  • Excellent location in the Latin Quarter with stellar views of Notre Dame!

    "This 3 bedroom 6th floor apartment is perfectly location in the Latin Quarter with beautiful views of Notre Dame from the living room windows/balconies. There are even better views from the glassed in living area on the second floor as well as the private terrace where you can see Sacre Couer and the Eiffel Tower - truly charming. The unit is spotless and updated with a private elevator that opens directly into the living area. The rental agency could not have been better - email communication as well as our face to face meetings were excellent. The staff was so patient and thorough with us which we really appreciated. There is free wifi and a landline with free international calls. The linens were very nice but you might want to ask for flat/top sheets for the beds if you are used to them. These don't seem to be usually provided in Europe. We had a wonderful time and are so hoping to go back soon."

  • Pleasant apartment in great location

    "We just returned from a week's stay in Paris, and enjoyed the use of this apartment. Our group included my husband and myself, my father-in-law, and our two older kids/teens. I've only seen one other apartment in Paris in my life, and this rental was spacious by comparison (like NY and other big cities, I'm sure space is at a premium!). Anyway, the rental company was super responsive and very easy to work with. They arranged for someone to meet us upon arrival and quite early in the morning for our departure - both times their contact was right on time. The location of this apartment is excellent if you want to see the sites in central Paris (many spots - the Louvre, Notre Dame, etc. can be reached on foot (brisk pace) within a half-hour). Two metro stops are also very convenient as are a range of restaurants and a couple of grocery stores. One very positive aspect of this rental - even though the building (like most of Paris) does smell a bit smoky, the apartment itself is truly smoke-free (there is an air turnover unit that must do a terrific job). This made for a great retreat at the end of the day. In addition, there are heating units in each bedroom (great since we were there in winter), and the apartment was extremely clean and in great condition. There were only a few minor downsides: --The kitchen isn't as well stocked as many American rentals (for example, you won't find basics like spices, oils, flour, tea, etc... aside from salt), but we made do and were able to enjoy breakfast every day in the room as well as a couple of dinners. Numerous bakeries are located nearby (try Paul!). --We were missing a couple of pillowcases and had some trouble with the TV and dishwasher. They brought the pillowcases but we could never get the appliances to work. It wasn't a big deal b/c the wireless worked well and we didn't generate too many dishes, but I think including some instructions in at least French and English would be helpful for future renters. --You can probably tell from the photos, but the showers are not large. I doubt this is unusual in Europe, but consider whether this might be an issue if you're above sort of an average size. Not a deal-breaker, but worth considering. All in all, these were very minor issues, and we really enjoyed the use of the apartment!"

  • Paris in Winter

    "“This well placed little apartment is perfect for two with a little knowledge of Paris. The apartment is close to Notre Dame, Metro, a fromagerie, boulangeries, providores and markets and walking distance from the 6th and the wonderful shops and sights. The apartment is well appointed and perfect for 2 people (although it is sparsely lit and could do with some ceiling lighting). Access to the apartment was easy. Our introduction was extremely brief and not particularly welcoming but then again this is our third consecutive winter in Paris so there is not much new to learn. We had a very comfortable stay at Columbard and will definitely use your company again. “"

Paris Travel Tips

Paris, the City of Lights and love, is a top vacation spot - and for good reason. The city is filled with amazing culture, from art galleries, museums, to gardens, parks, cuisine and everything in between.

No matter which season you choose to visit Paris, it will offer exquisite images of architecture, fashion, food, people and landscapes. Situated along the River Seine, this city provides the perfect getaway location for a romantic trip for two, a fun family adventure or a solo journey to relax and unwind.

Historic Paris landmarks

Eiffel Tower: A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete with a visit to Le Tour Eiffel. It was originally built in 1889 for the World Exhibition to commemorate the French Revolution in 1789. It was only supposed to stand during the exhibition, but it was left for travelers to enjoy through the years and has becomes synonymous with the city itself. The Eiffel Tower features three levels for visitors. The first two have restaurants for visitors. From each level, you can take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the city and the River Seine.

Louvre: This art museum is one of the largest and most prominent in all the world. The Louvre, located in the 1st arrondissement, houses some of the most important works of art to ever be created including Leonardo Da Vinci’s "Mona Lisa," the "Venus di Milo," the "Bike of Samothrake" and Michelangelo’s "Dying Slave.” The museum’s first collection were the private acquisitions of King Francis I in the 16th century. Since then, the Louvre has expanded and now features over one million works of art, 35,000 of which are displayed for the public throughout three wings (Denon, Sully and Richelieu) ranging in time periods from Antiquity to the 19th century. Enter through the Louvre Pyramid or the Carrousel du Louvre and experience one of the most cultural hubs in the world.

Notre Dame Cathedral: Whether or not you’re a religious person, Notre Dame Cathedral is a beautiful Parisian landmark worthy of a visit. Located on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement, the Notre Dame de Paris, which translates into “our lady of Paris” in French, is a Gothic cathedral that serves as the the city's Catholic archdiocese. Notre Dame is considered one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture and features flying buttresses, stained glass windows and menacing gargoyles. Notre Dame still holds masses, but also serves as a favorite tourist destination for all who come to Paris.

Jardin du Luxembourg: Originally owned by the Duke of Luxemburg who gave the garden its name, this piece of land stretches about 55 acres and is laid out in an Italian style per Marie De Medici, who purchased the land in 1612. In the 19th century, the garden was opened to the public and redesigned in a French style while still preserving the original layout. At the garden’s center rests the Grand Bassin, an octagonal pond where children can rent small boats to float around. The Jardin du Luxembourg also features pony rides, a puppet theater and a merry-go-round to keep the kids entertained. For the adults, the garden provides exceptional scenic views and the perfect backdrop for an afternoon picnic. The garden is also home to two famous fountains: Fountaine Medicis and Jardins de l’Observatoire.

Other Paris Must-sees

Champs-Élysées: The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Parisian street full of luxury, haute couture shops, cinemas, cafes and is considered of the the most famous roads in the world. The Champs-Élysées stretches from the Place de Charles de Gaulle, the location of the Arc de Triomphe, to the Place de la Concorde. For the height of Parisian culture, wander up and down the sidewalks of this famous promenade to experience all of the sights and sounds that make Paris one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Moulin Rouge: Located in the hilly neighborhood of Montmarte, the Moulin Rouge, “red mill,” opened in 1889 as a new music hall. It quickly became an infamous dance hall that made the Can-Can famous and was one of the first venues in the city to use electricity. The Moulin Rouge explored the scandalous side of life and shocked many at the time. Today, the Moulin Rouge is still a popular place to visit while exploring Montmarte. The Can-Can has been toned down but is still the signature dance of the place. Visitors are sure to be entertained by high kicks and amazing acrobatics. Shows feature more than 100 performers dressed in extravagant costumes, but are still not suitable for young eyes.

Opéra de Paris Garnier: Famously known as the setting for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical "The Phantom of the Opera," the Paris Opera House, or the Opéra de Paris Garnier, can be found in the 2nd arrondissement. Construction began in 1862, but wasn’t finished until 1875 because a small lake was discovered and still exists under the opera house. Currently, the building is used mainly for ballet performances and was renamed the Palais Opera. The Opéra de Paris Garnier boasts stunning architecture, with a grand marble staircase and foyer featuring a mosaic ceiling and numerous chandeliers.
