Dream Home - The City of Lights

This week's dream home, was a request from Shannon, who wanted an affordable Paris vacation rental. Now, I understand Shannon has a family of three... but I couldn't help but share this one bedroom Paris apartment rental located in the 7th arrondissement on the Left Bank of the river Seine.

I found the rental located on the site Paris Perfect - and it's definitely not the only gorgeous rental this site has on offer!

The Montrachet apartement is 450-square-feet, of perfect Paris living with incredible views of the Eiffel Tower from the balcony, kitchen, living room AND bedroom! So without further ado, let's check it out, starting with the Living Room...

It's small and cozy and very french, but I could stand to lose the Eiffel Tower lamp. I mean, just look out the window...

Who needs a TV when you have that view out the living room doors? Breakfast on the balcony? Yes please! I mean, the kitchen isn't a bad option either...

It may not be large, but it's modern and has the option of the dining table! What could be better than running out to a nearby market to pick up some fresh produce and make your own breakfast, lunch and/or dinner? Especially if you can dine and have this spectacular view...

The bedroom is perfection as well...

Again... thinking the TV isn't exactly necessary...

If I was waking up to that view every morning, I don't think there is a chance that I would ever leave!

Now, what about the apartment itself. What else does it offer besides stunning views? Well, aside from the bedroom, the couch in the living room converts into a double bed. Technically you could slipt the €2065 - €2765 cost in half if you didn't mind sharing close quarters with some friends for a week. However, the website recommends that you ask about the amount of available hot water before you choose an apartment. The size of water heaters vary, and no one likes a cold shower!

As the views would indicate, the apartment is within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River. The Champs de Mars garden is located at the end of the street and the apartment itself is surrounded by cafes and shops, and open markets are nearby - perfect for those french dishes you'll create in the little apartment kitchen!

For more information on the Montrachet apartment in particular check out here, and for more apartments visit Paris Perfect directly!

So what do we think, did I find a winner? I'm ready to back my bags and head to Paris for a week even if it does put a bit of a dent in my wallet.

Keep those requests coming! Where is your dream home or dream vacation rental located? Is there something in particular you're looking for? Let me know and I'll hunt it out!


  1. THANKS KERRY!!!!!!!!! This apartment WAS tempting! We opted for this modest charmer:
