Is your home in France your "principal residence " ie from where you declare your world wide taxes ?

I think you need to be clear about what info you are looking for, in order to obtain the right advice

I am in the same situation .I have owned my property for 20years but my principal home is in England. I do rent my home out in high season and declare this in the way of tax de sejour etc . Is a residency application needed ? Some say it is and some not, it depends what you read. Can anyone provide information.

If you are a UK resident  with a holiday home then from 1 Jan you are treated as a third party national When you arrive at the border your passport will be stamped as it will when you leave You can spend a maximum of 90 days in any 180 day period in the EU  without a visa

it seems that French citizens can go Skiing in another country and then return to France without restrictions. When can British National enter France for social reasons without any covid19 restrictions?

The 90 days you get out of 6 Months does not even give us time to sell the property. Which we will have to as no point owning it if you cannot go there,

I know it's not as easy as it once was for you, but it's not impossible. We're Americans with a small apartment in France. We apply for a long-stay visa each year so we can spend 4-5 consecutive months (or longer). The paperwork is intrusive but the process is easy enough.

Oh, and we have not been allowed to enter France, or most of Europe, during the pandemic. But we knew there were risks purchasing real estate in another country and these are unusual times.

Was there an answer to the original question in this thread or did I miss it? Thanks

@ Listen Very Carefully - just found your response- thanks. I’m a UK ‘national/ resident with second residence and have a European passport. Assume therefore I can travel freely?
