If you want to discover Paris on foot, this is the place to be. Our beautiful architect-designed apartment lies in the very heart of Paris at Chatelet in the first arrondissement. Located on the top floor of an 18th -C listed building on a quiet, leafy street opposite Theatre de Paris and one of the city's most romantic flower markets. A ten minute stroll in any direction takes you to famous landmarks including the Seine, Ile de Cite, Centre Pompidou and the Louvre. A bright and airy 'artist's garret' with stunning views, our apartment has been simply modernised whilst retaining its historic features. The living area has a South facing balcony, an inviting sofa area, well-equipped with books, satellite TV, DVDs and CDs, Wi-Fi. We often stay ourselves and love to gather around our big oak dining table. You will enjoy playing chef in the well equipped kitchen and the view of the twinkling river at night certainly takes the edge off the washing up! The apartment is a home from home for us and we hope for you too.
We are an Anglo American Academic family who live in London but met at Stanford as Grad students. We have spent sabbaticals in the States and Paris and have by now grown to a family of 5 duagters and 11 Grandchildren--all of whom have spent some time in Paris and in this apartment. So we share it with you as house guests- albeit paying- but we leave everything ready for the stay of friends , not commercial tenants.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004
It is surrounded by beautiful buildings and the history of Paris envelopes you
in every direction. It is quiet, comfortable and easy to live in. The neighbourhood is very safe and the little local restaurants excellent. A taxi stand, the metro and buses are all within a block: the River Boat is further away- two blocks at Pont
All rooms face South with French windows and small balconies.
We are not overlooked and sky lights n the bathroom and hall help fill the apartment with light. We have architects in the family so you will find a lot of thought has gone into the design and the details.
Our favourite view is watching the boats on the Seine from the kitchen sink, but the views of Saint Chapelle and Hotel de Ville are also hard to beat.
Most of all, coming to our apartment allows us to become Paris residents with the freedom to construct a daily routine according to whim without restriction but with all essentials laid on.
My wife, her best friend, and I spent 2 weeks in Paris at this apartment in August. The apartment was wonderfully located one block from the Seine, 10 minutes from the Louvre, Ste. Chappelle, and Notre Dame and around the corner from a great boulangerie and three great restaurants. There are nearby metro and RER stops to take you to Versailles, D'Orsay, and other sites. So the location is great!! The apartment itself was really fine. Balconies overlook the street and there is a view of the Seine (albiet limited). The two bedrooms are reasonably sized and the beds large enough for two adults. The bathroom has a very good shower and a washing machine. The living room is large and has a sofa bed that a friend of mine used for three nights, so in theory the apartment could accommodate 5 people though it would be a bit crowded given one bathroom. The kitchen was fine with a fridge, microwave/convection oven, and all you need to cook meals though we usually went out for dinner and tended to relax with afternoon wine/cheese at home. The free wireless was a nice bonus as was the ability to call home to the states for free. The CD player worked fine. The tv didn't work but we didn't bother calling about it since it didn't really matter to us. The apartment is on the sixth floor so the walk up each day is a good work-out but there is a TINY elevator if you have bags, groceries, etc. We carried our bicycles up the 6 fligts since they couldn't fit in the elevator. We had friends over for dinner one nite who were renting another apartment in Paris and they just loved our place!! We would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a clean, well located, and comfortable apartment for a Paris visit and would certainly stay here again when we return.
Steeped in history, with buildings from the 18th and 19thC on one side and the Theatre Musical de Paris on the other, we are just one block north of the Quai Megisserie which runs across the Seine with bookstalls and flower markets. Place Chatelet with the gilded victory atop a column and surrounding fountains has claim to be the centre of Paris. A 10 min walk South takes you across the bridge to the Ile de Cite and Notre Dame. To the East, the Hotel de Ville; to the North, Centre Pompidou, to the West, the Louvre. We are at the crossroads of all transport: Metro, RER, buses and vélib (street bikes). If, like us, you are passionate about food then this is a great part of the city to base yourself in. One of the country's oldest and most loved gourmet food markets on rue Montorgueil is a short walk away, whilst below our apartment is one of the best boulangeries in Paris. Shopping, sightseeing, cultural entertainments and, of course, great and varied places to eat are within easy reach.
Other Activities: Shopping, museums, theatres, cinemas, antiques, fitness centre.
