Perfect Parisian Experience!
by Laura Werner
I just returned from a fabulous week in Paris with my teenage daughter. We stayed in apartment Saumur on Rue Cler in the 7th arrondissement. It was amazingly perfect in every way. The greeter was waiting for us when we arrived (even though our flight was 5 hours late!) to explain everything about the apartment and answer our questions. There was a balcony that allowed views of Rue Cler all the way up and down. It was perfectly clean and there were even bottles of wine, milk, orange juice, salt, etc. The dishwasher and clothes washer were easy to use and convenient to have. The inviting sights and sounds of Rue Cler added to the allure and magic of Paris and the central location of apartment Saumur. We love the 5 star service and luxury accommodation that Paris Perfect offers! We'll be back! Merci!

The apartment is on Rue Cler you have lots of great amenities at your door step. The apartment was very clean. The apartment is equipped with all and extra supplies which was very helpful after traveling for 10 hours. The bed was a harder mattress then I prefer, but after being out all day at museums and walking 10 miles I was pretty tired so I sleep ok. I did have a bit of problems running the AC, but the company sent someone out in 2 days to fix. The building is cute and classic Parisienne building with elevator.

Very comfortable, and location great if you like active street scene of markets and cafes. We do. Area is like a small town in the center of Paris. Dishwasher and washing machine in apartment. If you're big, elevator is snug, and I couldn't bend over in shower. All in all we loved it.

Great place! It was well organized and designed -- including some nice closet space. Absolutely loved the doors/windows, balcony and view. It was great to enjoy Paris while being at "home."

Beautiful little apartment in the heart of Paris.

I had a wonderful time at the apartment and would love to come back in the future! The location, the balcony and the communication with the agency were excellent 🙂

Nice place to stay. Short walk to the Eiffel Tower. Everything else like shops are near and in walking distance.

We have visited Paris in the Fall for the last 5 years and have always stayed in the Rue Cler area. This is the first apartment we have rented from Paris Perfect and we must say, it was "perfect". The apartment was exactly as shown on the website and your greeter reviewed all the necessary items with us upon our arrival. The apartment was fully equipped and it was wonderful to be able to step out of the building and right onto Rue Cler. The location was very convenient for shopping and eating out as well as catching the buses or metro.

Wonderful stay at the Saumur on Rue Cler. It was an exciting and unique experience having visited Paris a few times before. The experience in a Paris Perfect apartment was unforgettable, unique, and memorable. Highly recommend this Paris experience.

I love the neighborhood, my second stay here. Every time I visit Paris I will return to Saumur my home! Paris perfect makes my trip 'home' seamless, from pickups to and from the Cdg, to the greeter and the apartment itself. I was last there in 2017 and upon return in 2019 it's like a Paris time capsule! It's like I never left! Thanks for a wonderful experience every time Paris Perfect!

Great apartment design - very functional and thoughtful and had everything we needed. The nespresso machine was genius! And it was a nice touch to have milk and OJ in the fridge (even though we don't drink it).
Also the apartment was well stocked with paper goods (tissues, etc.) and we were happy that you provided soap and shampoo, and a safe for our valuables.
Really everything was thought through and executed very well. We are very pleased with our stay and hope to return soon.
This is my 2nd stay with Paris Perfect.
by Karen S
My second stay in the Saumur apartment (and my sixth with Paris Perfect, which hopefully says it all!)
A dinky studio which manages to combine all necessary facilities (including a dishwasher and washing machine) with the feeling of spaciousness. The balcony was an added bonus. Very convenient for many bus routes and excellent shopping facilities nearby.
I hope to be back!

It was always a dream of mine to rent a place in Paris to live like a local and this experience was that dream come true! The apartment was excellently maintained and clean and the location was magical. The large balcony was my favorite feature as I loved sitting out there every morning with coffee and a book and evening with champagne and charcuterie enjoying the views of the rooftops and the sounds of the people below. Everything one could need or want was located on these 3 enchanting blocks. The people of the management company, Paris Perfect, were very helpful and readily available to answer any questions. They have laid out clear instructions to the apartment operations as well as the rules. Please note that, while the other Paris Perfect tenants to the left of the apartment observe the quiet courtesy rules, the tenants to the right of the apartment, who are not associated, do not extend the courtesy so if someone is a light sleeper you may want to keep this note in mind. Otherwise, it was a wonderful place to stay and I would most definitely stay there again. Thank you, Paris Perfect!

