Tucked away on a cobblestone street, the Carignan is a lovely two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment set right in the heart of the 15th arrondissement. This neighborhood is just off the tourist radar and is very popular with Parisians, which means you'll enjoy discovering a truly local Paris during your stay. There's plenty of room to relax and feel at home in the spacious living room, two bedrooms and a nicely appointed kitchen.
The Carignan is set in a modern apartment complex not too far from the Rue du Commerce, which is our favorite hidden shopping street in Paris. Here you'll find a marvelous selection of fashion boutiques, bakeries, specialty shops and tons of cafés and restaurants to choose from during your stay in Paris. Stroll to open-air markets or the beautiful Champ de Mars gardens to visit the Eiffel Tower. The apartment is close to the metro and bus lines, so you can easily reach all the top spots in central Paris. Discover the charms of the Parisian lifestyle that locals love during your stay at the Carignan!

My long stay at Carignan was everything I'd hoped it would be, affording me and occasional family and friends a wonderful experience of Parisian life. The apartment could not have been more perfect, just the right size for me, sparklingly clean, beautifully appointed, blessedly quiet at night and in a residential area relatively far from the crush of tourists found elsewhere, even though it's a mere 10 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower (which by the way is part of the view from the apartment!). I immediately felt at home here thanks to the support Paris Perfect provided, the ease of the apartment itself, and convenience of the neighborhood, full of shops and restaurants The apartment's location inspires walking (the best way to see the city!) and is also close to the 8, 6 and 10 lines. The only hiccup I found was a bit of construction noise - but this was only during the day and I note that this is part of the soundscape everywhere now, as the city grows, retrofits and renovates to accommodate its innumerable admirers. I hope to be back, and soon. Thank you, Paris Perfect for helping make a dream come true!

Paris Perfect is near "perfect." For me it is the items that seem simple to have but make one's stay so enjoyable. The Carignan apartment is very well appointed with several towels, wash cloths (not a typical European feature), hand, dish and washing machine soaps, milk, tea, biscuits, and wine. Any questions we had about wifi, keys, air conditioning were handled quickly. The "greeter" was friendly and helped us get settled after a long trip. All kitchen items such as dishes, cutting boards, silverware, tea and coffee cups were all there. The furniture is beautiful with a touch of "antiques" in the apartment and very nicely decorated. The neighborhood was very quiet. We stayed in two other apartments, one in Paris and one in Perpignan, and hands down I would always choose Paris Perfect over them. A "shout out" to Victor Cab service getting us from the airport to the apartment. Nice job by his folks as well. Way to go, Paris Perfect! It was a great way to start our vacation!

Very comfortable. Clean. Well stocked with basics. A nice welcome by staff, including appliance training and some much appreciated snacks after travelling all night. A family with at least one toddler and baby live upstairs, so was a bit noisy, but felt family-oriented. Didn't really bother us. No street noise at all. I've already recommended Paris Perfect to several friends. Thank you for helping us celebrate 40 yrs of marriage in class and comfort!

My wife, our 12-year-old grandson and I enjoyed our week at the Carignan. The apartment was exactly as represented, and the Paris Perfect representative who met us on arrival explained everything fully. We particularly appreciated the fact that the apartment is very close to the Commerce Metro station and two small groceries, and that an Eric Kayser bakery is just around the corner on the Rue de Commerce.

My wife, our 12-year-old grandson, and I enjoyed our week-long stay in the Carignan apartment. The flat, which is on a quiet street in a bustling residential neighborhood, is spacious, comfortable and fully equipped. Dossas, the company representative who greeted us on our arrival, provided a thorough briefing and left us with a book of useful information. We were particularly glad to find that the apartment was only a couple of hundred yards from a Metro stop (Commerce) and two small grocery stores (one of which offered a machine that produced freshly squeezed orange juice), and was just around the corner from an Eric Kayser bakery on the Rue de Commerce, which also is home to several banks, a pharmacie, a produce market, and other shops.

