Award winning actor, Joe Mantegna enjoyed the City of Light (Paris, France) in a gorgeous 3 bedroom Paris luxury vacation rental facing the river Seine instead of a luxury Paris hotel. As the World's #1 Paris Luxury Experience Curator, Paris Luxe, a NYC based boutique Paris luxury rental agency is accustomed to heavy hitters like Mr. Mantegna and has all the resources in place to ensure a remarkable Paris stay that would rival any luxury Paris hotel.

At Paris Luxe, we give guests the most sought after gift available in today's fast pace world: time and peace of mind

As Joe Rossi on Criminal Minds, television and movie actor Joe Mantegna doesn't have the opportunity to jet to Paris with his family. But fortunately, family man, Joe Mantegna and his lovely wife Arlene were able to celebrate daughter Gia's birthday in the City of Light, Paris, France, a city he holds dear to his heart. Where did he stay? If you are thinking the Four Seasons, George V, le Hotel Crillion or le Bristol, think again.

Joe enlisted the services of a New York City based boutique luxury rental agency Paris Luxe to locate the Paris apartment of his dreams or at least Arlene's Paris vacation apartment fantasy. You see, Joe proposed to Arlene on top of the Eiffel Tower back in the 70s so Paris is quite the magical city for the lovely couple. After a detailed discussion, Paris Luxe knew the Coco Paris Apartment, an Architect Digest style 3 bedroom, 3 bath with a private suite downstairs worthy. Situated in Ille St. Louis, the Coco Paris Apartment faces the river Seine and would be perfect for the Hollywood family of seven. This elegant Paris vacation apartment had previously hosted Oscar nominee Colin Firth and other well heeled guests.

"Hotels are hotels. From one city to the next, the experiences are going to be somewhat similar." Mantegna said. "Paris Luxe is different from hotel life and I recommend it because when you go to a foreign city, it gives you a taste of what it would be like to be a resident, a native, opposed to just being a temporary guest."

As the World's #1 Paris Luxury Experience Curator, Paris Luxe is not limited to just placing guests in luxury Paris vacation apartment rentals. Paris Luxe hand holds each guest every step of the way unlike other Paris luxury apartment agencies or luxury Paris vacation apartment owners that just hand over the keys and tell you to close up when you leave. Paris Luxe orchestrates the entire Paris luxury stay for guests. From the moment, a guest reserves a Paris luxury apartment, the process commences. Paris Luxe guests are welcomed to Paris VIP style with an arrival appropriate for the luxury guest. The VIP arrival allows guests to bypass customs and immigration lines upon landing in the airport. Luxury guests are whisked to a private car and the luggage is picked up on their behalf. The entire time in the arrival airport is less than 10 minutes.

By utilizing the services of Paris Luxe's Paris based concierge Rik Gitlin who was featured on the Travel Channel's Passport To Europe, Paris episode with Samantha Brown, takes care of Paris Luxe guests before and during their time in Paris. Paris guests have all of their needs taken care of since Gitlin is available 24/7. "Since coming to Paris Luxe, I feel really great about the level of service, I have been able to provide our guests." says Gitlin. Not only does Gitlin liaison with the New York City agents, he is the bridge to the property managers as well securing novelty items, flowers upon arrival not to mention restaurant reservations and day trips.

The Mantegnas wanted to re-visit Versailles since Joe had done a movie there several years back, he wanted to return to some of his old haunts and introduce his younger family members to the historical location. Gitlin coordinated a private excursion with a fluent English speaking guide and capped the night off at a restaurant that Joe remembered from his time in Versailles.

"At Paris Luxe, we give guests the most sought after gift available in today's fast pace world: time and peace of mind" says Rita Borges, Managing Director of Paris Luxe. There aren't many US agencies that can boast that they have visited each vacation rental apartment and Paris Luxe goes one step further by insisting that their agents spend a minimum of 7 nights in each apartment showcased.

"It's a nice compromise between just staying in a luxury hotel and someone just handing you the keys to a luxury apartment and saying lock it up when you leave. The Paris Luxe experience has the best qualities of both." Mantegna explained.

Guests who want to create a Paris experience that they will remember for a lifetime are encouraged to visit, or call toll free 1 800 708 7659. Ironically now is the best time to start planning your 2010 holiday Paris vacations and your 2011 summer vacations especially since June and New Years are the busiest times of the year.