Extremely well decorated, stylish studio apartment. Apartment's location is unparalleled with reference to transportation (Bus No. 69 and Metro - Ecole Militaire). It is located on Rue Cler which says it all and more.

Saumur was a delightful studio, ideal for one or two people, and was very quiet, despite being near a busy pedestrian street.
Although compact, it was very well designed to make good use of the space & had everything you needed, including a dishwasher & washing machine. The pull down bed was very easy to operate and there was even space for a small dining table.
The balcony looked extremely inviting; just a shame the weather didn't co-operate!
There are excellent bus routes nearby & the shopping facilities on Rue Cler & nearby Rue St Dominique are second to none.
This was my fifth stay with Paris Perfect. Please can I come again?!

This is a beautiful apartment in an ideal location. Very convenient for a wide range of buses & excellent food shops & restaurants nearby especially in Rue St Dominique + Rue Cler. The studio has been very imaginatively designed + does not feel crowded but still has everything needed for one's stay.
This was my fifth say with Paris Perfect. Please can I come again?!

Fantastic apartment!!! Location, location, location!!! Superbly located on the world famous Rue Cler. Everything you could ever need is readily available at your door step. Wonderful and welcoming Cafe's, Wine Specialty Stores, Bakery, Butcher Shop, Fromagerie, even small grocery stores for any additional items needed. The apartment had everything we needed for an amazing vacation. The responsiveness of Paris Perfect was outstanding! Highly Recommend!!! 🙂
The apartment was lovely and the location perfect! It was very close to public transportation and the Eiffel Tower. The outdoor terrace was a great added benefit. My 14-year-old daughter and I stayed here for 6 nights. She enjoyed buying flowers for the apartment - just a short walk away. This area truly had everything we needed - grocery, produce, gelato, crepes, pharmacy, restaurants, even a luggage store for when we realized we needed an extra bag to transport all our souvenirs!

We hit the jackpot on our first trip to Paris by staying at your small but well-appointed Saumur on Rue Cler. The apartment is comfortable for two, is beautifully appointed and has everything a visitor needs for a 10-day stay.Perfect!
We breakfasted in our room every day and prepared lunch for our sightseeing excursions. This is easy with the compact kitchen with the refrigerator and freezer, microwave, every kitchen tool imaginable and room for food preparation. The Nespresso machine saw heavy use as well.
The lovely dining table with city views outside the windows and reliable internet made breakfast and catching up with the world every day a pleasure. The balcony was another wonderful feature. Although the weather did not allow us to enjoy it for most of our stay.
We left the bed down during our entire visit as we were there to experience Paris and not the inside of our room (never turned on the TV). Late nights in the city meant directly to bed on arrival each night and out immediately after breakfast. The bathroom, while small, had a bigger than expected shower and wide sink with room for toiletries. The washer/dryer offered some mysteries (even with the extensive instructions) but this was solved with practice and was indispensable for a stay of this length.
The extensive documentation on virtually everything in the apartment, as well as the friendly greeter who provided orientation our first day, were other touches that made our stay smooth and trouble-free. The starter supplies of orange juice, wine, Nespresso cups and milk, as well as soaps, cleaners and paper goods, were well appreciated.
But as they say in real estate here in the States (and probably everywhere else) - location, location, location - it is here Saumur shines brightly. I suppose there are other great locations to stay in Paris but it is hard to believe there are any better.
Rue Cler has everything a visitor needs: from cafés (we ate at three (Cafés du Marche, Tribeca and La Terrasse around the corner on Rue Bosquet), fruit and flower stands, bakeries, pharmacies, small supermarkets (we are partial to Carrefour for its hours and selection of La Motte-Picquet) and a day and night time vibe that represents the best of Paris city life. An espresso or a glass of wine and a curbside table on Rue Cler is hard to beat for people watching or unwinding at the end of an evening.
The Eiffel Tower, Champs de Mars, the Seine and Napoleon's Tomb are an easy walk and just meandering in the neighborhood is a pleasure as well. The Ecole Militaire Metro station was ground zero for the start of our every day and it is right around the corner from Saumur. Line 8 connects directly to Invalides, Concorde, Madeleine, Opera and La Motte-Picquet transfer stations making it easy to get virtually anywhere in the city core at any hour.
Both Versailles and Chartres were easy day trips using the RER from Invalides and the TER from Montparnasse Bienvenue. Our Navigo cards were well used for sometimes as many as three round trips a day all over the city. And when we exited the Metro from Ecole Militaire at any hour, Carrefour was open for whatever we needed for the next day's activities - with only a short walk home with our groceries to our comfortable little flat.
Rick Steves recommended Paris Perfect in his 2017 Paris Guide as an alternative to VRBO (which we have used on other trips) and he was not wrong about the quality of the accommodations and services. While we are self-guided and self-sufficient travelers in the main and do not need some of the levels of service that you provide, the apartment, support services and maintenance (we had a small plumbing problem that was promptly dealt with) were excellent.
We would certainly book Saumur again if in Paris and would definitely consider Perfect apartments in London and Rome on future visits there. Since we never stay in a hotel if it can be avoided, it is likely we will be your customer again in the near future.
Please feel free to share our comments or use us as a referral. Thanks for helping make our first trip to Paris so special!

