What is a gîte?
The word “gîte” is French. It is a holiday home in France that one can rent for self-catering holiday.
Gîtes are fully furnished and equipped so guests can prepare their own meals, sleep there and use the facilities (swimming pool, swings, garden furniture and BBQ, etc).
Some gîtes are basic, others have all the modern cons (DVD players, dishwashers, etc).
Choose your gîte according to your requirements! Near the coast, near Dinan in Brittany, in the Alps for some skiing holiday, etc.
Compare facilities (Sky TV, internet connection, pool, etc).
Here are a couple of gîtes in Brittany I can recommend.
Gîtes with swimming pool.
Gîte with spacious enclosed garden catered for families
