VFB Holidays, in conjunction with Sea France, has just launched an outstanding promotion: ferry crossings to France are just £49 return per car (including five passengers) when booked with any VFB cottage in France. This applies to any date in 2011, and any Dover-Calais crossing, so long as it’s booked by 30th April.
Imagine this: a beautiful stone-built cottage in the Ardèche (with a grassy garden and built-in barbeque) for £327 – not per person, but in total! That’s just £65 pp, based on five people for seven nights,with ferry crossing included (Le Moulin des Barbiers– quote property code REY.07). You’d struggle to have a week in the West Country for as little as that. Why settle for one’s own doorstep when you can explore and be authentically inspired elsewhere? And who wouldn’t swap the spring and summertime agony of the A303 for the rapidity of a French autoroute?
The following cottages can also be ‘Sea-Franced’ for more money-saving satisfaction:
La Chambaudière (sleeps six), an 18th-century restored farmhouse (including converted stables and hayloft) in the Loire Valley, that’s ideal for a family with its 1500m² lawned garden, swing and the owners’ farm to visit, 300m away. It’s a comfortable, spacious property with considerable appeal. From £423 total – just £85 pp based on five sharing – quote property code GRA.37.
Chez Noel (sleeps four) is a pink house in a sleepy Normandy village, featured by VFB for 34 years. Overlooking pastures to the Forest of Perseigne, the property has a large, secluded, laurel-hedged garden and, for the equestrian-inclined, there are many famous stud farms to visit nearby. From £388 total – just £97 pp based on four sharing – quote property code MIT.61.
Quiétude (sleeps four) is a stunning, single-storey barn conversion with private swimming pool, overlooking sunflower fields in Gascony. There is a sunny terrace with built-in barbecue and retractable awning, an expansive garden, and guests may fish in the lake, 400m away. From £433 total – just £108 pp based on four sharing – quote property code MOR.47.
