Three of our luxury short-term rental apartments have gone long...meaning allowing rentals of three months to one year at long-term rates. This is your chance to score a luxury apartment at a bargain for your longer stays in the City of Light.
One is in the heart of Le Marais, another in the Haut Marais and the third in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Does it get better than that for the perfect Paris séjour?
The terms are slightly different for each, so pay attention! With any long-term lease of one year, there is a 30-day cancellation, so you need not worry about shorter stays and there is no penalty for such a cancellation. In addition, if you have the legal right to live in France (meaning having a long-stay visa or European passport, or other), you will have the ability to sublet the two one-year leased apartments up to four months per year to recuperate rental revenue when you're not there -- should you wish to travel!
All three apartments are owned by Expats. All three landlords are seeking Expat tenants just like you! Read on and don't hesitate to book now before it's too late!
Le Luxe d’Argent is a chic and modern one-bedroom apartment with plenty of old world charm. After a complete renovation in the spring of 2012, this jewel is ready to welcome you and your family and friends for a stay that you won’t soon forget.
The cool and sleek silver color scheme chosen by designer extraordinaire, Martine di Mattéo, has a real calming effect while the intelligent layout makes living there a pleasure.
The bedroom features a comfortable queen-size bed that can be made up as twins, and wrap-around closets for optimum use of space. Being situated on a small interior courette makes it ideal for a good night’s sleep.
Immediately adjacent to the bedroom is the contemporary bathroom where you will find double sinks, heated towel rack and a spacious glassed-in shower. It is also accessible directly from the primary rooms of the apartment. Like smart Paris apartments, a beautifully appointed powder room is separate and accessible from the entry hall.
The complete and functional kitchen has been equipped with a granite countertop and custom hand-made oak cabinetry which houses a dishwasher, microwave, conventional oven, four burner stove and refrigerator with freezer. There is also a Nespresso machine and toaster provided for your use. Dishes, glasses, cutlery, and cooking implements round out the inventory.
Within easy reach is the Corbusier-style glass and chrome dining table with four leather chairs. Here you can enjoy the gourmet meal that you created or just plan your day over coffee and croissants.
With its two large windows, the living room is bright and welcoming. Under a one-of-a-kind, Eiffel Tour themed painting by French artist, Pascal Amblard, sits the elegant sofa bed that transforms into a queen-size bed when needed. From here the 59-inch, flush-mounted flat-screen TV looms large for enjoyable viewing. Glass and chrome end and coffee tables to compliment a stylish chair complete this conversation, relaxing and entertaining space perfectly.
When not out enjoying the beautiful city, your entertainment needs are met with access to over 100 cable TV channels, several of which are in English. You can also make good use of the Bose iPod docking system and DVD player. Included with your stay is free access to the apartment’s WiFi connection as well as use of the telephone, which allows you to call land lines in over 100 countries as well as land lines and cell phones in the U.S. and Canada, at no cost.
Next to the powder room, in the entrance hallway is the laundry closet, with combination washer/dryer and portable drying rack. The apartment lacks nothing.

In the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Le Mabillon is in the perfect location to enjoy one of Paris’ most sought after locations. Upon entering the building it is immediately clear that this one is special. Completely restored and renovated, the common areas boast exposed stone walls and centuries old beams, beautifully illuminated with modern lighting. The anachronistic, modern glass elevator juxtaposes rather well with older parts of the building and waits to take you up to your Paris home.
The newly renovated apartment is every bit as stylish as its surroundings. From the entranceway, a hallway leads first to a bathroom with combined tub/rainfall shower, sink and toilet. Modern and elegant fixtures, a stone counter and a large mirror, make this room shine.
Continuing down the hallway one comes to the main part of the apartment. To the immediate left is a large closet with hanging space. Just past this is the kitchen area with refrigerator, two burner ceramic stove, full sized oven, microwave and several other small appliances that will allow you to be self-sustaining for as long as you need to be. The apartment is well equipped with dishes and glassware as well as utensils and cooking implements.
Opposite the kitchen is the sleeping area, with its inviting King sized bed which can be converted to two twins. The bed is adorned with luxury fabrics and ample pillows. Surrounding the head of the bed is built in cabinetry, which will mean that you will never have storage issues.
The entertainment center with flat screen TV and DVD player can be enjoyed from the bed or from the comfortable sofa on the opposite wall from the bed. There are over one hundred channels available, several of them in English.
Included in your rental rate is high speed wireless internet and unlimited free phone calls to over 50 countries, including cell phones in the US and Canada.
