Even before arriving to the building door, you will begin to notice
that this is a special place- you must first enter an enclosed
cobblestone courtyard with beautiful trees and gardens, a secluded
and quiet area. This transforms the entire atmosphere as you are off
the street and nestled away in this gorgeous newly renovated extra
large Paris home. This is a 2 bedroom plus loft sleeping area with
two full bathrooms. The main part of the apartment is 55 m2 and the
loft measures 22 m2, for an approximate total of 825 sq feet.
Including the large sofa-sleeper in the living room, the flat can
accommodate up to 8 adults. The extra large spaces, especially in
the combo living room/dining room and kitchen area where everyone
can gather, make this a very comfortable apartment. The views are
really splendid, looking over Parisian rooftops and lots of open sky!
This is a top floor apartment (another added bonus that reduces any
potential noise since no one is above you plus it is the only
apartment on the floor!) on the 4th floor European count (4 flights
up - no elevator). It has been tastefully renovated and decorated in
April 2006, with all new appliances and furniture, including quality
comfortable beds. The master bedroom has a Queen size bed for 2
people, the second bedroom has a trundle double bed (pulls out
second bed from underneath) and the loft also has a Queen size bed
(with reduced height/head space or approximately 5 feet high). There
is a large comfortable sofa-sleeper in the living room (also trundle
style which pulls out to form a Queen size bed). The first bathroom
has a tub and shower (fixed to wall) plus WC and the second bathroom
has a shower plus WC.
This is the true Marais area, so central and close to many
interesting sights/things to do, just minutes to two metro stops-
either the St. Sebastien Froissart on line 8 or Arts et Metiers on
lines 3 and 11. You are an easy stroll to all of the fascinating
shops in the Marais, plus great restaurants. You can easily walk to
Hotel de Ville, the Seine, Chatelet or even Place des Vosges. A bit
further just crossing the river is also Notre Dame Cathedral, (free
organ recitals on Sundays!).
The full size kitchen is very spacious and the full size dining
table easily accommodates everyone. You can really use this great
kitchen if you want to cook and/or entertain, as it has a large
fridge/freezer, 4 point stove-top, plus all the necessary
appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave, oven, toaster etc.
For your added convenience there is a washer and dryer (separate
units for ease/speed) in one of the bathrooms also.
