The only word I can think of that has the same letter repeated (at least) three times consecutively is créée such as in ...

La nouvelle fonction qu'il a créée [..]

Are there other examples?

  • let me simply point out that in French é and e are not really the same letter..

  • Well yeah. The alphabet still contains only 26 letters. There are no special places for é, è, à, î and others.

Of Course there are. You should check wikipédia for some examples

See : Wikipédia - Mots avec trois lettres identiques à la suite

As precised in this article (which might not record every example), these are "all past particpates from first group verbs in their feminin form and their plurals".
