Some of the best areas for holiday rentals in Paris include the neighbourhood around the Louvre Museum, the area around the Champs Elysees, and the Isle de La Cite, site of Notre Dame cathedral. In fact if you are renting an apartment or house in Paris, your biggest decision may be deciding which area, or arrondissement of the city to stay in, and some initial research is a must. Keep in mind that holiday rentals tend to cost more in the central areas of Paris, and prices are lower in the outlying arrondissements. One of the most popular outlying areas is Montmartre, once the haunt of artists such as Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec, and the area still retains much of its charm. Regardless of where you stay in Paris, the city’s excellent metro and bus system can get you anywhere else quickly and easily.
