Hotels in France - July 2015

“The French hotel sector has been in the doldrums for some years, but now the outlook is brightening. After years of deep recession and deflation, the Eurozone economy, including that of France, has finally entered into a phase of tentative recovery, which should gather strength going forward. The weakening Euro against the currencies of France’s important source markets including the Pound, the Dollar and the Swiss Franc, should stimulate demand for inbound tourism. The growing population of over-50s is a potentially lucrative market for French hotels.”
