“Furnished tourist accommodation is made up of furnished villas, flats or studios, for the exclusive use of the tenant, offered for rent to a visiting clientele who stay there on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, and who do not elect domicile there” (article D. 324-1 of the French Tourism Code).

-Customer reassurance: customers can be sure that their stay will be in a controlled rental property

The classification of furnished tourist accommodation is voluntary. It comprises 5 categories ranging from 1 to 5 stars and is valid for 5 years, at the end of which time the owner must apply for a new classification if he wants his accommodation to continue to be classified.

Furnished accommodation with a living area for one or two people must have a minimum surface area of 9 m² when the kitchen is separate, or at least 12 m² when there is a kitchenette.
This does not include the surface area of the WC and bathroom, which must therefore be deducted.

The ranking table contains 133 criteria divided into 3 main sections: facilities, customer services, accessibility and sustainable development.
The ranking is based on a points system. Some criteria are compulsory and others are optional.
Find out which category you would like to be classified in by reading the classification table.
