This gem of an apartment is located off the serene third courtyard of a charming old building. Its ground floor location permits you to enjoy the plantings in the courtyard through the windows and permits easy access with suitcases and the shopping bags you will inevitably acquire—and no puzzling over how to get your and luggage and you into a typically tiny French elevator.
Unleash your culinary creativity in the high-tech gourmet kitchen with stainless steel and marble appointments, triple ovens, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Relax at the dining table, which seats four, with your morning café au lait and a croissant from Stephan Secco, that famous bakery around the corner on rue Jean Nicot.
The lovely mirrored walls in the living room hide large closets, including one with electric hanging rods which play you a tune as they lower themselves to be within your reach. Wireless internet and unlimited free calls to North America and Europe ensure that your family and friends can be available to share your adventures. The apartment has been renovated to take advantage of every inch of its 45 square meters—lots of built-in storage—no tripping over your suitcases as you sip champagne in the living room.
Did someone say, “location, location, location?” The Number 69 bus is practically at your doorstep and passes so many famous landmarks that a ride is a sightseeing excursion in itself—including the Musee d’Orsay, the Louvre, the Hotel de Ville, the Bastille and Pere LaChaise Cemetery. But before you get on the bus, visit the treasury of boutiques on the rue St. Dominique—enough handbags, shoes and clothes to excite every shopper and to mesmerize even the non-shopper. Once the shops have closed, you can stroll to the Champs de Mars with its gardens, pony rides, puppet shows and carousels. At one end stands the magnificent Eiffel Tower which will sparkle like champagne bubbles each evening—just for you!!
Turn left from the apartment door and you are minutes from one of the most famous market streets in all of Paris, the rue Cler. Turn right and soon you’ll enter the Esplanade des Invalides, one of the city’s largest open spaces. Sit on a bench and learn a thing or two about boules from the old timers or just take in the breathtaking Hotel des Invalides with the golden dome of Napoleon’s Tomb in the background or the glass domed Grand Palais. Cross the River Seine from here and you find yourself on one of the most beautiful bridges in Paris, the Pont Alexander III—watch for the white limos and wedding gowns as many couples use this romantic back-drop to memorialize their special day. Indeed, your stay on the rue St. Dominique puts Paris at your fingertips.
As the owners of this property say, “Paris is always a good idea.”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in apt #203 - perfect space, perfect location, perfect vacation.
This was our first apartment rental for Paris, and we will definitely rent again the next time we are in Paris for longer than 4 days.
It's so convenient to have a kitchen available for breakfast and snacks after a long day of sight seeing; not to mention a relaxing glass of wine and some great fromage!
The 7th is a great neighborhood were we always stay, but this time, we felt like the locals carrying our baguette back to the apartment.
The amenities were comfortable and spacious for Paris standards. Our only critique is with the lumpy & flat bed pillows, please get new pillows.
Otherwise, thank you for making our stay comfortable and safe, home away from home.

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. It has an intimate feel from the inside, but once you leave you are immediately in the middle of a neat little neighborhood and just a few blocks from the heart of the Marais as well as the Bastille (not to mention Notre Dame and the Seine). We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

My husband, sister. and I love this apt. After we closed the door we couldn't find the door to get out. The door on the inside is covered with a mirror which is part of a mirrored "wall." Also, it took a bit to figure out how to make the second bathroom private. When you enter the apartment from the hallway the sink is on your right and the toilet on your left. With clever manuevering of the doors you can have a completely private bath but when in use, no one can enter the apartment. Still, a very good deal to have a second bath.
Needs a place in the master bedroom to hang a few items and a small chest with drawers with a seat on top to do double duty or consider putting the bed on a platform that has drawers. The bed is amazingly comfortable. A folding screen would be great to provide privacy for those sleeping in the living room from those accessing kitchen. Master bath is heavenly but missed having a soaking tub.
As soon as you walk out of the complex you are immediately surrounded by shops and eateries. Having the Eiffel Tower within sight and easy walking distance was glorious. (Plan on going to one of the jewelry stores on your street to buy a nice gold Eiffel Tower pendant as a souvenir!) There are fabulous restaurants down on the left from which you can get a wonderful meal while watching the Eiffel tower light show.
We did take bus 69 down to the Louvre twice. We toured the Louvre on Wed eve for the reduced price. (beware of gold ring scam.) We breezed right through and went straight to see the Mona Lisa. Be prepared for many, many steps. After touring 3 sections we took the Batobus back "home" getting off at the Eiffel tower where we had dinner, then strolled home.
I spent much time and many phone calls to select from the many housing options offered by VIP. Staff were ALWAYS patient and helpful. I made the BEST choice.
If you take a cab to the airport be sure you are at your airline before getting out of the cab!

You could not find a nicer apartment in a typical Paris location. Location is perfect, close to wherever you want to visit. You will enjoy your visit to Paris while staying at apt. 203.
