Overview

1st Arrondissement Louvre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 4

This is a light and spacious one bedroom luxury apartment in the first arrondissement, the very center of Paris. Located on the 5th floor of a 1860 Haussmann building on a quiet, tree-lined avenue only steps from the banks of the Seine and minutes from Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Marais District or the Latin Quarter. The Chatelet metro station is a block away.

The Victoria apartment is very centrally located; almost in the exact geographic center of Paris. It is on a small side street one block from the Chatelet plaza with its beautiful fountain. The apartment is also one block from the quay along the Seine and adjacent to the transportation apex of the metro and bus network for Paris. There are many busses and the metro is just at the end of the block. From this location you can literally walk to the following destinations: - Ile de la Cite (the original site of Paris) and Place Dauphine - Notre Dame Cathedral and La Chapelle - The Louvre - The historic 17 Century Maris district and the Pompidou center - The Ile Saint Louis - The Place Saint Michel on the Left bank and the Latin Quarter and the Sorbonne - The Saint Germain des Pres district

The main metro line at Chatelet is line 1 and it runs directly to the Champs Elysees, Arch de Triumph, the Place de la Concorde, and the les Tuileries in one direction and the Place de la Bastille and the eastern side of the Marais district in the other direction. There is also a taxi stand just at the end of the block at the fountain/plaza.

Originally a typical Beaux Arts style apartment, the recent renovation and contemporary furnishings have added a modern twist to the elegant decor. Through two doors equipped with electronic card readers, you enter into the renovated historic hallway with access to the elevator; a short set of steps leads from the elevator to the apartment.

The large and impressive living room has high ceilings and two tall double-glazed windows (with black-out curtains) giving attractive wide views of the sky and street below. The classic feel of the original marble fireplace and over-mantle mirror is contrasted with the modern - and very comfortable - queen size sofa bed.

The bedroom is pleasant and light, also with two tall windows and black-out curtains. It has its own original polished marble fireplace and a very generous amount of built in wardrobe space. There is a separate flat screen television. The bed is queen size with a deep but firm mattress. Bed linens and towels are of the finest quality and there is an iPod player on the mantleplace.

The dining room features large windows as well and is contiguous with the kitchen but can be completely separated by an ingenious system of 'pocket doors' which slide away completely when not needed. The elegant Gustavian dining room table will seat four.

In the Swedish style kitchen there is a catalytic oven, vitroceramic stove with four hot plates, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a very effective exhaust hood. All cooking utensils and other small appliances are top quality.

The large bathroom has a full size shower, basin, designer toilet and bidet, as well as a mirrored cabinet with power outlet. (A hairdryer and bathroom radio are provided.) A washer and separate dryer are located in a built-in cupboard (instructions are in English).

The apartment is equipped with fax and answering machine and two Ethernet DSL internet connection outlets and Wi-Fi.

Two LCD televisions plus cable decoders with 150 channels including CNN and BBC, a DVD player and a separate CD and radio sound systems complete the entertainment lineup.

In the hall closet, as well as space for baggage storage, there is a cyclonic HEPA vacuum cleaner, steam iron and ironing board plus a personal safe. The apartment has smoke alarms and a fire extinguisher.

SPECIAL NOTE: The elevator access is to alternate floors. There are ten steps to walk up from the elevator landing to the apartment if you press #4 or you can walk down if you press #6.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, smooth check in, beautiful apartment. We stayed here with our two teenaged children and loved every minute of our stay. This apartment is clean, well-stocked for meals at home and nicely appointed. Excellent linens, and nice to have a washer and dryer. Delicious bakery next door, and nice restaurants nearby.

Very pleased

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I were very pleased with the apartment on avenue Victoria. It was clean and had every thing that we needed for our one week stay in June. The kitchen was completely equipped for a small lunch to a full course dinner. The bed was very comfortable and with plenty of closet space for two people. The bathroom had a good shower and all else that was necessary for our stay. The washer and dryer enabled us to maintain clean clothes though the entire trip but the television in the bedroom was perfect. I was able to follow the European football 2016 in the comfort of my bed.

The location of the apartment was something we worried about before coming to Paris. We thought it might be inconvenient to the major attractions that we wanted to see. When we arrived and saw how easy it to get the metro and the buses that were one block away we decided that this was a perfect location.

Although it rained for most of the time we spent in Paris t

What you see is what you get.

  • 5 of 5

There were no surprises with this apartment. Everything said about it was true and the pictures were accurate. It was very clean and well equipped. The bed and pillows made for a good nights sleep, the shower was perfect and the kitchen had everything we needed. The location was central so it was easy to get around to the sites. We were very pleased with this apartment.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located. Conveniences (grocers, bistros, pastry shop, taxi stand, etc.) are located on the same block. Museums, gardens, historic sights and markets are all within a short walk. And most importantly it is so comfortable and beautifully furnished it is a delight to spend time in the apartment. The apt is clean and tastefully decorated. It has a well stocked kitchen and wonderful bath and bed linens. The rental process is easy and the manager gave us the key and a personal review of the apt. Everything about our stay was greatly appreciated.

My husband I highly recommend this apt.

Fabulous Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our most recent stay in Paris. We had 9 romantic nights booked and everything went very smoothly. Check in was easy! The apartment is lovely. I loved the updated kitchen and bathroom. It is very spacious for two people. The bed was comfortable and everything was very clean.

I like this area because it is very close to many museums and parks. There are some very good restaurants right across the street! A food store is close by as well as the metro.

I would definitely stay here again!
