The first person I called when we had decided to plan our Paris vacation with kids was Amie O’Shaugnessy, founder of Ciao Bambino. Not only is Amie a fabulous, well-traveled business colleague and friend, but we also share a love for a luxury hotel room and I knew she would have some great recommendations on where to stay to maximize our experience in Paris with kids. On this trip to Paris with two children, we wanted to spend a portion of our stay in one of the city’s luxury Paris apartment rentals, but didn’t want to trade many of the perks that come with staying at a luxury hotel. She introduced me to Haven in Paris and I instantly fell in love, perusing the HiP Paris Blog and these gorgeous Parisian apartment photos. I also wrote a review of our luxury Paris apartment rental on Ciao Bambino.
Disclosure: We received a reduced media rate for our stay at the Haven in Paris apartment, but were not required to write about or express any specific opinions about our stay. As always, our opinions are our own.
Haven in Paris offers the concierge service you would expect from a luxury hotel, with all the comforts of living in a posh, Parisian apartment.
We settled upon a beautiful first floor, two bedroom/one bath Paris apartment rental in the St-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood (6th. Arrondissement), on the busy Boulevard St. Germain, Paris. Every detail was impeccable. I fell in love with the chevron-patterned wood floors, and the sights and sounds of Paris just outside our window each night.
Everything we needed was within close walking distance, including access to the Metro and many Paris attractions including Musee d’Orsay, the Louvre, Notre Dame and some really good shopping. St. Germain is full of many great french boutiques and big chain stores, and the only regret was not having enough time to do more shopping this trip!
Haven in Paris offers luxury concierge services including a private greeter, detailed guidebook for your apartment and surrounding area, restaurant recommendations, weekly cleaning, free unlimited calls from the apartment to the United Kingdom, Europe, France, USA, Canada, Australia, among other countries. Looking to pamper yourself even more? You can add-on any number of luxe services, such as spa, a private driver and much more.
Haven in Paris currently offers apartment rentals in Paris, London, Provence and Tuscany. I’m already thinking about our next trip to Europe and have been perusing Haven in Paris’ photo galleries to inspire our next European vacation!
