Bed and Breakfast France – Chambre d'hôte and Self Catering Accommodation

Stay in a family home in France by doing bed and breakfast or try self catering.

Private Accommodation often lets you enjoy the true flavour of the region in which you are staying. Chambre d'hte or "Chambres chez l'habitant" (B and B's) – this normally means private houses with fewer than 6 bedrooms, most operating under the Gites de France label. Gites are self catering holiday homes.

Where the establishments are specifically listed as "Chambres d'hôtes" we have listed them separately.

superbreak – From Superbreak, Eurostar short breaks. Great value Eurostar Breaks are the ideal way to explore some of the best European city break destinations including Paris, Disneyland Paris, Lille, Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp and Ostend.