Loved the Place. So perfect and quiet. The decor reflected Paris back to you. And the city bike share program was just across the quiet street. Patisseries near and groceries boulangarie.

We had a wonderful experience with Paris Perfect. Our contact for Carignan, Natalie, was perfect: communications were timely, clear, fully accommodating, and helpful. When we arrived, exhausted and sleepy after a rough transatlantic flight, the apartment and Natalie could not have been more welcoming. The apartment was A+, located in a very quiet area while at the same time was conveniently close to everything we might need, from fresh croissants and groceries to suddenly required hosiery. We had everything we needed to feel as if we were permanent, long-time residents. Our two bedrooms even had views of the Eiffel Tower which at night was marvelous. I will absolutely be looking to Paris Perfect for future stays and only wish you had representation in our next planned stop, Madrid! Thank you Natalie, for a memorable trip.

We were so lucky to find this apartment! We booked it approximately one month before our arrival and took advantage of a discounted rate - amazing! I was able to visit with a lovely person that spent time answering questions and helping me with our decision since this was our first time to Paris. The apartment was perfect for 3 people and the neighborhood was just as we had imagined! We wanted a Parisian neighborhood experience and we got it! The other perfect part of the location was the metro was less than a 5 min walk. Everyone associated with Paris Perfect carried out great customer service. We could also see at night the Eiffel Tower outside our bedroom window. We will use this company again with any more travels to Paris.

We loved our apartment! It was warm and cozy and had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped, the beds were very comfortable, it was impeccably clean and (other than a bit of noise from the upstairs neighbor) quiet. Thomas was a fantastic host, explaining everything we needed to know and even brought us umbrellas when we did not have any at the apartment. We loved the neighborhood for it's authentic, residential feel and lots of great shops and restaurants. Commerce really is a great shopping street! I would absolutely recommend Paris Perfect and would book again next time I visit one of your locations. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The Carignan apartment was in a fantastic location and was exactly as pictured on the website. Victoria was waiting for us when the taxi pulled up to the complex and she provided a very detailed account of the apartment. She also prepared a lovely collection of welcome gifts including wine and delicious chocolates for us to enjoy. It was clear that she put a lot of thought and attention into making our stay in Paris as perfect as possible! The apartment has everything needed to enjoy Paris - guidebooks, maps, walking tours. The location just down the road from the Commerce metro station couldn't have been any more convenient. The walk to the Eiffel Tower was perfect for an evening stroll. We very much enjoyed seeing the tower "sparkle" from the apartment windows at night. Our children were very comfortable in the room with the twin beds, as were we in the master suite. The beautifully appointed apartment was quiet and kept cool during hot summer nights with the various fans. Our experience was ideal and we have no complaints about the apartment or the management staff - all were exceptional.

We had a really good experience in Paris thanks to ParisPerfect. Victoria was very kind at our arrival and very helpful when needed. We will definitely recommend ParisPerfect to everyone and book our next stay in Paris through ParisPerfect.

Thank you Victoria for looking after us! Waiting patiently in the street for our late arrival, taking your time to show us all the available amenities in the apartment and also your continued assistance during our stay.
We â€œknewâ€ the apartment straight away. It is exactly like the photos on the Paris Perfect website. It is very clean and spacious for our family of 2 adults and 2 children.
We love the convenient location to the metro, shops (especially Amorino and Eric Kaysen), Eiffel Tower, Franprix, etc.
Thank you for sharing your apartment.

