How does the French gite rating system work?

How does the French gite rating system work?

When you’re on holiday in France, you may have noticed that some gites (self-catering accommodation) or bed & breakfasts have ears of wheat by their name. These are awarded by the official Gites de France organisation and denote the level of comfort of an establishment – just like the star rating system for hotels. The criteria for classification include location – ease of access, setting, gardens, outside amenities or the state of the building exterior, the interior – kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, decor (the state of the carpets and curtains, etc), the facilities available and the quality of service. When all these aspects meet the standards of the gite classification system, you’re guaranteed a high-quality, comfortable stay.
