If you do not have
your own website, Gitelink can create and host a mini-site (four pages) for you. Ask for details
which started life back in 1999 - is a directory that produces results.
Which is why we are now in our twentieth year. Results are certainly
what you are looking for, if you are wanting
effective advertising for your gite. Don't take it from us,
it from people who already advertise their gites or B&B on

We've just taken a four-week booking, the longest we've
ever taken, and the guest has confirmed that he found our site on
Gitelink. And it's not a peak season booking, but for weeks that are
harder to let.

has been an effective way for us to increase our website traffic over
many years, and the only reason we don’t want to renew is that we’re
quitting the business.

really worth the money: they come from a site highly focused on the
subject, unlike ..... where you can end up being displayed in the
most irrelevant places

Gitelink probably has as high an average clickthrough rate as
other major gites website, and higher than most. And while this cannot
of course be verified across the board, it is certainly the experience
reported by of many of our advertisers.
Why is this?
Basically, it's because
both highly visible on the Internet, and a small directory. And when it
comes to gites and b&b directories, small is beautiful, just as
long as the site gets the traffic.
To give an example, here are annual "top four" annual referrer stats
by two satisfied Gitelink customers, one in the north of France and one
in the south:
2. A regional directory
3. A leading national gites directory
4. A second regional site
Best for quality
1. A French gites directory
3. Another French directory
4. A UK directory
Unlike most gites directories, Gitelink sets
standards (see right-hand column), and we refuse up to a quarter of all
