What type of accommodation to choose to stay in Saint-Étienne ? 


The type of accommodation is defined by two main criteria.

In real estate jargon, housing types are categorized according to what is called an attribute (T1, T2, T3, T4, etc.). This attribute indicates the number of living rooms: the living room and the bedroom(s). Thus, a T1 apartment is a dwelling which is composed of only one room, a T2 apartment which contains two rooms etc.

What surface for a furnished apartment in Saint-Étienne?
