French Logis de France

Logis de France hotels feature a quality label meaning you can expect a relaxing atmosphere, elegant furniture and fine food. This label - symbolised by a chimney - refers to a specific ranking according to which the hotels must offer good value for money and great comfort as well as traditional French food.


All tourist hotels are examined and graded by the French authorities. The official ranking divides them into 5 categories, considering the areas, facilities and services offered.

1-star and 2-star hotels provide basic accommodation when 3-star up to 4-star L (for Luxury) have more luxurious rooms.

This "rate" must be displayed outside the hotel (on a typical blue sign), as well as the prices by the way (which include taxes and services).
