2007 saw us add our beautiful apartment Chez Claude in Paris to the Pocock Property family. We couldn’t resist the perfect location that no one can ever believe two “Kiwis" own! Featuring views to Notre Dame, our apartment witnessed the French Revolution and is wonderfully situated in the Latin Quarter - at Chez Claude you can stay in a true piece of Parisian history. Merely a stone's-throw from Pablo Picasso's former residence, and within easy walking distance to everything from the Louvre museum to St Germain, this is the perfect home for a Paris getaway!
Anna Pocock purchased this apartment in 2007
Location, Location, Location. Enjoy watching Paris thrive on our doorstep.
We have put our heart and soul into making Chez Claude a true Parisian Home.
Our wonderful Parisian manager, Martine, loves giving our guests advice and helping them to plan and book the perfect Paris experience.
Dear Anna and Bryan,
Thank you for sharing the amazing Chez Claude with us. It was a refuge when the feet were too sore, or the occasional hang over was too large. It was the highlight of our trip! We are already planning our return visit.
A delightful apartment where we stayed for a week with our 2 teenage sons. The well situated apartment is well maintained and contains everything you need including excellent Wifi, a washing machine and an excellent drier. The friendly owners supplied plenty of useful information on how all their appliances work, where to visit, shopping, tips on getting around and restaurants. Would love to go back for another visit perhaps at a different time of year. Thanks
We loved staying at this apartment. The location could not be better, and the double-glazed windows keep out the noise of the busy street and river below. The apartment is in a building that is a bit rough around the edges, but the apartment itself is wonderfully appointed and well-equipped; everything that you need is there. Our greeter met us promptly, spoke perfect English, and introduced to all the features of the apartment. When we had a problem with the hot water (we were not familiar with the on-demand heater), he returned quickly to fix it. Beside the incredible views from the windows (Notre Dame!) I appreciated having the stable and fast internet connection. I could go on and on, but let's just say again that we loved this place. We hope that it is available on our next trip to Paris.
My sister and I had a wonderful stay in this apartment. We were immediately impressed by charm of the apartment and could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation in Paris. We loved the location of the apartment and we were able to walk to many of the tourist attractions ( the metro is very also very close.) The apartment itself is very warm ( we were there in March and it snowed one day!) and cosy. The kitchen is well equipped and food markets nearby for anyone wanting to prepare meals. We appreciated the restaurant recommendations ( which were fabulous by the way... we tried three of them! ) that are included in the apartment manual which itself is very detailed and informative. I really liked the large library of books and DVDs which is a nice touch. We were very happy with our choice of apartment in Paris.
We were fortunate to have found and rented this lovely apartment for our week long stay in Paris. The rental (pre-arrival) process was well organized and flawless. Communication with the property owner was timely and clear; which reassured us that we had rented a great place. On arrival we were greeted on time by the property manager and the apartment was precisely as described. Clean, well equipped and well located in the heart of Paris. The apartment felt safe, well secured and very comfortable for a family with young kids. Having reliable heat, hot water, a full kitchen and laundry in a central Paris apartment is quite a luxury. The apartment and rental process easily met/exceeded our expectations. I couldn't imagine having the same great trip while staying in a small hotel room typical of that area of Paris. Highly recommended.
We stayed here for two weeks and very much enjoyed the apartment. Its perfect for a couple, especially if you like to cook. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and maintained..This is clearly a home for the owners and the supplies and attention to detail make it very livable. Although we've been to Paris many times, this place is ideal for first timers because it is so centrally located, only one and half blocks from Place St Michel and transportation, and overlooking the Seine. The directions, apartment instruction manuals and suggestions for local sites are the best we've seen. The owners clearly put a lot of effort into making the place fun for their guests.
The support staff could not have been more helpful in all the pre-trip communications and follow-up. We have already recommended this place to friends.
We expect to return again.
Everything was wonderful. Anna was a great hostess, the property was perfectly as described. Location could not have been better. Everything was clean and well maintained. There were many small details that Anna had taken care of, including putting together written documentation on sites to see, good local restaurants etc. The restaurant recommendations were spot on. We loved them.
Stylish and central, Chez Claude is on the famous Left Bank of the beautiful Seine in the highly desirable and exciting ‘Sixth Arrondissement’ in the heart of Paris. Chez Claude gives you the very best; ‘the perfect apartment, in the perfect location,' to truly experience the essence of Paris. With a view over the Ile de la Cite, Sainte Chapelle and the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris, this apartment couldn't be more centrally located.
Chez Claude is in a 17th Century building on Quai des Grands Augustins. 'Quai', means 'wharf' in French. Chez Claude is on the famous Left Bank of the River Seine, an area rich with an exciting history.
The best way to experience The Sixth - and the rest of Paris - is by foot. This way you can take your time, and discover the many hidden possibilities. Travelling by bicycle is not only fun, it's also environmentally-friendly. Vélib, which means “vélo libre” or “vélo liberté” - ‘free bicycle’ or ‘bicycle freedom’ - is a great way to explore. Simply rent a bicycle from a hire point, cycle where you like, and return the bike to one of over 750 points located around the city.
Chez Claude is within walking distance of some of the world’s best restaurants. In St Germain are two of the most popular in Paris: Café de Flore and Les Deux Magots, or if you are a fan of Midnight in Paris, Cremerie Polidor is a ten-minute walk away.
Walk out of Chez Claude and you're in an area full of fantastic shops. From designer boutiques to bakeries, from antique shops to modern bookshops. It's easy to while away many hours, whether you're here to pick up a bargain or simply enjoy some window shopping.
The Latin Quarter with its rich literary and artistic heritage is a short walk from Chez Claude. Enjoy a walk through the bustling streets to literally follow in the footsteps of great writers and artists, including Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce and Pablo Picasso, who came to Paris to create some of their greatest works.
