Britain's best B&B guide to France, aimed at independent travellers seeking a truly special place to stay. Travelling the length and breadth of the country, our French team has selected over 800 B&Bs, including our Award Winners. Fall in love with a place and stay longer, change your route and stop off somewhere new - there's great flexibility here.
An intriguing range of bed and breakfasts is included: ski chalets, chateaux, farmhouses, treehouses, pieds-a-terre in lovely old cities and studio apartments in tiny mountain hamlets. We meet a wide variety of owners too, from those running authentic old-style 'chambres d'hotes' to creative young couples opening eco-chic B&Bs. What they have in common is their devotion to making you feel special.
They can also tell you about gastronomic breaks and wine tours, painting, cookery and language courses, and give you the low down on all the best places.
