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, absolute silence. Newly remodelled kitchen cabinets. Molteni arm-chair, French antique mirrors, antique and modern lamps. High end firm Treca mattress; luxury bed linens and feather duvet. Concierge building; elegant neighborhood. Wifi, printer. Extremely safe: street guarded by Prime Minister's corps, night and day.

It is a good place to be if there is "quarantine" as feels breezy, open, and in nature--and the street is very safe.

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.

Kitchen has been remodelled since this video. Apartment repainted and new heating system installed this week.

Disadvantages: fourth-floor walk-up (no elevator), small bathroom.
