Summer is the time of year when traveling is the most expensive: this is explained by the fact that millions of people are on vacation at the same time, and often go to similar places.

Where to go in France this summer for cheap?
Stay away from water
In summer, the first reflex which makes it possible not to pay too much on vacation is to avoid destinations linked to swimming.
Forget the coasts, the sea, the ocean… Yes, it hurts a bit, but these places are very expensive in summer, and the only argument for that is often the beach.
Visit major cities
Strasbourg, Lyon, Nancy, Lille or even Paris are pleasant cities to visit in summer.
Not only are the prices not higher than during the rest of the year, but in addition their inhabitants are elsewhere: you therefore benefit from all the calm necessary for visiting, and the accommodation prices are affordable.
The right plan!
Enjoy the campaign
If you like nature, the forest and the countryside in general, you can opt for a rental in a rural area.
It is possible to rent a house or book a bed and breakfast at a low price, including in summer, in very beautiful regions of France.
Creuse, Dordogne, Indre-et-Loire and even L'Orne are among the top destinations for going green without breaking the bank.
