Best Gite Businesses for Sale in France - 2019

A selection of the best houses with gites to buy in France in 2019

French property with gites is sought after

Since 1951, when the first gite was established by Senator Emile Aubert, French gites have come a long way from their rustic roots. Gite holidays are now popular with holidaymakers from all walks of life. As a result, properties in France with a gite or gites attached are highly sought after by buyers from overseas. A gite can provide that extra income that makes life comfortable, and France has plenty for sale at surprisingly reasonable prices.

French properties for sale with gites are cheap in 2019

2019 is a good time to buy in France, as prices are realistically set and many properties are being reduced in price to encourage new buyers. Owning a French property with gites attached really doesn't have to be expensive. So without huge investment you can enjoy a very useful income from your property.

Gites for sale - finding the best

The general rule of thumb when looking for your French property with gites is to choose somewhere that you would like to go on holiday. A place which is surrounded by beautiful countryside is always a winner.

Gites with pools and lakes

Properties with pools, like several of our properties highlighted below, are more popular than those without. A lake is also a great attraction for holiday makers. (French Properties with Lakes.)

French gites in good locations are successful

Other features that make gites successful include locations with ease of access to the sea, and within a short drive of airports that offer budget airline flights from the UK (The Best Property Near Ryanair Airports in France).

Gite business - how to make it thrive

Running gites can be a competitive business, so you need to make sure your gites offer holidaymakers everything they are looking for. The personal touch is important, and it's good to be on hand to offer friendly assistance to your guests. That's why we've chosen properties with gites close to the main residence, in keeping with the traditional idea of a gite being a small lodging in the grounds of a farmhouse.

Offer activities year round

The letting window can also be quite short, just six to ten weeks of summer in most areas (Letting property in France). So offering extra attractions to keep bookings coming in outside the main season is another factor.

Gites in France - should you buy an established business?

Buying an established gites complex with a ready made business gives you an instant income, but these properties are often more expensive. However, it brings peace of mind and much of the hard work has been done for you. Buying a gites complex with bookings already in for the season ahead is a great start to your new life as a gite owner. (Buying a Business in France.)

French property with gite potential

The other option is to find a property with the potential to create gites and to do the work yourself. If you choose this option, it may be possible to get a grant as the French Tourist Board are keen to encourage projects that lead to an increase in holidaymakers coming to France. To find out if your project may be eligible for a grant you can ask Gites de France, the Conseil Régionale or Départmentale. Grants can be as much as 40% of your renovation costs, so it's definitely worth asking. (Property grants available in France.)

French property with gites for sale - the best on offer

Whether you decide to renovate a property to create new gites or to buy an existing gite business, we've taken the hard work out of finding the right property, with our selection of the best. Have a look through and find your French property with gites in 2019.
