About the property

Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 4

This is a hidden gem of a one bedroom apartment just a few steps from the heart of the legendary Rue Cler pedestrian street made famous by its fresh food shops and Bistros. Here you are midway between the Invalides Museum (where Napoleon I is buried), the Quai Branly Museum for indigenous art and the Champs de Mars park with the Eiffel Tower. This is a high value residential district that is home to many diplomats, French government administrators, and academics from the nearby American University. It has easy access to transportation with the Ecole Militaire metro station and bus lines 69, 80, 28, and 92.

This secret spot is a one bedroom apartment on the street level (with handicapped access). The furnishings are classic antiques with brocante pieces. The main room has an unusual sofa with a pull out section underneath that will configure the sofa into two single beds that can be combined into a double. The decor is a mix of eclectic individual pieces that range from the restoration period to the 1930s. There is the sofa w/bed backed by a hanging tapestry, a small drop leaf table used as a coffee table, a few antique chairs, a major decorative cabinet from the period after Napoleon (the restoration period) when they tried to restore the monarchy, and a large upright wooden cabinet in a corner that has the flat screen TV set with DVD player in the top portion and the portable Air Conditioner in the bottom portion. The equipment includes a flat screen TV with English channels, high speed Internet with Wi-Fi, small Stereo system, and telephone with free calls to the US and Australia.

In one corner of the main room there a small kitchen that is fully equipped as for a chef with every imaginable utensil and pot as well as a refrigerator, a full conventional electric oven with a rotisserie, a four element electric cook-top, a microwave, and a good quality clothes washer/dryer machine.

The bedroom has a Queen size bed, dresser, a headboard with built-in lighting and lots of books, a large armoire, and a small desk and office chair where you can sit comfortably to use your computer.

The bathroom has a full size bathtub with wall shower, a basin, and toilet.The apartment is handicapped accessible as there is only one modest step from the sidewalk level to the building interior and to the apartment.

Huge Disappointment

  • 1 of 5

I have gone back and reread the reviews posted. They cannot be for the same apartment. This one was musty and dark. The shutters had to be closed for safety and because at the windows opened to the street. The door had to be triple bolted, I assume for safety. The mustiness caused my granddaughter to have an asthma attack. We had to leave after one night and find other accommodations. There is no air conditioner, only a dehumidifier in an armoire. I wonder if the listing agents have actually seen this apartment? The bed in the bedroom was comfortable but the pillows felt like they were stuffed with straw. The description says it sleeps four - one person could sleep on the couch but the other would have to be on the floor. We had very high hopes because we love that area, so it was especially disappointing not to find it as described.

Great location made a wonderful trip to Paris

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my granddaughter and I on our first trip to Paris. Well appointed kitchen and bathroom. The owner made sure we were greeted, understood all the amenities, and knew he was available at any time. Very comfortable to come back to after a day of sight seeing. It was so convenient to shops, restaurants, groceries and metro. Along with all the wonderful sights, I felt it made our experience very "Parisian." I would love to be able to come back and stay here again

Grand Vin

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this flat numerous times over the past twelve years and keep coming back! The flat is well appointed and the owners continually update the furnishings. The location is great, ground floor just steps away from rue Cler, a wonderful pedestrian street. High speed internet and free calls to USA are a definite plus.

Wonderful for our stay in Paris.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with classic furniture and well-matched, stylish decor. Very well priced considering the arrondissement, furnishings and general quality of the apartment. The kitchen and media are all perfect, not that you will be using them much at all! Excellent area for enjoying classic French cuisine and all sorts of tourist spots were easily accessible by foot, bike or public transport. It really was the Paris experience we'd been hoping for.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week here in January when I escorted my nephew to Paris for his junior semester. It is one of the best equipped rentals I've experienced. All the comforts of home, including AC converters! All appliances worked, the kitchen had everything I might need for cooking, and the bed and linens were extremely comfortable. Best of all, it is a cozy and elegant hideaway. When I didn't feel like being outside I was happy to hang out in this charming apartment. It's obvious that someone took a great deal of care furnishing the place. I plan on returning again soon.

20th time!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this apartment twenty times now and it gets better each time! The location, near rue Cler, is perfect. Close to the Eiffel Tower and the neighborhood is wonderful. The accommodations are very comfortable and the apartment is well equipped.
