Property description

Recently featured in the award-winning book, 'The Paris Vacation Apartment Guide' by Robyn Webb.

This 1 bedroom apartment has been renovated to a high quality (Dec. 2010) while retaining it’s original classic features -- marble fireplace, oak parquet, high ceilings with moldings, and full-length French windows with dual glass to ensure peace and quiet. It is 44 sq. meters (474 sq ft), and it's ideal location is just a 5 minute walk to the Seine!

This 2nd floor air conditioned apartment (with new elevator Apr 2013) is well laid out and tastefully appointed. The peaceful color scheme and carefully selected decor creates an inviting feeling of warmth, comfort and luxury. Each room is accessed from the main hallway. The salon is organized into separate areas: living room, dining area and open kitchen.

Living Room--

The living room is furnished with a comfortable sofa (opening to a high-quality queen-size bed) and a tufted ottoman on which to rest your feet or set a drink. Two large Louis XV-style armchairs flank the marble fireplace, creating a cozy conversation area or quiet spot to read, with ample lighting thanks to several lamps and beautiful crystal chandeliers. A flat screen TV with multi-zone DVD player are in a built-in unit, should you wish to catch the news on CNN or watch a favorite DVD from home. An iPod/iPhone speaker/charging dock is tucked away below the TV. A cordless phone with answering machine is provided, and includes free unlimited outgoing calls to over 100 countries, including the US and Canada. A safe is provided for your valuables.

Dining Area--

The weathered oak dining table and Louis XVI-style chairs seat four, and is located adjacent to a large window offering a prime view of the street below. The console table behind the sofa doubles as a computer/work station with plenty of easily accessible electric plugs and good task lighting. High speed wireless internet with unlimited access is provided for your convenience.

Kitchen--

The all new open kitchen is spacious, fully-equipped and a delight to cook in. The major appliances are hidden behind integrated cabinet doors. The kitchen has a large refrigerator/freezer, combination microwave/convection oven, 4 burner ceramic cook top, dishwasher, separate full-sized washing machine and dryer, and ample storage. Coffee maker, toaster, electric kettle, immersion blender, glassware, cutlery, utensils, dishes, pots and pans are furnished. An iron and ironing board are also provided.

Balcony--

Just off the living room is a walk out balcony with table and chairs that affords a birds-eye view over the wide intersection and it’s sidewalk cafés and boulangeries. Relax with a drink or pastry as you observe the changing colors of the sunset, or the bustle below as the neighbors shop, walk their children to school or head off to work.

Bedroom--

The stately bedroom is carpeted and features a wonderfully comfortable King size bed framed by a custom canopy that will make you feel like royalty. Two wall sconces and a crystal chandelier lend light and atmosphere. The bed is flanked by nightstands on each side, with an alarm clock and phone. The window overlooks a quiet courtyard and is draped with curtains to pull back for light or close to assure privacy. An armoire with plenty of hanging space (lots of deluxe wooden hangers) and drawers provides storage for your personal belongings.

Bathroom--

The spacious, modern bathroom features a double sink vanity, WC and a large enclosed shower. The color scheme is darker here – glass and ceramic tiles of medium and dark earth tones make this space feel intimate and sophisticated. Light sconces on the mirror provide perfect lighting for primping, and ceiling spotlights shine down the glass-tiled wall making it sparkle. The heated towel rack assures that the bathroom stays warm and that your towels are always toasty. An opaque window provides ventilation. There is ample space to store your personal items behind the touch-latch mirror and in the drawers and cupboards below the sink. A hair dryer is provided for you.

Security--

Access to the building is controlled by digicode. A 2nd security door accessed by key or interphone (not simply an easily-obtainable magnetic fob) adds another layer of safety and peace of mind. There is a safe in the apartment for keeping your valuables (you set your own passcode). All new electrical wiring in the apartment, 2 new smoke detectors, and a fire extinguisher.

Building--

Built in 1880, 6 floors, Haussman-style building. New 2 person elevator installed in April 2013. The common areas (entry, halls and stairway) were newly painted, tiled and carpeted in December 2013. All new electrical wiring throughout the building meets or exceeds all building and safety standards.

Transportation--

The metro station of Cardinal Lemoine (line 10) is steps from your front door and quickly takes you to many sights on the Left Bank – The Eiffel Tower, Invalides, Musée d'Orsey, the Cluny Museum, Saint Sulpice, Saint Germain des Prés, Le Bon Marché and the Grande Epicerie, and the Champ de Mars. Just one block away is a metro entrance for Place Monge (line 7). This convenient line takes you straight to the Right Bank with direct access to the Marais, Chatalet (where you can transfer to nearly every other metro and RER line), the Louvre, Opera Garnier and points north. The main Place Monge metro station is equipped with escalators (both up and down) for ease if you arrive via public transportation with luggage in tow, or just to be kind to your knees as you explore the city! Six bus lines crisscross the neighborhood, with bus 47 dropping you right at your front door (line 89 is a few steps away at the corner). Also very close is a Velib' bike station, if you'd like to rent a bike from which to see the city. Half a block away is an Autolib' car rental station.

Additional Amenities--

Our apartment manager provides many services for your comfort and convenience--personal welcome upon your arrival, concierge service with personalized recommendations, 24 hour emergency number, basic apartment supplies (toilet paper, facial tissue, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, coffee maker filters, salt & pepper, etc.), toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap), high quality linens (plenty of towels, pillows and blankets), and fluffy hotel robes and slippers for use during your stay. Mid-week cleaning is provided for longer stays (clean linens, vacuuming, etc.). They truly think of everything to provide you with a perfect holiday, and all of this is included in the rate -- no extra fees or taxes. Check in is 2:00 pm and check out is at 11:00 am.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: My husband travels to France occasionally for business. When he took me along on a trip to Paris we were hooked and now visit several times a year.

Why Paris Arrondissement 5:
We love the charm of the Latin Quarter! This apartment, in a typical 18th century Haussmanian building at the intersection of Rue Cardinal Lemoine and rue Monge, has such a convenient location and provides the best of both worlds – a traditional neighborhood where Parisians live and work, and a very central position from which to base a stay in Paris. All shopping necessities are available within a few steps: grocery store, pharmacy, excellent bakeries, a news agent, wine and cheese shops, organic grocer, post office and other fine shops. In addition, two open-air markets are within a short walk – Place Monge and Place Maubert – open on alternating days, making the purchase of fresh produce, flowers and other items possible six days a week. A host of other services, traditional restaurants, cafés, ATM, business center, dry cleaner, hair salons, florists, etc., are all to be found right in the neighborhood. Transportation options are also very good from here--being right on the line 10 metro and 2 minutes walk to the line 7. Also, there are lots of bus lines nearby to take you practically anywhere, and a Velib' bike rental station just around the corner. Just down the street is a new Autolib' station, where you can rent a fully electric car by the hour! Best of all, the apartment is located just a 5 minute walk to the Seine for our morning walk! The Pantheon is also 5 minutes away, as is the lively area of Place de la Contrescarpe and rue Mouffetard. Notre Dame or Luxembourg Gardens is an easy 10 minute stroll.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Air conditioner; King size bed; balcony; elevator
