Find accommodation

Probably one of the most important things when moving to Paris is ensuring you have a place to live. It can be challenging finding accommodation in Paris but once we have secured your role with the agency we can assist you in a few different ways.


We have many handy hints and tips to guide you about where to search for accommodation in Paris. Once through the recruitment process, we can share our extensive English guide with you to use.

Financial aid – CAF

For some employees, there will be the possibility of financial help from the government towards your accommodation once you have been employed with us for three months. This is called CAF (Caisse d’Allocations Familiales) and we can give you more information on how to apply for it after your first three months of work.

Where else to look?

We also have a staff only Facebook page where our employees can advertise housing options and some of our clients have their own rental properties we can offer from time to time.

Websites and real estate agents: If you are looking for something else independently, you can search the internet or visit your local immobilier. We can give you a list of recommended websites to try as well as information on what documents you will need to prepare for your dossier.

If searching by yourself, be aware of scams. Never pay any money upfront and do not hand over your identity documents without seeing the apartment and verifying the agency or individual is who they promise!

Rental insurance

No matter which type of accommodation you find yourself in, you will need to consider a type of renters insurance called assurance habitation. Many banks can offer this insurance as an additional extra alongside your account or you can apply for it through a partnership we have with AXA.
