The apartment is located in the 2nd arrondissement on rue Poissonnière, with numerous shops, markets, cafes and restaurants and the Grand Rex Cinema nearby.

For those who prefer a Paris apartment experience to a hotel, this is a great place to be.. Convenient to public transportation, neighborhood markets and restaurants, this is as close to being a Parisian as one can be for a week or a month. In addition, with interesting artwork, the place has character. The owner lives here part, of the year which helps to maintain the warmth and comfortable feeling of a home. It is an elegant and romantic space..
The apartment is clean, comfortable, and well provisioned. The owners are easy to work with and accommodating.
We are a retired American/French couple, deeply involved in the arts, multilingual and multicultural. We divide our time between France and the United States. Cities are a passion for us and a constant source of discovery.
Robert Fitzpatrick purchased this apartment in 2012
Over the years we have lived in five different neighborhoods in Paris, and this is our favorite. We did ca total renovation in 2012. We bought this property because it is on the top floor of the building, with lots of light, gorgeous views, private and totally quiet. We also liked the fact that there are 5 different neighborhoods within easy walking distance, and a fantastic array of restaurants, cafes (even Starbucks), concert halls, museums and theaters nearby. As movie buffs we also liked that the Rex Cinema is a complete multiplex including the largest cinema (2800 places) in Europe.
great landlords, great neighbors
I have used VRBO many times in Paris and this is the finest apartment I have found....for someone who is
passionate about art and design, you will feel like you are home....The owners have acquired their impressive
collection of photography on travels all over the world and it shows...it is impressive and very thought
provoking.... The overall layout if thoughtful and lives well, and the views over Paris with the Eiffel Tower
in view is incomparable.... I highly recommend staying here.....Ten stars at least!!!!!!
I had the most comfortable stay in this beautifully appointed apartment. It has all the comforts of home (a fully equipped kitchen, fantastic sound system, dishwasher etc) which made it sad for me to leave at the end of the fortnight. The owners are also fantastic and I was very fortunate to be able to arrange for a meet up as Bob was coincidentally in Paris towards the end of my stay. The other reviews have said it all - convenience to metro stops, proximity to the wonderful rue Montorgueil, terrific view of the Eiffel Tower. In fact there is actually more art work in the apartment now than shown on the photos! The location on the 7th floor also made the apartment bright and airy. Highly recommend this apartment without any hesitation.
We loved our stay here! The descriptions and photos were accurate, the 8th floor location and views were as advertised, it was large enough to work great for 3 adults and one child (one mom and kid sharing the sofa bed). Close to a metro stop, close to the pedestrian rue Montorguiel for easy shopping and dining. Washer and dryer a big plus, and all amenities provided with useful instructions. Within walking distance of Pont Neuf and the Seine. We hope to return some other time and highly recommend this one.
This was my second time staying at this tasteful and beautiful apartment. Interior is spacious and an artistic blend of artwork. I love the 2nd Arrondissement because you are with Parisians who are more than helpful, friendly and kind. Neighborhood is perfectly located and allows total independence. I've met several of the tenants and we renewed friendships. I totally discovered the 2nd Arrondissement and all of its wonderful things to do. Owner's always a delight and always so helpful. From this apartment you can walk to most tourist locations and the Metro is easy to travel on. I would recommend this apartment with no hesitation. Beautiful views, bright and airy. Well equipped and could not ask for anything more.
Bob and Sylvie are the absolute best.
My wife and I spent 8 days in Paris for my 65th at this lovely place in the 2nd arrondissement which is within walking distance of many of the most popular spots. We really never used the Metro as it was so much fun to walk around seeing so much while you were on your way to your destination. Apt is fully equipped with excellent directions for the use of all items. It was very quiet and sleep was not a problem I will call for a reservation the next time we go to Paris. Thanks Bob and Sylvie.
Upon arrival to apartment from airport you first note beauty of art deco building. Elevators are classical and romantic. Apartment itself is large, gorgeous, and well-appointed with a wonderul kitchen and a very comfy sofa bed. Other than some basic groceries nothing else was needed. The toilet area is separate from shower/tub making it convenient for 2 or more to get ready at same time. Location very convenient to everything. Metro a hop, skip and a jump away. After longs days of sightseeing the quietness and comforts were more than appreciated. View at night is spectacular thanks to the many windows, watching the Eiffel Tower sparkling at night is beautiful. The owner's art collection is amazing. Owner's are the absolute best, full of personality and always helpful. This was a girl's week and it was everything and more. Anyone in love with Paris and searching for a place to stay to be among Parisians this apartment is a must stay. For a first time visitor you will be wowed!
Located in the center of Paris, immediately proximate to great public transportation, fantastic restaurants, markets, museums, opera and live theater all within easy walking distance. Not to be missed: the pedestrian quarter rue Montorgeuil, Centre Pompidou, the Louvre, and people watching on the terrace of any cafe.
