Logis de France – traditional accommodation in France / -

- -

Logis de France and Auberge de Ferme are family run establishments which offer traditional French accommodation and food at reasonable prices. If you want real French ambience you will be well served staying in any of the many Logis de France dotted about the French countryside, of which there are about 2,622 (2011) All are classified with one to three fireplace symbols, indicating the level of comfort. There is a new, fourth classification; Logis d'Exception.

There are 34 Logis in Pas de Calais, and 19 in NORD. This is a slight decline on previous years.

Using the Logis de France use to be the way travellers enjoyed their holidays and short breaks. Over the years a combination of motorways, budget hotel chains (cheaper) and very old attitudes regarding making a booking, has seen a decline in their use. However, things are changing. There is a new booking system which is easy to use (2011). Whilst modern hotel chains may be cheap and convenient they lack the character of a Logis de France hotel. If you want to get a bit more from your holiday in France, Logis de France are highly recommended.

Main Logis de France hotel groupings; Gites d'étape – hostel style Accommodation, Chambres d'hôte – Bed and Breakfast, Gites de France – Officially sponsored holiday cottages, Logis de France – Government sponsored character hotels.

As always, Logis de France hotels offer very good value for money. Average prices range from £35 to £48 (£51 to £71) for accommodation and from £12 to £25 (£17 to £36) for set menus. Half-board rates range from £36 to around £44 (£53 to around £65) per person.

From 2006 onwards, Logis de France will be using a brand-new, comprehensive classification checklist, covering some 268 quality criteria. The checklist has been drawn up taking full account of needs and expectations expressed by guests, and enables hotels to be classified with 1, 2 or 3 fireplace symbols.

This checklist covers a wide range of elements, such as the comfort of the hotel and food and service quality, but also a number of new sections such as breakfast quality and the level of attention paid to environmental issues by the hotel.
