Parisflatlist wants to give you those precious informatins that all good parisian knows, so you will spend a wonderful time and saving your time, so you ll be able to live as a parisian!

TAXIS

TaxiParisian taxi are easily recognizable thanks to their « hat » on their roof.

When the light is red, it means it is occupied

When the light is green, it means it is available.

Please note that “normal taxis cars” can charge a maximum of 3 people for security reasons as they are not authorized to let a passenger sit in front (=next to the driver)

Therefore, if you are travelling with more than 3 people and/or with many lugages, we recommend you to prebook a taxi that will give you a proper car model

There are many different taxis compagnies, but be careful of the FAKE ones, especially             on airports and stations site

TRAVEL BY CAR

can-stock-photo_csp5592993Advice if you are travelling by car or have rented a car during your stay :

If you park on the street, there are 3 ways of paying at the ticket machine (‘l’horodateur) :

– by credit card.

– by ‘Paris Carte’ which has replaced the former ‘Carte Monéo’. It is a prepaid smart card that allows you to pay your parking directly at the ticket machine and most of the ‘Tabac’ shops sell them.

-P phone – the new system for phones

  • THE MONTH OF AUGUST :From 01/01/2015, most streets have started charging in AUGUST (previously Paris was known to offer free parking exceptionally in this month). Also street parking is now free from 20H00 to 09H00 (whilst before it was from 19H00 to 09H00), and Parisians are very unhappy with that !!

BATOBUS

    This is the best Paris has to offer. Walking distance to Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens, Pantheon and Seine. Close to one of the oldest cabarets and home to some of the best restaurants. Even though you'll need to climb the stairs the view from the balcony is magnificent. Place is clean and cosy, just excellent. I would warmly recommend it...

    The apartment is close to a beautiful park. Unfortunately the door of the apartment is not marked, so we had quite a few problems before we found it. The metro station is close , from which you are anywhere fast. The apartment is big enough for four adults. The kitchen is good equipped but some scratched containers need to be replaced. Pull-out sofa is  comfortable. We had a really good time so that the apartment is definitely worth the money we paid. Nadia did not meet us in person but we received many of her help over the phone.

    We were very happy in this delightful little flat. It was comfortable and was provided with everything one could possibly need, without being ostentatious- in other words, it was as 'authentic' a Parisien experience in the best sort of way that it could be. Also the situation was perfect - a nice quiet street, but just round the corner, and...

It was comfortable and was provided with everything one could possibly need, without being ostentatious- in other words, it was as 'authentic' a Parisien experience in the best sort of way that it could be. Also the situation was perfect - a nice quiet street, but just round the corner, and within easy walking distance, from all the interesting places in the Marais and down to the Seine.... I would definitely return here next time.   kaitie, AUSTIN, SEPTEMBER 2014

    El departamento de Nadia es perfecto para lo que nosotros buscábamos: cómodo para dos personas, funcional, cerca de una zona de restaurants y bares y accesible a zonas turísticas de París tanto a pie como por subte. La comunicación con Nadia fue estupenda. Ojalá podamos volver muy pronto Berisso, Argentina, AUGUST 2017
