Running Gites and B&Bs in France


Running Gites and B&Bs in FranceFrance's beautiful and varied landscape and relaxed lifestyle have wide appeal, and over the last few decades hundreds of thousands of foreigners have purchased property there. Buying a home in France continues to be at the top of many people's wish-list, but, increasingly, property owners want to make the most of their investment and use it to supplement their income or pension. One of the best ways to do this is by providing gîte or bed and breakfast accommodation.

Running Gîtes & B&Bs in France is essential reading for prospective `landlords' and provides readers with a step-by-step guide to establishing and running a successful gîte or bed and breakfast business. Whether you plan to do this from abroad, using a local agent or manager, or as a full- or part-time resident in France, this book will prove invaluable.

It describes in detail everything you need to know, including what type of property to buy and where; whether to buy an existing business or start from scratch; how to go about conversion and renovation; obtaining grants, loans and mortgages; legal considerations; record-keeping and taxation; equipment and provisions; advertising, marketing and publicity; handling enquiries and bookings; providing extra services; employing an agent and hiring staff; and much, much more.

France is one of the world's most popular holiday destinations and a wonderful place to invest in a home - few countries can compete with its stunning scenery, charming villages, delicious cuisine and fine wines - not to mention the seductive French lifestyle, with its emphasis on relaxation and enjoying yourself. We trust Running Gîtes & B&Bs in France will help you find the right property investment and enjoy it to the full.
