About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This 17th century apartment has all the features of the perfect Paris getaway – massive original oak beams, red tile 'tomette' floors dotted with Persian carpets, antique French furnishings and comfortable beds wrapped in luxurious high thread count linens. In the living room, there is a beautiful 19th century tapestry on the wall of the lady and unicorn. The kitchen has new rich brown polished granite counter tops.

We have just completed a brand new bathroom renovation, all new paint job and all new energy efficient silent heating system! It's GLEAMING!

The large living room opens into the renovated kitchen and dining area, easily seating eight guests around a large antique dining room table.

The sofa opens into a queen sized bed. There are two bedrooms and two baths.

--The larger bedroom, with a queen bed, is off the living room and offers an en-suite bathroom with full size tub/shower, washer and dryer.

--The second smaller bedroom is a SEPARATE suite, just adjacent to the main apartment, on the same landing, and there are no other apartments on this floor. It is ideal for the guest who wants full privacy (children, visitors, etc). In this bedroom, there is a double bed (140cm) , two skylights and a full bathroom, and its own WIFI and air conditioning central system.

Note: this is a small bedroom, so not ideal for two large adults, perfect for one adult or two teenagers/younger children.

The neighborhood? Wonderful! Easy walk to Ile St Louis, Bastille, Places Des Vosges and Notre Dame. Nearest Metros are Bastille, Sully Morland and Saint Paul.

The services we offer? Wonderful!

--FULL CONCIERGE services are included at no additional charge. Our staff meets you AT the apartment when you arrive, and your personal concierge is available 24/7 should you have any questions.

--We also can arrange for our PRIVATE CHAUFFEUR to pick you up at the airport (90E/one way/6 guests) - he meets you right at customs, and then delivers you to the apartment as he coordinates the arrival of your concierge at the same time.

Why do I love this apartment?

-- It’s authentic, beautiful, bright, and very very quiet.

-- It's luxuriously furnished, really lovely.

-- It's in a great neighborhood, surrounded by museums, monuments, restaurants, unusual shops and the even more important BAKERIES!

-- It has a great layout - the second private bedroom and bath are perfect for the guests or kids or in-laws that need their own space, yet are still under your wing.

Who is the perfect guest for this apartment?

-- A couple looking for a romantic week in the heart of Paris;

-- A family (up to 6) who wants a cost effective alternative to a hotel;

-- A family with children who would love to have their own space, leaving the larger apartment and bedroom to the parents.

-- A party of three where the third person is not sharing the big bed with the other two... (ok, I'll stop here....)

About Jim

The smile tells it all. I love doing this. And, if we are careful, and always place the right guest in the right apartment, then 99% of the time our guests are extraordinarily happy, and that makes me happy.

Truly fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the wonderful stay we had at this wonderful, quaint, and beautifully appointed apartment. The care and attention received from the moment we arrived until the day we left was amazing. First let me say that the apartment was beautiful. Everything you need will be at your fingertips. Mathias our concierge who was a gem. He made everything easy and any question you had was easily answered and detailed in a binder especially for you. There was even a large button phone with his photo allowing us to reach him with the touch of a finger. When you arrive in a new city and you have a short time to figure everything out it is comforting to have someone who speaks the language available to you. The apartment is located a few minutes from the Bastille and close to the transit system. Everything from the grocer, the bakery, fresh fruit, and amazing restaurants is within a five minute walking distance. The apartment was extremely quiet and the sleeping arrangements made you feel like you were at home. We truly had a wonderful time. We will definitely return. Thank you Jim and Mathias.

Perfect Parisian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We selected this apartment based on all the previous reviews and it definitely lived up to its hype! It is charming, wonderfully furnished, fully stocked, and in a great location close to 2 metro stops / bakery / grocery / restaurants / coffee / shopping. Jim and his team are excellent and responsive to any question or need. Our concierge in Paris, Marc, was very helpful arranging transportation to and from the airport as well as a day trip to Normandy. My husband and I had been to Paris several times by ourselves, but this was the first time we brought our kids (ages 17, 14, 12). The apartment had enough room for all of us, including a side bedroom that every kid wanted a turn sleeping in. Their first experience in Europe was a blast and we can't thank Jim and Marc enough for our wonderful stay. Highly recommend and we will return!!!

Look no further...this should be your rental!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Just got back from our European adventure and stayed here during our Paris part of the trip. It was just perfect ! Jim and his team did an outstanding job of decorating, stocking and providing pretty much everything you need to be comfortable during your stay. We arrived during a heatwave and were thrilled to have air conditioning as most of Paris did not have it. The beds were very comfortable and the washer/dryer a definite bonus. Marc had booked our transportation to and from the train station, which was perfect, as the driver was waiting for us when we got off the train and on time to return us to the train station for our departure. Marc also was waiting at the apartment when we arrived and gave us a "favorites" list including restaurants, bread and wine stores. We will absolutely be recommending this lovely apartment to anyone going to Paris. We loved it! Thank you!

Perfect Apartment for Mother & Son

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in this beautiful apartment to celebrate his graduation from college, and it could not have been more perfect. It is beautifully decorated, fully-equipped, conveniently located to the metro and basic shops (e.g. grocery, boulangerie, pharmacy), and spacious enough to relax in comfort. Jim and his team are a phone call away should you need anything while you are there. Our concierge was just terrific, as he made dinner reservations for us at some fabulous restaurants the we otherwise would not have known about. We'd stay here again in a minute, and would recommend it to anyone!

Perfect for our trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful and comfortable apartment with our 11 year old daughter. It was perfect, tons of character, like stepping back in time but with all of the 21st century amenities (Wifi, modern kitchen, washer dryer, etc.). All you need to bring is a a change of clothes because everything else you might need is here. Location is great, wonderful neighborhood, also a short walk to the metro. The apartment exactly matches the photos/description and was very clean upon arrival. Jim and his team were responsive and easy to work with from start to finish. They can help with transportation, reservations, tickets and are available with recommendations or to answer any questions that might arise during your stay. I will and have already recommended this apartment to all of my friends both with and without kids. Don't hesitate to book this apartment, you will not be disappointed. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Jim, Karl, Marc and Mathias!
