4BR Apt in London for extended family

Has anyone had particularly good luck with, and could you recommend, a specific 4BR apartment in London (& Paris)?

I'm taking my extended family (nuclear 4, both grandmothers, and a cousin) to London and Paris next summer. I'm looking for a single apartment in each city that can hold us all. My budget is $2000-3000 for a week.

I have used a number of management sites for other trips, but with this many people's fates in my hands, I'd prefer to avoid taking my chances on basing a reservation on a few digital photos. Any suggestions for reasonably priced (okay, cheap) jewels?

You'll might have to pay toward the upper end of your budget (or even a bit more) for 4 bdrms. $2000 (£1000) is about mid priced for just 2-3 bedrms in nice/central areas. Also - 4 bedrooms places are pretty scarce but many 3 bdrm flats are set up to sleep 7 or 8.

here are a few on vrbo to get you started:

http://www.vrbo.com/109206 (only 3 bdrm but sleeps 8)

http://www.vrbo.com/111049 (also only 3 bdrm - sleeping up to 8)

Good morning....I have used (and mentioned many times) London Serviced Apartments, which offer a wide selection of apartments in London in 3 price groups. Personally, I have stayed at The Mansions (economy price group) in Earl's Court and was very happy. They have 4 bedroom/3 bath apartments, so, it might be worth checking out.

ginny: That flat is £340 a night - far above the OP's budget . . . . .

Thank you for the suggestions. I"m only starting to look for larger apartments. I realize my starting budget may be unrealistic and might need to be adjusted upward.
