Picking an Area in Paris-- short term rentals, One month at a time

Jump to last reply

I need help. My fiance and I are moving to EU for a bit starting in August. Our first 3 months are to be in France, specifically, Paris. My inclination is to stay away from the touristy places, but neither of us have been to Paris so that may be the wrong thing. I didn't mind Times Square the first time to NYC, but for a month? Absolutely not. We will be working and running our business in the States while there. Shops are extremely important to me (ie grocery, cafe, patisserie, boutiques) as we are not just there for a week. Personally, I like the finer things in life and will be spending some time on Rue Cambon, JJR, and St Honore. My finace is much, much more low key so we need a happy medium. We both love museums and culture. We have been approved for several flats in different areas and wanted to know the best option for us. 1. Passy- the most amazing balcony with an unobstructed view of the Eiffel. 2. Opera- beautiful Parisian loft with terrace. 3. St Germain-Odeon- Quirky Parisian, large but no terrace and top of the budget. 4. Madeline/St Honore- Modern, chic, terrace.

If we had 4 months here, I would just stay at all four of these. Every one is a beautiful and spacious for two people. We will be hosting guests from the States from time to time as well.
