We recommend  a small selection of places to stay in France including

  • Gîtes – the French term for self-catering, mainly rural accommodation – can be a cottage/house/flat or apartment.
  • Chambres d’Hôte – another french term for Bed and Breakfast (B&B) usually in the owner’s house – usually with breakfast and sometimes an evening meal (buy prior arrangement) – real french home cooking!
  • hotel3starsHotels – sometimes called Relais or Auberge – with their own French star classification system which is being brought up to date. Generally, the more stars – the more facilities and the higher the room rate!
