Paris has introduced time limits on short-term apartment rentals on sites like Airbnb. The city blames short-term rentals for taking away housing to Paris residents.

Putting limits is not new: Berlin has banned rentals of less than a month. London and Barcelona have introduced caps as well.

France is Airbnb’s second-largest market, after the US, with 350,000 listings, 65,000 of which are in Paris, the most visited city in the world.
