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 on Sundays, 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.
Our family sought an authentic Parisian experience in both residential and location, and this apartment was perfect. We truly felt like we had stepped back in time with the décor and furnishings. Our concierge welcomed us at the door upon arrival and showed us the apartment as well as provide neighborhood recommendations for a variety of food experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Marais neighborhood and the Metro station at our doorstep made travel throughout the city easy (after studying the map rather intensely). A great stay for us and our adult son, who is the world traveler and explorer.
We really enjoyed the apartment. It was big enough for two couples and the location is good. Loved the furniture, windows and art. The housekeeping service was very good and all the principals were very nice and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this for a family or two couples. There really is nothing about the entire experience that I would change (except perhaps having to make the final payment in Euros instead of on a credit card or in dollars.) Great place to call home in Paris.
This apartment is truly wonderful. We had 4 people, and it gave us plenty of space to relax after some long days in the city. It is beautifully furnished and comfortable, with all of the conveniences of home. We loved the quick access to the Metro stop, and the location on the river and near Jardin des Plantes and Jardin du Luxembourg was so nice for our morning runs. There are grocery stores, pharmacies, cafes, restaurants, etc. within blocks. Mathias, the concierge, was extremely responsive and helped us arrange to store our luggage for a few days and have a driver meet us with the luggage at the train station on a tight schedule. The housekeeper was also delightful - with our limited French language skills, we communicated in Spanish and with charades! We could not have had a better place to stay while in Paris.
Thank you for a lovely holiday at the Proust Apartment. Our holday began with an introduction to the apartment by the concierge, who also set-up a beautiful welcome breakfast of fruit, cheese and croissants. The apartment is conveniently located and steps away from the Sully-Moreland Metro stop. The apartment was perfect as a home base for the week we vacationed in Paris.
The entire "Our Home in Paris" team did everyting they could to make our holiday a complete success. We look forward to staying in another "Our Home in Paris" property as travel plans will allow.
PERFECT! Location great, apartment very large and well equipped kitchen. First visit for my daughter-in-law and she loved it. Mark was great, and had all the answers to our questions. Would recommend. Have rented from Jim before and both apartments have been great.
Our short visit to Paris was made all the more enjoyable by the wonderful accommodations and concierge support provided before and during our stay.
The "Celestins" apartment was even better than the photographs implied with plenty of old world charm complemented by modern bathrooms (a walk-in shower!), good beds and a modern kitchen. The location is simply unbeatable with a view of the Seine, easy walking distance to Ile St. Louis and Ile de la Cite' and the metro outside the front door.
Concierge support was excellent and included help in planning the trip, arranging train station and airport transfers and support during our stay. We had high expectations for the eateries reccommended and were not disappointed.
