Gîtes de France stands out for its investment in digital strategy

Gîtes de France, a brand that has been established and widely known in France for sixty years, has maintained consistent growth by placing itself at the forefront of digital evolution in the industry. Having already introduced a form of tourism quite different from that traditionally seen in the sector, they stand out even further due to their investment in digital strategy. “We began a journey of conversion optimisation last year in order to adapt to the growing e-tourism market and the increasing digital requirements of our customers”, explains Anne-Catherine Péchinot, General Manager of Gîtes de France. “This year, we are reinforcing this strategy and are ready to begin a second stage.”

Convertize will use its digital expertise to help improve the Gîtes de France website

Convertize is going to assist Gîtes de France in this second stage, perfecting its conversion process using their digital and consumer psychology expertise. “The aim is to optimise the Gîtes de France website in order to increase the number of online reservations and the company’s overall turnover” explains Benjamin Ligier, Convertize’s Project Manager on the Gîtes de France account. This collaboration enables the two companies to realise this project together.
