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.

"Chambre de Bonne" Sublet in Paris from January ---> December 2018 (flexible)
I am subletting my apartment, a small, newly renovated studio/ studette in the 7th arrondissement. Sublet starts Jan 1, end date is negotiable, but a minimum 5 month stay is required. Ideally someone can take the place for the entire year. 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.
More: 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. Ample shelving and clothing storage. 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.
Location: This is the heart of Paris, in the 7th arrondissement in a beautiful residential art-deco building. The apartment is located right next to the la rue Cler, the classic "market street," and it is literally 1 minute from the metro station, with a supermarket across the street, and a laundry 600m away. The southern end of the Champ de Mars, where the Eiffel Tower is, is a few blocks behind the apartment. 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.  I prefer longer-term stays, but I am flexible on the dates.
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. Contact: Mimi Luse mimiluse@gmail.com
