Vacation rentals: a vast subject! If you want to rent from a private individual, here are our 4 favorite sites.

1. Airbnb

We won’t go on about it for too long, but Airbnb is now THE benchmark for private rentals.

Its plus? You can book single rooms as well as houses and castles! Recently, an option for
unusual accommodation
and you’ll find some real gems.

We also really appreciate the possibility of booking
in addition to accommodation.

2. Abritel

belongs to the Home Way group (Expedia) and offers over 2 million listings in 190 countries.

Here too, choose the accommodation of your dreams: houses, villas, caravans… A wide choice awaits you.

Its plus? The “Free Cancellation” section is a real success in these troubled times for tourism.

3. PAP vacations

Well-known for long-term property rentals, the platform is also expanding into tourist rentals.

Widely used by private individuals, the site offers holidaymakers rentals with no booking fees, classified by region or theme!

For us, PAP vacances is a bit like leboncoin!

4. Leisure auctions

Granted, it’s the least well-known, but not the least interesting!

In fact, it can be considered the best bargain. This means you can book your vacation with higher bids, making it easier to manage your budget.

The only small flaw, on
leisure auctions
you need to be reactive and patient. But for a good vacation rental, you need to take your time.
