Gîte Guru

Fast-tracking you to gîte success

Running a gîte is no mean feat – trust us, we know!
You need to be a competent marketeer and communicator, interior designer, gardener, bookkeeper, cleaner, account manager and guide. 

So whether you’re just starting out, or finding it hard to gain momentum, we can help. With our honest guidance, tailored strategies, and unwavering support, you’ll be equipped to overcome obstacles and achieve the thriving gîte business you’ve always dreamed of.

Free initial zoom

If you’re interested in us helping you with your new or existing gîte, then contact us for a free, no-obligation zoom. We’ll discuss your property, plans and goals, so that we understand your needs and how we can best help you.

On the basis of this, we’ll email you a tailored proposal detailing the areas we’ll cover with you, and our corresponding fee.

Our fee is calculated on the time needed and the topics covered. Hiring us is an investment, but one that will save you time and money, whilst giving you concrete ways to boost your bookings and keep your costs down.

Whether you have a 1-bed cottage or a rambling château, do get in touch!

Our own gîtes

We measure our gîtes’ success by our long season, occupancy rate and the number of guests we welcome back every year.

Gïte Guru came about when we were approached to help a couple starting out with a gîte, who wanted to build their business on what we had learned. Since then we have assisted owners of 1-bedroom gîtes and enormous châteaux. Whatever your property, we can help you make it, your service and facilities as good as possible, market it strongly, help ensure your business runs smoothly and your costs remain low.
