This apartment is located in the lower part of the 9th Arrondissement in a quaint area known as St. Georges. The quiet cobblestone streets around the St. Georges area are a mere 10 minute walk from both the Grand Magasins and Opera Garnier, with only another 10 minutes bringing you to the Jardin des Tuliers near the Louvre. This area was hand-picked by a very particular owner who wanted to be located near all of the shopping, restaurants and excitement that Paris has to offer, but unfortunately is a rather light sleeper. This beautiful apartment satisfies all of these needs by being on a quiet street a mere two blocks from two different Metro stops, in a peaceful, safe (American 4th floor), well ventilated corner location! At nearly 850 square feet, with free WiFi, Cable TV, DVD, Stereo, Washer/Dryer, an immaculate Kitchen and a separate Dining Room, you are certain to enjoy your visit. Just added: Freebox Free Phone calls to the USA,Canada,Australia,Europe, and 60 other countries!
Note From Owner:: Our purchase of this apartment is the culmination off a lifelong dream. My wife and I have always wanted to own a Paris apartment which would allow us to immerse ourselves and our children in French culture, living as Parisians do. However, we had some rather high standards to adhere to. We wanted a large apartment with two bedrooms. It had to be clean, safe (at least 3 floors up), light (many windows), with original architectural details, well ventilated (we have 4 exposures), and quiet (I am a light sleeper). I also required no more than a three block walk to the metro and similarly needed to be near a typical Parisian market street for shopping (rue des Martyrs is fabulous!). Imagine my surprise and delight when we found and purchased our 4th floor corner apartment on rue de la Rochefoucauld! I can now sleep with the windows open, enjoy all of the architectural charm the apartment originally came with, and enjoy our wonderful neighborhood. C'est Parfait!
From the owner:
My wife and I plan on spending half of our time in this apartment once I retire. We wanted a safe home where we could leave the windows open at night and safely walk home late without worries. We also wanted a real neighborhood. One close to the grand boulevards and the hustle and bustle of nightlife but not in the middle of it.
Its Paris! Whats not to like? In the case of this apartment we appreciate the elevator and the security of not being too close to the ground floor. We leave our windows open at night when we want to and feel very comfortable doing so. We also appreciate that our apartment is uniquely situated in a corner building with three exposures. We never hear the neighbors and the area is quiet, safe and very walkable to everything you could possibly want - grocery, bakeries, gourmet food shops, cafes, restaurants.. there must be hundreds.
The apartment was very comfortably appointed with every amenity we could wish for, very conveniently located, yet blissfully quiet and peaceful. We loved the beautiful furnishings and felt like true Parisians living here. Now that we've discovered the joys of renting an apartment, we will never go back to staying in cramped hotel rooms. So nice to have your own kitchen to create a meal or just have a snack. A real gem of a restaurant is walking distance away – highly recommend Chartier at 7 fue Faubourg Montmartre, also in the 9eme. Fabulous food at inexpensive prices, very French but very casual. Long line after 8pm for dinner. We arrived at 7pm and had no wait. This restaurant is apparently famous and has been in place for over 100 years. Do go! We look forward to our next stay and will recommend to friends!
My 2 daughters, ages 5 and 8 just returned from a
lovely visit to Paris. The apartment was perfect for
us. Very comfortable, it felt like a 2nd home. And
was very close to the Metro which allowed us to get
around quite easily. The neighborhood was quiet
with plenty of shopping nearby. We enjoyed
ourselves so much that we have asked to return
there again next year. The owners were very
accomodating and helpful with any questions.
Definitely a great find.
The apartment is ideally located and wonderful to come back to at the end of the day. It is extremely comfortable, even with its French Haussmann and Empire style. The beds were outstanding, the kitchen absolutely perfect with everything one may wish for in cooking. We had a wonderful time there and would recommend it enthusiastically.
