Shared accommodations in Lille

Lille is the 10th most populated city in France but it is also one of the most student-oriented cities in proportion to its population. Lille is known to be a warm city which compensates for the sometimes hazardous weather of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais. Although you might not speak Chti in your roommate's language from the first month, you'll end up speaking a bit of Chti :p Roommates in Lille are a good way to save money in a city where the cost of living is already relatively low compared to Paris; although the price of the rent can go from simple to double depending on the neighborhood.  Living in a shared apartment in Lille is to feel the good mood of the city, to walk on the quai du Wault and to enjoy the Old Lille. It is also to be rocked by the water on the edge of the Deûle along the canal of Roubaix or the canal of Marcq. It is also to benefit from a proximity with Paris, with England and Belgium which makes it an ideal crossroads in France for the students who wish to travel or the young active people who must be mobile for their work. You can't escape the famous "rue de la soif" in Lille where many nightlife events are concentrated with its numerous bars, estaminets and other restaurants more or less typical of the region. With a bit of luck you can even live right next door which is perfect for a night out with your roommates in the center of Lille.  You can also take advantage of the big zenith or the aerial to go and see concerts but also of the Old Lille and its charming little stores. Finally, don't forget the famous "braderie de Lille" which gathers more than two million visitors every year and is a real tradition to do between roommates!

The lease in a shared apartment in Lille Chez Nestor

The question of the lease in a shared apartment is essential because it can protect the tenants of the apartment in a more or less important way. Whether your roommate is in Lille or anywhere else in France, the logic is always the same at Chez Nestor. Indeed, you sign only one type of lease which is the "individual lease". So you are not joint if one of your roommates does not pay his rent and you can pay your share of the rent independently directly online on our website from your customer area.
