When you've had your fill of Paris shopping or if your partner prefers to avoid it altogether, there are two posh options for a drink, meal or afternoon tea, the Plaza Athenee and the Four Seasons George V. The Plaza Athenee, one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, is in the middle of the Triangle D'Or on Ave. Montaigne is worth a visit to enjoy the sumptuous surroundings and to watch for famous faces. Strolling home to our apartments is a pleasure; both hotels are a beautiful 10 minute stroll across the romantic Seine.
At the Plaza Athenee Hotel in Paris, you'll enjoy visiting the hotel where the last episode of Sex and the City was filmed. The price for a basic room starts at € 800 per night for two people. Our Paris accommodations and apartments for rent are excellent value in comparison. They are less than five minute's away on the preferred Left Bank, and cost less than half that amount for 4 people. Luxuriously remodeled, many have unforgettable views of the Eiffel Tower. Whether this is your first of 100th trip to Paris, there is something quite unforgettable about seeing the magical light show from your private Paris short term rental apartment at night, when 20,000 lights start to twinkle every hour for five minutes.

George V Hotel
The George V Hotel was completely remodeled by the Four Seasons Group. Since reopening, it has become one of the most popular destination hotels of Paris. It is a five-minute walk from most of our Paris Perfect apartments and a wonderful oasis after a day's shopping in Paris. For a very special meal, try the Le Cinq restaurant that has earned three Michelin stars. Or, savor afternoon tea in the live piano bar. You will delight in the original, stunning floral displays by Jeff Leatham, an American from Utah who is renowned throughout France as a 'magician fleuriste', a floral magician. He works for the George V fulltime and each week he creates a new, astonishing floral theme for the hotel.
A visit to the George V after your Paris shopping excursion will help you appreciate the value of luxury Paris rentals. At the George V, a basic room starts at € 815 per night for two people without a balcony or view of the Eiffel Tower . This is substantially more than our largest apartment which sleeps 8 and has a view of La Grande Dame de Paris. The George V's Romance Package starts at € 1,050 per night and doesn't offer the incredible views of this romantic Paris apartment on the Left Bank, costing substantially less.
