Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath w/ Separate Powder Room (Sleeps 2)

WELCOME to your Parisian home away from home! Perfect for business travelers and vacationers!

Ideally located in the heart of the City of Lights, steps away from the right bank’s world-renowned monuments and the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore’s fashion shops, your gorgeous apartment awaits.

Built in the late 1800s in the Haussmann style, completely renovated in 2006 and again in 2016, your spacious, one-bedroom pied-a-terre sparkles with beautiful south, east, and west-facing views of Paris rooftops and streetscape from its rare bay window.

Decorated by Valerie DeRoy Interiors, LLC, each airy room is a tribute to elegant yet comfortable Parisian living. (700 Square Feet: Foyer, Foyer Walk-In Closet, Kitchen, Powder Room, Living/Dining Room, Bedroom, Bathroom, Laundry Room)

DESCRIPTION:

With natural sunlight cascading into each room thanks to its south-facing windows, your air-conditioned 4th floor Parisian pied-a-terre, accessible by stairs or by elevator, exudes warmth and airiness.

The living and dining room, showcasing original and unusual Empire ceiling moldings as well as point-de-hongrie hardwood floors, is the perfect room in which to unwind after a busy day spent sightseeing the marvels of Paris: Dock your iPod in the Bose SoundDock Digital Music System, pour yourself a glass of wine, and experience Paris living the way well-heeled Parisians do.

The large bedroom, featuring original and intricately carved ceiling moldings as well as plush carpeting and a king-size bed, is a haven designed for relaxation and rejuvenation after a night on the town. Its muted colors, soft fabrics, and hushed lighting make it the perfect after dark Parisian sanctuary.

The kitchen, with granite countertops, glazed cabinets, and a full complement of top-of-the-line stainless steel Miele appliances, manages to be both efficient and elegant. The adjoining powder room is ideally situated, allowing easy access to you and your cocktail guests.

The bathroom, with its white carrara marble floor and wall tiles, retro plumbing fixtures and oversized porcelain bathtub, may make you want to soak forever.

Other amenities include:

* 32 inch flat panel television with over 150 channels (including CNN International, Bloomberg, CNBC Europe, etc.)

* Wireless internet access

* Telephone

* DVD player

* Dishwasher, microwave, conventional oven, ceramic glass cook top, washer/dryer

* Hairdryer, plush towels, high thread count bed linens

* Air Conditioning

NEIGHBORHOOD:

Located in the heart of the 8th arrondissement, your apartment is a stroll away from the right bank’s most famous historical places and monuments: les Champs-Elysees, la place de la Concorde, la place de la Madeleine, l’Opera, la place Vendome, les Tuileries gardens, le Louvre museum, le Palais Royal, le Petit Palais and le Grand Palais. Le Parc Monceau, surrounded by 19th century Hotels Particuliers and one of Paris' most elegant parks, is only a few short blocks away.

For shopping, the high fashion shops of la rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore are just mere minutes away, as are les Grands Magasins, Paris’ quintessential department stores. At the Marche Treilhard, a couple of blocks away, a cornucopia of French delicacies await: here you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, cheese from the cheese shop, pastries from the patisserie, fish from the fishmonger, and meat from the butcher. For everyday items, the Monoprix supermarket is also but a couple of blocks away.

For a true French market experience, head to the Levis market on the rue de Levis, a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The Levis market is open daily, weekends included. Go there in the mornings for a deeper selection of typical French foods and beverages. We highly recommend you walk the Levis market at least once during your stay, as it is a feast for the eyes.

If you want food to match your new Armani outfit, take a walk to la Madeleine and browse the shelves of Fauchon or Hediard, Paris’ top luxury food emporiums. If sweets are what you crave, try Laduree on the rue Royale, maker of Paris’ finest macaroons.

For explorations further a field, the Miromesnil and Saint-Augustin Metro Stations are just a few steps away (2-4 minutes), as are direct bus routes to all parts of the city.

About Joel

My wife and I spend about 4 weeks a year in our Paris apartment, and consider it our home away from home. It is a true gem which we hope you will enjoy as much as we do!

Joel purchased this condo in 2006

Why Joel chose 8th Arrondissement Champs Elysees

My wife being from Paris and my in-laws living there, we decided to purchase this property to be able to visit with them as often as possible. We settled on this arrondissement because of its rich history, easy walking distance to all of the right bank's major monuments, its residential feel and convenient access to the city's subway, bus lines and CDG airport. An added attraction is that Valerie's family live around the corner from us.

What makes this condo unique

We chose to purchase this particular apartment for multiple reasons: the high ceilings, the original parquet floors, plaster moldings, fireplace and mirrors, the view from its unique bay window, the building's enhanced security thanks to its own caretaker or what Parisians call a 'gardienne', and close proximity to public transportation and taxi stands.

