Paris Arrondissement 3 apartment description

This light-filled, two-bedroom, two-bath apartment is perfectly located near the historic Place des Vosges. We completed an extensive renovation in December, 2006, and everything - from floor to ceiling and every point in between - has been thoroughly updated and maintained to a very high standard.

Tournelles2 pairs wonderful modern design with classic features reflecting the building's XIX century roots, and succeeds in being both elegant and comfortable. The apartment's parquet floors, high ceilings, tall windows, and beautiful moldings are lit by fabulous and fun chandeliers in the entry, kitchen, and living areas, and warmed by dramatic floor-to-ceiling draperies. It has been decorated and equipped thoughtfully, with many conveniences and amenities. Please read our guest comments to see how others have enjoyed this apartment.

The apartment: Tournelles2 has a wonderful layout (see photos below), with well thought out public and private areas. The light streams in from two sides through tall French windows, highlighting the openness of the sleek and well-equipped kitchen, spacious dining area, and inviting living room. The two bedrooms, each with en suite baths, are positioned for privacy. Classic modern furniture is balanced by original fabrics and colorful art work. And, when night falls, the lovely lighting and furnishings provide incentive to dine in - even though the area’s many wonderful cafes and restaurants will beckon.
Tournelles2 is on the first floor French (second floor American), easily accessible by a wide and gently curved staircase. It, of course, comes with every amenity - flat screen TV with cable, DVD, phone with free calling to 28 countries, washer/dryer, free WiFi, heated towel racks, etc. We have also equipped Tournelles2 with a laptop computer so you do not have to lug yours along.

The amenities: In addition, the apartment comes with its own off-site manager, a wonderful and knowledgeable Parisian fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian. In addition to making sure Apartment Tournelles2 is ready for your arrival with fresh flowers, coffee, a bottle of wine, water, milk and other staples, our Parisian host can assist you with any questions about the apartment.

Le Marais: The neighborhood: Tournelles2 is in the midst of the Marais, one of Paris's most historic, most beautiful, and most desirable neighborhoods. From French history to French chic, the Marais has it all. The Marais is also a gourmet's delight—the apartment is near several of Paris’ best open air markets and specialty food stores, and within easy walking of a wide range of dining choices. To help you get acquainted, Apartment Tournelles2 is equipped with numerous guidebooks and maps, as well as information on our favorite places to shop, eat, and sight see in the neighborhood. We provide a complete binder with directions on how to use all of the appliances, lots of neighborhood resources, and general Paris information.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Two San Francisco families own this beautiful apartment and its adjacent 'sister'. One family has two youngl children. We traveled to Paris in the winter of 2006 to research buying property, and came home 10 days later as Paris apartment owners. Our dream is to live in Paris, and having these apartments get us one step closer to that. We renovated, decorated, and equipped these apartments based on our prior experiences with vacation rentals in the US and Europe, and hope that you will enjoy all of the amenities and small touches that we have provided. We travel to Paris as often as we can to make sure the apartments stay in top shape. Our goal is to give you a wonderful place to stay, and have you love Paris as much as we do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 3:
                      We love the is central to everything, yet retains a neighborhood feel. We love walking out the door and being steps away from fabulous bakeries, restaurants, museums, and great shopping. Paris is a great walking city, and our apartment provides easy access to so much of it. We also love the location because the Paris Metro (subway system) is so close and so easy to use. We also love the Marais because of its history and diversity...from the elegant Place des Vosges to rue des Rosiers' Jewish delis to rue des Archives' gay friendly bars and stores---everyone can feel at home in the Marais.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Some of our favorite things to do revolve around cooking and eating! We love being just across the street from the twice-weekly Bastille farmers market, and within easy walking distance to two other historic markets on rue des Bretagnes and at Place d'Aligre. And we can never stay at our place and not stop for a meal at Chez Janou, a block away, making sure we save room for their incredible bowl of chocolate mousse! We also love that a short walk takes us to and across the Seine, to Notre Dame and the Left Bank, and never get tired of window shopping along rue des Francs Bourgeois' chic boutiques,or walking under Place des Vosges' magnificent arches. Our other favorite past time is exploring Paris' various neighborhoods or arrondisements. The fact that we're so close to the 2nd, 4th, 10th, 11th, and 12th facilitates our 'expeditions.' As in our home city, San Francisco, it is the neighborhoods away from the tourist areas that give one a great perspective on the city and its people---and, just like San Francisco, the best food at the best prices are found in the neighborhoods!
