i believe in miracles

bonsoir all, hope you’re enjoying your evening! i’ve been obsessively working on the trip and have seen about 400 apartments and hotels in the past few days for some of the guests meeting in paris.

exhausting but fun, great just to look at some of the interiors, oh so french, but then i’d expect that. and thank god! i liked this one a lot. you can see it here. it’s trop cher but the decor was fun

and absolutely anything from here practically

especially when you share them with your friends :) this one’s got goofy linens, but the view!

these were some of the priorities:

1) View and windows that go to the floorw
2) Working Fireplace
3) Immaculate bath with stand-up shower
4) Neighborhood – St. Germain, the Marais, Ile St. Louis, the old Latin Quarter
5) Terrace
6) Price – $2500 U.S. Dollars for 8 nights (can go up to $3000)
well that was a tall order but i think by some miracle we did it. (more when we book tomorrow).
this obviously was not it but somehow i love this impossibly small room. ok, buona notte!

    All much, much nicer than the 2 star dive we’ll be staying in. Two stars if we’re lucky. I would die for those goofy linens compared to the burlap we’ll be sleeping on. I’m honestly thinking about bringing my own flat sheet.

    :)

    Marvellous spaces!

    Though I love the glitzy french one, my heart couldn’t take the price tag. I have grown to love the small, cozy ones with charm :) Lovely pics dahling!!!

    Well, we have some, but not all:

    NOT a favorite neighborhood, but a great sleeper in a great central location: rue Sainte-Anne in the second. Busy during the day and evening, silent at night, even with the windows open!

    17C hotel particulier, Old Masters galleries downstairs, hand-knotted rugs, 18C maps, 2 BR, 2 baths, eat-in kitchen with skylight, ascenseur, wonderful gardienne.

    Two– count ’em– “working” fireplaces (though, of course, fires are illegal in Paris).

    Brand new upstairs bath with stand-up shower.

    Windows don’t go to the floor, but windows on three exposures, including south (in the living room) and a view of rooftops and the Passage Choiseul. And did I mention silence?

    Alas, no terrace. But no goofy linens, either! Cotton sheets, fluffy American towels.

    And your book, along with about 30 other Paris-related titles- on our bookshelf!

    Info here (please forgive the roundabout URL, as well as this blatant apartment self-promotion, as I can’t find a private email address on your site):
