Oh, how we love going on vacation at All Saints’! Indian summer, autumn colors and the first break after summer: can you see yourself there already? Not at all surprising. On the contrary!

And 50% are thinking about it, without any specific plan.

There are several reasons for this appeal: the desire to take one last dip in the sun before winter, cheaper rates than in summer, the fact that it’s less crowded… Abritel confirms this. « In October, average rental prices can drop by 30 to 40% in many All Saints’ Day destinations in France. This is a real change compared to August, even in popular regions such as the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts ». So, which destination will you choose for your All Saints’ Day vacations in 2022?

For ideal All Saints’ Day destinations, look no further than France’s ocean beaches and the English Channel coast. Autumnal colors, like in a romantic painting, serve as a backdrop to a windy coastal landscape. Waves gently lap the shore in a sunny atmosphere.

Yes, keep in mind that the West of France, and in particular the Breton coastline, enjoys its Indian summer every year. Ideal for invigorating strolls with your tribe, the beaches of the West and the English Channel are wide and large enough to avoid crowding. In autumn, the dogs are let loose and the children run around breathlessly. Young and old alike enjoy walking with energy and pleasure. Sports activities are numerous and varied, and cater for everyone: surfing, kitesurfing, sailing, sand yachting, fat-biking, running or walking, mountain biking, longe-côte

As you leave the beach, you’ll appreciate the in-between-seasons atmosphere that pervades the streets of ports and seaside towns. The seagulls are still making their greedy cries, the fishing trawlers are coming and going, the restaurateurs are relaxed… All the worries of the new school year are swept away with a wave of the hand, just by enjoying the sea breeze.

The atmosphere of the Atlantic coast in the off-season? It’s one of our favorites, and we don’t want to hide it… So don’t wait any longer to take advantage of Abritel’s great autumn offers. You could also experience the Atlantic in the off-season, like the locals looking for some peace and quiet after the summer.

Did someone tell you that it’s always sunny in the Mediterranean? Well, we won’t keep you waiting any longer: it’s quite true! Especially between April and November, it’s a real treat. The beach is deserted by tourists and the water remains at an affordable temperature. Especially in autumn, when the passage of summer means you can still enjoy the sea, which has been warming up all summer long.

If you don’t like the compact crowds of the summer vacations, this period will reconcile you with the beaches of the South. Imagine the largest seaside resorts devoid of deckchairs. Imagine a clear horizon, with no beach umbrella to spoil your view. Imagine your towel resting on sand or pebbles, more than fifty meters from your nearest neighbor. Imagine your kitesurf carried by the offshore winds to glide along the water’s edge.

Do you like these images? It’s up to you to experience all this for real. What’s more, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful stone villages inland nearby. Like the beaches, they are less crowded than in summer. You’ll feel the peace and quiet of the narrow streets, where time seems to stand still. And it’s a shame you can’t hear the cicadas that have deserted the area.

The South can also be appreciated for its autumnal atmosphere. That’s when the olives are at their biggest on the trees, ready to be picked. So book your All Saints’ Day vacation on the beaches of the Mediterranean without delay. Take advantage of Abritel’s offers to find your Mediterranean sun destination for All Saints’ Day 2022.

We sometimes tend to forget that when we want to go on vacation in France, we can also go to the West Indies or the Indian Ocean. Martinique, Guadeloupe, Réunion… Yes, by the time the October drear haunts metropolitan France, you’re probably dreaming of cocktails, coconut palms and warm seas. Nostalgic for summer?

Autumn in the French overseas departments is a special time of year, a time when you can really unwind. The climate is still mild. In the Antilles, rain sometimes appears furtively to refresh beachgoers. You dive into the sea to cool off, waiting for the drops to fade.
