Vacation Property Details
Enter the apartment and turn right to enter the living room. It is a beautiful double room that was opened up to create a feeling of space and light. Two pairs of French doors lead onto the balcony to breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower to the right, gardens of the Champ de Mars and Parisian life below.
A round marble bistro table and chairs sit on the balcony for you to enjoy croissants and café au lait each morning, or toast the sunset in the evening
Between the two French doors stands a pretty antique commode and mirror. On the right is the sofa, which converts to a comfortable double bed for sleeping at night. Additionally, there is a folding twin mattress available as an extra sleeping option.
Comfortable chairs face the sofa, important for relaxing at the end of a long day of sightseeing. An antique Chinese rice box serves as the coffee table, with an English silver plate tea service from the 1940’s. In the corner, find a DVD player which is compatible with American movies, so you can bring your favorites with you. The tv has cable so you can watch CNN, CNBC, Sky News and sample all of the French channels as well.
The small kitchen is on the left, with all the conveniences needed to prepare a gourmet meal: convection oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, 4 burner stove, toaster, coffeemaker and white porcelain dishes.
The dining area sits in front of French doors on the left hand side. It is in pale beechwood and comfortably seats up to 6 people
The large bedroom is at the back of the apartment and overlooks a quiet courtyard. A pretty bay window overlooks the rooftops at the back. The owner restored an antique bench for this nook, for reading and simply enjoying quiet time in Paris.
The queen-sized bed is new and of the highest quality, decorated in Provencal-style toile de jouy fabric. The silk taffeta curtains add to the soft, romantic feel of this room. There are 3 closets on your left for storage, plus bookcase on your right.
Walk down the corridor to find the bathroom on your right. This is a spacious room by French standards, with window overlooking the courtyard.
There is a bathtub with shower, sink, washer/dryer and shelves for storage. The countertop is white marble and contrasts nicely with the white tiles surrounding the bathtub.
The toilet is next on your left, convenient for ‘getting ready’ as it is separate from the bathroom. Find a large closet on the right of the hallway, with plenty of hanging and storage space.
The apartment is surrounded by cafés, shops and restaurants and walking distance to major monuments. It’s 10 minutes walk to the Invalides, 10 minutes to the Trocadéro, the Grand Palais and the couturier's on Ave. Montaigne. 15 minutes walk to the Champs Elysées, 20 minutes walk to Place de la Concorde and the Bon Marché department. 1 block to the Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars. The Champ de Mars Park is a rare bonus in Paris as there are few large parks in the center of the city
