I needed a flat in 2 days in a town I did not know, and I have been redirected from a student's agency to the landlady.Read more...
Very efficient, I thought. The flat was a first floor studio with old wooden floor and old wooden furniture. There was a long corridor dividing the kitchen from the bedroom, with tall and narrow white wood windows on the right. Great view on the mansard roof of the neighborhood. The kitchen was made of a table, a chair, a small fridge, a hot plate and a shower (YES, a shower). The bedroom was made of a wooden bed that I was warned not to use, another small bed I could use, a large mirror, a closet and a card table (YES, a card table). A small shared bathroom was on the second floor, in perfect french style. It was five minutes walking from the centre, and very close to my office too. Unfortunately, everything was too old and too delicate to work. The heating system was my main concern, together with the fact that the internet connection did not work in any room. The landlady was kind, after all, but I still believe the price was too high. I was also asked to subscribe the housing insurance, which is common practice in France (especially if you live in a timber-framed house!). Since I did not have a french bank account, all the insurance companies in town refused me to pay the insurance with my italian account. Result: I moved away as soon as I could. All in all, it is the wrong flat for me and all those who want to enjoy the comfort of the modern era.
