About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The words 'sophisticated and elegant' are often overused, but not in this case.

This totally renovated large two bedroom two bath apartment is absolutely stunning, decorated and restored by a designer who knows exactly how to create a marriage of 20th century French furniture with 18th century architectural features including breathtaking moldings and polished herringbone wood floors.

Take two flights up (or the typical Parisian elevator) and you enter an enormous and welcoming corridor lined with contemporary art work, leading into your huge, light-bathed living room with marble fireplace, four sets of French doors that open onto a balcony that is the entire length of the living room, twin designer demilune sofas, marble top coffee table and a black deco dining room table. Keep walking to another comfortable sofa/sitting area, and then find the second bedroom with twin beds that can also become a QUEEEN, a huge window facing a quiet interior courtyard, and a full en suite bathroom with tub and shower. The master bedroom, also with it's own bath, is warm, off white, plush, with upholstered head board and individual low voltage reading lights over each overstuffed pillow. This bedroom, like the other one, has a large window that also faces the quiet inner courtyard.

The kitchen was totally redone recently with top of the line appliances, a real washer and separate dryer, (rare in Paris), and handsome stone counter tops. A small kitchen table allows all guests to share breakfast together and look out over the pretty courtyard. THIS IS A FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN! In combination with the proximity to RUE CLER (4 minutes!), it's perfect for the gourmet guest

We also offer, at NO additional charge: FULL PRIVATE CONCIERGE SERVICES. Your personal concierge will meet you at your apartment upon arrival, and is available 24/7 to help with anything you can imagine to make your trip more wonderful. CHAUFFEUR services are also available (70E from airport/2 guests each way, 90E for 4 guests). This is a nice way to start your trip, as we meet you right at customs, and your private chauffeur will coordinate with your concierge who will be waiting for you at your apartment. And for those guests traveling with a lot of luggage, that too is delivered to your home by your chauffeur!

So, why do I love this apartment?

It's beautiful, elegant and very, very comfortable.

It's ideally situated - the neighborhood of Rue Dominique and the famous Rue Cler are just around the corner, and offer hundreds of bakeries, chocolate shops, cafes and restaurants. Many important tourist spots are very nearby, including the Eiffel Tower. Nearby taxi stands and metro (La Tour Maurbourg) make all of Paris easily accessible.

It's unique, classic, and unforgettable.

Who is this apartment perfect for?

A couple with a guest - parents with a teenager, two couples celebrating a special occasion, or four friends who would love to explore the best of Paris, while living in very high style.

Great place. True to the photos.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful neighborhood and location. Plenty of dining options and some shopping, even though we were there during the traditional French holiday time when some restaurants and stores close. The apartment was well stocked- easy for us with kids to make meals, do laundry, etc. We needed the A/C a couple nights (it was 90 degrees during the day) and had a slight hiccup with one unit, which was attended to quickly by the concierge Marc. Marc had great recommendations for different tours, dining, etc. Thank you Marc.

Wonderful Visit...

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing visit. Loved the neighborhood, loved the ease to the Metro, the flat was very enjoyable. Communications, payments, all the logistics were very easy and very convenient. Our contacts on Paris, Mathias and Marc were wondeful and very responsive. Transfers to/from CDG worked great, even though our pickup from CDG was more complicated as we were returning a rental car, not meeting a flight. Marc!s market tour was definitely a highlight of our visit. Suggestion to attend "How to be Parisian in 1Hour" was fantastic. Our dinner in the flat with Nicolas from Cotte de Roti was out of this world. Thank you for arranging Nicolas to come to the flat and serving dinner with the wine pairing. Another major highlight of our trip. The only bummer was the fact the the entrance and stairwell were being painted during our entire stay. The smell of paint and getting paint on our hands as we turned in lighting and hit the buttons to open doors was a bummer. It would have been night to have been notified, not that we would have made any changes. Also, this is a condo and I'm sure the owners have any say about when this work is scheduled and how long it should take to complete the work.

Owner's Response: Thank so for the wonderful comments and I will share them with our terrific team. Regarding the painting - sorry about the inconvenience but it's in fact the exact OPPOSITE ! In France you never ever ever know when renovations actually will start and end. It's one of the great mysteries here. At my place we were told elevator construction would start in January and in fact I planned my trip to avoid it. They began May 1 as I arrived 😊�. Meanwhile thanks again for staying with us and for taking the time to write your review. See you next time ! Jim.

A very nice place with everything you could want. The location was ideal. The place is exactly as the photos online look. From the minute you make your reservation until you leave Jim and Mathias are there to help in anyway they can.
