This charming studio is located on the second floor* of a XIXth century building equipped with a lift. The access is secured by a digicode entrance and a second gate with an intercom. The two windows are double glazed so the apartment is quiet, plus there are shutters on the outside too.
*Remember that in France we count ground floor then lst floor, etc.
This 32 sqm studio apartment is very charming. It can accommodate two or three people with a comfortable queen size bed (160x200 cm) and a large single bed (90x190 cm) that can also be used as a sofa. (Both mattresses are 'Bultex' brand, specifically chosen for comfort. It also features a table with three modern chairs, a large flat-screen TV, DVD player and two storage spaces: a wardrobe with mirror and sliding doors and a built-in storage area. The wooden floor and the walls features artworks from a French contemporary artist and adds to the charm and peaceful ambiance to this room. From the main room you have access firstly to the kitchen. It is fully equipped with stoves, ceramic hob, micro-wave and oven and a washing-machine. In the kitchen there are two stools for the built-in table. From there you will then reach the bathroom. It features a large walk-in shower and the toilet. This lovely studio has just been renovated recently (2012).
It is bright and comfortable for short stays as well as longer stays.
This apartment is particulary well laid out. There are many typically parisien shops and market nearly, so it’s very convenient;
Maid, towels, toiletry kits and linen are available at your arrival and there is a very useful towel heater in the bathroom.
There are two electric fan.
The apartment is located in a beautiful, central area of Paris, right in the middle of the artistic area - in the 9th district that has recently becomes the trendiest neighbourhood in Paris but also has the quiet security and comfort of residential Paris.
The studio is one block away from Rue des Martyrs recently described in the New York Times Travel section: 'as the spine of a neighborhood that offers magic in a compressed time and space. There is no better place to rent an apartment and to pretend, even for a brief time, to live in Paris.' The Rue des Martyrs and surrounding streets have many French restaurants, theatres, cafés, traditional bakeries, wine and cheese and speciality food shops, and boutiques. Some shops like Boucherie Billebault, a popular butcher shop, have been operated by the same families for more than a century.
This studio's neighbourhood is but a mere 5 minute walk away from Parisian landmarks - it is just northeast of the Galeries Lafayette department store, Palais Garnier Opera, and the Grands Boulevards. It is also south of the Moulin Rouge and the Basilica Sacre-Coeur at Montmartre. The rest of Paris is easy to reach from the three metro stations which are very near to the flat. The Notre Dame de Lorette and Le Peletier stations (line 7) have trains direct to the Left Bank, Notre Dame and, the Louvre, whilst St Georges metro (line 12) (entrance is a gem!) goes direct to Madeleine, Place de la Concorde, Musée d'Orsay, Montparnasse and the Latin Quarter. Instead of the subway, you may also enjoy bus routes that will lead you directly to the Champs Elysées, the Louvre, Latin Quarter, Luxembourg, Gare Saint-Lazare and Gare du Nord.
Metros: Notre Dame de Lorette and Le Peletier stations (line 7), St Georges metro (line 12)
Buses: 26, 32, 42, 43, 67, 74, 85
Airport: Nearest airport is Charles de Gaulle Airport, half an hour by RER B train from central Paris (Gare du Nord or Chatelet stations)
The 9th arrondissement from www.howto.co.uk :
What then makes it so enticing ? Firstly, it is precisely the centrality and accessibility of the 9th which is one of its attractions. In the quaint Streets of the village St-Georges centred on the place St-Georges, the rue des martyrs and rue Notre Dame-de Lorette, and the Gustave-Toudouze place, the apartments are well built, having first been constructed by nineteenth century bankers.
The rue des martyrs is a bustling market street, in an area of Paris that has drawn many show-business and fashion celebrities as neighbours to the bankers and young middle-class in a truly village atmosphère. The street has turned it into a pedestrian reserve on sundays. What is just as appealing as the contrast in this neighborhood is the intimacy. This is a small, easily maneuverable area where people still greet each other on the street and merchants look out for their own.
Number of theatres in the area. The 9th has always had a reputation as an artist’s quarter, and Delacroix, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Bizet, and Berlioz all made their homes here. The avenue Frochot was home to the Renoir dynasty, and today is an exclusive enclave for films stars
and fashion designers. The area is known as the 'Nouvelle Athenes'- the New Athens of the nineteenth-century intellectual elite. The Museum of the Romantic Life (Musée de la Vie Romantique) in the rue Chaptal is the former home of Georges Sands where she received her lover Chopin. This area too has a bourgeois calm about it.Gustave Moreau Museum is in the rue de la Rochefoucauld.
To the south, the Grand Boulevards, offer a nonstop parade of shopping and entertainment. The boulevards between La Madeleine and the Opéra offer the chicest shopping, whilst the great Parisian department stores of Galeries Lafayettes and Printemps are on boulevard Haussman.
Cinemas are concentrated on boulevard des Italiens, whilst the boulevards Montmartre and Poissonnière still play home to many theatres. In the Faubourg Montmartre, a significant Jewish community is based in the streets between the boulevards, the rue de Provence, and the Folies-Bergères. In contrast, the quiet rue Drouot is the headquarters of the main Paris auction houses and stamp-collectors. Weaving their way between the two streets and the boulevards, a series of covered shopping galleries or passages offer an enticing taste of nineteenth-century Paris.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of the 9th is that to go out and enjoy yourself, you need never be very far from home. The world of entertainment and all the major shops are at your doorstep, whilst you have the chance to live in either neat calm contentment or a livelier more haphazard village atmosphère.
