Why Visit Paris
For People Who Want To Visit Paris Someday


Paris Vacation Rentals

Most people who visit Paris stay in hotels, hostels or bed and breakfast accommodation. But if you are planning to visit Paris for a week or more, it can make a lot of sense to think in terms of a Paris vacation rental instead.

Apart from the potential of saving money, it's great fun to stay in a Paris holiday apartment or flat. You become much more a part of the local community, when you buy food in the local baker's or butcher's. And it's a way of improving your French, as well as partaking of the local delicacies. 

When you're staying in Paris, an apartment is a great alternative to a hotel, especially if you are travelling with children or in a group. It will work for a short break or for a longer vacation, even for a business trip. You get more space, more privacy and even a better price than in a hotel.

There are hundreds of apartments to let in Paris - in all areas, and in all sizes and price ranges.
Here are some websites, where you can see what's on offer:
