The Logis de France is a chain of 3 300 independent hotels, with 62 300 rooms, spread all over France, and mainly in rural areas. Since 1949, the chain has been in constant development of the number of members and of the number of services that they share. This initiative has enjoyed a happy issue probably thanks to the assistance of the French state and the local authorities, which provided funding, low interest rates and technical assistance to the chain, at least during its first 30years of existence. By now, it is the largest chain of independent hotels in the world, though each hotel is small, with less than 20 rooms, but always with a thriving restaurant, a warm atmosphere and a very local decoration.
