Property description

90 square meters, non-smoking, no-pets centrally heated and fully air-conditioned, immaculate.

The apartment building
It is situated half a block from the Seine and there's a Vélib station right next to it. The Metro (Ligne 5) is exactly one stop away from Ligne 1 (which takes you through the Marais, the Louvre, the Rue de Rivoli, the Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, etc.) and one stop away from Ligne 10 (which takes you to the 5th and Odéon and St. Germain des Près ... all the way to Boulogne). Plus Ligne 5 takes you directly to the Gare du Nord (and Gare de l'Est), as well as to the Place d'Italie, which is a great center for Chinese and Thai food. There are tons of cafés around.

The apartment
Overlooking the Seine and the Yachting Harbour of Paris or 'Port de l'Arsenal', where a number of diverse types of boats are moored, the 90 sqm two-bedroom apartment is a few steps from the historical Place de la Bastille where you find the Opera de Paris. Boulevard de la Bastille faces the nautical entrance to the Canal St-Martin and all the waterways that connect it to Paris and the Seine.

The 'Port de l'Arsenal' is a *marina* in the heart of the city, really charming in a Parisian way and a wonderful place to walk, jog, have a café, picnic: there's even a park for young children there. Enjoy a cruise on Canal Saint-Martin leaving at the foot of the apartment ! Another wonderful green space nearby is the 'Coulée Verte' above the Viaduc des Arts that was featured in a recent film starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke.

The most central location in Paris
Within a short walking distance is the Royal Place des Vosges, the Marais, the Ile Saint Louis, the Picasso Museum, the Maison Rouge (latest modern art museum to open in Paris), art galleries, the “Rue de Lappe” and its many ethnic restaurants and pubs,
If you walk across the Austerlitz Bridge you find yourself directly in the 5th arrondissement with the Jardin des Plantes and its zoo (great fun for children), the Latin Quarter and its Open Air Sculpture museum.

When you arrive from Charles de Gaulle-Roissy airport, board RER B (regional fast train) stop at Gare du Nord. Hop onto line 10, in the direction of Place d'Italie for 8 stations; stop at Quai de la Râpée: the apartment is 25m away. It is also very close to 3 other metro lines and many bus routes taking you all over Paris. There are even direct buses from Roissy to Gare de Lyon!

You may want to go further afield to Versailles (via Gare d'Austerlitz), or Euro-Disney (via Gare de Lyon)! Ditto if you are using Paris as a base for exploring Europe, board a train from Gare de Lyon to go to the South of France, Italy, and Switzerland, from Gare du Nord (8 stations away) to go to Central London in exactly 2 hours.

Vacation Rental Amenities
A superb view is THE PLUS of the functional and entirely refurbished apartment located on the 6th floor of a late 19th century building (elevator, interphone security, concierge, armored door). It is full of English-language books and videos: children are more than welcome. With two south-facing windows looking over the Paris Yachting Harbour, the river Seine, the Pantheon and two east-facing rear windows looking over the private garden and a row of 19th century buildings the apartment is light, sunny and extremely quiet. But the best about it is that at night you will enjoy the unforgettable view on sparkling Eiffel Tower every hour for 10 minutes on the hour.

Another plus: this building has a real garden out back, which is fairly rare in Paris.

The apartment has two large bedrooms with ample storage space, one with a kingsize bed, the other with two twin beds transformable into a kingsize. The sofa in the living room transforms into a kingsize bed (rare in Paris) with a wonderfully firm mattress. All the beds are new, extra-firm and of prime quality. Central heating and reversible air-conditioning in all rooms, linen provided, towels provided, 4 ring stove, clothes dryer, dishwasher, freezer, fridge, microwave, oven, washing machine, fireplace, seating for 6 people, dining room seating for 6 people, 1 full bathroom with large Italian shower and additionaltoilet, plus second separate toilet, audio tape player, CD, DVD player,VCR, radio, stereo system, 2 TV sets (one with flat screen), video library for kids, lots of books in all sorts of languages, unlimited broadband internet access,wifi, garage (2 spaces), absolutely non smoking, pets not allowed, wheelchair inaccessible.

On a practical note, very near there are ATMs, inexpensive restaurants, small supermarkets, including the farmers' markets on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays where fresh local produce can be bought.

Vacation Rental Rates
Prices are for the apartment per week in euros all included.
Extra maid service and baby-sitting can be arranged. A 25% non-refundable deposit is required on booking (Paypal, wire).
Balance payable cash on arrival as well as a 1,000€ fully-refundable security deposit against damage (by check, in cash, in euros or in your own currency). The deposit is returned when the two sets of keys are handed back, provided you return the apartment in the same immaculate state as you received it and provided you do not smoke. If smoking occurs, the deposit will be kept in whole.

Regular changeover day is Saturday in season. We will accommodate other check-in dates where possible. Check-in normally 1pm, but if we can, we try to accommodate guests arriving on overnight flights from North America.

Check-out normally 10am to help same-day changeover cleaning. Special arrangements may be possible depending on other bookings. Luggage storage is possible if you arrive on an early morning flight or until you set out for the airport at night.

Location

100 Metres
Nearest Train
Gare de Lyon

Car: Not Necessary

Many good restaurants and cafes on Ile Saint-Louis and around Bastille, theatres, opera, ballet, wine and cheese and grocery stores, fascinating walking areas (my favorite, along the Seine at 6am on Sundays when it is 'no cars allowed'.)

The dollar is so strong, the euro so weak, there has never been a better time to travel to Europe ! Come enjoy the comforts of the apartment !

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: After travelling extensively, living and working in the US and Iraq, I have taught English in higher education institutions for years. I lost my husband in February 2012. Our 25-year-old twin sons live with me when they do not work abroad: Emmanuel is a cartoon animator and Jonathan is an IT engineer launching his own Internet start-up with two of his friends.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
The apartment is located on the 6th floor while we live on the 5th. So it is very easy to provide our guests with good service : it is very reassuring for them as well. Our housekeeper can also help every morning.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is uniquely central and enjoys a magnificent view over the whole of Paris. Dining in style with the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the distance is much appreciated by all our guests.
