english speaking french real estate agents

In a French real estate advertisement if you see the notation T1 it is referring to a studio apartment, if you see T2 it is referring to a one bedroom apartment, T3 refers to a 2 bedroom apartment.

The ‘T’ is referring to the number of rooms called ‘pièces’ in French. The term ‘pièces’ is defined here.
Of course, to be an apartment the T1 also has a kitchen area and a bath or shower room with a toilet.

Note: Sometimes you will see the letter F used instead of T in the advertisement. Generally a T1 apartment is the same as a F1 apartment. The letter F can also be used to describe a house. So a F4 would be a 3 bedroom house.
