French Countryside Home Rentals

posted in: Travel 0

Escape to the enchanting hills of the French countryside. Marvel at the views, embrace the culture and enjoy all the food options the region has to offer. Renting a house in France can be a spectacular getaway. A time to enjoy the small villages dotting this beautiful land. Sure there are several chateaus across the country, but to have a home, maybe with a private pool, is a satisfying way to spend your vacation.

Renting a house can be a little intimidating for some, but it's so common these days, it's almost like renting a hotel room. The huge plus is the ability to rent a gorgeous house for around the same price as a hotel.

Below I have a list of homes that I would recommend based on the amenities and location. For each home I have the nightly price for rental (based on the second week in July 2020.) Then, in the little charts, I break down how much the house comes out to per room. This lets you know that the huge price tags some rental homes come with, are really a bargain. For example, a six house that rents for $1000 a night. Sounds pricey right, but when you look at the cost per room of only $167, that's a steal! So for this example house, maybe you have 3 families going in on a house together, the cost per family would be $334 per night. It's like getting a penthouse suite for a fraction of the price.

So, with that, I hope you enjoy reviewing the homes below!
