Property description

Our Yellow Flat is a well designed, tastefully decorated and completely renovated apartment. It is a comfortable, bright and secure home away from home for your next trip to Paris.

The Yellow Flat is located near the top of the Champ De Mars, the large park that runs perpendicular to the Eiffel Tower in a building that abuts Avenue De Suffren. This is a perfect location from which to easily explore the city, close to all forms of transit (metro, bus and taxi). It is an easy walk to the Eiffel Tower and the Seine.

The Yellow Flat is located on the sixth floor of our building with a modern elevator that was installed in 2010 and pass code protected. Both the bedroom and living rooms feature floor to ceiling windows, keeping the flat cheery and sunny. You look at the beautiful Parisian skyline and there is no one above you to disturb your stay.

Do you love to cook? We hope that you will enjoy our brand new kitchen, renovated in 2012 as much as we have. It features an induction stove top and full sized oven and refrigerator. It is stocked with all the gear that you need to make a gourmet meal taking advantage of the quality ingredients that are everywhere.

Be sure to have a glass of wine or breakfast on our balcony at you look out at the Parisian skyline.

And while the neighborhood is very lively during the day, our street is quiet so you sleep well at night.

This is a wonderful Parisian neighborhood full of unique shops, gourmet food stores, sidewalk cafes, authentic not touristy restaurants and people.

It is an excellent location, close to two high quality pedestrian friendly shopping streets Rue Cler and Rue du Commerce. There is easy access to transit via the metro from La Motte Piquet Grenelle only two blocks away (which has three separate metro lines), busses and taxi stands that reach the rest of the city with ease.

The apartment has a separate bedroom, a living room, bathroom and kitchen, about 400 square feet in size with plenty of storage. There is an outdoor terrace with table and chairs.

It is fully stocked with all of the amenities we want when we stay at the flat as it is our home in Paris when we travel.

We have a bi-lingual manager in Paris who will greet you on arrival and is ready to help you with your questions and concerns. Every guest is greeted professionally and offered a welcome basket which is tailored to your time of arrival. Fresh croissants in the morning, baguette and cheese in the afternoon and evening. Ask about our unique concierge services, one on one help in planning your time in Paris.

Should you wish we will for a reliable driver to pick you up and take you back to the airport and even stock your fridge with gourmet goodies. Let us know if you are interested in either of these options and we will take care of it.

We refer to our apartment in Paris as the Yellow Flat and when you look at our pictures you see why. Your can also learn more about the flat and the neighborhood by visiting our new website, see the link below.

Features include:

WiFi with broadband.
Flat screen television with cable and international channels.

A good sounding stereo with MP3 input. Bring your Ipod.
Full size sleeper couch that you can comfortably sleep on.
Induction cooking element and full sized oven.
Renovated stylish kitchen with everything you need to cook.
Spacious shower with lots of hot water and plenty of pressure.
Extensive library of travel guidebooks. Don't bother to bring one.

Another great feature of this apartment is the surrounding neighborhood and all of the restaurants that we love. They are friendly, unpretentious and quality is excellent. There are lots of reviews for you to enjoy on our blog, also linked below.

There is always something to do including an open air market twice week and grocery shopping is easy and close.

The Quai Branley museum is 10 minutes away and Musee D'Orsay and Les Invalides 15 to 20.


Here is a comment from recent guests (and we encourage you to click through and read more;

'We are just home last night from our wonderful week in Paris. Your apartment is wonderful and was perfect for us. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed your place. We loved the instruction book with the pictures, the decor, the washer/dryer, the location, and the personal touches. The kitchen was well supplied and easy to work in. The nice bathroom and shower were also a plus. And, we couldn't believe how quiet the neighborhood was!! We will definitely be back and we also will recommend your place to friends and family Our experience was outstanding. Thank you so much.'

We love this apartment and know that you will enjoy it just as we do when in Paris.

Enjoy Paris and the Yellow Flat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Many years ago a young French woman had a dream about coming to America that wouldn't leave her mind. Little did she realize that she would settle in the San Francisco Bay Area. Years later she and her husband Jules realized their dream when they purchased their 'pied a tere' in Paris, the Yellow Flat. The Yellow Flat is our base when our family is fortunate enough stay in Paris and we are truly glad that our guests have felt the same. It is our home away from home and we take good care of it. We are sure you will agree that it is a special place.

Why the Owner Chose Grenelle, Paris, France:
We love the access to the green open spaces of the large park, the Champ De Mars and the Seine. We love to walk in Paris and this is an ideal location. What a luxury to have Eiffel Tower and the Champ De Mars park in your evening stroll, whether in the afternoon or at midnight. Easy transportation. You can get anywhere in Paris, or out, by metro, bus, RER or train from our flat. There are three metro lines at the closest metro station. The busy day time atmosphere, the quite evenings and the view from the balcony.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Breakfast on the terrace. Reading on the couch. Gourmet shopping on Rue Lourmel and Rue Cler. Baked goods at Poilaine and cheese from Marie Cantal. Exploring the neighborhood, finding new stores and interesting sights. New restaurants and things to do all the time.
