The Var will fill up this summer as a record summer season looms for the housing rental platform in this department. For the first time since the creation of Airbnb, the number of reservations made in the Var for stays between July 1 and August 31 exceeds those to Paris, reports Var Matin.
The department thus takes the head of the most coveted destinations in France for this summer. The trend is global, while the share of reservations for rural areas was less than 10% in 2015. For this summer 2021, 45% of reservations made in France are for accommodation in rural areas. In the United Kingdom this share climbs to 48%.