We have nothing but praise for the facilities. For the masses of useful information in the apartment (far better than any guidebook), for the greeter who explained everything to us, for the links with the taxi service and the WiFi hotspot.
Rue Cler is a foodie heaven and there is an abundance of choice both for eating in or out. I would add D'Chez Eux to the restaurant list (Ave Lowendal). We have eaten there on previous visits to Paris and the food and service are superb. Jeusselin Traiteur across the street always has a great selection of things to eat and the cheese shop just up the street is fabulous.
The only downside is that you almost need a PhD to work some of the appliances, which in Europe are infinitely more complicated than the North American variety! But the book does provide good guidance if you take the time to study it. The only suggestion I would make is that you have a standard package available in all apartments containing things that cannot be purchased in very small quantities that are needed for a short stay. There were useful leftovers like pepper and olive oil, but I think a small supply of salt, pepper, oil, tea bags and the like, should always be available.
We will certainly recommend Paris Perfect to our friends, and Rue Cler as well. The weather was dreadful most of the time (snow in March!). Make sure you fix that for our next visit!

I have never traveled outside the United States and was a little nervous being alone. With all that said I had a fabulous time. The minute I met Kevin at your office I felt at ease. My apartment was perfect. I was thrilled at the gift basket and the wine was wonderful! What a great start to my stay. I was able to meet Nicola due to a class canceling on me and she was lovely. I really appreciate you picking up my dinner at the amazing Cafe Constant since that class did not work out. The entire team was great and my itinerary was perfect! I know I had a very unique itinerary, but I had a blast getting through it. Thank you for a truly perfect stay!!

The absolute best thing about Saumur was the location. Rue Cler is a most delightful street and we really enjoyed being there, especially that although it's a pedestrian street cars were allowed for drop-off and pick-up so we didn't have to walk far with our luggage.
The flat itself was very nice, spotlessly clean and extremely well organized. We had absolutely everything we could need. The delightful touches were the wine, milk and juice which helped us through the morning after we arrived (not the wine, of course). Although we arrived quite late and had no greeter we managed nicely although a greeter would have told us the secrets of the book of instructions which we didn't find for two days until after contacting your office.
by Rick and Stephanie Sager
The Saumur was a perfect little apartment right on the Rue Cler. It was exactly how I imagined an apartment in Paris would look. It has an amazing balcony to enjoy while sipping coffee or wine, and everything you need for an extended stay in Paris. It is very close to the Eiffel Tower and Metro stops, so getting around Paris was no trouble at all. Rue Cler has a multitude of restaurants, shops and patisseries right downstairs, so you don't have to worry about where to eat or how to purchase anything you need for your stay. We had a wonderful time exploring all that Paris has to offer, and it was great to know that our perfect little apartment was waiting for us each evening when we arrived home. I would definitely stay here again in the future.
by Laurie Tam
We loved Saumur! Fantastic location--we loved being right on rue Cler. The balcony was wonderful and made the apartment feel very spacious. We also appreciated the bigger fridge, the microwave/oven, the dishwasher, and especially the washer/dryer combo. We love the Nespresso machine as well! Only complaint is that the neighbors were very loud.
We enjoyed all of our interactions with the Paris Perfect team, who were all really friendly and kind. We also cannot recommend Victor Cabs more highly, who we booked through Paris Perfect. They were so amazing and helpful!

