Few apartments in Paris combine authentic wood beams, wooden oak floor and stone walls dating back the medieval ages. No expense was spared to highlight the beauty of the original stone wall with Louis XV mirrors and chandeliers.
Contrary to their claim of being in the true center of Paris, most Hotels and apartments are not. Apply the 1-minute-rule and ask if there are any apartments you want that are less than a one-minute-walk from the river? This apartment, located in Rue des Trois Portes, is quiet, charming and centrally located just one block from the Seine and only a few steps from Notre-Dame in the heart of historical Paris. Everything here contributes to create an elegant and refined space combined with the charm and history of Paris.
There is a Queen size bed on the mezzanine and a double bed in the Alcôve bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped for those who really want to sample a flavor of Paris and buy your groceries from an open market, a truely authentic Parisian experience!
Arguably the most lovely location in Paris, because a walk at midnight over the magic bridges will allow you to take in the wonders of Paris then walk safely home, after dark among in all the brightly lit streets, lined with shops, bakeries, cafes and restaurants.
You will also save money. First by walking everywhere and avoiding taxis and public transportation. Secondly, you will save money on food since the apartment is near fantastic Gourmet Stores and a famous fresh market (host 3 time per week). The “Marché Maubert” known mostly to Parisians only and which offers the most delicious fresh and cooked food, cheese, bread and finest wines.
The apartment is on a quiet street, but right in the middle of a bustling neighborhood with an abundance of cafés and restaurants, shops and cinemas and also just minutes from the Pantheon, la Sorbonne, Notre-Dame, the Seine, the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Jardin des Plantes.
This is our home too. Until recently it was our full-time family home, and has a lovely warm feel to it – we left it with great reluctance, and return whenever possible.
Charm and History in the heart of Paris « Aux Trois Portes de Notre-Dame »
'NOTRE-DAME CHARM' is a charming and spacious one-bedroom loft apartment centrally located just one block from the Seine and only a few steps from the cathedral of Notre-Dame. The apartment has all the typical Paris features you could dream of: wood beams, wooden oak floor, stone wall and three full-length windows and small balconies at every window.
It has been fully remodeled in 2011 by a wonderful architect, who preserved all the old features, added some fabulous touches of his own, and installed a level of comfort rarely found in Paris rental properties. The harmony of color in blue and some family objects contributes to create an atmosphere of elegance and refinement.
The primary entrance to the apartment is on the first floor and leads to an open living and dining area. The living room has a generously sized yet casually styled large blue sofa together with two elegant and comfortable blue velvet arm chairs. In addition, a handsome chest with two centre-front panels looks like it might be out of the Medieval Paris. The chest contains a CD player with an eclectic selection of jazz, classic and Parisian music. On this chest you will also find a Samsung TV with an ultra flat screen offering 180 different channels. Phone calls to US and most European landlines are free, and there is an unlimited internet Wi-Fi access. A nice collection of guidebooks on Paris and France will inspire you during your stay.
The modern kitchen next to the spacious dining room with a wooden dining table that seats six, will help you to produce gourmet meals. The contemporary-design-style kitchen comes fully equipped, with dishwasher, a four-burner electric stove top, microwave and regular ovens, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, toaster and all pots, pans, cutlery and dishes. With the washing and dryer machine in your apartment, you can have clean, fresh clothing during all your stay.
The “alcôve” bedroom offers a comfortable double bed, and in the mezzanine a queen-size bed offers additional accommodation, making this an ideal unit for one or two couples – or for a small family up to four. Because of the open, interior, staircase, children under 4 years are not permitted.
