Our Guests’ Comments for St-Germain Chic Two Bedroom

Dates: December 2016 
Sydney
When my mother and I arrived in Paris, we were greeted by Daria who 
showed us the entire apartment and all of its' amenities. It was a 
beautiful apartment, in the St. Germain area, walking distance to 
shops, restaurants, and the famous Eglise Saint Sulplice. You could 
hear the church bells ringing in the afternoons around 6:30PM, which 
was a particularly lovely touch. We loved this apartment so much that 
we are planning on using it on all future visits to Paris!

Beautiful large apartment, right near in the heart of St Germain. Immaculately clean and extremely gracious hosts right from the initial greeting to the checkout. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Dates: February 19-26, 2016.  We rented the two bedroom chic Saint-Germain apartment and throughly enjoyed it and loved the location.  We have rented for many years from Alex(PVA) actually probably one of his first rentals at the Palais Royal and continued staying there for many years and referred many of our friends to the apartments. We have used other locations over the last few years and always found the apartments to meet our expectations.  We like staying in all these apartments because we know that we will be getting a well furnished, clean and well stocked apartment ( most of the time) and if we need anything or have questions we only have to place a call to the "team".

Dates: February 21-March 01, 2013.  This was our first stay in a PVA apartment, having rented from many others privately.  We can say, without doubt, that the rental process was superb, and the building and apartment were the best (light, location, size, comfort level) we’ve experienced in the city of light.  There were four of us staying, and all of us had an appropriate amount of privacy as well as excellent shared spaces for conversation, meals, and catching up after our busy days. The most salient feature of this apartment is the height of the ceilings, nearly matched by the windows.  Light poured in, making even dismal winter days feel glorious.  The furniture was more than comfortable and attractive – with a lovely couch on which to stretch out, two chairs facing one another, and a dining table that could seat all of us and more. We found ourselves stretching out our breakfasts, because we were enjoying the physical space so much, rather than rushing out to tour.  Lingering, after all, is what Paris is about.  Thank you PVA team.  We rate your space and services as top notch!

Dates: November 04-11, 2012.  We were extremely happy with the apartment and everybody of the team we were in contact with. I truly don't know what you could do better. Since nearly 20 years we spend every year a long weekend or even two in Paris. We stayed in cheap, expensive and very expensive places (hotels and apartments) and finally we found the kind of accomodation that fits best. It would be great to rent free apartments last minute for less than a week...

Dates: June 08-18, 2012. Our apartment was exactly as described and pictured on the PVA website. The moment we entered the huge doors from the street into this lovely old apartment block, the meticously clean foyer & staircase welcomed us to our Paris 'home' for 10 days. The location was fantastic for us, in a wonderfully quiet street just around the corner from the Luxembourg Gardens- we had a number of walks there. The apartment was spotlessly clean, spacious, very comfortable & we experienced no noise from any neighbours. The bedrooms were very large with lots of space for our suitcases and good hanging space. The living/dining room & bedrooms were light filled all day thanks to the large french windows. Heavy curtains and good beds ensured a great nights sleep. Our kitchen was well equipped and a large fridge stored all our gourmet goodies from the local markets. The near new Meile washer & dryer were easy to use for our laundry. Each morning we bought croissants from the local Boulangerie and enjoyed the nearby restaurants recommended by PVA. Our 10-15 minute walk to the River Seine through the wonderful streets of Saint Germain on our way to all the Paris sights was always a delight. Metro stations were close by and we felt safe walking the local streets late at night after dining & sightseeing. Free international phone calls home was fantastic for us being tourists away for 5 weeks & we had reliable free Wi-Fi access. There is a real sense of calmness & wellbeing in this apartment. The furnishings, decor, and wonderful 4 meter high ceilings give a special Parisian feel. PVA made booking easy & Fred who met us was very friendly and ensured we were settled into our apartment for our stay. This was our first visit to Paris and the location was very convenient. The apartment allowed us a very memorable experience of 'living' in Paris and we had the holiday of a lifetime. I have already recommended PVA to friends who have booked for 2013.

