A British start-up firm, which aims to bridge the gap between the perfect designer boutique vacation and traditional family holidays, has added three new properties to its portfolio.

The properties come, not only with architectural design and detailed uber-modern interiors that wouldn’t look out of place in a high end glossy, they contain everything a family needs, from sterilisers and baby monitors to toys and games, providing practicality as well as uplifting style.

French Loaf was founded by Cambridge-based design obsessive and mother-of-two Emma Tumelty, and concentrates on delivering beautiful, characterful and practical self-catering villas in the gorgeous Lot and Dordogne regions of France.

Emma Said: “Everyone is so busy with work, school, and extracurricular activities which means there’s less time for families to spend together. Holidays are an incredibly important time, and we aim to think of everything so guests can relax and enjoy their holiday as a family, without worrying."

“We want to create a brand so that when people think French Loaf, they know to expect design perfection, quality and great service. We’ve done detailed research designed to take the guess work out of finding the perfect holiday destination."

“All our homes are set in or near lovely French towns with a choice of gourmet restaurants and fresh bread, local cheese, produce and wine from typical independent outlets or markets. They are also close to adventure – a pool, the countryside, the sea and the French way of life.”

With added extras such as English speaking babysitters and pre-ordered home-made meals, cooked by a local chef, French loaf provides stress free family friendly holidays in wonderful, inspiring surroundings.

Rental rates start from £950 per villa per week
With currently four properties available to book but more being planned and developed for the near future, each one differs in size and location and has its own unique style.

About French Loaf

French Loaf began life many years ago when Emma’s parents fell in love with the Lot region and made it their home. Today, their legacy is a holiday home tailor-made for families looking to soak up the delights of the region while keeping their children entertained and safe.

Emma and her family, experienced this escape at first hand, and it became her goal to preserve it so she set about creating a small portfolio of holiday homes selected for their beauty and character, across the Lot and Dordogne regions, so that many more families can easily find their hand-picked destinations set in gorgeous French towns.
