About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, (Sleeps 4)

Sophisticated newly renovated apartment with classic design and contemporary art. On the 7th (top) floor of an Art Deco building from the 1930's with two elevators and a concierge. Gorgeous views of Paris rooftops, the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides.

The large living room has two double french windows that open wide. One corner of the double living room transforms into a sleeping alcove with a queen size sofa bed and another sofa facing it. The other end has a separate seating area with a desk that can open up and become a dining table for 10 people. There is a Bang & Olufsen sound system and an HDTV receiver with Apple TV and cable and high speed wireless internet. There is also a wireless printer. Free calls to the US can be made from the phone.

The kitchen /dining area has a dining table that seats 6 and in the kitchen section at the other end there is a stove, microwave/oven, dishwasher a refrigerator/freezer and closets for food and for dishware.

The bathroom has a large lavabo, a soaking tub and a separate shower. There is also a washing machine and dryer in a closet. The WC is a separate room.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, ample closet space, and a seating area looking over the rooftops to the Eiffel Tower.

The art collection is mainly photography, with some drawings, gouaches and paintings. The artists are from North and South America, Europe and Asia. The furniture is primarily Italian (Vico Magistretti) with a few classic French armchairs (Louis XV).

The apartment is located in the 2nd arrondissement on rue Poissonnière, with numerous shops, markets, cafes and restaurants and the Grand Rex Cinema nearby. There is easy access to transportation - buses and Metro (Bonne Nouvelle-Lines 8 & 9 and Sentier -Line 3). There is a taxi stand at the corner). The apartment is a 5 minute walk from the wonderful pedestrian street rue Montorgeuil with fresh produce markets, fishmongers, butchers, bakers and flower shops and a 10 minute walk from Les Halles Shopping Center which includes cinemas, book stores and shops of every kind, as well as the RER and additional Metro lines.

For those who prefer a Paris apartment experience to a hotel, this is a great place to be.. Convenient to public transportation, neighborhood markets and restaurants, this is as close to being a Parisian as one can be for a week or a month. In addition, with interesting artwork, the place has character. The owner lives here part, of the year which helps to maintain the warmth and comfortable feeling of a home. It is an elegant and romantic space..

The apartment is clean, comfortable, and well provisioned. The owners are easy to work with and accommodating.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a retired American/French couple, deeply involved in the arts, multilingual and multicultural. We divide our time between France and the United States. Cities are a passion for us and a constant source of discovery.

Why the Owner Chose Mail, Paris, France:
Over the years we have lived in five different neighborhoods in Paris, and this is our favorite. We did a total renovation in 2012. We bought this property because it is on the top floor of the building, with lots of light, gorgeous views, private and totally quiet. We also liked the fact that there are 5 different neighborhoods within easy walking distance, and a fantastic array of restaurants, cafes (even Starbucks), concert halls, museums and theaters nearby. As movie buffs we also liked that the Rex Cinema is a complete multiplex including the largest cinema (2800 places) in Europe.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
great landlords, great neighbors
