Our beautiful one bedroom apartment is superbly located in one of Paris's most desirable neighborhoods, the Carré des Antiquaires. Boutiques, restaurants and cafés surround the charming and quiet street, Rue de Beaune. An easy walk to the Musée d'Orsay, Boulevard Saint Germain, the Louvre Museum and the Seine, there is no better spot from which to enjoy your stay in Paris.
The 17th century building has been completely refurbished and includes a lovely marble entryway and modern elevator. The recently renovated apartment is located on the third French floor. The layout is ideal with the living room facing the street and the bedroom on a quiet courtyard.
Decorated with an emphasis on soothing beige, green and rose tones, the general feeling is one of comfort and calm. The apartment measures 55 square meters though it feels larger due to the excellent floorplan and 3 large windows in the living room. The floors throughout the apartment are done in parquet and marble. Rich area rugs provide contrast and warmth.
The living room offers plenty of comfortable seating, as well as a dining area with antique sideboard. Sit at the round table and enjoy your morning coffee and buttery croissants while the quartier comes to life. Or wind down at the end of the day with a glass of champagne by candlelight, and watch the street lamps glimmer in the growing dusk.
Down filled pillows await on the sink-in comfortable couch. A beautiful daybed with trundle pullout converts to a top quality twin bed. Several side tables with good lamps for reading and a mirror above an antique chest add warmth. Two bookcases hold lots of guidebooks, including the owners’ 'Best of Paris' recommendations for neighborhood walks, restaurants, museums, and boulangeries.
A small hall leads to a half bath with toilet and sink. The bedroom and bathroom are located at the end of this hall, ensuring privacy and quiet from activity in the living room. The bathroom features a full-size tub with fixed showerhead, large sink, towel warmer and lots of storage.
Across the hall, the bedroom offers two twin or one king-size bed made up with good quality sheets, duvets and down pillows for a peaceful night’s sleep. Built-in cupboards on either side of the bed provide both drawers and hanging storage. The window, which looks onto an inner courtyard, floods the room with morning light. Good reading lamps, an antique framed mirror and artwork complete this room.
The kitchen features an open, inviting feel and includes an antique cafe table with chairs and a marble topped bar. Painted cupboards and stone tiled counters lend an air of authenticity but the appliances are all new, the lighting perfect, the Krups coffee maker ready to go. We have just added an espresso machine and milk steamer/frother. Everything you need to cook a gourmet meal (or just heat one up) is here.
You will be met at the apartment by our agent in Paris. He will give you the keys, a tour of the apartment and make sure you are comfortably settled.
Weekly maid service is included in the price.
This apartment is perfect for two people.
We live on the coast of Maine where I was born and raised. My husband adopted Maine as his home since he lived all over the country growing up. We have two daughters ages 24 and 27 and a 13 year old yellow lab named Chance. We love Paris and Provence almost as much as we love Maine. We feel very blessed to have homes in our two favorite places in the world. We are all studying French (except for Chance - he's already bilingual).
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005
My husband and I fell in love with Paris when we were 20 years old and he came to spend Christmas with me, my junior year abroad. Twenty-five years later we fell in love with Paris all over again and bought an apartment on rue de Beaune, in the 7th arrondissement, very near the 6th. We completly renovated the apartment to create a perfect, peaceful nest. We go as often as we can and when we're not there we rent to guests. Our amazing guests sometimes become our very dear friends. Meeting people who love Paris as much as we do has been such a gift.
If you walk out the door to our building and take a right, you'll see the Seine and the Louvre. Take a left from our door and within 5 minutes you're walking down Blvd. St. Germain. Our favorite Sunday ritual is walking up to the organic market on Raspail, buying a roasted chicken and vegetables, some cheeses and a tart for dessert. On the way back to the apartment we stop at the news stand and buy the Herald Tribune. Of course the wine has been chilling in the refrigerator since Saturday afternoon. We each take a couch in the living room, get under quilts and read and sip our coffee until we're hungry for Sunday lunch. After, we take a long walk along the Seine, usually ending up at Chez Francis for a glass of champagne and Eiffel Tower fix!
Just wanted you to know how much we Love your apartment in Paris. It is fabulous ! You were such a big help answering all of our questions before we left Orlando. We found everything just as you described and very clean. The apartment is lovely and the location could not have been better. Even though it was cold and rainy, we could walk almost everywhere.
Arranging with Joseph to have the driver pick us up at the airport was so great! And Joseph greeted us at the apartment and went through everything with us. We had no problems with anything. Having such nice space to come back to each night after sightseeing all day and night was really wonderful. We found Fleur-de-Lis to be extremely comfortable. Having the Proxi so close for a small grocery, a pharmacy within a block as well as the fruit shop, and one of the best boulangeries --- Eric Kayser--- we were in heaven. Wines shops and excellent bistros and cafes were nearby also.
We did walk down to La Grande Epicerie---WOW ! You have to go there to experience it. What an unbelievable place. We did not purchase too much, but what we did get was delicious ! Very pricey !!!!
And New Year's Eve in Paris is one we will never forget ! We had so much fun seeing all the colorful lights at the Eiffel Tower and walking down the Champs-Elysees----thousands of people !!! A sight to always remember !!! We can't wait to go back to Paris and stay at your grand apartment again!! Thank you so much!!

This apartment was everything we wanted and more...having the space to spread out for a week made all the difference to our enjoyment of Paris - our 10th visit, but our first stay in an apartment. From the comfy beds and sofas to the properly equipped kitchen, fabulous shower and great building security, we can't think of a thing that could be done to improve this place! We will definitely be back.
The location of this flat could not have been better, it was close to everything.
My wife and I like to walk and we could walk all over Paris because of the location.
The apartment itself was the perfect fit for two people.
We would definitely look at renting this place again when we return to Paris.
This apartment is in a WONDERFUL location; we always felt safe; everything was as advertised (!); the local greeter and recommended driver and "advisor" were all very helpful and attentive but not intrusive and were very reliable. We ate well, drank well, walked almost everywhere (repeat: wonderful location), came home to this lovely apartment, and slept well in the comfortable big bed. So well-located for museums, shopping, beautiful architecture. Everything in the apartment worked well - coffee maker, clothes washer and dryer, shower - and there were plenty of towels and extra comforters. It was GREAT!
We had a wonderful time in your beautiful apartment. Our luggage was late one day, and your manager Joseph called to check that we were okay. The furnishings were just right, pretty, comfortable and made us feel at home. We tried the bakery and restaurants you suggested and were delighted with the food. The location could not be better, we were close to everything. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home.
We stayed for four nights in this beautiful apartment and lived like locals! We bought groceries and cooked in some; we had great meals within a block from home. We walked everywhere. From this central location we never even took the Metro! And we went as far as the Luxembourg Gardens!
The bed is comfortable. There is adequate storage. The appliances promised were there and functional. There was plenty of hot water. I do not understand why one would want a hotel in Paris unless you need someone to make your bed daily.
The property manager did an excellent job of explaining the use of all the appliances. The house's instruction book told which local restaurants to try. The apartment was clean and well furnished.
Thank you, Lisa for sharing this beautiful experience with us. Feel free to use us as a reference.
