for Champagne Apartment
by Michael D & Tim E, United States
"We visit Paris often, in fact, I used to live there, so for me there is no experience quite like being in ones own apartment. This apartment, Champagne, was perfect for us. We came for 10 days finishing the weekend of Valentine's Day. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.
I speak french, and Tim does not, but in the 7th Arrondissement, near the Champs de Mars, and the Eiffel Tower, one can easily get by with English. The apartment has free WiFi so it was easy to research the best boulangeries and markets in the area. There are several on the same street as the apartment, but if you walk about 10 minutes, there is an exceptional boulangerie on Rue de Grenelle, where I bought fresh bread and pain au chocolat, croissants, apricot pastries and more, every morning. There is a wonderful coffee store with a wide assortment of coffees, which they will grind for you. The apartment has a drip coffee maker as well as an espresso maker and if you are American, like me, you need your morning coffee to start the day.
The view or should I say "VIEW", is amazing. Seven Large french windows open onto a wrap around balcony, with two sets of chairs and small tables, and they all have that marvelous view of the Eiffel tower that one never gets tired of. No photo can do it justice, and it's dazzling at night when it sparkles, with thousands of lights, every hour, on the hour.
The kitchen is remarkably well appointed and stocked with everything you might want. I am a cook and was worried that I would have to buy a lot of things, but aside from spices and the food itself, I had everything that I needed. There is also a wonderful butcher just across the street with wonderful fresh fare. The Rue Cler has a wonderful market every Sunday, and it's only about a 10 minute walk. We bought armfuls of beautiful fresh flowers and filled every room, when we arrived and it was the only addition we needed to feel absolutely at home.
The toilet is separate from the shower area and very small, but I was used to it, from my 5 years, living in the city, when I was younger. The bathroom, however, is quite large even by hotel standards, no bath, but a large walk in shower, a double sink and a washer dryer combo in a cabinet, very handy.
The staff at Paris Perfect are only one block away and are available buy telephone and online, to help with anything you might need. The telephone, in the apartment, is included, and very handy. Their English is perfect and they will help you out, as they did help us a couple times.
I can't imaging going back and staying anywhere else. A hotel has it's limited charm, but cannot compare with this 4 room dream of an apartment. I can't recommend it more, although, I probably shouldn't, or it may be occupied, when I want it again.
Go and see Paris, as it should be seen, like a Parisian."
