About the property

Rare architect renovated 3 bedrooms adjacent Louvre Museum. VRBO since 2005

“Pad A Terre is unique on the Paris apartment rental scene”. TRAVEL AGENT MAGAZINE

Of British origin, I founded my company ‘Pad A Terre’ in 1999 as an alternative to 4-5 star Paris hotels for a discerning clientele seeking more space for less yet no compromise on their usual standards of comfort. Our unique offer, consistent commitment to professional business practice standards and service, strict adherence to market regulations ensure us a nice position in the high-end segment of a mass Paris’s vacation rental sector.

I have been working in partnership with Homeaway/VRBO since 2005.

We are a French Registered company (RCS Paris 480 984 533).

All properties covered by the PARIS TOWN HALL VACATION RENTAL LICENCE (a legal requirement in Paris).

We privately own all apartments. This makes us highly streamlined from a cost perspective. We don't rely on commission that you pay.

We embrace hotel standards of welcoming you as a guest and looking after you. Professional cleaning. Top quality bed and bath linens. You'll be met at your apartment by a trained and professional agent

Guestbook comments from the manager

ABNB REVIEW. THANKS JAMES - LOVED THE STAY. ......................................

The apartment is in a great location, really central. We were conveniently met at the property and showed round, James/Grace has also left us some milk, water, juice, and flowers which was a lovely touch and meant there was no rush to the supermarket! Bedrooms were clean and well appointed, beds very comfortable and for such a central location they are very quiet at night as they overlook the courtyard rather than street. The kitchen has ample equipment and you can cook easily. Living room has plenty of space and seating. We loved the apartment and will defiantly stay again!

Perfect 3 bedroom apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the St Honoré apartment was wonderful. The rental was well organised, check in agent very friendly and the apartment itself as described. We had plenty of room as a family of 7. Our flight arrived early and James organised for us to check-in well ahead of the scheduled time so we could drop off our bags. This made a big difference for us. The bedrooms are quiet and beds very comfortable, bathrooms really good quality. No complaints at all. The area could not have been better. Loads of restaurants, cafés and the Louvre is so close as is the Seine, everything we wanted to visit in fact. We did not use public transport but there's a main line metro stop a block away. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family. Thank you.

Paris Christmas

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as advertised and depicted in the pictures. The apartment had the feel of a hotel and not of a place where the owner moved out for a few days. The unit was updated, bathrooms were great, and it had all the amenities needed for our stay in Paris. The apartment was comfortable for six adults. We would recommend the apartment to our friends.

The area was fantastic. Restaurants, shops, museums, train, subway, grocery store, you name it, was all within walking distance from the apartment. The location could not have been better. Going to the grocery store made you feel like a local.

As visitors in a foreign country we followed the tips and memorized and quizzed each other on phrases from Rick Steves French Phrase Book & Dictionary. We got some incredulous looks and some laughs from the Parisians at our attempts at the French language. The people could not have been nicer!

The best part of our vacation was observing the historical sights and immersing ourselves in the French culture. The French are proud people and we are gracious for the hospitality that they extended to us.

Great apartment in the best neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Paris was everything we expected. Our experience with Jame's company Pad A Terre was flawless from first contact, communication, arrival and check out. The apartment is very comfortable, outstanding bathrooms and the beds, the best I've slept in in a hotel. Old feature likes beams add what to us felt like Parisisan charm. Our first vacation rental we won't look back. The apartment was full for our last night so we checked into a nearby hotel on James' advice and whilst it was ok, rooms were small and it cost us much more. You couldn't be better located here - the Louvre is literally a block away. When we come back to Paris we won't hesitate to use the services of James' company again. Thank your from all 6 of us!
