8 of us Girlfriends spent a week in Paris, 6 of us stayed in this beautiful apartment, and the remaining 2 stayed in a very charming apartment next door. The location is excellent, about a 10 minute walk to the Pyramid (entrance to the Louvre), even shorter distance to the Louvre/Palais Royal Metro Stop. The description is totally accurate and the pictures definitely depict exactly what you are about to experience. 3 good sized bedrooms, each with its own wonderful bathroom. Huge soaking tubs, great shower features. Beds were very comfortable. Good amount of closet space and drawer space. The kitchen was very well equipped, we were able to cook in the evenings, while sipping on our wine and sampling the local cheeses. We had 5 days of excellent maid service. We used the washer/dryer in the apartment, the appliances were very well maintained and looked fairly new. It is a part of the Palais Royal, so beautiful overlooking the gardens. We wonder which dignitaries might have stayed here in our apartment?!! The arcade below provided some great window shopping, ala Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, etc. There is a Monoprix a few blocks away for good grocery shopping, and an all night grocer right across the street. You will be able to walk from here comfortably to the Marais, the Louvre, Notre Dame, Opera Garnier, Latin Quarter, St. Germaine, Musee d'Orsay. The weather totally cooperated, we were able to walk 8-10 miles per day. This apartment provided the best home base for our 7 day stay. It was nice to all come back to our living room and recap our day, and plan for the next. The owners were always so responsive, had great suggestions on who we could call for shuttle service to/from the airport, private tours of the Louvre, food and open air Markets, a Highlight Tour, and an elegant dinner cruise down the Seine on my Birthday. They also met us with croissants, wine, beautiful floral arrangements. We never had to worry about a thing. We felt very safe in this area. HIghly recommend this property to anyone, it was perfect for my celebration. I have been to Paris many times, always staying in Hotels before. This will be the way I travel here from now on. I was fortunate to be able to find this perfect spot. We thank you!
