Sunny 2 bedroom with great view in Paris

Summary:
Lovely apartment, 50m2 (540 sq ft); great location, in the 15th arrondissement, between Porte de Versailles and Convention metro stops. Very close to all amenities (rue de Vaugirard, 2min walk), such as restaurants, the Exposition Center, stores (Monoprix, Picard, Franprix), movie theaters and shopping malls. Ideals for couples or professionals.
Description:
This very bright apartment is modern, located in a great neighborhood near public transportation, and convenient to shopping, restaurants and groceries. Lots of sunlight pour through the windows due to it being south facing. The view is very rare for Paris, allowing you to gaze out over the Parisian skyline. There are windows on both sides of the apartment (that open over the courtyard and the street), which allows a pleasant breeze to flow through during the summer months. There’s an elevator for easy access, and the apartment is high up on the top floor, 7th floor (almost all Parisian buildings only have 6 floors, so you’ll be above most other buildings in the city) allowing a great view of Paris from the windows or the balcony! From the windows and balcony, you can see tennis courts as well as the very interesting tracks decommissioned rail system that used to run around Paris before the 1930s. The entire apartment has been recently renovated. Hard wood floors give the space a clean and elegant feel. The kitchen is fully furnished with everything that you need to prepare most meals. There is a washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher so that you don’t have to wash dishes by hand! There is also an oven, a microwave, and a stove – as well as plates, cutlery, glasses and all essential cookware. This is the perfect place for a couple looking to be centrally located in a modern apartment in Paris :) PS: We have a cat - she is coming with us when we leave, but her cat tree-house will stay in the living room.

You will have access to the entire apartment and everything in it. This includes:
-2 Bedrooms: one with a king bed, and one with a bed-mezzanine bed (1m4 high) and a bed below with a desk on the side. The sizes of the mattresses are: 200*90 and 180*77.
-A Kitchen with all appliances and utensils
-A bathroom with an Italian shower and a toilet
-A living room with a large sofa (sits 3) There is fiber optic WIFI Internet and cable TV with hundreds of channels, including some English speaking channels (National Geographic, BBC, etc.).
There are two desks, side by side, on the left side of the room.

The neighborhood:
The apartment is located in the middle of a lively neighborhood with easy transportation to other parts of Paris. The apartment is on a side street that gives on the Rue de Vaugirard, one of the most vibrant road in Paris, where you can find plenty of places to shop, grocery stores, a movie theater, and much more! There is a large and calm park within a 2-minute walk from the apartment, which is one of the rare parks in Paris that allows you to sit on the grass – a lovely place to relax in the sun or in the shade on nice summer days! An interesting urban element of this neighborhood is that the 19-mile ‘Petite Ceinture’ runs through it. These are tracks from the old Parisian train system, and they can be seen right from the apartment! Train service along the tracks was suspended in 1930s (no trains run through them anymore, so there is absolutely no noise), and it is a nice green space that gives you a privileged and rare glimpse into Paris of the past. The main Parisian exposition center (Parc des Expositions) is a short 5-minute walk from the apartment, and expositions regularly change.

Transport:
Transportation is very convenient. There is metro (line 12), the tramway, and multiple buses all within a 3-minute walk. If you are coming from Charles de Gaulle airport, you can either take the metro or a cab. The cab fare is between 50 and 70 euros and takes about 1 hour (if there aren't traffic jams). By metro, take the RER B to Cite universitaire), then take the Tramway 3 direction Pont de Garigliano, Get off at Porte de Versailles. You then need to go straight on rue de Vaugirard (the long street perpendicular to Boulevard des Maréchaux). The rue Lacretelle is located to your right (2nd street) as you walk up rue de Vaugirard. It is a 5-10min walk from the tramway.
