Parents with a couple of small children, extended family groups with grandchildren and two families combining all appreciate the ease of travelling by car and ferry to a holiday home with pool and mod cons.

Online France specialists French Connections report an increase in enquiries for family villas across France this year. Especially popular are the Dordogne, South West and Loire – all destinations that are easily accessible by the motorway network from either the Channel or Brittany ports. Also popular are Provence and Languedoc Roussillon in the South of France, with many destinations served by low cost airlines.

A self-catering villa holiday allows maximum freedom. Families can choose to relax around the pool and barbecue or get out and get active. France offers a huge range of sports and activities along with theme and water parks, historic towns, free local markets, carnivals and festivals, allowing youngsters to expand their language skills and get absorbed in a different culture.

Eating out is reasonably priced with family-friendly restaurants galore and this, combined with discounted ferry prices, low-cost flights and excellent value accommodation, makes France a more affordable family destination than many people perceive.

Owners of the 5,000 plus villa rentals listed at are being pro-active with promotions and special offers. There are even more savings on family travel through the website, including the cheapest ferry fares, flights and car hire. Plus, for one-stop convenience, holidaymakers can buy good value travel insurance and book currency in advance to get the best rates.

The site also has an online guide to holiday ideas for families, including where to go with teenagers, young children and large groups. There is information too about camping and the best theme parks, so the youngsters need never be short of things to do.
