1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Paris, Ile-de-France
Here in the First Arrondissement - the historic and geographic heart of Paris, we have just renovated two lovely apartments! The building used to be home to a Duke who held a weekly salon always attended by Benjamin Franklin, when he was ambassador to France. We have taken the ground floor space - facing the street and courtyard - and made a charming one bedroom apartment with a mezzanine, and an attached studio apartment. They can be rented separately or together.

This, the one-bedroom apartment, has a lovely living room with a fully equipped open kitchen and a crawl-space mezzanine that could sleep two. There is a separate bedroom that sleeps two in a comfortable, old-fashioned tapestry bed. The bathroom has a low ceiling and exposed stone wall. There is a claw-footed tub and a separate shower. The kitchen has four top burners, an...

We stayed at this very charming little apartment in April. There were 4 of us so maybe a little crowded but way better than a hotel room. It’s very close to Louvre and Opera and you can walk to most of the major attractions from...More

This building is 300 years old. It has retained all of the lovely characteristics of an old structure (stone walls, exposed beams, cobblestone courtyard, and tall windows) while having somehow been fitted with electricity, running water, and wifi. If you want the “feel” of old...More

Good location near major attractions. Apartment was cluttered and some equipment failed. No ventilation and some noise from other residents. General character below what was expected but adequate for a short stay in this price range.More

Hello, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Paris, but sorry that our apartment did not completely live up to your expectations! True – it was right between seasons, and I had left extra fans, heaters and dehumidifiers - thankfully, I had taken out...More

How to get there
Arriving from Charles de Gaulle airport :

If you're loaded down, I assume you'll take a taxi - they have instituted a flat rate recently, CdG to the right bank (that's where we are) is 50 euros, 35 euros flat fee from Orly to the right bank. If they do the trip with the meter running it is usually more than that, some of the people coming to my apartments say their taxi's still went by the meter, so I'm not sure how much the rule is being obeyed. However, do go to the taxi line – people trying to get you to go with them before the line will definitely charge more than the correct amount! If you use Uber, while it is officially “discouraged” (ok, illegal) here, you will find Uber cars available.

Other than taxi, you have two good choices :
