Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath w/ Separate Powder Room (Sleeps 2)

WELCOME to your Parisian home away from home! Perfect for business travelers and vacationers!

Ideally located in the heart of the City of Lights, steps away from the right bank’s world-renowned monuments and the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore’s fashion shops, your gorgeous apartment awaits.

Built in the late 1800s in the Haussmann style, completely renovated in 2006 and again in 2016, your spacious, one-bedroom pied-a-terre sparkles with beautiful south, east, and west-facing views of Paris rooftops and streetscape from its rare bay window.

Decorated by Valerie DeRoy Interiors, LLC, each airy room is a tribute to elegant yet comfortable Parisian living. (700 Square Feet: Foyer, Foyer Walk-In Closet, Kitchen, Powder Room, Living/Dining Room, Bedroom, Bathroom, Laundry Room)

DESCRIPTION:

With natural sunlight cascading into each room thanks to its south-facing windows, your air-conditioned 4th floor Parisian pied-a-terre, accessible by stairs or by elevator, exudes warmth and airiness.

The living and dining room, showcasing original and unusual Empire ceiling moldings as well as point-de-hongrie hardwood floors, is the perfect room in which to unwind after a busy day spent sightseeing the marvels of Paris: Dock your iPod in the Bose SoundDock Digital Music System, pour yourself a glass of wine, and experience Paris living the way well-heeled Parisians do.

The large bedroom, featuring original and intricately carved ceiling moldings as well as plush carpeting and a king-size bed, is a haven designed for relaxation and rejuvenation after a night on the town. Its muted colors, soft fabrics, and hushed lighting make it the perfect after dark Parisian sanctuary.

The kitchen, with granite countertops, glazed cabinets, and a full complement of top-of-the-line stainless steel Miele appliances, manages to be both efficient and elegant. The adjoining powder room is ideally situated, allowing easy access to you and your cocktail guests.

The bathroom, with its white carrara marble floor and wall tiles, retro plumbing fixtures and oversized porcelain bathtub, may make you want to soak forever.

Other amenities include:

* 32 inch flat panel television with over 150 channels (including CNN International, Bloomberg, CNBC Europe, etc.)

* Wireless internet access

* Telephone

* DVD player

* Dishwasher, microwave, conventional oven, ceramic glass cook top, washer/dryer

* Hairdryer, plush towels, high thread count bed linens

NEIGHBORHOOD:

Located in the heart of the 8th arrondissement, your apartment is a stroll away from the right bank’s most famous historical places and monuments: les Champs-Elysees, la place de la Concorde, la place de la Madeleine, l’Opera, la place Vendome, les Tuileries gardens, le Louvre museum, le Palais Royal, le Petit Palais and le Grand Palais. Le Parc Monceau, surrounded by 19th century Hotels Particuliers and one of Paris' most elegant parks, is only a few short blocks away.

For shopping, the high fashion shops of la rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore are just mere minutes away, as are les Grands Magasins, Paris’ quintessential department stores. At the Marche Treilhard, a couple of blocks away, a cornucopia of French delicacies await: here you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, cheese from the cheese shop, pastries from the patisserie, fish from the fishmonger, and meat from the butcher. For everyday items, the Monoprix supermarket is also but a couple of blocks away.

For a true French market experience, head to the Levis market on the rue de Levis, a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The Levis market is open daily, weekends included. Go there in the mornings for a deeper selection of typical French foods and beverages. We highly recommend you walk the Levis market at least once during your stay, as it is a feast for the eyes.

If you want food to match your new Armani outfit, take a walk to la Madeleine and browse the shelves of Fauchon or Hediard, Paris’ top luxury food emporiums. If sweets are what you crave, try Laduree on the rue Royale, maker of Paris’ finest macaroons.

For explorations further a field, the Miromesnil and Saint-Augustin Metro Stations are just a few steps away (2-4 minutes), as are direct bus routes to all parts of the city.

About Joel

My wife and I spend about 4 weeks a year in our Paris apartment, and consider it our home away from home. It is a true gem which we hope you will enjoy as much as we do!

Joel purchased this condo in 2006

Why Joel chose Paris Arr. 8 (Champs Elysees)

My wife being from Paris and my in-laws living there, we decided to purchase this property to be able to visit with them as often as possible. We settled on this arrondissement because of its rich history, easy walking distance to all of the right bank's major monuments, its residential feel and convenient access to the city's subway, bus lines and CDG airport. An added attraction is that Valerie's family live around the corner from us.

