FAQs

  • How much does it cost to rent the apartment?

    The weekly rental fee for the apartment is 920 euros (7 nights). Additional nights are prorated. Contact us for longer stays, we will work with you.
  • How much is it if I stay 9 nights?
    The apartment is rented at a prorated rate after the first week.
    9 nights = weekly rental of 920 euros + two prorated nights = 1,183 euros.

  • How much is it if I only need 6 nights?
    The apartment is rented for a minimum of 7 nights. So even if you only need 6 nights, the charge is still 920 euros.

    As this is a private property, you need to abide by the rules of the building and no loud noises should be tolerated after 10pm. Have fun in the apartment, but please be mindful of your neighbors: they are not on vacation and noise tolerance by Parisians is way lower than in most large cities!

    But of course! You are free to cook and even to experiment! The kitchen is small, yet every effort was made to design it as a fully functional and modern kitchen ☺
