, cottage or apartment rental in the Loire Valley seems to lie in their serenely secluded situations amongst the tranquil rural landscapes of central France. Bed and breakfasts in the Loire Valley are yet another option to consider, especially if you're seeking something that will offer you a totally stress-free, relaxing alternative to a self-catering holiday rental in the Loire Valley and the opportunity to leave the cooking to the experts!

Best time to enjoy France Centre

The Central region is a fabulous destination at any time of year. As it is not a coastal province, sun bathing is less of an issue, but you can still perfect that tan. Enjoying plenty of sunshine during the Summer months, you can relax in rolling fields or peaceful glades, take in the rays on a canal boat or on a beach by the river. In Summer the cultural life of the region really kicks off, while it is the ideal time of year to enjoy a glass of one of the many local wine varieties, including Sauvignon Blanc. Springtime is also a bewitching time to visit, with mild weather and sunshine the norm. See the cathedrals without being buffeted by crowds, and don't worry about fighting for a dinner reservation. In the Spring, rental rates can also be lower, giving you the chance to enjoy a luxury Easter break with the family. With exams around the corner, give the kids a chance to unwind. Escape the stresses of the New Year at work, or head over to surprise your loved one with a Valentine's Day adventure. The main attractions of the France Central region are the kind of things that tourists can enjoy in the Winter as well. Head over between December and February to savour local delicacies and see how the French enjoy their Christmas break. Snap up chocolates and cheese for those back home and celebrate the New Year in gorgeous surroundings. Wake up to croissants and coffee, lunch on the best steak around and wash it all down with world-class wines at any time of year. So book a self-catering holiday in France Central and experience the ideal mixture of natural beauty and sophisticated cities.
