This amazing and newly decorated apartment, with a unique view of the Eiffel Tower, is located on the third floor of a splendid “Hotel Particulier” in the heart of the prestigious 7th district, between the Eiffel Tower and the Invalides, and very close to the river Seine.
This is the best situation for visiting Paris: the majority of the main Parisian monuments and museums are accessible by foot.
Facing its own internal courtyard, this impressive stone house was built in the mid 19th century by the architect of the Rothschild's for a French Marquis who choose this very quite and safe area to house his family.
You will cross the courtyard and take the majestic staircase to access your 700sq ft apartment. The other side of your apartment looks onto a quiet traditional street that features what was once the old docks of the Seine and has an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. You will never get tired of admiring this unique view of the “Grande Dame” at night. It will certainly remain one of the strongest souvenirs you will keep after your stay.
This gem of an apartment, was renovated to luxury standards and features some original 1940's classic furniture and eclectic artworks. It is extremely tastefully decorated and very bright with natural light from both sides and high ceilings with original features complemented by wooden parquet floors and gracious curtains and blinds. The apartment is Very comfortable, impeccably clean and maintained to the highest standards
It consists of a spacious living/dining room, bedroom with comfortable, high quality queen bed, and bathroom with bath/shower, a modern fully equipped kitchen with breakfast area and a small terrace. The apartment also features a magnificent hallway running along its length. There is ample cupboard space throughout.
To keep in touch or relax there is a High Definition TV with CNN, BBC World etc, a Bose Sound System with ipod/ipad connection, DVD player and a very fast Wireless connection.
Like Parisians, you will be able to enjoy the many restaurants, bars and shops of the district (in the renowned streets of rue Saint-Dominique, rue Cler, rue Surcouf - we will provide the list of our recommended ones); and walk to many major monuments located only 5 -10 min away such as the Eiffel Tower, the Invalides, the Grand Palais, the Rodin Museum, the Pont Alexandre III, the Museum of Modern Art, the Orsay Museum, etc. The apartment is also very near the Seine: you can go by foot to the Louvre by making a magnificent stroll along the river, by using the pedestrianized docks. Or take an unforgettable boat trip on the Seine in the evening.
Buses, metro stations and taxis are all nearby.
Finally, the 7th district is an epicurean's dream where you can discover the most delicious foods. Upon arrival, the manager will supply you with a list of the best of these exceptional local resources: boulangeries, delicatessens, butchers, fromageries, patisseries...all located a few steps away.
Ideally designed for a couple, our apartment will offer you a unique experience in Paris and make you feel as comfortable as in your own home.
The manager of our apartment is one of our closest neighbours. He will welcome you onsite, and will remain within easy reach for any need. He knows the area intimately and will provide you with as many recommendations as you could hope for.
As you can observe, the rates are quite low for such an exceptional unit of upper category. The reason for that is that there is no lift. Successive owners of the house have never wanted to spoil the unique style of these majestic stairs by adding a lift in the middle of it. You will appreciate the beauty and harmony of these stairs each time you go in or out of your apartment. As the stairs are extremely wide and not high, getting up or down is like a little promenade and you will understand why a lift is absolutely not necessary.

About Mr. Felibrune
My husband Bernard and I own this apartment. He is South African and I am Irish - we met in London and then lived in Tokyo for 6 years. We moved to Amsterdam 15 years ago but spend as much time as we can in Paris, enjoying our beautiful apartment and all the attractions of our favourite city. Kind Regards Majella
Mr. Felibrune purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Mr. Felibrune chose Gros-Caillou
We always dreamed of having an apartment in Paris where we could walk or cycle to local shops, markets, restaurants, museums, parks and concerts, explore different neighbourhoods and live like Parisians.
What makes this Apartment unique
We started to look a few years ago and when we walked into this apartment we knew this was the one! The entrance, grand stairway, the light, the views, the character - it just fitted. And the location was perfect - within easy walking distance of major museums and landmarks yet quiet and maintaining a local atmosphere with great shops and restaurants on our doorstep.

Nice apartment in great locatuon!
Perfect for a couple. Walking distance to main sights. Very well equipped kitchen.
Felt Like Once In A Lifetime Opportunity
This beautiful mansion turned into apartments was spectacular! The view from the hallway watching the Eiffel Tower glitter was iconic. We had a wonderful time.
The apartment had all the extras that a hotel doesn't - my favorite were the washer/dryer, dishes and silverware. It was lovely to pack a little less and wash our traveling clothes. We are not city folk - so the washer/dryer one unit was new to us. But we were taught how to use it, and it worked beautifully. Beware - it takes 2 1/2 hours to wash. That's totally normal, just didn't know it because I had never used one before.
The bed was delightful - soft and wonderful linens. Everything was spotless and clean. There isn't clutter, but there is a few shelves full of Paris books that we enjoyed looking through.
As many have mentioned, there are stairs - 86 to be exact. It was a little tough after walking 10 miles during the day, but totally worth it. For two nights we didn't know where the lights to the stairs were so we walked up the grand staircase in the dark. We finally got smart and looked around one morning and found the light. No worries after that!
I would definitely recommend it, and would stay there for our next adventure.
Beautiful and comfortable in a great neighborhood!
My husband and I spent 6 nights in this lovely apartment. The couch and chaise in the living room were perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The bed was comfortable, with nice linens and plenty of towels provided. The bathroom, though small, was perfectly adequate and good water pressure and hot water for showering. The tiny kitchen was just fine for reheating or preparing snacks or a continental breakfast, and the dishwasher and washer/dryer is a plus. But the view of the Eiffel tower over the rooftops, Ohh La La, I never got tired of that!
The neighborhood is great - lots of cafes and restaurants , shopping, bakeries, and minutes from the fabulous open air market street Rue Cler. It's also close to 2 Metro stops.
The only reason I haven't given this 5 stars, is the stairs. For me, it was one floor too many, especially after walking all day, as you do in Paris (full disclosure, I am a 67 year old woman, your mileage may vary). But once you get up there, the place is perfect. The host is right downstairs if you have any questions or problems (we did not). If you are good with stairs, do not hesitate to rent this incredible apartment.
Beautiful clean well appointed property.
Great condo in vibrant neighborhood
We loved this beautiful condo and it's view of the Eiffel Tower. The neighborhood has lots of shops and restaurants and was close to many things. Highly recommend!
Clean, very well located in a very safe neighborhood, and spacious
We certainly would recommend this apartment! Xavier greeted us and gave us the tour of the apartment when we arrived from the airport. The apartment is very well located only blocks from restaurants, taxi pick up location, and so much more. We walked over 60 miles on our 10 day visit to Paris, and having a well appointed apartment made our stay comfortable.
