About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Juliette's 725 s.f. can accommodate from 1 - 6 people (5 adults, maximum) and is best suited for a romantic retreat, a 'girls' getaway, or a small family. With its 'open' floor plan, it does not provide absolute privacy; if that is what you require, please contact us and we may be able to offer alternative accommodations.
Originally constructed in 1652, renovations were overseen by an award-winning French movie set designer; virtually every element is custom, from the 17th century hardwood floors to the hand-painted Renaissance era beams and exposed stonework. Nestled between the Left Bank (Latin Quarter) and Right Bank (the hip Marais district), our little 'island on the Seine' enchants with its narrow, cobblestone-lined streets filled with cafes,art galleries, gourmet restaurants, patisseries, chocolatiers and elegant boutiques selling antiques, traditional produce and fine foods and flowers. The 'Ile' is also home to the world famous glacier (ice cream purveyor) Berthillon, nearby. It is a five-minute walk to Notre Dame, and a short Metro ride (or walk) to every major tourist attraction and shopping area. This picture-perfect location - a favorite of visiting Americans and Europeans -- is everything you've imagined Paris to be. You will feel exceedingly comfortable and safe in this very special neighborhood.
Upon entering, you will be embraced by Juliette's warmth and unique character, which was lovingly created by its former owner, the wife of a French Senator, who scoured the flea markets and villages around Paris to create the ambiance of 17th Century France. At the same time, the apartment boasts the latest, modern amenities -- from WiFi and high-end appliances to luxury linens and a spacious travertine American style shower -- to make your stay completely convenient and comfortable.
One enters a small foyer equipped with an antique writing desk and bookcase filled with Paris guidebooks. The adjacent downstairs bedroom features two beds - a double in an alcove flanked by two spacious wardrobes, plus a second twin bed with storage neatly tucked under stairs leads to a romantic, low-ceilinged upstairs loft.
The large living space is spacious yet warm, and filled with wonderful antiques. A 17th century ship captain's safe serves as a stand for a flat-screen TV, and an 18th century portrait graces an antique hearth, which faces a comfortable daybed (which can accommodate a sixth guest). The space is illuminated by a beautiful crystal chandelier. A pretty dining table sits adjacent to a street-side ten foot classic French window. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to create perfect French cuisine, including a famous 'La Cornue' stove (the Rolls Royce of French cooking equipment), microwave, dishwasher (cleverly concealed in an antique hutch), a lovely buffet with marble-topped workspace, and a full complement of utensils, pots, pans, china and glassware. Cable television, DVD and CD player are accompanied by a selection of music and French-themed American movies to complete the ambiance. The lovely shower room features beautiful brass fixtures, crystal sconces and an antique chest/sink. The lavatory is in a separate room, with a unique ship captain's wash basin that complements the nautical theme. There is also a Miele washer/dryer.
An antique writing desk, equipped by a MAC desktop, WiFi printer, and travel guide filled bookcase is framed by another ten-foot window greenery-filled floor-to-ceiling French window; the perfect spot to pen a postcard or your Parisian memoirs.
THE ROMANTIC LOFT
You may not want to leave your cozy nest in the mezzanine loft, with a queen sized bed adjacent to an en suite bathroom featuring a wonderful Napoleonic era claw foot tub -- a perfect place to soak after a long day on the cobblestones. It also includes a sink and toilet. Please note that, while adding to the unique charm of this property, the low ceiling in the loft will require ducking for anyone of stature (over 5'5'); the loft is also open to the area below.
With its perfect central location and beautiful interior, updated with modern conveniences, this very special, historic apartment will make your experience in Paris all the more memorable. Juliette is a very special place from which to explore all the best that this magical city has to offer.
Please note: our nightly rate is for up to four guests; there is an additional $25 per night charge for additional guests to cover the cost of additional linens and cleaning.
