SPACIOUS CLASSIC 1 BEDROOM APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF PARIS

1st Arrondissement Louvre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Enchanting, Traditional, Centrally Located

This is a very spacious and authentic apartment of 130 square meters (1,400 square feet) consisting of 1 air-conditioned bedroom, a dining room, a large living room, a modern kitchen, a salle des bains with American shower (no bathtub), one toilet, and office area,and a laundry room. Sleeps 2-4. Maximum number of guests: 4

The apartment is on the 3rd floor (4th American) and has an elevator. It is in a very secure location and has a live-in guardian who speaks English.

Amenities include:

• Free land line telephones to all European countries. One is a US 650 area code, so friends in the US can call you in Paris without incurring international call fees and the other is a local Paris telephone number,

•Cable flat-screen 3-D TV and DVR in living room, second TV and DVR in bedroom, but no cable,

•Reliable and secure high speed internet and printer accessible by Ethernet or USB,

•Fully equipped kitchen with breakfast table and all modern appliances and tools to prepare and serve lovely meals,

•Views of Blvd. Saint-Germain and courtyard (from the kitchen)

This is a huge one bedroom apartment by modern French standards. Most apartments of 130 square meters (1,400 square feet) have long ago been “remodeled” into 2 or 3 or even 4 bedroom apartments. This apartment has preserved all of the proportions and decorations (moldings, windows) that were in place 150 years ago; only the kitchen and bathroom (salle des bains) have been modernized to a size and functionally that Americans expect.

The building is not a huge one: There are 6 floors (including ground floor) in typical Haussmann style, with 8 owners. The apartment is ½ of the third floor, so it is quiet and private.

Additional details:

•All the floors are the original oak herringbone,

•There are three beautiful marble fireplaces with huge mirrors,

•The living room has a comfortable convertible leather sofa, another sofa, three comfortable chairs, a coffee table (all by Roche Bobois), and a flat-screen 3-D TV with cable and DVD, and sound system,

•The tiled bathroom (salle des bains) has a large, fixed rain shower — no tub to contort into,

•A combination washer/dryer in the laundry room is also available,

•Ample dishes and serving implements are available for entertaining,

•The dining room has a Roche-Bobois dining table that seats 6 - 8. As in the living room, large beautiful French windows look out to the tree-lined boulevard,

•The eat-in gourmet kitchen has a table and chairs and top appliances including a dishwasher, microwave, large refrigerator, espresso maker, mixer.... in short, every accoutrement needed for cooking that special French meal after shopping at the open air markets is available.

•The air-conditioned bedroom is large with a queen size bed, night stands, and luxurious linens. There is a marble fireplace with mirror and a large window that opens to the street below.

•In the bedroom, a large armoire with hangers and selves plus drawers is available for your use.

•The bedroom also has a reading chair, a writing desk, and a CD/radio

•There is an office area in the entry hallway where the phone, printer, and internet are located. Plug in your iPad or computer and you’re connected to the world -- no need to work from the bed or couch.

Upon your arrival you will be met by a fluent English/French speaking Parisian liaison who will give you your keys, explain how the building operates, make sure you’re settled in OK, and answer any questions you may have. In addition to receiving a detailed information pack well before you arrive, our liaison is available to help you with any of those unexpected “challenges” that can occur when vacationing abroad.

Eric Hartwig purchased this apartment in 2003

We began vacationing in France 20 years ago and it was love at first sight. After ten years of exploring the country we decided that we needed a home base in Paris. We searched for three years and were surprised to learn how many apartments had been subdivided into tiny rooms and had miniscule kitchens. We finally found the ideal apartment in the ideal location, and we're sure you'll find it a terrific place to welcome friends during your sojourn in Paris.

This apartment couldn't be better located. It is truly steps from some of the most jaw-dropping sights in Paris, yet it is not inundated with tourists. Situated in the quieter Left Bank, it is still easy walking distance to the excitement and shopping of the Right Bank. With the metro, bus, and RER right outside your door, all of Paris and the surrounding countryside are literally at your feet.

AMAZING IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
This beautifully decorated apartment is in the best location in all of Paris. It's mere steps from the Seine and the Concorde, there is a Metro across the street, veli bikes and the surrounding neighborhood is very walkable. It's so centrally located that you can be anywhere in Paris in under 25 minutes. The building is stunning, from the entry door to the marble in the stairwell, it really goes a long way to enhancing the stay and the Paris experience. The amenities are all top notch, and there is lots of space, which is somewhat rare for Paris. I can't recommend this apartment enough!

This apartment presented exactly as the photos online. The greeter is a personal friend of the owner and proved to be a valuable resource for us during our stay. He speaks fluent English and French and was especially helpful............personal Thanks to Stephane.
Great apartment....Great location....Great value. If anyone is looking to stay in the 7th (our fav.), and try to live like the French this just might be the one for you. The apartment is very spacious, and the owners provided everything possible amenity that you would need. We stayed for 33 nights, and our adult son and daughter in law joined us for 5 nights (slept on the pull out sofa-they are both very tall and loved the comfort). What's nearby.......everything!

BIG, BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This large apartment is tastefully decorated with antiques and every other supply that you could possibly need! Our host was on time and available for any questions. I cannot say enough great things about this apartment! The photos were accurate with the exception that it did not show how large the apartment rooms actually were---HUGE! The apartment was spotless.The location was superb as well! We walked to all the major museums and took public transportation that was close by to visit Versai. I would recommend this apartment to anyone!

JE T'AIME THIS SPACIOUS, BEAUTIFUL AND WELL LOCATED APARTMENT

je t'aime this spacious, beautiful and well located apartment
  • 5 of 5
Most people go to Paris and take pictures of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame...we have those pictures, but we also have pictures of this gorgeous, clean and large apartment!!

We enjoyed the convenience of the bus and Metro stations across the street as well the ability to walk and or bike to so many areas.

It was also a treat to have a full kitchen to chef up new recipes with groceries from Le Grande Epicerie.

Good restaurants, famous museums (including Musee D'Orsay) and wonderful shopping are all close by.

You can't beat this fantastic apartment!!