Raleigh, North Carolina, USA
Dates : April 5 -12, 2012. We were grandmother, mother, father, teenage daughter and all of us loved the apartment and the location. We were there at Easter and particularly enjoyed hearing the church bells of St. Sulpice throughout the weekend. Since we like to cook we appreciated the well equipped kitchen, the few basics waiting for us when we arrived, and the nearby markets.

Joy, Los Angeles, USA
Dates : February 09-15, 2012. The apartment was great, even better than the photo shows. The high ceilings, tall windows, wood floors, and modern furnishing really gave it a luxurious feel. It had all the amenities one would need. The managers were very professional and helpful, from initial emails to book the apartment to arranging the taxi to the airport on the day we left. The apartment is in a very central location for sightseeing and shopping.

Dates : January 10-16, 2012. The Chevalier apartment was terrific because the location was so convenient to everything we love about the left bank and yet it was like being in a neighborhood, away from the traffic and noise. For those who have never rented an apartment in Paris, have no fear in renting online from Alexandre. There is someone to meet you at the apartment to explain everything about the apartment.   There are always fresh flowers and goodies to great you upon your arrival. And, the book prepared by the rental service explains everything about the apartment, the neighborhood, restaurants, bistros, medical, etc. You really couldn't ask for more.

Marcela Garrett, Sydney, Australia
Dates : December 16-28, 2011. Paris Vacation Apartments provide outstanding service. From the time of booking right through to organising a taxi for our departure, we cannot fault them. Everything was professionally done, taken care of or thought of. The apartment was as beautifully presented and clean as the photos suggest. The attention to detail provided to us - from the luxuriously fluffy towels, laundry detergent, lap top computer (though we didn't need it) inclusion of internaitonal phone calls, croissants and bottle of wine on arrival, extensive information on restaurant recommendations and things to do nearby, organising a taxi for our departure and calling us to advise they were running 10 minutes late, made our stay in St Germain chic two bedroom and absolute pleasure, and made it excellent value for money. And they even arrived with a box of chocolates and bottle of champagne for Christmas. All this, after I had mistakenly informed them we were arriving a day before our actual departure. This huge inconvenience to them, was not dwelt on at all and handled professionally. I would certainly stay with them again, and highly recommend them. They really are unique.

Michael & Paulette Singer New York, USA
Dates: Oct, 2010 on Ile St Louis, and Oct 2011 at St Germain Chic two bedroom. Both apartments were spacious, spotlessly clean and welcoming in every way... though the sofas at Isle St Louis were charming... not comfortable for stretching out and relaxing. Both apartments are will equipped for cooking, have lots of fluffy towels and cozy robes. Each has a special attraction. When you open your outer door on Isle St Louis you are looking at the River and have a beautiful walk home over the bridge. St Germain Chic is 2 blocks from the Luxembourg Gardens, close to the outdoor market and wonderful shops on Raspail. Everyone connected with Paris Vacation Apartments is helpful and attentive. Go and enjoy!

Dates: July 22-29, 2011. This apartment was everything described and more. We travelled with our two teenage daughters, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The apartment was well-equipped and in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to shops, metro, restaurants, the Luxembourg gardens and even the Right Bank. Dealing with PVA was a pleasure from our first inquiry through arrival and check-out. We hope to return soon and will not hesitate to rent from PVA again.

M Woodall, Perth Australia
Dates: April 13-18, 2011. I stayed with a friend at the Chic St Germain 2 bedroom apartment, after receiving a recommendation from a friend who had previously used parisvacation apartments.  It was an extremely positive experience from start to finish.  The flat was exactly as pictured - beautifully appointed, spacious, luxurious and absolutely spotless, with all mod cons!  The free internet access and phone calls to Australia was much appreciated and all the staff were very prompt in responding to any enquiries, right from the outset, and a pleasure to deal with!  I would highly recommend PVA to anyone!!

Dates: May 12 – 19, 2011. I have rented from PVA 5 times and each time was a wonderful experience.  The apartments are all in extremely good locations.  The bathrooms and kitchens are large and modern.  The apartments are lovely, and each time I stay in one of their apartments I truly feel like I am living in Paris, and experiencing the neighbourhood.  I would never stay in a hotel again when I can have a large apartment as nice as theirs to enjoy.  I can’t wait to rent the next one. The rue Honore Chevalier is a beautiful, spacious apartment, just off Place Saint-Sulpice, close to restaurants, and shops, metros, and markets, especially farmer’s markets, Blvd. Saint German, and the Luxembourg Gardens.  The apartment has floor to ceiling windows in the living room and bedrooms, a lovely living room and a large dining room.  It could not have been more perfect in all respects. The staff are very welcoming, and very helpful.  They are available to us 24 hours a day for any questions or issues.

