Stunning Open-Space in Central Paris

Gaillon, Paris, France
  • Apartment592 sq. ft.

Apartment, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a 55 sq meter open-space in a typical Haussmannian historic building (18th century) on the first floor. Situated in the 2°Arrondissement, in the very center of the 'snail'! (central Arrondissements in Paris are represented in a snail). The apartment has been recently and finely restored but preserves the fascination of the unforgettable 'belle époque'. The floor and the ceiling are authentic and antique like several pieces of furniture. Old beams, old parquet and logical living design and amenities create charm and space that feel good and are just plain fun to live in.

This big studio is ideal for modern life style. Loft living is different: 'a loft is open space, and creative use of that space that invites people to arrange things to suit their personal lifestyle and taste'. The great part is that the owner/guest decides the use-of-space, not the builder!

The location is really interesting because you are very in a walking distance to the main attractions in Paris (one minute from Opera Theatre, five minutes from Place Vendome, eight minutes from Madeleine Square, ten minutes from Louvre Palais, twelve minutes from Montergeuil, etc). This is a lively area to stay in, with splendid buildings, Grand Boulevards and places such as the Palais Royal, Madeleine surrounded by gardens and restaurants, the 'Bourse' stock exchange, the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens. The rue St Honoré runs through the middle of the first arrondissement with small boutiques from end to end as far as 'Chatelet Les Halles' a popular tourist attraction where you will find Montergueil market .

The Capital of fashion, food, art, music, culture, and history is waiting for you! You are only a few steps from great restaurants, theaters, cinemas, and, of course, nightlife. But, if desired, four Underground lines will take you from home to everywhere in Paris.

The house is in a quiet street that crosses two crowded 'Boulevards'. Anyway the apartment is completely sound-proofed in order to protect your sleep.

Our home would be comfortable for a couple or a family. The four-poster bed and a sofa-bed can sleep up to 4.

The bathroom is new and has shower and jetted Tub (Jacuzzi).

The Kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cook and is hided besides a corner Bar.

A kind concierge (he's like a 'maitre d'Hotel') will greet you and supervise all your needs. We are no smokers and we ask to guests not smoking at our home.

About Mauro Michelangeli

The owners are Italian and they like to spend week-ends in their properties they have in France, Italy and USA or exchange one of their property to stay in the most important locations in the world. They have many interests: they love cooking, biking, jogging, art exibitions, travelling and they are fond of vacation rental and home-exchange. They love to know new people and they are completely satisfied when they guests become their friends.

Why Mauro Michelangeli chose Gaillon

The owners had always the dream to buy an apartment in Paris. The dream came true some years ago. At the beginning they would have liked to keep the apartment only for themselves, but the maintenance costs are quite expensive in Paris! So they have decided to rent or exchange the apartment during the periods they were not there.

What makes this Apartment unique

The properties are very special for the owners because they have been furnished and decorated for themselves. Every detail was chosen with an eye to style and design. The owners are very proud of all their gems and on the basis of the several reviews they have received, it appears that the guests appreciate their efforts.

                                                        An owner and a manager were very kind. The room is clean and widely, all bathrooms also have complete set of something necessary. You could also be relieved for a mail also to answer immediately. I'd like to stay overnight.

                                                        What a great location! Very near the Opera, multiple metro stations- so easy to get around from here, and a lovely area to wander on foot. This was one of the largest apartments I've rented in Europe, and certainly the most well equipped! I had resigned myself to curly (read frizzy) hair for the whole of our vacation, but thanks to Carmella's thoughtful placement of electrical devices, I was able to have myself in some of our travel photos. Everything went without a single glitch- the wealth of information we received ahead of time made getting to the apartment super easy.

                                                        A great visit- thanks so much!

Big living room / bedroom, centrally located, and a great bakery meters from the apt. The internet access was instantly resolved; however, we could not figure out the washer / dryer since we don't know French. I really appreciate the owners quick responses and fast deposit refund process. I would recommend this establishment and hope to stay here again.
