Explore the Real Parisian Properties in Paris Sharing

By Paris Sharing Subscribe to RSS | December 13th 2011 | Views:

Finding a comfortable and affordable place to stay in Paris is a major challenge for families and small groups. now makes it far easier, by offering real Parisian homes for rent or exchange while their owners are away. The system benefits both parties. As a guest, you are more likely to find a spacious, well-equipped and pleasantly decorated home away from home. For Parisians who "share" their home, it represents extra revenues to allow them to travel more themselves.

Since most of the accommodations offered are primary homes, there is a fabulous choice of uniquely Parisian properties, including lofts, houseboats, townhouses, and Haussman-style apartments. Some of these have been featured on TripAdvisor and acclaimed by guests. Prices range from 70 to 500 Euro/night, all-included. The most expensive accommodations usually sleep more guests, of course, meaning that the cost per person remains far less than a hotel of equivalent standing. In addition, the price per night decreases the longer you stay. A week’s stay offers 10% off, a month or more is half price.

Another reason for which is able to offer more spacious accommodations is that it does not limit its offer to the center of Paris. The outer arrondissements (the 10th to 20th) also have much to offer tourists. The dense metro network means that the center of the city is usually no more than 15min away. If you're not convinced, you might consider reading this article on the ParisSharing blog. It debunks numerous myths that lead tourists to limit their accommodation search to the center of the city, pushing up prices as a result.

One such off-the-beaten-path neighborhood is the Butte-aux-Cailles, bordering the Latin Quarter and Chinatown. A recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald was submitted by a ParisSharing guest, an Australian family who spent a week in a ParisSharing loft located in this neighborhood. It describes the experience of having a historically unique Parisian home entirely to one's family, a comfortable and convenient base for discovering local life in addition to all the must-see monuments. The only inconvenience: kids like homes with other kid's toys and sometimes prefer to stick around and play rather than sight-see!

A unique feature of ParisSharing is that the same hosts who offer their home for vacation rental can also offer it for exchange. When searching for a place to stay in Paris, you therefore have the option of offering your own home in exchange for the one you’ve chosen. If it doesn’t work out, you can still rent the host’s property.

For travelers who prefer to have contact with Parisian hosts during the stay, or who are looking for the least expensive accommodation option, ParisSharing also offers a growing selection of Bed & Breakfasts and guestrooms. These offer a private bedroom and bathroom, and some may also offer you access to the living room and kitchen.

Regardless of the accommodation option you choose, the online booking and payment process is simple and secure. You can use your credit card and do not have to worry about cash transfers, bank wires, or getting your security deposit back. ParisSharing insures that you receive a warm welcome, and even offers extra concierge-type services to personalize your stay.
