A seasonal rental is a real investment in real estate, with the primary aim being to earn an attractive rental income. Nevertheless, you need to know how to find the right price. You are free to set the amount, but it’s a good idea to take several factors into account, including your location and the time of year you rent.

Your geographical


The city or district in which your rental is located has a major influence on the price per night . In fact, rents in tourist areas are much higher. So a room in the provinces is not the same as a room in Paris, even if they have the same interior features.

The surrounding

green spaces

Plants are good for both body and soul! Travelers know this implicitly, which is why they often seek them out. So, if your house is on a mountain, next to a beach, a lake, a forest… this will have a direct impact on the amount of your rent.

What type of

house are you renting ?

We all know that! The square meter is rather expensive in France. As a result, the rent will vary greatly depending on whether you rent a bungalow, villa, chalet, mobile home, apartment or studio. In addition, the age of your rental property and the building materials used add value and are also taken into account. And don’t forget the capacity of the property: if it’s deemed suitable for several families, it will be relatively expensive to rent . In this case, it’s best to keep the price reasonable.

The period

in which you rent

The time of year you rent is crucial! A house by the sea will be more expensive to rent in summer than in winter. Conversely, a chalet will be more expensive in winter than in summer.

A quick reminder:

  • Very high season for winter vacations: February.
  • Very high season for summer vacations: July 20 to August 20.

Finally, when it comes to setting your rent, keep an eye on your competitors‘ rates, on similar accommodation, on nearby hotels… Take all the above criteria into account. Then adapt your offer according to the demand you receive (the higher the demand, the more you can afford to raise prices).
