Have any of your heard of Have in Paris? HIP provides short-term vacation rentals in France, England and Tuscany. I discovered this website a couple of months ago and like to visit it occasionally to plan my dream vacation when the weather is particularly dreary out here in NJ. The villas (le sigh) and apartments are so beautiful, and the locations are stellar. I love the idea of being able to wake up in the morning in a little Parisian apartment to a view of Montmartre and Sacre Coeur.
Summer, could you please hurry up and get here?
