@Zaphodbeeblebrox....absolute rubbish...it is not at the owners discretion, if you are found to have refused a rental due to the renter having a pet you are breaking the law and can be penalised. The laws are different in france and nowhere in an ad can you state that pets are not allowed unless it is a holiday rental or the dogs come under the dangerous dogs category.

Loi no° 70-598du 9 juillet1970 Article 10.

The best thing to do if you want to rent and you have a pet is to not say you have one.

As said, legally they can't turn you down because you have a pet. But for good rentals there are usually plenty of hopeful tenants, and the landlord may decide that somebody else, who by sheer co-incidence happens not to have a pet, is more suitable for a completely different reason - a more secure income for instance.

Holiday accomodation owners can say 'no pets'!

For residential they cant - unless there is a problem!
