Procedure of classification for tourist accommodation

The classification of tourist accommodation concerns the following accommodation categories: hotel, camping, residential leisure park, tourist residence, holiday village, residential tourism village as well as furnished tourism accommodation (gite). The declaration in town hall of furnished tourist accommodation is mandatory for the classification of these last ones.

The classification decision is awarded following a paid inspection visit by an approved organization. This organization uses a repository that lists the different criteria that will be analyzed.

The classification is made in star. It starts at 1 * and goes up to 5 *. This ranking is voluntary and valid for 5 years.
