About the property

1 bdrm with 2 long single beds, lvrm with one double futon, large elevator.

Events of September 11th and United's bankruptcy caused me to take an extended (five-year) furlough from United Airlines' Paris base so I went home to San Diego and started renting my Paris apartment. That was the beginning of my vacation rental business and I never returned to United but I do return to Paris!

This 650 square foot one-bedroom apartment has the privacy of two bedrooms at the cost of a Studio apartment! The living room door closes; and occupants of each room have access to the toilet, bathroom, and kitchen without disturbing the others (important for when you first arrive and jet-lag makes for irregular sleeping hours).

There are extra long twin beds in the bedroom and a very comfortable, double-size, fold-down couch in the living room. (that's where my husband and I always sleep). The bathroom has a big soaking tub and a shower. Like all Paris apartments, the WC is separate from the bathroom so if anyone is taking a long shower or bath, others can still use the toilet.

This fifth-floor condo apartment has a modern elevator big enough for several people and their luggage! The all-glass living room wall opens wide onto a private balcony overlooking center gardens. It sits way off the main street so it's a very quiet location!

The Paris Apartment: There is absolutely no city noise.

The apartment is light and sunny -- with a view of lovely Victorian buildings. There is lot of closet space (rare in Paris) to keep the apartment orderly. There is a full-sized washer and dryer for doing laundry so pack light!

Everything you'll need to cook your own gourmet meals is provided. 'Go French' -- and get fresh food at nearby 'Poncelet', one of the largest daily outdoor markets in Paris. Or if you prefer a US-style grocery store (with peanut butter, cereal, etc.), Galleries Gourmand is also nearby.

My quiet, nicely furnished apartment has everything you'll need for a comfortable vacation, including an extensive library of guide books and maps of the city, metro, and bus system as well as books on culture, language and fiction/non-fiction books centered on France.

The Local Neighborhood: Enjoy an excellent neighborhood and a prestige apartment building on safe, upscale Avenue des Ternes -- close to lots of shops, bakeries, grocery stores and restaurants. Get fresh croissants and baguettes at the excellent boulangerie just down the street. Owner is American with French pastry-chef husband. Shop at Poncillet outdoor market, daily like the French, for fresh fruits and veggies, seafood, roasted or fresh chickens. I provide wheeled grocery carts.

This apartment is conveniently located within five minutes' walking distance of the Arc de Triomphe Charles de Gaulle Metro station -- where metro lines #1, #2, #6, and the RER-A will whisk you quickly to anywhere in the city.

Metro line 1 is the main tourist line, #2 will take you up to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur, #6 goes directly to the Eiffel Tower in two stops/4 nimutes.

RER-A's first stop is the Opera House Garnier.

Nearby Port Maillot has RER-C to go directly to Versailles.

Bus route 43 stops right in front of the apartment and will take you to my favorite, Musee Andre-Jacquemart. The 92 route is just a short walk.

About Nancy's Vacation Rentals

I was based in Paris working as a Purser/Flight Attendant for United Airlines for 5 years. After 9/11 I took a voluntary furlough and came back to San Diego and started renting out my Paris apartment to vacationers. It was such fun interacting with people, especially those going to experience Paris for the very 1st time! But I enjoy talking to the most seasoned Francofiles, too. I was hooked and started my own Vacation Rental business in San Diego - NancysVacationRentals dot com. Now I have 55 rentals but still take the time to return to Paris once a year to 'check on my property.' Someone has to do it! I'm happy to share my local knowledge with you.

Nancy's Vacation Rentals purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Nancy's Vacation Rentals chose Ternes

Describe why I bought a place in Paris? Are you kidding? It's the most beautiful city in the world and you would NEVER run out of things to see and do! Plus it's so fun to explore other parts of France after a week in Paris.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very quiet apartment in the middle of a bustling city. It's a great location on upscale, wide tree-lined Avenue des Ternes, near the Arc de Triomphe, which allows you to experience Paris like a local rather than as a tourist. Part of your Paris experience should be to shop at the local street market for the freshest of ingredients and and make delicious meals in your own apartment. You can get anywhere in the city, quickly and easily from the Metro and RER at Charles de Gaulle Etoile (Arc de Triomphe) and there is also easy and efficient non-stop bus service to and from CDG airport every half hour.

Location location

  • 5 of 5

Well situated, close to Metro and convention center, this apartment was perfect. Perfect for two persons. More would too small. Clean, tranquil, safe, well furnished, we recommand it. Maybe the only bemol, the heating system. Paris in november is cold and the heating system was not well distributed. But overall, it was a small detail. We love the location.

Worked really well for our needs

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was smaller than it looked in the pictures. It was also worn in some spots, but overall the space was in a convenient location and suited our purposes well. The small details were well managed which made it an easy and comfortable place to be.

Location, amenities, A++ proprietress = what's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

I feel so fortunate to have "stumbled" upon this property online -- I was about to put in a reservation via AirBnB but I am certain I made the better choice. Nancy was so helpful from beginning to end, facilitating immediate payment by phone for our arrival within two days, sending crystal-clear instruction for apartment access as well as advice on transportation from the airport, directions and where to go shopping and which mass transit options to take nearby. So I couldn't be happier with Nancy's services. The apartment itself is delightful -- clean, bright, airy, well-maintained, safe (secure building), well appointed (full kitchen, plenty of dishes and cookware, even a full-sized washer and dryer!), great balcony overlooking a quiet courtyard, and comfy beds. It is perfectly located, with many walking options and easy access to the Metro (we chose weekly Metro cards for 20 Euro per Sunday-Saturday, well worth it if you plan to move around a lot). There was ample space and privacy for my family (me + wife + 2 teens) in the apartment. I highly recommend this apartment!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time staying in this Paris apartment for four nights. The owner/agency provided excellent instructions, recommendations and follow up which made locating the apartment, checking in and out very easy (very professional). The unit was just as described in the listing and the owner provided all linens and laundry detergent as well. The apartment is an easy downhill walk from the Arc de Triomphe and the neighborhood was excellent with many nice specialty stores and restaurants within a block as well as a nice little grocery store (Fanprix) around the corner. It is the perfect location for sightseeing, close to Metro and RER stations. After visiting many parts of Paris, we had more of appreciation for the family oriented area where the apartment is located as we always felt safe there.
