Help with Paris Apartment Rental for ONE MONTH in January and Feb 2013

Jump to last reply

Hi All!

It has been a while since I've been on these forums! I took a hiatus from traveling and trip planning ever since my husband and I set the date for our wedding, but now that it's finally over, we're back at it again! So exciting! :)

We have a unique opportunity to go away for more than 2 weeks so we decided to spend 31 days in Paris (Jan 14th through Feb 14th). We chose Paris because we live in Manhattan and wanted a similar city that has different neighborhoods to explore and tons of things to do. I've received recommendations for Le Marais, which people have compared to West Village, so naturally I am drawn to this neighborhood because it is my favorite.

Our ideal apartment would have the following:
+ Beautiful interior, sunny, with open floor plan
+ On a nice quiet street in a cute neighborhood
+ A juliette window/balcony with a view of some sort
+ Doesn't exceed $3,500 for the month

There are a few apartments that we're considering so we need the input of the ever-so-knowledgeable Fodorities and Paris lovers before we make a decision:

1. 4th Pompidou Le Marais - Rue Saint Martin Apt
http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p2024089

PROS: open floor plan (I can see us really enjoying being in this apt on a lazy day and cooking in that kitchen with goodies from the market)
CONS: no balcony (may not really matter since it will be cold anyway), no city view, the most expensive option, but we're willing to splurge

2. 3rd Marais - Rue Caffarelli Apt
http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p901601

PROS: least expensive option, sunny, homey feeling
CONS: modern and not parisian looking at all (I like Haussmanian style), kitchen is detached from living space

3. 15th Vaugirard - Place du General Beuret Apt
http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p959415

PROS: good floor plan, looks super comfortable, spacious and reasonably priced
CONS: don't know too much about this neighborhood

4. 18th Montmartre - Rue Andre Barasacq Apt
http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p947421a

PROS: amazing views of the city, duplex, has a balcony
CONS: don't know too much about this neighborhood

I would appreciate any thoughts or feedback on either the apartments and/or neighborhoods! Also would be open to any other apartments people have stayed at and really enjoyed!
