Paris Arrondissement 2 studio description

We have three studios in the same building, managed from our travel agency on the ground floor (attention: check-in outside of agency hours, which are M - Fr 9:30a - 12:30p, 2p - 6:30p, or Saturday 9:30a - 12:30p, carries an extra 50€ cost).

The studio described here, “Soleil,” occupies the front half of the first floor of our building (European system, so one flight up). “Citron,” another of our studios, occupies the back half, so together the two occupy the entire floor: ideal for a family.

A smaller one, 'Petit Nuage,' is on the 3rd floor.

The studio is the size of a large (for Paris) hotel room: 21 sq. meters / 225 sq feet. It has high ceilings, the exposed beams befitting its 700+ years, a kitchen area, and a detached, private bathroom, with a full tub and a shower attachment.

It is on the front of the building, with two large windows looking out on our semi-pedestrian street. The apartment is light and pleasant. Street noise is relatively low-volume (few cars, double-glazed windows). There is substantial pedestrian traffic, though, and on a Friday or Saturday night you may prefer to sleep with the windows closed.

It offers a 'French double' bed (120 cm, NOT queen size) and 2 chairs that fold out to single beds. It is really designed for a couple, or for up to three friends travelling together, but 4 can squeeze in if two share the double bed. A baby bed is available at no extra cost, if desired.

Wireless internet is available (and free).

We are located in the heart of the 2nd arrondissement's Montorgueil pedestrian neighborhood, Paris’ most enjoyable center city neighborhood. We are a block from a lively market street with a plethora of fresh products. Sidewalk cafés, excellent restaurants of all levels, and no fewer than 7 patisseries are all within 2 blocks. A short walk (15 minutes or less) brings you to the Louvre, the Pompidou Center, the banks of the Seine, Palais Royal, Notre Dame, the Marais, and many of the city’s other prime attractions.

Longer distances are equally easy to navigate: 9 métro lines, including direct lines to both airports, to 6 of Paris' 7 main line rail stations, and to the intercity bus station, are within five minutes’ walk.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: We've worked and lived in this, our favorite Parisian neighborhood, for 30 years.

Why Paris Arrondissement 2:
We are city people, and living in the medieval heart of one of the world's most beautiful, in a zone (relatively) free of cars, is a dream come true. These apartments used to be our home. With the arrival of our 2nd child, we needed more space, and we now live a couple of blocks away. We rent out our old places to help pay the rent on our new one.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Easily accessible to everything you could want to see in Paris. A huge swath of the city is reachable on foot, and convenient métro and bus routes reach the rest. Or, we offer 'Vélib' cycle rental cards for as little as 1€ / day. Visiting the city by bike is wonderful! In addition, the apartment's own pedestrian neighborhood bustles with markets, boutiques, cafés, gardens, and churches. It offers contact with a typically French way of life that is a dated stereotype in many parts of the country, but which is alive and well in our little village neighborhood.
