Great location! High quality features! Strong WIFI connection and optional maid service! Long stays welcome.
This renovated one bedroom has been transformed into a gorgeous living space for your Paris stay. Always mindful of quality and detail, we've used top quality materials--hardwood floors, granite counter tops, a Duravit sink, and created an Italian tiled shower with our favorite extra large tiles.
The apartment is 350 sq. feet and has high ceilings throughout, but notably in the living room where we raised them to bring in as much light as possible from the skylight given that this is the only natural light source.
The building and entrance hall
This is a beautiful old building (late 19th century construction) which has been impeccably maintained. Enter the building and keep straight towards the end of the hall and our apartment is the last door on the left. On the right are glass doors which open onto a courtyard and a bit farther down on the right is another apartment. You are therefore in a very calm and quiet position in the building.
Entrance and Kitchen
The high ceilings are definitely a very nice feature of this apartment. The small entrance therefore feels spacious, thanks to this as well as the closets with sliding glass doors, which provide ample space for hanging and folded clothing. To the right of the entrance is the galley kitchen, with it's lovely light gray granite worktop, wood cabinets and most importantly (in our opinion) a Nespresso maker. The kitchen is fully equipped. You may not want to cook, but there is an oven, microwave, refrigerator, stove top with two burners, dishwasher and an additional Italian coffee maker for those who prefer.
Living and dining area
Across from the kitchen is the living/dining area. The glass-topped table is designed so that the chairs can be placed fully underneath, thereby allowing for more space.
Diagonally across from the dining area is the wall mounted TV. The sofa bed next to it, a high quality trundle, converts to two twins if necessary. It's long and comfortable for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The dining table chairs are also padded and comfortable and can serve as relaxing armchairs.
Bedroom and bath
On the other side of the kitchen, to the left of the entrance, is the bedroom. We actually moved the original location of the bedroom door to allow for more space in this room. We also created a wall across from the bed with niches for the television and for the LED lights placed behind the glass panel to create the impression of natural light--the room's window gives onto the building's main hall—this window does still provide some light thanks to the glass doors on the other side, but we thought it could be a nice touch to add this extra feature.
Our favorite part of the bedroom is the Toile de Jouy wallpaper matched with the deep blue color on the walls which provides such a cozy atmosphere.
We also chose high quality Pirelli bedding, but as this apartment is so quiet, we believe that it would be impossible not to get a good night's sleep!
The small bathroom has been designed to maximize the space. The lovely Italian shower, while not huge, is large enough to be comfortable and we have installed Grohe thermostatic taps. The Duravit sink blends perfectly with the tile color, and across from the WC is a towel warmer neatly placed above the combination washer dryer.
What's really nice about the apartment's location, is that although it is on a very calm and quiet street, you can quickly arrive either at the hustle and bustle of St. Germain des Pres and the rue du Bac area, or alternatively at the more sprawling areas of the 7th towards Invalides and the Eiffel Tower. The Musee Rodin is the closest tourist attraction -- it's about 2 minutes by foot from the apartment.
