ADR Summary​

ADR Summary

Average Daily Rate (ADR) for STRs in Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur, France – Month on Month from January 2021 to January 2024

The Average Daily Rate (ADR) for the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region of France has demonstrated a fluctuating trend across the period from January 2021 to January 2024. Still, overall it has shown a positive progression.

In 2021, there was a steady increase in ADR from 123€ in January to 173€ in August, marking a high peak. However, a subsequent decline was noted in September to 134€, followed by a lower peak of 168€ in July. The ADR then decreased continually, reaching the lowest point in November at 112€, rebounding slightly to 124€ in December.

Conversely, in 2022, the ADR started at a relatively lower 113€ in January, peaking once more at 190€ in August. Similar to the previous year, a decline was witnessed post this peak, with ADR going down to 124€ in December.

The year 2023 began with an ADR of 116€ in January, which reached a high mark of 184€ in August, showing a similar peak as the last two years. However, unlike previous years, the ADR then increased to reach the highest point at 210€ in December.

Finally, in January 2024, the ADR of 149€ shows a decrease compared to the previous month but is higher than the ADR in January 2023.

This data suggests a cyclical pattern where the ADR increases from the beginning of the year and reaches a high in August, followed by a decrease in subsequent months, indicating dynamic short-term rental market performance.

RevPAR Summary​

RevPAR Summary

Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) in Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur, France – Month on Month from January 2021 to January 2024

The data for the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region of France from January 2021 to January 2024 indicates a general upward trend in RevPAR (Revenue Per Available Room) measured in Euro (€). This trend, however, also displays clear seasonality, with peaks and troughs corresponding to particular months each year, demonstrating robust rental market performance.

In 2021, the RevPAR started relatively low at 30€ in January, it then increased gradually reaching a peak at 124€ in August (a prime summer month), before declining back down to 37€ in December. The same kind of seasonal pattern was observed in 2022, with the RevPAR hitting a high of 141€ in August and a low of 29€ in January.

In 2023, the RevPAR ranged from 37€ in January to 136€ in August, showing the continuation of this seasonal pattern. However, at the end of the year, in December, there was a notable increase, with the RevPAR reaching 86€, higher than the previous year’s December figure of 42€. In January 2024, the RevPAR was 58€, which suggested a continuous increase when compared to the same month in previous years.

The recurring high RevPAR values in the summer months (particularly August) suggest a substantial increase in room revenue during this period, which likely corresponds with the tourism season in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region of France.

Post-summer months, the occupancy rates decrease, hitting their lower point in the winter. This is observed with occupancy rates declining to 30% in December 2021, 34% in December 2022, and 41% in December 2023.
