Parisian Pot of Gold

Parisian Pot of Gold, Plum Guide home in Paris

Click to book Parisian Pot of Gold now: from £300 per night Quite literally dripping in gold, spectacular hand-painted original features, including mouldings gilded with gold leaf, retain hundreds of years of history encapsulated in this home. Listed as a heritage monument, the building dates back to the reign of King Louis XIV and has since been redesigned by a Parisian architect, allowing guests and residents to immerse themselves in French history, alongside all the contemporary comforts of modern-day luxury living. When we say "luxury", that's exactly what we mean, as the apartment is decked out in plush beds and sofas, antique furniture and one-of-a-kind artwork throughout. With copious restaurants, bars and cafes – all within walking distance, you'll have plenty of options when it comes to sampling the local cuisine. That being said, you'll certainly want to make the most of the opulent dining area in your Parisian home too, so sit down to a French banquet of dreams one evening for an unforgettable experience of pure indulgence. Bon appetit! The night doesn't end there – follow your dinner of great food and wine with a relaxing soak in one of the cosy jacuzzi bathtubs. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

New Romantics

New Romantics, Plum Guide home in Paris

Click to book New Romantics now: from £300 per night This pretty-as-a-picture apartment will help you feel right at home in Paris. The building was completed in 1860 and there are plenty of reminders of its history, from the high ceilings and parquet floors to the ornately carved fireplace and tall windows. That's not to say it's without modern comforts though – you'll love the sleek kitchen, luxurious marble bathrooms and workspace where you can catch up on emails while working remotely. Our favourite spot is the balcony, where you can sit and enjoy croissants with coffee for breakfast while watching the city come to life below. Down on the street level, you'll find many of Paris' top attractions are virtually on your doorstep. The Louvre is just a five-minute stroll away, while a ten-minute walk will take you to the Notre Dame. There are plenty of brasseries and jazz bars to discover nearby and, thanks to the excellent public transport links, you can visit other parts of the city with ease. Sleeps up to 7 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Glass & Forge

Glass & Forge, Plum Guide home in Paris

Click to book Glass & Forge now: from £171 per night Set within a calm courtyard in the heart of Le Marais, this flat is an oasis of serenity within the buzz of central Paris. We love the exposed ceiling beams and the floating stairs that lead up to the mezzanine bedroom. Cocooned within a wrought-iron frame, this comfortable space feels rustic and warm in contrast to the contemporary decor of the ground level main room. The bold blue sofa beckons to be relaxed in, while the dining nook invites slow breakfasts over chats about the day ahead’s activities. Speaking of things to do, you couldn’t be better placed to see Paris’ main sights. You’re just a ten-minute walk from Notre-Dame and a fifteen-minute stroll from the Louvre and Place des Vosges. The Centre Pompidou is also just around the corner, three minutes away on foot. After a day of exploring, come back home for a glass of wine in the shared courtyard before dining out at one of the neighbourhood’s stellar restaurants. Alternatively, cosy up in your chic pad for an intimate meal at home, serenaded by Edith Piaf on the Bose sound system, of course. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Scandi Dreams

Scandi Dreams, Plum Guide home in Paris

Click to book Scandi Dreams now: from £267 per night The charming and creative district of Le Marais is home to this equally charming apartment. In Haut Marais, just a six-minute walk from the Filles du Calvaire metro stop, find a little calm and serenity in this bustling area. Scandi-style decor whisks you away from the cobbled streets of this old area of Paris, and into a fresh, elegant flat. Modern furniture dominates the open-plan living and dining spaces, with rich wooden cabinets and flooring throughout. We love the French windows with their simplistically designed wrought-iron balconies. Slate-grey woven bedspreads, and light grey concrete-style en-suites, bring class and calm to the sleeping spaces. And with classic art prints like Nighthawks adorning the walls, you might get a taste for visiting a few more galleries. The Musée Picasso is only a seven-minute walk, La Galerie de L'instant is only three, and the architectural marvel of the Centre Pompidou is less than fifteen. One minute from home, check out the fresh produce at the Marché des Enfants Rouges, Paris’ oldest food market. We recommend sampling some international street food, before picking up French classics like wine and cheese to enjoy back home in the evening. Sleeps up to 6 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Esmeralda's Dance

Esmeralda's Dance, Plum Guide home in Paris

Click to book Esmeralda's Dance now: from £200 per night With spectacular views of Notre Dame Cathedral, this penthouse studio apartment offers a dreamy stay in Paris’ chic Latin Quarter. Housed in a 400-year-old building, history abounds here, not only within the home’s walls but in its enviable surroundings too. Inside, wood floors, vaulted ceilings, skylights and a large mirrored wall create a warm, bright welcome with a beautiful bed taking centre stage in the main room. Open up the door here to step out onto a private flower-framed balcony where a table and chairs invite alfresco breakfasts and sunset drinks while feasting on the glorious views. When you’re not gazing out over the city’s rooftops or catching up on work at the dedicated desk space, go out and explore the sights. You’re just a five-minute stroll from Notre Dame, a one-minute walk from the famous Shakespeare and Company bookshop, and a fifteen-minute walk across the Seine from the Marais district. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
