Paris, Île-de-France, France
On the left bank in the area of Ecole Militaire, UNESCO and Invalides It is at the edge of the 7th and 15th Arr very close to Place de Breteuil---it is 2 minutes from metro Segur. We really like the area which is very "parisian" , convenient to much of Paris but not "touristy ". Friends who have lived in the apartment say that, like us, they are delighted with the area. The apartment is on the US 2nd floor ( french 1st floor ) of a grand Art Noveau building ( 1910 ) with an elevator and a concierge. It is about 1000 sq feet in size with a living room, dining room, bedroom and study. It has a modern ( US type) kitchen and bathroom but the other rooms have their original 1910 flavour and elegance-- eg 4 marble fireplaces and intricate plaster moldings , long windows and wood floors. Much of the furniture is antique (except the new beds !). The main bedroom has a pair of twin beds which we put side by side for a queen size bed, or could be moved apart. The study has a couch that converts to a bed, a large desk and the television. It also has a mac laptop and internet connection. The living and dining rooms face an attractive, small street with a nice view of the opposite apartment building ( like ours ) and the other rooms face a small courtyard. The apartment is fully equiped with all the usual things plus dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. It also has a CD-stereo .The modern kitchen has a small eating area and a good size fridge, radiant heat cook top and an eye level oven. The modern bathroom has a double sink, a bathtub with a shower. There is also a second room with a good size sink. There are many little shops for food near by and a wonderful street market on Avenue de Saxe ( 3 minutes walk away ) on Thursday and Saturday mornings. There are also a number of really good small restaurants very close by ( including on the corner of the street ) We love the location----and all our guests say this too. it is perfectly Parisian, close to the most elegant parts of Paris, a delight to walk around , quiet but minutes from the metro and bus to take you to the busy areas. We are an academic couple and we live in the apartment ourselves in the summers. We are delighted to have similar couples enjoy our beautiful apartment when we ourselves are in Los Angeles.
