France has a fantastic coastline, from the rugged shores of Brittany and the famous Normandy D-day landing beaches to the Atlantic coast so beloved by surfers, and the sun-drenched Mediterranean beaches. Listed here are those holiday properties that are within reasonable walking distance to the sea and the beach. As everyone's definition of reasonable walking distance is likely to vary, be sure to check with the beach holiday property owner before you book. Holiday accommodation located near the sea gives you - and your family - the flexibility to come and go to the beach as you wish during the day, be that to play, swim, fish or surf. Some of the vacation properties overlook the sea and the beach. What better than to open the curtains in the morning and take in the sea view, or watch the sun set over the sea whilst enjoying an aperitif and a bite to eat.
