Overview

About the property

Apartment / Condo, 1 Bedroom, Sleeps two (2), 1 dining with tower view, 1 Bath.

3 mn walk to the Eiffel tower and 6 to rue Cler, my 6th floor (WITH ELEVATOR), stunning, two-room designer apartment is AIR CONDITIONED (a rarity in Paris apartments). Remodeled and renovated in 2009 under the supervision of the Italian architect Leoterio BERELLINI, this 30 m² (323 square ft) flat offers the warmth of wood and the modernity of the 21st century.

Upon entering the light rooms which feature blond solid oak parquet floor go directly to the PEDRALI round clear glass and chrome table, sit down on a Victoria ghost Philippe STARCK chair and look out the double glazed French window. Above the typical Paris tin roofing, you have an amazing view of the Eiffel tower, from first level to the 324 m high top. Look to your right and you will see the trees of the “Jardin du Champs de Mars” and in the distance the “Sacré Coeur” of Montmartre.

From where you are you can see the functional kitchen with brushed stainless steel countertops and sink, white lacquer cupboard doors hiding the under-the-counter refrigerator / deep freezer, white Limoges china, champagne glasses, shiny stainless steel steam cooker, spaghetti pot and coated fry pans. The induction hob and multi combination microwave oven, tea & espresso machine, toaster, to cook a delicious breakfast and romantic and tasty meals.

On your left is a wooden desk with two drawers, a cordless telephone to make your free (land lines & cell. phones) calls home or restaurant reservations…, the box with an unlimited free high-speed internet Wi-Fi connection. On the shelves are precious art books, a selection of handbooks to guide you as you discover the City of Light and live in Paris as a Parisian. The warm cherry wood paneling conceals a large wardrobe.

On the wall, lit by a Northern Lighting tripod lamp by Louis POULSEN, 19th century engravings show architectural details.

Behind the door is the bathroom, with pietra serena type floor, small light grey tile mosaic on the walls and inside the shower stall. Above the sink, a large triptych mirror conceals shelves, electric socket and blow-dryer. Under the sink and hanging on the door are André COUREGE 100 % cotton bath towels, towels, hand towels and face mitts.

It is from the second room that you can truly appreciate the work of the Italian architect Leoterio BERELLINI. The design and layout will give you the impression of space. Nothing blocks your view to the end of the apartment, as perspective and fluidity hide the technical part of the kitchen. In the living room, there is an antique Louis XVI chest of drawers with marble top next to the Louis XV Carrara marble fireplace surmounted by a large mirror. Thanks to a dimmer, the 19th Century Japanese Satsuma cloisonné lamp provides a warm light.

Sit on one of the two comfortable “modernized” Louis XV armchair, put down your drink on the mirror-polished stainless steel table, designed by Maurizio PEREGALLI for ZEUS, to watch your choice of English speaking channels on the large flat screen TV or your own blue ray DVD. Or, under the Eileen GREY tube light, prepare your itinerary for the next day while listening to your favorite music on the stereo.

When you are tired, grab the chromed handle to open the queen size bed concealed behind the cherry wood paneling. Your bed is ready. You will appreciate the quality 100% cotton satin sheets and 100% latex mattress. From this cozy nest, admire the view out of the window and beyond the trees, the golden Invalides dome which hosts Napoleon tomb.

From every French style window, you have an open view of the so typical elegant dressed stone buildings of Paris. This spectacular view (especially the Eiffel tower at night when the light display starts at the hour, every hour !) is one you will remember long after your stay.

You feel hungry ? Go downstairs. It will not take more than a minute to find everything :camembert or any of the 500 French cheeses from the cheese shop , where the owner can advise you about what cheese is best for you, a “baguette” from the next-door baker, fresh fruits and veggies from a green grocer, meat from a butcher or seafood at the fishmonger or any groceries you need at the always open grocery store. Wine and liquor? “NICOLAS”, one of the best French wine stores, located just across the street will give you excellent advice on how to combine food and drinks. Or just pick one of the many restaurants in the neighborhood offering French and international cuisines.

To start your day, consider a walk to “Le village Suisse”. This site, which has served as a center for antique dealers since 1900, currently features over 150 different merchants.

Museums within a 5 to 25 minute walk include : Rodin, Orsay, Branly, Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Palais de Tokyo, Orangerie, Jeu de Paume, Louvre, Maillol, Trocadéro.

You love French cuisine why don't you consider cooking lessons at the world wide famous CORDON BLEU cooking school, 20 mn walk from the apartment.

If you do not feel like walking or taking a bus or Paris’s historic Metro, rent a bike from the “Velib” station in front of the building. A two minute ride will bring you to the Invalides or Eiffel Tower where, if you were wise enough to make a reservation weeks ago, you could have an unforgettable meal at Alain DUCASSE’s Jules Vernes restaurant on the second floor of the tower. Or in five minutes, following in President OBAMA’ steps, you can experience “La fontaine de Mars”, a very old Parisian bistro, which specializes in hearty Southwestern cooking (foie gras, magret or confit de canard…). Should you wish to prepare your own meal, return three blocks to rue Cler, one of the best and most famous and vivid 3 or 4 pedestrian streets for food in Paris.

Back “home” why not relax at the corner Thai spa or beauty salon and finish your shopping at the two duty free shops… or select among the various neighboring French and exotic restaurants. The area is very safe and considered one of the best in Paris. Whether you are on vacation or on a business trip, it really is a spectacular sight to stroll or jog around the Champs de Mars and in one glance view Trocadero, Eiffel Tower and Ecole militaire.

