Selected by: @jasminetartine
Why: “Besides its ideal location in the 9th arrondissement, where travelers will be spoiled for choice between the variety of cafes and restaurants, this Haussmann apartment is spacious, bright and modern.

The beautiful city
Selected by: @nathill
Why: “The apartment is cozy with its colors (especially this magnificent green wall) and its patterns (such as the tiling of the kitchen and the bathroom).

Selected by: @ruerodier
Why: “I propose a Airbnb belonging to my good friend Frank from @cakeboyparis, because it is one of the most beautiful Parisian apartments that I visited; the kind that wouldn’t look out of place in the pages of Elle Deco. I think I was first introduced to Frank’s house for a friend’s baby shower – it’s great for throwing parties and cakes. A large two-room apartment, it is located between my favorite neighborhoods, the Marais and Paris‘Oberkampf slightly cooler. It has all the traditional details expected of a Haussmann building: beautiful marble fireplaces, wooden floors, cornices on the ceiling, but Frank and his partner James have also decorated it with a perfect mix of vintage mid-century pieces, antique furniture. Swedish inspiration, old paintings, colorful kilim rugs and cushions, and trinkets from their travels. And it also has large windows that bathe the space in light so that friends often use it for filming. “
