The furnished rental real estate market in Rennes



Rennes, an affordable city on a human scale in Brittany


Rennes or "The Red City", nickname it takes from its many brick constructions, very few of which have survived to the present day, is the capital of Ille et Vilaine and its region: Brittany . 

Located in Upper Brittany, Rennes is the capital of its region. It has around 220,000 inhabitants and attracts new ones every year for its economic dynamism, promoting innovation and entrepreneurship, but also for its comprehensive medical offer; all reinforced by the still attractive real estate prices. It is a destination of choice for future students, since Rennes offers one of the highest success rates in higher education. It is part of the top ranking of cities in France where life is good, in particular thanks to the cost of daily life, lower than in the majority of French cities, but also for its highly developed transport offer.

The weather is often uncertain but there are still very good days. Anyway, Breton galettes and cider are always there to warm up. More or less 1 hour from the most visited places in Brittany: St Malo, Dinan, Mont St Michel... Rennes is a city on a human scale, definitely Breton.



The housing shortage in Rennes is very strong


We speak of a housing shortage when the rental market experiences an imbalance between supply and demand. In short, tenants often struggle to find furnished accommodation.


As in nearly 60% of cities in France, Rennes suffers from a very strong and even extreme shortage of furnished accommodation: there is at least twice as much demand as supply.


We count in Rennes about between 2 and 4 times more demands than offers.


What type of accommodation to choose to stay in Rennes ? 


The type of accommodation is defined by two main criteria.

In real estate jargon, housing types are categorized according to what is called an attribute (T1, T2, T3, T4, etc.). This attribute indicates the number of living rooms: the living room and the bedroom(s). Thus, a T1 apartment is a dwelling which is composed of only one room, a T2 apartment which contains two rooms etc.

We can also categorize the types of accommodation according to the mode of rental. We will then find the following types of accommodation: entire accommodation, shared accommodation, residence, homestay, accommodation in exchange for services, CROUS, etc.

  • 83% of furnished accommodation offered to Rennes are studios or T1

  • 85% of furnished apartments for rent are one-bedroom from Rennes apartments 

  • 9% of the furnished rental offer in la Ville Rouge concerns apartments T3 or more


What surface for a furnished apartment in Rennes? 

The type of accommodation only indicates the number of rooms and not the size of the apartment. Thus, a T1 apartment can be larger than a T3 apartment. It is therefore necessary to take an interest in its surface! 

  • 23% of accommodations is less than 40m²

  • The size of 60% of accommodations is between 40 and 99m²

  • It is necessary to count a surface of more than 100m² for 17% of rental apartments in Rennes


What is the average rent for renting a furnished apartment in Rennes? 

The average rent per m² is 14€/sq.m. A tenant will have to provide on average 650€/month to stay in a furnished apartment in Rennes. 

It is necessary to count a budget, charges included, of:

  • 390€/month for a studio or a one-bedroom apartment,

  • 530€/month for a two-bedroom apartment,

  • 650€/month for a T3 apartment, including the entire accommodation offered for shared accommodation.

Rents for a furnished apartment in Rennes or in its periphery vary greatly depending on the location and type of housing.


Where to find a furnished apartment in Rennes?

To find your apartment in Rennes, you obviously have to choose its location. We advise you to check the proximity of your accommodation to your place of work or study, the metro station... and the neighborhoods that attract you!


Rennes city center, a concentration of Breton history and culture


The architecture of the Breton capital contains a concentrate of history, between ramparts and royal works. It is the favorite place of life of the people of Rennes who like to meet and share a good time, comfortably installed on one of the many terraces in the city center, a symbol of the local art of living. 

The center of Rennes revolves around the historic heart and its string of small streets, where you can find many shops where you can run errands and good places to eat crêpes. The city center is also organized around the famous Place de la Mairie, which is admired for its royal architecture but also for its opera house, the smallest in France. Fan of art? You will not be outdone in Rennes and can discover unique works at La Criée, the Museum of Fine Arts or the Champs-Libres gallery. 

The accommodation in the center is mostly old buildings with the typical charm of Brittany, although you can find a few rare offers in the new. Rennes residents who choose the city center as a place to live often look for proximity to shops, schools and transport.




The Saint-Martin district, tranquility in the heart of the city


On the northern border of the city centre, you will find the Nord Saint-Martin district, very popular with Rennes residents looking for tranquility in the heart of the city.

Calm and green, this district is crossed by a canal of the same name: the Saint-Martin canal, whose banks have been developed to the delight of residents and urban sports enthusiasts, who love to cycle there. In this district, we also find the Prairies Saint-Martin, a large park with trails for runners and ponds for walkers. Nord Saint-Martin is a true natural setting in the heart of the city. In this district, a large majority of the buildings are very recent and modern, it is also here that we find the renowned Rennes School of Business or the contemporary art center: Frac Bretagne, which hosts temporary exhibitions and permanents of a new kind.

On the housing side, you are in a residential area with new constructions. It is a very popular place for its tranquility, its immediate proximity to the center and its family atmosphere. Consider the high average rents in Rennes if you want to settle in this area.

  • The minimum duration of the lease is set at 1 year, or 9 months if the tenant is a student

  • The notice period for the owner is set at 3 months
