We've rounded up the most charming and affordable stays that are walking distance from some of the best tourist attractions and activities in the capital, so you can splash those savings on delicious cheese and vino.

The best Paris Airbnbs

A room with a view

Let’s be honest – Parisian views don’t get much better than this. Whoever owns this Airbnb is one lucky person, but being able to experience this terrace view for a few nights is reward enough. Gaze upon the Eiffel Tower, while sipping on a great French coffee, from this neat and stylish one-bed. There's a sizeable (for Paris) living room with a separate kitchenette.

Les Terrasses de la Tour Eiffel

Another gorgeous flat with equally gorgeous views of the famous Paris landmark. This one's got enough room to host 12 people (so you bring the whole brood) and it's beautifully kitted out inside with a modern, design-led feel and a very cool cantilever staircase.

Luxurious apartment in Saint-Germain

This place is trés regal – it's like Versailles but without the crowds. Well, almost. It's spread across 2500 square feet of bedrooms (five), bathrooms (two), some very desirable wood panelling and incredibly high ceilings. Plus it's situated in the very trendy Latin Quarter, so you won't be short of things to do here.

Airbnb Paris: Cosy flat, South Pigalle

Cosy flat in South Pigalle

Located in So-Pi, this lovely little flat will have you in amongst countless cafés, chocolateries and cocktail bars. Plus a stroll northwards will find you at Moulin Rouge (to the west) and Sacré-Cœur (to the east). The apartment itself is bright and airy, with a balcony to have croissants and coffee on in the mornings.

Airbnb Paris: Luxury two-bed, South Pigalle

Luminous three-bed in Pigalle

Another Pigalle pad: this one would especially suit groups of up to six, especially if one person doesn't mind crashing on the sofa. The three double bedrooms are all white/cream, but in a calming way, rather than a dentist's waiting room. There's also shed loads of light streming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. But be warned: this place is on the fifth floor and there's no lift.

Art Deco apartment with Eiffel Tower views

This two-floor Art Deco apartment overlooks the Seine all the way to the Eiffel Tower, with the views probably best taken from the very spacious terrace. Well, why not? It's close to Rue de Passy and just a ten-minute walk from Trocadero. A romantic retreat at its finest.

Manoir des Impressionnistes

Because who wouldn't want a massive French château? This glorious Belle Epoque manoir is just 15 minutes from the centre of Paris, in 15 acres of lush grounds. It can sleep ten and is about as close to a slice of upper-class French living as you're likely to get.

A four-bedroom industrial loft

The owners of this beautifully rustic loft conversion took an old industrial building and turned it into one of Paris's loveliest Airbnb spots. There's a huge amount of space, and the aesthetic that makes this place so appealing is best seen in the high-ceilinged living space, the sun streaming through the skylights.

Luxury flat near Arc de Triomphe

Fancy a little taste of French bourgeouise life? Mais oui, mais oui. The splendour of this glorious four-bedroom flat is only matched by its location: right next to Arc de Triomphe, five minutes from the Champs-Elysées, and ten minutes from Avenue Montaigne and the Eiffel Tower. Plus, they'll even send a Merc to pick you up from the airport or station.

Airbnb Paris: Open plan apartment, Montmartre

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. 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.

Airbnb Paris: Studio apartment, Le Marais

Studio apartment, Le Marais

A sweet studio in the leafy Marais district, offering shed loads more light and space than you'd typically get in a Parisian apartment. There's a washing machine and a kitchenette with all the mod cons, plus its central location means it's walking distance to most sites (and surrounded by Metro stations for everything else). With one double bed and a sofabed, this place can accomodate four, but would be more comfortable for two.

A classy Parisian flat in Bastille

French flats don't get much more authentic than this – if your idea of Parisian is one with money and views. This may not be the cheapest place (under £100 each if split between four), but you sure do get a lot for your money. A panoramic view across the city through massive windows, for one, a balcony that snakes around the apartment, and decor finished to five-star hotel standards.

Airbnb Paris: Stunning room, Belleville

A room in a Belleville private garden

This is an ensuite room-only situation, but it's too beautiful to miss out. Architecturally and decoratively stunning, with pyramidic doors that lead out onto a spacious suntrap of a terrace. There's no kitchen, but there are tea/coffee-making facilities, and there are more than enough affordable eateries around Belleville to satisfy you.
