What is a 'gîte'?

The word 'gîte' refers to a furnished, self-catering holiday house that is let to tourists over short periods. It can be a cottage, villa, chalet or apartment.


Originally known as 'gîte rural' the concept has spread from this rather narrow definition to encompass more or less any furnished, short-let property in the countryside, at the seaside or even in big towns.


Still relatively ignored by French law, a gîte can be set up anywhere in France as long as two important declarations are made: firstly to the Mairie of the commune where the gîte is situated and secondly to the Recette Fiscale of the owner. In other words, as long as the authorities know what you're doing and as long as you're paying taxes on your earnings ... everyone is happy.

What is a 'chambre d'hôte'?

This is a bed & breakfast establishment. Technically it involves home-owners welcoming tourists into their own home, putting a bedroom at their disposal and giving them breakfast in the morning. The maximum number of bedrooms permitted is five, after which the establishment is reclassified as a hotel.


However, there is a fine line between 'chambres d'hôtes' and 'gite d'étape' which could be described as a hostel. Even then, it is customary for hostels of this type (usually in mountainous regions or on national footpaths - GR) to stick to the 5 bedroom rule although one of those rooms might be a dormitory sleeping a dozen people.