J Martyniuk, Toronto
Dates:  January 2011. Having rented apartments several times in the past few years from various agencies, for the first time in January 2011, we rented an apartment (Saint-Germain Chic) from Paris Vacation Apartments (PVA). In one word, wonderful.  More than expected. It was such a pleasure dealing with PVA.  Booking the apartment was so very easy; a few simple emails confirmed availability, executed the contract and provided payment. The staff was professional, warm and friendly.  We were met at the apartment and offered amazing croissants (from a local patisserie), and received a very helpful briefing about the neighbourhood and the apartment.  PVA emailed information about the neighbourhood in advance of our arrival and a manual left in the apartment provided even more information.  The photos of the apartment posted on the PVA website depicted the apartment very exactly. There were no surprises except that the interior design details of the apartment were more attractive than photos could illustrate.  The amenities in our apartment were superior.  The apartment was very well equipped and we had no want for any appliance, small or major, kitchen gadget or household supplies. I’ve already planned my next trip to Paris.  Without hesitation, I booked another PVA apartment simply because I was so pleased with the qualify of their apartments and the ease of booking them.  PVA is my agent of choice for vacation apartment rentals while I visit my favourite European city.

Sandra Sydney Australia
Dates:  January 07-14, 2011. We were fortunate to stay at the recently completed apartment - Honoré Chevalier in January 2011. It was ideal for our family of 4 as our travelling companions, a family of 5 secured the adjacent apartment which made it very convenient with plenty of space and privacy for each as required.  The apartment was very well suited to our needs, well appointed with a great guide to our location in the 6th arrondissement and the Paris Vacation services.  We were met punctually by a representative from PVA on arrival even though we were earlier than originally stated and everything was comprehensively explained.  The apartment was brand new and extremely comfortable with a great deal of thought and care taken in its design and furnishings. Our teenage children really appreciated their own space and we all relaxed into Parisian apartment life.  We explored the local area exhaustively and thought we were very well situated though it had not been our 1st choice of location. We experienced only 2 minor problems while there and both were managed swiftly and helpfully by PVA.  We have already recommended it to friends and will stay with PVA again as we found the whole experience to be better in comfort and value than 2 small hotel rooms for a similar price.

Jaimi and Paul Wolotsky in Laguna Niguel,California

Dates: April 06-13, 2011. The apartment was perfect from the moment we entered it! We are a family of four and everyone had more than enough room to do what ever they needed to.
It was very bright and clean.  The kitchen was well stocked. The bathroom was a good size, and the water closet perfect for what it is. The beds were comfortable and the bedroom had ample room to unpack your clothes.  The location was wonderful! It was close to a few metros, bakery, restaurants, a beautiful park, and GREAT shopping!
It was a very safe neighborhood and I let my kids (teenagers) wonder through the streets knowing that they would be alright.  And, for me that is very important!
Clara was sweet and understanding. She met us at the Apartment when we arrived and showed us how everything works.  The only draw back was that I don't have a good memory and I had a hard time figuring out the washing machine and dryer.  The instructions were only in French so that was the only difficulty I had. It would have made it easier if there were step by step instructions in English.
The maps and recommendations from Paris Vacations were well appreciated and we went to a few of the suggested restaurants, which were very good!
I would highly recommend this apartment, as well as, Paris Vacations to everyone! And, I hope one day when I get back to Paris, the French countryside or England, I will again stay at a Paris Vacation apartment.  I believe it is the BEST way to travel, especially with family and/or friends.  You become part of the city, not just a visitor within the city!

Dates: June 13-29, 2010. This is the second apartment that my family and I have rented from PVA team. This apartment like the prior one was excellent. It was like a  home away from home. It had everything from dishes and towels to umbrellas and shopping cart. It is very spacious and well thought out unit. I give a lot of credit to the PVA team.They are professional, courteous, and respectful of one's expectation. I would love to go back.
