Artiste and Lifelong Lover of France

Tenant Searching for a Place in Paris, Île-de-France, France

Listing #146227

Looking for an Entire Home | Willing to Housesit
Monthly Budget: Maximum USD $2500
Last Updated 17 days ago


I am retired from work, well travelled (worked/lived in India), but always preferred France to all destinations. As an artist working in different media, primarily working with the human figure, I have applied to study in Paris. If awarded a carte de sejour, I will fulfill a lifelong dream. I am taking French classes now, and will enroll in language study as well while in Paris. I am currently concluding sale of my own residence of 26y in US; in Virginia, and my own home is filled with art and antiques, so consider me an exemplary candidate to reside in someone else's home, and I will treat it as I would my own. Though I'm searching for rental property, I am flexible and open to other situations. My request for dates is 6 months, but I am flexible in that regard as well. I am a vigorous and healthy 65, still riding my horse, exercise daily and have no health issues or restrictions. After extensive research online for furnished accommodations via agencies, etc., this format suits me as I'd like to negotiate and make arrangements directly with a homeowner. Thank you for reading about me.
