Accommodation in France

Thousands of French hotels offer the best standards of decor, comfort, and cleanliness.
Along with modernization, prices have increased. But in some cases they are still below of other countries in Europe, in Paris you find a hotel as vheap as 50 euro per room per night. And in France you generally pay per room and not per head, which means that two can sleep as cheaply as one. Continental breakfast is extra and optional, though some Paris hotels make it obligatory. Pension or demi-pension terms are likewise obligatory in most holiday hotels in summer, but not otherwise. For seaside resorts in summer or for Paris at Easter, rooms should be booked ahead. Apart from this, touring without advance booking is usually easy.
Many hotels, especially in remote or mountainous districts, have authentic local decor and a family atmosphere. The Logis de France, an association of fairly cheap but comfortable little hotels, mostly in country districts, offer good value.

There are hundreds of youth hostels that belong to the French Federation of youth hostels , generally costing cheaper than hotels, and with stays limited to three nights, or seven nights in the Paris region. Camping is enormously popular with the French themselves. There are numerous camping clubs and thousands of camping sites, graded according to the facilities they offer.
For most of them you need a camper's card or international camping carnet, obtainable from any national club affiliated to the International Camping and Caravanning Federation.
