The Perfect Paris Vacation Apartment

Mar 1, 2008
Short term Paris vacation rentals allow families to live like locals. The simple pleasures such as going to the market and cooking meals, exploring and relaxing on your own schedule are just a few of the benefits associated with booking your own Paris vacation apartment. The key is to book at least 3 months preferably six months in advance. I know this sounds usual but savvy Paris vacationers know that prime apartments are booked far in advance or high season dates such as Easter, June and Christmas and New Years.

You will have to forgo standard hotel niceties such as concierge and, daily housekeeping. If you want a Paris apartment but cannot imagine making your own bed and you need the services of a concierge not necessarily daily but want someone to call for those pesky Paris emergencies, consider renting with Paris Luxe Apartments, this agency caters to the affluent vacationer not willing to forsake luxury in an apartment.

With an agency, one phone call, will get you access to a range of choices. If you do not need luxury than consider Book Your Paris Apartment, not a luxury agency but offering a portfolio of value focused Paris apartments for rent. The weekly rates are competitive and the apartments do not include any amenities. Renting a Paris apartment directly from the owner might be cheaper, but you will have to do without the objective viewpoint and the advice that an agent might offer and of course you will have less recourse if something goes wrong. If you are determined to work with the owner directly, Home Away has a searchable database of vacation rentals. Craig's List, recognized by everyone is an ideal resource for vacation rentals listings. For a real money saver, consider swapping with other home owners. Make sure that you develop a relationship with your booking agent. There is no such thing as a dumb question so ask about noise level, neighbors, the safety of the block. Another good thing to do is ask for testimonials or to speak to person who has not only visited the apartment but ideally spent a couple of days there. If you like to to take hot one hour showers and there are four other people in your group, is your shower realistic expectation?

The most requested district or arrondissement in Paris is the 6th also known as St.Germain des Pres.
Savvy dwellers of Paris Vacation Apartments know to reserve a Paris apartment, six months and sometimes even a year in advance. The first to go are the coveted 2 bedrooms/2 bath which are ideal for families of 4. Many Paris apartment owners charge additional euros to utilize the sofabeds so even if the apartment says sleep 6,don't be surprised if you will have to pay additional for the extra towels and linens.
