ProvenceFrance is a country that evokes strong imagery. Long before we've booked our passage on Brittany Ferries to St Malo, we have a good idea of what to expect. We know what we want from our French holiday, be it romance, rural bliss, gastronomy or wine. Some people visit France to ski; others go to sunbathe. No one just shows up, unannounced, clutching a dog-eared Michelin roadmap.

If you're planning a French holiday, the odds are you've already got a good idea of what you want: the region you intend to visit, the sort of accommodation you'd like (be it chateaux, cottage or chalet) and the itinerary you'd like to follow. To bring your holiday plans to completion, we've rounded up a selection of wheelchair friendly properties in five beautiful French regions. With accommodation that's tailored to your needs, you'll be able to relax in comfortable surroundings throughout your holiday.

Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Brittany Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Brittany

Brittany retains a strong regional identity, long after 'petite Bretagne' was officially absorbed into France. The Breton language still resonates, while Brittany's standing stones will still be here several millennia from now. Why were they erected? No one really knows, but that doesn't stop tourists flocking here every year to admire these mysterious lumps of rock. For some the stones provide a spiritual connection, while for others they're just an Instagram moment. Whatever your take on Brittany's historical artefacts and cultural relics, you're going to need somewhere to stay while exploring the region. For price and accessibility, the wooden cottages in this Le Conquet resort are hard to beat. Alternatively, this seaside apartment in Dinard promises spectacular views of St Malo bay and is equipped with large bedrooms and a balcony.

Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Normandy Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Normandy

Its green pastures, capricious seas, spectacular cliffs and tranquil gardens make Normandy very special. Coupled with some of the best wine and cheese in France – no mean feat – there's a lot to love in this bucolic region. Normandy's most famous attractions include the Bayeux Tapestry, which, for an ancient piece of craftwork, still looks pretty sharp, while its ports are crammed with secret nooks and passageways. When you're not exploring castles, tasting vineyards and cramming crepes (the ones made just with butter and sugar are the best), unwind back at your Normandy holiday home, with wheelchair friendly options including this clean, bright cottage in Monmartin, complete with a neatly manicured garden and easy access.

Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Lorraine Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Lorraine

France is a country hardly short on history, but Lorraine's modern history is as colourful as its distant past. Straddling the border of France, Germany and Luxembourg, this mountainous region is made up of rich farmland, clear mountain streams and old market towns. Visitors can pay their respects at Verdun, scene of some of the most intense fighting in both world wars, and explore the town of Nancy, with its majestic 18th-century buildings replete with ornate columns and wrought ironwork. Simple, inexpensive accommodation includes this apartment in Saulxures sur Moselotte, which has wheelchair access, and this charming wooden studio near Gerardmer.

Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Provence Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Provence

A French holiday doesn't just mean the prospect of new culture and new cuisine; you also get to say hello to a new climate. The further south of England you go, the warmer it gets, and Provence is about as south-easterly as France gets. This means vineyards, olive groves, fruit trees and warm, clear evenings when dining on the terrace is essential, a jumper optional. Holiday options include this picturesque studio, in the heart of Provence, and an idyllic stone house which once served as a mill, but now echoes to the sound of nothing more than holidaymakers splashing in the pool.

Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Burgundy Wheelchair friendly accommodation in Burgundy

It's hard to think of Burgundy without thinking of wine. If you live there, the novelty of being surrounded by banging vineyards probably wears off, but for the rest of us, Burgundy is all about the fruits of the vine, complemented by the medieval churches, walled towns and sleepy villages that break up the region's green fields and hedgerows. The history here is as rich and plentiful as the grapes that are synonymous with France's wine-producing heartland. Accommodation includes this simple wooden farm cottage, with wheelchair access and a cosy gite in the village of Chatellenot, the perfect place for a peaceful, library-quiet holiday.
