Gite France

There isn't a more traditional and authentic holiday home in France than a gite. Experience rural France as it is in one of our gites in nature, and see the country in a new perspective.

Enjoy a relaxing and calm holiday in the peaceful fields, visit the mountains if you want adventure, or stay by the sea and find yourself amazed by the stunning landscapes. 

The gite

“Gite” is the word that the French use to describe any furnished house. Typically, gites are houses in the countryside, which is also what you’ll see on our page. And almost half of all land in France is in the countryside, making it a perfect destination for a rural holiday. You have endless possibilities to choose your dream holiday home. If you want to have breakfast every morning during your stay, rent a b&b gite. Having your landlord close to you is a wonderful way to learn more about the culture and traditions in France. He can also help you out with the best tips on what to visit in the region. We’ve designed different themes in nature, so if you’re planning water sports, rent a gite near water. With its navigable waterways, Alzase is one of the regions that you can discover just by boat. The best option for hiking and winter sports is the mountain areas. If you’ve already visited the French Alpine regions like Auvergne, and the Pyrenees in Midi-Pyrenees, go to the less-known mountain ranges. The Massif Central, Jura, and Vosges are just as beautiful. A hiking trip off the beaten path is something you can do, if you’re planning an active trip. To visit the Vosges massif go to the colorful Lorraine or Franche-Comté and its pure nature. There you’ll also find forests, verdant meadows, spring and mineral waters. 

Destinations

With it’s vast countryside, there are many regions to visit in France. For a more cultural trip, visit Aquitaine and discover its charming villages. The famous Dordogne that is part of the region is perfect for a hiking trip. Take a hike to the rolling hills and valleys, that uncover exceptional landscapes and wildlife. More picturesque villages are to be found in Pays de la Loire, a region with many jaw-dropping vistas from the coastline. If you want to find that balance between a vast countryside and stunning coastline, but you’re travelling to Northern France, go to Nord-pas-de-Calais
