Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs) and Guest Houses
These are family homes where you can sleep for the night and have breakfast in the morning (some also offer evening meals e.g. table d'hôte style), also known as B&Bs, chambres d'hôtes and a variety of other names in different countries. Essentially bed and breakfasts (B&Bs) and guest houses are family homes which offers you the chance to stay with the family for the night in a much more personal environment than you'd find in a hotel. The buildings themselves range from humble cottages through to luxurious castles, from mas to maison du maître but always offering you the opportunity to experience the personal attention you'd thought had long since disappeared. If you've only stayed in hotels before, you'll find a refreshing change from the standardised hotel rooms. Each B&B or guest house is also the owners' home so you can expect a wide variation in the decoration and services offered: one night you can dine with an ex-Michelin chef, the next it'll be "the wife" (or perhaps "the husband") that does the cooking.
