Paris: Decision Time On Apartments/ Arrondissements

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Paris for the first time this fall (early October) for our 20th anniversary. I have had a heck of a time finding the right place. Most of the apartments I've been interested in are booked. I need light, cleanliness but not sterility, and a real kitchen.
At the moment I am looking at a 1BR on Rue de La Huchette : http://www.flipkey.com/paris-condo-rentals/p397911/ and a slightly larger apartment on Rue Lafayette across from St. Vincent de Paul church: http://www.escalea-paris.com/en/apartment-paris/370/vacation-rental-paris.php. Can anyone comment on either the neighborhoods or the apartments? As it is our first time there is something compelling about being centrally located. But I have lived in big cities and have never enjoyed the most touristy parts of those cities. Rue Lafayette looks to be close enough to the action but far enough away to retreat at day's end. There is also about a $1K difference between the two so while it is not the deciding factor I need the benefit of Rue Lafayette to be worth the difference. Any suggestions or advice will be deeply appreciated. Merci.
