A gîte d'étape is like a hostel but located in the mountains or rural areas that attract walkers, and often are located right near a hiking trail yet accessible by car. It usually has both private rooms and dormitory-style rooms sleeping several people and a shared bathroom. Many of them offer an evening meal prepared by the caretaker as well as access to kitchen facilities. Mountain refuges are similar but are generally reached by foot access only and located on waymarked hiking trails.
