what's French for "bed and breakfast"
... bonjour mes amis francophones!

Hi -

My translator is stuck on translating the term "bed and breakfast" into French.

Some website for a B&B in Quebec used "Cafe et Couette"

In France, the only site I could find easily that was in both French and English suggested that "gîtes" was the term for bed and breakfast.

My inclination would be towards "petits hôtels".

So, mes frères, any better suggestions?

they use "gites" for a rented house or flat on a daily basis
and "chambres d'hotes" for the B&B

um, yes, that's what I've been saying all along! :-p

omigod, the thread returns from the dead.

ok, listen up folks:

BED AND BREAKFAST = CHAMBRES D'HOTES

I'm in Provence, there are dozens of Chambres d'hôtes around here, I've stayed in a bunch, I have friends who manage some, we've made websites for several, I've done SEO for them. I repeat:

BED AND BREAKFAST = CHAMBRES D'HOTES

Please, thread, RIP :)

Capito, louponne, capito.
We've been saying that for a while;-)
Would you guys optimize pages on "chambres d'hotes", "chambres d'hôtes" or "chambres d'h&ocirc;tes"?

"chambres d'hotes", "chambres d'hôtes" or "chambres d'h&ocirc;tes"?

"Smart" SE (Google included) treat those three as the exact same these days, so it doesn't matter much. I tend to avoid accents entirely in page <title>'s though, just so they don't break in subsidiary SE's.
