This is a 55 sq meter open-space in a typical Haussmannian historic building (18th century) on the first floor. Situated in the 2°Arrondissement, in the very center of the 'snail'! (central Arrondissements in Paris are represented in a snail). The apartment has been recently and finely restored but preserves the fascination of the unforgettable 'belle époque'. The floor and the ceiling are authentic and antique like several pieces of furniture. Old beams, old parquet and logical living design and amenities create charm and space that feel good and are just plain fun to live in.
This big studio is ideal for modern life style. Loft living is different: 'a loft is open space, and creative use of that space that invites people to arrange things to suit their personal lifestyle and taste'. The great part is that the owner/guest decides the use-of-space, not the builder!
The location is really interesting because you are very in a walking distance to the main attractions in Paris (one minute from Opera Theatre, five minutes from Place Vendome, eight minutes from Madeleine Square, ten minutes from Louvre Palais, twelve minutes from Montergeuil, etc). This is a lively area to stay in, with splendid buildings, Grand Boulevards and places such as the Palais Royal, Madeleine surrounded by gardens and restaurants, the 'Bourse' stock exchange, the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens. The rue St Honoré runs through the middle of the first arrondissement with small boutiques from end to end as far as 'Chatelet Les Halles' a popular tourist attraction where you will find Montergueil market .
The Capital of fashion, food, art, music, culture, and history is waiting for you! You are only a few steps from great restaurants, theaters, cinemas, and, of course, nightlife. But, if desired, four Underground lines will take you from home to everywhere in Paris.
The house is in a quiet street that crosses two crowded 'Boulevards'. Anyway the apartment is completely sound-proofed in order to protect your sleep.
Paris markets are our favorite subjects. We regularly visit the Saint Honoré market, a “regular” market on Wednesday and Saturday, organic (and expensive!). The fish merchants there are incredible, and we adore also the poultry people. This market is near our home so we always schedule a Saturday morning appointment when we are in Paris !
Our home would be comfortable for a couple or a family. The four-poster bed and a sofa-bed can sleep up to 4.
The bathroom is new and has shower and jetted Tub (Jacuzzi).
The Kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cook and is hided besides a corner Bar.
A kind concierge (he's like a 'maitre d'Hotel') will greet you and supervise all your needs. We are no smokers and we ask to guests not smoking at our home.
