Gîte-hunting in France and gîtes for sale

Many of us have been frustrated when trying to find gîtes for sale in France. It sometimes feels like French estate agents view a gîte business as an unimportant part of the property.

We are not estate agents, but we do have a network of gîte-like-minded people on Instagram. If you have a gîte property that you are selling, get in touch and we’ll feature it in our Instagram Stories.

If you are searching for a gîte property to buy, check out our Instagram Highlights section “Gîtes for sale” under our profile photo.

If you have not yet found a property to buy in France with a gîte, then we can help you defining the right criteria for the gîte part of the property.

The presentation covers:

If you have found a property you are interested in buying, we can give your our opinion on the gîte part of the property, including the gîte income it could generate. Please contact us to find out more.
