:/ A bit discouraging. Although I like the "small company" bit a lot.
The problem with me is that:
a) I don't speak ANY French, so renting a flat, or even buying some stuff in shops, would be difficult for me,
b) I've stayed in Paris for 5 days this year, paying 40 euros a day for a "hotel" (Polish Science Academy, hence the quotes) - if I had to pay that much for 3/6 months it would be quite a heavy burden. I don't require much money though - if I have enough to live by, I'm fine.
Well, we'll see. I'll probably send you my CV tomorrow. If you get someone who speaks French (or, of course, has better qualifications), don't hesitate to take him/her.
