Beautiful Apt. Nestled Between Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides and Rue Cler Market

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

You’ll know that you've arrived in Paris when you fling open the living room shutters to take in the view, over the rooftops, of the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Our apartment is in a charming, historic building dating back to the mid 1800s. While walking up the stairs to the 4th floor (no elevator) pause on the landings to enjoy the view of the lovely courtyard below.

The apartment, with hardwood floors and cornices, is flooded with natural light. It's steps away from the vibrant thoroughfares of rue Saint Dominique and rue de Grenelle, where you’ll find bakeries, cheese shops, chic boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, bistros, buses, métro stops and bicycle rental stations. We are two streets from the famous rue Cler, a bustling, all-week-long, open street market made famous by Rick Steves in his Paris guide books.

From the bottom of our street ride the 69 bus – one of the most interesting bus rides in Paris (see Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik) - to the Orsay museum, the Louvre, the Hôtel de Ville, the Marais district and the Père Lachaise cemetery. Just around the corner, hop on the line 8 métro and within minutes you’ll be at the Tuileries Gardens, the spectacular Opéra Garnier, or the Place de la Bastille.

By foot you’re minutes away from the Eiffel Tower, the Rodin museum and sculpture garden, Les Invalides (home of the Army Museum and Napoleon’s tomb), the Esplanade des Invalides (stop by and watch a pétanque game) the ornate Alexandre III bridge and the Grand and Petit Palais.

If you’re the adventurous type, consider renting a Vélib bike from one of the bike rental stands just a few steps from the apartment.

Before you head out too far afield, however, you might enjoy exploring the surrounding streets and sampling some of the enticing little shops that line rue Saint Dominique and rue de Grenelle. Rue Cler is the perfect place to fill your shopping bag with fresh produce, meat and fish.

Back in the apartment take advantage of our fully equipped kitchen to create your gourmet meal which you can enjoy while watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle (after dark, every hour on the hour, for 5 minutes).

A high-speed wireless Internet connection, phone with free calls to North America and Europe, and flat screen cable TV with international channels are at your disposal. We have a small library which includes guide books, métro and bus guides, phrase books and dictionary.

Our apartment has been lovingly furnished and maintained as a home-away-from-home. We trust that you will enjoy it and appreciate it as we do.

Perfectly Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th stay at this apartment and have not considered staying any where else. The neighborhood is excellent and you are centrally located so getting anywhere is easy. The apartment has all the comforts of home and the bed is very comfortable. Jane and Jim are generous hosts and their response time is very prompt. If I am lucky enough to return to Paris, I will check to see if this apartment is available first before I book my flight.

Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Communication with owner Jane was excellent. Exchanging emails was very enjoyable. The bed was quite comfortable as was the living room furniture. We enjoyed the Nespresso machine each morning. Everything we needed was there. The #69 bus line stop was at the end of the block, 2 minute walk if you are slow. The Metro was across the street with a Taxi stand also. We used them all. Excellent restaurants in all directions. A list of is in the apartment but we wanted to try traditional French food which we found two close by that were quite remarkable. Great location, you can’t go wrong. We traveled all corners of city on Metro from here including Versailles. Very easy. Very clean and safe apartment. Thank you Jane we were so pleased.

Perfect place to see Paris!!! Comfortable, Cozy, Convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This property had all that we needed to have a fun and a safe place to stay in Paris. Apartment was clean, quiant, well stocked kitchen, great location with groceries stores, restaurants, metro, and taxi stand. Owners supplied me with directions to and from airport and sight seeing. My daughter and I had the time of our lives. I highly recommend this property. I am a flight attendant and have stayed at a lot of places. This is a winner!!

Great location, good stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed staying in this apartment. It has an excellent location close to shops, restaurants and the metro. It is nestled in a non-touristy neighbourhood on a quiet street. There was a small glitch with internet, but the owners were most responsive and quickly helped us sort out the issue.

Perfect Paris Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for over six weeks and had a blast! A lovely spot, very functional and comfortable--A true Parisian experience! Very well located, from the apartment I walked all over Paris! The living room couch folds out into a remarkably comfy sleeper sofa. While In Paris I had several friends come to visit and we all were comfortable! Both the living room and the bedroom can be closed off for privacy with the bathroom in between them. The apartment is fully stocked with all the comforts of home. The owners are delightful--extraordinarily kind and thoughtful and very responsive. I would HIGHLY recommend this apartment for those looking for a home-away-from-home in Paris! I will be back soon!

Best part of my trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideal in every possible way! A great deal of thought has been put into making sure that everything you need is it a guide book, an umbrella, kitchen pots and pans, lovely linens, WIFI, phone, hairdryer and even an Espresso machine. I enjoyed shopping locally for fresh produce, meats/cheese, wine and, of course, a daily pastry. I loved coming home from a day of sight-seeing to my Parisian apartment, seeping wine while I prepared dinner and dining nightly with a view of the sparkling Eiffel Tower. The apartment was convenient to public transportation, as well. I made use of the "free" International call feature to complete a real estate transaction while in Paris. The owner replied to all emails promptly and remained solicitous of our well being throughout our stay. I would encourage anyone wanting to live like a Parisian to rent this apartment! Loved it!!
