About Paula Harvan

I have been offering luxury holiday accommodations since 1999, with properties in Paris, the South of France, London and Napa Valley, California. Residential design and decor is my passion, and I strive to provide dwelling places that are more expressive, more beautiful, more comfortable than most vacation rentals. I live part-time in all these places. So each functions as a personal 'home' -- not just an impersonal rental property. So there are many things, both big and small -- from superb heating and air conditioning to an extensive French art glass collection to oyster knives, a sushi set and escargot forks -- that are not usually found in properties that are used exclusively as rentals. The hallmark of each residence is its personal style, which reflects its unique character and location. For example, my Paris penthouse, the top floor of a handsome Art Deco building with sweeping views of the Eiffel Tower and Parisian rooftops, is thoughtful designed with the idea of bringing the look and feel of skyscape and its light inside with a calm silver-grey palette sparked by carefully placed bursts of glass, chrome, mirrors and colour. My philosophy is that I would never rent a property that I would not stay in myself. So, putting myself into my guests’ shoes, I 'think of everything' -- as my many 'five-star' guest reviews confirm -- to make your stay a most positive and memorable experience.

Paula Harvan purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Paula Harvan chose 7th Arrondissement Eiffel Tower

If you read the many excellent 'five-star' guest reviews, they thoroughly answer the question, 'Why this property?' Personally, I lived in Paris for several years before purchasing the penthouse so I was quite familiar with the City and the profile of different arrondissements and neighborhoods. I chose this property and location because 1) I LOVE the Eiffel Tower, and the penthouse has fantastic views of it from 5 windows and the apartment itself if very light, open and airy, 2) the neighborhood is lively (with many cafes/restaurants and stores), safe AND truly Parisian. That is, it's not overrun by tourists so you really live like a local while you're here, 3) it offers convenient day-to-day living -- stores/services, such as post office, big and small supermarkets, an outdoor market are within a 2-5 minute walk 4) the penthouse is only one block from a convenient metro line that provides easy access to all major sights in the city and a five minute walk to the Champs des Mars, the huge park that surrounds the Eiffel Tower, which provides a great place to walk/run/and people watch.

What makes this apartment unique

I never tire of the stunning views of the Eiffel Tower from each of the penthouse windows. The view is especially inspiring from the window of fully-equipped office/study. So as I work, I can glaze from my desk (which is smack in front of the window) and see this marvelous structure. I also love the privacy of the penthouse, the conveniences (bakeries, food/convenience stores, wine bar) at are literally a 30 second walk from outside the building gates) truly Parisian neighborhood, and walking/exercising on the Champs des Mars, the park where the Eiffel Tower is located.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"LPR is an absolute gem and we will absolutely return (for a longer time!) Paula, you have thought of everything and it was all appreciated. We arrived back at LPR each evening of our stay, completely amazed that the Eiffel Tower awaited us yet again; it is a sight never to tire of."

Perfect Pied-à-terre

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fabulous apartment complete with all the amenities. Both Victoria, the manager, and Paula, the owner were attentive and responsive from the very start. The place was well equipped, spacious, and close to the metro as well as shopping. Really an ideal location and accommodation overall. I would definitely return and recommend it to my loved ones.

Just as good as everyone said

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful apartment ! And the view was spectacular !! Thanks to Victoria for picking us up at the train station .. She was great about getting us to the apartment

Wish we were coffee lovers, the coffee bar was incredible

Victoria pointed out a few places to shop - a Boulanger, grocery store, wine shop etc. A few suggestions

Don't make the same mistake we did when going to Monoprix - we didn't go in because it looked like a department store - upstairs is a wonderful grocery store - not to be missed !!

There's a wonderful Boulanger across the street from Monoprix called Poupart Piquot Patissier Boulanger Traiteur 115 Bd de Grenelle - green colored front - everything was delicious and the young man working there spoke English and very kind

Be sure to shop Rue de Commerce

When you go to the Eiffel Tower - go to the Trocadero metro stop and see the Eiffel Tower from there - it's across the Seine river and has a spectacular view from there ... Easy on easy off the metro

Mass at 11:30 at Notre Dame was really special - the choir sang like angels

St Suplice was a wonderful surprise

Just walking the banks of the Seine is special ... Walking is great - get lost and find new places to love

For a quirky tip - go to the Park Hyatt Vendome and have a hot chocolate or frozen hot chocolate - you'll get the best truffles ever ( in my opinion) don't be shy to ask for seconds - can't be purchased there, too bad ! Really good

Back to the apartment - Paula has everything you could want .. There is a scale in the apartment but it doesn't work ( might be the only thing that needs attention ) beautiful apartment

The shower and tub were wonderful- having a washer and dryer really great as well ...

The bed was like sleeping on a cloud

Thank you for everything Paula and Victoria

Perfect place to call home

  • 5 of 5

Flat was just as described. Great location, close to metro, walking distance to sites, bakery close by, grocery store across the street. Owner and property manager were very accommodating and very responsive. Bed was comfortable and lots of storage space. We loved watching the Eiffel Tower twinkle every hour. Will recommend this flat to friends and stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Comfy and modern

  • 5 of 5

Very nice room with great views of Eiffel Tower. Would book again. Elevator is tight but is modern and works well. Kitchen is also tight but well stocked with great appliances. Beautifully decorated. Bathroom was a highlight with great shower. Good restaurants and bakeries nearby. Great information binders and access to Paris guide books.

This is a lovely place to spend your time in Paris. We are very happy that we chose this VRBO. Paula obviously tries very hard to make this penthouse a "home away from home ".

Worth the wait..

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 8 nights in Paula's penthouse and it was just fabulous.

It is everything that the previous reviewers have mentioned - beautiful and smartly designed layout, wonderful local neighbourhood, clean and spacious. Also with Victoria meeting us at the airport to take us to the apartment was a stress free start to our stay. Paula has really put alot of thought into what the apartment offers so you can feel like a local - even down to the shopping trolley that you can take when visiting the nearby grocer or specialty food stores.

We had originally planned to stay at the penthouse last year and had to postpone our trip to Sep this year. I had already paid the deposit, and even though I cancelled for last year - I was able to use it as credit for this stay. I researched for a very long time to finally choose Paula's apartment and I am so glad we stayed here.

My husband and I are looking forward to returning to Paris and to stay here again. Thank you so much Paula and Victoria!

Owner's Response: Unlike most other vacation rentals, the Paris Penthouse has a very generous cancellation policy so guests never lose money if they have to cancel. Guests receive either a total refund or a combination of a refund/cancellation credit. This credit can applied to a future stay and can even be transferred to others! One more reason to choose the Paris Penthouse for your French holiday.
