Paris Arrondissement 14 apartment description

SPACIOUS LOFT (54 sq meters) ON A PRIVATE COURTYARD

Formerly an artist's atelier with an enormous window on the north wall, this is our cherished pied-a-terre which, as retired teachers with flexible schedules, we are pleased to share with guests on a long or short term basis. We are located in a private courtyard at the end of a cobblestone street just off Place Basch, the bustling heart of the XIV arrondisement (once described by the NYTimes as the best kept secret in Paris).
Entry to the courtyard is protected by a digicode and gardienne; we are on the second floor but, with double volume ceilings, this is the equivalent of a fourth (with elevator !). The exposure is north/south with light as a constant from the north window and from two windows on the second level facing south. On the loft's first level: a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area that seats six people easily, comfortable couches, an entry with ample closets. On the second level: the studio area with a single bed, desk and chairs; adjoining is the bedroom with double bed, ample closets, and the bathroom with basin, WC and large shower. Here too, ample closets!
All linens, towels, etc. are supplied; the kitchen is completely equipped with microwave and fan ovens, washer/dryer, refrigerator, halogen stovetop and all cooking equipment. Air conditioning in the form of a reversible ceiling fan recently installed.
A TV set, a printer/scanner are provided as is a free ADSL connection and WiFi, free telephone calls to land lines in the United States and Europe; all utilities included; maid service of 4 hours twice monthly included in stays of 4 weeks or over.
A two-minute walk from the front door brings one to the main north-south metro line (#4/Porte d’Orleans-Porte de Clignancourt), across the street are four bus lines (#38,68, 62 & 28) putting all of the city- including its major research institutions - within easy reach.
There are three supermarkets in the immediate neighborhood plus a number of excellent specialty shops; an award-winning bakery has just opened across the square and Rue Daguerre where shopping is always a pleasure, is a five minute walk away. There is also an open market twice weekly on the square in front of the Mairie du XIVeme.
The joy of the 14th Arrondisement is that it retains its strictly Parisian flavour with reminders of its artist-studded past still hidden away in its narrow streets, its many impasses, its cobble-stone alleys. For walkers, Saint Germain des Pres, the Luxembourg Gardens,the Latin Quarter, Montparnasse are an easy 20 minutes away and all major museums - the Louvre, the Musee d’Orsay, Cluny, etc. - a direct and pleasant bus or Metro ride. For joggers there is an easy run to the Parc Montsouris.
For more information about the apartment or the area, please don't hesitate to contact me; I'm delighted to be of help in any way possible.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 14:
                      Ours is not strictly speaking a vacation rental. It is instead our much-cherished pied-a-terre in the city that above all others we love and where we feel totally at home. Unfortunately for us, we can make use of it for limited periods throughout the year and for this reason are delighted to share it with guests who already know or are about to discover what a joy a period in Paris can be.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      About the apartment itself, I love the compactness of it together with the illusion of ample space occasioned by the double volume of the ceiling and the light from the floor-to-ceiling north window. About the area, I love the feeling of being in a truly authentic part of Paris with everything close at hand to make the everyday part of Parisian living (shopping, bars, bistros, cinemas, parks, etc.) easy but with all of Paris within quick access by foot, by Metro - a two minute walk away - by bus of which there are five lines immediately across the street.
