Paris Sunshine at the Charming Médoc Apartment !


Medoc Paris Perfect Vacation Apartment Rental

I come to Paris every few weeks and the Paris team always ask me to stay in a different apartment so I can “kick the tires,” so to speak, by seeing if there are any repairs and improvements required. Then I send a punch list to the team, who get to work making improvements and (hopefully minor) repairs as soon as possible.

On a recent trip at the end of a long and hard day, I opened the door at the Médoc apartment rental and my spirit rose! It was wonderful to be greeted by the cheery reds, comfortable sofa and chairs and an impeccably clean and sunny apartment!

This apartment is compact, but so beautifully furnished with sunlight, balconies and rooftop views that it makes a perfect nest in Paris

I hadn’t visited Médoc in a little while, but when I stepped inside I remembered all over again why I love staying here. It’s pretty, quiet, with 2 small balconies, charming views from the front and back — and the most gorgeous sunlight!

Compare stepping into this charming apartment with a Paris hotel room and it wins hands down. Most hotel rooms are the size of this living room alone and don’t offer a kitchen, dining area, similar sized bedroom and comfort.

We’ve remodeled the Médoc for the owners twice since purchase. One of the decorating problems — a curved white wall — became an opportunity when we discovered this beautiful trompe-l’œil panel of an old bookcase. I dropped my briefcase and quickly took a few photos. This demonstrated one of our key rules!

Love the trompe-l’œil bookcase we found in Paris! Guests have asked where they can find a similar one. Stay tuned…. we’ve met the company!

No Extra Lights Rule! This is one of our important rules when looking for a great Paris rental apartment. And an even more important rule if you’re looking to buy a Paris apartment. Notice the chandeliers in the mirror. They are turned off! Sunlight streams in and you just feel happy.

Step thru the living room into the sunny bedroom and the sunshine continues thanks to the upper floor location. The balconette and rooftop views are really something special.

The compact Médoc apartment is more charming and better located than $2,000 hotel suites in Paris!

Starting your day in the sunny kitchen is just as appealing. With the open plan and well-designed kitchen with antique style chandelier and french oak dining table, you’ll look forward to coffee in the morning and relaxing dinners at home when you don’t feel like going out.

The kitchen and dining table mean you can shop at rue Cler’s famous open market street nearby and dine at home, enjoying the views of Paris rooftops!

Stroll to rue Cler for piping hot croissants and baguettes. Our favorite cheese shop is here, too. Select from their recommendations along with a bottle of wine next door — what better way to enjoy a simple evening in your Paris apartment!


Apartment living is the only way to go in Paris! When a cup of coffee sets you back almost $12 in a café, enjoy cappuccinos in your own beautiful Paris apartment.

I woke early the next morning and watched the sunrise over the Invalides. Pulled out my trusty Panasonic to take this amazing picture of a Paris sunrise from the living room and even the bed in the bedroom!

Wake each morning to a Paris sunrise from your apartment with rooftop views…

One of our suggestions for Paris visitors and buyers looking to purchase in Paris is to find the higher floors so they can enjoy the light even in winter, when the sun sets at 3:30 pm.

 Just one more peek– nothing is better in a Paris rental than large windows, natural sunshine and rooftop views!
