    What is a "gîte"..??

    A gîte (masculine gender, French pronunciation: [ʒit]) is a French holiday home that is available for rent. Gîtes are usually fully furnished and equipped for self-catering.

    A house where you can make yourself at home…
    A holiday home that can be enjoyed by family or friends all year round. A gîte is a private property that can be rented for a week (usually from Saturday to Saturday), a weekend or a short stay at certain times of year.

    Each gîte has reception rooms, bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom and is well equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

    •The location, in the country, the mountains or by the sea, is always superb and boasts peace and quiet and beautiful outside spaces.
    •Owners’ welcomes have been fine-tuned and an important feature of a gîte holiday is the relationship between the owner of the property and the holiday-maker. Openness, willingness and generosity are owners’ watchwords to make your stay both interesting and exciting.
    •The gîtes’ architecture is as varied as the many activities available throughout the different regions and wherever you stay, you’ll find plenty of nature to see and plenty of things to do.
    The range of gîtes available is enormous, ranging from 2-person to 10-person accommodation. Some owners have more than one gîte allowing for families to go on holiday to the same area together.