My Niece and I stayed in the Saumur Apartment for a week. It was just perfect for us. Beautifully appointed, clean, well stocked. Everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Each morning we picked up Croissants from a local bakery and ate breakfast on the Patio overlooking the rooftops of Paris. Listening to the sounds of people along Rue Cler in the evening as we watched the sun set at 9:30 was beautiful. We realized we could see the Eiffel Towers reflection in the window across the way and watched it as it sparkled. Each morning the sun streamed in and awoke us for another blissful day in paradise. This is the perfect spot for a couple or two people to enjoy being in the middle of a local street living like a Parisian. We look forward to our next visit. The Paris Perfect staff took great care of us. Thank you for a great trip.

Beautiful little apartment on Rue Cler. Very well-equipped, full of light, pretty, and superb location. Also, Paris Perfect staff, especially our greeter, were professional and helpful, and Victor's Cab Service to/from airport was fantastic.
by Marla Moran
My husband and I stayed at the Saumur for our honeymoon. It really was the perfect place and great start of our life together. It is in an ideal location for site seeing with amazing restaurants and very close to the metro. We had chocolate croissants from a local patissierie every morning on our balcony, which is exactly how we wanted to start our day. Paris Perfect staff were great and the local information on restaurants and shopping was invaluable and added to our experience of living like a local.
by Jessica Levy
Tiny but perfectly equipped, Saumur met all of our needs for a Paris apartment. We know the 7th well and have good friends there, and the rue Cler location was perfect for seeing them - and yet not too noisy at all in the bright and sunny 6th floor garret. As always, Paris Perfect provides a super bed, great linens, comfortable pillows and blankets, and all we needed to get started in the apartment. Breakfast and aperitifs on the roof deck were a treat, L'Eclair next door was perfect for a nightcap. Don't stay here if you are claustrophobic, very tall, or don't like being VERY close to your traveling companion - but it was absolutely perfect for us and we'd love to stay here again.
by A Brannon
The Saumur apartment was very enjoyable. A little small but that's my understanding of many apartments in Paris and Europe in general. The location could not have been better so close to the metro and Eiffel Tower. I completely fell in love with Paris and we will be back, just not soon enough! Paris Perfect was very good to work with and very helpful. I would not hesitate to book with you again.

My daughter and I stayed in Saumur for a week and it was absolutely perfect. The building was very quiet and the apartment was exactly as described and pictured. It was very roomy(for 2), comfortable and beautifully furnished.The Murphy bed was easy to operate, very firm but comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, perfect set-up. The balcony would be wonderful in warmer weather. I liked being on the top floor and not hearing people walk above me. We loved the location right on Rue Cler. We always stay in the 7th and love shopping there and enjoy all the charming cafes in the neighborhood. The neighborhood definitely has the best bakeries in all of Paris. Our greeter Kevin was very friendly and professional and explained everything clearly.We can't wait to return to Saumur.

The apartment was perfect and provided everything we could have needed for our stay. It was cozy and comfortable. I was designed beautifully and really makes use of the space. Paris Perfect really does think of everything! Next time I am in Paris I will be sure to stay in one of their apartments.

