Paris, Île-de-France, France
Spacious, sunny Belle Époque apartment with all modern conveniences, this apartment is located the juncture of the river Seine and the Canal St Martin, looking out on the Port de Plaisance (Paris marina). With one street leading to the night life of the Bastille, the charm of the Place des Vosges and the hip atmosphere of the Marais, the other to the elegant Ile Saint Louis and Notre Dame Cathedral, you will have Paris at your feet ... and an extremely comfortable place in which to put those feet up at the end of the day. We've renovated this 1000 sq. ft. apartment to provide all modern comforts, while keeping the 19th-century charm of the mouldings, wainscoting, and original parquet floors. Our tenant/guests keep coming back because they appreciate the apartment's spaciousness and light, and the feeling of being "chez soi". The kitchen is a "good cook's kitchen," with every implement you might want (including a cocotte [pressure cooker], a friteuse [deep fryer] a Doufeu [Le Creuset 'dutch oven'], and a mandoline, as well as a food processor and hand-held blender). In addition to the new stove and dishwasher, the apartment boasts the largest clothes washer and (separate) clothes dryer available for sale in France. Sleeping spaces: The apartment has two bedrooms that look out on a very quiet, private garden belonging to the building. The "chambre bleue" has a 160-cm wide bed, and the "chambre verte," a 140-cm wide bed. This means that the apartment is suitable long-term for three adults maximum, or for a couple with one child (or possibly two very young children). Slightly larger groupings have rented in the apartment for stays of a week, making use of the sofabed in the salon. [The 2nd photo shows the sunset visible from the front windows, looking out over the marina (Port de Plaisance) and the lock (Pont Morland) that connects the Seine to the Canal St Martin.] NEWS FLASH: The 'mystery woman' for whom Leonardo diCaprio was searching in the OPPO "Find Me" ads was spotted in this apartment! (That is, the commercial was partially filmed here. See: http://tinyurl.com/3dnpdwk or Google "Oppo Find Me". But don't worry: there's no above-ground Métro opposite the apartment -- that's just a Hollywood illusion!)
