Short Term Rentals For Sale in Paris

Before the city outlawed short-term rentals, purchasing a property and offsetting the costs by renting it out when not in use by the owner was a popular choice for investors and lovers of Paris. However, the city has cracked down hard on vacation rentals in recent years and people thought the gold rush of those days were long gone.

However, if you find the right apartment you can still have a short term rental that is legal allowing you to benefit from lucrative rental income, the appreciation of a valuable asset over time, and enjoy your own home in the City of Light.

The short term rentals we have available for sale are in 2 of our favorite areas in Paris. One is in the 17th arrondissement where you can live like a true local, enjoying markets, small independent businesses, and the charm of every day Parisian life. The other is in the prestigious 5th arrondissement, steps from the Jardin du Luxembourg.

Enjoy long walks, an apéro on a terrace, warm croissants from the boulangerie, wine and cheese with friends, and weekend mornings at your local market. Email info@hipparis.com at once and read on for more details!

Short Term Rentals In Paris- Frequently Asked Questions

Are short-term rentals allowed in Paris?

Short-term rentals in Paris are regulated by city planning authorities. They have faced significant restrictions over the past decade. Generally, short-term rentals of up to 120 days are allowed for primary residences. For other properties, a special designation from the city is required to legally rent out on a short-term basis. These designations are no longer being issued. Properties without this permit won’t be able to get one in the future.

What is the punishment for violation of the city’s short-term rental regulations?

Illegal short-term rentals can result in fines of up to €50,000.

What are some of the other pitfalls of operating short-term rentals without permits in Paris?

Potential conflicts with neighbors and the risk of being reported make illegal rentals a risky option for most buyers.

What are the alternatives to short-term rentals if you can’t get a permit?

Furnished rentals of one month or more—known as “bail mobilité” leases—intended for students, visiting executives, or professors, offer a legal alternative for foreign investors to generate income, though not as lucrative as Airbnb-style rentals.
