One of the greatest advantages of renting an apartment in Paris is having a fully-equipped kitchen that allows you to shop the local open air food markets, specialty stores and supermarkets.
It warms our hearts to share some of the sweet drawings and letters children have created for us in our apartment guest books. We invite you to view some of these special notes in our gallery, and to encourage your children to share their artistic talents and stories during your stay in one of our Paris Perfect apartments!

We manage them when they are not in residence including maintenance, cleanings, repairs and more.

Planning a summer trip to Paris and worried about being too hot in your Paris vacation rental? Planning the perfect holiday also means learning what to expect when you arrive. In many of our apartments you will find mobile air conditioning units since installing fixed units is not allowed in historic Parisian buildings. Here's what you need to know for a cool stay in Paris!
We select only the most beautiful Paris vacation rentals that have been fully remodeled top to bottom. However, as many of our apartments are located in beautiful historic buildings, there are sometimes limitations when it comes to updating bathrooms. There are also cultural differences regarding the size, design and features of bathrooms that you can expect to find during your stay in Paris.
Washing Machines & Dryers
To save you having to pack your entire wardrobe for your vacation, many of our Paris apartment rentals have the added convenience of their own laundry appliances. Where possible we have tried to install separate washing machine and dryers but, in some cases due to space restrictions we have to resort to using a combination washer-dryer. These combined units are popular amoung those living in apartments in the heart of Paris as they only need half the amount of space. Unfortunately they don't always dry as efficiently as a separate dryer so we recommend that you check the filter is clean prior to starting the machine, halve the drying load in the machine, and use drying racks to finish drying your clothes.
