    Eleven per cent of adults living in France in 2011 live in two or more residences. The phenomenon isparticularly widespread among young adults - 26% of 18-19 year olds are concerned - who live in tworesidences for family and educational reasons. The second home is most frequently used on weekends andholidays. Only 9% to 10% of working adults live in morethan one residence. The second dwelling is mainly used for holidays and leisure, especially after age 60(when retirement increases free time), for those with the physical health and financial resources to maintaina second home. Among French adults, having two residences is most frequent among Île-de-Franceretirees and students from Brittany and Auvergne.
