The cost of B and B in France - 2016

 B and B in France - a generally affordable alternative

     To the question "How much does b&b cost in France?" the answer is quite possibly "Not as much as you thought."
     Bed and Breakfast accommodation comes in many forms; and prices vary according to season, location and quality. The Gitelink  BandB-in-France directory is essentially made up of friendly B and Bs offering good value for money. 
     Good value B&Bs are not necessarily cheap B&Bs.  B&Bs are businesses, not charities, and for many owners they are a vital source of income. Proprietors generally therefore tend to offer accommodation at, or slightly below, the market rates for hotels in their area; but since these market rates can vary, so can the cost of B&B accommodation.
    B&B's in smart Alpine ski resorts or up-market locations on the French Riviera may actually charge more than hotels, as they are offering a rare luxury product - the privacy and space of a private residence in a location where most other guests are packed into hotels. But in most places, B&B accommodation is cheaper than hotel accommodation for a similar standard of quality and service; and there are also plenty of B&Bs offering really good service and quality for the price of a room in a basic budget hotel.

B&B rates in 2016 - France

Unlike hotels which quote a price for a room, B&Bs usually quote different prices per room according to the number of guests sharing. A commonly charged rate is 50 €uros per night for a double room for two people – which is cheaper than most budget hotels, once you add in the cost of breakfast which is not included in hotel room rates. You may even get a swimming pool for the price!  In most ordinary B&Bs, expect therefore to pay between 45 € and 70 € per night for two people in 2015.
   More sophisticated B&Bs -  those that offer something more than just a room and a comfy bed - may well charge up to 100 € a night for a double room and in most cases the price will be justified. Beyond 100 € a night for a double room, the price has to be justified by the location and/or the amenities offered, notably fully en-suite accommodation and extras such as a heated pool or even a sauna.

   Most of the bed and breakfast accommodation in the Gitelink / BandB-in-France directory comes in at between 50 € and 80 € per night for a double room, and offers excellent value compared to hotel accommodation. Some B&Bs are more expensive, specially in high season; but the price is justified; a few even charge less.
   For British travellers, 50 € per night for a double room works out as the equivalent of under £20 per person per night – which is considerably cheaper than the average for B&B in the UK.
   Many French B&Bs also offer the option of "table d'hôte", in other words an evening meal too; but this normally has to bef booked in advance.  B&B's that do not offer evening meals normally direct their guests to a nearby restaurant
   It is important to remember, when comparing B&B rates and hotel rates in France, that B&Bs virtually always include breakfast in their prices, most hotels do not.