An added benefit are the Presidential Palace and Interior Ministry buildings around the corner ensuring police patrol our neighborhood streets 24 hours a day on their mission to protect France's most important politicians. This can be very reassuring when walking back from one of our wonderful local restaurants at 1:00 am! (and helpful when in need of directions)

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was a true gem and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We could not believe how nice and quaint the apartment and building was. It was a dream come true for my wife. We had an amazing time and will cherish it for a lifetime. It was the storybook honeymoon for us and we appreciate your accommodations and help and service to us. We already miss the couch and balcony window, we spent many moments there enjoying the Paris views in between our visits to the sites. Hopefully someday, we can visit again. We will pass the word around to friends alike that your apartment was a great place to enjoy the real Parisian experience!

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just finished a one week stay in this lovely apartment. It is just as nice as in the photos. Well equipped and the owners left the best instructions for using the appliances that I have ever seen. Very quiet with the windows closed. AC works very well. Tiny elevator. Just barely fits two people but fast and efficient

The property manager, Cristina, is on site and very helpful. Apartment is in a good location for sighteeing and convenient to many small shops and restaurants. For quick healthy delicious food there is a shop a few doors down called "Which One" that we liked. Owner was a chef in New York before returning to Paris to open this cafe. I can highly recommend this rental for anyone who prefers apartments to hotels when traveling.

Perfect Parisian Flat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Just Perfect! The flat is just as described and the photos are an outstanding representation of this lovely home away from home.

The flat is very "Parisian" and really added to our overall Paris experience. Located close to transportation and a taxi stand with good restaurants and grocer nearby.

Amenities were sufficient, bed very comfortable, flat very clean. Lovely sitting room, great bathroom. Plenty of drawer and closet space.

Check in was quick and easy even though we were held up by traffic and arrived later than planned. Elevator straight up to apartment. May take a couple of trips as it's a very small European type lift. Only holds 2 adults at a time or one adult and luggage. Stairs are also readily available.

Highly recommend, we would love to return one day!!!

WONDERFUL PARIS EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in this "chic , comfortable and elegant " Paris apartment . From the decor to the friendly neighborhood this stay was everything we imagined . Thank you for all of your recommendations and thorough directions for the accommodations , we felt right at home.

For a true Paris experience in a luxury apartment with an affordable price I would stay here for a month if I had the time off.

Merci! Joel and Valerie

Lovely apartment in great neighborhood inside the city

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment for the week I was working in Paris. It was perfect! It was a 2 block walk to the metro, very close to grocery shops, restaurants, bakeries - everything you need at your fingertips. The apartment has been remodeled - although they left the original incredibly beautiful hardwood floors - and is nicely furnished with very comfortable living room furniture and a wonderfully comfortable bed. It was great to come home at night, fix myself something to eat, and then set up my computer at the dining room table. The instructions on how to run the appliances were the best I've ever seen. The owners offer suggestions for interesting places to visit, shop, and eat. They recommended going to a new bakery at the corner of Boulevard Haussman and rue d'Argenson where I had one of the best chocolate soufflé cakes I've ever eaten. Don't miss the Levis Market they recommend. Enjoy your stay!

Christmas in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week over the Christmas holidays in this beautiful Parisian apartment celebrating our wedding anniversary. The charming 'guardienne' Christina met us as scheduled and got us settled in. The apartment was as described, very stylish, and perfect for two people. The apartment is in a great location for exploring Paris with many popular areas in walking distance, yet is located on a quiet street to allow for a restful night's sleep. The immediate neighborhood has some wonderful boulangeries for breakfast goodies and sandwiches. We did not try the local restaurants but there seemed to be a great choice nearby. We will certainly stay here again on our next trip to the City of Lights. Do not hesitate to book this accommodation, you will not be disappointed.

A beautiful, comfortable apartment in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is gorgeous: the result of being beautifully renovated by the interior designer/owner. The rooms are large and apparently carved out of the larger apartment next door. They have all the details of old Paris apartments: high ceilings with elaborate plaster work, tall double doors to each room, and restored herring-bone hardwood floors. The renovation has been sensitively done and includes a small but incredibly well-stocked and laid out kitchen, a luxurious bath and separate toilet, a comfortable bed with wonderful linens and plenty of storage for clothes. The apartment is perfect for two adults.

The neighborhood has a boulangerie (right across the street), a charming bistro, also right across the street, a nearby street of traditional fruit and vegetable vendors and a butcher; nearby is one of Paris' charming street markets and around the corner are several other nice bistros and brassersies, not to mention some of Paris' best upscale dining. Les Grands Magasins (Gallerie Lafayette and Au Printemps) are a short walk, as is the Champs Elysées. Two metro stops are a couple of short blocks.

We would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
