The comfortable and inviting residence is a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysees, and the apartment is half a block from the Latour Maubourg Metro Stop so you can be just about anywhere in the city in a matter of minutes. Around the corner you'll walk to the Army Museum Napoleon's Tomb, Rodin and Orsay Museums and cross the River to the Champs Elysees...

About Muriel Martin

I have been in the Real Estate business most of my professional life: Realtor in Colorado and renting my family properties in France since my expatriation in Denver, 20 years ago!

Muriel Martin purchased this condo in 1960

Why Muriel Martin chose Gros-Caillou

This residence, and the other one I rent in Burgundy, are family owned and well taken care of: that's where I grew up, spent my family vacations (and still does each summer) and have many fond memories!

What makes this condo unique

I take my family back to France every summer to visit our friends and French family! Paris is still our home, and we love to discover the new things that this city has to offer every year.

I am glad I can share this wonderful place with you!

The Bear loved her stay at this amazing Parisian apartment in the heart of the City of Lights! There could not be a better location. Just a short walk from the famous and charming open-air Rue Cler Market, the Eiffel Tower, the River Seine, Museum d’Orsay and several other famous attractions. The apartment was a block away from the Latour de Maubourg Metro stop which allowed easy access to anywhere in Paris including the Gare du Nord train station. Upon arrival, Fernando was at the apartment to check us in, show us the apartment, make sure we could access wi-fi and answer any questions we had about the area. Communication is key when staying at a Vacation Rental, and we had great communication with the owner even though we don’t speak French! Thank you so much for a lovely stay and the beautiful Parisian memories. xoxo Merci!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this apartment in the heart of Paris. It really is a great location. Good restaurants, grocery store, and transportation close by. It is close to the Eiffel Tower and right on the river. We took the hop-on-hop on bus boat since we did not have lots of time and it was great. The manager knew when we were coming and was looking out for us downstairs. The apartment even has a freezer in the refrigerator. I would recommend this as a place to stay in Paris!

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in an amazing location. Just minutes away from Rue Cler, great restaurants and cafes, the Seine River and the Eiffel Tower. The apartment has a nice, big balcony and a well-equip kitchen so you can cook all the fresh food you purchase at the Rue Cler market. It is in a great, safe neighborhood among lots of locals.

We stayed here in mid July and had a fantastic time. The apartment is very comfortable, well stocked, and in a perfect location. Within a one minute walk there are bakeries, restaurants, grocery store, etc. Around the corner is a metro station and taxi stop. We could not have asked for a better spot to be our home base to explore Paris.

My family had the absolute best 5 day vacation in Paris staying in your apartment. Fernando showed us around the apartment and gave us information how to get around as well as additional sights our kids would enjoy.

Its location was so convenient to walk to many of the sights and easy to go a block and catch the metro (We even ran into Fernando and his family on the metro). The local restaurants were of good value. We would love to stay again if we get to return to Paris :-)

Wonderful Time in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Great location within 10-15 minutes from the Eiffel Tower, and very close to subway / bus. Rue Saint Dominique had wonderful stores and restaurants. The property is well-maintained, safe, was accurately described and the both the owner and onsite manager were very easy to deal with. Renting the apartment was a much nicer option vs. two hotel rooms, given all the benefits of a full kitchen, washer and dryer and an opportunity to experience the neighborhood like a Parisian for a few days. Value wise, this also came in at a lower cost. My family of 6 had a great time in Paris, and would love to come back someday. Merci!
