A breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower – Paris skies - “Atelier” studio overlooking the rooftops of Paris
Everyday the unmistakeable feeling of the aura of Paris greets you with your first look out the window of this 6th floor “atelier” studio. The changing skies and the unique Parisian light that has attracted artists of all ages to the city fascinates the beholder. (Currently there is a rennovation of the 17th Century Hopital Laennec. You also see the cranes in the first photo. For this reason the weekly and monthly rental rates have been reduced since early this year. The cranes, however, do not block our view.)
Recently modernised, the studio has an open kitchen with all equipment required for a your convenience and comfort. The sofa bed and alcove dining area add to the charm. The sofa opens to a comfortable normal size double bed. Via TV, DVDs and internet access you may keep in touch with the rest of the world. An airy skylight enhances the space. Located on the colorful Parisian left bank, you have easy access to the most important historical sights, museums, theaters, cinemas and shopping areas of the city. Whether you prefer to walk, bike, enjoy the view via the three local bus lines that pass in front of the building, or if you want to connect to the outskirts of the city via the metro, the heart of Paris is available within easy reach. Local buses travel regularly to main spots in the city. (Notre Dame, St.Germain de Pres, the Louvre, Les Halles, Centre Pompedieu/ Beaubourg, Hotel de Ville).
At the same time this studio offers you a home away from home to escape busy streets to a peaceful atmosphere. You have the choice to breakfast at home or at a nearbye cafe, lunch at a local restaurant and return from sightseeing or shopping to rest and fix your evening meal. There are excellent restaurants, brasseries and snack bars that offer a variety of meals for all tastes at all price levels nearbye. You may also pick up catered warm meals from the famous Grand Epicerie of the Bon Marche or one of the other nearbye catering services.
A wide range of shopping opportunities are also available nearbye. The elegant and oldest department store, the Bon Marché, is only across the way. The neighborhood is filled with a variety of exclusive boutiques (rue de Sevres, Cherche Midi and rue du Bac as well as the discount best brands in the rue St.Placide).
If you are flying into the city you may also reach the studio via the airport Bus from Orly or Charles de Gaulle/ Roissy Airport to Montparnasse, from there you have a short walk or taxi ride. The studio is equally available via the RER local airport train with one connection at the Metro Cluny to our exit Sevres Babylon. All of the train stations are easily accessible by metro from here.

Owner’s Profile I am originally from California and my husband from Germany. We came to Paris as students and absolutely fell in love with the city. Once married we settled together in Germany and raised our children in Berlin. We knew that Paris would become a second home. We both ended up having many professional ties and obligations in Paris. We bought this studio over twenty five years ago. It is the wonderful location and it was indeed the spectacular view that sold it to us. We live in Berlin, but we have always spent much time here both professionally and socially. Our children were able to attend school here and spend many vacations in France. Paris is still one of their favorite spots. They have entered professional life in very different parts of the world and traveling has become common to all of us. Thus, we have less time to take advantage of our studio in Paris. For this reason we have decided to make the studio available to tourists who might cherish Paris as much as we do. We have completely modernised the studio to include all of the equipment required to add to the comfort of a stay while enjoying the city.
What do I particularly like about this location in Paris? Paris is a city to walk in. No matter how often one visits one is compelled, at least I am, to walk to almost all destinations.. Paris is not only beautiful and the most important city for tourism in Europe, it has a unique intimacy. This neighborhood is very lively, the small shops amazingly interesting and the shopkeepers attentive. In addition to the architechtural sites, the numerous historical spots, I love the many open air fresh food markets at all times of the year. Especially wonderful in this neighborhood is the weekly Sunday open air market on the nearbye Boulevard Raspail. It is known for its rich assortment of healthy fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and meat and all kinds of condiments. It is the best place to plan your Sunday dinner. The sellers, producers, bakers, grocers, fishmongers, butchers are all welcoming and willing to advise you in how to prepare certain delicacies. Us shoppers are also amusing curiosities.
For your intellectual / cultural interests you have several French bookstores only a short walk away French readers La Hune (open until midnight) on the Place St. Germain in the neighbhood the famous Café de Flore is known as a favourite for French intellectuals. A bit further along St. Germain toward Odeon you can catch the most recent English language (or German, Italian and of course French) films in the original version at the nearbye cinemas. Parisians also love the cinema. The revivals of the best American, British and other European old timers will be found around the Boulevard. St. Michel and Cluny in the Latin Quarter, another short distance by foot, bus,or metro. Not far away is another destination for a short walk, the beautiful Jardin de Luxembourg Park. Also the walks along the Seine and in the Jardin de Tuilleries set between the Louvre and the Place Concerd. Within easy reach and I find them equally beautiful for passing aimiable time, alone or with others in Paris on a Sunday or holiday. But there is no end to other pleasant tours and cosy corners within and on the outskirts of Paris. Although most Paris visitors bring their own guides you will find some proposals in our studio that we and our guests propose to you. Have fun enjoying being a Parisian for at least a week or more!
