On 8 November 2021, Airbnb announced that it will donate more than 5.6 million to fund the renovation of heritage buildings in rural France. This grant comes as Airbnb launches a new set of measures to revitalize heritage tourism in rural France, in partnership with the French Rural Mayors Association.
Cédric Szabo, director of the French rural mayors association, said:“Beyond traditional landmarks in big cities, towns and villages of rural France offer the richest diversity of historical homes and buildings that have contributed to make our country one of the most sought by visitors everywhere in the world. We are glad to partner with Airbnb to preserve and keep this heritage alive for future generations.”
