Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Enjoy endless romantic evenings in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower at the Saint Emilion, a sumptuous Paris Perfect apartment with all the flair and style of its 7th arrondissement setting.

The gracious living area is a royal delight, with a beige and soft sand color scheme that’s brightened with bold yellow accents. The lengthy sofa, which also converts to two single beds, overlooks two sets of French windows and the ensuing front-row Eiffel Tower vista. The dining nook, located just steps away, is the perfect setting for purely romantic meals with the glittering lights in the background, while the kitchen, decked in sleek wooden cabinets and rich tile, is an inspiring starting point for gourmet meals. Two bedrooms are found at the Saint Emilion, including a compact bedroom with two single beds (perfect for small children!) and a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Both rooms have gracious windows, soft white and butter yellow accents, and a bevy of built-in storage to maximize space and effortlessly store those accumulated treasures. The bathrooms, lined in delicate tile and featuring streamlined and contemporary fixtures, are modern additions to the overall classical space, and are ideal havens for preparing for a night out on the town. In addition there are 2 large mobile air conditioners to keep you cool.

Space in this apartment is limited and is a tight fit for 5 adults. It is more suitable for 4 adults and a young child.

On the streets below, Parisian fans will surely stay busy hopping from one iconic site to the next. With dozens of museums, landmarks and the show-stopping Eiffel Tower itself within walking distance, every day in this postcard-perfect neighborhood is an adventure, capped off with leisurely visits to the local cafés and indulgent shopping expeditions at trendy boutiques or along the Rue Cler market street. Take an evening stroll along the River Seine, or keep the kids entertained at the Champ de Mars playground across the street. Every day at the Saint Emilion can be transformed into a grand Parisian adventure, and all you have to do to enjoy the best of Paris is settle in, pick an exploration and dive right in.

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!

Paris Perfect purchased this apartment in 2008

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: 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.

What makes this apartment unique

Our Saint Emilion apartment rental in Paris is one of our most romantic, with incredible straight on views of the Eiffel Tower, the Champs de Mars Gardens and the cafés and shops below. Guests tell us time and time again that watching the nightly lights on the Eiffel Tower from their balcony was the highlight of their vacation.

The Saint Emilion was a fantastic apartment for our stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

“Wow! The Saint Emilion is a great apartment. It is convenient to great restaurants, a short, beautiful walk to museums and the view of the Eiffel Tower is amazing! It was even closer than the pictures suggest. Many nights we sat in the living room with the windows opened and watched the last light show. The Siene is only a block from the apartment if you want to walk, ride a bike or take a boat ride. Check in for the apartment was easy, it was clean and well stocked with high end appliances. There is everything you need to cook and dine. It was really nice to have the Miele washer and dryer. The apartment is in the 7th arrondissement which is a beautiful area of Paris. Even though the apartment was near the Eiffel Tower, the apartment was quiet and the neighborhood area felt safe. We would not hesitate to stay in The Saint Emilion again. We highly recommend the apartment and the ParisPerfect team.”

I went with my wife and 3 little children, and we had a great time. The apartment had a wonderful location, and was great for exploring. The taxi service recommended was perfect for dropping us to and from the airport, and the taxi even had booster seats for our little ones. The apartment was well laid out for everyone to get adequate rest for a nap time. The kitchen was great. The bathrooms were clean. The bathroom off the double beds starts off chilly, but once the shower is running the bathroom warms right up. It was close to some great shops and a 5 minute walk to the Batobus. We definitely want to go back to Paris, and we will book with Paris Perfect. My wife wants to try out one of the places closer to Norte Dame or the Louvre for the next time, so that we can thoroughly explore more areas of Paris.

We had a wonderful time, thank you. The best service we have ever received from a rental company. Everything was as promised and all your recommendations were exceptionally good and efficient ( Victor's car service, dinner boat cruise, restaurant recommendations etc).

The view is priceless! Every night we watched the twinkling of the Eiffel Tower just outside our living/dining room window. It was magnificent! The apartment was well designed and seemed much larger than the advertised 650 square feet. The six of us (two small children and four adults) had plenty of room. The apartment was well stocked with linens, pots, pans, dishes, etc and was very clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the neighborhood immensely. Paris Perfect arranged a kid's tour for us at the Louvre (Louvre Treasure Hunt) and it was perfect for our kids. They loved it and learned so much about the 6-8 works of art that the tour focused on. They will remember the Louvre with a smile!! There were minor problems with the air conditioning, but we were comfortable without it. The elevator was out-of-order for several days and the 120 steps up to the seventh floor got very old! It was probably good for us, though. Paris is an incredible city, and we enjoyed our stay at St. Emilion very much. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

We had a lovely stay in St. Emilion -- a comfortable, light-filled spot with an incredible view! Kitchen was extremely well equipped and easy to cook in. Bathrooms nicely remodeled. Full-size washer/dryer super. Master bedroom very quiet with good bed; we slept really well! Be aware, however, that the second bedroom is very small.

On our last day at this stunning apartment I cannot recommend it highly enough. We were a party of 4 adults, and although the apartment is compact, the space in such a magnificent area of Paris was perfect. "Paris Perct" as a company were without a doubt the most professional and well organised team I have ever experienced on my travels. The apartment is EXACTLY as advertised. Eiffel Tower view is unbelievable and although the apartment is compact, it suited our party of 4 more than adequately. There is amazing hidden storage for luggage etc, and the amenities and appliances are top shelf. Perfectly stocked kitchen utensils and the most extensive manual for all appliances I have ever come across. We were greeted by the lovely Verity who spent ages with us explains how everything worked etc, basic apartment rules and contact numbers for her assistance at any time. We had no reason to contact her at any time as everything was perfect .beds are comfy, towels are huge and fluffy, kitchen is stocked with everything you would require, air con works wonderfully, water pressure is great, gorgeous little stand on balconies to enjoy the tower view and plenty of natural light flooding the apartment during the day. Decor is quaint and very Parisian. Loads of gorgeous lrestaurants within walking distance as well as small supermarkets, chemists and boulengeries nearby. Initially I thought the apartment was a little pricey, but believe me, you get more than what you pay for. Thankyou "Paris perfect" you made our first trip to Paris absolutely PERFECT!. I highly recommend this stunning apartment and will most definitely stay again.
