Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Forthcoming Gite holiday price rise in January

For the last couple of months I've been advertising on our French Holiday Home that all 2008 holiday bookings taken in 2007 would be held at 2007 prices.

So far this year advance bookings are running at pretty much the same rate as they were at the same stage in 2006, we've taken 8 bookings already for 2008 starting with the first in August 2007 - a massive 363 days before their holiday, then continuing with one or two bookings a month through August, September, October, November and the most recent booking we took just before Christmas.

We've now taken bookings for a week in May, two in June, two in July and all of August 2008.

So although most of the peak school holiday periods have already been booked (which is great news from a rental perspective but does mean we won't be able to enjoy the Gite ourselves ) there's still plenty of available dates to rent our holiday home through May, June, July, September and October. The weather in Brittany's milder than it is in the UK so there's quite an extended booking season - we've enjoyed eating lunch outside on the patio as early in the year as Easter-time!

So book now to avoid the price rise !
