About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

If you want your stay in Paris to be very special, indulge in this magnificent apartment located in the very heart of Paris, 250m from the Louvre. You will experience luxury, amazing location and the lifestyle of a Parisian squire. Located on the fifth floor it looks out towards a small inner courtyard, providing a calm and peaceful oasis in the heart of the bustling capital, a rare luxury in this bustling and often city.

This is a brand new one bedroom luxury private apartment (50 sq/m or 540 sq/ft) located in the very heart of Paris right on the fabulous Avenue de l'Opera, one of the most prestigious addresses in Paris. It was totally gutted in 2009 and rebuilt to the highest standards with the best materials and fittings, and everything is brand new. The decor is by a leading French interior decorator and offers a very warm and cosy feeling. The stunning period building, formerly a luxurious palace, features an amazing grand entrance with sweeping staircase and 3 lifts. The Opera, Tuileries gardens, Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Madeleine are nearby, as well as the fabled boutiques of Faubourg Saint Honoré, the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores.

Transport (Metro and buses) are right outside the door. So is a large Monoprix store with a huge gourmet food and fine wine section. Within five minutes walk you will find over 75 typical Parisian restaurants, every type of food shop, as well as a street market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The very spacious bedroom features a king bed, plenty of storage including a walk in wardrobe and a stylish marble en-suite bathroom, bath with shower, a double washbasin and separate WC with a Miele washing machine/dryer.

There is also a second WC by the entrance with a small washbasin to act as a second bathroom if necessary. This is a very special feature for additional privacy, as in most other 1 bedroom apartments in Paris guests sleeping in the living room must cross the main bedroom at night to access the toilets !

The open plan kitchen is fully equipped with ultra modern appliances, including ceramic cook top, microwave/oven, dishwasher, large fridge-freezer (all by Miele), a Nespresso machine, a huge granite bench top. It is a fabulous space to prepare your meals with the local produce purchased at the nearby market and food shops.

In the living area there is a luxury Italian leather queen sized sofa bed, extremely comfortable to accommodate 2 additional persons. There are two leather arm chairs, flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo unit, spare DVDs and CDs, a small library including novels and many Paris sightseeing and restaurant guides. Also a stylish dining setting for 4.

This apartment features plenty of storage space and is tastefully furnished featuring a restful colour scheme and high quality furniture and fittings.

It is fully air conditioned with 2 independent zones which can be controlled individually. A very rare feature in Paris and essential in the summer months.

Accommodates up to 4 persons: 1 king size bed in the bedroom and 1 very comfortable queen sized sofa bed in the living room.

Also included: Free Wireless high speed internet and cable TV (200 Channels) with all major English speaking channels.

Fantastic Apartment!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was excellently situated on Ave. de L'Opera with a metro station right across the street. It had all the basic necessities that anyone could need and it is in a wonderful building with 3 lifts and a royal staircase. The fact that is also had a second bathroom was a huge plus. The master bedroom was quite large by Paris standards and since it faces the courtyard, it was also extremely quiet!

Susan, the owner was extremely communicative in every aspect - from booking to clear instructions how to check in and out, to recommendations of sights, activities and restaurants near by. Thank you Susan!

We had an amazing stay!

If we ever return to Paris, this is where we definitely will stay!

Extremely well located, one bedroom apartment with lift access, by Parisian standards very comfortable size for two people, king size bed and T.V. in the bedroom, with extendable sofa bed and another T.V. in the lounge. Quiet, beautifully furnished and equipped with everything to make one feel at home away from home. Includes two toilets, double sink in the bathroom, laundry facilities, fully equipped, modern kitchen. Most importantly, it includes your own Nespresso machine.

Our best ever Paris trip.

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Paris in August 2016 was made even more memorable by our stay in Susan & Christopher’s luxury apartment.

No expense has been spared in renovating the apartment to a high standard. Brand new kitchen and bathroom where everything works which is not always the case in other apartments we have rented in Paris. The appliances (dishwasher, oven, washer/dryer, etc.) are all of the best quality. Wish I could take them home with me!

