What does F1 or F2 or F3 or F4 mean in a French real estate ad?

In a French real estate advertisement if you see the notation F1 it is referring to a house with one room.  A one bedroom house is rare, more likely you will see the notation F3 or F4 or F5 meaning respectively, a two bedroom or three bedroom or four bedroom house.

The ‘F’ is referring to the number of rooms called ‘pièces’ in French. The term ‘pièces’ is defined here.

Note: Sometimes you will see a T used instead of F in the advertisement. Generally, this is used in reference to an apartment. For example a T2 is a one bedroom apartment. Learn more about the meaning of T1 and T 2 here.  

A T1 apartment is the same as a F1 apartment.
