French tourism industry celebrates unexpectedly successful summer

The French tourist industry has enjoyed a successful summer season despite the challenges of Covid-19 with people living in France opting for domestic holidays over foreign trips. 

Nine in every 10 French holidaymakers spent their summer break in France this year, and hotel owners have announced a 47% increase in takings in comparison to summer 2020.

Bookings have even overtaken 2019 numbers in some branches of the hospitality industry with director of Gîtes de France, Solange Escure, reporting on BFMTV a reservation rate of 73% this July, up from 59% two years ago.
