Boutique Apartment Rental Company in Paris Blends French Chic with American Comfort. Travel Like a Local, Sleep Like You Never Left Home.

La Charme du Marais, one of the 25 upscale properties in Cobblestone Paris' apartment rental portfolio

All our apartments have been renovated with high-end furnishings and are serviced by a full-time English-speaking Cobblestone Paris staff that we personally trained to be proactive and responsive in the way Americans expect but don’t often find in Paris.

Ten years after Ryan Miller impulsively bought a Paris studio apartment as an anniversary present for his wife while he was in France on a business trip, Cobblestone Paris proudly celebrates a decade of providing exceptional apartment rentals to visitors worldwide to the City of Lights.

With 25 impeccably furnished and conveniently located apartments in their rental portfolio, Cobblestone Paris’ eight studio and 17 one-bedroom properties accommodate one to four guests. This year, a two-bedroom apartment with Notre Dame and Seine River views will be added to comfortably house up to six people.

Boasting authentic architectural nuances such as 300-year-old hand carved wooden beam ceilings, stone walls, and terracotta floors, most of the spacious apartments also include modern amenities like full kitchens with dishwashers; free WiFi, internet-enabled television, and free long-distance phone service; and washers and dryers. With locations in the Marais, St. Germain-des-Prés, Bastille, the Île Saint-Louis island, Louvre, Champs-Élysées, and Montorgueil, all are close to gourmet stores, boutiques, cafes, restaurants and popular tourist attractions.

“When my wife Jennifer and I vacationed in Paris in 2004, we decided to stay in a furnished apartment instead of at a hotel so we could truly immerse ourselves in the French culture,” explained Ryan, who worked with an airline for six years before committing to running Cobblestone Paris on a full-time basis. “That may seem a common thing now in the Airbnb era, but at the time, most people only stayed in hotels and missed a huge opportunity to deepen their experience in Paris.

“After spending a week walking the cobblestone streets and exploring the city, Jennifer and I vowed that we’d have our own apartment there one day,” continued Ryan. “Who knew then that only 10 years later, we’d not only have achieved our personal dream, but also started a company that offers a true Paris apartment experience to visitors from around the world?”

The Millers’ first apartment purchase was Studio La Fontaine, a cozy studio apartment located on a picturesque cobblestone square in the then-unknown, but now-vibrant and gentrified Canal Saint-Martin area of central Paris. They’ve since purchased two additional apartments, and manage the remaining 22 properties with the same attention to detail, comfort, and guest satisfaction.

“We like to say that we have something for everyone,” added Jennifer. “One of our properties on the island behind Notre Dame is located in one of the oldest buildings in Paris, dating from the 1600s, which offers a unique historic charm. Other properties, such as Royale du Marche located near the Louvre, are a bit less medieval and more Versailles-inspired. All our apartments have been renovated with high-end furnishings and are serviced by a full-time English-speaking Cobblestone Paris staff that we personally trained to be proactive and responsive in the way Americans expect but don’t often find in Paris. This has helped bring many of our guests back to us again and again.”

Since Cobblestone Paris’ expansion has always been an organic one resulting from their acclaimed reputation within the industry, the Millers plan to continue building their apartment rental inventory as appropriate opportunities present themselves. Rigorous standards and portfolio consistency are critical components of the Cobblestone philosophy.
