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.

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!!

Great apartment for a family of 5. Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there with my family of 5 and it was perfect for us. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and clean. The best thing was that it was convenient to all the sites we visited. There is a metro stop right outside our door making it easy to get around. There were many restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. The location was just perfect! Marc the concierge was incredibly helpful both before and during our stay. Would definitely stay there again if we make it back to Paris!

Great location! Charming, older building

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last week with my husband, nanny, and our 2-year old son. It worked out really well for us! The building is beautiful and the apartment is very sweet with great lighting and colorful artwork. It's an older building so there were a few quirky things about the apartment but nothing out of the ordinary for an older building. Marc, the concierge, set up a fantastic tour of the Lourve with a guide named Helene that was AMAZING. She was so knowledgable and we loved it! Our son found the apartment fascinating and Marc had a pack-n-play set up and waiting for us when we arrived for a small additional charge- so helpful! Just a note, bring your own shampoo/conditioner as there is only soap in the bathrooms. Also, the master bedroom has a shower/sink but no toilet, isn't a huge issue but I'm 5 months pregnant and getting up to use the restroom frequently at night became kind of a hassle, if you're pregnant I would suggest staying in one of the other rooms closer to the two toilets. The washer/dryer worked perfectly for us as we were mid-trip and coming from London so we did a bunch of laundry. There is a park close by, a great cheese shop, several stores and coffee shops so we never had to go far for supplies for our son. There is a storage area downstairs where we kept the stroller for convenient access. This home worked perfectly for us especially with a child in tow, he loved the elevator!

Fantastic location - Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and the service were exactly what we expected. We were three ladies visiting Paris for the first time and we loved having restaurants, cafes, shopping, and a beautiful view right out our door and window. We took advantage of the airport pick up/return service arranged by Marc and it was exactly as promised. The apartment itself is quite spacious with comfortable furniture and beds. The bathrooms are in need of a little updating but are in good working order. Overall, I would rate this apartment high and will stay here again on my return trip to Paris.

Light and plenty of space for 5 of us. Comfortable beds and fantastic view from the balcony.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a fantastic location with plenty of shops nearby selling fresh bread, croissants, wine, cheese and pastries. The river is 5 mins walk away and we enjoyed catching the Batobus to take us along the Seine to all the sights.

The Eiffel tower was busy, but was a highlight for our children as was eating snails for the first time! We ordered 'skip the line' tickets online for the Louvre which worked well - again it was very busy but we enjoyed our visit. The Mona Lisa is not nearly as fascinating as seeing the crowd of people (20 deep) gathered to try to see it and take selfies. The Egyptian antiquities area of the Louvre is well worth a visit.

Marc (the concierge) was very knowledgeable of the area and recommended a few restaurants and shops for us as well as sending emails with maps. There was some confusion on arrival as the taxi booked from the airport did not turn up, however Marc sorted it out for us and met us at entrance to the apartment.

All in all this was a lovely stay in Paris!
