Large holiday homes in FranceFamily retreats to the countryside; group getaways to vineyards; holidaying with friends on the glittering waters of the French Riviera – whatever you've been conjuring up for that next dream break away, large holiday homes in France ensure your time is all the more special. Large apartments in Paris and ancient chateaux in Bologne are just two tasters of the offerings available at HomeAway; with over 40,000 rentals to choose from when you're holidaying with eight people or more, the options in France are extensive.

Some come with private pools so you never have to venture far for a dip, while others are just steps from the sea; others again sit in unspoiled National Parks, just waiting to be explored by bicycle, on horseback or foot. French holidays are diverse, and so are our rentals.

The only question remains is where you'll choose to stay. With that in mind, here are just a few of our favourite French destinations.

 

Our pick of the best large French villas


   

Large holiday homes in Cote d’Azur Large holiday homes in Cote d’Azur

The subject of songs, celebrity gossip and luscious lips the world over, the Cote D'Azur is a dreamworthy destination. Provence's Mediterranean coast is home to the likes of St Tropez and Cannes, but it's not all glitz and glamour – there's an authentic side, too. That said, how does a heated infinity pool, complete with Jacuzzi, sound? If you want to treat yourself, check out this renovated villa in Carqueiranne. You and your friends can sit out till sun-down on the terrace, while the kids kick about in the small, sandy football pitch.

Large holiday homes in Languedoc-Roussillon Large holiday homes in Languedoc-Roussillon

For something a little less bling but ever-so beautiful, Languedoc-Roussillon's a great spot for group holidays. This traditional farmhouse in Montpellier is set within two hectares of private grounds, and it's ideal for families with different tastes. Hate sea and sand? Then just jump in the large private swimming pool. Can't wait to be a beach bum? It's close to the coast, too. In the wider Montpellier area, you can visit the oldest Botanical Gardens in Europe, the Jardin des Plantes.

Large holiday homes in Aquitane Large holiday homes in Aquitane

Aquitaine is a gourmet's haven, known for its truffles and foie gras – but it's also home to an array of prehistoric sites, including some of the oldest cave paintings in the world. For groups looking for a getaway authentically French and fascinating in equal measure, consider this Dordogne villa overlooking the medieval town of Sarlat – the swimming pool, hot tub and BBQ area mean balmy nights can only get better. On Saturday, walk into the town for the market, or travel a little further for a day of canoeing on the Dordogne River.

Large holiday homes in Corsica Large holiday homes in Corsica

Corsica's a magnificent destination for larger group holidays, offering sea, sand and amazing sights alongside a flurry of sun-bleached villas. Porto Vecchio, on the southern coast, is a good choice when considering destinations: if a cruise to the Lavezzi Islands doesn't appeal, perhaps a lazy afternoon on Cala Rossa will. This four-bedroom, four-bathroom villa (yep, no more arguments about who's first in the shower!) is stunning, offering a heated swimming pool with scintillating views out to sea. You can easily keep your eyes peeled for the relatives that did fancy the boat trip!

Large holiday homes in Ile-de-France Large holiday homes in Ile-de-France

Thought it was impossible to bag a big rental in Paris? Think again. This classic and somewhat eccentric apartment in the heart of the city is set between Rue Saint Martin and Boulevard de Sébastopol (in a 17th-century building no less), so you're just a short walk from the capital's most famed fashion boutiques. Check out Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower (this is Paris, after all), but also make a trip to the market on Rue du Bretgane, and bag fresh bread every morning from the local bakers. This is group accommodation – in style.
