City Break : An alternative way to discover a town or city

    City Break, which was created in 2011, is the most recent Gites de France accommodation label. City Break properties are self-catering (houses and flats) and B&B accommodation located in towns with more than 20,000 inhabitants or in adjacent urban areas. They are within easy reach of the town or city centre by public transport, so they are ideally situated for enjoying cultural activities, events and services.

    In special cases, some City Break properties are available in towns of less than 20,000 inhabitants which meet the following criteria : they must be renowned both nationally and internationally, have a rich heritage, be the venue for a well-known event and receive a large number of tourists during the season. 'City Break by Gîtes de France®’ is urban accommodation with Gîtes de France® quality and expertise. There are 3 grades of accommodation - 'City Break Confort', 'City Break Premium' and 'City Break Luxury'.

    Rentals are often for short periods. City Break properties function in exactly the same way as gites and B&Bs.
