The cost of B and B in France - 2018

 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." And many owners have held their prices for the past few years, and in some cases even reduced them.

     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 below, the market rates for hotels in their area; but better value for money.
    The cost of B&B accommodation will vary from region to region, and according to basic principles of supply and demand.  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 2018 - 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 80 € per night for two people in 2018.
   More sophisticated B&Bs -  those that offer something more than just a room and a comfy bed - may well charge up to 110 € a night for a double room and in most cases the price will be justified. Beyond 110 € 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 85 € per night for a double room, and offers excellent value compared to hotel accommodation of similar quality. 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 about �22 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'h�te", 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.
