Recommendations for Holiday Home Insurance

Hi

We are about to purchase a holiday home in France and I would like to find a reputable (France based) Assurance company who will be able to provide house and contents insurance for our intended use which will be:

(1) partly to be used for personal family holidays
(2) partly to be used as a holiday let for others
(3) there will be periods of the year when the house will be unoccupied

Any advice on a suitable company/type of policy would be much appreciated

Thanks
