HIGH-END DESIGN EXPERIENCE IN SAINT-GERMAIN

7th Arrondissement Eiffel Tower Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Comfortable high-end design apartment in the heart of Paris, walking distance to main monuments, museums and the Seine, at the chic and international 7th arrondissement.

Building and location:

At the second floor (first floor European, second floor American) of a wonderful French building built in 1901, the apartment overlooks Boulevard Saint Germain, right at Assemblée Nationale metro stop.

The classic building has a secure entry (with a code), concierge and elevator.

This large, 70 square meters (778 square feet) apartment is located in the heart of the mythic Rive Gauche (left bank), a stonethrow from the Seine and a 10 minute walk from the right bank and the Place de la Concorde, 300m from the Musée d'Orsay, and 600m from the Orangerie.

The apartment accommodates comfortably a family of four to five people: two sleeping areas are conceived, each one having its own bathroom. It has two fully equipped bathrooms, a laundry room with washer & dryer and a high-tech living kitchen.

The Living room:

Contemporary art and design lovers will appreciate Achille Castiglioni’s Parentesi lamps, Marcel Wanders’ surrealistic chandelier, Thomas Heatherwick’s Spun chair, and some interesting artpieces of notable Latin American contemporary artists.

A very confortable Paola Navone’s Ghost queen bed sofa, a designer’s prototype coffee table of the late 1960s, a minimalist desk and Dennis Santachiara’s chromed stool complete the living room. The home entertainment system is assured by a Teac hi-fi audio with Bose speaker system, Sony blue-ray/DVD deck and a Samsung flat TV. There is a safe as well.

The living kitchen:

The large and fully equipped Italian kitchen from Dada Cucine includes a four-burner induction ceramic stove, oven, microwave, Nespresso coffee maker, dishwasher, a complete supply of cookware, French white porcelain dishes, contemporary cutlery and glassware.

A Le Corbusier table, six Mario Bellini’s leather chairs and the mythic Toio lamp by Achille Castiglioni complete the dining room for unforgettable dinners overlooking Boulevard Saint Germain.

The living space in the kitchen/dining room is extremely versatile, converting itself in a meeting room/office when the kitchen is closed.

The bedroom and en-suite bathroom:

The quiet bedroom at the back of the apartment has a comfortable queen-sized bed (160 cm = 63 in), iconic Berenice lightings on industrial night tables, IPod docking station, a wooden library, and a spacious closet with mirror. An en-suite bathroom with wooden floors and Italian anthracite tiles features a very large and comfortable shower (55 x 47 in).

The second bathroom and the laundry room:

The second bathroom has anthracite grey Italian tiles, Fantini faucets and shower and a hand-made red ceramic sink. It also has a 'bidet'.

To provide optical depth, the elegant corridor has been painted in a Parisian anthracite shade of grey, matching the color of the wooden floors of the apartment. The laundry room at the end of the corridor is equipped with washer and dryer, a small sink and a storage.

The independent heating of the apartment is guaranteed by Italian designed hot water flat radiators.

Amenities:

The apartment has cable TV with several English-language channels, free high speed wireless Internet access and free telephone calls to local landlines and to more than 70 landline international destinations (list of countries will be provided on arrival). Free calls to US landlines and cell phones. Air conditioning.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is the second time we stay at this lovely and elegant apartment, centrally located, surrounded by fantastic buildings in a great residential area of Paris.



Location is just perfect, you can go by foot anywhere or take the metro just across the road. You don't need a car in Paris!



We came back because we felt at home immediately here. The owners were helpful and gave us great ideas on good restaurants, fantastic exhibitions and special shops. We felt comfortable and had space, which is not the case in any of the 4-star Parisian hotels we have been to before.



We loved to have a cozy breakfast in the high-tech kitchen with a Nespresso and a delicious 'pain au chocolat' from Gosselin. On Thursday, we just went downstairs to have a drink at the Jazz bar La Dauphine.



In the apartment everything is brand new and works, bathrooms are impeccable, the kitchen is very modern and well-equipped and the whole apartment is beautifully decorated and charming. Nothing in the apartment is cheap or tacky.



We will come back!



Best wishes from Buenos Aires,



Beatriz and José

We decided to buy this wonderful 'pied-à-terre' when we discovered this lovely spot of Paris.

We have restructured and decorated this apartment with passion and thought, as we are both art and design amateurs. We have tried to leave our print in every detail and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

WONDERFUL LOCATION IN THE 7TH ARRONDISSEMENT, VERY CLOSE TO THE RIVER SEINE.

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful location in the 7th arrondissement, very close to the River Seine. We enjoy walking and walked almost everywhere - to the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, Jardin des Tuileries, Rodin Museum and garden, Musee du Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Notre Dame cathedral. The metro entrance is just up the sidewalk, so you have the option for rail transportation as well. It is a lovely apartment, with contemporary art in every room, quiet for an apt in the city, very clean and secure. There is a little grocery right across the street, a post office at the end of the block, and so many coffee shops and restaurants nearby. We had a wonderful week, and would definitely stay here again!

