Gite holidays in the peaceful tranquility of rural France
Established in 1999, Gitelink lists just a small selection of quality holiday rentals in France, with most properties bookable directly with the owners. Quality does not have to mean expensive, and there are gites for all budgets. Almost all holiday cottages on Gitelink are in secluded rural locations; most are fully self-contained, offering a safe environment without the risks of hotels or tourist resorts. Almost all have gardens or outside patios and many have pools... Those that don't have pools are generally cheaper, and may have swimming nearby.

Tips on booking gites in France

While many gites are quickly booked up in the peak summer months of July and August, there are plenty of off-peak bargains to be had even for last minute bookings in spring and early summer – May and June – and in late summer and Autumn. September is a great month for holidaying in France, with the weather still generally warm, but no more crowds.

Gite prices: book directly, book wisely, and avoid rental agency fees.

  • Gite prices can vary enormously from region to region, even from village to village, and by season; but the Gitelink directory does not knowingly list gites that are overpriced . 
  • In addition, owners who take bookings directly can offer better rates, as they avoid the big fees  charged by some of the major holiday rental sites, which can now add more than 20% to the cost of a booking. With Gitelink, book either directly with owners, or book through which does not charge any extra booking fees on top of the rental price.
  • Big savings on gite rental prices can be made by choosing weeks in early summer or early autumn. Weekly gite rental rates in July and August for gites in this directory vary from less than € 500 a week to a few large gites that charge over € 1500 a week in high season - and are much cheaper off-season.
  • Gite rental charges depend on location, size, facilities, and the quality of the amenities. Gites can be, and usually are, considerably cheaper outside the peak summer months, and often offer exceptionally good value for money – far cheaper than equivalent accommodation in hotels.
