More about Gites in France
Originally, Gites were simply shelters that were placed in rural or village locations. Today, these types of accommodation are often referred to as Gites because they are located in separate wings or converted outbuildings. While they may be comfortable, they are also very different from traditional homes.
Gites are made in France and can be found in many regions. They are usually found by the sea or in the countryside and can be found across France, although there tends to be a high number in the north and west of France.
Gites are often in close proximity to a town or village, and are great for those wanting to experience French living in a rural setting. There are plenty of self-catering options available, and if you are looking for something a little different, then a Gite is the place for you.
Most Gites have fully-equipped kitchens, en-suite bathrooms, satellite TV, DVD player, Internet Access and plenty of other extras. Some owners also offer extras such as linen as standard, but others provide extras such as Welcome packs and even more.
Most Gites have plenty of space for guests to play and relax in the garden, swimming pool or barbecue area.
As most of Gites properties offer self-catering accommodation, it is a great option for families wanting a comfortable stay. With large swimming pools and high chairs, it is also a great option for extended families.
Gites are a great choice for groups of friends or families, they are often located on a Farm or an Estate and can be flexible enough to accommodate a variety of people.