ST GERMAIN

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is beautifully designed and very comfortable for two people. The bedroom is off a courtyard at the back of the apartment and is very quiet however the main room is on the street side and above a bar. We were with our two teenage children who slept on the sofa bed in the main room. The street is noisy night and day and the bar closes early evening but opens early and receives deliveries around 7 am. There are two bathrooms which have amazing design very comfortable and great water pressure for Paris. The location is amazing, close to the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay and Eiffel Tower. There is the metro academie nationale just 10 steps from the apartment. The neighborhood is mostly government offices so is quiet on the weekend. There are many restaurants and bars in St Germain that are within walking distance. The owner, Victoria, greeted us on arrival and was very helpful explaining everything in the apartment and provided details about the neighbourhood. She was also great at assuring that the apartment met her high standards of cleanliness.

TRES CHIC.

  • 5 of 5
Tres Chic Parisienne apartment in fabulous St. Germaine neighborhood. Washer/Dryer and 2 full bathrooms a total plus. Comfortable Private Master for 2. A bit small for a family of 5 with 3 Teenage Boys (2 were on the pull out sofa - 1 had to sleep on the floor as the IKEA "roll away" cot would not hold him) but manageable. Tastefully decorated and appointed. Close to great restaurants, Eiffel Tower, Louvre. Very close to 2 main train stations. Victoria gives a very thorough overview of the apartment and her expectations upon arrival. Everything in detail. C'est bon! Merci.

DO NOT RECOMMEND

  • 2 of 5
Our stay at Casa Courty in Paris is not what we expected. The day before we arrived in Paris, we received an email from the owner and she wanted to change our signed, fully paid contract and add an additional charge for the 5th person. She had advanced knowledge of the people staying at her apartment as they were listed in our contract.
The apartment was nice but the rules for using the apartment were very strict. We were afraid to use the kitchen because of the restrictions on the imported Italian appliances. Throughout the house there are notes that say “private do not use" and even the blankets were off limits.
Below the apartment was a café/restaurant/bar. So the smoke came up through the apartment and the noise level at night was loud especially if you were using the pull out couch to sleep on.
I would not recommend staying here. For the price you can stay in a hotel and feel more welcome than staying in a place where you are living on the edge afraid you might break something or use something that you are not supposed to.

Owner's Response: Dear Debbie,
I am sorry to hear that your experience was not according to your expectations. It seems to me that you have more experience staying at hotels than in private homes.
It is a widespread practise to charge a fee for a requested extra bed, and this is clearly written in the general rental conditions of our property published at our webpage in the VRBO/Home Away website. By mistake, I had not included this extra fee in the rental agreement and therefore sent you an e-mail notifying you my omission before your arrival. However, you decided not to pay any difference.
Regarding your description of the property, it is a usual practise to have an unlocked closet with a label that sais “this is private, please respect” where all replacements and personal items are stored. It is also normal to store extra blankets in the upper shelves so as to leave the lower ones for the guest to use. We have written and printed clear instruction manuals for all appliances to make them more ‘user-friendly’ for our guests. All the above is not meant to make our guests uncomfortable, on the contrary!
There has been a lack of empathy between us from the very beginning, and this is unfortunate. I regret that you could not enjoy your stay in our property as much as all our guests always have.
With very best wishes,
Victoria

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful, well appointed and very clean apartment. The location for walking or taking the Metro can't be beat. The living room of the apartment has a beautiful view of Blvd. St. Germaine and the bedroom is in the back, making the sleeping area very quiet.
Victoria, the owner, was there to meet us upon arrival and was very responsive to our email inquiries.
The convenient restaurant below makes a wonderful cappuccino in the morning and the dinner we had there was very good. All in all, this is an ideal location in Paris. We are already considering our return stay at Casa Courty.

The apartment is conveniently located in the heart of the mythic Rive Gauche (Left Bank), overlooking Boulevard Saint Germain in its most residential area, the Assemblée Nationale.

A stonethrow from the Seine, 300 meters from the Musée d'Orsay, 600 meters from the Orangerie and the Tuileries gardens facing the Louvre, ten minute walk to the right bank and the Place de la Concorde, this apartment will be the gateway to main attractions during your stay in Paris.

It is surrounded by great coffee shops, typical brasseries, wonderful bakeries and some of the most renowned Michelin starred restaurants like Joël Robuchon's L'Atelier, Alain Passard's L'Arpège or Hélène Darroze.

Saint Germain-de-Près and its famous cafés and brasseries such as Les Deux Magots, Café de Flore, Lipp Brasserie, La Société and Ralph's are less than a ten minute walk.

Transportation is really easy. The Assemblée Nationale metro stop is across the road and the bus stop with buses to all the major attractions is right in front of the apartment building. A taxi stand is 150 meters away, close to the Musee D’Orsay. The airport shuttle 'Les Cars' to main airports stops at Les Invalides, ten minute walk from the apartment.

This apartment is located in front of a traditional Parisian news stand that sells international press, if you feel like having your first 'café crème' with a croissant and a newspaper!
