Paris Arrondissement 18 apartment description

'La Parisienne', on the fourth floor with a lift, is a one-bedroom 42 square meter apartment designed by an Italian architect with the décor chosen by one of Australia's top interior designer. There is a market and metro stop a stone's throw from the apartment with three metro stations and lines within five minutes walk. Right in the heart of the art district of Paris. Gare du Nord (direct line to CDG airport) is 10 minutes by foot.

No expense has been spared on furnishing this treasure of an apartment, from the Farrow and Ball painted walls, original art nouveau coffee table, hand embroidered silk curtains and genuine oriental rugs to the antique dining table and lamps (there are 4 in the loungeroom alone) , the apartment has attention to detail at every turn.

Apartments overlooking parks are rare in Paris and the window above this one lets in loads of sun all year round. You can just see the top of the Eiffel Tower lit up on the hour at night and, if you lean out the window, Sacre Coeur is just up the hill. There is a fresh gourmet food market alongside the park on Fridays.

Although located in the 9th, the apartment borders the 18th and is just a short walk away from the artistic heart of Paris, Montmartre, with it's fabulous designer clothes and jewellery shops. Moulin Rouge and the theatre district of Pigalle is one metro stop or five minutes walk away. For more information about the area, see the Easyjet magazine feature article (June 2013) about Pigalle (5 mins walk) being the most hip place in Paris of the moment

There is also an open air tourist route bus stop almost outside the door, which takes you to every major tourist attraction in Paris, including the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Seine, Arch de Triomphe, Pompidou Centre and other major art galleries and museums.

Paris' art and theatre action is across the huge boulevarde on one end of the park, while the 9th arondissment itself has become the gentrified home of Parisian film makers and writers. It has trendy restaurants and the famous Rue des Martyrs and Rue Lepic has some of the best gourmet food shops in Paris.

Upon arrival,Tom (who speaks English!) will welcome you after your journey and be happy to answer any questions you may have. (Tom lives upstairs so will then also 'be there for you 24/7' during your entire visit, should you have any further questions).

At the end of the day, it's easy to relax in our modern artistic apartment with a full bath - a rarity in Paris apartments. You've got all modern conveniences, highspeed internet, free international phone to contact home, cable TV, DVD (all zones).

Inside the apartment is spacious and elegant. Extra leaves of the antique dining table make it comfortable for six. The Italian Marmarino bathroom with bath is luxurious and the gourmet kitchen inspires you to cook.

The apartment is owned by Australian author Barbara Biggs, who often visits to write by the chair in front of the window. The spot where she wrote her third book, The Accidental Renovator: A Paris Story, which is about the apartment, it's renovation and the eccentric Parisians she met during 2004 when she lived in La Parisienne for seven months to renovate it. For more information see author's website - see links to 'more information' or google.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About: I'm a writer and have written three books at the window in the apartment. One is The Accidental Renovator: A Paris Story, the armchair travel book about how I 'accidentally' bought the apartment after the heat wave in 2003 and, against all the best advice, insisted on renovating (think gutting!) it. I visit my apartment every year, but mostly live in Sydney and Melbourne Australia. I'm setting up a business model to provide an income stream for the Social Change Foundation (think child protection) charity I'm setting up. Otherwise, I love beautiful properties and places.

                  Why Paris Arrondissement 18:
                  I didn't want to be right in a tourist area, but rather in a place where Parisians hang out. This place provides the best of both because, if you turn right outside the apartment buiding, there's the tourist area of Montmartre across the big Boulevarde at the end of the park outside my window. If you turn left and go down the hill, there are no tourists at all (they're all heading up to Sacre Coeur)! this is where there are loads of fab restaurants, cafes and boulangeries - all frequented not by tourists but by locals. There's also a fresh food market outside the door, which you don't tend to get in tourist areas.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  You get to live like a local. The kitchen is superb and you'll want to cook in it. the proportions and aesthetic feel are to die for :)
