The best tax regime for renting out property

We own a second property in France that we wish to rent out and would like to know if, as French residents and taxpayers, we can benefit from the micro foncier tax regime or if we must get involved in the régime réel? It is an unfurnished property and the income is likely to exceed the €15,000 ceiling for micro foncier but we do not know if this is per person or if this doubles to €30,000 for a jointly-owned property.
