Residences with services are private housing complexes associated to
collective services. There are residences for seniors, residences of tourism,
business, or for students,
The residences with services are mainly located in the center of the cities, near the shops and transport links. They are composed of private apartments and common areas. The "Seniors" services residences are intended for autonomous retired persons, alone or as a couple, who wish to live in a secure community setting and benefit from services (concierge, catering, cleaning, entertainment, etc.). They are not social or medical institutions and they are not suitable for the reception of dependent persons.
The student residences offer furnished and equipped housing with access to shared services (restaurant, laundry, cleaning, wifi, coworking room, bicycle storage ...).
The tourist residences are classified accommodations that offer a set of "ready-to-live" apartments, equipped to receive a leisure or short-stay business clientele, with hotel services.
In France, investment in new residence with services benefits from tax cuts.
