About the property

UNIQUE , 6 windows on Place Dauphine, legal and registered rental

This unique property located on worlds renown Place Dauphine is located in one of the most beautiful buildings, dating from 1607 AD. The two floor duplex apartment is located on the noble floors of the building and can be reached by a private elevator. The apartment is completely renovated with modern comfort (full AC) although we restored all the historical features of the apartment. Sandstone walls, orinigal fire place, beams, etc.. Best craftmanship of France was used and we completed the decoration by Baccarat lamps, La Cornue "chef" stove and Houlès for the curtains. Antiques and silver ware are putting the finishing touch. The apartment is very quiet since there is no through traffic on Place Dauphine and you are nevertheless in the center of the city on Ile de la Cité. You can see Notre Dame from the windows and the walk to the Louvre takes 5 minutes. You are at equal distance from Le Marais and Saint Germain des Près and that walk takes 10 minutes. There are three metro stations right next to the building as well as a train to Versailles. Many good restaurants at Place Dauphine and at walking distance.

The layout of the apartment is: floor 3, entrance with toilet, closet and hidden laundry room with washer and dryer. Large living room and dining room. On this floor is also a complete kitchen with an authentic La Cornue Chefs' stove, dishwasher and large refrigerator, Nespresson coffee machine, chilled wine cellar and all other applicances you need to make an outstanding meal are available. On floor 4 which you reach by an internal easy to walk up staircase you reach the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed, large closet and drawers, a safe and a seperate toilet. The adjacent bathroom with a Carrare marble sink has a bath and facing the bath is an open space italian shower. The second bedroom has two seperate beds which can be turned over to a king size bed, large closet, a drawer cabinet, and its own bathroom very well appointed with an amazing shower of which the protection shields fold up against the walls, leaving you a mirror and plenty of space to dress up and make yourself pretty. There is a toilet in this bathroom, so complete independant privacy for all the occupants. This second bedroom can also be reached by the front door of the 4th floor, so ideal for two couples or families. Both bedrooms as well as the living room have the main windows on the magical Place Dauphine. For larger parties, we added a sofa couch in the living room for 2 persons. But above all these material details, the important thing is that this rental is licensed and 100% legal. The ID is : 48.856434,2.342683 ( Registre des Autorisations de Changement d'Usage pour Meublés). No fear for nasty e-mails telling you that the rental you selected was closed by the City of Paris. We are submitted to tourist tax and VAT which is included in our price.

About Vasseur Mia

Dutch native but living in France since almost 30 years, I love the Place Dauphine. Hospitality is in our genes in Holland, and when my children left home I decided to occupy myself and naturally the idea of sharing this magnificient city came up. I started with one single rental in Saint German des Pres and I like doing this so much that I needed to find other properties to satisfy all the demands. I have many regular guests, so hosting everybody meant more space.

Vasseur Mia purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Vasseur Mia chose 1st Arrondissement

As a fan of Place Dauphine, I purchased an apartment in 2010 for myself, I greatly appreciated the location, surroundings and atmosphere of this building. When this duplex came available I did not hesitate one second and after several months of hard work, we restored the apartment and added modern comfort to make it even more exceptional.

What makes this apartment unique

Beside all this surrounding beauty, I also guarantee you a property without any functional problems and most important, my properties are all "compensated" which means that I purchased the rights to operate so I have all the authorizations required by the city of Paris, which is not the case with most of the rental properties offered in Paris. Many were closed or are going to be.

Great propert, awesome location.

  • 5 of 5

Fit our family of 5 perfectly since the couch downstairs made a comfy bed for one. The courtyard park the flat overlooks was very active in the evenings and has good dinner options. Lots of steps to get up to the flat - at least there is a small elevator for luggage. Decor was very "French" according to my wife. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. For the good understanding I just wanted to mention that taking the stairs is a choice because the elevator is there of course to carry persons. It is small and only fits two persons at the time, but at least there is one which is not the case in the other surrounding buildings. Our building being built in 1607 AD, which is over 400 years ago, elevators did not exist. We added it with many constraints, so that is why the size is small.

Our visit to Paris was made that much better by our choice of this apartment. It is everything that is shown in the pictures and more. The decor and furnishings are so beautifully done with no detail spared. The location is perfect for traveling anywhere in the city. Centrally located and very close to metro, train, bus, taxi, etc. My husband and I stayed for a week along with our friend and both bedrooms with attached baths were lovely. There are several excellent restaurants in the square directly in front of the apartment. Afternoons and evenings find the square full of lively groups of locals socializing and competing in friendly games of Pétanque. Mia was there to greet us when we arrived to show us around and provide valuable information about everything we needed to know. She also made herself available to us if there was anything we needed help with.

If you want to have a truly Pariasn experience, I highly recommend this apartment. We couldn’t have chosen any better! Thank you Mia for being such a gracious hostess!

Elegant, Spacious Apartment in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly spacious apartment in the very middle of Paris--walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame, Sainte Chappelle. It is beautifully decorated, clean, and supplied with everything you need--hair dryers, lovely towels, fully equipped kitchen. Very rare to find an apartment with two full baths so two couples can share comfortably. I can't wait to go back. Mia, the owner, is very helpful and accommodating as well.

A beautiful gem!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully appointed historic apartment in historic Place Dauphine on Ile de la Cite. Owner Mia Vasseur has made ingenious use of every 17th Century quirk and idiosyncrasy to create a truly special place. Spotless and well-tended by a proprietor who has poured her passion for architecture and design into this outstanding property. In the immortal words of Arnold S., “I’ll be back.”

Nearest Airport
20 Kilometres
Charles de Gaulle
Car: not necessary

On Ile de la Cité in the hart of Paris at 5 minutes from Louvre Museum, Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle. At 10 minutes walking distance to Saint Germain des Près and the Latin Quarter and a 15 minutes walk to the hart of Le Marais. Right next to the RER station that takes you to Versailles in 20 minutes. You are right in the middle of all, but without the inconveniences of the city since on this very tranquil historical square, there is no traffic. Here you can enjoy the best of the city without the hassle. One of the most priviliged spots of Paris. Many restaurants close by and the grocery and bakery stores are at a 7 minutes stroll.
