Most of the tourists chooses to stay in cottages as their accommodations for their visit instead of staying in a luxurious hotels of the country.
The cottages for this kind of accommodation are referred as gite rentals by the French people; in their translation, it is referred as shelter.
Fit for a weekend rental, gites also offers self catering rental accommodation.

Some gite owners are providing dishwashers and washing machines to give more comfort to the tourists as they will be able to feel at home and even enjoy gite rentals.
There are many gite owners that do not provide hand and bath towels and even bed sheets thus, double checking everything with the gite owners is important before everything is a little too late.
