Partager Paris Apartments

Salle de Douche aka Shower Room

Paris Apartments !  I have spent hours looking for the perfect one to buy.  I have walked all over Paris visiting one after another. 
I have set "alerts" on Seloger and PAP (on-line real estate agencies) for each arrondisement with the criteria I dream of ... 

... a double salon with an "american kitchen", salle de bain, separate toilet (preferable with a window and sink, two bedrooms (or I will settle for a bedroom and a small bureau), and a "cave".  The "nice-to-haves" would include a parking and an east-facing balcony off of the salon.  
Now is that asking for too much?
Trust me, it is.  

Maybe I should keep renting?  Over 50% of Parisians are renters.  Finding a better, bigger apartment to rent is a sport here.

Why do I feel this need to have my own Paris Apartment?

Presently, after two years of discussion, we are having our salle de douche redone.  You wouldn't think that such a small room could cause such havoc!  Just keeping up with our toothbrushes has been a challenge. We were told 3 days max ... and now ... 
5 days in, we are still looking at quite a mess, ... a real mess that is half done.  One little problem leads to another, and more materials, and more and more EUROS!  The workers, and our landlord,  come in and out all during the day.  They are now members of our little family.   Will we ever have our apartment back?

So, now I'm re-thinking this ...
Do I really want my own Paris apartment?

Thank goodness its a rental!
