Paris Arrondissement 7 apartment description
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION ...
a few steps to the bustling rue Cler Market yet on a calm, beautiful, 'typically Parisian' street! So much within a 5 minute walk ... most of central Paris is a pleasant walk from this safe convivial neighborhood.
Please visit our website (see link below) for lots more info and photos!
'Charming,' 'Perfect,' 'Comfortable,' 'Wonderful' are common comments from our new and returning guests (we can share emails). Our 2+ bedroom apartment is located in one of Paris’ most desirable neighborhoods – on the Left Bank in the heart of the safest neighborhod, the 7th Arrondisement. Here, within a few blocks of the Eiffel Tower and the huge gilded dome of Invalides, you will discover the “vrai” (real) Paris.
We completely renovated our apartment in July, 2005 to blend the best of old and new in the exceptionally well laid out 85 sq. meters (approx 950 sq feet). It is in a superbly maintained Art Deco building. The charming furnishings are mostly in the Art Nouveau/Art Deco styles and were chosen for their comfort too. Situated on the 2nd floor American (1st floor French), there is a wooden Deco elevator for easy access. There are only two apartments per floor, so the apartment is quiet and private. There are top quality appliances & furniture and all of the windows are new double paned, so it is incredibly quiet from outside noise!
Furnished with a mix of modern and antique furnishings, the apartment evoques the Art Deco / Art Nouveau periods. The 4 principal rooms:
* 'designer' living room with 3 windows on a charming street
* 2 large bedrooms with windows on the private courtyard
* spacious dining room with large windows on the street ... this room has a quality sofa bed and may be closed off as a lovely & private 3rd bedroom.
In addition, there is a modern, Separate and very well equipped Kitchen; a large dramatic entry; a long hallway to the private bedrooms area; a modern bathroom and a separate modern toilette.
Sleeping arrangements: The apartment sleeps up to 6 guests very comfortably and is comfortable to feed/entertain much larger groups.
* At the end of a long and pretty hallway you find the largest bedroom with a king size bed (this can also be made up as 2 twin beds), a fireplace, lots of closets, and a small Deco seating area.
* The second large bedroom, at the other end of the hallway, has a queen size bed, cable tv, a big closet, and a charming desk & comfy reading corner.
* The large bathroom and seperate wc are between these two bedrooms, which gives additional privacy.
* The high quality sofa in the large dining room opens into a comfortable double bed - The location (off the entry and away from the other bedrooms) and the lovely period doors, combine to make this another private, attractive and very comfortable space for 2 to sleep.
In addition to sleeping 6, the apartment is very comfortable for 6+ people to live ... i.e. relax, eat, cook, entertain ... to really “live” in Paris. Located in an elegant and fun neighborhood, you will find it unusually friendly (for Paris) with lots to do for all ages (very near to parks, transportation, cafes, museums, and friendly merchants).
The best of everything is literally at your doorstep! We maintain a list for you of the neighborhood's:
- charming shops to browse,
- wonderful and varied small restaurants & cafes (several are 'cuisine guide' listed - others are less advertised but also wonderful),
- world famous museums (including the D'Orsay, Rodin, huge new Branley and several smaller 'less known' ones),
- architecturally beautiful streets that invite you to wander,
- among the most famous street markets in all of Paris (and certainly among the best!) – rue Cler - is just around the corner and open 6 days a week! Several other good markets are a quick walk, should you want to compare and explore smaller/lesser known ones.
A short walk will take you along wonderful paths to Invalides and Napoleon’s tomb; the Eiffel Tower with it’s day and night spectacles; the Champs de Mars’ wonderful gardens, playground and 'Guignol' (marionettes); the Museums like the Rodin, D'Orday, Branly and others; the wonderful Quais along the Seine and over one of the bridges to the right bank and to the Champs Elysees (it is quite close too!); and so much more.
