Tenant FAQ

After 30 years of helping expats find long-term furnished apartment rentals in Paris, we’ve been asked almost everything! Here’s a selection of the most frequently-asked questions:

  • Is Internet included in the rent? Toggle select

    Generally, yes. But, any additional downloads via television (music, movies, etc.) will be charged to you.

    If it's not included, our team can provide a list of options for tripleplay (internet, phone, television). 

    If you prefer to have the installation completely taken care of, or have special requests (ex. home theater), we can arrange an appointment for an independent specialist to set everything up for you.
