Imagine enjoying your own private retreat in the heart of la ville lumière—a respite from every thrillingly exhausting day of visiting museums and palaces, of strolling along grand boulevards and threading through medieval passageways, and of indulging in too much shopping and eating. Imagine a place without a grumpy desk clerk or maids that barge in while you're in the shower or sleeping late.
At nearly 51 square meters, the apartment is spacious by Parisian standards and can comfortably accommodate up to four guests. A fine collection of original Art Deco furniture and accessories from the 1920's and 1930's is supplemented with modern pieces when comfort and utility count the most—upholstered furnishings, bedding, modern appliances, etc. The walls are decorated with a growing assembly of original early to mid-20th century oil paintings of Paris landmarks.
The sun-filled living room is a welcoming spot for relaxing or entertaining. Originally two rooms, the large living room now accommodates a generously-sized seating area, a dining area and a fully-equipped computer work area. A private balcony, extending the full width of the apartment, is an ideal spot for people-watching, enjoying a simple meal, reading a book in the sunshine or sipping a flute of champagne before dinner.
The apartment's private spaces show equal attention to elegance and convenience. The bedroom, larger than most Parisian hotel rooms and furnished with the finest quality bedding, is a restful spot to gaze out over the rooftops and plan the day's adventures. Sophisticated Italian stone tiles, natural lighting and a glass-walled, double-sized walk-in shower contribute to the calming spa-like atmosphere of the bathroom.
The large, professionally-designed kitchen is furnished with the latest, high-efficiency appliances to make cooking and cleaning tasks a little more pleasurable. The space easily accommodates the preparation of a gourmet meal as you watch the lights atop the Eiffel Tower trace a patch across the night sky. A dinner party for 8? No problem!
We can supply additional services that will make your stay in Paris truly memorable. Just about anything is achievable with sufficient advance planning—private airport transportation, cooking or wine tasting lessons, gourmet treat or luxury bath baskets, dinner reservations, theatre tickets, weekly cleaning services, etc. We encourage you to let us know what you desire to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
As a guest in our vacation apartment, you'll discover sides of Paris that even frequent visitors haven't uncovered. Our neighborhood, les Batignolles, is set away from the most touristy areas and is a place where the Parisians you encounter every day are those who are on their way to work, escorting their children to school, relaxing in the park, or chatting with the merchant next door. You'll find them to be friendly, helpful and genuinely pleased to see you enjoying their neighborhood!
