Caution: A number of con artists have been using this site to search for targets. One of the main tactics is to ask for payment to be wired to an account and then deactivating their email address. This is still a relatively rare occurrence but it has been happening recently enough to warrant this advisory note.  The Editors of H-France advise you to use caution when interacting with prospective landlords overseas, even if they advertise on this site. Most reputable landlords can provide references from previous tenants or accept payment through a more protected means such as Paypal.

My fully-furnished bedroom is available for sublet through the end of August in Menilmontant, the best neighborhood in all of Paris! The apartment is furnished with books, instruments, plants, and a lovely, full-service kitchen. It gets unbelievably great evening light. Your roommate is a brilliant, kind, multilingual filmmaker (and her cat). The neighborhood has wonderful restaurants and cafes, markets nearly every day, and a seriously community-minded spirit. The building is next door to the famed Bellevilloise, and it’s a 10 minute walk to Parc de Belleville, and 20 minutes to Parc des Buttes Chaumont. Nearby buses will get you to the center of the city or the Left Bank in less than 30 minutes, and three metro lines are nearby. The apartment is in the process of being turned over to new lease-holders, so end of August is a firm end date, but start dates are flexible! Asking $175/week, or $625 for the whole month (which can start as early as this week). All utilities are already covered. While much of the city is on holiday for August, this is the perfect opportunity to take an affordable retreat in Paris! Contact: Anya van Wagtendonk, (413) 429-6951, www.anyavw.com
