Paris is a beautiful, historic, and pedestrian-friendly city full of world-class culture, prestigious universities, extraordinary art, and delicious cuisine. With so many appealing things to do, you’ll probably want to find a place to stay for a month or longer to experience it all.

The glamour of old Paris in a 2-bedroom Ternes rental
Starting our list of top-rated apartments is this 5-star rated furnished apartment in a luxurious residential area of Paris. This 2-bedroom furnished apartment is located in an 18th-century building in Ternes, and the historic significance of the building comes through in all of the apartment’s small details: stunning crown molding, antique parquet hardwood floors, and a beautiful stained-glass window in the dining area. The space is also decorated with care, featuring a unique collection of artwork and classically elegant furnishings.
If you want the antique charm but don’t want to forgo any modern amenities, don’t worry—this apartment is also outfitted with a fully updated kitchen featuring all the major appliances you need to cook, a personal washing machine and dryer, a 24-hour concierge, and even a parking space available upon request. Plus, the building is accessible; it has an elevator, which is a rarity in old Paris buildings that are known for their stairs.
However, what really sets this apartment apart from the rest is the full experience of staying here. The neighborhood of Ternes around the apartment is one of the fanciest residential districts of Paris and experiences limited tourist traffic, making it a great place to capture the experience of living like a local that we strive to provide to all of our Paris clients.
Because the neighborhood is so close-knit, you can also expect a welcoming vibe from neighbors and the apartment’s owner, as evidenced by this review from our past client Seksom S. of the United States:
“This is a place to go to immerse yourself in a truly Parisian experience. This is NOT a touristy quartier. Rather, it has great local markets/merchants, an urban-neighborhood feel, and gives you the feel of being a local. The owners are warm people, and made the stay pleasant for us. The neighbors are pleasant. Many invited us into their homes to become better acquainted, thereby enhancing the appeal of living in the building.”
If you want to become better acquainted with Ternes, be sure to make yourself visible! Introduce yourself to the neighbors, then get out and about and visit all the charming stores, cafes, flower shops, and restaurants in this scenic neighborhood.
A calm and contemporary studio in Paris’s center

It’s also the home of this easygoing contemporary studio in Les Halles, which is one of our top-rated apartments! The incredible value of this rental comes through not only with the affordable rent, but with the neat, compact space and central location. The apartment adds touches of Parisian style and cheer where it can, including in the bright tile of the kitchenette, the exposed wooden ceiling beams, and the French-style windows.
Our clients also have praised the apartment’s well-maintained appearance, welcoming owner, and high function in a compact space. Lindsy F. of the United States sums it up with her review of this top-rated studio:
“I arrived to find the most welcoming landlord. The apartment which gets wonderful sun light was… very clean with every amenity that I could need, Internet, cable, washer/dryer. If ever I had a problem, I could contact the landlord… The neighborhood was in the perfect location to take advantage of all Paris has to offer. I would highly recommend this apartment, and any other from this owner, as you will feel very well taken care of and totally at home.”

As past tenant Hannah K. of the United States says, the apartment is an experience itself:
“Our apartment on Rue Pierre Nicole, in the 5eme, was spectacular. Although the pictures of the apartment are compelling, the actual apartment is much nicer than the pictures convey. The Parisian light dances over the window flower boxes, flooding the charming living room each afternoon. The scent of fresh bread and croissants wafted up each morning from the corner boulangerie, a few paces from the apartment. The owners… made us feel like family.”
