"Packing List" France Packing List Tip by ATLC

France What to Pack: 83 reviews and 45 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Study Abroad

Miscellaneous: This tip should actually be under Accomodations but I want it to show up on my main page of France.
Literally thousands of B&B and cottages can be rented through <b>http://www.gites-de-france.fr/eng/index.htm</b> (Gîtes de France).
I've done this at least 20 times. Sometimes just B&B on farms, or village houses or town houses. Sometimes a cottage for a month. In every price range and comfort. The fun is that they are all privately owned and if you want you can really be immmersed in the French way of life.
So for accomodation I'd recommend Chambre d'hôte (B&B) and Gîtes de France any time.
