Heart of Paris, close to Eiffel Tower, Latour Maubourg

Details

Home Description

 This 2 bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms modernized flat has been recently renovated. It directly overlooks the tomb of Napoleon and the Invalides and is two minutes from Latour Maubourg Metro (line 8), two stops south of Concorde (lines 1 and 8).

On the first floor, with lift, this is a 21st-century apartment in a 'Belle Epoque' building. It has one large bedroom with ensuite bathroom, one smaller twin bedroom with shower room ensuite, separate WC, modern glass-walled kitchen, largely combined salon and dining room.


You will find 200Mb broadband Internet (max) with RJ45 outlets and good wifi, 3 TVs (one with Skype, the others with YouTube), and modern designer furniture. The apartment is managed on behalf of the owner by 'www.RentYourParis.com', a top Parisian servicing agent who can provide additional services (payable) as required and who will deal with all meet, greet, contracts and payments and minor problems guests have with appliances etc.

As the owner, this is my Paris home and my wife and I regularly stay in the apartment.

 

The apartment is fully double glazed throughout keeping it cooler in summer and warm in winter. All bed linen and towels are supplied along with a welcome pack. You will need to supply an advance deposit against damages equivalent to one week's rental.

We are happy to welcome children but no pets. This is a totally no smoking apartment. Smoke detectors are fitted.

The apartment is heavily booked often with repeat clients booking directly, and the owner does his best to fit his own needs and dates around those of his clients.

The apartment block is quiet, bourgeois and French. The co-owners and residents value their calm and peace but they have all been charming to our guests.

Last but not least, the apartment comes with a selection of DVDs for all ages, some board games, a selection of books on Paris, the fine 'peacock' evening dinner service as well as child-friendly crockery etc.

Fantastic Apartment in the Heart of Paris

We were looking for an apartment for a ten day vacation in Paris with space for our family of four. This apartment fit the bill perfectly: a master bedroom with a queen sized bed (unusual for Paris) and a separate bedroom with two twin beds for the kids. The apartment is clearly not just used for rental--the owner stays here during his trips to Pais and the apartment shows it: Bose sound system, high speed internet, television equipped with Skype, fully appointed kitchen, clothes washer, dishwasher, etc. Everything you would need for an extended stay in Paris. And did I mention location? Right across from Invalides which we stared at each night as the sun went down and a short three minute walk to Rue Cler. The owner was responsive within twelve hours to any question from the time of booking to when we checked out. I cannot recommend this rental more.

New Years in Paris

This apartment is the perfect backdrop for a week in Paris. The location is in a quiet neighborhood despite being close to everything. Minutes from the metro, Eifel tower, with cheese, bread and wine stores being only blocks away. The view to the Invalides is perfect for sipping wine in the living room. The apartment itself lends itself to families or in our case 3 moms in Paris to watch our kids march in the New Years day parade. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One room has two twin beds (that can be pushed together) and the other a queen. The showers in each bathroom have great pressure. There is only one toilet in the front of the apartment but that was not a problem at all. For those who don't like to haul luggage up stairs there is a small elevator to help. Our only complaint had nothing to do with the apartment - it was unusually cold in Paris (I bought a new cute coat to compensate) but we are used to the cold - we are all from Chicago area. Hope to be back again.

Beautiful apartment, perfect location

This is a spectacular apartment in the perfect location. I loved having the windows open and enjoying the beautiful summer weather and the view of Napoleon's tomb. We also loved all of the markets, shops and restaurants on Rue Cler - just a few blocks away - and the surrounding neighborhood. My wife, 17 year old daughter and I enjoying everything about it for a week. It is in a great older residential building but the apartment is very modern. The pictures are very representative. It is two bedroom, two baths - the baths both have a shower and sink (also tub in master which my wife loved). There is only one toilet/room - which is between the entrance and kitchen. This was unusual to us but not an issue at all. The location was perfect with a metro stop about a block away that allowed us great access to all of Paris. There is also a taxi queue there. The road in front of the apartment is one way - so we had some trouble with navigation on the bus. The front bedroom and living room are on the street side. There is some traffic noise if the windows are open but it is very quiet with the windows closed/latched. The master bedroom is in the interior of the building and is very quiet and the bed is comfortable. There is a small elevator in the building. The apartment is up one level from the street. A rental/management company is used for the apartment. The owner was in the process of changing management companies during our stay so there were a few unexpected things to deal with but nothing too intrusive. We loved every minute of our Paris vacation in this apartment. The wifi worked well and there was tons of information about things to do and local recommendations. We would definitely recommend it and would try to stay here again if we return to Paris in the future.

Highly Recommended Selection

We can't say enough good about 72 LaTour Maubourg. Wonderfully appointed apartment, great location (within a block of the Metro, taxi stand and bus stop(s)), abundant local restaurants, some do-able street markets, with both the Eiffel and Rue Cler in the neighborhood. We felt safe but still close to the center of many good things. The apartment is well-maintained and overseen by the owner as well as rental agency. We were very comfortable and will return as often as possible.
