The Gitelink directory lists only selected self-catering holiday cottages, villas and B&Bs that come up to the Gitelink quality standards. Each site is the individual responsibility of the owner of the property, and contains a detailed and illustrated presentation of the gite and - in many cases - of the area in which it is situated. 

     The Gitelink France directory - a showcase for affordable privately owned holiday accommodation in rural France. Each gite, villa or b&b is presented in detail on its own individual website, with photos, regional information and prices.
   L'Annuaire Gitelink France présente des liens vers des gites et locations de vacances sélectionnés.  L'exactitude des informations données sur les sites web des gites, est de l'entière responsabilité des propriétaires des gîtes concernés.
