“Paris is always a good idea!” Audrey Hepburn articulates it in the aptest way. Whether looking for a romantic hideout, an aristocratic mansion or just going a less-ordinary way, Airbnb offers a wonderful platter of choices to aid you in living your Parisian dream.
When it comes to Paris, it is more about feeling the place rather than just being a witness to it. In one of the surveys conducted by Airbnb, it was found that 93 percent of its users expressed their desire to live like a local while visiting and 70 percent opted for Airbnb accommodations that were not in the prime hotel districts of Paris. The city is also said to have more than 10,500 hosts, with more than 80 percent renting out space in their residence. Therefore, that allows you to easily find a place that gives an opportunity to experience a city that has countless movies, books, and poems composed in its honor.
Take your pick and navigate through the city like a local while soaking in as much of it as you can. Here are some of the most charming Airbnb vacation rentals in Paris to consider.
If you are looking for one of the most convenient long-term vacation rentals in Paris that makes commuting easy, has gorgeous views, is in a very Parisian neighborhood, and has a host that welcomes you with fine wines, chocolates, and roses, this listing fulfills all criteria. Also, the building is in an old-fashioned Parisian style, which will make you feel like a local. The entrance hall of the building is beautiful and characteristically ultra-Parisian. The Airbnb apartment is like a piece of well-restored Hausmann architecture, adorned by ashlar stone walls and vintage tiling. The 18th neighborhood gives easy access to popular tourist locations, with the flat being only 10 minutes from the Gare du Nord (by subway) and is well linked to all the airports. Simplon is the nearest metro station to the building. Situated on the top floor, with no other flat opposite to block the lovely view, this apartment is charming and cozy with sunlight streaming in all day long. In addition to the living room and the bedroom, there is also a well-furnished nursery with a bed for the baby, a changing table, toys, and a baby bath. Ideal for couples, with a baby or not, the nursery is separated from the living room by a wall with pretty workshop-style window panes and fitted with curtains. Now, who wouldn’t like to have this gorgeous starry view with fine French wine, chocolates, and cheese, or even just a fair share of freshly baked baguettes from local bakeries? The host of the house, being a musician, makes sure there is enough good music in the house so you have access to a stereo, speakers, and even gramophone records. What more do you need for a perfect romantic Parisian stay?
Beautiful view in an adorable apartment. Katie was very accommodating, and even left us flowers, wine and great travel tips! I would definitely stay there again. If you are looking for a real Parisian apartment and neighborhood, this is it! Rosebud
Flat perfect for living like a Parisian in Montmartre
Address: Paris 18,Île-de-France,France
Price: from 46 USD
Number of Guests: 2
Access: Flat is only 10 minutes from the Gare du Nord (by subway) which has good links to all the Paris airports
This picturesque flat does not draw attention to itself only for its magnificent decor but also for the great location. Located in the central area, and in one of the oldest parts of the city, it gives access to Palais-Royal gardens, the Louvre Museum, the Decorative Arts Museum, and the Grévin Museum in a few steps. Traditionally and architecturally rich, it gives a personalized museum-like-home experience in the heart of Paris. It is not every day that one gets to sleep in a wood-paneled bedroom. Built in 1770 by the Marquess of Chabanais, this place can boast of having original Louis XVI woodwork panels, with mirrors and Versailles-style old parquet. True to French tastes, the bedroom is not just rich in style and art, but it gives you a joy of living the old and timeless. It makes you sit and reminisce about the beauty of time that has been forgotten in today’s bustling life.
A pleasant stay in an authentic period room. Superb location and welcoming host who allowed early check-in and late check-out, thanks! (…) Max

If you fancy living in a penthouse apartment in the center of Paris, this clean and quiet vacation rental is a wonderful option without messing up your budget. The flat accommodates three people and is about 50 meters (164 feet) from Place de Trocadero, which provides a unique view of the Eiffel Tower. With most of Parisian charm and character, this place is also a spacious one which is not very likely in Paris. And unlike Paris, they have a small elevator, as well as large rooms. On the whole, this makes for a delightful and homey stay.
This was a beautiful apartment with everything I needed for a week. The little kitchen was well stocked and bed very comfortable. At the top and back of the building its so quiet that Paris disappears from your thoughts, but then reappears on the front doorstep every morning. Lou
