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)
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.

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.

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
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.
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)
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!
We stayed here for our 15th wedding anniversary and found this apartment to be a wonderful location and accommodations. The pictures posted on VRBO of the apartment were exactly what we found. We felt very safe in this quiet and upscale neighborhood. We were only a five to ten minute walk to the train station which was very convenient for a day trip to Normandy and to Givery. We used Victory Tours for Normandy to go to the D-Day beaches which was exceptional! There are many nice restaurants within a five to ten minute walk from the apartment. The major tourist sites are within walking distance or a $7.00 cab ride. Joel and Valerie were very responsive and helpful in answering any questions we had prior to our arrival. We would definitely stay here again!
Can't rave enough about this wonderful apartment ! It was beautifully decorated, in a great location, and had all modern conveniences. I usually stay in Four Seasons type properties and this was equal or superior quality decor. It was also on a very quiet street but close to great restaurants, shops , and museums. Metro stations are nearby but we mainly used UBER and the fares were usually under 10 euros to most of the places we visited. This is a true hidden gem in Paris and would definitely love to stay here again on our next trip to Paris!
Only home for two days and we miss it already.
Joe and Valerie's beautiful home is the 8th Arrondissment of Paris. We felt the it was the best Arrondissment in Paris.
The information we received prior to our arrival was very helpful.
The St. Augustin neighborhood is safe and close enough to venture out, walk to different sites or take the metro or bus line to get to where you'd like to go. Or... Just staying in and relaxing in the evening is very enjoyable.
The new Boulangerie that opened June 14, 2016 across the street, "La Boulangerie de Theirry Marx" was amazing.
Our stay, all of the amenities of this beautiful home and the convenience of a nearby shops, restaurants, markets and landmarks exceeded our expectations.
Thank you for sharing your home.
We hope one day to return again.
Lisa and Bob
Our stay was exactly what we were looking for, close to the metro, market, shops and bistros.
Christina met us, very pleasant, informative and helpful, especially with the metro! The markets are as described were close at hand. We walked to Les champs Elysées, l'arc de triomphe passing thru very nice neighbourhoods. The kitchen was very nice to have after long days visiting, or even breakfast in the morning.
We would not hesitate to rent this home again, or recommend to anyone looking for a stay in
Thank you Joel and Valerie.
Our stay here was just what we hoped for. Good location, every thing at the apartment that you need. The take-away place a few doors down has a wonderful owner , Jean,who has lived in US and gave us tips and friendly smile every day.
One drawback to the apt, however is the step entering and exiting the apartment itself. Would not suggest this apartment to anyone who has any difficulty walking. You must be sure to turn the outside light on because you could tumble down the stairs. The owner mentions this, but just beware.
The apt. Was clean, the contact person there most helpful. There is a hairdryer and also converter plugs in apt.
Also, the elevator is the smallest one ever, but at least there is an elevator.
Yes, we would recommend this apt.
We were delighted to find that the apartment was exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is immaculate and has all you will need to enjoy your stay in Paris. We were there for 2 full weeks and thoroughly enjoyed making our own breakfasts and most dinners in the fully-equipped kitchen. We usually had large lunches out while touring and it was pleasant to come back late and be able to fix a small dinner and not have to go back out to a restaurant. Access to the Metro and the train station was perfect for all the places we visited in Paris as well as those outside of the city. Shops, restaurants and a very convenient store with all the groceries you will need are within a few minutes walk. The closest patisserie is less than a 5 minute walk and a trek we made often!
We appreciated the washer/dryer combo in the apartment, having such a comfortable bed after very long days on our feet and that the building had an elevator. Dealing with Joel was a pleasure and we had all our questions answered and enjoyed the information on each appliance and suggestions for our stay that he provided. The only tip we wish to share is when you return after dark to the building there are light switches just inside the door to the courtyard on the right-hand side that will turn on the coach lights in the courtyard and the entry by the elevator.
You will be able to live life like a Parisian even if just for a short while! Enjoy...
