Finding the perfect vacation apartment in Paris is hard, finding a romantic one, worse. Or at least it was until we decided to scour Paris Perfect, an online apartment rental service, and make Parisian life a little simpler. Why apartments? While no one gets the charm of disappearing dirty dishes and perfectly fluffed pillows better than us, apartments offer the fantasy of living life in a spanking new city, like a local, besides of course, being a whole lot more affordable. So those of you lovebirds traveling to Paris in the near future can sit back and book one of the three, most romantic apartments.
One of the latest entrants in the Paris Perfect portfolio, Chambertin is set in a picture-perfect spot near the Eiffel Tower, Champ de Mars gardens, and Seine River. So it’s no wonder the dreamy one-bedroom has climbed close to the top, but not without magazine spread-worthy looks that extend to the powder room, en suite bath, open plan living room, kitchen, and dining area. And three sets of large French doors, which open to a long and private balcony with breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower. But the highlight of the property remains that the same view can also be enjoyed from within the luxurious claw-footed bathtub. As for the apartment, it can currently be enjoyed at a 30% sale price of €299 – €488 ($400 – $665) per night. 2) Volnay
And from three French doors to five! Centrally located in the 7th arrondissement, Volnay has the Eiffel Tower, Rue Cler Market Street, and the Seine River located just moments away. But besides the extraordinary Eiffel Tower view (which, as we’ve established, is a key player when looking up vacation homes), this romantic one-bedroom is surrounded by cafés, shops, restaurants, and open-air markets. And from what we hear, perfect for special anniversaries and honeymoons. So if you plan to be out, celebrating that, we suggest you book the place while its still being offered at the sale price of €304 – €480 ($415 – $655) per night. 1) Champagne
We won’t even state the obvious by saying that here’s an apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower. But the fact that this gorgeous one-bedroom features a straight-on view of the lovely ‘La Tour Eiffel’ means unforgettable memories of the magic light show that begins after dark. Meanwhile, The king-sized bed promises a great night’s sleep every night of your stay in this Paris apartment. And those looking for more pampering don’t just find themselves faced with an 80-gallon hot water tank (the largest available) but also a beauty spa available at the nearby Four Seasons Hotel. Or Paris Perfect recommended hair colorists/stylists in the area and masseurs who will come to your apartment! We could go on and on, but you get the drift, right? At a 30% sale price again, this place is currently being offered for €359 – €496 ($490 – $675) a night.
As you must’ve realized, Paris Perfect doesn’t just find you the perfect Parisian apartment (as the name already suggests) but also offers insider tips, fabulous Paris tours, and recommendations for the best dining destinations. Little reason not to log on right away then! Speaking of, guests who book a stay using the referral code “ROMANCE” before August 15th 2014 at www.ParisPerfect.com will receive a welcome basket that includes Parisian macarons and vintage-style Paris picture frames. Having said all that, you do know the one other thing you must do when in Paris – Paris Picnic! Happy Bastille Day or ‘Joyeux Le Quatorze Juillet!’
