Hi this is my first post on AirHosts.
I have been a regular Airbnb voyager since 2012 but decided this year to become a host. I live in Brittany, France.
My listing is for the use of two rooms in my home with shared facilities.
I was led to believe by a neighbour who is also an Airbnb host that I would have to register my rooms with the local mairie. When I contacted the mairie today enquiring what I need to do, I was informed that for chambre d’hote (private room short term rental in your home) doesn’t need registering but if my guests are not French nationals they would have to be registered with the prefecture. Are there any hosts here who are based in France who have any further information regarding this point?
I only intend to host for no more than the 120 days a year, in that situation do I have to register as a Micro Entrepreneur for tax purposes?
Thank you in advance.
