Paris Perfect

Sunrise, Pont Alexandre III

Dear Friends, I hope this finds you very well. Over the last month, I’ve been traveling again and recently had the opportunity and great pleasure to stay at one of Paris Perfect‘s gorgeous, quintessentially Parisian apartments in the 7th arrondissement, an area new to me but which I grew to love and enjoy greatly.

Imagine waking up with the Eiffel tower outside your window and the bustle of a charming Parisian neighborhood five flights below.

A brisk walk brought me to the Seine early each morning, past adorable cafes and fragrant boulangeries just opening for business.

The many beautiful flower shops were, of course, a favorite stop.

As I travel to Paris regularly these days, and have visited the city since I was 14, I am frequently asked about where to stay and the best areas to use as a base. I can say now without reservation that I’ve added Paris Perfect and their fabulous Eiffel Tower view apartments in the 7th to my list of best recommendations.

Maybe this all seems like a far off dream. But if Paris is on your list of “someday” dream trips, why don’t you decide that this is the year you will go. No matter what it takes, you will be so happy always that you did. And it can be easier than you think.

I so believe that it can happen for you. My next post will include some of my top tips for making your Paris dream trip an actual reality. Hearing about your adventures in the City of Light would give me great pleasure.

Sending much love,

G

  • Georgianna these photos are just gorgeous! Every time I see your photos of Paris I just want to go back. I am saving now so I can return :) That shot showing the Eiffel Tower from the hotel window is stunning.

  • So nice to have you back here :) Love your photos of Paris, and wow those ranunculus! Makes me want to make a paper version of them :)

  • Georgianna, these are immaculate images!! The photos of the ranunculus and roses, as well as the Sunset at Pont Alexandre III are remarkable. I am literally misty eyed looking at these. I do hope that one day I am able to visit Paris but for now, it is beautiful to see it through your eyes. Thank you for sharing!

  • Impossibly lovely pictures, G! Love your color palette. Paris is calling me now and you’re responsible! :-) My great grandmother was French, so there’s at lease one good reason to go there, don’t you think?

    BTW, I still can’t connect to your blog from your emails…can’t imagine what the problem might be.

  • I know you would be the right person to guide me through the best spots in Paris, Georgianna.

    Luckily your photos make me feel like I’m in paris for but a moment because chances are I won’t be going there anytime soon! How I love an orange sunrise and the way it makes me feel. Especially if it’s a warm hazy morning.

    I was wondering … do you go to Paris on assignment, G? Lovely, lovely images : )

    March 29, 2015
  • Oh, G. The choices you’ve made have lead you to the most beautiful, artful life. Your images are like a spa for my tired heart. Thank you for sharing them here. And, congratualtions, my friend! I am still so excited about Victoria!

  • Sweetest Georgianna,
    I cannot find the words to apologize for this delay of mine, a fortnight of ‘holidays’ from work saw us working full immersion in restoration works in a new room which we’re going to rent and where everything had to be done, from walls, floors, forniture and so on to arrive to those little details that make a room a cozy room … so, my husband has come back to his work, I’m still going on waxing old family piece of furniture and taking care of the last refinements …. I hope to have your understanding !
    I’ve been missing you so much, some days I hadn’t even the time to on my notebook, alas !

    Paris is always perfect, but in your enchanting pictures it’s even more lovely then by real, my dearest Georgianna !

    I wish you so much love and with much gratitude I’m sending a big big you with all my heart !
    In the hope to know you and hosting you very soon

    I have died and gone to heaven with this post – seriously, just stunning pictures – and Paris is my dream place, so this just makes me all warm inside!!!!!!!

  • A visit with you always sets me to dreaming. Today I am dreaming of a pistachio colored house filled with fresh flowers, the scent of sugar, and soft pink light.

  • Your pictures are stunning and make me want to jump on a plane right now and go to Paris. I absolutely love that city and have been thankful to visit it at least once a year for the last couple of years but it never gets old!

    Your photos made me dance around my kitchen! I am headed to Paris for my inaugural visit….would love to know more about the apartment you rented! I am staying for 5 nights…trip of my lifetime (cancer patient – bucket list) and hoping to fill my dream!

    The heart-stopping picture of the Paris apartment with the Eiffel Tower in the background almost didn’t look real! Is it?? I’ve seen it in a number of places and it never fails to bring tears to my eyes, I want to go back to Paris so badly, it hurts…. Will I ever get there again? Noway of knowing but I hope so.

    I’m going to Paris this summer and would love to stay in a beautiful place with an Eiffel Tower view such as this. Is this on AirBnb?

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I value my relationship with each of you and do my best to respond, although with travel and location work it might take me a little while.
