18 cities are subject of the new rules, agreed with the French government and a tourism association
In force from the beginning of January 2019, reservations in 18 French cities will be subject to new rules by the platform for accommodation and vacation rentals Airbnb. The listed residences, considered as primary, will not be allowed to host reservations for more than 120 nights per calendar year. The new limits will be applied automatically and concern listings of whole properties, where the owner lives at least 8 months per year, therefore – it is considered their primary home and are valid only for reservations made after the beginning of 2019.
However, rooms only could still be rented beyond the four-month period in such listings and in the event of a force-majeure or extraordinary circumstances, applications for an extension of the 120 days can be submitted.
The list of cities where the new limitations will be applied was drafted in consultation with the French Holiday Association and the French Government and includes the following:
- Neuilly sur Seine
- Roquebrune Cap Martin
- Saint-Paul de Vence
This measure comes in response to a commitment made by the French Holiday Association, of which Airbnb is a member, to the Government from six months ago and aims to promote the development of a sustainable short term rental market, while reducing the burden on long-term housing alternatives.
