Searching for an apartment to rent in France is not an easy task. You need to take into account all the nuances of the French mindset and legislation relating to issues of real estate, competently complete all documents and be careful signing the agreement.
Quartier Latin not only helps you find a suitable option, but also accompanies the whole deal, checking documentation and the reliability of the owner. Our goal is to make your stay in France comfortable and help you avoid unpleasant surprises.
As you might guess, living independently in a rented apartment is one of the most comfortable options. You become the fully-fledged owner of your home and feel like a real resident of Europe! You are absolutely free to invite guests (and the French adore inviting guests), your daily routine and living environment. Still, it’s important not to forget, that you are, firstly, bound by the obligations under the agreement with the owner, and, secondly, in order to be able to rent an apartment, you will face classic French paperwork.
What’s more, the main concern of all tenants is most likely unfair realtors and crafty owners. In the field of real estate, there are indeed some swindlers. They are found all over the world, including France.
Quartier Latin will help you select an excellent option, verify all documents and, if necessary, organise a shuttle service to your new residence. We only work with verified owners and our database of available options is full of the most interesting and advantageous proposals. But, even if none of these apartments suits you, or you're going to go to a small town in the province where there are not many options, we will help you to find a unique choice, specifically for your case.
For students going to France on language courses, as a rule, the language schools have rental offers of their own. If they do not suit you or the school has no such service, we can help in this situation.
