This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and spacious apartments in Paris, in a stately renovated Haussmannian building of the Napoleon III era (1850's to 1870's ), which is adjacent to the river Seine, just across the water from the Ile St Louis.
Enter from the street through heavy wrought iron and glass doors, and take the marble and carpeted stairway (or elevator) to the second floor, where huge carved wooden doors open into a spacious, elegantly panelled entry foyer, then into the first of two salons (living rooms), filled with warm antiques, art and oriental rugs. The second, larger salon has a marble mantel, comfortable sofas and chairs, numerous cozy places to settle in for reading or conversation and a huge flat screen TV.
And there's more - a large comfortable, separate dining room decorated with a magnificent Louis XIII cabinet, a long corridor leading to two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large, renovated, eat-in kitchen, and a laundry room.
And location? Couldn't be more perfect. Via subway (metro) - you can be in the Louvre in about 6 minutes, the Opera Garnier and Grands Magazins (department stores) in 10, or go by foot in about 30. And now, the highway along the Seine is closed to cars, and you can walk or bike along the river all the way from your apartment to the Alexander Bridge and Grand and Petit Palais, then on to the Eiffel Tower if your energy permits.
We include a wonderful CONCIERGE who meets you on arrival, and is available 24/7 should you need anything, including translations, restaurant reservations and reserving incredible private tour guides. For an additional fee, they can also arrange for private CHAUFFEUR pick up at the airport or train station and/or return at the conclusion of your trip.
This is truly a grand apartment, beautifully decorated and maintained, very large (about 150 square meters), and you will feel as if you are living among the Parisian aristocracy -because you are!
And one more word about this magical place: SECURITY. It is in the fourth arrondissement which is a very safe neighborhood, directly across the street from the offices of the famous Republican Guards, who you will occasionally see in full military dress on horseback! It has a video surveillance system in the lobby, as well as on site live- in Concierge.
