There are so many reasons why France is the ultimate holiday destination that it’s hard to know where to start. Its proximity to and easy access from the UK is certainly a plus, especially if you’re travelling with a large family in tow or if you don’t have a lot of time to spare. And there’s no question that the countryside is picture-postcard stunning - think vibrant sunflower fields and verdant vineyards dotted with stone chateaux and sleepy villages. Add to that the cosmopolitan cities, university towns, coastal resorts, river valleys, alpine slopes, blue flag beaches and the general sense of ‘je ne sais quoi’ that makes it all so magical and you’ve got the recipe for a wonderful getaway!
February half term is just round the corner and here at One Off Places we still have some availability for both short breaks and week long stays in some wonderful properties, including a Somerset railway cottage built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and a treehouse for six on the Isle of Wight.
Still seeking a New Year escape? One Off Places has a fantastic selection of places which still have availability - whether you want a romantic bolthole for two, or a bigger house for a group of friends.
If your business is within the hospitality industry – you might therefore be a holiday park, a glamping/camping site, a hotel or country house pub, a bed & breakfast or offer self-catering accommodation – then we hope you will enjoy and be interested in what we have to offer. Or indeed you might be looking to diversify from your core business offering – for example a farmer looking to expand into tourism, a golf club looking to offer on-site accommodation – but you need some guidance and a dollop of divine inspiration!
When it comes to holidays, it's always the right time to book one! I don't know about you, but I find myself careering through January 2016, before even accepting that we've moved on from Christmas and that 2015 is far behind us. Here at One Off Places we're seeing peak season weeks flying off the shelves, and an increasing amount of July and August availability calendars showing as fully booked. Already? I hear you say! January is the time that people's thoughts turn to holidays, dreaming of warmer climes, or simply some time off, out of the rat race, enjoying time with family and loved ones. One Off Places is host to hundreds of properties, all of them individual and distinctive in some way, some way off the wall, and some more traditional. We've selected a few of our favourites to get those holiday juices flowing......
