8th Arrondissement Champs Elysees Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home with open, spacious rooms and elegant furnishings
Grain of truth
Just a street from the Champs Elysées, Rue Penthièvre is a branch of Parisian history. Built in 1860, you can still trace your fingers across original beams despite its recent pruning. And with animal prints and intricately-carved wooden furniture, the past and the present combine as effortlessly as oak and mistletoe. Those who’ve come to the city for its art will find themselves surrounded by galleries, but when your bones grow weary you’ll be just as content enjoying the views beyond the sitting room’s boisterous windowsills from the comfort of the plump leather sofa.
Top of the tree
Your hosts work in digital communication and split their time between Paris and London. Your hostess’ favourite pastime is cooking, and her table is accustomed to bearing deliciously exotic dishes from further afield.
As the tallest oaks tower above the city, so too will you from this colourful fifth floor apartment, where the bathroom’s sky-blue walls are sure to rejuvenate. At once airy and cosy, the sitting room’s windows are shaded not by leaves but by stripes of sunshine-yellow, while inside the furniture is a mix of the classical and the avant-garde and the kitchen is brand new.
And when the sun dips beneath the lowest bough, there’s a pretty double bedroom and a bright single where you can sleep amidst the knots and whorls of ancient timber.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose 8th Arrondissement Champs Elysees
Locals might tut that lesser establishments have tainted the Champs-Élysées’s former grandeur, but if pressed, Parisians will agree that the most famous avenue in the world is still a pinnacle of taste and prestige.
In the couple of kilometers stretching up from the Place de la Concorde towards the Arc de Triomphe, exclusive fashion labels rub shoulders with waiting list-only restaurants run by legendary French chefs, and the nightclubs and cocktail bars host a carefully chosen clientele.
Residents browse new season Céline and while away hours in the behemoth Louis Vuitton flagship, before stopping at the city’s most elegant installment of Ladurée or venturing nearby to Rech, the Alain Ducasse-renovated Mediterranean seafood brasserie. Sunday’s brunch destination du jour is stylish Asian-inspired La Table du Lancaster.
In the evenings, streets empty and groups swell into restaurants like Eric Frechon’s Epicure, where coming by a table overlooking the courtyard is a feat, and Dominique Bouchet’s eponymous contemporary art-filled restaurant, where his transformative approach to classic French country cuisine makes any waiting list qualms forgettable.
Nights out in this neighbourhood are unlikely to be early ones, whether you start out with the champagne selection and cigar bar at the Blind Bar, part of the Martin Margiela-decorated Maison Champs Elysées, or cosy book-filled members club, the Saint James Club. Later on, Le Baron, the exclusive nightclub run by impresario André Saraiva, is the best place to observe Parisians dancing, flirting and pouting, mirroring the fun-seeking flaneurs of centuries past on the world's most famous avenue outside.
