Central Chic Paris Apartment with Stunning View (7th arrondissement)

My apartment overlooks the Prime Minister's gardens on the left bank of Paris. It is in the center of the city, yet has the feel of a monastery in the countryside. Chic location: can walk to St. Germain, St. Sulpice, Montparnasse, Champs Elysees.

Bedroom and separate kitchen, both with full-length windows on garden and sun. Wake up to the sun rising over the chestnut trees and the sound of birds. Elegant, clean, quiet, feng-shui simplicity. Upscale furnishings; Molteni arm-chair, French antique mirrors, design desk. Newly remodelled kitchen and cabinets. Fine bed linens. Concierge building; elegant neighborhood. Excellent wifi, printer. Extremely safe: street guarded by Prime Minister's corps, night and day.

Listed in the book QUIET PARIS as one the best tranquil spots to stay in the city, the apartment is ideal for a scholar or writer.

See video on youtube: "My Paris apartment on a sunny day".

Disadvantages: fourth-floor walk-up (no elevator), small bathroom.
No smoking or pets. No children (because of the windows). Single or double occupancy only.

Metros: Sevres Babylone, Vaneau, Francois Xavier.

Personal reference: I am an American film professor at the University of Paris 8, and a film journalist (Huffington Post blog). I have taught as a visiting professor at NYU and Hunter College, and have lectured at the University of Rome, the University of Chicago and UNAM in Mexico City. This is my personal apartment which I rent while away on research. I leave most shelves and cabinets empty for you, like the clean space of a hotel. Linens, kitchenware, iron, blow-dryer and deluxe pillows (from flat to fluffy) provided.

--1090 euros rent, including utilities
--200 euros one time cost: to cover concierge fee to handle key retrieval/deposit; set-up and cleaning of apartment and linens.
