There is a reason for this — gites are located in the country, and I mean deep in the country. Many of these started out as farmworker homes, or were converted outbuildings and barns near the farm owner’s home that were converted into holiday residences. So it is extremely likely that you will have views like this out your front or back door.
Still, there are lots of cities, towns, and villages that are within a short driving distance from most of these cottages for the times that you need some civilization. And when you’re not in the mood, gites are a perfect way to escape to a simpler old world style of living that’s hard to find anywhere else. The opportunity to have both lifestyles on the same trip makes it worth their consideration.
