About Paris Perfect

Our successful Paris 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!

Why Paris Perfect chose Gros-Caillou

The decision to choose this apartment was simple: location, location, location. We chose the 7th arrondissement on the Left Bank of Paris after a long search, because it was the absolute best location we could find – combining a lively village-like atmosphere with an unbeatable location in the heart of Paris. Financially it was a stretch but it has been worth every penny. We wanted to live in a beautiful quartier located near the romantic Seine river, surrounded by bistros and shops and walking distance to classic Parisian sights including the Eiffel Tower. We also wanted a safe neighborhood, centrally located with easy access to landmarks, museum and fabulous open-air markets and specialty food stores. The 7th offered it all!

We loved the fact that the 7th has maintained its unspoiled village-like feel where we greet our butcher, baker and local cheese specialist daily. They know our favorite cheese and just how thick and browned we want our baguette. That is what we wanted to find – an authentic and intimate Parisian neighborhood. .

We tried a variety of neighborhoods and the 7th offered the best access on foot to everything we savor and enjoy about Paris: landmarks, museums and monuments on the Left Bank, to world class shopping on the Right Bank, to the antique dealers on the Rive Gauche, to the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre, Rodin Museum, Eiffel Tower and even the Arc de Triomphe. We can walk to discount stores in the quartier next door, enjoy morning jogs and bike rides in the lovely Champs de Mars gardens across the street, take a sunset walk along the Seine to Place de la Concorde and home along the riverbank.

Small but comfortable with a unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

We hit the jackpot on our first trip to Paris by staying at the small but well-equipped Saumur on Rue Cler. The apartment is comfortable for two, is beautifully appointed and has everything a visitor needs for a 10-day stay. We breakfasted in our room everyday and prepared a lunch for our sightseeing. This was easy with the compact kitchen with ¾ sized refrigerator and freezer, microwave, every kitchen tool imaginable and room for food preparation. The Nespresso machine saw heavy use as well. The lovely dinette table with city views outside the windows and reliable Internet made breakfast, planning our daily itinerary and catching up with the world every day a pleasure. The balcony was another wonderful feature although the weather did not allow us to enjoy it for most of our stay. Dishwasher, washer/dryer, efficient shower/vanity, tight but usable shelf storage and closet were other essential amenities for a stay of a week or more.

The extensive documentation on virtually everything in the apartment as well as the friendly greeter who provided orientation our first day were other touches that made our stay smooth and trouble-free. The starter supplies of orange juice, wine, Nespresso cups and milk as well as soaps, cleaners and paper goods were well appreciated.

But as they say in real estate here in the States (and probably everywhere else), “Location, location, location”. It is here Saumur shines brightly.

I suppose there are other great locations to stay in Paris but it is hard to believe there are any better. Rue Cler has everything a visitor needs from cafes (we ate at three: Café du Marche, Tribeca and La Terrasse around the corner on Rue Bosquet), fruit and flower stands, bakeries, pharmacies, small supermarkets (we are partial to Carrefour for its hours and selection on La Motte-Picquet) and a day and night time vibe that represents the best of Paris city life. A demitasse of espresso or a glass of wine and a curbside table on Rue Cler is hard to beat for people watching or unwinding at the end of an evening.

For visiting the rest of the city, the Ecole Militaire Metro station is right around the corner with connections on Line 8 to virtually everywhere in the city including Versailles (at Invalides) and Chartres (at Montparnasse Bienvenue). And, at the end of the day, Carrefour is right at the Metro exit (open till 11:30 pm) for the next days supplies, dessert or wine.

We will certainly book Saumur again. It was Paris Perfection!

Saumur apartment, Paris

  • 4 of 5

We loved Saumur - it's perfect for 1 or 2 persons. Fantastic location--we loved being right on (and above) rue Cler. Our apartment was gorgeous! The windows and balcony were wonderful and made it feel very spacious. We also appreciated the big fridge, microwave/oven, dishwasher, and especially the washer/dryer combo. We looked forward to drinking Nespresso once or twice daily! Our only complaint is that the neighbors were quite loud - but it did make us feel like we were really living in Paris.

We appreciated all of our interactions with the Paris Perfect team, who were all really friendly and kind.

We also recommend Victor Cabs highly, who we booked through Paris Perfect. Victor himself picked us up and drove us to the airport. We unexpectedly ran into a problem when we were leaving (unrelated to Paris Perfect) and he went out of his way to patiently help us.

Saumur

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in Saumur for a week and it was absolutely perfect. The building was very quiet and the apartment was exactly as described and pictured. It was very roomy(for 2), comfortable and beautifully furnished.The murphy bed was easy to operate,very firm but comfortable.The kitchen had everything we needed, perfect set-up.The balcony would be wonderful in warmer weather.I liked being on the top floor and not hearing people walk above me.We loved the location right on Rue Cler. We always stay in the 7th and love shopping there and enjoy all the charming cafes in the neighborhood. The neighborhood definitely has the best bakeries in all of Paris. Our greeter Kevin was very friendly and professional and explained everything clearly.We can't wait to return to Saumur.

The apartment was perfect and provided everything we could have needed for our stay. It was cozy and comfortable. I was designed beautifully and really makes use of the space. Paris Perfect really does think of everything! Next time I am in Paris I will be sure to stay in one of their apartments.
