The summer, Saint-Malo, in Ille-et-Vilaine, sees its population multiplied by four. With its mythical ramparts, its seafront and its beaches, the Breton town of 45,000 inhabitants has, for several years, has become a destination prized by tourists. However, the influx of visitors began to cringe some Malouins.

Our colleagues from France 3 collected, Monday, August 8, the testimonies of premises complaining of the massive arrival of tourists in their commune.

Result: the prices of rentals, like sales, have soared and the Falklands no longer manage to find accommodation.

to respond to the concerns of the inhabitants, the municipality therefore decided to fight against the seasonal rentals.

Without this authorization, it is impossible to hire your accommodation.

Since this limitation of short-term rentals, the number of apartments on sale has thus increased in Saint-Malo, rejoices the mayor, Gilles Lurton. Currently, 3,000 rentals have been recorded and 371 refused in the town. However, this measure did not only do happy. Sylvie Mitteaux-Martin, retired, had to stop renting four of her accommodation. Unhappy, she and other owners have therefore decided to attack the town hall in court, because they judge that these restrictions are illegal.
