I fell in love with the area and the apartment in 1977.
It was for me a dream come true, it had everything I love. It was perfectly situated, in a busy area which is great but the apartment is nevertheless quiet. The 2 balconies are perfect to enjoy the sun, have a drink or breakfast or just sit outside after your day out. It is so romantic at sunset and so incredibly Parisian chic. I love to walk in Paris and it is within walking distance of everything anyone loves about Paris. The Champs Elysees, the Opera house, famous concert halls, restaurants and shows... are also in walking distances.
Shopping is great too at the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette right on Haussmann Bd, only minutes away down the street.
Being close to the American Embassy and the French Presidential Palace, the area is very safe.
The unique benefits are better described by my guests:
'We're giving Marie and Pascal five stars only because it won't let us give them six. The apartment is beautiful, on one of the prettiest streets in Paris, within walking distance to just about everything you want to see in the City of Light. And the customer service was incredible. They answered all our questions before we arrived, met us at the airport and escorted us to the property. We opted for the walking tours with Marie and she showed us all over the beautiful city and offered some great tips - like the secret entrance to the Louvre where you don't have to stand in line. She knows Paris and is happy to share her knowledge and enthusiasm. She even gave us a cell phone that we could use to call if we had any questions or problems. We truly cannot imagine a better experience ...'
Thank you Robert from Charleston, North Carolina to describe so well the unique benefits of Haussmann.
