About the property

Spacious Luxurious 1 Bed Apartment 1 Bathroom

This is our own apartment which we use when we come to Paris to stay as we live in the south-west of France. It is very comfortable and filled with lots of beautiful antiques and artwork that we have collected over the years; it feels very homely and of course very Parisian!

The apartment is open plan with a large kitchen and living area and a spacious bedroom with a king size bed. It is located in one of the prime residential areas of Paris in the 8th arrondissement, yet is only a 3-minute walk from the Champs Elysees and all its marvels. This is a very chic area of Paris, surrounded by 4 and 5 stars hotels, plus luxury stores and amazing restaurants. If you want a shopping experience then this apartment is situated in the middle of the most exclusive shopping area of Paris. All the best shops in the world are located on your doorstep - Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari, Armani, etc and the outlet store la Piscine.

The location of the apartment gives you all the advantages of the Champs Elysees without the hustle and bustle on living on it, as it is tucked away just behind on a small quiet street. As this is a residential area there are bakeries, grocery stores, a post office and a chemist located just next to the apartment. It is really living the true Parisian experience. It is very safe and there are police cars constantly patrolling the area.

Avenue Montaigne (most excusive shopping street in Paris) and the Arc de Triomphe also are just on your doorstep, along with the famous Lido cabaret, plus the Eiffel tower is a short stroll away too. Walking down towards the other end of the Champs Elysees is the Tuilleries gardens and in the lead up to Christmas this is the most beautiful spot in Paris as the avenue is set alight with lights and Christmas markets, plus summer and winter there is a huge ferries wheel, a must for a view of Paris buy night. About a 30-minute walk away you have the Louvre, the Palais Royal, Musee d’Orsay and beyond this is the Marais area. You really do not need to take public transport as all the major attractions are walking distance from the apartment or a quick stop on the central and safe metro line.

The apartment is 70 square meters, which is huge for a one-bedroom apartment in Paris and is perfect if you need to entertain. The entry and living/dining room are on the ground floor and the bedroom is on the floor below. It is completely secured with a door code, another security door, then the apartment front door. This is a residential building with French occupants of high standing so it is very well maintained.

The large windows of the apartment can be opened and have discreet security grills. There is a huge, fully equipped brand new kitchen, with everything required to cook a 5-course dinner, plus a large dinning table for 4 people, which would double as a lovely bright working area. All the appliances are brand new and of the highest quality. There is a refrigerator with small freezer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, washing machine/dryer, 4 cooking elements plus all new French cutlery and crockery plus everything else you would expect in a kitchen.

Through to the living area is a lovely comfortable sofa, which folds out allowing a child to stay or the occasional guest. There is a large flat screen TV with cable and English channels, plus or course Wifi Internet through out the apartment. There is a telephone and all calls landline/mobile to USA, Canada and France are free.

Take the staircase down and you arrive into a lovely bright and large bedroom, completely sound proof from the outside world. Great for getting over jetlag. It is what the French call sous sol (basement) however is nothing like a basement at all, it has a new ensuite bathroom and a window feature which provides plenty of light. Please note there is no direct sunlight - the window is a lighting effect, however as you will see from the photos it is very bright and luminous. There is a huge double wardrobe with plenty of room for hanging all clothes plus lots of room for all the shopping! The toilet is located here so you have easy access during the night. Please look at the stairs and take note they may not be suitable for elderly people or very young children.

The bed is a brand new king size bed of 160cms, with all new luxury linen. Linen and towels will be provided and are include in the rental fee.

Our concierge or myself will be there to meet you and show you through the apartment and answer any questions you may have about the apartment or Paris in general.

If you want a memorable and very Parisian experience staying in a prime location then this truly is the best apartment plus we always look forward to meeting people from other places!

We hope to hear from you soon.

About Anne CHARON

We are are a retired French couple who live in the SW of France but come to Paris to see our children. We have recently completely redone this apartment so everything is brand new and fully functional. We both grew up in Paris and love this area as it is vibrant and very central to everything Paris has to offer as well as being safe and in an upmarket area.

Anne CHARON purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Anne CHARON chose Chaillot

The location of our apartment is truly fantastic. It's in a very exclusive and safe area which has fantastic local boutique stores plus all the basics expected from Paris...bakeries, cafes, grocery stores etc...Avenue Montagne which has the most exclusive shops in Paris is only 2 minutes walk, plus the Champs Elysees is a 3 minute walk.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is really so spacious and bright, it's so lovely to unwind in and the bedroom is calm and cool in summer.

