Beautiful, family-ready space in the historical heart of Paris!

About the property

Apt., 2 Queen + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (4-6) overlooking Tuilierie Gardens.

The 100m2 apartment is located on the 'Rue de Rivoli' (Metro Concorde line #1) in a 19th century building.

It's the essence of the heart of the 'City of Light', On the corner of the famous 'Place de la Concorde', and close to the 'Champs Elysees'. One minute to the 'Rue Royale' and the 'Rue Saint Honore', the apartment faces the 'Tuileries garden' (the “Central Park” of Paris) and is to the 'Musee d'Orsay'. A 10-minute walk to the 'Seine River'. Two minutes from the 'Place Vendome' in the high-fashion district, home of the most prestigious jewelry stores in the world (Van Cleef and Arpel, Maubusson, Cartier, Rolex, Patek Philipp, etc...) and the 'Ritz Hotel'. It's easy to walk or catch the Metro to anything you could possibly want to see in Paris!

For the gourmet lover - a visit to 'Fauchon Place de la Madeleine' is a must. Not to mention the three star Michelin restaurant 'Le Meurice' or the 'Carre des Feulliants' down the street.

It was a comfortable apartment in a fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location for a week long holiday in Paris. It is located in a lovely building easily walkable to sights. There is an easily accessible metro stop across the street. The practical information supplied by the owner was helpful. The only downside is the spotty internet around the apartment.

Perfect spot and lovely, character-filled home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was precisely as advertised, and could not have been better located. Easy walks to great restaurants, museums, parks, and the metro. Beautiful exposed beams in throughout the property and a quiet garden view -despite its location on a main thoroughfare gave the apartment a wonderful, homey feel.

The flat was equipped with everything advertised, and everything worked properly except for a small problem with the hot water heater. When called, someone came out promptly to fix it. The owners were also easy to reach, and provided some details about the flat prior to our arrival which we found helpful. They were easy to work with, and I'd highly recommend this property.

Other reviews took issue with the bathroom arrangement, and overall sense of privacy. The layout worked very well for our family, but we were traveling with three adults and three small children, so privacy may have been less of an issue than for others. Notwithstanding, we were willing to trade a small degree of privacy for the location, and were quite happy with our decision.

Amazing location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful French apartment! The ambiance of old French furniture was charming and yet the appliances and bathrooms were modern and clean. The location of this apartment/ VRBO, right across from the Tuileries and the Place de la Concorde, allowed us to easily walk and enjoy the amazing French marvels of the Louvre, Place Vendome, and the Tuileries Gardens. The neighborhood restaurants had great food and we even enjoyed a Saturday morning market in close proximity and took our purchases to eat near the Jeu de Paume and just people watched. It made our time more relaxing after touring the other sites in Paris. The view of the Eiffel Tower and the obelisk in the Place de la Concorde is one that is spectacular from a distance.

Great location...but not comfortable

  • 2 of 5

The good stuff: the location is great. The apartment was clean. The bathroom situation would not be okay for two couples. But the bathrooms were newly upgraded and we made it work. We walked the 60 stairs to the apartment. That allowed an extra pastry.

The not so good stuff: no wifi. Beds weren't comfortable. The living room furniture was old. The springs were gone from all the furniture. And the chairs and sofa felt dirty. The newest piece was the 80s coffee table. The television only had French stations. (Yes, I know we were in Paris) It would have been nice to have CNN or Bloomberg.

Owner's Response: Hi Carol- I'm so sorry to hear you weren't comfortable! We purchased new beds and bedding in November 2016 so that's disappointing. The bathroom situation has been resolved with a curtain between the washroom and bathroom areas, as well as one in the back bedroom; you're right that it tends to be an apartment that works best for families. And I know that you weren't able to contact us or our housekeeper because of the wifi, but I wish you could have! That is a very easy fix we could've had up and running quickly for you; it's so nice to have that while traveling. I hope you did enjoy the location and the ambience of a small family apartment in the heart of Paris. Thank you for being our guests!

Fantastic Location & Wonderful Hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fantastic!!! The hosts were remarkable. My team and I would definitely be back next season. Location cannot get any better. Ideal for families as well as for a group of friends coming to Paris. JP & his wife are wonderful people. Very helpful and sincere.

Couldn't have been more perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely poured over every available property listing in Paris and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. Our family of 6 stayed for 8 days over the Christmas holidays and this apartment was absolutely perfect for us. Honestly I can't believe everything it offered at a price no more than a hotel room. I'm not one to write reviews but we were so happy with it I would like to help other travelers make this overwhelming choice!

The location can not be beat -- it is less than a 10 minute walk to the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay , Champs Elysees, and steps away from the Tuileries Garden, shopping, places to eat. In addition the Concorde metro stop is literally five steps from the exterior door. Concorde has THREE lines running through it making it an incredibly quick and easy trip to anywhere in the city. All of this, and the apartment is absolutely quiet inside. We couldn't hear any street noise at all, day or night.

Inside it was incredibly roomy. The pictures do not give justice to how large it was. There was a nice table that sat 6 of us comfortably to enjoy all the tasty things we would purchase during the day. The washer and dryer were SO convenient. We only brought a few changes of clothes and were able to wash all our clothes each night and dry them in the morning. It was a bit odd having openings between the bathrooms, but like another reviewer recommended we used one of the many umbrellas that were provided to cover them and didn't find them troublesome. I loved that it looked very French.

I couldn't believe what an incredible view the apartment had at this price. My littlest one told me if he woke up in the middle of the night he would go over to the window to see the Eiffel Tower still there. My kids listed being able to see the Eiffel Tower as one of their favorite parts of the vacation.

The owners of this apartment were incredibly kind and great to work with. The instructions they sent us were incredibly thorough and covered every questions we possibly could have had, along with contact info for their local staff.

I have all ready recommended this apartment to several of my friends. Bon Voyage!
