16th Arrondissement Passy Trocadero Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 Elegant Haussmanian Bldg
Imagine walking out of your apartment and seeing “La Grande Dame en Fer” (the Eiffel Tower) directly in front of you…grand and dominating during the day, and sparkling at night. “Le Baccarat” is nestled on a quiet side-street 1 block equidistant from the famous Baccarat museum with its elegant Philippe Starck restaurant and the renowned Asian Guimét museum. This large elegant studio is located on the ground level on a private courtyard in a beautifully maintained Haussmanian building. The apartment was completely gutted in 2013 and rebuilt to top standards. “Le Baccarat” boasts every modern and top of the line convenience with state of the art technology. The apartment has 3 ½ meter ceilings and 2 sets of large double French doors that open onto the courtyard. The fully equipped kitchen fulfills any need from a simple breakfast to multi-course dinners at home. The modern, “American” style bathroom features a suspended WC, large walk-in shower and towel heater. There is ample storage space with 3 large armoires, a deep closet and a slightly elevated bed under which most luggage can be stowed. The large “smart” TV can be used for 3D movies (glasses in desk), or for internet use. Fiber-optic WiFi is provided along with free land line calls to anywhere in Europe and the U.S.
The location is ideal: ½ block off rue Kléber, “Le Baccarat” is midway between the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées and Le Trocadéro (each an easy 5 min walk), which houses the Palais de Tokyo, Musée de l’Homme and overlooks the Eiffel Tower. The area is vibrant during the day and active in the early evening with many bistros and restaurants just minutes away; yet with few real bars, noise is kept to a minimum.
Within a 2 block radius there are more than 30 bistros, cafés and restaurants, ranging from informal to elegant dining. There are numerous patisseries for your morning baguette, a Pharmacy (30 yards), dry cleaner, 2 large grocery stores, Tabac for coffee, sundries and papers, and several florists. You are 5 minutes from the heart of shopping on the Champs Elysées and 30 different movie theaters. Twice a week (Tuesday & Saturday morning) there is the beautiful open-air market 2 blocks away on Place Ièna.
Transportation from “Le Baccarat” to virtually any location in and around Paris is easy and excellent.

As the daughter of french parents, I spent my life growing up both in the U.S. and France...so I have spent my life loving both. I have always loved Paris, but even when living there never owned an apartment. My dream was to own an apartment and to let others enjoy it as much as I do. As I know the city very well, I spent years looking for an apartment that matched the location, accessibility and neighborhood I was looking for. When I saw this one, though I knew I needed to do a lot of work (it was completely gutted), I knew it was 'the one'. I hope guests who stay here will enjoy it as much as we do.
In an elegant 18th C Haussmanian building, the apartment is ideally situated. It is within 5 min walking to the Champs Elysées, the Arch of Triumph and the Trocadéro overlooking the Eiffel Tower. It is central to everything, but is on a side street with its own private courtyard and is therefore very quiet. With 3 Metro lines within a few blocks and 4 bus lines, not to mention it's fantastic location for walking, all of Paris lies at your feet.
