Freshly-baked baguettes; daily strolls through picturesque neighbourhoods; long lunches in al fresco cafes – living like a local in Paris is one of the ultimate travel fantasies. And, when you ditch the hotel in favour of a holiday-style apartment, you not only get more space but the chance to discover less touristy corners and play chic Parisian, from exploring markets to romantic strolls along the Seine. Check out the best holiday apartments, all bookable with Culture Trip.

Montmartre Apartments – Matisse

4.7/5 (12 Reviews)

One of the most romantic corners of Paris, Montmartre captures imaginations with its historic cobbled walkways, artist-cluttered squares and opulent white basilica, Sacré-Coeur. While this one-bedroom apartment, sleeping four, might be named after one of the most famous French artists, its style has more to do with the church – think alabaster-hued walls, cabinets and furniture. There’s just a hint of grey and black here and there on kitchenette tiles and Juliet balcony railings.

The perfect love nest for two, this studio apartment in the central Marais district allows you to live like a Parisian: morning croissants in street-side cafes, strolls through busy markets, browsing trendy designer clothing and homeware boutiques. Set in a typical Parisian building, the decor might be simple and homely but with a neighbourhood this chic you’ll hardly be indoors long enough to notice.

When you can stroll to the headquarters of Hermès, you know you’re in a posh part of town. These one and two-bedroom apartments, sleeping four to six, are close to some of the city’s most sought-after shopping, as well as the Palais Garnier opera house and Arc de Triomphe. Proper kitchens and washer-dryers mean you can self-cater with ease, saving cash to splurge on macarons at the local (original) branch of patisserie Ladurée.

Location, location, location: you’re a croissant away from Sainte-Chapelle, Notre-Dame and the Pompidou Centre, plus Châtelet station where trains will take you anywhere in the city in no time. Ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments (sleeping four to six), these window-lined art deco apartments are decorated in splashes of trendy coral or pale mint green. Prints of tropical plants add interest to the walls.

Apartments WS Hôtel de Ville – Musée

3.1/5 (41 Reviews)

If you’re in Paris for a flying visit, this location lets you pack in the sightseeing as Hôtel de Ville, the Pompidou Centre and the Louvre are all within walking distance. Ranging from studios to two bedrooms, the apartments come in a rainbow of styles (think patterned pink wallpaper versus monochrome geometric). The decor is on trend but the structure is atmospherically old: think juliet balconies and panelled doors.

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Foodie alert! This neighbourhood is home to some of the city’s coolest restaurants and wine bars, including Septime, Clamato and Mokonuts, so it might take an iron will to stay in and cook. But if you do fancy catering, this one-bedroom apartment, sleeping up to four, has what’s needed in the form of a kitchenette, hob and kettle. Opening onto a leafy courtyard, it also gives you access to something rare in Parisian apartments: outdoor space.

    With its covetable homeware shops, fashion labels and quaint restaurants, it’s not hard to love the Marais. And in a prime location in the heart of it, these studio and one-bedroom apartments, accommodating two to four (the latter with a loft-style sleeping space), let you take advantage of it. The bold use of colour – burnt orange, turquoise and mustard yellow – feel appropriate given the proximity of the Pompidou Centre art gallery.

    After a stay with an olde-worlde feel? This Marais one-bedroom apartment, sleeping two, pulls out the stops with its exposed stone wall and giant windows overlooking a typical Parisian courtyard. That’s not to say this place is stuck in the past; modern kitchenette, geometric bathroom tiling and a velvety blue reading chair make it feel distinctly 2020s. Make the most of the location and snag a freshly baked bagel on nearby Rue de Rosiers in the morning before the tourists arrive.
