The Odalys Group's background

Founded in 1998, Odalys Vacances has since established itself as a key player in the market of holiday home letting - being the second biggest in France today. Specialised in the running and letting of listed tourist residences, Odalys now manages a total of 328 residences / properties in France and has 115,000 beds. In 2012 they welcomed approximately 2.2 million customers and had a turnover of €212 million.


Its residence occupying system is very efficient thanks to its effective representation amongst works councils and Tour Operators. Odalys take on, through means of a lease, the rental of the apartments in its residences for a fixed and renewable period of 9 years minimum.

Backed by the Groupe Financière Duval (Duval Financial Group), Odalys has experienced a sustained growth rate, mostly due to its external growth policy.

During its development, the Odalys Group has structured itself around 3 principal aims:

- The occupation of its facilities
- The management of its residences
- The administration of the managed properties
(SGIT Gestion)
