Résidence de tourisme: a second home only better!

Are you planning to invest in a second home as an asset and to provide additional income?

La résidence de tourisme

As well as position and surface area, you will be faced with a choice:

Investing in standard co-ownership format or in résidence de tourisme?


A second home in standard co-ownership format: full time occupancy
If the idea is to be able to manage the property as it suits you, invest in standard format co-ownership. You will then be able to let it and choose to make use of it as and when you like. Let it by the day, the week or the month, to holidaymakers, acquaintances or family and friends with the option to use it yourself at any time or lend it to friends or family. It is your home and the choice is yours.

The downside is that you have to take care of everything: finding tenants, inventories, any disputes, co-owners’ general meetings, declaring rental income … and that, even with a second home, is not always like being on holiday.
