Normally we don’t do holidays during the summer since we have guests in our holiday home. With new ones arriving every Saturday. But this summer we had guests staying for 3 weeks to enjoy the house and giving us the opportunity to go to France for a couple of days where friends of us recently bought a holiday home in the Dordogne.
As usual we traveled light without any planning so we packed a suitcase got our passports and bankcards, put the dogs in the car and left Hungary behind. In France we would stay at the house of our friends. But we also wanted to stay a week with just the two of us in a holiday home somewhere on a nice location in southern France on the Cote d’Azur, in the Auvergne or in the Ardèche. We usually use AirBnb for one night stays but for longer stays I prefer holiday home sites since they’re cheaper.
A friend of ours pointed us to www.hellolodge.com which combines the holiday homes of a couple of the larger holiday homes sites in Europe and where you can choose from over a 100.000 homes. It also has handy search features like being able to search for last minutes and, important for us, pet friendly holiday homes.
We found a nice holiday home and had a lovely week.
