Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom - Sleeps 4

Upscale apartment in elegant Left Bank location is sure to offer you the most in comfort and aesthetics for the ultimate Parisian experience.

This sleek apartment is located on the 8th European floor (9th US) in a modern building. With two secure elevators, all require a security badge, this building offers all the modern advantages, including handicap access; something that is rare in Paris!

As you step into your new home away from home, you'll be greeted by a bright and welcoming apartment. The first thing you'll notice are the floor to ceiling picture windows which cover almost the entire back wall with a view over the large courtyard. The furniture is contemporary in warm shades of grey and lime green. Mirrors, glass and dark wood, as well as Ansel Adams-like photographs and Christo prints adorn the space, making it pleasant and warm. The recently renovated grey parquet and up to date furniture offer comfort and visual appeal with a clean stylish look. With the spacious open floor plan of the living/dining area, it's the perfect place to chat about your plans for the day, relax, or watch TV. Four upscale leather chairs are tucked into the smoked glass extendable dining table designed by none other than French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Extra chairs are provided for seating for up to 6. The sofa opens to a queen size bed with an extra thick mattress that can sleep up to 2 guests.

A solid wood and frosted glass Japanese sliding doors separate the bedroom from the living room. Cozy and nest-like, the bedroom is equipped with a large closet on one side, the picture windows overlooking the courtyard on the opposite side, and the Japanese-style sliding doors on the third side. The double bed (new in 2015) and of the utmost comfort, tucked cozily between vertical shelves, perfect for reaching for a bedtime book or reading lamps. An air conditioning unit is located in the bedroom, and with the door open can cool the entire apartment. Electric shutters in both the bedroom and living room block out any daylight for a restful sleep. Peaceful and cozy – what more could one want for resting after a long day out?

The separate kitchen is located conveniently off the dining area. Decorated with orange 60's style counters, it's fully equipped with a large refrigerator and separate freezer, a washer/dryer combo, dishwasher, microwave, oven and stove top. You’ll find all the necessary items including a kettle, toaster, French coffee press, and more --perfect for serving those special treats from the fresh local markets.

The bathroom, which has been re-tiled with small turquoise squares, provides a nice-size bathtub to relax in, with handheld or attached shower. The owner has thoughtfully provided some conveniences of home including a full-size mirror as well as a magnifying mirror, a scale, and a retractable clothesline, as well as two hair dryers. The WC is separate and located in the apartment entryway.

The owner of this apartment has thought of every detail to make your stay perfect and memorable. A thick house book has been carefully put together with interesting and useful information, from restaurants to the history of the various Parisian neighborhoods, to measurement conversions, to a listing of all the museums in Paris. Just more proof that this apartment provides all the details to make your stay in Paris the best it can be.

Once out of the apartment, the neighborhood breathes both elegance and history. The Seine is just down the street where you can hop on a Bateau Mouche, which takes you through the center of historic Paris for a stunning view of the city. The Champs de Mars, which is an expansive garden surrounding the Eiffel Tower, is just a three minute stroll away. This park is fun for everyone, offering pony rides, puppet shows, lots of grass for playing ball, or picnicking and just relaxing. Or why not ponder what was, in 1889, the world’s tallest man-made structure? And don’t miss the flickering of its lights at night every hour on the hour—a magical experience. Just beyond the Champs de Mars is Trocadero, where you’ll find the new architecture museum, the anthropological museum and the aquarium, and offering a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower and surroundings.

If you walk in the opposite direction, just a few minutes from the apartment, there are excellent bakeries and restaurants, shops selling everything from cheese, fresh fish, vegetables and fruit, or the newest line of clothes and accessories. And so easy to hop on a metro or RER if you want to explore other areas of Paris.

This is Paris at its best!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay so very much. The location and proximity to the Metro, shops and a variety of restaurants could not have been better. And then there was "le Tour", a constant presence. There WAS construction noise during the day, but for the most part, we were out and about, so it was not a problem. Tania was terrific and came to our rescue when the light in the commode burned out. We will most definitely use Vacation in Paris for our next trip.

Wonderful respite in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights in Paris in May, 2012 (and longer in France and Belgium). We have stayed in Paris on at least 5 other occasions. We wanted a location that was centrally located, near the subway stops and was quiet. This apartment was that and more! We look back longingly on this apartment stay as a highlight of our trip. There are a number of small grocery stores in the area for food shopping and several good restaurants in the area. We are not big on night life, so we cannot address that. However, we love walking and being so close to the Eiffel Tower Place Parc du Champ de Mars was superb! We loved the sliding windows and doors on this unit and the fact that it faced out onto a square with offices, meaning it was quiet at night. The bed was comfortable. We loved being able to drink large quanitities of coffee in the morning in our apartment before heading out for the day (never have been taken with small espresso cups). It was easy to go off for a day of sightseeing and get back to the apartment. Although we were on a busy street, the unit faces to the back. It is a nice, fairly weathly residential area and people are out with their dogs and jogging in the morning. We would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable and Convient

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property this past summer and found it to be a wonderful choice for our family of four. The location is perfect - with the Eiffel tower and it's lovely lawns just a couple of minutes away. The train stations were close by as well, as was a taxi stand at the hotel next doors. There were some charming bakeries as well as some well stocked convenience stores nearby. There was also a variety of restaurants all around. The apartment itself was clean, spacious, well appointed and very comfortable for us. The children enjoyed the games and we appreciated the tourist guides that were so thoughtfully provided. The wireless internet connectivity worked well - something our tech savvy kids could not have done without. Working with Vacations in Paris was a pleasure - they are helpful and efficient and kept us well informed. All in all - a great experience.
