The front bedroom, with its grey marble, decorative fireplace, has a large queen-sized bed, a Louis XVI chest of drawers, a small side table and two directoire armchairs. The walls are in two shades of grey with panels of hand-painted wallpaper from Zuber with an early 19th century Roman scene in grisaille. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite marble bathrooms; the front bedrooms bathroom is fitted with white arabescato marble and the large shower and sink are fitted with fittings designed by Arne Jacobsen for Vola. The front bathroom has no toilet, but there is an extra one next to the dining room.
The second bedroom can be communicated by a small, shared dressing room/closet, or by a separate entrance to the left of the main entrance hall. It has two single beds, that can be joined or separated as needs be. It is furnished with a large original 19th Century oil painting, a Louis XVI chest of drawers and its en-suite bathroom is furbished with grey/black marble and white marble arabescato floors. It has a full bath with headrest and shower fitting. It is also equipped with a suspended toilet and marble sink.
To the left of the main entrance hall is the dining room, from which you have a wonderful perspective view over the whole living area of the apartment. It is furbished with black and white decorative floor-tiling, an empire chandelier, a collection of original 18th century engravings of maps, a beautiful Mahogony Empire table and six Biedermeyer chairs.

A great place and everything you need in Paris........
Got a chance to stay at this luxury apartment and what a location and what a find. Definitely French and definitely a perfect way to stay in the city. Travelled with my grownup daughters and wife. The place if perfectly located and you can walk or subway it to all major tourist attractions. The place is a quiet and well appointed place that we all hated to leave.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Régis Maurin and myself (Jean-Paul Morrel-Armstrong, although most people call me John Armstrong) set up a business renting out 'Special Apartments' in Paris, which we manage for investors in Paris. We have been doing this for the last seven years, buying apartments for investors and then renovating them, decorating them and renting them out. Régis worked in the hotel industry for many years and I have worked in publicity and fashion. I am presently working on a internet guide of Paris for English speakers.
Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 2:
Last year we decided to buy our own apartment for vacation rental, in order to offer our guests a unique Parisian experience in a luxurious atmosphere in the very heart of the city center, near to all the most important touristic and shopping attractions. We also really enjoyed renovating and decorating this apartment which previously housed offices.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Location: here you are perfectly situated to visit all the major attractions of the city of lights. Luxury: we have made an effort to equip the apartment with the highest quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings. There is beautiful original artwork and antique objects but the atmosphere is still relaxed and comfortable. Modernity: The kitchen and bathroom is equipped with state-of-the-art equipments and you are connected to the world with hi-speed internet, unlimited telephone to many countries and cable television with a Bose home cinema system.
