2 Months One Place Paris or Outside of Paris

Jump to last reply

Need some opinions here from seasoned travelers, please. We will be going on our first trip to France. We are planning to stay in one place for two months due to our daughter playing a pro sport nearby (Neuville-aux-Bois). Our budget is quite low - no more than $2000 USD per month for lodging. We need an entire apartment - one bedroom - real bed -so that we may do some of our own cooking and have privacy for that length of time. We found a small cottage in Perthes for just over $1000 USD and there are some rentals in Paris that might work. Looking at the map Perthes is south of Paris and Neuville-aux-Bois is further south. Perthes does not seem to have any amenities - no shops. We will see our daughter only 5-10 times over our stay. We plan to visit Paris and do some mushrooming (where allowed) in the area and see other sites.
In your experience would you stay in Paris in a lesser apartment and be in the middle of everything or in Perthes and commute to Paris several days per week, driving to a station and taking the train in?
We plan to do this October and November of 2013 so there are fewer rentals available due to late planning which was unavoidable.
Help!
