Our beautiful one bedroom apartment is superbly located in one of Paris's most desirable neighborhoods, the Carré des Antiquaires. Boutiques, restaurants and cafés surround the charming and quiet street, Rue de Beaune. An easy walk to the Musée d'Orsay, Boulevard Saint Germain, the Louvre Museum and the Seine, there is no better spot from which to enjoy your stay in Paris.
The 17th century building has been completely refurbished and includes a lovely marble entryway and modern elevator. The recently renovated apartment is located on the third French floor. The layout is ideal with the living room facing the street and the bedroom on a quiet courtyard.
Decorated with an emphasis on soothing beige, green and rose tones, the general feeling is one of comfort and calm. The apartment measures 55 square meters though it feels larger due to the excellent floorplan and 3 large windows in the living room. The floors throughout the apartment are done in parquet and marble. Rich area rugs provide contrast and warmth.
The living room offers plenty of comfortable seating, as well as a dining area with antique sideboard. Sit at the round table and enjoy your morning coffee and buttery croissants while the quartier comes to life. Or wind down at the end of the day with a glass of champagne by candlelight, and watch the street lamps glimmer in the growing dusk.
Down filled pillows await on the sink-in comfortable couch. A beautiful daybed with trundle pullout converts to a top quality twin bed. Several side tables with good lamps for reading and a mirror above an antique chest add warmth. Two bookcases hold lots of guidebooks, including the owners’ 'Best of Paris' recommendations for neighborhood walks, restaurants, museums, and boulangeries.
A small hall leads to a half bath with toilet and sink. The bedroom and bathroom are located at the end of this hall, ensuring privacy and quiet from activity in the living room. The bathroom features a full-size tub with fixed showerhead, large sink, towel warmer and lots of storage.
Across the hall, the bedroom offers two twin or one king-size bed made up with good quality sheets, duvets and down pillows for a peaceful night’s sleep. Built-in cupboards on either side of the bed provide both drawers and hanging storage. The window, which looks onto an inner courtyard, floods the room with morning light. Good reading lamps, an antique framed mirror and artwork complete this room.
The kitchen features an open, inviting feel and includes an antique cafe table with chairs and a marble topped bar. Painted cupboards and stone tiled counters lend an air of authenticity but the appliances are all new, the lighting perfect, the Krups coffee maker ready to go. We have just added an espresso machine and milk steamer/frother. Everything you need to cook a gourmet meal (or just heat one up) is here.
You will be met at the apartment by our agent in Paris. He will give you the keys, a tour of the apartment and make sure you are comfortably settled.
Weekly maid service is included in the price.
This apartment is perfect for two people.

We live on the coast of Maine where I was born and raised. My husband adopted Maine as his home since he lived all over the country growing up. We have two daughters ages 24 and 27 and a 13 year old yellow lab named Chance. We love Paris and Provence almost as much as we love Maine. We feel very blessed to have homes in our two favorite places in the world. We are all studying French (except for Chance - he's already bilingual).
My husband and I fell in love with Paris when we were 20 years old and he came to spend Christmas with me, my junior year abroad. Twenty-five years later we fell in love with Paris all over again and bought an apartment on rue de Beaune, in the 7th arrondissement, very near the 6th. We completly renovated the apartment to create a perfect, peaceful nest. We go as often as we can and when we're not there we rent to guests. Our amazing guests sometimes become our very dear friends. Meeting people who love Paris as much as we do has been such a gift.
If you walk out the door to our building and take a right, you'll see the Seine and the Louvre. Take a left from our door and within 5 minutes you're walking down Blvd. St. Germain. Our favorite Sunday ritual is walking up to the organic market on Raspail, buying a roasted chicken and vegetables, some cheeses and a tart for dessert. On the way back to the apartment we stop at the news stand and buy the Herald Tribune. Of course the wine has been chilling in the refrigerator since Saturday afternoon. We each take a couch in the living room, get under quilts and read and sip our coffee until we're hungry for Sunday lunch. After, we take a long walk along the Seine, usually ending up at Chez Francis for a glass of champagne and Eiffel Tower fix!