One could ask for no better accomodation in Paris! The apartment is conveniently located, making most destinations easy to get to. The library of tour guides and Paris-phanelia contain plenty of new ideas for even the most seasoned City of Lights visitors. The apartment is tastefully and comfortably furnished, with all the amenities one could need. It truly feels as though you are staying in someone's home and that it's a privelege to be able to share it. One has all the day-to-day items at hand and local shops are nearby for anything else. In addition to the great beds and furniture, the modern appliances, cable TV, and wifi connection all make for a very comfortable stay. The apartment is great for kids, as they can have their own room and place to relax, or watch French cartoons on TV or choose from a number of DVDs generously made available. In sum, this is the antithesis of an extended-stay hotel or corporate housing arrangement! We hope to be back and wish another unit in the building were available for sale!
The Rochefoucauld apartment provided us the perfect environment for our long-awaited month in Paris. We wanted spacious, charming yet comfortable living quarters in a quiet, non-touristy Parisian neighborhoon, and we were not disappointed.
The apartment is an adroit combination of Parisian ambiance and modern comfort. Both kitchen and bathroom are thoroughly modern and the spacious kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. All of the large and comfortable rooms are tastefully decorated; there are thoughtful amenities throughout, such as the much-appreciated shopping cart, and ample storage space for an extended stay.
Totally unknown to us prior to this visit, the ninth arrondissemont is a delicious discovery, especially the fabulous rue des Martyrs. The once-again fashionable and fascinating neighborhood is steeped in history, fun to explore, with every convenience and two unique museums close at hand.
This was a wonderful Parisian home, made more so by Lauren's hospitality, and we look forward to returning.
We enjoyed our stay on Rochefoucauld; the size and corner location suit
us to a Tee, and the furnishings and amenities are enjoyable for a long
stay. Don't worry about the ironing board cover, quiche dishes, and other
small items; we are accustomed to adding a few things for our use,
especially when we know we will be returning to use them again, and it was
so well equipped that we found very little to add. It was a pleasant
surprise to find a shopping cart, abundant ice cube trays, potato masher,
ice cream scoop, and enough wine glasses for entertaining, which are things
we have had to buy in the past. We have rented 6 different Parisian apartments over the last 10 years and yours was the best equipped, it is obvious you intend to use it yourself from the way it is furnished and equipped. Lauren, the manager, was very pleasant and helpful. During our stay the building was very quiet,
we only saw the neighbors one day.
The neighborhood abounds with good restaurants, which is our raison d'etre.
I think we covered most of them and will fill in the gaps when we return in Oct. Rue des Martyrs is a pleasure; Arnaud Delmontel has become our favorite
boulangerie/patisserie, although a couple of others were very good. The flat sceen TV with English language news channels was nice, but even better was the wi-fi connection for our laptop, which functioned flawlessly. We are already looking forward to our October stay.
The apartment was perfect for an extended stay of 7.5 weeks. There was plenty of room for my wife and I, and we felt totally at home. Very spaceous for what we were expecting in Paris, could easily house a small family of 4. The dining room was not only handy for meals but also served as our "office" since I was working in Paris and my wife was studying french. The location was very convenient to the Metro, shopping and restaurants. We especially liked the shopping area on Rue Abbesses.It was very quiet at night and we had no problems sleeping.
The quiet streets around the St. Georges area, placed almost equidistant from Trinite and the Grand Magasins area as well as Sacre Coeur Cathedral, offer one of the most exquisite living experiences in Paris. Held a secret for too long, this area was recently lauded in the New York Times travel section: ' Instead, head over to the Rue des Martyres, just northeast of the Galeries Lafayette department store and southwest of the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur at Monmartre. This half-mile street, mostly uphill, is the spine of a neighborhood that offers magic in a compressed time and space'.. Markets, cafes, and shopping are all within a quick stroll out the front door and a hop on the metro or a jaunt up to Monmartre will put you right into the surge and excitement that Paris has to offer.
