Thinking about visiting Paris, but not sure where you’re going to stay? Ditch the hotel and opt for vacation rentals instead. Renting a luxury apartment gives you the feeling not just of being on vacation but a glimpse of what it’s like to live in the city of love. Here’s what you can expect from the best luxury apartments in Paris:

Fantastic views.
Whether you want to overlook the Seine (the river that runs through the city) or be close to some of the most romantic foot bridges in Paris, choose a luxury apartment that offers a world class view. The best luxury apartments in Paris won’t just be expertly decorated and designed for your comfort. They should also connect you with the city’s most prominent landmarks and shopping districts for extra convenience.

Proximity to shopping and dining.
If you’re looking for something truly unique, Paris has a number of flea markets with antiques and collectibles. Paris food markets also sell fine cuisine and ingredients from local farmers and artisans with items you can’t get back home. If you’re in one of the best luxury apartments in Paris, you can pick up your ingredients for dinner and take advantage of the kitchen.

For more upscale shopping, check out the Galeries Lafayette, a department store featuring products from some of the top designers in the world. You can also dine there at the Bordeauxthèque and choose one of their 1,200 Bordeaux wines. While you’re on Boulevard Haussmann, where the Galeries Lafayette is located, you can check out some of the other department stores, including Printemps and the Galerie Vivienne, which is home to a variety of boutiques, bookshops, toy shops, and more.

A touch of history.
Even those who have never visited Paris before know that the city is rich with history. From the Catacombs to a number of historic sites, Paris — and France as a whole — have plenty to offer history buffs.

And not only does the city feature the world’s most renowned art museum (the Louvre), but it is also has plenty of other spaces dedicated to France’s artistic history. For instance, a private townhouse that once entertained greats like artist Eugène Delacroix, composer Frédéric Chopin, and opera composer Gioachino Rossini, has been a museum called The Garden of Hopeless Romantics since 1981. For the literary fans in your family, check out the Hemingway inside the Ritz Hotel, which pays homage to the author with a collection of his photos on display.
