About rosemary and Olivier lallouette

classical singer

rosemary and Olivier lallouette purchased this apartment in 2004

Why rosemary and Olivier lallouette chose Charing Cross

This flat is in a prime location, is spacious and comfortable and stands apart from the 'conversion' flats so often found in central London. The living area is a real 'salon' with high ceilings and beautiful moulding works on both the walls and ceiling. It is a luxurious space.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic location. It is a little like spending a holiday with all the home comforts and feeling a little grand!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved being in your lovely apt. Will be back as often as the bank balance affords! Cheers Rosemary.

Great location, beautiful apartment

  • 4 out of 5
I love this apartment. It is well-located, comfortable, gorgeous, owned and managed by nice people -- in short, it has a lot going for it. Right now I doubt that I will stay anywhere else in London. I could reconsider, though, if the street noise in the evening continues at the level it was on my last stay. Honestly, I don't know whether the windows can be further soundproofed but if they can, they really should be. Apart from the sound of late-night rowdies, loud enough to wake me from deep sleep, this place is truly wonderful.

My wife & I stayed 4 nights & the apartment topped off a brief but wonderful stay in London.
The location is just perfect being in a quiet street only metres from Tradalgar Square, St Martin's in the Field, Charing Cross & Embankment stations & the Thames.
The apartment is beautiful, well set up & very comfortable.
We will be back & have recommended it to family & friends.

Nice apartment

  • 4 out of 5
It is a lovely apartment. If you like historical buildings with character, this is the place.
PROS: great location, super close to the Charing Cross station, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, Strand Street (main street), #9 bus to Harrod's, wifi, fully equipped kitchen. There is a bunk bed in the living room where it's quieter.
CONS: lighting wasn't bright enough for us, the bedroom is above a pub and the other half of the pub is across the alley. It does get noisy but if you're doing the sites all day, you're so tired, you fall asleep. The pub is closed on Wednesdays and Sundays aren't so bad.

Elegance in the most perfect location!

  • 5 out of 5
We planned our London escape from our normal lives to be one of high style, gastronomy, culture, art, history, and science. From my first glance at the grand piano, high and ornately molded ceilings and elegance of Rosemary’s flat, this had to be our place for the week--especially since this Georgian gem was at THE CENTRAL location of our adventures. It is up one interior flight of stairs. The flat enjoys high end luxuries. The front room is large and elegant while the kitchen is tiny and functional. This I used to great advantage to attend the annual Taste of London and bring home food goodies which could be heated in the oven. There is a coop store with lovely salads, veggies, and cheeses right at the end of the street in addition to many, many eateries nearby. The internet was peppy and permitted last minute bookings and searching for directions. The laundry was certainly appreciated as we left with everything ready for our hike on the Coastal Path of Wales. Note: Rosemary is originally from Wales.
The historical elegance of the Craven St. flat welcomed us after attending a candle-light concert of Handle and Mozart at St. Martin’s in the Field’s and inspired us to participate in the Big Sing at the Royal Opera House. Knowing that Rosemary was a highly accomplished opera star gave the flat an even more distinguished aura. Our opera director was directing the boy’s choir when we attended Sunday service at Westminster Abbey. On other evenings we saw plays and participated in the side-splitting Fawlty Towers Dinner--every event was “just around the corner and down the block.” The flat’s location encouraged us to get out and take advantage of London’s Covent Garden and West End night life. We loved never having to take a taxi home. The location was so perfect—we could visit a museum or wander then come “home” and get ready for the next event. Having a resting spot for an hour or so provided quick recharging for more exploration. One could pop out for a meal, drink, lecture, play and pop home and out again with little effort.
The pub just below the bedroom was energetically noisy the night we arrived—it was a perfect summer evening and throngs gathered to celebrate outside the pub. I found with the double windows in the bedroom and a set of ear plugs that this was not a major problem. All other evenings there were no issues and we visited the pub and enjoyed the tales of Ben Frankin’s partaking the brew here. Thanks Rosemary!

Loved the Apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
Everything describing this apartment is 100% accurate! The location is next door to the very interesting Benjamin Franklin museum which shows one what the original 18th century building interior looks like before restoration. Nearby are two Underground Stations, the Thames, Trafalgar Square, museums, shopping, restaurants, etc. Everything was so easy to get to from this location! The most wonderful home-cooked, very reasonably priced meals can also be found nearby at the Cafe in the Crypt (St Martin-in-the-Fields) Trafalgar Square. It was very hard leaving this most elegant, comfortable "home away from home" at the end of a week's stay!

Elegant London flat

  • 5 out of 5
This wonderful apartment more than lived up to the great reviews. I was apprehensive about being next door to Charing Cross Station and above a pub, but was pleasantly surprised by this peaceful, residential street. Turn onto it from the Strand and you are in another world. Enter the apartment and you will find a beautiful restored space with its 1730 architectural details intact. Double-glazing plus 11 pm pub closing time meant no
problem with noise. It is a marvelous base from which to explore London. The apartment is clean and well equipped. Rosemary, the owner, is easy to work with and responded quickly to all of my questions. I recommend the apartment highly and hope to return.
