Holiday Flat in Paris
Does anyone know a nice 4 bedroomed holiday flat in central(ish) Paris, please? Looking for a long weekend for a group in March.

What's your budget (in Euro). So that's 3 nights? How many adults/children?


sheila Oct 29th, 2006 12:47 AM

Within limitation- say €2500- I'm prepared to pay what it takes. 7 adults- 23 couples and a single

Hey sheila,

You can't get 23 couples and a single into a 4-bedroom apt. :)


valtor Oct 29th, 2006 04:08 AM

So, 2500 euro / 3nights ~ 800 euro/ night / apartment.
That means 200 euro / bedroom. At this price you can look also for 4 studios in the same building. Maybe this is a better option, because if you take a 4 bedrooms flat I do not know how many bathroom do you have, and ithis can be a problem for 7 people.

I had the same reaction. Perhaps Sheila has some special reason for wanting to put 7 people together in 1 space, which I myself would be disinclined to do. It is obviously not for economy, since her budget is pretty lavish, particularly if she is not too exigent about location.

Sheila: Do you wish to respond........

Perhaps some will be suspended from the ceiling on parachute holsters.

I have seen hotel rooms where there was more vertical space than horozontal, e.g. the Kensington Very Close Hotel.

We had one room where the bathroom was so narrow that I could touch the walls both left and right while standing in the center. The room itself was probably 8 feet wide. More of a slit than a room.

All very amusing folks, but hardly helpful:):)

I apologise for the typo. Just wait, ira; I'll get my own back.

We're all good pals, and probably will eat in a bit. In my considerable experience, if you take studios or smaller units, you don't get a single big enough social space either to sit or to eat.

And you may think that's lavish, but have you SEEN the price of big flats in Paris???

There is a fairly current post on here by someone who found a 4-bedrm flat near the Nation metro stop, which looked pretty nice, and it was a good size place, also. It was only around 200 euro a night, as I recall. I think she found it on vrbo, but you can probably find that post.

Christina Oct 29th, 2006 09:45 AM

This was the apt discussed

I guess it's around 250 euro per night in March.

sheila Oct 29th, 2006 10:48 AM

Thank you, Christina. I'd seen that and was considering it. I'll see if I can find the post.

This website has lots of 4 Bedrooms. You might write and ask if any of them would rent for 3 nights in March.

We stayed in a lovely, spacious 2 bedroom apartment in the Marais Bastille area of Paris (will sleep 6)- right near the Metro with views of the Eifel Tower. The owner also has a studio apartment right next door which I have not seen but believed to sleep 2-3. Not quite 4 bedrooms, but you may find this works as the 2 bedroom apartment has a nice spacious lounge/dining area.
Website is and the second apartment is apartment 55325.

Good Luck.

Thanks, guys. Now we're cookin'!

Christina Oct 31st, 2006 10:48 AM

oh, I really like that one in Passy just posted. I don't get that one on VRBO near rue d'Assas, though. It's very expensive (about 700 euro a day) and they talk about how luxurious it is, etc., and don't have a single photo on there, do they? They don't seem to understand marketing very well.

Friends and I stayed in 2 Paris Perfects apartments this summer. They have added a couple apartments that are fairly large.

They're not inexpensive, but they are all beautifully done and their kitchens are better stocked than my townhome! Most (if not all) are in the 7th and there are lots of take out places, restaurants, markets, etc., etc. The Picard store is my ultimate dream! There is one on rue St. Dominique and it has everything from appetizers to dessert in a frozen state to purchase, take home, and heat for dining in.

Enjoy whatever you find!


JeanneB Nov 1st, 2006 08:21 AM

Those large Paris Perfect apts would be, indeed, <i>perfect</i>. I didn't include them because I don't think they'll rent for fewer than 7 days. But it's worth writing and asking!
