Things to do on a September holiday
September is the perfect time to go on a summer holiday away from the crowds while also taking advantage of great rates. Yes, while everyone else is going back to school and the office, you're heading off!
September holidays by the sea
Beaches along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts await your visit. The water temperature is still pleasant at this time of the year and the days will be sunny. The difference? You'll have plenty of room to spread your towel on the sand! For a stay that combines turquoise water and postcard landscapes, head for Corsica. Visit the island's coastal towns, head up to the inland villages, hike in the Corsican scrub and lounge on your towel on a day on the boat.
How about a trip to Brittany? This region of France is becoming more and more popular and we understand why! The beaches of Finistère and Morbihan do not resemble those of the rest of the country and the local architecture gives charm to all the villages you go through along the way. The icing on the cake: you will enjoy trying local culinary specialities such as galettes and Kouign Amann.
Recharge your batteries on a September holiday in the mountains
The mountains are beautiful at all times of the year. On your holiday in September, you will get to see the leaves and vegetation change from the green of summer to the yellow-orange of autumn. You can of course plan hikes on the many marked trails nearby, but that's just for starters! Mountain biking, white water sports, climbing, paragliding and many more activities are also on offer.
All that's have to decide is whether you are Team Alps or Team Pyrenees. Either way, you will enjoy a great September holiday experience!
Unwind on a countryside holiday in September
Need a break from the rat race? The countryside is ideal for a break in nature, away from the daily hustle and bustle. In September the temperatures might drop slightly, but the sun hangs around. France's most beautiful destinations at this time of year include:
- Provence and the region's Most Beautiful Villages of France, surrounded by lavender fields
- The Basque hinterland with its white houses with coloured beams from which pepper garlands are hung out
- Corrèze and the Millevaches plateau, deep in the heart of the nature
- The Gorges of Ardèche, including the Chauvet-Pont d'Arc Cave
- The Massif Central and the Chaîne des Puys (a range with more than 80 volcanoes)
If you are looking for accommodation in the département of Puy-de-Dôme, stay at Chalets de la Chazotte in Miremont, near the Confolant water sports centre. They are quaint charming cottages with a view over the lake.
All you have to do is watch the clock tick down till your September holiday!
