Speaking in London, President Hollande said authorities do not know the motives behind the killings - but that France stands in solidarity with the people of Britain.
A four-year-old girl survived the attack by hiding beneath her mother's corpse - and was not found until eight hours after police arrived at the crime scene.
Her older sister, who suffered serious head injuries, has been placed in an induced coma ahead of surgery.
The British ambassador to France, Sir Peter Ricketts, said that UK police may assist with the inquiry:
"I can't yet say exactly who will come all I can say is that any assistance or help that the French police require we will give".
