Apartment Rentals in Paris: The affordable solution with a more personal touch.

Apartment Rentals in Paris: The affordable solution with a more personal touch.

Hotels in Paris are often becoming travelers’ back up choice when vacationing abroad. More people are opting for a Paris rental apartment by the night, the week or the month. Living like a local is considerably cheaper and offers many more amenities: a kitchen, free internet access, more space, a place where you can actually host parties if you want to.
Following are a few links to Paris vacationing/short term/long term rentals websites. They usually offer enough pictures of the Parisian apartments for rent that you can get a pretty good idea of what to expect — at least aesthetically speaking. Plan several months ahead of time to get what you are looking for. And for those of you who can’t book ahead of time, some of these sites also offer last minute deals.

Flat-share in Paris/ Colocation à Paris

Flat-share in Paris/ Colocation à Paris

Renting an apartment in Paris can be a very difficult thing. Lots of documents are required and if you are a foreigner you might never come up with what you are being asked for. You might find a room much faster if you decide to share a flat with someone already renting in Paris. If you are looking to rent a room in Paris or you want to share an apartment with French people for an unlimited or limited amount of time, and you don’t mind living with a roommate or two (the more roommates, the bigger the apartment—that can be a plus in Paris) here’s a place for you to check: colocation.fr. It is a serious website (in French) that is referred to in national newspapers and magazines and on the Paris City Hall’s website.

The site was first targeted to students but it quickly extended its services to everyone. With over 150 000 visitors per month, colocation is being used by single people or couples—married or not, with children or without. The flat-sharing business is sought after by people from 18 to 50 years old who are interested in it for reasons as various as saving money, not being alone, living a communal life or meeting new people.
