France is probably most visited country in Europe. Capital - Paris attracts millions of tourist each year. It is known as the city of love and each year on 14 of February many couples are heading towards Paris to celebrate their love. Beautiful summer and winter holidays resorts, vineyards with well-known all around the world French restaurants. . Loire Valley -the Loire Valley is also affectionately known as the garden of France, Mont Saint-Michel - rocky, peaked island which is connected by a causeway to northwest France. Cote d'Azur -otherwise known as the French Riviera -expensive and over-developed to some, with its miles of gorgeous coastline and azure waters it's still one of the most beautiful places in France. Giverny - riverside rural paradise located on the borders of Normandy which is most prominent for being the homeland of impressionism. Versailles - is famous for its chateau - the grand and over-elaborate Palace of Versailles which once accommodated the kings of France, (including the ill-fated Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette). Annecy, The Alps - The centre is built around a 14th century Chateau and the entire town is sprinkled with small canals which is why some inhabitants refer to it as the 'Venice of Savoie.' With its canals and backdrop of snowy mountains, Annecy is easily one of the most photogenic towns in France. It is a heaven for travellers who like taking pictures. Champagne-Ardenne -The birthplace of champagne. Strasbourg - Famous for its riverfront half-timbered houses, beautiful gothic cathedral and fondness for flowers. Bordeaux -best known for its international wine production. The Gorges du Verdon - Europe's version of the Grand Canyon.
We listed below short description of accommodation types in France.
Apartments - Apartment rentals normally require at least a week stay, and in Paris, apartments are located and leased by the district where it is located. The number of rooms in an apartment are call 'pieces', this does not include the bathroom, but rather the main area, kitchen and bedrooms. So wherever you decide to rent or lease, be sure that you have these amenities close at hand.
Bed and Breakfast - they can be called a gite, chambre d'hote, maison d'hote, manoir or even a cottage as normally referred to by the British. All in all they are primarily individual's private homes, where the let out rooms for the night or a few days stay. Some are self-serving with kitchens and basic amenities and appliances for cooking or laundry. The size and the price of these lodgings are very much varied due to the amenities included.
Hostelleries - don't get confused with HOSTELS, they are not the same thing. Hostelleries can be an accommodation, and it may or may not have a restaurant, and I guess you could say that this type lodging is somewhere between a motel and a hostel.
Hostels - are hostels. If you are looking for cheap hostel better search youth hostel in Hotelable directory, Google or other online travel portals, so you can get better price.
Hotels in France are rated by stars by government regulation. The French government hotel rating system is by the number of stars. There are ratings from one star through five stars. One start rating is for hotels with basic amenities and the five stars being the most luxurious. Star rating system is similar to one used by many international hotels.
Residence Hotels / Apart Hotels are apartments, condos or hotels designed for long term stays of more than two weeks. Residence Hotels are fully furnished to the extent that they normally will have complete kitchen (dishes, cooking pots, coffee maker, toasters, microwave ovens) etc., you'll just have to shop for the groceries if you want to cook in. Most resident or apart hotels have ratings of at least three to four star ratings, and they are not the same type accommodations as that of a four star hotel, when it comes to interiors, furnishings and amenities. They are however, much more reasonably priced, normally quite comfortable and have fully equipped kitchens, so you can enjoy French cuisine. We would recommend you to go to a French restaurant in case you'd like to taste proper French delicatessen.
