7. The pop art apartment in Central Paris

The way to the heart of any City is to get among the locals. So, if an authentic trip is what you're after, then you'll love lodging with Aliya and Phillipe in their modern abode. The friendly pair are always on-hand and up for a drink, so you'll feel right at home. And where location is concerned, you can't beat the 2nd arrondissement, which puts you within a short walk from Montorgueil, where you'll find eateries aplenty, as well as Opera, theatre and Metro lines, 3, 8 and 9. You'll stay in the family's large, newly renovated guest suite – a playfully decorated red room (think more chic, less kink) with an en-suite. You'll also find a workspace, mini-fridge, and a little station for teas and coffees. There's no kitchen, but with so many restaurants and cafes, we'll doubt you'll need it. Grab your beret and a phrase book, and off you go. 

Rooms? One bedroom. Sleeps two guests.
The mood? Local Parisian vibes.  
Location perks? Be no more than a 15-minute walk from all the main sights, the Louvre included.

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.

9. The four-bedroom industrial loft in Canal St Martin

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. 

Rooms? Four bedrooms. Sleeps nine guests. 
The mood? Trendy, ambient and cosy spot. 
Location perks? It's a direct Metro line to Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Le Louvre, and Galeries Lafayettes. C'est super.
