The reserved portion limits the will of the deceased by reserving a fraction of the succession to certain categories of heirs called “compulsory heirs” (“héritiers réservataires”).

While settling the succession, donations made by the deceased will be taken into account in two cases:
1) When there exists at least two heirs and one of them has received a donation; and
2) When the deceased leaves at least one compulsory heir (“héritiers réservataires”).