For your dining pleasure, there is a table for two in the corner of the apartment beside an antique mirrored divider. The plush Louis XV chairs will allow you to comfortably linger over meals.
The apartment has two large windows through which the sun shines, and is equipped with blackout curtains to allow you a very dark sleeping environment if so desired.
* One-year lease minimum, monthly rent: 1400€ + 200€ utilities (The utilities cost will be adjusted at the end of the initial lease term, for the part that exceeds the 200€ per month.) * Initial payment: 2 months of security deposit and first month’s rent * The Taxe d’Habitation (Approx. 1,000€ payable by whomever lives in the apartment on January 1st) * Renters insurance * 504€ regulated agency fee (18€ per square meter, based on the apartment size of 28m2)
Modeled after a typical Parisian bistro, Chez Antoine Paris is a completely renovated apartment located in the very heart of Le Marais. The location could not be more convenient with the Saint-Paul Métro entrance nearby and everything Le Marais has to offer at your feet. You will have non-stop fun staying at Chez Antoine – just what is intended by the extraordinary décor by Interior Architect, Martine di Mattéo.
With Parisian coach lights providing the illumination throughout, centuries old, original, exposed wood beams and a combination of tiled and parquet flooring, the accent is on charm! Entering this first floor apartment the first thing you will see is the oak bar which stands in the corner to the left, in front of a series of glass shelves with mirrored backing. A collection of beer glasses lines the shelves invitingly. The bar does double duty as a workspace and comes with a barstool.
To the right is a bistro table with seating for 4 people, on a red leather banquette and two authentic bistro chairs. A bit further along, through an entrance framed by exposed original beams, is a corner kitchen. This extremely efficient space contains a refrigerator with freezer, a small dishwasher, microwave oven, toaster oven, combination washer/dryer, stovetop with two burners, sink and cabinetry. Also included are a complete array of kitchenware (all cooking utensils, dinner and tableware, serving pieces) an electric coffee maker/espresso maker and electric tea kettle.
Just past the kitchen is the reading area with padded window seats, sandwiched between a well- stocked bookshelf and a stately fireplace (non-functioning) with large antique mirror. A handcrafted wooden closet with etched glass provides well thought-out storage. The windows are equipped with wooden shutters that open and close easily as needed.
From here one enters the living room with its three-seat sofa that converts into a high-end double bed, and handcrafted coffee table made from antique Haussmannian iron. Also in iron is the one-of-a-kind console made from an original Haussmannian balcony grill and topped by a beautiful arched mirror. On the wall above the sofa is an original painting by Parisian artist, Pascal Amblard, depicting a Parisian café from days gone by. The 42-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player sits on the opposite wall.
Exit the living room into the hall where you will discover a marble and glass bathroom with a very unique and handsome columnar sink, toilet and shower with glass doors. The heated towel rack will quickly dry the abundant towels that are provided with the apartment and warm the bathroom to cozy.
Past the bathroom is an ample-sized bedroom with new queen-size bed that can be separated into twins, a flat-screen TV with DVD player, made to measure wooden closet with decorated crystal panels and bistro handles. The headboard of the bed is actually the second on-theme painting by Pascal Amblard -- this one in colors to match the bedroom décor. Beside the bed is a café table and chair, perfect for catching up on late night emails. Unusual for a one-bedroom apartment, Au Vieux Paris has an en suite powder room with toilet and sink.
Both the bedroom and the living room are equipped with brand new built-in air conditioning units that are sure to keep you cool if your time in Paris heats up.
Included with the apartment is cable television, with over 100 channels on both TVs, a well-stocked video library, WiFi and free telephone with answering machine. Long-distance calls to land lines in over 100 countries are free. This extends to calls to cell phones in the US and Canada.
* Minimum 3 months, monthly rent: 3,400€ including utilities, taxes, insurance, agency fees * Initial payment: 25% of the total lease, with the remaining balance payable in three parts over the life of the lease; all remaining balance due in advance of the last month * 2,000€ security deposit
Despite its small size, this apartment in the upper Marais has been recently transformed into a space by Interior Architect Martine di Mattéo that lacks nothing for a comfortable stay in Paris. Located on the second floor of a centuries-old building that is typical of the district, it’s on the top floor under a sloping roof with lots of windows facing three directions and lots of light, but complete privacy. When you enter the “petite porte d’entrée,” you will immediately feel the charm, but elegance of a well-designed and fully equipped “aerie.”
