Enjoy endless romantic evenings in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower at the Saint Emilion, a sumptuous Paris Perfect apartment with all the flair and style of its 7th arrondissement setting.

The lengthy sofa, which also converts to two single beds, overlooks two sets of French windows and the ensuing front-row Eiffel Tower vista. The dining nook, located just steps away, is the perfect setting for purely romantic meals with the glittering lights in the background, while the kitchen, decked in sleek wooden cabinets and rich tile, is an inspiring starting point for gourmet meals. Two bedrooms are found at the Saint Emilion, including a compact bedroom with two single beds, and a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Both rooms have gracious windows, soft white and butter yellow accents, and a bevy of built-in storage to maximize space and effortlessly store those accumulated treasures.

About Paris Perfect
Our Paris apartment rental business started with one special pied-à-terre located on the Left Bank near the Eiffel Tower. Friends and family loved staying there for the fantastic Paris views and the location – walking distance to cafés, landmarks and wonderful shops. They enjoyed living like a Parisian, shopping in the nearby open-air markets for the freshest foods, buying warm baguettes next door, enjoying café au lait on the balcony and eating at affordable brasseries and restaurants just around the corner where locals dine. We have a passion for sharing “la vie Parisienne”—the authentic Parisian lifestyle—and our goal is to help you fall in love with Paris while discovering, exploring, tasting and savoring new sights and experiences in this incredible city!

Why Paris Perfect chose Kensington
The decision to choose this apartment was simple: location, location, location. We chose the 7th arrondissement on the Left Bank of Paris after a long search, because it was the absolute best location we could find – combining a lively village-like atmosphere with an unbeatable location in the heart of Paris. Financially it was a stretch but it has been worth every penny. We wanted to live in a beautiful quartier located near the romantic Seine river, surrounded by bistros and shops and walking distance to classic Parisian sights including the Eiffel Tower. We also wanted a safe neighborhood, centrally located with easy access to landmarks, museum and fabulous open-air markets and specialty food stores. The 7th offered it all!
We loved the fact that the 7th has maintained its unspoiled village-like feel where we greet our butcher, baker and local cheese specialist daily. They know our favorite cheese and just how thick and browned we want our baguette. That is what we wanted to find – an authentic and intimate Parisian neighborhood. .
We tried a variety of neighborhoods and the 7th offered the best access on foot to everything we savor and enjoy about Paris: Paris landmarks, museums and monuments on the Left Bank, to world class shopping on the Right Bank, to the antique dealers on the Rive Gauche, to the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre, Rodin Museum, Eiffel Tower and even the Arc de Triomphe. We can walk to discount stores in the quartier next door, enjoy morning jogs and bike rides in the lovely Champs de Mars gardens across the street, take a sunset walk along the Seine to Place de la Concorde and home along the riverbank.
What makes this apartment unique
Our Saint Emilion apartment rental in Paris is one of our most romantic, with incredible straight on views of the Eiffel Tower, the Champs de Mars Gardens and the cafés and shops below. Guests tell us time and time again that watching the nightly lights on the Eiffel Tower from their balcony was the highlight of their vacation.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed a wonderful week in Paris staying in the Saint Emilion apartment which was beautiful and well appointed. We are a family of 4 and the apartment was the perfect size. What a treat to sit at the dinning room table and have the Eiffel Tower right out the window. The view was stunning! Everyone at Paris Perfect was professional, helpful and friendly from our first phone call to the welcome greeting the day we arrived. Would recommend them in a minute.
