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.

Je cherche une personne de confiance pour occuper mon appartement parisien de 70m2, où se trouvent mes livres et ma documentation.
Je vis en Suisse et je ne passe à Paris qu'une fois par mois (ou tous les deux mois), pendant deux-trois jours.
Il s'agit donc d'une location avec une "co-locataire" (moi-même, journaliste et docteure en anthropologie) très peu présente.
L'appartement se situe dans un petit quartier populaire (supermarchés, traiteurs japonais-chinois, supermarchés bio, tramway, cinéma, cirque électrique, etc) de la Mairie des Lilas. Par le métro direct : à 10 mn. de Belleville, à 23 mn. de Châtelet.
C'est un 2-3 pièces, meublé (lit, bibliothèque, tables, chaises, télévision), au 3e étage (asc.), très lumineux avec balcon filant dans toutes les pièces. Il se constitue d'une chambre et d'un double séjour avec parquet et fausses moulures, d'une cuisine séparée (équipée d’un frigo, lave-linge, four à micro-ondes et vaisselle fournie), d'une salle de bains baignoire + WC séparés. Orientation sud avec de la lumière inondant chaque pièce par les portes vitrées donnant sur le balcon.
Le loyer mensuel, charges comprises (edf, Internet, eau) est de 765 euros.
L’appartement est non fumeur.
Location pour une durée minimum de 1 an, si possible plusieurs années.
Disponible à partir du 7 février 2018. Mes coordonnées: aniesu.giard@gmail.com

Paris Studio Available starting Jan 2018:
Newly renovated “Chambre de Bonne” studette in the 7th arrondissement. Sublet starts Jan 1, end date is negotiable, but a minimum 5 month stay is required. The place is around the corner from the Eiffel Tower, a block from the Metro (Ecole Militaire). Near the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Invalides. Full-size bed (140cm),small shower and kitchenette. Closet space and room under the bed for suitcases. I am looking ideally to rent to a student or a young responsible person.
This is a "chambre de bonne" meaning it is a very small studio apartment. Couples will not be comfortable here because it WILL feel cramped for two people. I have a small kitchenette with a small toaster oven and two burners and everything I need on a regular basis to cook healthy meals. Shelves and places to hang your clothing are available. The private shower/bathroom is in the apartment, but the toilet is shared in the hallway. A few other respectful neighbors who live on the floor use it too, and it is cleaned regularly by the landlady of the building. The studio is on the 7th floor, accessible via the service elevator to the 6th floor, and then one must walk one flight. Thus it is not wheelchair accessible. The walls are not very thick so please respect my neighbors. I do not have air conditioning and I am on the top floor, so in the hottest days, you will want to turn on the fan I provide. Shower door is slim, not recommended for overweight guests.
This is the heart of Paris, a beautiful residential, if traditional district with art-deco buildings, terrace cafés, located right next to the rue Cler, the classic "market street." The place is literally 1 minute from the metro station, with a supermarket across the street, and a laundry 600m away. The Eiffel Tower is in the backyard, I actually go jogging around the Champ de Mars myself and you can too if you like to jog. The apartment is walking distance to the Invalides, Musée d'Orsay, or the Palais de Tokyo, and a longer walk away from the Champs-Elysees, and The Louvre. The place has beautiful views on Invalides and Sacré Coeur.
Rent: 700 euros a month. This includes a fibre wifi connection and energy bill, but guests with excessive energy use will be surcharged. No pirate downloading of anything. Security deposit and skype or in-person interview will be required. References may also be requested.
After you've read all this contact me with any questions you might have about the space, and to set up a time to talk.
