I'm planning a trip to Paris this summer with my nieces. Can you guys help me out by recommending a site that lists owners with apartments to rent?
I know that Google is my friend, but I'd like to hear from your personal experiences.
I used air bnb to rent an apartment in Berlin and had a very good experience.
People use the site to rent out entire flats, not just bed and breakfast style rentals. Do a search based on your desired neighborhood and price range and read some renter reviews. Have a great trip!
I used this service several years back and it worked well.
Thanks for the recommendations everyone. I'll check these out.
Homeaway.com is the best site. I used them in Paris and got an amazing apartment for a great price. The owner was very accommodating and I had the best time ever. Will never use a hotel again with so many awesome apartments available
I got an e-mail from my agent which said the city is trying to outlaw apartment rentals.
Apparently vacation rentals are raising apartment prices so Parisiens are being priced out of the local real estate market, although I suspect there is some kind of hotel lobby behind it.
So go now when you can get an apartment. Also Paris seems to book a year in advance, unlike other cities.
