If you are planning a trip to France, consider staying in an elegantly furnished and comfortable private apartment or hotel suite. Not only will it enhance your enjoyment, but it can help trim your travel budget with savings on accommodations and living expenses.
Given the small size of most Paris hotel rooms, apartment rentals and hotel suites generally offer you more space and conveniences – particularly if you have small children, or are traveling with close friends. Modern kitchens allow you to shop at Paris' wonderful food markets and prepare meals at home. After all, eating out in the City of Light can be an expensive proposition!
Rentals are located in much sought-after neighborhoods – such as Champs-Elysées, Opéra, the Latin Quarter, and fashionable Saint-Germain. Listings range from a cozy Left Bank studio to a 16th-arrondissement penthouse. Revel in the authentic charm of your own private retreat, and explore your neighborhood – the sidewalk café, the bakery, the charcuterie, the outdoor market.
All the Comforts of Home
Apartments are fully equipped and immaculately maintained by our experienced rental agencies. In fact, visitors need bring only themselves and a toothbrush!

To guarantee a reservation, some properties may require a 50% deposit at the time of confirmation, and the balance 30 days prior to your arrival in Paris.
