what is a box in a French real estate ad

The terms used in French real estate advertisement are sometimes not easy to decode.

When you see the term ‘garage’ in a French apartment ad this does not mean you have a private garage, in fact, it typically means you have a place in an open underground garage. If the space is an individual space completely closed with a door is it called a ‘box’.

Note if the advertisement says ‘place de parking’ you will need to confirm if the parking space is outside the building and in a secure area.
