We recently asked the owners of our holiday properties who goes to France for holidays and when - and how the market is holding up in terms of letting weeks per year. Their response showed that France is as popular as ever, with a reassuring stability in the length of the French holiday season over the last three years.
Around 30% of owners who responded said that they let for 20 to 30 weeks of the year and 15% report 30 to 40 weeks of lettings. So the majority of respondents attract visitors during the peak summer period and into the spring and autumn ‘shoulder’ times, making a season from five to ten months’ duration. Some of these include the Christmas and New Year peak with lulls on either side.
