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.

Excellently situated, it offers access to métro lines 1, 2, 6, and 9 and RER A, bikes, buses and taxis, all just out the door. On the 4th floor, with elevator, it has an entryway/hallway, living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and spacious closet. The living room overlooks the Place, pretty Parisian facades and a tree-lined avenue. The bedroom overlooks a green, grassy space below (it's quiet and calm, not over a street). Internet/wifi, telephone and TV are included. Electricity is at the renter's expense for longer stays (lighting, heating, hot water, stovetop). Close to Bastille, Père Lachaise and the Bois de Vincennes and its castle. Seven quick métro stops from the Louvre. €1500/ month. Shorter stays possible; please inquire about pricing.
