Monthly rents are between 450 Euro and 600 Euro per month.
We will send you a presentation of the residence to be returned signed up for approval.
If you subscribe to the housing service, we will look primarily for an employer who provides housing. Rents in these cases are cheaper. If the employer provides accommodation, conditions will be provided with your job offer. In this case, the rent is deducted directly from wages. Note that no employer in Paris and suburbs provides housing.
By applying to the housing service, you agree to accept housing proposed by us and to stay in the residence for all the duration of your stay in France and to comply with the regulations.
