Lodging options in France

Accommodations in France, from hotels & B&Bs to rental villas and agriturism farms

There are many types of places to spend the night in France. Hotels are fine, but look beyond hotels—to B&Bs, or rental gîtes, farm stays or apartments or villas—and you can usually save money while having a more interesting stay at the same time.

There are some other, less conventional options—not specific to France—covered in this site's general "Alternative Accommodations" section, including couchsurfing, historic hotels, hospitality networks and Servas, mountain huts, RVing (renting a campervan), house sitting, house swapping, and university dorms.
