Gîtes Arcachon are fully-furnished French holiday homes equipped for self-catering and available for rent. To be called a ‘gîte’, the French owner must live nearby to provide help and assistance to guests. Many gîte owners choose to handle their own rentals. Gîtes are generally old farmworkers' cottages or converted outbuildings and barns near the owners' main house.
Gîtes Arcachon attract investment and tourism and are actively supported by the tourist board and planning authorities. Additionally, all gîte owners are required to ensure that their gîtes are safe and comply with the necessary rules, regulations and insurance requirements.
For example, Gîtes Arcachon offers high season weekly rates of 850 euros for a 2 room gîte comprising lounge/bedroom, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with indoor heated swimming pool. The weekly rate drops to 350 euros during the winter.
