Architect's Eyrie Overlooking River Seine, Paris


Home Description

Our beautiful architect-designed apartment lies in the very heart of the city at Châtelet (1st Arrondissement). It is located on the top floor of an eighteenth century listed building on a quiet leafy street opposite one of the city's most romantic flower markets on the banks of the river Seine. A ten minute stroll in any direction takes you to some of Paris's most famous landmarks. Wander south to the Ile de la Cité and Notre-Dame, east to the Hôtel de Ville, north to the Centre Pompidou and west to the Louvre. The bright and airy apartment has stunning views over central Paris. It has been simply modernised retaining its historic features and its quirky 'artist's garret' feel. However it is also extremely comfortable and well equipped. The living area opens onto a south facing balcony. It has an inviting sofa area with bookshelves, satellite televison and wireless broadband. We often stay in the apartment and it is full of interesting books, DVDs and CDs which you are welcome to use during your stay. We love gathering around our big oak dining table and there is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need to wine and dine. The view from the sink of the twinkling river at night certainly takes the edge off washing up! Both bedrooms are drenched with natural light and have French windows which open onto small balconies. The double beds have extremely comfortable Dunlopillo mattresses and so do the twin beds. There is also plenty of storage space. The bathroom has a good power shower and heated towel radiators. If like us you are passionate about food then this is a great part of the city to base yourself in. One of the country's oldest and most loved gourmet food markets on Rue Montorgueil is a short walk away. Below the apartment is one of the best boulangeries in Paris. There are masses of places to eat within five to ten minutes walk away...from lively sidewalk restaurants to haute cuisine. The apartment is a home from home for us and we hope it will be the same for you.
