The 7th arrondissement is the most upper class area of Paris, and our apartment is located at the beginning of Avenue Bosquet near the Seine, at the corner of a small private pedestrian street, 7mns walk from the Eiffel tower, 10 mns walk Champs Elysees, 5 mns from metro station Alma Marceau and 1 mn walk from RER (same as metro but faster) “Pont de l'Alma”: it goes straight to Versailles or le Musée d'Orsay. The metro is the one which goes to big shopping stores...
One taxi station just downstairs and a lot of busses direct to all railway stations, big department stores (Le Printemps/Galeries Lafayette), Montparnasse tower, Saint Germain des Prés, Trocadéro… + 1 bike station downstairs!
NEIGHBOURHOOD/RESTAURANTS (better to book a few days in advance ):
The neighbourhood is residential and 4mn walk from the really nice and famous pedestrian street rue Cler where all the food markets, shops and cafés are: You will love it!!! (see on Google map); Even closer, you have rue Saint Dominique where you have a lot of clothes shopping. Several bakeries are very close especially the one Avenue Rapp, just in front of our street, so it’s very practical for buying croissants and baguette in the morning.
Next to the closest bakery (above), you have a very good Italian restaurant, and another very good restaurant with French specialities (tête de cochon and so on...), good quality, not too expensive (menu approx. 35€)
In the same block, you have “le Café de l’Alma”, the most fashion café of the area, but quite expensive and quite posh (snob), but funny to watch people and impressive cars…you can only take a coffee instead of having a whole meal!
And –where I like to go only for the spot because it's not very good and expensive - the restaurant called “Les Ombres” at the top floor of the Museum of Quay Branly (Tribal Art, just one street away from our apartment). It’s unusual, there is a wonderful view on Eiffel tower, the Seine River, and Paris.
In the same style but far away, do not miss restaurant “Georges”, top floor of Georges Pompidou museum (Beaubourg), just for an orange juice at the top floor terrace outside.
Top floor restaurant near our home just across the river, avenue Montaigne “Maison Blanche”, very nice terrace outside, view on the river…
Try also the “1728 restaurant”, rue d’Anjou, 75008, inside is fabulous, XVIII° century, fireplace…
And recently, I have booked for guests coming 2 restaurants for them: “Spring” and “Bones” with opened kitchens but I never went there personally!
In conclusion, our street and the streets nearby are calm which is great but very close you will be able to find everything for your daily life and a true Parisian way of life.
