Many enquiries for the guest house are persons requesting a gite, not knowing well what this French word exactly consists in.

A gite is a self catering accomodation, it may be a flat, a house or a cottage. Usually this kind of holiday rental is self catering and only proposes services like cleaning and bed sheets. Most of the time in France it is a one week rental from Saturday to Saturday (sometimes it is possible to book for the week end only)

A Bed and Breakfast or Guest House is an overnight accomodation with breakfast provided.  Some B&B even propose meals in the evening like a boarding house, most of these are situated in tiny villages. In French a guest house is called ‘maison d’hôtes’ or by extension ‘chambre d’hôte’. If you look for an accomodation in Reims try to stay in a B&B rather than in a hotel so it will you give you a close look on the French way of life and French gastronomy. Reims is a lovely town in Art Deco style and has very welcoming homes.

As far as we know there is no gite in Reims town, most of gites are situated in the countryside. In 2011 we know only 4 other guest house apart from ‘Les Telliers’.
