The Top 8 Romantic Airbnbs in Paris

Whether you're visiting Paris for an engagement, an anniversary, or just a romantic getaway, we've taken the guesswork out of making sure you're in the right place


"Do not seek the because – in love there is no because."

- Anaïs Nin

Inspiring the greatest poets, artists, and writers in history, Paris rivals Rome and Venice in the romance department. We daren’t begin to count the movies and books that have been inspired by Paris’s greatest love stories. (We’d be here all day and we’ve fancy love nests to get to.) Romance is in Paris’s very fibre and being; it’s in the buildings and it’s in the air.

When looking for a romantic getaway - be it for a weekend or a whole month - Paris will almost certainly be near the top of the list of choice destinations. If it’s not, let us say, “Quelle surprise!” and move on. Because, if you give yourself the time to think about how many have fallen in love or been in love on Paris’s streets, you’d know why it’s the right city for a romance in bloom.

You can do anything. Stay out late, stay in all day. All that matters is that you’re together in the perfect place.
