The reasons pushing me to start this blog on furnished rentals

Share my knowledge, expertise and questions on furnished rentals…

I am utterly convinced that furnished rentals are more than ever a highly sought-after type of rental housing which is the perfect solution to current generations and future generations’ mobility issues. It’s clear to me that it remains one of the only attractive investment opportunities in an unstable and unpredictable environment.

Facing the constant evolution of legal and tax regulations, I wanted to share my knowledge, skills and experience through this blog for everyone to access specific real estate information.

… after a legal law degree in real estate law

It was during my legal studies at Assas University that I’ve become particularly interested in real estate law and tax law. My degree in notarial studies and several years of real estate experience working towards a major Parisian study’s development enabled me to deepen my knowledge and skills in the aforementioned fields.
In 2006 I joined the family-owned company Lodgis which is located in Paris and specialized in furnished rentals, as an Associate and Legal Director.


In addition to my work at Lodgis, I participate in conferences on furnished short-term/vacation rentals’ legal and tax issues and organize training programs dedicated to these issues with the help of chartered accountants, on a regular basis.

Cover of the Practical Guide to Furnished and Seasonal Rentals, 4th edition


Since I’m always concerned about informing and advising investors, I’ve also written a “Practical Guide to Furnished and Seasonal Rentals” (Éditions Maxima). Advice, practical steps, legal regulation, tax advantages… this guide allows landlords of furnished properties to avoid inconveniences and to obtain the best possible return on their rental investment.
The 4th edition of the “Practical Guide to Furnished and Seasonal Rentals”, published on the 9th November 2017, is available in all good bookshops (see the list), on the Éditions Maxima website and at the reception at the Lodgis Agency (situated at 21 rue Saint Marc, 75002 Paris).
