So our project for the house in the Aude is coming along nicely and we are now getting to the point of looking for financing from the Consiel General etc for creating rooms and gîtes. We've done quite a bit of looking on the intertubes and it seems to be eligible for various aide etc you have to belong to one of the 4 nationally recognised labels. These are
Gîte de France
Fleur de Soliel
So any advise, opinions etc on which one to go with? We were thinking either Gîte de France or Clévacance as they have the most members. We know that we don't have to belong to any of these to actually run the B&B or the gîtes but to get things like 0% loans we do. Also we will be selling to the French market as well as to visiting tourists.
