Caution: A number of con artists have been using this site to search for targets.  One of the main tactics is to ask for payment to be wired to an account and then deactivating their email address.  This is still a relatively rare occurrence but it has been happening recently enough to warrant this advisory note. 

The Editors of H-France advise you to use caution when interacting with prospective landlords overseas, even if they advertise on this site.  Most reputable landlords can provide references from previous tenants or accept payment through a more protected means such as Paypal.

Paris rental for academic year 2016-2017
Are you a faculty member or dissertation researcher looking for a Paris apartment for the 2016-2017 American academic year--defined as August 11, 2016 through May 15, 2017?  My apartment in the Oberkampf district of the 11th arrondissement will be available for a single rental between those dates.   A September rather than an August start date is possible, but the May 15 end date is fixed.  8-month minimum rental.  The apartment, 42 sq. meters, completely furnished, 2 rooms, full kitchen, large bath is spacious for one person; it can also accommodate a couple (double bed); it is not suitable for two roommates. On the fifth floor (no elevator), the apartment is light and sunny. The living room looks out on a quiet street and has a western exposure. The bedroom looks onto a spacious courtyard (also quiet) and has an eastern exposure. The apartment has gas heat and comes with linens, dishes, a washing machine, a telephone, a television, and cable internet. Ikea-type furniture.  Well equipped with ample work space as well as bookcases, it is ideal for a visiting scholar. The neighborhood is wonderful: the building is on a small, quiet street off lively rue Oberkampf, which is lined with shops, markets, and cafés.  It is close to metro stations Parmentier, Oberkampf, and St. Ambroise (3 different lines). The Bastille is within walking distance.  I am looking for a mature, clean, responsible tenant.  Pets and smoking in the apartment are not allowed.  The rent, $1100 for a single person or $1300 for a couple, and the security deposit are payable in USD.  If you think this apartment and you might be a good match for each other, please send me an email to that effect.  Many H-France members have lived in this apartment in the past.  lmartens@hotmail.com
