    Is "at" the correct preposition here?

    I am interested in visiting Paris during the first week in July. Have you got available places for 2 adults at this time?

    Yes.
    Also, I would phrase it as "places available".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    It sounds OK but it might depend on who you are addressing the question to. If you are addressing a travel company which arranges organised tours, then asking about the availability of places is fine. However, if you're simply contacting a hotel, then you would ask about the availability of rooms, not places.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
