A little heavy do you Yet with the Internet, the publication suffered a severe weight loss cure. "Now, the ads seem in priority on the site." "The publication in the paper guide is only optional", says Catherine Jolly, Chairman of the group, which lists more than 350 000 visits per month on the site of the vacation rentals. The benefits of the canvas are multiple: thus for each rental, the landlord may put up to 18 photos online. "It is significant for the client."

Because this is the new situation of recent years. Blended families require, the French depart more and more at 5, 6 or even 7. Or downright accompanied by pairs of friends. At the same time, they are more fractionated vacations and, now, the rentals are essentially by the week or fortnight. "The third week is often from home, vacationers are less reluctant to afford goods above range." "As when they leave many, costs are shared between the families", explains Catherine Jolly.
