Live as a local, with all international comforts, in a newly renovated architect designed, 32 square metre apartment, plus 8 meter balcony, (Caroline Hentschel DPLG),smack bang in the centre of Paris, near new and trendy rue Montorgueil (For those of you who have read 'Almost French'-by Australian author Sarah Turnbull- we've been unintentionally living the live version as a Franco-Australian couple in the same area of Paris).
Our apartment is easy to find being conveniently located within 1-3 minutes walking distance of 3 metro stations, including direct connection to Gare du Nord (Eurostar terminal) and also close to Chatelet/ Les Halles (direct connection to CDG airport) and a taxi rank is near by. There is even a bike place which has just opened up downstairs.
Once you arrive, you won't need to worry about transport because you can easily walk to the Louvres museum, the Georges Pompidou Center, the Marais area, Palais Royal and loads of Paris shopping bars and restaurants.
At the end of the day, it's easy to relax in our modern minimalistic light apartment, but still typically Parisian, with it's 18th century beams, which gives our (your) home a very cozy feeling. You've got all modern conveniences, highspeed internet (Apple G4) / free international phone to contact home, cable TV, DVD (all zones), etc (all listed below).
A feature is our garden balcony (with optional sail) where it is lovely to sit out and overlook all the roof tops of Paris with a nice glass of wine or with your 'café et croissants' in the morning (we're on the 5th floor - no lift - easy daily workout, save money on gym pass!).
Upon arrival,Breffni, Julien, Noella, or Vincent (who speak English!) will welcome you after your journey and be happy to answer any questions you may have. (They will then also 'be there for you 24/7' during your entire visit, should you have any further questions).
73 has been a perfect home for us (Australian classical singer/ music theater director and French journalist/ doco maker) and all our international friends and family...we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we have!

About the owner: Franco-Australian couple, Elizabeth and Albert Lecoanet lived 'the Parisian life' in 73 rue de clery 5 years together (13 years altogether for Albert) before they decided to do a total architect-designed renovation of the apartment in the summer of 2007, and move to New York City, and rent out their Paris home. The simple reason why they kept and rented their apartment in Paris, is because they have lived such a great Parisian local life, that they wanted to share this unique experience with fellow travelers. French born Albert is a TV journalist now working as a foreign correspondent for French TV in the USA. You may see him or his name on M6, France 2, Canal Plus, TF1, Arte or some of the cable channels. Albert is also a documentary filmmaker. Elizabeth (Liz) was born in Australia (Brisbane!) and is a singer, music theatre director, a teacher and a massage and sound therapist. She directed 3 musicals whilst living in Paris including Les Miserables (in French of course!) She also sang beautiful ancient music at the church St Eustache, just down the road from the apartment, where thanks to the rehearsal each week, she also learned to speak French. You can go and hear the Choir 'Les Chanteurs de Saint Eustache' each Sunday morning at 11am, (free). Today, Liz and Albert love, live and work in New York, and enjoy regular trips to France, Australia to visit their families and friends; and they also enjoy discovering America and other countries when the opportunities arise. 'Our apartment is for people who want to have a taste of what real life in Paris is like (except that we added all the 'non-French conveniences' like air conditioning, free international phone,etc.!).' We hope you'll love Paris in our home, as much as we did! Welcome to Peace and Light in the Heart of Paris!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Whilst we didn't purchase our Parisian home for a 'vacation rental', it was bought as a home to live in; it is located right in the heart of Paris and within walking distance to all the major 'tourist attractions'; for example, we are a 10 mins walk to the Louvres, 10 mins the other way to the Georges Pompidou Centre etc. More interestingly though, for us, is that the current local hot spot for Parisians, Rue MONTORGUEIL, is only 3 mins away from our apartment. The Montorgueil street is a pedestrian street filled with cafes, restaurants, bars and specialty food shops. Fine local French cuisine. Need I say more? This area is called Les Halles (or literally 'The Halls') and was the original market place of Paris (back in Roman times and up until the 70s!). When the car was invented, the small cobble stone street got all congested and the commercial markets moved out of the centre, however the Les Halles area kept its flavor and many fromageries, patisseries, and French specialties can be found in this area (including the Patisserie Stohrer dating back to 1750).
