La Reserve Paris
Deluxe furnished rentals are the way to go for publicity-shy A-listers, security-conscious royals and business travellers with children in tow. The ultimate in serviced apartments in Paris, La Reserve has a trump card of particular value in Paris and that is space. Take a two-bedroom duplex with Eiffel Tower view and you’d have to shout to be heard from bedroom to kitchen. The frills are few (own-brand bathroom products, Mariage Freres teabags) but the home office is tip-top, and you can order in anything; the concierge service competes with the best in the world. You can invite friends for dinner, watch a Chabrol film in the home-cinema area, and definitely have a bath in one of the best tubs in town. Swanking in and out of your own apartment on the place du Trocadero is a pleasure in itself.
