Let’s begin our journey in Brittany, a wild and beautiful region in the North West of France. This superb region is enjoyed the most by families due to the variety of activities available, from cycling to long walks around the coast line, there will always be something to entertain you, no matter how old you are!

Villanovo recomments Villa Carole, in the Cote d’Armor, northern Brittany. This magnificent villa includes 4 bedrooms, one being a dormitory to fit 8 children or adults. Thus, Villa Carole is ideal for 3 families. If you are in search of a calming, soothing holiday, you are landing in the right place! The villa’s modern and all white decor provides a serene ambiance, as well as the vegetation surrounding the villa, which itself is in the middle of the countryside, 30 kilometres away from the coast.

Our next stop is the splendid Ile de Ré, still on the west coast of France. For a traditional french holiday, it is the ideal place! Immerse yourself in french culture, amongst the multitude of Parisians who treasure this small island in the summer. Incarnate the French cliché while wearing a stripy navy and white jumper, bought at one of the local markets,riding on a bike, with a baguette in your front basket.
