    Hi could anyone tell me when the French have their holidays in August is it for 2 weeks or the full month, just trying to find the dates so that I can book our ferry to France.

    Cheers,
    John.

    The fun tends to start on Bastille day, 14th July and goes on for another month. We have tended to depart France straight after the fireworks. The French school holidays commence on 2nd July this year ending on 2nd September.

    Enjoy France.

    Thierry je ne pense pas qu'il s'agissait du temps de congés que prennent les français mais plus des dates officielles de congés scolaires sur le territoire français :winky:
