Visiting Paris is always a good idea. Bonjour?! The City of Light makes for a dreamy getaway, and its diverse neighbourhoods mean that you can experience a new side each time. And while Paris is known for being, shall we say, a little pricey when it comes to accommodation, Airbnb is a fantastic option for affordable, left-field options (although all-out luxury is on offer, too!). We've searched the city – from the enchanting village feel of Montmartre to the très trendy South Pigalle – to find some of the loveliest stays that are within walking distance from some of the biggest tourist attractions and activities in the capital. Whether you're looking for massive eight-person houses or a beautiful tiny little annex, there's plenty of choice on Airbnb and it'll put you right in the heart of all things great about this vibrant city. Enjoy!

The best Paris Airbnbs

Planning your first trip to the City of Light, as opposed to the City of Love, or whatever else Paris is called? If so, this lovely and lit (in every sense) studio apartment could be exactly what you're looking for. Located in the heart of the 1st Arrondissement, it's a short walk to the Louvre, Place de la Concorde and the Champs-Élysées among other top tourist destinations. You'll also find it's directly across the street from the Tuileries Metro, which gets its name from the garden at the Louvre. Huge windows and luxe furnishings (in the styles of Louis XV, Louis XVI, Empire, and Art Nouveau) make this a bright and beautiful base from which to explore Paris. 

Cosy flat in South Pigalle

Located in that trendy little spot known as So-Pi to those who are in the know, this pretty little flat will have you surrounded by (seemingly endless) cafés, chocolateries and cocktail bars to get lost in for weeks and weeks. A stroll northwards and you'll end up at Moulin Rouge (to the west) and Sacré-Cœur (to the east), plus some great bistros. The apartment itself is bright and spacious, with a balcony absolutely screaming for croissants, coffee, and books curated for a cute little Insta story (and for you to just actually unwind and enjoy) in the morning.

Looking for a romantic retreat? Imagine sipping wine from your spacious terrace watching lights glitter across the Seine all the way to the Eiffel Tower. Not only is this apartment perfectly located a ten-minute walk from the Trocadéro, but it's gorgeous inside, too. Its two floors are connected with a curved Art Deco staircase and furnishings are quirky and stylish. You'll want to book this way in advance though, the waiting list has been known to stretch as far as a year!  

A four-bedroom industrial loft

The owners of this wonderfully rustic loft conversion took an old industrial building and transformed it into one of Paris's most beautiful Airbnb spots. There's boatloads of space, and the aesthetic that makes this place so alluring is best seen in the high-ceilinged living space, the sun streaming through the skylights. Makes sense though, when you consider this is in Canal Saint-Martin, aka one of the most hip spots in the capital. It's also just a 15 minute walk from Le Marais, and there's plenty of transport nearby to get you into the traditionally popular areas as opposed to these trendy new spots too.

Charming one-bed apartment in Canal Saint-Martin

If you're coming into Paris via Gare du Nord, Canal Saint-Martin is an ideal district to stay in as it's only a ten-minute walk away. It also offers stunning views of the water, cobbled streets, and eateries aplenty. This pretty apartment has a kitchenette-cum-living room, with a separate bedroom (and an inflatable mattress for the lounge) meaning you can easily sleep three people here. The apartment isn't huge, but it doesn't need to be – you're here for a holiday not a hotel! It is very nicely decorated though, and has everything you'll need for a nice place to rest after your adventures.

Open-plan apartment in Montmartre

Located only a short stroll north of the striking structure on the hill that is Sacré-Cœur, this cute flat provides a homely, light and airy space for two to relax in right among all the good things Montmartre has to offer. There's an old-school feel in this area (think 'Amelie', as a lot of it was filmed here) with seriously quaint bistros, architecture, and shops. Old doesn't mean bad though, these lovely dining spots, bars and beyond must still be open for a reason, right? There's also a lot of transport links here along with a courtyard.

Studio apartment, Le Marais

Le Marais is described as the district of old-world charm, narrow cobblestone streets, hidden courtyards & tranquil gardens. This is a sweet studio offering a lot more light and space you'd get in a typical Parisian apartment. It's also equipped with a washing machine and a kitchenette with all the mod cons. And you don't have to worry about paying crazy prices for a taxi, or waiting ages for a bus to take you to the places you want to visit, as this apartment's central location means it's walking distance to most sites. It would make the perfect little apartment for a short getaway.

A whole house in Chinatown. This place sleeps eight comfortably (more could fit on sofas though if you're thinking you want a whole entourage). The decor inside is vibrant and should help encourage you to have a jolly good whether you're hitting the bars around the area or just bringing some good Bordeaux home. There are loads of amazing Chinese restaurants and supermarkets in this area you should check out though, plus it's a short walk from the luscious Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. So go check them at least!

A room in a Belleville private garden

This ensuite room-only situation is too beautiful to miss out. Look at the photo! It's equipped with pyramidic doors that lead out to your very own spacious terrace, for a bit of sunshine when you're not ready to leave the room yet. The terrace is complete with furniture and plants giving it a contemporary feel. And although there's no kitchen, but there are tea and coffee-making facilities, as well as plenty of affordable eateries around Belleville to satisfy you.
