Renting a house can indeed also be synonymous with holidays! In this case, it is necessarily a furnished house rental. It is a short-term rental lease that governs this type of rental. This lease contracts the relationship between the lessor and the tenant and details, for the duration mentioned, the different rights and duties of both parties, the complete description of the rented house and its furniture, as well as the rent per week of this holiday rental. The legal and fiscal regulations related to seasonal renting are different from those of classic renting.
Moreover, the rents for holiday rentals are much higher than those for classic rentals. They are generally rents per week (and not per month as in the case of a main house rental) and the rates charged during the holiday season are indeed quite expensive. It is the law of supply and demand, which is very strong during these holiday periods.
