When you visit Paris, where you stay is an important part of the journey. Staying in an apartment really enhances the whole Paris experience enabling you to live more like a local than a visitor.

Why rent an apartment in Paris?

Whether you’re solo, a couple, friends or a family, renting an apartment can give you a whole load more options than renting a hotel room.

Cost: It’s usually much more cost-effective to stay in an apartment in Paris. You can rent one a one bedroom apartment, two bedroom or more and share.

If you’re planning a long term stay, you’ll almost certainly be able to make savings by renting an apartment.

Freedom: If you’re in Paris for a week or more – you might value being able to cook your own breakfast, lunch or dinner once in a while instead of going out all the time. And, shopping at a fabulous street market is a brilliant experience in itself.

For families it means you can put kids to bed when they’re tired and then still enjoy the rest of the night without turning the lights off and keeping quiet in the hotel room so as not to wake them up! Maybe you’ll sit on the terrace looking out over the rooftops of Paris, or plan the next day’s itinerary, enjoy a take away meal or cook something that you got at the market earlier. Or maybe you’ll pop their clothes in the apartment washing machine – it might not be glamorous but with kids, it’s definitely a plus!

Local life: There’s not much that beats getting up early and heading off to join the queue at your local boulangerie to buy freshly baked croissants to take back to your apartment – it really does feel like you’re a local when you do that! And – you’re never far from a brilliant boulangerie in Paris.

Bring home a bunch of flowers, some fresh fruit, a fabulous scented candle to personalise “your home” in Paris.
