I've been a host for 3 years now and I love it. Me and my wife have full time jobs, but hosting is also among our priorities, as we do it all year long, in a different location than our home.
We would like to buy propery in Alsace - France and I would like to ask if there is anyone active on this forum that is a host in that area and could share their experience regarding the below topics:
1. What is the income tax you have to pay (to the municipality, or to the French state)
2. Do you have to apply for a permit and if yes, is it hard to obtain?
3. What is your average occupancy rate/year?
Thanks in advance and happy hosting!
