What will I do when I'm not within walking distance of Poilâne Bread here in Paris? How will I survive without daily visits to grab le petit pain aux raisins? It feels like MY neighborhood!
While we stayed in a (gorgeous) hotel for the first two nights, we also wanted that living-like-a-local experience that is so popular for travelers right now. Upon recommendation of my aunt, we used Paris Perfect and had the best experience start to finish. The location in the 6th arr. is fantastic - everything we've loved most in Paris is right outside our door. And we are a three-minute walk from two of my favorite cafes - La Palette and Cafe de Flore.
Our apartment is gorgeous. The owner works for Sotheby's and lives in London and I wish I had his taste (I beg my friends for design help). For cons, the bathroom is in a little alcove above the kitchen and you have to sit down when you take a shower but I suppose that's part of the charm of a 17th-century building (Yep. Hundreds of years old. Thankfully, the WiFi is fast).
It's all about location in Paris and we chose carefully. I am already sad to leave my "home!"
*This table quickly became covered with loads of our belongings, swept off the table for when we cooked at home. But it looks so pretty in this picture!*
