About us

Established in 1998, Gite.com is a leading Internet-based catalogue of interesting holiday homes to rent in France. Our criteria are selective. We only accept homes into our database after carefully reviewing and examining a homeowner’s submission for inclusion.

If you are looking for a house in France, or wish to check on the availability of a property, please do not send an inquiry to us. Instead, find a house that suits you and contact the property owner directly. Our service is exclusively Internet-based and we do not offer a printed catalogue.

Being highly focused has allowed us to become one the most popular sites for finding a holiday home in France. Our objective is to put people looking for a vacation home in direct contact with homeowners or property managers. We are a member in good standing of the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie Française à l'Étranger, Toronto Chapter.

Did you receive a phone call from someone offering you a special rate to list your home on this and other websites? The people doing this are fraudsters who have no connection to us. Please alert the appropriate authorities if you receive any such call.

For property owners

Owners interested in applying to have their home listed with us should first check the Homeowners section to ensure that their property suits our selective criteria. We are only looking for properties that are architecturally representative of their region, furnished in the local style, and whose owners will act as enthusiastic and knowledgeable ambassadors for their area.