What makes this condo unique

We chose to purchase this particular apartment for multiple reasons: the high ceilings, the original parquet floors, plaster moldings, fireplace and mirrors, the view from its unique bay window, the building's enhanced security thanks to its own caretaker or what Parisians call a 'gardienne', and close proximity to public transportation and taxi stands.

An added benefit are the Presidential Palace and Interior Ministry buildings around the corner ensuring police patrol our neighborhood streets 24 hours a day on their mission to protect France's most important politicians. This can be very reassuring when walking back from one of our wonderful local restaurants at 1:00 am! (and helpful when in need of directions)

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was a true gem and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We could not believe how nice and quaint the apartment and building was. It was a dream come true for my wife. We had an amazing time and will cherish it for a lifetime. It was the storybook honeymoon for us and we appreciate your accommodations and help and service to us. We already miss the couch and balcony window, we spent many moments there enjoying the Paris views in between our visits to the sites. Hopefully someday, we can visit again. We will pass the word around to friends alike that your apartment was a great place to enjoy the real Parisian experience!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I ended our 2-1/2 weeks of traveling with 5 days at Joel & Valerie's lovely apartment in Paris. Our stay on the Rue de Laborde was everything we'd hoped, and more. Joel was completely responsive to all of our communications, and his agent was very helpful to us during our stay. The location is on a short, quiet side street, with many conveniences close by. The croissants at the boulangerie across the street are excellent, and there are many wonderful restaurants and cafes nearby. There is also a Monoprix a very short walk away. At the end of the street is a statue of Baron Haussmann, who under Napoleon III, oversaw the redesign of Paris that we all love so much today. The Parc Monceau, along with the Musee Nissim de Camondo, with it's excellent restaurant, is only a 10 minute walk away, and the Place de la Concorde is just a 20 minute walk. The Elysee Palace is also only a 10 minute walk, and there are many nice shops in this area, such as Hermes, Cartier, and Pierre Cardin. The apartment itself is very comfortable as is shown in the photos, and as others have said, and we were sad when it was time for us to leave. We hope to return again soon, as it now feels like home!

Charming Apartment in a lovely quartier.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is elegant, roomy and very comfortable. It is close enough to walk to most places and the Metro is nearby for anywhere further. Place Saint-Augustin is populated with Parisiens not tourists. At the end of every day, it always felt wonderful to return to this quartier and welcoming flat.

Luxurious But Cozy, too.

  • 5 of 5

After looking at apartment booking sites for several weeks, we came upon Joel's listing. It was everything that was described and pictured in the listing! The furniture in the living/dining room was simple yet elegant and very comfortable. The King-size bed was perfect, too. The kitchen, although small, was complete, including the oven that doubles as a microwave. How clever! All the comforts of home were included. The A/C was a plus, and it worked really well. The elevator, for two passengers, was also of tremendous help.

The apartment could not have been in a better spot for us. Sights, restaurants, gardens, are within easy reach. The information we received from the owners about the aforementioned things was of great help. We loved the Levis street market and the food shops around the corner! We took their advice a few times for restaurants, and found some spots on our own.

All being said, staying in this lovely place with its old world details, yet modern convenience, communicating with the owners and exploring Paris for ourselves made us feel like locals for the 10 days of our stay.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just finished a one week stay in this lovely apartment. It is just as nice as in the photos. Well equipped and the owners left the best instructions for using the appliances that I have ever seen. Very quiet with the windows closed. AC works very well. Tiny elevator. Just barely fits two people but fast and efficient

The property manager, Cristina, is on site and very helpful. Apartment is in a good location for sighteeing and convenient to many small shops and restaurants. For quick healthy delicious food there is a shop a few doors down called "Which One" that we liked. Owner was a chef in New York before returning to Paris to open this cafe. I can highly recommend this rental for anyone who prefers apartments to hotels when traveling.

Perfect Parisian Flat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Just Perfect! The flat is just as described and the photos are an outstanding representation of this lovely home away from home.

The flat is very "Parisian" and really added to our overall Paris experience. Located close to transportation and a taxi stand with good restaurants and grocer nearby.

Amenities were sufficient, bed very comfortable, flat very clean. Lovely sitting room, great bathroom. Plenty of drawer and closet space.

Check in was quick and easy even though we were held up by traffic and arrived later than planned. Elevator straight up to apartment. May take a couple of trips as it's a very small European type lift. Only holds 2 adults at a time or one adult and luggage. Stairs are also readily available.

Highly recommend, we would love to return one day!!!
