The specificities of the mobile home

The mobile home is a mobile leisure residence which is comparable to any other type of accommodation. However, the installation of a mobile home is strongly prohibited on private land. This type of accommodation must be installed in a holiday village, a campsite, a residential leisure park or in a leisure area. Several models of mobile homes are available in these locations, and they are distinguished by their size, their living space and the presence of a terrace.

This mobile residence can be moved once the plot rental contract ends, and you wish to change location. In the clauses of the plot rental contract, the mobile home can access water, electricity and gas. In addition, owners can take advantage of the establishment’s facilities, such as the aquatic area, the games room, the multi-sports field, the children’s club, etc. In addition to this, the owner can lend, rent or sell his mobile home as he wishes.
