Autumn can be one of the best times to visit France. The lower temperatures can be very pleasant, making it possible to get plenty of sunshine without the scorching heat. The high season for tourism ends when September arrives, so you can have a beach almost to yourself. Many outdoor sports, such as hiking and cycling, are more pleasant on a crisp autumn day than under a hot sun.
And gîtes offer bargain rates, with excellent value to be found. It's even better if you can find a special offer for a fall vacation. Take a look at Gite.com's Special Offers now to find an autumn break. If you've only visited France in summer, you'll find a new range of delights in autumn. And if you've never been, now's the time to book.
