About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, 2 toilets (Sleeps 6)
The apartment building is situated half a block from the River Seine and there's a Vélib station right next to it. The Metro (Ligne 5) is exactly one stop away from Ligne 1 (which takes you through the Marais, the Louvre, the Rue de Rivoli, the Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, etc.) and one stop away from Ligne 10 (which takes you to the 5th and Odéon and St. Germain des Près ... all the way to Boulogne). Plus Ligne 5 takes you directly to the Gare du Nord (and Gare de l'Est), as well as to the Place d'Italie, which is a great center for Chinese and Thai food. There are tons of cafés around.
Overlooking the Seine and the Yachting Harbour of Paris or 'Port de l'Arsenal', where a number of diverse types of boats are moored, the 90 sqm two-bedroom apartment is a few steps from the historical Place de la Bastille where you find the Opera de Paris. Boulevard de la Bastille faces the nautical entrance to the Canal St-Martin and all the waterways that connect it to Paris and the Seine.
The 'Port de l'Arsenal' is a *marina* in the heart of the city, really charming in a Parisian way and a wonderful place to walk, jog, have a café, picnic: there's even a park for young children there. Enjoy a cruise on Canal Saint-Martin leaving at the foot of the apartment ! Another wonderful green space nearby is the 'Coulée Verte' above the Viaduc des Arts that was featured in a recent film starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke.
The most central location in Paris
Within a short walking distance is the Royal Place des Vosges, the Marais, the Ile Saint Louis, the Picasso Museum, the Maison Rouge (latest modern art museum to open in Paris), art galleries, the “Rue de Lappe” and its many ethnic restaurants and pubs,
If you walk across the Austerlitz Bridge you find yourself directly in the 5th arrondissement with the Jardin des Plantes and its zoo (great fun for children), the Latin Quarter and its Open Air Sculpture museum.
When you arrive from Charles de Gaulle-Roissy airport, board RER B (regional fast train) stop at Gare du Nord. Hop onto line 10, in the direction of Place d'Italie for 8 stations; stop at Quai de la Râpée: the apartment is 25m away. It is also very close to 3 other metro lines and many bus routes taking you all over Paris. There are even direct buses from Roissy to Gare de Lyon!
You may want to go further afield to Versailles (via Gare d'Austerlitz), or Euro-Disney (via Gare de Lyon)! Ditto if you are using Paris as a base for exploring Europe, board a train from Gare de Lyon to go to the South of France, Italy, and Switzerland, from Gare du Nord (8 stations away) to go to Central London in exactly 2 hours.
A superb view is the plus of the functional and entirely refurbished apartment located on the 6th floor of a late 19th century building (elevator, interphone security, concierge, armored door). It is full of English-language books and videos: children are more than welcome. With two south-facing windows looking over the Paris Yachting Harbour, the river Seine, the Pantheon and two east-facing rear windows looking over the private garden and a row of 19th century buildings the apartment is light, sunny and extremely quiet. But the best about it is that at night you will enjoy the unforgettable view on sparkling Eiffel Tower every hour for 10 minutes on the hour.
Another plus: this building has a real garden out back, which is fairly rare in Paris.
The apartment has two large bedrooms with ample storage space, one with a kingsize bed, the other with two twin beds transformable into a kingsize. The sofa in the living room transforms into a kingsize bed (rare in Paris) with a wonderfully firm mattress. All the beds are new, extra-firm and of prime quality. Central heating and reversible air-conditioning in all rooms, linen provided, towels provided, glass ceramic cooktop, clothes dryer, dishwasher, freezer, fridge, microwave, oven, washing machine, seating for 6 people, dining room seating for 6 people, 1 full bathroom with large Italian shower and additional toilet, plus second separate toilet, audio tape player, CD, DVD player,VCR, radio, stereo system, flat screen TV set, video library for kids, lots of books in all sorts of languages, unlimited broadband internet access,wifi, garage (2 spaces), absolutely non smoking, pets not allowed, wheelchair inaccessible.
On a practical note, very close by there are ATMs, inexpensive restaurants, organic vegeterian restaurants, small supermarkets, including the farmers' markets on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays where fresh local produce can be bought.

Car: Not Necessary
Many good restaurants and cafes on Ile Saint-Louis and around Bastille, theatres, opera, ballet, wine and cheese and grocery stores, fascinating walking areas (my favorite, along the Seine at 6am on Sundays when it is 'no cars allowed'.)
Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: I work in higher education (university professor) and am also involved in teaching French to the refugees from war zones in Paris I lost my husband in February 2012. I have 28 year-old twin sons. Emmanuel is a cartoon animator working in Kilkenny, Ireland. Jonathan is an IT engineer and the CTO of a new promising French start-up, Trusk.
Why the Owner Chose Quinze-Vingts, Paris, France:
The apartment is located on the 6th floor (lift). We ourselves live onsite on the fifth floor. So it is very easy to provide our guests with good service : it is very reassuring for them as well.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is uniquely central and enjoys a magnificent view over the whole of Paris. Dining in style with the Eiffel Tower twinkling in the distance is much appreciated by all our guests.
