My old roomate and i rented an apartment through an agency last spring
for 10 days. he apt. was okay but there was very little cooking equipment
and the beds were of poor quality. On the plus side we were delighted to
shop in the local markets, go to the Gallerie Lafayette to shop for
groceries, etc. We really felt like we got a wonxerful taste of real Paris
going to the local cleaners and having our favorite special places. I would
renmt an apt. again for the charm. It was also so wonderful to come home at
the end of the day, have plenty of space to kick back in. Hope this helps.
