Deep-seated history meets a touch of modernism in the Colombard, a masterful one bedroom apartment located within a historic building in the heart of Paris’ incredible 5th arrondissement. Just steps away from the River Seine and an accompanying view of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, the Colombard’s location in the heart of Paris is nothing short of outstanding, and patrons will enjoy effortless access to the Latin Quarter, the trendy Boulevard Saint-Germain and a bevy of local sites and streets that represent Paris at its most alluring. Stop by the famous Shakespeare & Company bookstore, explore the medieval streets of the Ile St-Louis Island to soak up centuries of history or spend a morning picking up fresh produce and vintage souvenirs at the local markets. With a healthy dose of both tourist attractions and authentic Paris culture, the neighborhood surrounding the Colombard is sure to appease both Parisian newcomers and experienced travelers who want to delve into the center of this romantic city.
The apartment is a treasure in its own right, with arched doorways, rustic wood-beamed ceilings and an abundance of charm. The living area is stylishly adorned with a blend of antique furnishings and contemporary décor. The sofa converts to a full-size bed for convenient additional sleeping accommodations. The master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and soft lighting overlooks an adjacent cobblestoned courtyard with seasonal greenery, while the bathroom with a bathtub, tile-lined shower, basin and toilet belies the Colombard’s historic atmosphere with modern fixtures and amenities. This also applies to the kitchen, which boasts all the appliances a visiting chef requires for well-prepared spreads, while the dining nook with natural light from an adjacent window and chic bench seating along one side combines these historic and modern worlds to create an intimate setting for leisurely meals.
In essence, the Colombard perfectly complements its setting, with a surprising and enchanting mixture of historic charm and modern style, and visitors to this Paris Perfect apartment are sure to be impressed by this decadent little slice of authentic and genuinely charming Paris life.
Our successful Paris Perfect apartment rental business began with one special pied-à-terre located on the Left Bank near the Eiffel Tower. Friends and family loved staying there for the fantastic Paris views and the location – walking distance to cafés, landmarks and wonderful shops. We have a passion for sharing “la vie Parisienne”—the Parisian lifestyle—and that passion fueled the creation of our boutique vacation rental company. Our goal is to help you fall in love with Paris while discovering, exploring, tasting and savoring new sights and experiences in the incredible City of Light!

Paris Perfect purchased this apartment in 2008
We loved the quaint neighborhood and being walking distance to the beautiful Seine and Notre Dame cathedral.
We fell in love with the country charm of this apartment and it's proximity to all of the major Parisian sights.
Charming, convenient and tasteful......So enjoyed the experience. Look forward to working with Paris Perfect again. Loved the apartment!
From start to finish, my experience with Paris Perfect was truly perfect! The staff was always quick to reply to emails, incredibly helpful, and went out of their way to make sure our stay was wonderful. The Colombard apartment couldn't be at a better location if Notre Dame is your favorite. While right next to ND, it was still on a quiet street. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished and had the most comfortable bed I've slept in at a rental unit! The owner went above and beyond in leaving sweet treats for us due to a minor repair that was going on in the apartment (one that we honestly wouldn't have even cared about). The staff was great about getting us nestled into our new home for the week, and helped arrange transport out, as well as mailing back our travel wi-fi (which I HIGHLY recommend getting) for us. Can't say a bad word about the trip - it was perfect! Big thanks to the PP staff!
Since returning home, not a day has gone by when either my partner or I haven't commented on how much we miss our Colombard apartment. Perfect size, location, and appointments. It truly made us feel at home in Paris. We'll definitely be back. A bientôt!
Loved our accommodation!
Location excellent. Amenities within the unit were excellent. Separate washer/dryer unit heaven. Extremely comfortable large bed, sofas and spacious rooms with lots of privacy. Airy, quiet, private...wonderful windows all around. . and very cosy and clean.
Great grocery shopping and easy access to buses or metro. Taxi stand within minute walk.
Full oven and fridge would have been nice for family cooking...we do stay long periods and have family there. Nonetheless. ..we certainly can still cook!! Induction cooktop great.
Will , once again, return .
A bientôt. ..et merci. ..
Colombard was truly Paris perfect! We felt very much at home---the apartment was spacious, beautifully decorated, and had all of the amenities. The street is very quiet, the neighbors were friendly, and we were just a two minute walk away from food shops on St. Germain where we bought our daily fresh bread, cheese, and other treats. It couldn't have been better.
Thanks to the Paris Perfect staff, and to Victor (their recommended driver) for a wonderful experience.
Wonderful location, a dream! Right across from Notre Dame so you start your day in the heart of things. Great neighborhood for food shopping, restaurants and the apartment is spacious for two people with the important pull-out in the living room if someone starts to snore. Nice shallow tub that was a lifesaver after 8 miles of sight-seeing a day! We loved the American style shower too. Comfortable bed. Just wish it had an ipod docking station or some music device. Be warned the walls are thin so neighbors can be heard quite clearly, but we were so happily tired it did not bother us at all!