Last but not least, this is a fantastic value when compared to staying at a three star hotel, not to mention having to get breakfast and meals at restaurants.

Keywords: Apartment with Eiffel Tower View. Above the typical Paris tin roofing, you can see the Eiffel tower from first level to the 324 m high top. Best of all the Eiffel Tower is a hop, skip and jump from your door, which makes for a perfect, romantic evening stroll. Rue Cler, one of the best and most famous and vivid 3 or 4 pedestrian streets for food in Paris.

About The Owner

I am a 6th generation Parisian, born and raised in Paris. I love large cities where I can stroll, smell, feel, breathe and live the life the residents live. I am a good cook and enjoy good food.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose 15th Vaugirard

Whether you walk, bike or use the various modes of public transportation in front of your door, you are in the heart of this magical and romantic city. After 30 years of extensive travel all over the world, I know what is like “to live out of suitcase” in standardized and impersonal hotel rooms. Here you will immediately feel at home. You will find your baker, your butcher, your greengrocer, your wine and liquor store right outside. There is no need to rush after a hard day’s work or a long day of sightseeing or shopping.

What makes this condo unique

For your stay in Paris my beautifully renovated apartment is perfect and has everything you need : a very comfortable bed and furnishings, modern bath, a great kitchen, free wireless and hi-speed access to the Internet. It is conveniently located to shopping, the metro and direct train to Versailles, with proximity (3 minute walk to the tower) and great views to Eiffel Tower, which is the highlight of the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

our memory of your apartment is lovely.....such

a fabulous trip to Paris and your apartment was a significant part of

the wonderful two weeks. We hope our paths cross again someday! Best

Wishes, Christy

My wife and I had a wonderful week in this apartment. It was a short walk to the train station/subway and an even shorter walk to most of the buses! The apartment was small and well decorated. The water was hot and the air conditioner kept us cool on those warm days. Most evenings we opened the windows and listened to the city until it was time to sleep. We ended each evening watching the lights sparkle on the Eiffel Tower. Priceless!

The stairs are steep and the elevator is small and starts a floor above the street.

Excellence in the Shadow of the Eiffel tower

  • 5 of 5

Delightful Petite Maison very near the Eiffel tower,The host was very attentive providing advice how to travel from the Airport to the apartment (the shuttle stopping a few doors away) and organizing return of the coat I left behind.The apartment is thoughtfully fitted out with all mod cons,air conditioning wi fi ,kitchen etc.Ready access to bus and metro.A few stairs to access the lift which may be an issue to some with mobility issues but OK for most folk. Nearby shops give a great range of food cheese and wine .Great meals at restaurant Eiffel 21 or more expensive the Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower itself(book well in advance).We watched the Bastille day fireworks from the window while drinking Champagne and snacking on fine pate and cheese.

Amazing trip! Didier was very helpful. This appartment is within walking distance of many great restaurants, a grocery store, and the bus/metro stops. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Paris.

Great location with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Didier's apartment. The apartment is near the bus stop that has buses that go to numerous attractions. There is a pharmacy, grocery store and gift shop nearby. The bakery down the street is wonderful. The pasta/pizza restaurant that is next to the apartment is great. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from the window while eating your morning pastries. At night you can sit and watch the lights twinkle on the tower! Didier was very helpful with tips on transportation from the airport etc. We highly recommend staying here.

Charming, clean, comfortable, complete

  • 5 of 5

I am almost embarrassed to tell people how nice our little apartment was - sounds like bragging. It's on the 6th floor of a classic Paris building but is completely rebuilt inside. It's small and is partly under the roofline, but that's okay when you are running around Paris every day, which is what visitors should be doing. Full (small) kitchen, coffee-maker, queen-size Murphy bed (comfortable), mostly modern except for the marble fireplace and Louis Quinze chairs with white ostrich upholstery (that's not real, is it??). Plenty of hot water (don't get burned!). Your host, Didier, is very helpful and forthcoming. The location is very near the Champs de Mars and there's a lot of traffic below, which makes you feel like an American In Paris (if you're an American, anyway). You can watch the Eiffel Tower light show through the windows! Below, at street level, there are restaurants, shops, and a great patisserie. We indulged in pastry every morning. The location is not far from Metro and is really close to bus stops.

This apartment is not a choice for the elderly (though I myself am 70) nor the handicapped, because the elevator does not go all the way down to the ground floor nor all the way up to the sixth floor. There are 38 stairs to be climbed on an old wooden spiral staircase to make up the difference. However, I hear that most 6th-floor apartments in Paris are walk-ups!

And this one has A/C as well!

From my front door, only 30 steps, the bus # 69 starts ! (check out Rick Steves, Paris book, for details). This bus takes you along rue St Dominique, up rue du Bac and across the Seine to rue de Rivoli, past the Hotel de Ville to Place de la Bastille in le Marais, and finally up to the famous Père Lachaise cemetery (Edith PIAF - Marcel PROUST- Frederic CHOPIN - Marcel MARCEAU - Amadeo MODIGLIANI - Jim MORRISSON ....) . It will get you to all the major Paris attractions Notre-Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, the Orsay and Pompidou museums, Les Invalides, where Napoleon lies. The metro and RER C (TRAIN straight to Versailles) stops are only 3 blocks away.
