About the property

calm and luminous luxury apartment

A peaceful, 3-room apartment flooded with light on the fifth floor or a freestone building with a lift, located a ten-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower in a commercial district. It offers a double bedroom, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The sofa bed in the living room offers an extra sleeping arrangement.

The apartment is not overlooked and, having no upstairs neighbour, is peaceful.

About Astrid

I own and look after this 3-room apartment.

Close attention has been to decor and cleaning in the apartment, I have worked hard to make sure everything is to my guests' satisfaction.

I love meeting people from all over the world and am always available to answer your questions and requests about preparations and having a brilliant holiday.

My apartment is waiting to welcome you to Paris!

My job : I teach cooking lessons

Astrid purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Astrid chose Javel

My apartment is located at the end of the rue du Commerce, ten minutes from the famous Eiffel Tower, one of the most visited landmarks in the world. This district is very vibrant, typical to the Rive Gauche.

The largest shopping centre in Paris: Intra Muros, Beaugrenelle, is 200m away from the apartment.

You can find many storage shops, restaurants, and bars visited by locals that are close by and give your stay a traditional Parisian flavour.

This location is like a charming village in the heart of Paris.

My apartment will make you feel at home. You will be experiencing a true Parisian life rather than stay in an impersonal hotel room.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has a lot of charm, nestled in an ancient, freestone building, which is also large peaceful with double-glazing, bright, and clean.

We are 500 m from the Eiffel Tower!

The apartment boasts 3 delightful rooms: a bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom with a WC, a lounge, a dining room, and a kitchen.

My apartment is set in a lively quarter that is easily accessible, convivial, and commercial.

The museums and monuments (Eiffel Tower, Invalides, and more besides) are close by.

Commerce Metro station (Line 8) and Motte Picquet (Line 6)

Astrid is 5 stars + all the way

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in Astrid's apt. I would not think of ever staying anywhere else while in Paris. A most charming, quiet, and comfortable 4 room apt. in one of the nicest arrondissements (15th) in Paris. Some of the best shopping, bakeries, wine shops, restaurants, etc. are w/in a 5-10 minute walk. Astrid is a chef and her kitchen is the epitome of one who loves her profession. Mornings of going to buy croissants and the like and coming up to make coffee, etc. for breakfast outdoes hotel life by a mile (same said for lunch and/or dinner). Astrid will give you advice on all of the aforementioned and you will go to many places in the 15th that tourists never get to. Short walk to metro and/or buses; 10 min. walk to Seine, Eiffel Tower with Les Invalides, Ecole Militaire. and many other famous sites also w/in walking distance. Staying in Astrid's apt. will make your trip to Paris a most memorable one.

Excellent séjour, excellent appartement.

  • 4 of 5

Notre séjour de 15 jours s'est très bien passé. L'appartement de Astrid est très agréable et confortable. Il est de plus très bien placé, le quartier vivant et hyper commerçant.

Thank you Astrid for these 15 days in Paris. Your apartment is very confortable, there are many commerces and restaurants around. A very good adress for a stay in this wonderfull town. Clotilde from Reunion Island

A really well located and cozy apartment. Very well equipt for cooking. Many markets nearby to get fresh ingredients. A great Paris experience. Walking around the 15th we felt like residents.

Astrid is a gracious and warm host. Ask about having her prepare a dinner. We had a fantastic meal at the apartment.

Pied a terre in the heart of the 15th

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I spent a lovely week in Astrid's apartment. It is a wonderfully quiet apartment being located on the top floor of a building with a elevator. The photos give a very good impression of the apartment itself. There are blackout blinds so you can get a good night's sleep before your daily Parisian adventures. The kitchen is very well equipped as the owner is a cooking instructor, with excellent pots and pans and an induction cooktop which makes cooking up an amazing dinner from your fresh market finds a breeze. The apartment is located in a very local area away from crowded tourist areas but it is still easy to get to everything you might want to see. Every convenience is right outside your door on Rue de Commerce including all kinds of wonderful shops, restaurants and bakeries. Several Metro stops are within a 10 minute walk. The owner is a warm and gracious host and she enthusiastically helped us with everything we needed. Thank you Astrid, for a wonderful stay!

The best apt. in the best location

  • 5 of 5

You cannot finds a better place to stay in Paris. A most comfortable apt.. in the 15th arrond. with access to all of Paris, either by foot or metro. The apt. is quite comfortable and very quiet. Astrid cannot do enough to ensure your stay there is enjoyable. Fabulous kitchen with everything one needs for an extended rm. with large screen TV, CD player and WiFi throughout. Elevator bldg. w/apt. on top floor. Many shops and restaurants in this quiet residential area area that make it most convenient to eat in or out. A short 15 min. walk to La Tour Eiffel...and metro is a few steps away. Would not stay anywhere else on my next visit but Astrid's apt. ron

Wonderful apartment and warm hostess!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is wonderful, comfortable and nicely decorated. There is a personal touch from the owner that lets you feel at home. It has all necessary appliances, and more. The hostess is very warm and strives to make you feel at ease, including a notebook with plenty of suggestions. We also loved the neighborhood, as the building is just around the corner from Rue du Commerce, with plenty of boutiques and the best ice cream in Paris! Also there is a Metro station and a bus stop nearby (50 meters). I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends!
