Paris Vacation Rentals - Short Term Paris Apartment Rentals


Overlooking peaceful Place Dauphine on the Ile de la Cité, the Muscat is a beautiful one bedroom vacation rental set on the second floor of our exclusive 25 Place Dauphine building located on one of the most charming squares in Paris. Built in 1610 at the request of King Henri IV, you'll be surrounded by history during your stay at 25 Place Dauphine! We have completely remodeled the building from top to bottom, adding an elevator, the highest security digital locks and every modern convenience. Wonderful original details have been preserved, such as the incredible beams from 1610 that are highlighted in the Muscat apartment. With a sumptuous queen bed, en suite bathroom and additional powder room, you'll enjoy a comfortable stay. Enjoy cooking at home in the finely finished kitchen, and enjoy romantic dinners overlooking Place Dauphine.


Step outside and you'll immediately understand why Place Dauphine is one of the most coveted spots in Paris. Lined with buildings from the early 1600s, the square is full of trees and dotted with benches that are the perfect spot to sit and take in the historic setting. A popular spot with locals for a game of pétanque, you'll even hear the click of steel balls used in this traditional French game. Surrounding Place Dauphine are excellent cafés and restaurants that are popular with lawyers working at the nearby Palais de Justice, which means the quality is excellent!


Staying on the Ile de la Cité right in the heart of Paris - "Kilometer Zero" as it is called - means you're surrounded by all the best sights, museums, shopping spots and top neighborhoods to explore while you're in Paris. You can walk to all of them! Also located on the Ile de la Cité, a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral and to see the incredible stained glass at Sainte-Chapelle are a must. Cross over to the Right Bank on the Pont Neuf to visit the Louvre or explore the Tuileries gardens. Stroll along the Seine on the Left Bank to the Musée d'Orsay or explore stylish Saint Germain and meander through cobblestone streets in the Latin Quarter. Discover the beauty, romance and history of Paris at the Muscat apartment at 25 Place Dauphine!