For times when you want to travel further, the Metro station Latour Mauborg is a short walk from the apartment (Ecole Militaire also very close). There are also several bus lines that stop right at the corners for those who are curious to travel Paris 'above ground'.
Location: Although surrounded by busy streets with lots to see and do, the apartment is located in a smaller building on a calm street – rue Duvivier. The cross streets are rue de Grenelle and rue du Champs de Mars – just parallel to the best market block of rue Cler. We hope to see you there soon!

ReviewsWrite a review
I stayed at this flat for two weeks in January and it is exactly as the owner stated. The apartment is very charming and is within walking distance to Rue Cler, La Tour Eiffel, Invalides and my most favorite Pont Alexandre III which connects to the Champs Elysees. The metro is very close where one can easily get to other parts of the city. The photos are spot on so there are no hidden surprises. It was very clean when we arrived and we had no issues. The owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions and even suggested places of interest. I've already mentioned this place to friends and plan on staying there again in the future. Samo Korean restaurant down the street from the apartment is one of the best Korean restaurants in the city and is highly recommended as well as the cafes on Rue Cler. Boulangerie Patisserie De La Tour Eiffel on Rue De La Bourdonnais has a great view of the Eiffel Tower and the food is very good. This was a great experience to visit Paris in the Winter and I would do it again in this apartment in a heart beat.

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We love Paris. We met and commited our lives together when living in Paris, so in our hearts it remains our home. It was always our dream to own an apartment in Paris - specifically in this part of the 7th - eventually we plan to move back there. This is a large enough apartment to really live in and be comfortable. In the meantime we spend as much time there as our busy lives permit (a few trips per year).
Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 7:
We know Paris better than most Parisians and bought our place here because it is in the perfect location and is comfortably laid out. It is right in the middle of everything that people (visitors as well as Parisians) want to do yet it is in a smaller building and on a quiet charming street! This is perhaps the most charming and authentic neighborhood in Paris but also family friendly (unusual) and quite chic. Within just a few blocks you will find many 'treasures' but transportation is closeby should you wish to venture farther than on foot. The neighborhood is wonderful, chic, friendly and has lots of things to do within a 5 minute walk. Until we can live there ourselves, we truly enjoy sharing our place with other travelers - we share our knowledge too. Unique location benefits: Rue Cler Market is 67 meters from our door! Champs de Mars with the Eiffel Tower (400 meters). Invalides and the Esplanade (200 meters). Pont Alexandre III - the most beautiful bridge anywhere (ask us about the club underneath). Museums with in about 5-15 min walk: Rodin, d'Orsay, Branley, Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Palais de Tokyo, Orangerie, Jeu de Paume, Louvre, Maillol, Trocadero ... there are actually more. And of course there are some of the best restaurants in the world ... including several top Michelin rated ones but if you know the 'bon adresses' all of them are expensive!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The location is one of the most perfect in Paris. The apartment is well described on our site - it is VERY well equipped because it is more than just another vacation rental. As for the location, aside from the above it is also well known that this is the safest neighborhood in Paris ... even for children, teens and women alone. Here are some other benefits that your group might enjoy: If you are a group of adults - there are incredible shops of all kinds, great restaurants (not all so expensive either but some are Michelin rated), cafes and clubs, museums and so much to do. If you are with children - the area is kid-friendly and there are 3 large parks within a few minutes walk (one even has marionettes and rides and is just under the Eiffel Tower!) If you don't enjoy walking far - everything that you need for an amazing experience is quite literally a few steps away (including, deservedly, one of the most famous markets in France - rue Cler), there is an elevator, and/or we are located between 2 Metro stops (2-3 blocks) plus the bus is at the corner. Sometimes we don't even leave our quartier for a week+ If you travel alone - this is a friendly neighborhood (contrary to many areas) and you will easily meet people in several local cafes, shops, restaurants who really enjoy chatting - you will not be lonely. We have so many ideas for you and we love to host! After you finalize a reservation and we know more about your group, we will give you very specific advice that you can incorporate into your daily planning.
