SeLoger.com SAS, a subsidiary of Axel Springer Digital Classifieds and the largest online real estate portal in France, acquires 100 percent of PRAXIS SARL, the operator of Amivac.com, the French portal for holiday rentals. In 2011 and 2012, SeLoger has acquired the portals a-Gîtes.com and Vacances.com within this segment. Alongside Seloger, Axel Springer is also active in the holiday accommodation business in several countries through @leisure.
Amivac.com was founded in 2002 and offers around 30,000 holiday properties, most of them in France. The majority of these properties are advertised by private owners. The activities of the company and Amivac brand will be integrated into SeLoger's existing vacation rental portfolio.
Roland Tripard: "We want to provide our customers with a range of holiday properties as comprehensive as possible. Amivac.com is a perfect fit for our strategy of strengthening our position, above all in France. With this acquisition, SeLoger is significantly increasing its offer and its audience in this segment and will shortly be in a position to offer its users the ability to book their stay online."
SeLoger.com SAS is a leading operator of online real estate portals in France. The company was founded in 1992 and today successfully runs ten real estate portals, including seloger.com and selogerneuf.com. SeLoger has its headquarters in Paris and is part of Axel Springer Digital Classifieds.