Great location, clean, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son (teenager) and I stayed here the last week or so in December. The location is amazing, you can walk to almost everything. The apartment has everything you need and is super cute, and Anne, the owner, provides so much valuable information about the apartment and Paris, that alone is worth the stay. And she is quick to respond to any questions. I would say the spiral stairs leading to the bed and bath are a bit of a challenge, however, Anne discloses that in her overview of the property, and we managed just fine, carrying our delicious Nescafé coffee down them just fine! Also, there is an odor from the bathroom, from being an older building and downstairs, but this would not prevent us from staying there again. I imagine all apartments in Paris have their quirks! The kitchen is modern the apartment is decorated nicely, and honestly we thought Anne was an amazing host with a wealth of information. Again, location is fabulous, grocery, cafes, champs Elysees a stones throw away...I highly recommend this apartment.

Great stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this apartment. The apartment is comfortable, clean, and as described. The location is great, we felt safe in this neighborhood. It is very close to the George V and Kleber metro stops, which go directly or connect to most tourist destinations. You can also walk to many of these destinations from the apartment. (Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysees, Eiffel Tower, and more.) The housekeeper/concierge is very nice. She does not speak English, but gets her point across. Anne, the owner is very available and responsive in the event of questions or concerns by phone or text. The kitchen and bathroom and modern/updated. The kitchen is very organized and well stocked. Better than most apartments, homes, or condominiums we have rented. As noted in previous reviews, you cannot deny there is an odor in the apartment each time you enter. It airs out when you open a window, and you also accommodate to it. It is an old building, like many in Paris, so it must happen to many of them, but you wonder what it is. We would stay in the apartment again.

March 2016 stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, everything is in working order---high tech induction stove top, microwave, oven, washer/dryer. There are plenty of clean dishes and cooking utensils, paper supplies, towels, cleaning supplies, etc. The bed was comfortable. The location can't be beat----no noise from the street or surroundings but very close to the Arc de Triomphe, very safe, and close to the metro and buses. Convenient close grocery store and bakeries The direct France Air bus line from the airport was so convenient. Anne is considerate and provides welcome snacks and was very attentive to any concerns we had. The cleaning lady was also friendly and checked on us to see if we needed anything. As mentioned by others, the stair are narrow, but my daughter and I had no problem with them. The bathroom is located in the basement attached to the bedroom. As it is an older building, when the apartment was closed up, we noticed a smell (some days stronger than others), but once the windows were opened for fresh air, it cleared up quickly. It was a minor distraction that is likely with most older buildings in the area.

Best Kitchen in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location with the best kitchen in Paris, very well equipped and spacious. We are frequent travelers to Paris and found this apartment was one of the best we have found to date. We were in Europe for the Christmas markets and used the apartment for 5 weeks as a base for overnight trips by train to the many wonderful markets. We truly enjoyed our trip and this apartment was part of it. Lots of living space in a secure building. We also spent a lot of time in Paris, It was easy walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumphe, and Champs-Elysees. For those who like to walk the streets of Paris, you can continue on to the Place de Concorde, Grand Palais and Pont Alexandre. The metro stop, George V, is a five minute walk from the apartment and becomes your access point to the rest of Paris. We found the privacy and noise of a street level apartment not a problem. The concierge, Regina, was very helpful, congenial, and kept the apartment spotless for us. Anne Charon, the owner, was equally as helpful and very willing to go out of her way to insure a great stay. We have already recommended this apartment to our friends.

Great location and everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, just perfect for my husband and myself during our week stay. Anne was wonderful to work with, very quick to respond, and her concierge that greeted us made sure we got settled. It can get a bit stuffy downstairs in the bedroom, so I would recommend getting a small fan to help. There were wonderful cafes, bakeries and shops nearby. We were just a few blocks from the metro and could walk or use the metro to get anywhere we needed. Highly recommend!

Car: not necessary

Our apartment is so very central, close to all the main attractions Paris has to offer. It is located in the very exclusive area just by the Champs Elysees where the most luxury shops and 5 star hotels are located. The area is very safe and very upmarket.
