Here’s our best tips on how to save money on your French villa rental – it’s so easy!
1) Take your holiday in late August and you could save a ridiculous 2000 euros/week on the price of a villa with pool at one of our villa resorts in Aquitaine. How is this possible?! Well, our French partners price the summer weeks to match the French school holidays; most Frenchies are heading back home by mid-August, so prices come tumbling down in the second half of the month. For example, a 4 bedroom villa with heated pool at Messanges costs 3805 euros/wk in early August but just 1100 euros for the last week of August! Calling all northern Europeans – take advantage of this folly!
2) Book in at the Messanges villa resort where, thanks to a change in ownership, prices have plummeted for the 2013 season – happy days. First week of August next summer? A 3 bedroom villa with private heated pool is a staggering 1000 euros cheaper than 2012! Take a look at the Messanges villas with heated pools.
3. Reserve a Moliets Plage villa and earn an exclusive Alternative Aquitaine discount – 15% off a minimum 7-night stay before 20 July & from 21 September, if booked before the 30/04/2013. Visit the Moliets Plage villas with pools.
4. Book a 'Best Value' villa! Take a look at our:

Value Villas with Private Pools in Aquitaine - to be eligible for this 'value badge' the villa must be available for less than 2000 GBP per week in the peak season.
And remember! France is still the cheapest short-haul destination to get to. With air passenger duty rising, families will always get better value by taking their own car to France via the ferry or chunnel, compared to the cost of flights plus hire car.
