If you are a respectful and mature group or a family with well behaved children you will enjoy a wonderful apartment on the Left Bank. Sorry, no singles or individuals under 30 unless accompaied by a parent. Minimum Rental is seven days. The apartment building is quiet and we expect our guests to respect the tranquility of its residents. It is not a hotel nor is it party central. It is located in the Heart of the 7th Arrondissement, located off the Avenue de la Bourdonnais and faces a quiet street. The neighborhood is one of the safest in Paris and a favorite of famous personalities and discerning visitors. The apartment is equipped with two air conditioning units in the family room/guest bedroom and master bedroom. This exceptional property, can accommodate 6 persons comfortably. The apartment could, under limited conditions, accomodate seven but it will be exceptionally 'cozy'! Helpful French people will great you upon your arrival along with a bottle of wine and sparkling water. One will feel like a true Parisian going into a completely furnished apartment while visiting Paris! Open the inside windows Tuesday thru Sunday to smell the fresh baked pastries. Sorry, no smoking or pets are allowed!
I have completely renovated, furnished and decorated the apartment in the Fall of 2008. If you can appreciate and treat this two-bedroom (each with a queen bed), two bath apartment, complete with a separate living area (a queen sofa sleeper) as your second home, I am sure you will enjoy your stay in Paris. The apartment is but a few minutes from the Eiffel Tower! Take an evening stroll to the Eiffel Tower and watch a dazzling strobe light display. This building is completely secure and is located on the second floor (3rd American), with easy elevator access! The building designed by Pierre De Taille and was constructed in 1905. A true Parisian building!
The apartment is over 625 square feet in size and contains nearly all the amenities one could use during one’s stay in Paris. The kitchen is fully equipped… but why bother when there are so many wonderful Bistros, coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants nearby! The facility is also equipped with a washer and dryer, hair dryers, iron and ironing board, two flat screen TV's, a DVD player and internet access. The wood floors were recently refinished and adorned with Asian rugs.
Minutes away are the rue St. Dominic with wonderful local shops, pharmacies, grocers, coffee shops and bakeries for your enjoyment. A few blocks down rue St. Dominic is the rue Cler, one of the most famous market streets in Paris and features the best green grocers, patisseries, delicatessens, wine merchants, cheese merchants, fish shops and butchers in Paris. Food is a passion for Parisians and there are numerous Zaggot rated restaurants located in close proximity to the apartment.
Paris is a walking city and from our apartment one is centrally located to all of the Parisian attractions! The Champ-Elysees is approximately a fifteen minute walk! The Seine and the “Bateaux Mouches” river tour are about a 5 minute walk. There are also multiple gardens to visit, sit, read and enjoy the ambiance of Paris!
There are several bicycle rental stands nearby to enjoy the sights of the city. A suggestion for your first day in Paris is to take one of the open air busses to get a good idea of where the major sights are located in Paris.
Transportation throughout the city is extremely convenient. If you prefer not to walk everywhere, there are several bus stops and metros nearby, which go in different directions of the city. The Louvre, Notre Dame, Musee D’Orsay, Marais and Sacre Cour are but minutes, by public transportation, from your door step. The RER from the airport is located a few blocks from the apartment and only requires a simple transfer at St. Micheal. This train will also take you to Versailles. Bicycles can easily be rented at the end of the street for easy transportation throughout the city!
All taxes, linens, towels, gas, electricity and cleaning (cleaning included with minimum of 7 day stay), are included. The apartment also has a Pack'n'Play for infants.
Our guests can be met at the apartment by our representative who is very familiar with the neighborhood. He or she will also show you the technical features of the apartment and answer questions you may have.
I purchased this apartment in Paris after searching for over six years! I often travel to Paris for business and can explore the sights between appointments. The evenings are reserved for a fabulous dinner at one of the many favorite restaurants! (There is a listing of many enjoyable in the apartment book). Many of these are located on the same block as the apartment! A leisurely stroll home from dinner, with the lights of the Eiffel Tower in the background, makes for a perfect night cap!
I chose this location for its proximity to the Eiffel Tower, the tranquil neighborhood and transportation locations, which are conveniently close. The neighborhood is not full of the commercial traffic one experiences in other parts of the city. The tourist attractions and shopping locations are within walking distance for one's enjoyment.
The taxi ride to and from the airport is reasonable and the apartment is easily located. If you are comfortable with adventure, one could also take the train from the airport.
You can enjoy waking up in the morning, opening the front door of the apartment and smelling the aroma of the freshly baked pastries and breads drifting from the bakery on the ground floor. Guests can load up a back pack with Paris books and camera and explore. One can occasionally stop for a beer or glass of wine throughout the day and enjoy the ambiance of the city. Many times too, one could stop in one of the beautiful gardens located through out Paris and read.
