We adore a Paris vacation rental with a little romance and a stellar location, which is why the Picardin is a beautiful new addition to the Paris Perfect portfolio. This sweet studio apartment has everything a couple requires for an indulgently comfortable stay, as well as a fantastic location that straddles the 6th and 7th arrondissements, which provides walking-distance access to Paris’ top attractions.
We’re firm believers that the details make the difference, which is why we were perfectly charmed by the interior of the Picardin. Fully remodeled from top to bottom and carefully decorated with love by the owner, you’ll notice the details the moment you step through the door. From the high-quality mattress and linens to the light touches of décor that top the ornate fireplace, the Picardin provides a lovely atmosphere that’s ideal for relaxing after a whirlwind city tour. We especially loved the stack of Paris guidebooks on the inset bookshelf, which will come in handy for our Parisian newcomers.
Guests will also be impressed by the collection of modern amenities, which includes a flat screen TV and DVD player, television with English-language channels, free internet and free calls to many countries around the world. The central area also boasts a sweetly intimate dinette for two, while the bathroom with vanity, built-in shelves and walk-in shower is both stylish and completely convenient.
Of course, what sets a vacation rental apart from a hotel room is the extra space, especially when it comes to kitchens. The kitchenette at the Picardin has a suite of appliances, including a two-burner cooktop, microwave and full-size refrigerator with freezer, which makes it easy for our guests to prepare meals at home. In the long run, we’ve found that this saves our vacationers hundreds on daily meals, beverages and snacks, while allowing guests to enjoy all the fresh local market delicacies with ease.
The star feature of the Picardin is the location. Start heading in one direction and you’ll be in the heart of the Saint Germain neighborhood within minutes to enjoy a wealth of boutiques, historical sites and iconic attractions. Take a walk and spend an afternoon at the famed literary café Les Deux Magots, pay a visit to the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church or enjoy an indulgent afternoon at the famed fashion houses and the Bon Marché department store.
Head in the opposite direction and the riverbanks of the Seine will come into view, complete with a world of attractions and Parisian charms. Take a stroll to the Louvre, the Tuileries Garden or even the Notre Dame Cathedral, or simply plan a daily evening stroll through the chic Rue du Bac to the Seine to catch the stunning nightly sunsets over the water.
With virtually every neighborhood block offering a new café, museum, attraction or boutique to discover, you’ll enjoy the very best of Paris with very little effort. With such a prime locale and a suite of amenities, the Picardin is sure to become one of our most popular vacation rentals, so be sure to Contact Us to reserve your stay today.
