  • Housing tax

As soon as the owner of a vacation rental manages his rental himself, he is considered to have the enjoyment of the property, even if he does not use it. Its rental therefore forms part of its personal residence and is subject to housing tax as a secondary residence. Only people who have signed an exclusive rental management contract are exempt from housing tax.
The CCPF of Pays Fouesnantais voted to remove the exemption from the CFE (Cotisation Foncière des Entreprise) for furnished rentals. Consequently, properties offered for vacation rental are subject to housing tax AND the CFE.


  • Furnished Tourism

Furnished tourist accommodation is now one of the types of accommodation to which tourists willingly turn for their short or long stays. The rental of this type of accommodation meets strict rules.
