Mr & Mrs Thomas from AUSTRALIA

We have recently returned from a trip to Paris, that most romantic of all cities, where we stayed for a month on the magical Ile Saint-Louis, the most romantic and beautiful place to stay in Paris. Many people don’t seem to have heard of this tiny island, adjoining Ile de la Cité, and it is a quiet oasis in the heart of Paris, tranquil and peaceful, yet close to all the major sight-seeing you’ll want to do. We discovered a wonderful company, Guest Apartment Services, Paris, who manage over 30 apartments on the island or closely adjoining it, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. First their web-site: the photos of the apartments we stayed in looked picture post-card perfect, but the real thing was even better. I’ll never forget arriving on a cold winter’s day in January and walking into this glorious apartment (Acacia), all bathed in afternoon sunlight and with fabulous views across the Seine of Notre Dame Cathedral on one side and the Pantheon on the other. It is like a room out of Versailles Palace, but with all modern conveniences and a luxury kitchen. Our eleven day stay here was all too short, and each day we had trouble leaving the apartment to go sight-seeing, as we had it all there in front of us. We even had a tiny balcony with table and chairs overlooking the Seine. I defy anyone to find a better place to stay in all Paris! For the remainder of the month, we stayed in another superb apartment, Arum, just across the other side of the river, with equally stunning views and so spacious, we couldn’t believe it. Here we were treated to Art Deco luxury and views across the Seine of Notre Dame and the Ile Saint Louis. All our luggage was, of course moved across for us! The wonderful team at Guest Apartment Services look after your every need, organising an excellent limousine service to take you to and from the airport, recommending and booking restaurants and sight-seeing tours, a mid-week cleaning service and in fact, anything you need to make your stay very special and perfect. Situated in the middle of the island, they are right on hand if you need anything, and cheerfully came over to show us how to use the television and to bring us extra coat-hangers. It’s like being in a luxury hotel, but with greater privacy and at a fraction of the cost. I can’t speak highly enough of this wonderful company. Since our return, they have offered to pick up our lost wallet from the police station and post it to us. They have a wide range of apartments on the island to suit most budgets and charge no extra for all their helpful services I will never stay anywhere else in Paris now that I have experienced the best.
