Amazing Paris location
from £219 /night help
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The flat is located in the Sixth District of Paris in an 18th century building on the Seine which has been completely restored. The building was originally a private family mansion. Even today it is maintained in much the same manner by my family and the only two other couples who share the building. This arrangement makes the building very quiet and private, allowing antiques on the landings and engravings to line the walls of the circular stairway.
My flat is located on the third floor. There are approximately 70 steps with three landings spiraling up from the court yard. There is no elevator.
There are 90 square meters of living space featuring two bedrooms, a comfortable bathroom, a large living and dining area and a modern, fully equipped kitchen. All the windows in the flat have a view of St. Chapelle, but just off the living room is a writing desk with a view looking out across the Seine at the Palais de Justice and St. Chapelle.
The flat is sunny and bright with modern and antique furnishing throughout including the original hand made brick floor, original oak ceiling beams and restored linen covered walls. It has been newly redecorated throughout with 18th and 19th century prints and modern double paned windows which eliminate the occasional street noise in the style of the original windows.
The master bedroom has a comfortable 160 cm bed which is larger than a queen-size bed. The room is warm and welcoming and except for the wall mounted TV is is also furnished with period pieces and paintings, all accented by soft lighting.
The quest bedroom, has a queen size bed which can be divided into twin beds with views down into the courtyard and out over the river. It aslo has a wall mounted TV.
The bathroom has a teak and glass shower, a warm wooden floor, wall mounted toilet and stone sink for easy cleaning and in additional to the mirror above the sink, a full length mirror. The bathroom walls are covered with elegant and striking hand made tiles from the south of France.
The building is located on a very quiet, one lane street ending at the Seine offering views of the Louvre to the left and Notre Dame to the right, both a short walk away. It is a pleasant walk to many other famous destinations such as the gardens of the Louvre??, Centre Pompidou, Quartier Latin, Saint Sulpice Church, Jardin du Luxembourg, Musée d'Orsay, Invalides, Concorde, Madeleine, Grand Palais, Champs Elysées - and of course the walking paths along the Seine River going toward Jardin de Plants, the Zoo and the Natural History Museum.
It is in close proximity to two subway stations: Saint Michel and Odeon providing direct access by rail from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. Numerous bus lines can be found not far away to convey you conveniently all over Paris.

"The perfect slice of Paris life"
Cannot say enough good things about this little spot. I almost want to keep it a secret. Perfect location, with a peek at Saint-Chapelle. We loved every minute. The stairs were fine- a great antidote to all the delicious food. So much charm- and amazing storage space for all the luggage and treasures to be out of the way so that you can move in and enjoy this clutter-free, well appointed flat. Enjoy!

"Super apartment, super location!"
Had a great stay at this beautiful apartment, right in the centre of the city, close to great bars, restaurants, the Metro. Best sleep I've ever had, with super comfy beds and the nicest sheets ever! Would definitely stay there again!
