How to set the price of your rental?

A seasonal rental is a real real estate investment, the goal being first to collect an interesting rent. Nevertheless, you should know how to find the ideal price. You can freely fix this amount but it remains preferable to take into account several factors, in particular your geographical situation and the period at which you rent.

Your geographical


The city or the district in which your hiring is located influences much the price of the night of this one. Indeed, the rent in the tourist areas is much higher. Thus, a room in the province is not worth a room in Paris, even if they have the same interior characteristics.

The surrounding

green spaces

Plants are good for both body and mind! Implicitly, travelers know this and that’s why they often look for their proximity. So, if your house is on a mountain, next to a beach, a lake, a forest … it will have a direct impact on the amount of your rent.

What type of

house are you renting ?

We all know it! The square meter is rather expensive in France. Thus, the rent will be very variable according to whether you rent a house, a villa, a cottage, a mobile home, an apartment or a studio. Furthermore, the age of your rental property and the construction materials are also taken into account. Not to mention the capacity of the property: if it is judged that the property can accommodate several families, it will be relatively expensive. If not, it is better to keep the price reasonable.

The period

in which you rent

Be careful, the period in which you rent is crucial! Indeed, a house by the sea will be more expensive in summer than in winter. Conversely, a cottage will be more expensive in winter than in summer.

Small reminder :

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

Finally, to set your rent, look at the rates of the competition, similar accommodations, nearby hotels… Take into account all the criteria mentioned above. Then, adapt your offer according to the demand you receive (the higher the demand, the more you can afford to raise the price)
