"Paris Perfect is Perfect!
For some time now we have been promising ourselves to spend more time in Paris. Hotels have been OK for a short stay but to be real Parisians only an apartment would do. After what seemed like months of research we chose Paris Perfect which had great ratings and excellent listings. We were thrilled with our choice Castillon at 25 Place Dauphine.
This beautiful Apartment is in the very center of Paris on the Ile De La Cite only minutes from everything. Notre Dame Cathedral is just a couple of blocks away on the island and the hip Marais, where my wife took wonderful Ballet Classes, is only a few minutes away. A few minutes in the other direction is the Art Gallery and Design district of the 6th Arrondissment (with Restaurants and Movie Theatres galore). There are also 6 charming restaurants directly on the Square with one that even delivers to the Apartment.
25 Place Dauphine is an Apartment Building fully renovated a year or so ago, with a small charming lobby and a large (for Paris) elevator. Our Apartment Castillon was located on the 3rd floor with views from the living room and bedroom of the beautiful and peaceful Place Dauphine. The Apartment was fully and elegantly furnished in a mix of contemporary and French decoration. The modern kitchen has a full sized refrigerator (a rarity for Paris) microwave, stove, induction range as well as a dishwasher and washer dryer. It also has first class dishes, pots and pans and anything else you could think of and need. A very pleasant surprise was a Welcome package of basics such as milk and wine (after all it is Paris).
The living room and bedroom are comfortably and fully furnished with elegant details such as a chandelier in each room and gold leaf mirrors. TV's with US and foreign channels are in both rooms and unlimited free telephone call to the US and many other countries.
The Italian Bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in with deluxe French linens and Restoration Hardware stylish bed spreads. The good-sized Bath has a large walk-in rain/handheld shower and heated towel racks with lots of fluffy towels. There is also a quite large second room with toilet and sink. Very nice soaps and shampoos are also provided.
We chose a winter rental (to coincide with the annual sales) and while Paris winters can be cold they are often sunny as well and the Apartment has excellent individually controlled heating and Air conditioning.
We are very frequent Business Travelers but have never taken so enjoyable a trip. We felt like real Parisians if only for a couple weeks. The local Paris Perfect team couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the person who met us to welcome and orient us to our Apartment was outstanding. Our only complaint is 2 weeks simply isn't enough time. We are now planning our 4 week stay for next year.
