Our family of four was thrilled with the Balthazar apartment and its fantastic location, beautiful furnishings and great functionality. It was even better than I had imagined, despite the detailed pictures on your website. We adored the neighborhood with all the surrounding shops and bistros and felt like true Parisians in our coming and going. I will certainly recommend this lovely apartment to friends and we hope to return to Paris again soon. It was a real delight.

Meredith Knox, Barineau Houston, Texas

We had a fabulous time in our Paris apartment. The apartment was beautiful and spotless. The location was sensational. There were plenty of boutiques, cafes and bistros nearby. We had such a wonderful time.

We had a great time in Paris, the Balthazar apartment was beautiful and stylish (thanks for the recommendation)! During our stay, everything went extremely smoothly....Marc, the property manager, was responsive and helpful. We have recommended Paris Luxe to others already!

Hello Rita,
Balthazar was everything you promised.  Thank you for steering us in this direction. We had a marvelous time and the location and apartment amenities were perfect. I just received a call from Marc.  He was unable to meet us before our transfer pick up at noon.  We left the apartment in perfect condition including all trash out and clean dishes.  It is ready for housekeeping. Again, that you for your assistance and for maintaining such a beautiful apartment.

Perfection! We had a great experience and the Paris apartment was exactly what we wanted! I could not have been happier! We already recommended the apartment to our friends. Thank you!

My wife Mimi and I stayed in Balthazar for 5 nights in November 2010.  We have stayed in a half dozen other apartments from other agencies and I must say that Balthazar and the service from Paris Luxe were the best by far and the arrival was easy.  Your info sheet had everything on it that we needed to get into the apartment. We called your "greeter" from the airport and she was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment.  She helped us with our luggage and got us installed in Balthazar.  Her English was of course impeccable as she explained the workings of the apartment.  The nicest touch was that she had brought us some fruit, bread, cheese, and water.  We were able to grab a bite to eat before we walked to Starbucks and then continued on to the Bon Marche food floor to get provisioned. Yes we like long walks! The apartment was recently renovated with first class fixtures.  It is in an excellent location in the Marais. The bedrooms are on the rear courtyard so they were very quiet at night, not that the street was by any means noisy.  It was extremely clean and everything was new and worked perfectly.  Balthazar has a large "American" kitchen as they say in Paris, or just "really nice" as we say in Canada.  All that was missing was one of those amusing combo oven/stove/dishwasher appliances that you sometimes find :). This was our first trip to Paris in the winter, and Balthazar contributed to our having a wonderful time as we always do in Paris. Regards,

Francis Dunlop, Toronto, Canada

Hello Rita, Our flight arrived in Paris at 6.20am on the Thursday after flying from Australia via Hong Kong. We were lucky to land since the airport had been closed on Wednesday due to the snow. When we arrived at Balthazar, we were greeted and presented with OJ, Croissants, fruit, and baguette, such a lovely start to our holiday. The apartment was everything you had stated on the email.  So much so we would like to buy the apartment if it were to be for sale.

Thank you to the team at Paris Luxe for all your help. Regards,

Rhonda Coombs, Melbourne, Australia

Hello Lindy, thank you for your follow-up e-mail.  We really do appreciate the attention to detail and recommendations the Paris luxe team offers for stays in Paris.  My husband and I enjoyed the Balthazar in the Marais -- really a beautiful and comfortable apartment.  We have never stayed in that part of town before so it was a new experience for us.  I was wondering what the status is with the Boyer apartment.  That looks like a lovely apartment and it's in a neighborhood that we might be interested in trying sometime.

Best Regards,

Maryanne Pfister, San Diego, CA

We loved the young chef's tour with Phillippe! The boys had fun, our lunch was superb and shopping at the market was an adventure. Balthazar has been great!

Dear Lindy and Rik,
One of your colleagues just called to welcome us home and ask about our stay.  So I thought I would email a note instead... We had an absolutely wonderful time in Paris and Balthazar made it especially special.  Perfect location,  beautiful interiors and thoughtful amenities.  Just wished I had more time there to fully appreciate the well equipped kitchen.  It was a cook’s dream.  Even our kids didn’t want to leave the apartment.  Rik’s advice and service was also top notch – efficient, responsive and right on the mark.  THANK YOU, Rik. Martine was there with all the details and made herself available if and when we needed.  We were well pampered.  Our family would definitely revisit Balthazar in the future, and we would certainly recommend your service to all our friends in need. Thank you for helping us build such wonderful memories on our first journey with kids to Paris.

All the Best,

Jinee Tao, Los Angeles, CA

Hi Lindy,
Regarding our trip to Paris in July. We stayed at Balthazar. It is a beautiful apartment and we enjoyed our accommodation. My wife and I have been to Paris several times and have always said it s a beautiful city.


Bruce Goddard, Moshan, Australia

Hi Rik, Lindy and Martine,

Finally a moment to email.
Our departure went smoothly on Friday, thank you.
Martine, I would like to thank you for promptly dealing with the cleaning of the apartment during our stay.
  Rik thanks for being available 24/7 for all bookings and advice. It was fantastic! Lindy many thanks for acting promptly when i emailed.  It makes a customer feel very comfortable to know issues, small or large will be dealt with. A very happy customer and look forward to referring your company to others.

