Apartment Quest

Parisian apartment by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

During the last couple of weeks I’ve felt a bit too stressed and overwhelmed (which is the reason to the lack of updates around here) much due to work and trying to find an apartment at the same time. Those of you who have been looking for an apartment in Paris know that this is not the easiest task to take on. After looking at several dumps, dark holes and apartments that shouldn’t even be allowed to be called “apartments”, I think I might actually have found the one. Fingers and toes crossed now for this to work out.

… And thanks Marissa for letting me borrow your pretty view!

    Totally understand! I find it hard already to rent a place for a month or three, so for longer must be even harder! I´m very excited for you, and hope this is really the one 🙂

  5. Good luck! ^^

  6. I hope it all works out… good luck.x

  7. I was lucky and my husband did all the apartment hunting =) Good luck. I hope it works out for you.

    I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you! I will also be apartment hunting in Paris at the end of August and really hoping I can find something with a view as beautiful as this one (and a balcony for my little cat)! Very excited to see what you end up finding! Bonne chance! xoxo

  12. Thinking of you. Good, good luck!

    Good luck Carin! I’m currently looking for apartments too here in Paris and it is not very pleasant indeed.

    I recognise that balcony 😉 so very happy that you’ve found ‘the one’! Can’t wait to see it and thanks for the mention darling! xxx

    Synd att du inte varit i kontakt med mig Carin, jag har bra kontakter för sådant.. beror förstås på storlekskrav, arrond och hyra. Men håller tummarna för dig! 🙂
    Mvh, Magdalena Martin

  21. Finding a 3 month rental from Australia was definitely a challenge, sorry to hear it’s no easier when you are already in Paris. The right one will be magical

    I found my apartment in Paris through LODGIS. They are amazing – I actually might be moving back sometime soon and they have helped tremendously. Good luck with the search though, I know how stressful it can be!

  23. Ah, I’m sure you will find the most perfect apartment… with your photographer’s eye I wouldn’t expect anything less. Sending all my lucky vibes to you! x

    Aww congrats for finding the best and perfect apartment dear!

  25. Keeping my fingers crossed for you, lovely! Apartment hunting is the best/worst. The best because of the promise of a new beginning but the worst because of all the bad you have to see before discovering the right place for you…

  26. Crossing my fingers for you! I hope everything works out!
