About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4-6

My apartment was completely gutted in 2008 and rebuilt into a wonderful Parisian living environment with completely new furnishings and appliances. My apartment is handicap accessible with an elevator, a shower chair and a booster seat for the toilette. If you can appreciate and treat this two-bedroom (each with a queen bed), two bath apartment, complete with a separate living area (a queen sofa sleeper) as your second home. I am sure you will enjoy your stay in Paris. Sorry, no singles or individuals under 30 unless accompanied by a parent. Minimum Rental is seven days. The apartment is over 625 square feet in size and contains nearly all the amenities one could use during one’s stay in Paris. The kitchen is fully equipped… but why bother when there are so many wonderful Bistros, coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants nearby! The facility is also equipped with a washer and dryer, hair dryers, iron and ironing board, two flat screen TV's, a DVD player and WiFi internet access. The wood floors were recently refinished and adorned with Asian rugs.

The apartment building is quiet and we expect our guests to respect the tranquility of its residents. It is not a hotel nor is it party central. It is located in the Heart of the 7th Arrondissement, located off the Avenue de la Bourdonnais. The neighborhood is one of the safest in Paris and a favorite of famous personalities and discerning visitors. The apartment is also equipped with three air conditioning units in the family room, guest bedroom and master bedroom. Helpful people will great you upon your arrival along with a bottle of wine and sparkling water. One will feel like a true Parisian going into a completely furnished apartment while visiting Paris! Open the inside windows to smell the fresh baked pastries. Sorry, no smoking or pets are allowed!

The apartment is a few minute walk from the Eiffel Tower! Take an evening stroll to the Eiffel Tower and watch a dazzling strobe light display on the hour. This building is completely secure and is located on the second floor (3rd American), with easy elevator access! The building was constructed in 1905. A true Parisian building!

Minutes away are the rue St. Dominic with wonderful local shops, pharmacies, grocers, coffee shops and bakeries for your enjoyment. A few blocks down rue St. Dominic is the rue Cler, one of the most famous market streets in Paris and features the best green grocers, patisseries, delicatessens, wine merchants, cheese merchants, fish shops and butchers in Paris. Food is a passion for Parisians and there are numerous Zaggot rated restaurants located in close proximity to the apartment.

I also have a greeter/cleaner in Paris to assist you with any issues you may have with my apartment during your stay. You can read my reviews and you will see my guests are exceptionally pleased with my apartment and the personal and professional service I offer. You are also more than welcome to call me for any questions you have on my apartment or if you have questions of what to "see and do" in Paris! I recently moved to Reno, NV and I have a business (LGI/Laser Graphics, Inc.) in Minneapolis I started 25 years ago. My guests have access to me in the USA and also while they are staying in my Paris apartment (Free calling to USA from my apartment.

Paris is a walking city and from our apartment one is centrally located to all of the Parisian attractions! The Champ-Elysees is approximately a fifteen minute walk! The Seine and the “Bateaux Mouches” river tour are about a 5 minute walk. There are also multiple gardens to visit, sit, read and enjoy the ambiance of Paris!

There are multiple bus stops located near the apartment that will take you in multiple directions of the city. Metro stations are a 5 to 10 minute walk and the RER to Versailles is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment.

There are several bicycle rental stands nearby to enjoy the sights of the city. A suggestion for your first day in Paris is to take one of the open air busses to get a good idea of where the major sights are located in Paris.

Perfect in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We are currently staying in this lovely apartment. We are a family of four with two young boys (ages 8 and 10). The apartment is exactly as described and it is very comfortable for the four of us. We couldn't ask for a better location and have been able to easily explore all of Paris and surrounding areas from here. The owner was an absolute joy to deal with before our arrival. He sent us many, many e-mails to help us to get the most out of our visit. We love the neighborhood and frequent the many restaurants and make a morning stop at the bakery on the ground floor of the building daily. It was so nice to have a representative of the owner meet us and show us how to use everything in the apartment (he even arranged taxi service back to the airport for us). The bottles of sparkling water and nice bottle of wine were an unexpected surprise. The apartment itself was extremely comfortable for 4 people. The beds were heavenly and it was so nice to have 2 bathrooms, 2 showers, a dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Our children watched movies nightly on the DVD player. We greatly enjoyed watching the Eiffel Tower and the light show every night. All in all, our experience was PERFECT IN PARIS!!

Awesome Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and myself spent 9 wonderful days in Paris in Peter's apartment. The location was about as good as it could get, being literally steps away from the Eiffel Tower. We would walk over most every night somewhere between 10pm and midnight to watch the tower light show.

The apartment was well appointed, with two wonderful full baths and living space that was like home. The beds were the best, very comfortable. The air conditioners were very nice, not only for cooling off after long days of sightseeing and walking, but for a little bit of white noise that helps in sleeping.

The cafes that were right downstairs are great for breakfast on the run, and since we were always on the run, this was very convenient. I highly recommend the restaurant 7 e Vin. We celebrated the owners birthday when we were there and he kept us after our meal to have champagne with him.

Peter is a wonderful owner, he spent lots of time on the phone with me answering all of my questions about what to do and avoid in Paris....we arrived almost Parisians! I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone considering a stay in Paris....we will be back again.

Exceptional apartment in Paris, a block away from the Tour Eiffel

  • 5 of 5

This was an exceptional choice; we could not have been happier. The apartment is located a block away from famous Tour Eiffel. It is also located in an amazing neighborhood, full of great restaurants, boulangeries (French bakeries), grocery shopping, and easy access to metro and bus. Peter, the owner, will provide you with the most perfect list of things to do in Paris and where to eat, follow it! Plenty of great advise. When we arrived, we were greeted by the apartment manager, Fernando, who was so nice and helpful. He keeps the apartment spotless; everything was really cleaned and well kept. The beds were amazingly comfortable, never slept so well in a home away from home. Towels and linens of excellent quality. Everything smelled fresh and washed. Kitchen well stock with everything you would need. There is a washer and dryer in the apartment also, a total luxury. We absolutely loved staying in Peter's home. We felt so welcome and comfortable. Can't wait to come back.

Formidable! We invited our teen age grand children for a week in Paris in June 2016 and we loved Peter's apartment.- The facilities were just great, the beds were very comfortable, the location couldn't have been better. The housekeeper was waiting for us upon arrival and he was so helpful that rainy afternoon helping with the bags, explaining where everything was. The apartment is tastefully furnished and VERY clean. I am sure we will ask Peter again to rent his place in a a near future.- Thank you for the great bottle of wine you left on the dinning room table for us.- A bientôt!

What a gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a weeks vacation and LOVED it!! What an absolute gem nestled right behind the Eiffel Tower. We were a party of four and enjoyed the second bathroom quite a bit! I love staying in hotels, but this was so much better and way more affordable than 2 quality hotel rooms for a week. The apartment had all the amentities you'd need. Cute little kitchen, comfy living room and great beds! We loved the location so much and walked to all our destinations each day. Good shops in the area to shop and pick up supplies to bring back to the apartment. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone and only hope that I can go back and stay there sometime again. Peter the owner is great and very accommodating to guests. I give this apartment a major thumbs up!!!!
