Hotels in France are as varied as the terrain itself; city boutiques, seaside villages, mountain cabins, country estates and French Alps chalets to name just a few.
Affordable hotel rooms in France are not commonplace but that’s not to say you won’t find a good deal. When looking for cheap hotels in France it is best to start by looking at hostel accommodations. Hostels can be found in all of the major cities throughout France as well as in many of the rural areas, both in-land and coastal. If you are unfamiliar with hostels you should know that they offer dormitory style accommodations with shared bathroom facilities. Some hostels do offer private rooms with en suite facilities, but these rooms are typically limited and will need to be booked in advance.
Not sure a hostel is right for you? Why not try one of the most popular lodging styles in France: houses/villas/apartments or a Gîte. Both types of rental can be found all throughout France, in cities, rural areas and throughout many of the coastal towns.
Houses, villas and apartments can be rented for as little as weekend or as long as a month. Each property is truly unique and will come fully furnished, outfitted with necessary utensils and dishes and with a wide variety of amenities that may include a pool, hot tub or large outdoor terrace. Houses, villas and apartments range from 3 star accommodations to ultra-luxurious estate-like properties, like something you would see in a movie or magazine.
A Gîte (pronounced zheet) is a private property that can be rented for a week (usually Saturday to Saturday) or a short duration during certain times of the year. They are similar to a house or villa with the main difference being the owners of the gîte usually live on-site or nearby. The owners are available to provide you with a warm welcome and local tourist information, give you an overview of the property and its facilities and show you a lesson in the French way of life.
