Overview

1st Arrondissement Louvre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

If you want to discover Paris by foot, this is the place to be.

Our beautiful architect-designed apartment lies in the very heart of the city at Chatelet. It is located on the top floor of an eighteenth century listed building on a quiet leafy street opposite one of the city's most romantic flower markets on the banks of the river Seine.

A ten minute stroll in any direction takes you to some of Paris's most famous landmarks. Wander South to the Ile de Cite and Notre Dame, East to the Hotel de Ville, North to the Centre Pompidou and West to the Louvre.

The bright and airy apartment has stunning views over central Paris. It has been simply modernised retaining its historic features and its quirky 'artist's garret' feel. However it is also extremely comfortable and well equipped.

The living area opens onto a South facing balcony. It has an inviting sofa area with bookshelves, satellite televison and wireless broadband. We often stay in the apartment and it is full of interesting books and CDs which you are welcome to use during your stay.

We love gathering around our big oak dining table and there is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need to wine and dine. And the view from the sink of the twinkling river at night certainly takes the edge off washing up!

Both bedrooms are drenched with natural light and have French windows which open onto small balconies. The double beds have extremely comfortable Dunlopillo mattresses and there is plenty of storage space.

The bathroom has a good power shower and heated towel radiators.

If like us you are passionate about food then this is a great part of the city to base yourself in. One of the country's oldest and most loved gourmet food markets on Rue Montorgueil is a short walk away. Below the apartment is one of the best boulangeries in Paris. There are masses of places to eat within five to ten minutes walk away...from lively sidewalk restaurants to haute cuisine.

The apartment is a home from home for us and we hope it will be the same for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There was nothing that we looked for that we didn't find!. We would most definitely stay in this apartment again should we return to Paris and will recommend it to others. We have now rented 14 different apartments in Spain, Italy and France, and this lovely apartment is in a tie for top place! Thanks again.

What could be better?

  • 5 of 5
The location of this apartment is absolutely the best! One block from the Seine with a view of rooftops and the river..what could be better? the apartment is on the 6th floor..very top. It is full of light with a small balcony opening off of each room. It is fully equipped and very comfortable. Arrangements were easily made. the owner is quick to respond and very helpful with any questions asked. The manager who met us on site was friendly and helpful as well. She explained everything, gave us lots of good information for our 2 week stay and her phone number in case of any problems(which we did not have!) The location is so perfect for walking any where in Paris and yet the street and neighborhood is quiet and relaxed. since the street on that block is one way..there really isn't much traffic noise at all. when the windows are closed, it is very quiet. the neighborhood is great..many good small restaurants and a GREAT boulangerie downstairs. Grocery store,Franprix, is just a block away. We LOVED it an would go again if we could. it was a perfect place to stay in Paris.

Great Apartment - Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
Location was a key reason for our selecting this apartment. Several sights we wanted to see were within walking distance -- Louvre, Notre Dame, St. Chapelle, etc. The Chatelet metro stop was a half block away and it has four subway lines. We used taxis our first days in Paris, but in hindsight we should have mastered the subway system sooner. We were pleased that all the taxi drivers new Avenue Victoria. There was a taxi stand a half block from the apartment where we could always get a cab -- notably we immediately got a cab at the stand at 7:20 on a Sunday morning. Time is important while you're on vacation and that is why the location of this apartment was key for us. The apartment is on the top floor which was great and made for rooftop views and sunshine streaming in the windows. It was pleasant to sit on the balcony and take in the city lights. The elevator was a big plus - especially in carrying luggage and when we came back tired from a full day of walking. The neighborhood was especially nice. There was a wonderful bakery downstairs and many cafes/restaurants in the area. Noise was not a problem. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and made you immediately feel at home. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and organized. Beds were comfortable. Although the apartment was not air conditioned, this was not an issue for us as we stayed there the first week of September. There was plenty of Paris tourism information and a book with previous guests' comments. The information on VRBO was very accurate and the owner was most helpful and pleasant in responding to our questions. We enjoyed our stay very much!

My girlfriend and I stayed here in November. The location was outstanding - a short walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Marais and Rue de Rivoli. The apartment was well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. We found a bakery and grocery store nearby as well as several good restaurants. We were met at the appointed time and the operation of the apartment was well explained.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in June, 2012, a family of 5, 2 adults and three children, ages 13, 11 and 5. We have never rented a property through vrbo or over the web. I decided only to consider properties with outstanding reviews. We live in Mexico City, and did all transactions on-line. The owners were patient and thorough in answering our many questions. We were met as planned on our arrival and given lots of great tips for the city. We could walk to most sites, and the Chatelet metro stop was steps from the front door. The flat was charming and clean, well-located and very comfortable. The kitchen had all we needed. We enjoyed the view. With three kids and minimal luggage, being able to wash clothes was important. We loved our week in Paris, and staying at this property as opposed to a hotel greatly enhanced our experience. A check for the refund of our deposit was received in a prompt and timely manner. We felt at home, and would stay again.

Great place for first trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5
The apartment met every expectation in terms of location, views, amenities. It is at the top of the building (about six floors) so the views are really nice. The location is hard to beat - on the same block as the Chatelet metro stop which has 4 subway lines. The local cafe's are very good. The boulangerie below the building serves a fantastic french breakfast. There is an excellent supermarche (including fromage and vin!) about 2 blocks away. It is within walking distance to the Louvre, Notre Dame, Latin Quarter, Marais district, ile de St. Louis, etc. It can get a little loud at night with all of the cafe's below, but that is a small price to pay for being in such a prime location. Simply put, if you want to experience Paris more like a Parisienne compared to a tourist, this is a great choice. Would go back tomorrow!

We did not spend a lot of time in the apartment, but we did appreciate the well-appointed kitchen. The wi-fi works very well, as does the shower.

One note: the elevator did not work for a couple of days while we were there. No big deal because we don't mind the stairs, but if you are unable to walk several flights of stairs that is something to consider.
