French mortgages for Para Hotelier

Whether you are looking for a holiday home that you want to rent out when you are not staying there, or you are a property investor looking for investment opportunities, if you have not heard of Para Hotelier before, then you are in for a big surprise.

Para-Hotelier was created by the French government only a few years ago. For nearly 80 years France has been one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, and tourism is an important part of the French economy. When companies like AirBnB started to change the way we thought about booking holidays, instead of booking hotels we started to book self catering villas, chalets and apartments, the French government wanted to offer an incentive to property owners, so that France would have enough residential properties available.

There are no specific Para-Hotelier Mortgages as all French mortgages are calculated in the same way and based on your own personal income. However there are a couple of key features, firstly that the mortgage amount is based on the full purchase price, so when you receive the tax rebate from the French government, then that is essentially a refund of your deposit. If you would like to use this rebate to reduce your French mortgage, then some banks can allow this, even if your mortgage is on a fixed interest, with early redemption penalties.
