Choose between a furnished or an unfurnished rental in Paris

There are various factors to take into account before renting a property in Paris. Apartments vary considerably in age, quality and comfort. The “arrondissement”, or district, you will live in will play a large role in your rental experience. In Paris, like everywhere, location is key, and prices are largely fixed according to the area. Prices also reflect the level of comfort and quality, especially for furnished rentals.

Furnished and unfurnished rentals are very different, each has its own benefits and drawbacks.

Here are some of the key differences to help you choose the most suitable rental in Paris:

Unfurnished rentals

  • Customisable: make the apartment your own with your choice of furnishings and decoration.
  • Stability: tenant protection with a minimum 3-year lease agreement.
  • Scarce: it can be more difficult to find one as competition is tough between potential tenants - this means that you need a very well prepared and strong application.
  • Empty: in France, “unfurnished” means literally “unfurnished” e.g., kitchens are entirely empty - but we do our best to select properties with some kitchen equipment etc.
