Are you the owner? Do you want to classify your furnished accommodation?
We are here to guide and support you in your approach.
Furnished tourist accommodation is furnished villas, apartments or studios rented to passing customers who stay there by the day, week or month and who do not take up residence there.
Classified or not, furnished accommodation must be declared to the town hall.
Reminder of the legal context: Law n° 2009-888 of July 22, 2009, on the development and modernization of tourist services and decrees n° 2009-1652 of December 23, 2009 applying the law, have redefined the tourist accommodation. The decree of August 2, 2010 and the decree of May 7, 2012 complete this system and set the standards and the procedure for classifying furnished tourist accommodation with the furnished tourist accommodation classification reference system. The Assembly of Corsica adopted on June 24, 2010 the procedures relating to the classification of tourist facilities. The final decision rests with the President of the Executive Council of Corsica who replaces the Prefect by establishing by decree the decision of classification (or declassification) after verification on documents by the Corsica Tourism Agency of the completeness of the file.
To take into account new customer requirements, the star rating of furnished tourist accommodation has evolved, including in particular criteria related to sustainable development and digitization. The decree of November 24, 2021 applicable since February 1, 2022 set the standards and the classification procedure for furnished tourist accommodation.
The classification is not mandatory for renting, but it is strongly recommended because it has several advantages:
A tax reduction of 71% instead of 50%
A commitment to the quality of your accommodation for your customers (from 1 to 5 stars)
A Tourist Tax adapted to your accommodation
A free publication on the Corsica Tourism Agency website
A validity of 5 years attributed in Corsica by the President of the Executive Council of Corsica

I have 15 days to possibly refuse the decision. After this time, the classification is acquired.
