About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a huge (120 square meter) , bright (windows everywhere), classic (great moldings), air-conditioned, elegant French apartment, perched near the roof top (fourth floor) of a typical 1860's Paris Building -- the apartments are so large that there is only one for each floor.

First enter into an elegant reception area, with original herringbone floors and plaster moldings. Then step into your HUGE bright living room and dining room perfect for entertaining a large family. The views are incredible - of the bustling street below, Rue St Antoine, and the newly renovated and amazingly beautiful baroque church of St Paul, just across from the apartment.

The master bedroom has a QUEEN (160cm) sized bed, and brand new ensuite bathroom with shower and sink.

The second bedroom, with its own fireplace, has two single beds (70cm) perfect for older kids that refuse to share a bed -- or can be a double if you prefer.

The third bedroom has a double bed (140cm) ideal for another couple or single guest. These can also be split if needed.

There are two bathrooms, one larger one with two sinks, shower and tub. The second smaller bathroom is the one just off the master bedroom. There is a separate room for the toilet off the main hallway (yes inside the apartment!). So the net is two full bathrooms.

The elevator is brand new, up and running and cleverly designed to maintain the elegant original polished wooden bannister.

Included with us: FULL CONCIERGE SERVICES -- my concierge team meets you at the apartment when you arrive, and they are available 24/7 during your stay.

Add-ons: CHAUFFEUR SERVICE - 90 E/up to six guests from the airport to your apartment, one way.

What do I love about this apartment?

1 - Location - just up from metro St Paul, you can walk to almost every major attraction, including the Louvre, Musee D'orsay, Ile St Louis, Notre Dame, Picasso Museum and the Bastille. And the view of the JUST RENOVATED CHURCH OF ST PAUL is amazing. Beyond description.

2 - Size - it's one of the largest apartments you can find here - three full bedrooms and huge living room, perfect for a family vacation.

3 - Light - if you want a bright, sun-filled space, this is it. Views are terrific, and light floods the apartment at all times of the day.

WHO is the perfect guest for this apartment?

1 - Families - the floor plan is particularly good for mom and dad and 3 or four older children.

2 - Two or three couples - this would work as well; we can move the single beds together and create one king and two doubles.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked into this beautiful apartment we felt at home. There was plenty of space for our family of 5 to spread out and be comfortable. All amenities were as described and anything we needed was taken care of promptly and easily.

We loved the area and found wonderful restaurants, markets, and shopping. It was easy to walk to all the nearby sights. We highly recommend this beautiful apartment and would love to return.

I can only use superlatives to describe everything about this property, and the people who handle the rental.

We were 6 adults and one infant (3 generations).

The apartment is light and airy. Looking out the living room window to the beautiful clock and facade of the church across the street is breathtaking. There is plenty of space, a large dining table, a user friendly kitchen, comfortable beds, lots of cupboards for clothing and many thoughtful touches that made our time inside very pleasurable. There is a pianist who lives above, and if you're lucky to be home when they are playing, you are in for an exceptional treat.

The location is superb with easy access to everything in Paris. Neighbourhood restaurants, shops, museums etc. are plentiful and delightful. The metro and bus lines are a minute from the apartment.

Marc, the concierge, is an absolute gem. Everything was done with a smile and he made himself available to help with everything from A to Z, both prior to our trip, and while we were there.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

Excellent apartment. Size is terrific; corner location across from the church meant lots of light

  • 5 of 5

We immediately extended for another week on walking into the apartment as it was exactly what we wanted for our stay. Good little restaurants, especially those in the nearby square. Being on the fourth floor and on a corner meant that the light was terrific and the street scene could be observed without having it in our faces. Nearby good niche shopping was also a plus. Three of our adult children joined us at various times and used it as the jumping off place for all of the things they wanted to do - close to various odd little museums we didn't know existed in Paris plus for them (not us) walking distance to the Louvre the other better know museums they wanted to see again. A great place to be I'm sure if you a tourist in Paris seeing things for the first time (hop on/off bus stop right across the street, for example) but also a perfect place if you've done the "must see" things before and just want to be in Paris: big grocery/department store a block away one way; medium-sized grocery store across the street and ATM's within 2 minutes in several directions. All in all a very satisfactory experience. Because my wife has somewhat limited mobility the elevator was not only a positive for her, it accommodated my getting the portable scooter in and out of the building efficiently.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our family- spacious and close to everything. Easy walk to the Seine, Notre Dame, Bastille. Not too far to the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, and the metro is across the street! Lots of shopping and restaurants.

The apartment itself is gorgeous with lots of windows. One caveat is that it is on a busy street, so it doesn't get that quiet at night- but you don't go to Paris to sleep! Thank you for a perfect Paris vacation!!
