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. Temporary sublet of a nice one-bedroom apartment in Paris 11th arrondissement (rue du faubourg saint-Antoine, Metro Faidherbe-Chaligny), near to Bastille. It is available on February, March and April (flexible dates if you are interested in a shorter stay).

I wish to rent a 40 m2 duplex (two floors of 20 m2). The apartment is fully furnished and located in a charming stone-paved courtyard. The neighbourhood is full of arts and crafts studios in a very trendy living area with restaurants, shops and bars.

On the first floor, there are an outfit kitchen and a living room and WC. On the top floor there a large bedroom and a bathroom.

The apartment and the courtyard are very calm, completely isolated from the avenue.

The only neighbours are a kind young couple with children.
