This 2-bedroom apartment in Paris – in the Marais, one of my favorite neighborhoods – is for sale. One month’s worth. It has a name – “Jardin Saint-Paul.” Oo la la – quelles romantic!
I have been harboring this Paris apartment dream for a while now. To live in Paris one month a year, invite all my friends to visit. This one costs $146,000 for a month’s share. $1,800 per year to cover upkeep, utilities, etc.
I read this and was so ready-to-buy. This lasted roughly 30 minutes until I told husband of “our new plans.” He says – “it’ll be cheaper than $146,000 plus $1,800 a year to rent an apartment for a month each year.”
Sigh. What do you think?
