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.

Sunny, quiet top-floor (with elevator) one-bedroom, 40 m2 (430 sq. ft) apartment in a leafy corner of Montparnasse (Metro Edgar Quinet) available from June 29th to late-August 2016 (dates flexible). It’s a stone’s throw from Luxembourg Gardens, as well as most academic institutions and libraries (EHESS, Reid Hall, Sciences Po, Sorbonne, etc.).

The bedroom faces a quiet courtyard, and is furnished with a Queen-size bed and ample closet space.

The kitchen is fully-equipped (gas range) and the bathroom has a shower / bathtub. There is a lovely little park at the foot of the building, and being on the top floor means the sounds of the nearby café terrasses never reach the apartment. Again, many attractions are within walking distance (Lux Gardens, Parc Montsouris, Saint-Germain-des-Près, the Seine). For the rest of the city, Montparnasse has several metro lines (4, 6, 12, 13). 1000€/month, including utilities.

(If the price is inexpensive, it’s because this is a last-minute request and I would very much like to rent it before I leave in a week!)

Again, dates are flexible and photos (plus neighbourhood suggestions) are available upon request. Please contact me at christophrsilva@gmail.com or +33 6 65 10 58 12 for further information.

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
