Tranquility in the Eighth
Our apartment is on the fourth floor (the fifth American floor) of a beautiful mid-nineteenth century Haussmannian building.
It is, in fact, just across the hall from another 2 bedroom apartment that can be rented through PerfectlyParis called « Quartier de l’Europe ».
If you are a larger groups and wish to stay as close to each other as possible, you may consider renting the two together.
The apartment gets a lot of natural daylight and is very quiet which should be just what you need when you need a break from all the sightseeing.
We have kept the classic French details such as moldings, marble fireplace and herring-bone parquet floors, comfortably furnished with a mix of modern French and Asian furniture.
The main bedroom with Wedgwood-blue walls has a large, queen-size bed.
The second bedroom has two twin-size beds.
All of the beds have firm Simmons mattresses.
The dining room and living room are contiguous, with beautiful views through floor-to-ceiling windows.
The living room is furnished with a comfortable (non-convertible) couch, two leather armchairs, a plush Oriental rug and a coffee table made from an antique door.
The living room has a flat-screen TV with broadband cable (including CNN) as well as a multi-region DVD player and a binder of movies.
For those who need to stay ‘plugged in’, the apartment includes a new iMac computer with Microsoft Office.
There is also a wi-fi broadband internet connection that you can access from your laptop.
For entertainment, we have stocked the apartment with several novels and French-themed books.
The dining table can comfortably accommodate six people if you should have guests visiting you.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances, cookware and tableware including a combination washing machine/drier.
There is a large amount of closet and storage space for your clothes and other belongings throughout this apartment.
We hope you enjoy your stay in this apartment.
As with all Parisian apartments, we ask guests to remove their shoes when entering the home so as not to disturb our neighbors.
Our apartment is located in the fashionable Eighth Arrondissement, in the heart of the ‘Europe’ district.
Developed in the middle of the 19th century, this quartier was a favorite subject of many Impressionist painters.
Our building on rue Clapeyron appears in the famous painting by Gustave Caillebotte called ‘Paris Street, Rainy Day’.
The view outside the main windows is a classic Parisian vista of Haussmannien façades, and below, you can see Place de Dublin with its many trees and cafés, bakeries and other small shops.
