Paris Sejour Reservations, Inc. (PSR), a company specializing in renting privately owned, tastefully decorated vacation apartments offer a whopping inventory of more than 600 units throughout the city, including the timeless neighborhoods of Champs-Elysees, the Latin Quarter, and fashionable Saint-Germain.
Rates range from $80 for a studio apartment vacation rental, $100 to $200 for a one-bedroom, to $140 to $280 for a two-bedroom unit. Minimum-stay requirement is five days. The savings are tremendous because the PSR apartments have fully equipped kitchens. Guest stock up in the famed food boutiques and markets, and then dine out once a day, enjoying the valued refinement of French cuisine. The savings for breakfast alone can be $15-$20.
I popped into Paris a few months ago and booked with PSR Paris Vacation Rentals. My rental apartment on the Left Bank at 18 Rue Guisarde was in an XVIII Century building, typical of the Saint-Germain-des-Pres area. It overlooked a narrow, one-way street in the heart of Saint-Germain, and reminiscent of an earthy Hollywood movie set. Rue-Guisarde, lined with 13 or so cafes, is where one could spend months sipping wine, people-watching, and soaking in the city's legendary flair for life.
Guests are also greeted with a platter of cheese and a nice selection of wine. Paris France can be a moveable feast if you know how to caress the Eternal City.
