Although many people like to come in spring and summer, fall and winter can also be excellent times to visit Paris. Walking through the fallen leaves in parks, enjoying less crowded museums, rubbing shoulders with more Parisians in cafés and taking in the holiday markets and decorations are just some of the reasons to visit Paris during this half of the year. With making the most of these seasons in mind, we’ve selected some perfect holiday apartments in Paris for the autumn and winter.

This two-bedroom apartment in Saint Germain is both bright and cozy, thanks to its large windows and pale wooden-beamed ceilings. It has a large double living room for reading on cooler days, a modern kitchen and two bedrooms with light color palettes. Located in a courtyard, you have tranquility at home, while stepping out into the street, there are bustling cafés, art galleries and shops in this chic Left Bank district.
Perfect for a couple, you can’t help but feel right at home “Chez Vous”. Modern furniture and amenities nicely juxtapose white wooden-beamed ceilings. Its very central location in the Palais-Royal area means you can get most places on foot, amble through the hidden Palais Royal Garden, grab a coffee in the area’s fabulous contemporary cafés and slip back home to relax or warm up.
You won’t mind at all spending a rainy autumn afternoon indoors at this book lover’s dream. Found near the hip Faubourg Saint Denis and not far from the Canal Saint Martin, when you’re not cozied up with one of the living room’s many books, you can discover the area’s many cool bars, inventive restaurants and great coffee shops.
You definitely won’t get a case of the blues staying at this warm three-bedroom apartment near Arts and Metiers. Located on the top floor of a historic building, its vast open plan living room and kitchen has over-sized sofas, slanted ceilings and exposed wooden beams. The location offers you the pleasures of both the Upper Marais and the cool Sentier district so you can easily alternate art galleries, shopping and hanging with Parisians in these popular local districts.
Combine the coziness of large wooden beams and hardwood floors with tall ceilings and stylish chic contemporary furnishings at this airy two-bedroom apartment in the Saint-Germain district. It’s ideal for long walks along the Seine, wandering the halls of the nearby Musée d’Orsay or browsing the area’s many antique shops and art galleries. Excellent gourmet stores for meals in and a wide array of restaurants for dinners out are also within easy reach.
Nestled in the heart of the Marais, near rue des Rosiers and Saint Paul, is this unique one-bedroom apartment. Almost akin to staying in your own bookstore, it boasts super high ceilings, walls lined with books and a cozy loft bedroom. On days out in the area, you can museum hop, lunch on a savory falafel sandwich, browse the antique shops of the Village Saint-Paul or take long strolls along the Seine.
With large exposed stone walls and dark wooden beams, this two-bedroom in the 5th is perfect for an autumn or winter stay on the edge of the Latin Quarter. Enjoy a sunny stroll in the Jardin des Plantes, gaze up at dinosaur bones at the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution, spend hours pursuing the area’s bookshops or warm up at the Grande Mosquée’s tea salon or hammam.
For a stay in a chic residential district of Paris, consider this gorgeous three-bedroom apartment in the 16th arrondissement. The airy, beautiful apartment blends crown moldings and arched doorways with tasteful modern furniture and contemporary design items. You can enjoy the last of the autumn colors on walks through the Bois de Boulogne, take in some art at the Fondation Louis Vuitton or tantalize your palate on gourmet meals.
