About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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.

Wonderful Stay - Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

The property was gorgeous and right in the heart of the city. Within walking distance of many of the attractions, great cafe's and food markets. Our wonderful hosts were there for anything we needed. We truly enjoyed our stay in Jim's wonderful home.

The apartment is in the middle of all the action so it can be loud at times, however, the bedrooms are toward the back so when the windows are closed the noise level is minimal.

We hope to come back to Paris soon and would love to stay here again.

Fantastic apartment, hosts, location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in about a dozen VRBO properties in Paris over the past fifteen years or so, and all have been great experiences. Our recent (too brief) visit to Paris was the best property experience yet. Jim and Marc are simply wonderfully helpful, as well as being decent and kind people. The apartment is better than represented on the site -- beautiful decor, comfortable surroundings. We have stayed in a number of different Paris neighborhoods, but we are now very fond of Les Marais. We walked to great dining spots, museums, meetings. All in all, a five-star property.

Elegance fit for a King and his court!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Paris at this property. The location was magnificent, the entrance was wonderful, literally just a few steps away from the Sully Moreland Metro stop. The rooms were appointed in beautifully painted and art-hung walls with windows that opened to many balconies facing toward the Seine and the beautiful building across the street. The kitchen was very functional and modern and the dining room was great.

The bedrooms and baths were also well-appointed with very comfortable beds and bed linens, the shower and tub were excellent with plenty of hot, hot water. The elevator was an added bonus for me since I have had knee replacements and after walking around Paris all day, the last thing I wanted to face were more stairs, no matter how beautiful they are. It was also handy for luggage transport upon arrival and departure.

Marc, our concierge was like an angel sent from Heaven to take excellent care of all our needs. I cannot say enough good about our experience at this property and our stay in Paris in general. This was our fourth visit to Paris and if there is a fifth, we will stay here again. Thank you very much for a wonderful experience.

Great place. Well located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious for two couples. Elegantly furnished. Welcoming concierge. Literally 12 paces from the front door to the metro steps– I measured.

There is a warm welcome at the bistro about 100 m away along the Quai Celestin.
