Michel B.Roommate in Paris

I rented a room with them for 3 months for work and they are very professional.

Make sure to pay attention to the profile of the tenants (students or young workers) to make sure you live with people with a similar life schedule.

As everything is managed by the agency, the experience is so smooth and easy ...

The rooms offered by Chez Nestor are also very functional, and the furniture is very homely and high quality. It is an ideal option for a short or medium stay, everything is included and ready to use, all you need to bring is your suitcase.

Do you have any questions?

Questions you may ask yourself before renting accommodation with Chez Nestor

You can discover a more in-depth FAQ for our tenants on our FAQ page available in the menu.

You can only visit a room or the entire apartment on your mobile or computer thanks to the 3D virtual tours on our website. We want to avoid disturbing tenants as much as possible in their homes. However, you can get in touch with the tenants of the accommodation and ask them if they are willing to show you around the shared apartment (just ask our team!).

Once you are a tenant with Chez Nestor, you can take advantage of all our maintenance services. Maybe a machine breaks down, maybe you are missing a kitchen utensil? Do you have a problem with another tenant? Is your internet connection slow? Whatever your problem, you can talk to the customer service team, they can resolve your problems and plan interventions as quickly as possible.

Each Chez Nestor roommate signs a sublet contract which is a standard individual lease, allowing you to enjoy your accommodation for as long as you want.

In a Chez Nestor flatshare, the minimum rental period for a room is 1 month. However, you can stay in the apartment as long as you want afterwards.

All flatmates within Chez Nestor must respect a code of conduct within the accommodation and also with the neighbours. The goal is not to disturb the other tenants of the accommodation and to ensure calm and cleanliness in the shared apartment.

Each room is fully furnished and you can use it as you wish. The common areas are also fully equipped, all you need to bring is yourself and your suitcase!

Home insurance for your room is included in your contract. Your lease allows you to receive housing aid distributed by CAF according to the price of your rent, your status (students, Erasmus, young workers, etc.) and also the amount you earn per month.

It may be that depending on the season, we have very few rooms available. It is indicated on each room if it is available immediately or if it will be available within a few days or weeks. If you can't find accommodation that suits you, you can fill out our Housing Alert which will keep you informed by email if a room that meets your criteria is available in order to reserve it.

Once your reservation is finalized and your room reserved, you can find your tenant space on the website in order to pay your rent, see your rent receipts and have a history of your file from the start of your rental until the end.

At Chez Nestor, the amount of rent for a room is not fixed until it is reserved, like what can be found for renting a hotel or an AirBnb. So, the price may vary depending on the season. Each room being mostly different within the same apartment, with different sizes and levels of finish, this explains why each roommate can have a different rent.

We are not a typical agency, there are no advertisements on our website because we manage all the rooms you can rent. So you will never interact with a particular owner and each accommodation on the site is fully managed by our company.

In order to be able to sign your Lease, you do not need a guarantor. You can click on this link in order to fill our a form, which will immediately tell you what documents you need according to your situation.
