Paris is one of Europe's most renowned cities, as its world-class shopping, dining, architecture and culture have wooed travelers for centuries. The streets of Paris itself can be considered museum exhibits, as sculptures adorn nearly every street corner, while building are routinely engraved with expert craftsmanship. At the same time, a city law prevents any building from being over 4 stories high so that the sun can shine all throughout the city. With so much charm, it's no wonder that Paris vacation rentals are a popular accommodation option year-round.
Paris is divided into several arrondissements, or districts, and each has its own unique benefits. For example, the famed 8th arrondissement is home to the Champs ElysÃ©e, a large street on which some of Paris's best shopping and dining can be found. The 5th and 6th arrondissements, also known as the Quartier Latin, is known for its vibrant student life, given how many universities are in the area. The 18th and 14th arrondissement, Montmartre and Montparnasse, respectively, are known as popular areas for artists. Since each arrondissement is so unique, it is advisable for travelers to research each one and decide which area is best suited to their needs and personality.
Of course, Paris is also home to a high number of hotels. Because real estate is at such a premium in Paris though (due partly to the aforementioned limit on the number of stories per building), most hotel rooms are very small, and can still be rather expensive, especially if one is staying in one of the more touristy areas, such as the 8th arrondissement. Thankfully, like other Ile-de-France vacation rentals , Paris rentals are usually available for rent year-round, meaning you can get a 2-bedroom apartment for the same price as a cramped hotel room. Most of these rentals consist of apartments, and staying in these building will help you feel as though you are a real Parisian. Also, most rental owners will be more than happy to help you navigate the city, and may even have suggestions for cafes and restaurants where you can get an amazing meal at local, rather than tourist, prices.
