Wow, a momentous day today as BoJo takes the reins with his primary focus of getting UK out of EU on October 31.  If you’ve been hankering for a France fix, there is no better time than now to make your plans for a holiday escape!

What’s your fancy?  Visiting an Escape to the Château DIY château, enjoying some gourmet dining, Brocante shopping, or perhaps something Sportif such as paddling a kayak down the Dordogne river or bicycling the 600 km path from Caen to Burgundy.  But maybe you would rather come to France and just chillax, and that’s OK too! Oh, go on then… Indulge yourself with a day at the horse races in Deauville.

Whatever it is that tickles your fancy, you will surely find it here in France.  And, since UK citizens are still part of the EU for these 100 fleeting days, it is E-z P-z to come and join your fellow Brit’s, as John Candy said – by planes, trains, and automobiles.  Heck, you can even walk on to the ferry or ride your bicycle. The important thing is GET HERE!  La vie en France awaits you.

Talking about the Escape to the Château DIY venues, some are featuring special events that are worth your consideration.  Château du Bailleul is having 2 events next month that are open to the public!  Quench your thirst and wet your whistle at their First Annual Beer Festival on August 3rd, or attend their Summer Garden Party on August 25th.  Not far away is Château de la Basmaignée, where they are having Sunday Openings to enjoy an afternoon walk around their massive estate on August 4th, August 25th, and September 25th.

You might be thinking that with all of this cool stuff happening in France that there may be no room at the inn, but not so!  While it is true that most of the Escape to the Château DIY’s are fully booked for the season, there are hundreds of unique places to stay including villas, quirky bungalows and yes, even châteaux!  And, through our affiliation with Oliver’s Travels, we are pleased to extend a £100 off discount when booking a villa between now and the end of August with a minimum 7-night stay.  See the T’s & C’s below for your discount code.

With that, I wish you Bon Voyage and hope to see you soon here in France!
