Paris Apartment – Girls’ Guide to Paris

Dear Diva Readers,

top: 5px; float: left; color: white; background: #781300; border: 1px solid darkkhaki; font-size: 60px; line-height: 50px; padding-top: 1px; padding-right: 5px; font-family: times;”>We all know there’s no place like home, but for someone like me who travels a lot, even your home away from home should feel special. I love staying in vacation apartments when traveling, however with many of the big-name websites, you often don’t know what you’re really getting. That’s why I’m so excited to share a new Parisian service with you which is offered by my friend Doni Belau of toparis.com” target=”_blank”>Girls’ Guide to Paris and her partner Jennifer Sigler. They are now offering exclusive Paris Apartment Rentals which are handpicked by them.

Doni noticed an influx of AirBnB rentals and many other sites that rent apartments to travelers throughout Paris, but decided it was time for a trusted group of Paris experts to offer something a bit more. What you don’t get with the large Internet companies is personal service. So Doni and Jennifer handpicked all 25 of the apartments they represent, and work with trusted and experienced apartment managers which means they can ensure a very high-level of quality, something that the big guys simply can’t do. Throw in a few Girls’ Guide to Paris extras, and you’ve got yourself some serious added value!

When you rent from Girls’ Guide to Paris, you’ll not only be getting a gorgeous, professionally cleaned place to stay – you’ll also receive a free Girls’ Guide to Paris GO-Card (worth $75) with every rental which gives you a set of gg2p walking tours plus a multitude of special deals and perks at over 250+ partners around France including Galeries Lafayette, Auto Europe and Cook’n with Class just to name a few. The card also gives you special deals with respected tour companies, trendy restaurants, bars, car rentals, spas and Francophile websites so you can continue saving after you arrive back home.

You’ll also get a private guided tour in the area where you’ve chosen to stay, which can be extremely helpful when trying to navigate a new neighborhood. And in the spirit of hospitality, the girls will even include a free glass of wine at a well-known wine bar in Paris and 10% off a cooking class plus a free tote-bag at Cook’n with Class. Sounds like a Diva’s ideal time!

An apartment gives you more space, allows you to feel ‘Parisian’ for the week plus it’s far less expensive than a hotel. Be aware that choosing the right company is critical. When you rent directly from an owner via the popular rental sites, their idea of cleanliness and service may not be up to the standard one expects.

GG2P rentals offers apartments in all of the major central areas of Paris including many in the most coveted neighborhoods like the Palais Royal, the Louvre, St. Germain, Ile St. Louis and the Marais. Prices range from $60 per person per night to $125. Many of the apartments have balconies, views and/or terraces and all are spacious. Doni tells me the largest property GG2P offers is an actual home in Paris with two floors and four bedrooms and two separate terraces. Wouldn’t that be fun for a group of girlfriends?! All apartments offer free phone calls to the US as well as free wifi—important for staying connected with friends and family at home. Concierge service is available on request for an extra fee. Apartments are available to rent for 5 days to 5 months or more.

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>All across Paris, s tore windows and restaurants are celebrating. “C’est La Rentree!” announces “It’s the Return” from vacation!

In Paris the entire city goes away for their summer “holiday” in August. As my husband works for a French company, we too take August for a month away. This year my darling niece visited us for her Grand Tour and August was awhirl with travel – trips to Paris, Prague and London book-ended nearly a month away in Italy visiting Tuscany, Florence, Cinque Terre, Venice and Rome. You’ll be reading about our summer holidays over the next month as I catch up on my blogging, but today the French sentiment of “La Rentree” is my word-du-jour as I return to life post-vacation!

As I am always a fan of combining work with pleasure, I wanted to start this Fall Antiques Diva Season off with a special giveaway in conjunction with the fabulous Claudia Strasser, author of the beautiful Paris Apartment blog.
