How to decorate my apartment

Functional apartments with a stylish aesthetic.

"Les Belles Années" residences are furnished with all the necessary equipment for everyday student life.

Contemporary design

"Les Belles Années" apartments have a contemporary design, quality furniture and an arrangment designed to make life easier for students.  Every detail counts and nothing is left to chance, therefore"Les Belles Années" works in close collaboration with the company Art services, specializing in residential arrangement.
The furniture is renewed every two years: change of fabrics, colors and accessories to adapt to new trends and needs of students.
The clean and modern decoration of our apartments allows residents to decorate their apartment according to their taste. However, residents must follow certain rules:

  • Do not damage the supplied equipment
  • Do not paint the walls
  • Do not unscrew furniture
  • Make the fewest holes possible.  If holes are made in the wall, they must be limited in number and filled in at the end of the apartment’s rental period.

At the end of your lease the apartment must be returned in its original condition.

    Close to universities

    I was immediately seduced by the Victorian Park residence: the interior garden, the apartments with mezzanine and the great location, close to the universities.
