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.

One Comment


I am looking to share an apartment with somebody in Paris for 6 months from October.

I am a 24 years old girl from Dublin, Ireland, with a full time job. I am looking for an apartment in a busy area with nightlife. I have lived in the 11th before and liked that very much.

I look forward to hearing from you.
