What To Check Before Booking Your France Villa

Posted by admin | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 27-03-2012


Booking accommodation in the shape of a holiday home is a popular way to accommodate your party in luxury. Due to its wide array of scenery and proximity to the UK, France is one of the most popular destinations during the warm season. If you are about to book your France villa here is what you should check just before confirming.

Insurance – There are two types of insurance that you should get. The first type is medical private insurance for you and for your party. Personal insurance will never be included in the price of the villa as it is based on your personal circumstances. The second type is similar to accidental insurance to cover any case of damage to the property. It may be included in the pack, however you should check and make provisions for the cost in case you have to add it on top. Accidental insurance is recommended in particular if you are taking children along with you.

Transportations – Next to the villa’s listing you will often find a map with the location of the area. If you intend to move about and explore the region you should check the status of the public transportation system as in some rural locations in might be too scattered and hiring a car might make more sense. Furthermore, you should check how you plan to arrive at the villa, as most packages will not include transit to the property. Either book your transit at the ordering stage or make suitable arrangement using a local service before you arrive.

Type – There are plenty of properties to choose from, some are suitable for couples and some are suitable for large parties. Make sure that the property matches the intended number of people and that you do not exceed the permitted number of residents. If you intent to bring a pet (popular with holidaymakers arriving by car) you must check with the property owner before as most villas will not allow it.

Spec – The level of spec and equipment between self-catering holiday villas will vary immensely and you should make a note of items that are important to you vs. what is available at the villa. Examples may include satellite TV, Wi-Fi, Game Station, air conditioning and so on. The available equipment might influence your choice or you may bring it with you. For example, a game station to entertain the kids (and adults…) is very easy to carry with. Others might be harder to bring with so make a list to avoid any disappointment.
