On our last trip to Paris we decided to act like locals and rent an apartment. There were four of us (my mother was our companion for this trip), so staying in a hotel would require booking 2 rooms which would be more expensive and much less Parisian 🙂
So we checked the internet and came across a very nice site called Private Homes. We chose an apartment in the Marais area, close to the Bastille. Perfect location!
The onwer of the apartament didn’t get in touch with us until one week before the trip, but the guys at Private Homes assured us that everything was fine, which made us feel safe.
So there we were, having breakfast and dinner at home, eating a lot of baguettes, cheese…
Would we repeat this experience? In a heartbeat!
But of course, there are things to consider:
Are you willing to make your own bed everyday? Take out the trash? Not having room service?
If you answered yes to all the questions above, you are ready for this experience!