Bonjour Victoria, Thank you for all your help during our holiday. You have made it memorable for all of us.
by Mehta & Family
This is indeed a well-appointed and comfortable apartment with a very convenient location. It's been our kidâ€™s first trip to Paris and the bonus has been to sleep with the twinkling lights of the Eiffel. Overall, it's been a memorable stay.
In terms of suggestions, only one would be to have a few umbrellas added - otherwise every other amenity was there; and a fan for the hot summer days.
Thanks again, Au Revoir Paris
P.s. and a big thanks to Victoria for the welcome and the offer to help anytime. She is a real gem!
by The Laner Family
Your apartment was perfect for our family of four. Thank you for making it so wonderful. WE love our stay in Paris and we felt like a local in your quaint neighborhood. It was great to sleep with the windows open and hear the birds chirping when we awoke! We were very comfortable here. Victoria â€“ our unofficial tour guide was so helpful with tips and directions on where to go on Bastille Day! She is very kind and thoughtful. We are now off to Amsterdam, staying in another apartment and hope our stay is as lovely. Thank you again!
by The Trabert Family
Thank you for sharing your lovely apartment! It has been the perfect place to call home during our visit to Paris.
Victoria, thank you for welcoming us your smile and calm confidence were welcome sights for weary travelers.
We brought our daughter here on graduation present and visited many of the museums and monuments that must be seen by first-time visitors. At the end of each long day, we returned to this quiet and comforting home to rest up for our next adventure.
We have already recommended this lovely haven to our friends.
The convenience of the Franprix, Monoprix, shops and metro made this an especially fine location, as did the proximity to the Eiffel Tower.
Falling asleep with the view of the Eiffel Tower will always be a special memory!
by The Alexanders
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment and especially the hospitality of our greeter Victoria, who started our return to Paris after 25 years with a warm welcome and was available to us for guidance throughout the week. Thanks for a memorable anniversary!
by Jane K
We loved the area - being so close to Rue de Commerce was perfect. Shopping in the small food shops was ideal. We did morning walk/runs near the Eiffel Tower in the Champ de Mars. The Sunday open markets and the Blvd Grenelle was delightful.
We enjoyed the brasserie on the corner, Café du Commerce, but our favorite was Afaria â€“ first on the recommended list. The wine shop across the street was not only convenient but the proprietor was friendly and helpful.

We spent the New Year week holidays in Paris and loved having a Paris Perfect apartment as our "home" base. So much cozier and more intimate than a hotel. The area around Carignan had two metros within a very short walking distance and a lovely street of shops for food, wine and general needs. We had breakfast at home everyday and we also made dinner twice during our stay - the kitchen is fully equipped and also contains basic cooking ingredients (oil, salt, spices, etc.). We also received a welcome basket with some basic food stuffs. The apartment was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. This was our first trip to Paris and we will be back next year and look forward to renting Carignan again!

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful apartment â€“ very spacious, well equipped and close to metro. Our greeter was there to greet us when we arrived late and made our first welcome to Paris so enjoyable. We enjoyed dinner around the corner at Café Commerce and also at Café Constant. However the best restaurant was in the 5th arrondissement â€“ Le Coupe-Chou â€“ fabulous food and the atmosphere is truly old Paris â€“ 9 & 11 rue de Lanneau, Tel:01 46 33 68 69.
Our Paris stay was wonderful and the apartment made us feel a part of the French culture.

Thank you for such hospitality! Greeting us at the gate & a welcome basket. This apartment is very charming and located close to shops, cafes & the metro. The view of the Eiffel tower tops it off. Would suggest an oven (mini not so great when cooking/baking). Also lights for light switches in bedrooms. Otherwise, wonderful place. Merci!

Thank you for such a lovely apartment! We had such a great time here. The apartment is very comfortable and calm. Also I would like to thank you for all the amenities you included for us...from toilet paper down to the creme de cassis! I have been coming to Paris yearly and this is my 10th apartment that I have rented. I would certainly return to this lovely apartment...it is well located near the metro Commerce and all the shopping on rue du Commerce. If I had only one or two suggestions, it would be to install better lighting in the bedrooms and a DVD player that works with US DVDs. It would have been nice after a long busy day to come back and pop in a movie. Thank you again for everything. P.S. Our greeter was a delight to work with. So nice having someone who really cares about your stay. I look forward to seeing her again!
