Review 4250: Paris Perfect, Chardonnay
2bed/2bath apartment in 7th arrondissement, Paris
June 2009, 10 days
Chardonnay's superb location in the 7th arrondissement allowed my family and me to fully take advantage of Paris' extensive public transportation system, as the buses and the Pont de Alma metro stop were only footsteps away. Anything we could ever need could be found within minutes of Chardonnay, including the wonderful market at Rue Cler. We can't imagine staying anywhere else now!
Chardonnay's location could not have been more excellent. The apartment is about four blocks away from a Supermarche, and only a bit further to the famous Rue Cler Market (a chef's dream!) There are plenty of restaurants within one block of Chardonnay, and we can't wait to return and try all of them!
Chardonnay is situated at the end of a (surprisingly!) quiet street in a beautiful blue and white building. The apartment is footsteps from the Champ de Mars and Tour Eiffel, and shares the level with only one other apartment.
To our delight, Chardonnay had a beautiful balcony with antique tables and chairs that allowed us to enjoy our breakfast every morning (fresh pastries from a bakery nearby!) while admiring the breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower. The children especially loved sitting on the balcony at night and watching the Eiffel Tower's light show.
Chardonnay was beautifully appointed with antique furnishings and modern appliances and pieces that blended perfectly. I could go on forever about Chardonnay, but will try and just highlight my family's favorite parts (which will be very difficult!) The gold French antique daybed in the living room was exquisite, and also extremely comfortable - one of my favorite napping spots! My daughter was equally delighted with antique wash basin in the powder room. We were all charmed by the second bedroom with its unique European pull-down bed and custom drapes (which could be easily released to give sleepers more privacy). During the day (when we pulled up the bed) we relished this room as a reading room and second living room. My absolute favorite part of Chardonnay were the huge French windows in the living and dining room that opened onto the balcony. I loved being able to open them to step out onto the balcony and enjoy the gorgeous view of the Champ de Mars and Eiffel Tower. We all agreed that the decor and furnishings made us feel liked true Parisians.
I appreciated being able to prepare a full meal for my family in the newly refurbished kitchen. The refrigerator felt brand new, as did the many other Miele and Grohe appliances. The kitchen was fully equipped with beautiful dishes, pots, pans, and silverware all for our use (which made preparing meals very easy). We were all thrilled by the beautiful Nespresso machine provided for our use.
Problems or Bonuses
We never imagined waking up to a view of the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars!
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I would, in a heartbeat, recommend Paris Perfect's "Chardonnay" Apartment for your next vacation in Paris! It exceeded our expectations, and my family and I can not imagine staying anywhere else now. Merci beaucoup for an absolutely wonderful stay in Paris! Staying in Chardonnay was an extraordinary experience and truly made our trip unforgettable. Chardonnay was a very generous size and easily accommodated my family of five.
