Charming furnished balcony apartment in central Paris

This quiet apartment, on the 4th floor with an elevator, is suitable for a single person or a couple without kids. It's in a lovely residential neighbourhood in central Paris, safe for women, with great transport links.

The apartment has one double bedroom with a large wardrobe, shelves and a chest of drawers. There's a quiet study with a big desk; a small, fully-equipped kitchen; a light-filled living room; a bathroom with rain shower over mid-sized bath; and separate WC. The balcony runs alongside the bedroom and living room.

There is also a friendly cafe in a leafy square at the bottom of the street.

The apartment is within walking distance of the Eurostar terminal at Gare du Nord (10mins, or 15mins with luggage), as well as Montmartre and the Opera Garnier. Gare du Nord is also on the direct line (RER B) to the 2 main airports.

There are 3 metro lines (12, 7 and 2) - the 12 for instance is direct to rue de Buci metro for Sciences Po and the 7 is direct to Jussieu - as well as various buses. The 85 for example runs directly across the Seine to the Luxembourg gardens.

The rue des Martyrs, a great food-shopping street with cafes, restaurants, bakeries and 2 supermarkets, is nearby, and a farmers' market operates at the top of my street on Fridays.

There are also 2 local swimming pools in walking distance.

The 54m2 (581 sq foot) apartment is in a Haussman-style building and is fully furnished, with an expandable dining table, wooden floors, fireplaces, ceiling mouldings, and a table and chairs on the balcony. The windows are double glazed and there is a smoke and a carbon-monoxide alarm fitted. Bed linen, towels, a hairdryer and umbrellas are provided.

Wifi access is good and there is cable TV in the living room.

Rent includes all building charges, internet and bills. There is a helpful gardienne who lives in a near-by building, but it would be lovely if occasionally you could water the plants and forward any post.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch before deciding if there are any questions I haven't thought of and answered here!

About Me
After initially training as an historian at UCL I became a foreign correspondent working in Europe and Latin America for many years for Reuters and the New York Times, and am now writing fiction. I've travelled extensively and have been both an AirBnb host and guest, so am sensitive to what it's like on both sides of the equation. I am researching a new book and need to be near the libraries in central London.
