Diving into your own private pool, taking a nap in the shade, or cooking up an al-fresco feast for the whole family; there’s not much better than a holiday villa in France with a pool. Whether you’re hoping to get away with your nearest and dearest, or bring along a wider group, our holiday villas all have that special ‘home from home’ feeling (with added sunshine!) Here are five of our favourite villas in France with a pool. 

 

Le Mas, Saint Croxe, Dordogne

Staying in this honey-hued farmhouse is a treat for groups and families  it’s light and spacious with a big kitchen, a table made for long conversations, toys and games for children and heaps of books. Outside is where you’ll spend most of your time relaxing, there’s a veg and herb garden, a sheltered ‘summer kitchen’ and a private heated pool with wonderful views and lavender and jasmine scenting the air.

This spacious, secluded, 18th-century house, is one of our favourite villas in France with a poolyou’ll love the sweeping views and the fact that the water is heated to a constant 26 degrees. There’s masses of space to spread out both inside and out; including two sitting rooms and your choice of terraces. Beaches are less than an hour away, but we wouldn’t blame you if you chose to not leave this peaceful Provence haven.

A seriously stylish escape, this Côte d’Azur property lives up to its name, with incredible views over the Gulf of St Tropez from the infinity pool; making it one of our favourite holiday villas in France with a pool. Throw open the vast floor-to-ceiling windows each morning, we guarantee you will never get tired of that view – whatever the weather. Take a drive to the relaxed beach resort of San Peire, only 15 minutes away, where you can rent a boat for the day or enjoy one of the local restaurants.

La Grange du Lac, Cazals, Lot 

Just outside of the lovely traditional village of Cazals, this restored stone barn is the sort of place where you can fully relax into the French way of life. Wander into the village for freshly baked croissants and a baguette in the morning, before taking a stroll around the grounds (there’s 5 acres, a lake and poplar plantation) or a dip in your own private pool. If you fancy venturing further afield, owners Serge and Sam can recommend all the best places to visit – including the numerous Michelin starred restaurants within a short drive.
