The capital of France is equally appealing to students and professionals interested in fields as diverse as the arts, design, film, architecture and engineering. The city lies on the River Seine and is divided into 20 districts or arrondissements which are either on the Right or Left bank of the river. Many neighbourhoods, like the Marais or Canal Saint-Martin, have unique characteristics that enhance their appeal, but every arrondissement has its own magic. In general, Paris apartments for long term rent near the Champs-Elysees, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and l'Arc de Triomphe are more expensive. You can expect to pay €3,000 for a 1-bedroom apartment in the 1st or 8th arrondissements. Meanwhile, a comparable property in Bercy might cost closer to €1,500 per month. Wherever you choose to stay, an excellent public transport system, comprised of the Metro, buses and the Seine river boats known as 'le batobus', makes it easy to get around. Whether you are looking for student accommodation in Paris or furnished apartments, Nestpick has the perfect spot for you.
Straddling the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, le Marais is one of the city's most vibrant and exciting districts. Its energy attracts singles, couples and the LBGT community who are enchanted by the narrow streets, which can be traced back to medieval times. Fortunately these were left untouched by the former Emperor Napoléon, when he decided to remodel the city, giving it the characteristic wide boulevards found elsewhere. Le Marais is marked by boutique stores, galleries and museums, and is also considered to be “the Jewish Quarter” of Paris.
The sought-after 10th arrondissement neighbourhood of Canal Saint-Martin lies nestled between Republique and Gare du Nord - perfect for students and professionals who want easy access to the UK via the Eurostar. The canal with its quaint iron footbridges is a haven for locals and musicians during the summer. Whilst not as expensive as more central districts, furnished apartments near Quai de Jemmapes and Quai de Valmy can be pricey.
The impressive Ministry of Economy and Finance building situated in Bercy / Nation is often simply called 'Bercy'. The district “Bercy” is of one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city and is located in the 12th arrondissements. If you are searching apartments for rent in Paris, then Bercy is ideal for families who would like to live in an attractive area and features “Le Parc Bercy”, le “Chateau de Bercy”, and the Frank-Gehry-designed Cinémathèque Française.
The highest part of the city, the Butte de Montmartre is defined by the dazzling white Basilica de Sacré-Cœur. It’s also home to the famous Moulin Rouge and the only vineyard in the city. Luckily, despite its various attractions, rooms for rent in Montmartre are surprisingly affordable and it's worth investigating further.
