for Margaux Apartment
by Barbara R, USA
"The Margaux was just perfect for our party - family members visiting from West Virginia & Florida in the cool Paris fall. The radiators provided just the right amount of heat and the towel warmers in the bathrooms were a delight (they were a treat for us Americans, who have not embraced this luxurious concept!). Although a bit too cold to dine on the terrace, we stepped out many times for: views of the Eiffel Tower - wonderful of course on the hour in the evenings, but also very moving in the morning fog - the shining dome of Les Invalides, the beautiful Ave. de la Bourdonnais and its great Haussmann buildings, and the well-kempt courtyard. By lowering the red awnings, we were able to identify and photograph the apartment from down below - wonderful photos through the autumn trees.
The morning light in apartment was very special and the view of sunrise from the terrace over Les Invalides was breathtaking. The attention to detail in the Margaux was appreciated - from the running lights on the pristine wooden floors to the beautiful tile work in the bathrooms to the spacious closets. Free wi-fi was much appreciated by all of our iPad users, and the free telephone was much appreciated by our 92-year-old mother who enjoyed our daily calls!
Coming back to the Margaux each evening after seeing the sights all day was like coming home. We would stop at Carrefour right beside the Ecole Militaire metro, buy our wine and cheese and be all set!
The ParisPerfect staff was Paris Perfect! Beginning with the storage of luggage once we arrived early and advice on things to do until we could check into the Margaux (e.g., visit Rue Cler as the shops open for the day, a cafe down the street with a TV so we could savor the American presidential election results, and Café Constant [a must for anyone] for lunch). Sam was extremely helpful and cheery as our Margaux greeter/orienter. And he personally delivered some extra pillows to us. And Lisa was wonderful as a go-between when we lost one of our party for an entire afternoon! And thanks to the housekeeper(s) - we tried to be neat, but that's a big apartment to take care of...
A word of advice: Do take the time to acquaint yourself with the 7th arrondissement, to stroll and window-shop and enjoy all that it has to offer. I'm afraid we were so busy seeing the "sites" that we missed much of what was right under our noses!