I tell everyone who asks about my trip to use Paris Perfect when planning a vacation to Paris. Your service was phenomenal as was the apartment. I spent a spectacular week in the Saumur this past July. The location on rue Cler puts one in the midst of the best eating options possible, whether take home delicacies, casual café dining or high end restaurants all of which I sampled! Almost everything Paris has to offer no matter your interests is close by. The museums, the Eiffel Tower, the parks, the shopping are all within walking distance. For those things farther afield like Pere Lachaisse or Montmartre, there are nearby buses and the Metro. And every evening you can return to soak in the last rays of sunlight while sipping a glass of wine on the balcony. I cannot wait to return!â€
by CHRISTINE HRIB-KARPINSKI
Let me just say, EVERY aspect of this vacation â€” from pre-stay communications, during the stay, and post-stay â€” lived up to the Paris Perfect name!
The arrival packet: Wow! Great information! I love how they split up the packets into twoâ€”one for the entire city and another just for the neighborhood. We also appreciated the personal comments on many of the restaurant recommendations; this helped us sift through the many choices in the area and, might I say, they were all great recommendations!
The apartment: This place was amazing. This was the best use of space I have ever seen. I loved that they had American-style bottom and top sheets (I get hot when I sleep and like to just use the top sheetâ€“so many European accommodations do not use top sheets). Also, we had THE largest bath towels ever! Even some of the finest hotels have smaller, skimpy towels.
And Madelyn provided face cloths too! OMG! You NEVER find them in Europe. I usually pack my own when traveling to Europe.
Excursions and reservations: The process for making all the reservations were phenomenal.
The Paris Perfect Team: Fantastic and attentive! Madelyn's team is the epitome of her brand. They really want to make everything perfect. Whatever Madelyn is doing to keep them happy and loving their jobs, keep it up. Their responses and response times were fantastic. So much of a company can be judged by the people. They represent Paris Perfect in such a positive light.
Thanks to all for such a memorable trip; everything was fantastic! We look forward to coming back. P.S. I have already recommended Madelyn to a bunch of our friends.

The SAUMUR, a wonderful apartment with the immediate satisfaction of being part of the Parisian lifestyle. The location makes this possible; right on the Rue Cler, fresh fruits, fresh squeezed orange juice (my favorite), fresh baked quiche for breakfast, does it get any better than this?
The apartment is just what is advertised, small, but with all the conveniences one needs. All you need is a place to eat breakfast and sleep, so a larger apartment is not necessary. You spend your day exploring, so the SAUMUR is an ideal place to base your excursions. A short walk to the 69 bus stop, a short walk to the Eiffel Tower, a short walk to many great restaurants, Paris Perfect!
Actually, we tried to rent a larger apartment from Paris Perfect, but were a little too late. But in retrospect, this apartment's location is more important than space. We would stay here again.
by T Riordan
The apartment is in an excellent location on Rue Cler which is a pedestrian only cobblestone street with many restaurants, coffee shops, wine shop, fruit and vegetable shops, patisseries, cheese shops. It is close to the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine and many other museums and attractions of Paris.

This is a great studio apartment in the 7th perfect for one or two people. Large balcony to sit out on, enjoy a glass of wine and look out over the famous Rue Cler market street. The location is great, minutes from the Eiffel Tower with restaurants, specialty shops and open markets right outside the door. This is a great alternative to a hotel room!

Delightful stay in Paris! The Saumur is a nicely appointed apartment located on a street filled with the best daily markets! Everything you need is right at your door - fresh fruits & vegetables, wine merchants, oysters and meats, pastry shop, fine Belgian Chocolates. Rue Cler has it all. The apartment is ideally located near the Metro making it easy to get around the city. It's also close to the Eiffel Tower, reachable by walk in about 10 minutes, as well as other landmarks. Inside the apartment you'll find a cozy space that makes good use of the layout. For 1-2 persons, the Saumur is an ideal choice for your stay in Paris.

As alwarys - Be in Paris; don't DO Paris. Saumur on Rue Cler is a lovely apartment in a lively location for our sixth visit to Paris & second at Paris Perfect - the difference is noticeable. Every convenience, detail, and aesthetic makes Saumur feel like a home. The appliances are all brand new! The building is safe, elevator works well, heating and lighting is great and the storage is excellent considering the small footprint. The view of Paris rooftops (7th and Invalides) is exquisite and the doors shut out most of the street noise. We did laundry a few times - very good machine. We brought up dinner three times. The block has multiple veggie, wine, bread, chocolate and prepared food, emporter (to take away). Enjoy a romantic dinner in the apartment.
Challenges: the mattress while top quality is very firm. Also, the bar directly downstairs is busy until 2:00am and deliveries for shops arrive at 6:30am. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. It's not extreme, but noticible street noise.
