I know about booking.com and just started looking at Gîtes de France® (https://www.gites-de-france.com). What are some good ways to find rooms to rent in August? A friend and I will rent motorcycles in Geneva and ride south through the French Alps, Gorge du Verdun, Route des Grandes Alpes, Chamonix, and return to Geneva. Our trip will be from August 15 through August 26. Since this is the height of the tourist season, I want to make reservations.
Our current plan is to stay in most places one night, but I will try to modify the itinerary to make some places a two-night stay. We are not picky about the accommodations and are looking for hotels, B&Bs, or hostels. We do not need Holiday Inn luxury. Other than the two websites I mentioned, what are good ways to find and reserve rooms?
