This fantastic 2-bedroom apartment is in Quartier Martyrs, a real French neighbourhood. It is a clean, well-equipped property, ideal for a young family and best of all it is, as the French might say, à deux pas from rue des Martyrs, of which the New York Times said in a recent article, there is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.
Actually, this is better than the other apartments, because in this apartment each of the two bedrooms is off the street and onto cool and quiet courtyard areas. A quiet night's sleep, the benefits cannot be overestimated!
The property is located at number 6 rue St Lazare, at the junction of rue St Lazare, rue des Martyrs and rue Notre-Dame de Lorette. If you stand at the bottom of rue des Martyrs and look North, you can see up to the basilica of Sacré Coeur, one of Paris’s most famous landmarks.
This apartment is right behind Notre-Dame de Lorette Metro station and within two minutes of leaving the front door, you can be on the platform on the number 12 Metro line.
The Metro is the fastest way of getting about the city, although the buses are also very good. Paris is small enough, that most of the time you can simply walk to almost wherever you want to go. To make it easy for you, I have walked the city and can tell you now that you can reach the apartment by walking downhill from Gare du Nord in around 15 minutes. You can also walk right to Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann in 15 minutes and be at the Opéra Garnier in the same time. Of course, the other Grand Magasins of Paris are right nearby too. Once you are at the Opéra, it is not far to the Louvre and if you are at the Louvre, you could easily wander over the Seine and down into St Germain des Près.
You might stop off on the way to look in the many interesting little shops, cafés and bars on the way. You might spend your 15 minutes walking to the great brasserie Mollard for dinner. The Time Out guide for Paris has quite a few recommendations even closer to the apartment, including one Chez Jean, which is just two doors away.
Frankly, you may never wish to leave the ninth. It is a fantastic neighbourhood that wants for nothing. Traditional French boucheries, traiteurs, boulangeries and patisseries are all vying for your business, not to mention the bars, café's and restaurants. The area has its own website, which is in French only, a link which can be found on my main website for the property.
The double living and dining area is spacious and bright, with amenities including Wifi high speed internet, a 32 inch widescreen TV with digital channels including CNN and BBC, DVD player, and a stereo with CD Player, which plays mp3 CDs and has a special cable to connect in your iPod. Tucked in a corner is a proper desk for if you really need to work. The seating area contains leather club armchairs and a top grade sofa-bed that sleeps 2 and converts with no effort at all.
The dining table and chairs can seat six in comfort. After all, you will want to dine properly with all that great produce on your doorstep.
