Few are those who have the luxury of walking out the door in the morning directly on the Esplanade des Invalides, the vast lawn between the shining golden dome of the Invalides and Pont Alexandre III, one of the most famous bridges in Paris.
Few are those who have the luxury of walking out the door in the morning directly on the Esplanade des Invalides, the vast lawn between the shining golden dome of the Invalides and Pont Alexandre III, one of the most famous bridges in Paris. This is where you would expect a luxury hotel, but here instead is your chance to stay in a unusual three-level apartment, peacefully located far from the streetfront. This is fantastic opportunity for families, because in even though there is only one bedroom and a sofabed in the living room, there is plenty of space elsewhere in the apartment for airbeds (provided on request).
The layout of the apartment is unusual. You enter the apartment on the ground floor which is set several steps up from the ground level. This level offers the living room, bathroom, and WC. The next level down is a kitchen and dining room, slightly beneath the ground level, but well lit by a large window.
The lowest level is a bedroom, and an additional 100 square foot space that services as a wardrobe and storage.
There is also a small outdoor space accessible from the kitchen if you are able to climb through the window (it does sound quirky, but that's the way it is).
The location is ideal for a first or return trip to Paris, because the most visited attractions are within walking distance (Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysée, Saint-Germain des Près, Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre). All other areas of interest are easily accessible on the RER or Metro, both of which are literally around the corner from the apartment.
You will experience the best of Parisian local life around the corner on rue Saint-Dominique, with the best Paris has to offer in terms of shops and restaurants.
You have access to the entire apartment.
Do not hesitate if you need any help to plan your stay in Paris!
On the left bank of Paris, a few steps away from the Seine river, this residential area and – logically – very quiet, is the area of big, large and majestic avenues with heavy doors hiding embassies and ministries, and of vast, green and airy esplanades. But, ideal place to stay to roam across Paris, the neighbourhood especially overflows with touristic places and museums : between the Invalides and its Museum of the Army, the Eiffel Tower that does not need to be introduced any more, the Grand Palais and its temporary exhibitions to book many months in advance (but they're worth the wait !), the Museum of Quai Branly and its collection from all over the world, the Rodin Museum and its numerous sculptures, and many other places, your appetite for culture and arts will be satisfied !
For touristic places a bit further, no worry, the area is very well connected but the metro, the bus and the RER.
Anyway, I'm not forgetting your appetite for good food and wine (one does not come to Paris by accident !) and trust me, the 7th arrondissement overflows with excellent gastronomic restaurants with intoxicating wine cellars... Without hesitation, I recommend to you to try the experience of a starred chef, Jean-François Piège, chef of the wordly famous Crillon, who offers in his Brasserie Thoumieux an excellent price-quality ratio with no less than the view on the Eiffel Tower ! Or the Pottoka, where the chef Sébastien Gravé honours his birth region, the Pays basque, with refined and surprising dishes. Rush there, you won't be disappointed ! It's, with no doubt, my favourite in the neighbourhood.