The bedroom has a huge king size bed and the windows have both shutters and block out curtains, so comfortable and quiet we didn’t want to get up in the morning. Importantly, the apartment is furnished and decorated with considerable taste. It is a very cosy and attractive and a joy to return to after a day of sightseeing. We were surprised at how quiet the apartment was since it is right in the centre of Paris and on one of the major avenues. Facing an inner courtyard there is no traffic noise whatsoever. We can highly recommend this apartment and will definitely be staying again next time we return to Paris. The owners are Australian but spend several months a year in Paris. Susan is charming, super-efficient and answered all our questions quickly by email. Bonus attractions are the bus and metro right at the door and a large supermarket opposite. Tons of restaurants are in the streets around the apartment. This was our best ever stay in Paris.

We just returned from this lovely and modern apartment and we loved it! The apartment is centrally situated in the 1st arrondissement minutes away from the Louvre and beautiful Opera house. The apartment is also conveniently across the street from a metro stop (Pyramides), bus stops (on both sides of street), and the Big Bus company which provides tourists scenic bus rides around Paris. There's also a large shopping store called Monoprix across the street with a large grocery section on the lower level. Tons of restaurants and shopping are on the same street as the apartment as well. Overall everything was wonderfully convenient! You are in walking distance to most of the sites or a metro or bus ride away.

As for the apartment, it is very clean and there are nice upgrades throughout the space! The kitchen is a modern design and lots of room for our groceries. The kitchen is also fully stocked with everything one would need and even some extras like salt that others have left along the way. (We like to cook in sometimes so we found this to be a nice extra!) The living area is a good space and has a great sitting area with modern sofas. The bedroom was excellent in both storage, size, and comfort and the bathroom was lovely with a tub and washing/dryer machine. There's a second half bathroom for convenience in the apartment as well. It was also nice to have the air conditioning unit as it does sometimes get a bit warm in the summer. Overall the space was perfect for us and we would stay there again in a heartbeat!

A big thank you to Susan, the property manager and owner of the apartment! She communicated with us throughout the entire experience making sure everything was to our satisfaction. She was lovely to speak with and provided us with such great detail on the space and there's even a binder with EVERY possible detail of the apartment, appliances and electronic use, and the local restaurants and areas to shop! WOW super helpful! Thank you for a great experience and will really enjoyed our stay.

Stunning apartment, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so comfortable and so well appointed that any stay in Paris is guaranteed to be a memorable one. Its location is fantastic, enabling easy walks to all the famous Parisien landmarks, museums, galleries and gardens and at the end of the day you have a "Home" to return to! Eating in is a pleasure with a fully equipped kitchen and dining out is so easy with many good restaurants within walking distance. The information folder provided by the owners on restaurants, transport, shopping etc was invaluable. We referred to it constantly.All up we couldn't fault this apartment, it is a very special place in Paris.

Best Decision we made for entire two week Paris vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned 55+ travelers. Renting a Paris apartment was our first and most important decision for a two week vacation in Paris, and all other details, including travel times, revolved around that selection.

We were delighted with this apartment! Over and over we kept telling ourselves this was the best travel decision ever! It was even better than the description, with beautiful layered lighting, tall windows with black-out curtains, privacy, space, walls of storage, multiple seating options, and a wonderful deep tub for soaking. Intelligent design, beauty, and attention for comfort was evidenced through-out the space. Thank you for a COMFORTABLE king bed! And two bathrooms. The kitchen was modern and well equipped. Susan was always prompt with her replies and provided abundant information. The location: Louvre on one end and Opera Garnier on the other--Wow! We always felt safe and secure entering the building and within our apartment. The Paris tourism agency and grocery store are just across the street, as is the Metro, and bus stops are just steps away. We would recommend this to family, friends, everyone seeking a beautiful central location in Paris! A+, super, with grateful thanks to the owners for providing this wonderful abode in a glorious city.
