Another Paris apartment and Navigo Dcouverte thread

Jump to last reply

Although we’ve made NO reservations for our vacation in April/May yet, I’ve amassed a list of apartments in Paris (and London), tossing what didn’t appeal to me or didn’t fit the bill. Once Husband reviews and narrows what he doesn’t like, I’m hoping for a shorter list to ask about.

Is parisattitude.com a “good” option? I see quite a few with no reviews, which makes me hesitate about them. The listed costs include agency fees. Admittedly, most of the places in our budget are rather plain, but they would be at that level regardless of agency/listing, I’m assuming.


About Navigo Decouverte: We will be taking the eurostar on a Monday, getting to Paris early afternoon. For this reason, I’m considering getting the ND instead of buying a carnet. Also, we plan on going to both Versailles and Disney. The Visite Card doesn’t even appear a viable option compared to these two.

A week ND for zones 1-5 is 34.40 E (+5 E for the card), while Versailles is 8.20 E and Disney is 13.40 E (total 21.60 E). Subtracting gives 17.8 E--or roughly 10 trips during that week. This would include our initial trip from Gare du Nord to our hotel and likely getting to/from the RER stations for Versailles and Disney--likely 3 trips out of 10 already, if we stayed very close to either RER station. It wouldn’t include our last Monday nor Tuesday’s travel to CDG--those would have to be separate. Can’t have everything, right?

The difference between buying ND cards and buying RER-tickets+carnet seems to be rather small, and going more to personal preference rather than cost. Provided, of course, that we don’t lose the ND.

Have I analyzed this correctly? The differences lessening, primarily because we are able to take advantage of the Monday arrival and staying the entire week?

I suspect I will be posting more threads at time approaches, though I will be searching other threads for answers first. As I’ve posted elsewhere here, I tend to front-load (or overkill, if you prefer) my research and prep.