Best regards,

Jane George, Sydney, Australia

I love how comfortable I felt in the apartment and the location was perfect to enjoy the ambiance of such an amazing city.
Rik's concierge services were extremely helpful for the scheduling of reservations throughout the trip.

Peter Whitehouse, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

We just wanted to thank Paris Luxe. I have to admit that I was worried about renting an apartment on the internet. And, we tend to have very high standards for comfortable accommodations (in past trips, we have bought sheets or even mattresses for apartments that were not comfortable, I know, a bit neurotic) This apartment is beautiful and comfortable. And, has a great kitchen. While eating out is fun, it can get old. Having a beautiful kitchen and a lovely dining area allowed us to feel like we lived in Paris, for a week. The location is fabulous -- close to the St. Paul Metro and also walking distance from everywhere. We even walked home from the Musee D'Orsay. No sweat. We loved the Paris Luxe people -- their concierge is fabulous as is their property manager. We had an amazing time -- thank you for offering this lovely apartment for rent!

I just want you to know what a wonderful time we had in Paris.  The Balthazar apartment was absolutely fantastic.  The apartment, especially the kitchen, and its location made our vacation. 
Thanks so very much again!

Dan Walker, Boulder, CO

I wanted to thank Paris Luxe and Rik Gitlin for giving us an amazing Paris experience.  Over the last 35 years my wife and I have stayed in many of the best hotels in the world.  None of them hold a candle to our stay in the Balthazar apartment.  Perfect apartment with a perfect location. Rik was great in getting us reservations at some of the best restaurants in town as well as lining up a memorable excursion to Normandy. We really felt like we were living in Paris for the week and not just out of a suitcase at a hotel. Spectacular apartment, Spectacular experience.

Villa Rentals: Americans in Paris
A New York villa rental company specializes in the City of Light.

text by: Kim Fredericks

February 1, 2008

Much like New York has Fifth Avenue, Paris has the sixth arrondissement. The area, located on the Left Bank, offers visitors a sensory feast of bustling sidewalk traffic, art galleries, cafes and the Jardin du Luxembourg, the city’s largest public park. "It’s the place where 90 percent of our customers want to be," says Rita Borges, managing director of Paris Luxe Apartments. Founded in 2002, the New York company manages a collection of luxury apartments throughout Paris, catering to travelers who are short on
time but longing to take a vacation that lets them live like Parisians.

The company, which carries a Better Business Bureau seal of approval, enforces a strict set of rules for the apartments in its collection. Its website allows users to browse through more than 50 apartments based on location, size or rate. The site even mentions whether or not a unit has air conditioning. Paris Luxe also includes airport transportation, complimentary museum passes and a concierge to greet guests, arrange dinner reservations and explain the workings of the apartment.

Though staying in an apartment offers a more spacious option, visitors who are accustomed to hotel services may be more comfortable in a hotel, cautions Borges. "With our apartments travelers can live like a Parisian: You can go to the market, cook for yourself and have friends over and entertain in your own space," she says. "But if you want room service and housekeeping on the hour, you might want to stay in a hotel." For those who wish to be immersed in a French lifestyle, Paris Luxe offers an array of apartments that cater to a person’s tastes and vacation plans.

History buffs will enjoy La Fontaine, a 1,850-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment set in an 18th-century carriage house. Available for $12,000 per week (current rates may fluctuate in accordance with the euro), the home features original beams, vaulted ceilings, traditional French wallpaper and fabrics, and a collection of antiques from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries that make it popular with romantics, says Borges. "Details like the traditional French wallpaper matching the bedding remind you that you’re in Paris," she says.

The 1,500-square-foot Aimee ($16,000 per week) displays the owner’s personal collection of African artwork. The home rests above a first-floor restaurant, Le Bon Saint-Pourcain, which will send a chef to prepare meals for guests in the apartment.

Less spacious but just as dramatic is the 1,230-square-foot Bizet ($4,800 per week), a two-bedroom apartment tucked into the arches of the Place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris, built by Henry IV in 1605. Bizet is within walking distance of the National Picasso Museum, the Musée Carnavalet, Notre Dame and the Seine River. "The apartment faces a park across the street," says Borges. "When you open the windows, you feel like Marie Antoinette."

Borges says the Antoinette and Toulouse apartments are the best options for American travelers who want the familiarities of home. Located in the Latin Quarter, Antoinette ($3,998 per week) is a cozy one-bedroom penthouse apartment with views of the Seine River, various nearby dining options and a close proximity to the Louvre. In the same neighborhood, the Toulouse ($4,527 per week), a 750-square-foot one-bedroom
apartment, allows for outdoor dining on an open balcony and shopping on nearby rue de Buci and St. Germain. Both apartments are owned by the same American investment banker, who added personal touches such as fine linens, built-in kitchen appliances, espresso machines and air conditioning.
