If, like us, you swoon over the chic Parisian apartments so often featured in glossy interiors magazines, the opportunity to be surrounded by said chic-ness is not to be missed. Guest Apartment Services specializes in letting high-end apartments on Île Saint Louisand in Le Marais districts, renowned for boutique shopping and atmospheric streetscapes.
Amaranth, in the buzzing Marais,, is a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern convenience, with elegant proportions (soaring ceilings, tall shuttered windows, generously sized reception rooms) and luxe comfort (feather-topped beds, five-star-hotel-quality bed linen and towels, and high-pressure showers).
A well-equiped kitchen and the apartment’s proximity to produce markets mean you can stop and cook, and there’s a plethora of impressive dining options nearby.
On weekends the area is a pedestrian-only zone; step out the front door and you’re in the thick of it. With quirky boutiques and elegant cafés drawing the crowds (tea aficionados will be delighted to know there’s a Mariage Frères salon just a couple of minutes stroll up the block), it feels like a street festival every weekend. If it’s breathtaking views you’re after, opt for the three-bedroom grandeur of Windows on Paris perched by the Seine in a magnificent Haussmann-era building. The 360-degree views take in landmarks such as the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and the Sacré Coeur.
Being serviced apartments, there’s help and advice on hand and nothing is too much trouble for the accommodating staff. We highly recommend the limousine pick-up from the airport – a most civilized entrée to Paris.
We love The charming personal service, especially from the owner, Christophe Chastel, who ensures all is right with your stay with out intruding on your privacy.
Two bedroom Amaranth costs $6000 per week, minimum seven-night stay. Rue du Bourg Tibourg.
Windows on Paris costs $6620 per week, minimum seven-night stay. Quai Voltaire, Saint Germain des Prés,
