I’ve just found some old photos from the house, before we moved in.

Heres is one of them, to be compared with one made this year.

Gite, Guest House: what’s the difference ?

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’.

I bumped on this while using a search engine about our guest house’s name.

Here is first paragraph …

‘They went there every evening about eleven o’clock, just as they would go to the club. Six or eight of them; always the same set, not fast men, but respectable tradesmen, and young men in government or some other employ, and they would drink their Chartreuse, and laugh with the girls, or else talk seriously with Madame Tellier, whom everybody respected, and then they would go home at twelve o’clock! The younger men would sometimes stay later.’ ……

From the first lines I guess this house was offering services which are certainly not available in our respectable B&B. And what is more, in Reims we would propose Champagne instead !
