Revenue from the tourism businesses

Q1 2023/2024 revenue from the tourism businesses was up 5.9%, continuing on from Q4 of the previous year (+6.1%). The revenue trend was in line with targets for the period and is strengthened by the level of tourism reservations generated for the second quarter of the year.

Accommodation revenue

Accommodation revenue totalled €287.2 million in Q1 2023/2024, up 5.4% relative to the year-earlier period, after a 4.8% increase seen over the summer season.

Growth in revenue was driven by the rise in average letting rates (+5.0%) and the number of nights sold (+0.5%). RevPar4 was also higher than in Q1 2022/2023 (+4.4%).

The occupancy rate stood at 69.4% (vs. 69.9% over Q1 2022/2023).

All brands contributed to growth in revenue:

- Center Parcs: +6.1%

Growth was primarily driven by average letting rates (+6.3%), and benefited domains located in BNG5, with revenue at the French domains suffering from a disadvantageous calendar effect for the school holidays and the partial unavailability of cottages at the Domaine des Hauts de Bruyères, which was being renovated over the quarter.

RevPar was up 2.8%.

- Pierre & Vacances: +1.1%

Revenue from the residences in France was down (-4.8%), due to the reduction6 in the stock operated by lease (-8.1% of nights offered relative to the first quarter of the previous year). On a constant stock basis, revenue was up (RevPar up 3.7%).

Revenue from the residences in Spain was up sharply (+32.4%), driven by both average letting rates (+10.6%) and a higher occupancy rate (+9.6 points). RevPar was up 32.7%.

All destinations combined, the P&V brand posted a 5.2-point increase in the occupancy rate, offsetting the decline in average letting rates (-3.0%) related to:

  1. a disadvantageous calendar effect in France (shift in the second week of the school holidays, which has higher average letting rates, to the second quarter of the year).

  2. A mix effect (robust growth in revenue at seaside destinations (+9.6%) posting lower average letting rates than at mountain sites).

  3. it should also be remembered that Q1 2022/2023 represents a high base effect (+8.7% compared with Q1 2021/2022).

RevPar was up 7.2%.

- Adagio: +6.3%

Adagio continued to grow with revenue for the first quarter driven by average letting rates (+7.3%).

RevPar was up 2.6%.

Supplementary income7:

Q1 supplementary income totalled €76.6 million, up 7.5% relative to Q1 of the previous year, driven by higher onsite sales (+8.3%) and growth in the maeva.com management and distribution business (+10.1% over the quarter).

Other revenue:

Q1 2023/2024 revenue from other businesses totalled €30.4 million compared with €47.1 million in Q1 2022/2023 (with no significant impact on EBITDA), primarily made up of:

- Renovation operations at Center Parcs domains on behalf of owner-lessors, for €5.0 million (compared with €26.1 million in Q1 2022/2023).

- Les Senioriales for €14.3 million (vs. €18.2 million in Q 2022/2023).

- The Major Projects business line: €10.1 million (of which €8.8 million related to the extension of the Villages Nature Paris domain) vs. €0.8 million in Q1 2022/2023.

2] Main events during Q1 2023/2024

On 28 December 2023, the Group completed the disposal of its businesses operated by lease for 29 Senioriales residences to the ACAPACE Group, shareholder of the brands Jardins d’Arcadie (residences for the elderly) and Sandaya (open-air hotels).

ACAPACE's takeover of this perimeter is effective from January 1, 2024.

3] Outlook - Tourism businesses

In view of reservations to date for the second quarter of 2023/2024, the Group is currently expecting further revenue growth in Q2 compared with Q2 2022/2023, for all of its brands.

The portfolio of reservations generated so far is higher than the year-earlier level, representing 85% of the target budgeted for the first half (which accounts for slightly more than 40% of full-year revenue), and almost half of the target set for the full-year 2023/2024, thus enabling the Group to approach 2024 confidently.

4] Financial calendar

First half revenue for 2023/2024 will be published on 23 April 2024 after the market close.

IFRS11 adjustments: for its operating reporting, the Group continues to integrate joint operations under the proportional integration method, considering that this presentation is a better reflection of its performance. In contrast, joint ventures are consolidated under equity associates in the consolidated IFRS accounts.

Impact of IFRS16: The application of IFRS16 as of 1 October 2019 leads to the cancellation, in the financial statements, of a share of revenue and the capital gain for disposals undertaken under the framework of property operations with third-parties (given the Group’s leasing contracts). See below for the impact on Q1 revenue.
