Paris Arrondissement 7 condo description

Stay in the exclusive heart of Paris in this perfectly situated apartment. Compare its 55 square meters (600 square feet) with the 20-35 square meters of other apartments. Rent is charged in US dollars, an approximate 30% savings for similar prices in euros. The apartment is one flight (17 stairs) up from the lobby/street level) of a secure, well-maintained residential building in an embassy area. The 7th Arrondissement is home to the Invalides, Eiffel Tower, Rue Cler, and Musee d'Orsay, as well as great shops. We are one block from the Rodin Museum, and a 2 minute walk to the Metro (Varenne, line 13). With a double-sized futon in the living room and a queen bed in the spacious bedroom, we limit occupancy to 3 persons. There is a $100 weekly surcharge for the 3rd person. The apartment is NOT available for party groups and is NOT handicapped accessible because of the stairs.
Everything you need is here, from a fully furnished kitchen to videos, music, France (and Paris) guidebooks, maps, and French-English dictionaries, books and board games. The American style bathroom (toilet and shower/sink in one room) is large by Parisian standards and includes a bathtub, portable hairdryer and heated towel bar. You will find electric converter kits and adapter plugs in the apartment for your use.

There is no A/C but we have 2 standing fans. There is a clothes washer in the kitchen but NO DRYER. A housekeeping and laundry fee of 120 Euros must be paid in addition to the rent (mandatory).

There is a full service grocery, bank, bakery and pharmacy within 1/2 block. Within a 2-block walk you will see the Eiffel Tower which sparkles at night. The Eiffel Tower and Rue Cler are about a 15-minute walk. The nearest Metro stop is the Varenne stop on the #13 line (right around the corner) where VELIB bikes (Paris's bicycle commuting public service) are parked, so you can rent a bike for an hour and return it at this or any other VELIB stop. We have a personal assistant who is available for your special needs (at an hourly or per-job rate) for making reservations, translating, meeting you at the airport, stocking the refrigerator and other types of tasks. His minimum charge is about 35 euro.
The furnishings are good quality and in good condition; we care for this apartment as a home, not as a rental property. We expect you will do the same.

We have a secure internet connection (ethernet cord is in the apartment -- just plug in to your laptop and go!) and also WIFI. (WEP code required and is provided with confirmed reservations.)

THE MINIMUM RENTAL PERIOD IS 1 WEEK. You can stay fewer than 7 days, but the minimum rental payment is based on a 7-night stay. The owner will not respond to requests for short stays (weekends, long weekends, etc.) Ask us about discounts for longer term stays (more than a month). We do not discount the rent over holidays, including school holidays, or for stays less than 2 weeks.

Here are some comments from recent guests (as written in our guestbook):

'We had an absolute great and romantic time. We fell in love with the French culture. Living in your apartment in the neighborhood made us shift our thoughts and behaviors to being Parisian...The trip was a transformative experience for us -- even at 65!'

'This has been the perfect Paris home for us...very well located as we roamed the city.'

'What a location and how nicely you've appointed it with comforts of home.'

'We walked everywhere from this great apartment; can't wait to return.'

'This was the most authentic way to experience Paris and we could not have asked for a better home!'

'Your apartment has made our trip to Paris very special, such a great location to get around for first-timers.'

SPECIAL OFFER! If you are going to Vienna, Austria, book 'Sonata' apartment, a spacious and gracious 860 square foot apartment sleeping 6 in a historic building downtown. Sonata's owner offers a $50 discount for renters of my Paris apartment who book with him within a year of rental in Paris! I've been there and can vouch for its elegance and convenience and the hospitality of Christian, the owner. See other Vienna apartments at www.elegantvienna.com. Tell Christian that Lee sent you!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: The owner lives in Arlington, Virginia and loves Paris and this apartment. She keeps a tidy home, and welcomes guests who will treat the home carefully and respect the premises. In the apartment you will find guidebooks and most of the amenities you'd expect in a lived-in home. It's a perfect base for exploring Paris.

                      Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 7:
                      One never tires of Paris. There is always something new to see or do. The museums keep drawing us back and the street life and cuisine is unparalleled. Besides, so many international flights stop in Paris that it is easy to spend a few days here en route to somewhere else.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Close to museums, restaurants, and all the gorgeous architectural monuments of Paris, but in a secure and relatively quiet embassy area. No long commutes to get anywhere in the city!
