Property description

If you want to stay somewhere that's not your run-of-the-mill rental apartment and you enjoy great design and being in beautiful surroundings, this place is for you. We have worked hard to create a place that has all the flair of a hip hotel but with the comfort and ease of having your own apartment.

We are situated in small 300 year old building. There is no lift but we are only the 2nd floor so it is not as strenuous and many infamous Paris 'walk-ups'. The communal corridor has been sympathetically restored and the building is clean and quiet.

With 3.5m ceilings and large windows, it feels very spacious for it's 32sqm size. It has been decorated with a mix of antiques and modern convenience and luxury. The beautiful, large kitchen table means you'll enjoy eating in as much as exploring the fantastic local restaurants.

All bed linen is good quality 100% cotton and pillows and quilts are goose feather and down. (We also have non-allergenic pillows available on request).

We fully renovated the apartment 5 years ago and have recently given it a 'touch-up' with new tiling in the bathroom and a fresh coat of paint.

Radiant under-floor heating keeps the place cozy in the winter and high-ceilings and fans keep it cool in the summer.

  • Despite the central location the bedroom is located at the back of the apartment away from the street so is wonderfully quiet and dark. We think a holiday should include a little luxury so we've created a really comfy bed. All bed linen is high quality 100% cotton and pillows and quilts are down and feather.

  • We like a really good shower and we expect you do too. We have a large walk-in shower with a Grohl Rainshower system with two shower heads, plenty of hot water and good pressure (if you've stayed in apartments in Europe before you'll know how rare this can be). We supply Savon de Marseille shower gel and body cream, good quality cotton towels and a hair-dryer. The bathroom is one of our favourite places in the apartment....moreless

Other Amenities

  • We've travelled a lot ourselves and know how small details can make a big difference in how much you enjoy a place. In this apartment we have tried hard to create a place that is a joy to be in. This is not another identikit rental apartment. It has all the modern conveniences but with an added touch of character and luxury....moreless

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Perfectly located in the centre of Paris, this is the part of Paris to be in if you like access to all the tourist sites without being in a 'touristy' area.

15 minutes walk in any direction can take you to The Louvre, Le Marais, Pompidou Centre and a whole range of other great neighbourhoods, sites and museums.

We have many great local markets, shops, restaurants and bars, (many of which we have sampled and left a list of recommendations in the flat.) The famous restaurant 'Frenchies' is just around the corner!

The wonderful market street rue de Montorgueil, with it's fabulous food shops, partiseries and cafés, is just down the road.

Three different Metro lines are within a moments walk and Gare du Nord (where the Eurostar comes in) is just 5 minutes in a cab or three stops on the Metro. You can even walk from the Eurostar if you don't have too much luggage!

If you like music, we are surrounded by walking-distance Jazz Clubs including the historical 'New Morning' where Miles Davis used to play. And the Paris Opera is just up the road.

If you've come to Paris to shop you can be at the department stores of Les Grand Boulevards, the arcades of Les Halles or the chic boutiques of rue st Honore in less than 15 mins walk.

Or you can be down to Pont Neuf and across into the Left Bank and St Germain de Pres in a pleasant 20 minute stroll.

Our neighbourhood is very well serviced with pick-up points for Paris' easy-to-use bicycle and electric car rental services.

Despite all this action, our street is small and relatively quite.

It really is hard to find a better location in Paris.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a French/Australian couple who have lived in all kinds of places around the world. We currently live on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean where we own and operate an eco resort called Manicou River.

Why the Owner Chose Bonne-Nouvelle, Paris, France:
We have always loved this part of Paris so when we decided to buy we limited our search to the 2nd Arrondissement. When we bought this apartment it was an absolute mess. We lovingly gut renovated it over a year and finally finished at the end of 2010 just time to spend 2 months there for our honeymoon. Wherever we live in the world, we always call Paris home and we try to spend at least a few weeks in the apartment every year. We designed it to be a home for ourselves, not just a rental apartment and we believe this is reflected in the comfort and details we have included. Please make yourself at home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Perfect location - a quite street in the middle of one of the cities hippest and most up-and-coming neighbourhoods. Underfloor heating - wonderful in winter. Really great shower - unusual in Paris.
