There’s a modern air conditioner that covers the living room and bedroom for those few warm days in Paris.

Stepping outside, visitors of the Grenache will be introduced to a gorgeous world of Paris attractions. The Eiffel Tower, world-famous attractions and a collection of museums are all found in this chic central neighborhood, including the Musee' d'Orsay, Napoleon's Tomb and the National Army Museum at Les Invalides and the romantic Rodin Museum.

About Paris Perfect

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!

You invest a lot to come to Paris and we want you to enjoy every minute, from the moment you wake up in the morning and buy buttery warm croissants around the corner to enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset behind the Eiffel Tower. We know you have dozens of options to evaluate on VRBO. We have nearly 20 years of experience finding the very best vacation rentals in Paris. What makes our apartments unique is that they’re beautifully decorated, welcoming and located in the best and safest locations in Paris. Most of our apartments offer stunning Paris views for memories of a lifetime. Most important, there is a friendly English-speaking team available onsite seven days a week to help you in every way. They are there to offer a warm welcome when you arrive, to answer questions and help you feel at home.

You’ll love living like a Parisian surrounded by a charming Paris neighborhood and strolling to landmarks and monuments nearby. Our apartments are located near lovely open-air markets where you can shop alongside Parisians for the freshest foods to enjoy at your home away from home in Paris. That is what we want you to experience in Paris, so you’ll come back again and again!

Paris Perfect purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Paris Perfect chose Gros-Caillou

We tried many Paris neighborhoods and the 7th arrondissement in Paris offered the best access to everything we love and enjoy! Step outside your apartment and enjoy café’ au lait on rue Cler on a sunny morning, stroll to Paris landmarks, museums and monuments, to world class shopping on the Right Bank, to the Orsay Museum, the Louvre, Rodin Museum, Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Grand Palais, American Library. Take morning walks, picnics & bike rides in the Champs de Mars gardens, to romantic walks home along the river at sunset. It’s a beautiful old quartier near the romantic Seine that has maintained a village-like atmosphere, surrounded by bistros and shops so you can step outside and savor life. It's one of the safest arrondissements in Paris; it offers more open air markets than any arrondissement in Paris. It costs more to invest in the 7th, but to us, it is worth every penny. We greet our butcher, baker and local cheese specialist daily. They know what our favorite cheeses are and make favorite suggestions. They know the exact kind of baguette we want each day, not too brown and crusty for soft cheese. That is what we have been lucky enough to find in our neighborhood and we hope you’ll have a chance to enjoy the same special lifestyle.

What makes this apartment unique

One bedroom apartment with balcony on a great little street. Great bakery across the street and tons of shops, brasseries and favorite restaurants around the corner. Walk to Paris museums and monuments, take the boat cruise a few blocks away and sail on the Seine. Can't beat the location at an excellent price.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“A cozy and comfortable stay in this beautiful little apartment. Thoroughly enjoyed this neighborhood of small shops, narrow streets, and families. We found this apartment to be amazingly quiet, especially at night. If you like to walk, this is a superbly located apartment. We had no need for the Metro. And best of all, we felt completely safe. By the way, the 2 young men we met at the office location couldn't have been more helpful. Good guys. Also, take the advice of Paris Perfect and book some tours with Fat Tire and Context tours. Highly recommended. “

The apartment was exactly as described on the website and the pictures are a true reflection of what we found. The apartment is extremely well located, with an easy walk to the Tour Eiffel (12 min) or Les Invalides (10 min). There are a number of restaurants, bakeries and pastry shops close by and also 2 groceries store (1 next door to Grenache, the other within a 3 min walk). There are numerous options for public transportation, with several bus stops close by. The team did a great job of providing useful information about Paris and the area around the apartment before we arrived. On the day of arrival, we were welcomed by a team member who explained how everything worked in the apartment. We used the services of Victor Taxi (recommended by Paris Perfect) for both transfers from and to the airport. The driver was professional and on time and we appreciated the service. We would definitely recommend the Grenache and Paris Perfect!

My stay in the Grenache apartment in Paris was wonderful. To be able to check in after a long 10 hour flight and just walk to shops in 5 to 10 minutes to procure food for my stay was great. The fromagerie on Rue Cler is awesome! Everything from an ATM not 5 minutes from the apartment to access to the metro and bus lines was wonderful. This was my third trip to Paris and staying in the apartment was much better. In fact after about 3 days I felt right at home and was sad to leave. The building and apartment were extremely secure, so no worries there. I believe anyone who stays in this apartment will have a memorable time.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in the Grenache apartment the first week of June. Our greeter (Sam) was very helpful getting us acquainted with the apartment. The welcome basket was especially nice after a day of travel from Amsterdam. Before we even unpacked we sat on the terrace for a glass of wine. We loved the Nespresso machine, even searching out the Paris Perfect office so we could purchase more coffees. And the bakery just downstairs was wonderful for my morning croissant and Tom's favorite "snail". We were in Paris during the high water which meant some museums and tours were closed, but we had the nice experience of meeting local Parisians as they came to the river to see how high the water had come on the statue that stands under the bridge near the Eiffel Tower with his feet (usually) out of the water. A local site we would not have known about. Love the apartment and the 7th district!!

To say we enjoyed Paris in the springtime would be an understatement. Paris Perfect was a delightful company to work with and our apartment, Grenache, was exactly as promised and in a beautiful neighbourhood in the 7th. Booking tours and museum passes through Paris Perfect was easy and saved us valuable time once we landed. Our greeter, Sam, was friendly and helpful. Add perfect weather and enjoy!

We had a delightful stay at the Grenache apartment in late September. While Paris is not terribly crowded at this time of year, it was still nice to escape the tourist areas to our own quiet neighborhood. The apartment was very nice and gave us more options to relax and dine. It was great to pop across the street in the morning and pick up fresh croissants for breakfast (they have the best ones in the neighborhood and they're only steps away!). It was also nice to find dinner in the markets on Rue Cler (only a 5 minute walk) and bring it back to the apartment in the evening. The Paris Perfect staff was terrific. We stopped by the office a few times during the week and someone was always there and ready to help. If you are considering a stay in one of the apartments, you shouldn't hesitate. I frequently travel for business and spend a lot of time in hotels (so I'm a relatively independent traveler) but I can't imagine a better way to spend a week in Paris.
