Property description

If you want to discover Paris by foot, this is the place to be!

Our beautiful architect-designed apartment lies in the very heart of the city at Châtelet (1st Arrondissement). It is located on the top floor of an eighteenth century listed building on a quiet leafy street opposite one of the city's most romantic flower markets on the banks of the river Seine.

A ten minute stroll in any direction takes you to some of Paris's most famous landmarks. Wander south to the Ile de la Cité and Notre-Dame, east to the Hôtel de Ville, north to the Centre Pompidou and west to the Louvre.

The bright and airy apartment has stunning views over central Paris. It has been simply modernised retaining its historic features and its quirky 'artist's garret' feel. However it is also extremely comfortable and well equipped.

The living area opens onto a south facing balcony. It has an inviting sofa area with bookshelves, satellite televison and wireless broadband. We often stay in the apartment and it is full of interesting books, DVDs and CDs which you are welcome to use during your stay.

We love gathering around our big oak dining table and there is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need to wine and dine. The view from the sink of the twinkling river at night certainly takes the edge off washing up!

Both bedrooms are drenched with natural light and have French windows which open onto small balconies. The double beds have extremely comfortable Dunlopillo mattresses and so do the twin beds. There is also plenty of storage space.

The bathroom has a good power shower and heated towel radiators.

If like us you are passionate about food then this is a great part of the city to base yourself in. One of the country's oldest and most loved gourmet food markets on Rue Montorgueil is a short walk away. Below the apartment is one of the best boulangeries in Paris. There are masses of places to eat within five to ten minutes walk away...from lively sidewalk restaurants to haute cuisine.

The apartment is a home from home for us and we hope it will be the same for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are an Anglo American Academic family who live in London but met at Stanford as Grad students. We have spent sabbaticals in the States and Paris and have by now grown to a family of 5 daugters and 11 Grandchildren--all of whom have spent some time in Paris and in this apartment. So we share it with you as house guests- albeit paying- but we leave everything ready for the stay of friends, not commercial tenants.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 1:
It is surrounded by beautiful buildings and the history of Paris envelopes you in every direction. It is quiet, comfortable and easy to live in. The neighbourhood is very safe and the little local restaurants excellent. A taxi stand, the metro and buses are all within a block: the River Boat is further away- two blocks at Pont-Neuf!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
All rooms face South with French windows and small balconies. We are not overlooked and sky lights in the bathroom and hall help fill the apartment with light. We have architects in the family so you will find a lot of thought has gone into the design and the details. Our favourite view is watching the boats on the Seine from the kitchen sink, but the views of Ste Chapelle and Hôtel de Ville are also hard to beat. Most of all, coming to our apartment allows us to become Paris residents with the freedom to construct a daily routine according to whim without restriction but with all essentials laid on.
