Run Away to a Luxury Villa in France for Christmas or New Year!

As Black Friday thrusts the frantic festive season into full swing and Christmas tunes blast out on an endless loop, the idea of running away from the whole thing might be very appealing! With Anglo French Properties, there’s still time to book a luxury French villa, chateaux or country house for Christmas or New Year, with prices from just £2,070 for a villa on the Cote d’Azur.

Most of the Anglo French Properties sleep 10 people or more and provide plenty of space for family and friends to enjoy feasting and festivities together but also to find quiet corners, or whole wings, for a little peace.  All the properties are located in the mildest and sunniest regions of Provence, the Cote d’Azur and South West France and many of those available through the winter have roaring real fires as well as heating. All of them have well equipped kitchens and large dining rooms to have the most amazing seasonal spread, and just imagine the delicacies this could include from amazing French markets, from luxurious foie gras and confit de canard to highly prized truffles and Mediterranean seafood.

La Marmotte provides an exclusive setting for Christmas or New Year on the Cote d’Azur, located just below the pretty ‘village perché’ of St Paul de Vence and only 8km from Nice. The villa has two ensuite bedrooms and stunning views from the dining terrace. In addition, another couple or a teenager can have a studio cottage to themselves, just 10 metres away. 7 nights at La Marmotte over Christmas or New Year cost £2,070 for up to 6 people.

Also in the Cote d’Azur, Le Mas de Font Joie is a luxury villa located on the outskirts of the famous perfume town of Grasse, just 25 minutes’ drive from Nice. The villa is also less than half an hour from Cannes, which has a twinkling Christmas village of over 60 chalets near the harbour. The villa has 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are ensuite, plus a separate 1-bedroom annexe, with its own dining/kitchenette. 7 nights at Le Mas de Font Joie over Christmas or New Year cost £3,530 for up to 12 people.  

For a fairytale setting in South West France, Le Moulin de St Sulpice is effectively three fabulous French villas in one, converted from an ancient watermill, making it perfect for several families to enjoy Christmas or New Year together, without being in each other’s pockets! The 3-bedroom miller’s house sleeps 6 and is linked by an outdoor dining terrace to a 2-bedroom ‘Rapunzel-like’ tower which sleeps 4. A self-contained 1-bedroom cottage (sleeps 2) is opposite the main house. Le Moulin is set on the banks of the River Cele and surrounded by stunning Lot scenery. 7 nights at Le Moulin de St Sulpice over Christmas or New Year cost £3,500.
