Yes. Either as actual days off, or by payment of a percentage of salary in lieu of days off.

You get 2.5 days a month, and on a CDD I'd imagine they pay it at the end of the period. Should be detailed in the contract.

Re: CDD contracts and Holiday pay

On a CDD you are entitled to 10% of your salary in lieu of holiday, this can be paid monthly or at the end of the contract.  If possible get it paid monthly because if it is all paid at the end and you claim chomage, you will not be eligible until you have waited the equivalent period.  For example, if you are paid your 10% monthly you only have to wait 2 and a half days - if it is the culmination of a season eg 6 months, you have to wait 15 days, so it makes quite a difference.
