Staying in a hotel in France is sometimes the best option when you’re based in a city such as Paris, and are looking for the amenities, level of service and convenience that a hotel can offer.
The great thing about these charming french hotels is that they all have a unique character and atmosphere; they are often independently run rather than owned by a big chain.
They can be in historical buildings, for example, or run by a family for generations.
Most of the hotels listed here are in smaller towns or rural areas. They are all still within easy reach of the main attractions and cities, though, so you’ll get the best of both worlds. They are mostly 3 or 4 star.
