This guide features a wonderful range of houses to rent in France, usually by the week or fortnight, sometimes for shorter periods, like a weekend. This guidebook includes up to 250 properties and covers every type of place to stay, from simple cottages to grand chateaux and everything in between: farms, converted stables, barns and pigeon lofts, townhouses, manor houses, and even some apartments. Some homes come complete with tennis courts and swimming pools; others are simple retreats for bird-watchers who do not want to see another soul.What all these places have in common is that Sawday specialness -- they are all places that we have inspected and think are right for different, often quite subjective reasons -- architecture, charm, decor, position, even quirkiness. We like their style, and our clear descriptions will allow readers to judge if it is right for them, depending on whether they are traveling with children or friends, taking a vacation as a couple, or looking for somewhere to use a base for exploring local markets, walking, cycling, writing that novel (or just reading a couple), whatever. Another great book for independent folk who simply love to be in France!Sometimes owners live next door or nearby, sometimes in a different area or country all together, but there will always be information on hand about what to do and see in the area. The degree of luxury and number of creature comforts will be apparent from each entry. The guide includes properties all over France but concentrates on those particularly lovely areas rich in history with great wine, food, and scenery where people love to linger and explore: the Loire Valley, the Dordogne, and Provence, forexample.
