What makes this house unique

House recently entirely remodeled, offering large open spaces with a lot of light. Oriented South-Southwest and offering 2 large terraces to profite from the long summer evenings.

An open bar kitchen fully equipped with modern appliances and large side by side door fridge.

5 bedrooms allowing to sleep comfortably 8 people.

Furnished with taste, one bedroom decorated with art modern furniture designed by Majorelle.

Nested in a quiet and residential area ruled by special urbanism regulations, it is a real green island close to Paris. The park of Sceaux is across the street.

The nearby RER B will take you directly to Paris in less than 20 mn. This lane also connects the 2 airports of Paris (Orly is at 10 mn and Charles de Gaulle at 1hour). But this house, already outside of the city center, is situated at less than 20 mn from Versailles Castle or from the 'Valley of Chevreuse' the closest Natural National Park from Paris.

This house is then ideally situated for those who's interest is for the cultural life of Paris but not its turmoil and who want to find quietness from time to time. Is is a starting base for long walks or bike rides.

The proximity of ORLY airport, Massy high speed train station or A7/A10 freeways heading to the south of France allows you to fly quickly outside of Paris when ever you feel like it.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous month of April in the Antony house! It was big enough to accommodate many friends and family members over the course of the month, just far enough away from Paris to decompress from the general hustle and bustle of city life, and the piece de resistance - it's right across the street from the parc de Sceaux. We ran in the park every morning, took numerous strolls, crossed it daily to get to Sceaux and its superb bakery - L'Etoile du Berger - not to mention cheese, wine, fish shops, and wonderful restaurants. If you've been to Versailles, then you can imagine the Parc de Sceaux on a smaller scale, but it's free, and it's at your doorstep. Louis XVI would have been so much happier in Antony!

When we arrived at the RER station in Sceaux, it's only a 5 min walk to the house, but a friend of the owners picked us up since it was raining. He answered any and all questions. We were renting the house, but it felt more like we were staying at a friend's home.

Truly this home exceeded all expectations!

Large home in superb setting

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all for visitors to Paris. It has very easy access to CDG airport by direct line (45minutes), , to the center of Paris (St Michel) is 15 minutes by same train. It is located in a beautiful residential area, 5 minutes walking from train station (with elevator for bags). The bonus is the magical, magnificent, immense ,Parc de Sceaux, only three houses away, styled and designed like a mini-Versailles, with fountains and great free spaces, woods, canals and serenity.

The home was clean, the owner very kind and accessible, neighbors and friends and a housekeeper were always available to help and offer suggestions.

Just accoss the Parc de Sceaux is the quaint village of Sceaux, with the high quality boutiques for fresh bread, cheeses, wines, fish, patisseries and other French delicacies.

Lots of space, big windows with lots of brightness, back patio with deck table and chairs for meals outdoors.

We really had a great time and thank you Frederic!

Habitation parfaitement conforme à nos attentes qui nous a permis de passer un excellent Noël en famille. Grand séjour/salle à manger permettant de recevoir tout le monde. Accueil très chaleureux de la famille Kolb. Le quartier tranquille bien desservit (RER et voiture), le parc de Sceaux toujours aussi beau. La décoration intérieure et les chambres et commodités sont d'excellent standing.

Fabulous stay in Antony!

  • 5 of 5

The house, its charm, its location... all exceeded expectations! Numerous friends and family members came to visit while we were there in the month of April, and the house accommodated everyone perfectly well. It was also very easy to jump on the RER - just a short walk away - to access Paris any time of the day. And after a very busy day of sightseeing, museum-going, and eating, working, playing... returning to the Sceaux/Antony neighborhood was quite frankly a little piece of heaven. It's a lovely neighborhood, very peaceful. A great place to decompress. But the real piece de resistance was the parc de Sceaux, located just across the street. We ran there every morning. We crossed it daily to get to restaurants and shops (you'll definitely want to get your daily bread from the Etoile du Berger, and your cheese from the cheese shop just up the street from the bakery. We are already suffering withdrawal pains from the incomparable breads, pastries, cheeses...). The park is stunning. It's beautiful in design, but more intimate and friendly than Versailles.

The home owners were very gracious - awaiting us upon our arrival were roses, chocolates, fruit, and a fine friend who picked us up from the RER station in order to save us a short walk in the rain.

We truly loved our April in Antony!

Magnifique maison et cadre de vie

  • 5 of 5

Maison où il fait bon vivre en famille dans un quartier résidentiel, baignée de lumière, au calme, et fonctionnelle (les espaces de vie et de nuit sont bien différenciés). Près de Paris (20 minutes en RER) avec un petit air de province par le charme de l'environnement et sa tranquillité.

La proximité du Parc de Sceaux (il n'y a qu'à traverser l'avenue) est un bonheur aussi bien pour les enfants (aire de jeux, grand espaces verts) que pour les adultes (pique-nique et ballades)

Un endroit où il fait tout simplement bon vivre.
