The dream of Paris is to live like a local. Nearly ten years ago I discovered Guest Apartment Services Paris from a travel magazine and after several visits they
still 'deliver the dream'. Firstly their luxury apartments are perfectly located on I'le Saint-Louis just moments from Notre Dame Cathedral, or in the magical Marais districts of Paris. The apartments are furnished in true Parisian style, and they also offer some featuring contemporary decor. You never feel abandoned with a set of keys, as their warm and friendly staff provide a full concierge service six days a week and there is 24/7 contact available if needed. We always feel that we return as their friends, and their 'insider trips' on the latest charming restaurants at reasonable prices, access to tickets for shows and advice on what not to miss gives you 'the inside running' on your precious days in the world's most romantic city. The joy of Paris is to shop at the amazing produce markets and return home to your own kitchen to relax at the end of the day with a glass of wine, local cheeses, and not feel you have to dress up and go down to yet another hotel dinner! The apartments are spotless and Guest also provides a weekly housekeeping service (more if you wish). Being picked up upon arrival with their reasonably priced limousine service at the airport or train station also gets your trip off to the perfect start. There is a big range of carefully selected and expertly managed apartments to rent ranging from studios to 1, 2, 3 and 4 br choices. We especially love ROSE, AMARANTH, WINDOWS ON SEINE, and HIBISCUS but all are superb. They also represent incredible value considering the beautiful decor, inspired design, warm and friendly service of their team, and the chance to have many of your meals away from tourist restaurants. Plus, the extra space you have in your very own apartment, over a small hotel room whatever the price. No wonder so many guests like us return year after year and having experienced 'the real Paris', we would never consider a hotel stay in Paris again. This is also the perfect option for families, honeymooners, or for special anniversary celebrations. For discerning travellers (like us!) who want an authentic memorable visit to Paris a stay with Guest Apartment Services is the way to go. On our way home we are always dreaming of our next visit. The only hardship is trying to decide which of their beautiful apartments to stay in! Most recently we stayed in a beautiful classically French styled apartment called GARDENIA perfectly located on I'le Saint-Louis with the main windows looking onto a quiet garden and inner courtyard and within easy walking distance of many favourite Paris sites, restaurants and markets. To demonstrate the warmth of their welcome we arrived home one day to find a huge vase of peony roses on our dining room table which the two delightful owners of the company had picked from their very own garden! Each day we awoke feeling like we were living the dream of Paris and even my minimal French language skills began to blossom!

A part of Paris most tourists would overlook, but it's a little city within a city a haven from the bustle of the Paris outside.

We stayed in a Hotel on Ile St Louis. This is a wonderful part of town, quiet and quaint with many lovely restaurants, creperies, shops and cafes. We spent a lot of time walking about the island and enjoying the people and the culture.

This was a nice quaint area in Paris with a beautiful bridge. Nice area to stroll through casually and enjoy the more quiet nature when comparing to other areas in Paris. Less honking lol
