Housed inside an authentic 18th-century townhouse down a quiet side street, once the home of d’Artagnan the leader of the Musketeers, this totally renovated 140m2 (1500ft2) three-story apartment adds an entirely modern flavor to your stay in Paris. The fully appointed modern kitchen has a direct view onto Parisian street life, and the custom-made table in the dining room is a veritable piece of art.
The living room is spacious with high ceilings and large windows and can easily accommodate up to eight guests. The two bedrooms have ample closet space and comfortable beds, and each is flanked with ensuite bathrooms with modern conveniences such as heated towel racks and rainforest showerheads.
An art enthusiast of Oceanic and African art, the owner has furnished the apartment with striking paintings and sculptures as well as a substantial art library. The flat also boasts high-speed wireless internet, flat screen televisions with a large range of international channels, and unlimited international dialing for North America and for landlines in Europe on the phone plan. Air-conditioning throughout the apartment keeps you cool during Paris’s sweltering summer.
Like most buildings in Paris, there is a keypad outside the front door of the building for added security. Once inside the building, there are also two entrances to the apartment, one on street level with access to the kitchen and one on the floor above with access to the living room and the master bedroom. The apartment shares the building with a traditional French restaurant (“Le Bon Saint Pourcain”) on the ground floor which offers delicious local specialties and has been listed in plentiful tourist guides of the city.
If you choose to stay in the comfort of home, the chef has kindly offered the choice to serve you directly in the apartment and cater your meal personally-a great opportunity to try out your French! Otherwise, the cleaning lady is a very good cook of Moroccan delicacies. You will be free to enjoy Paris at your heart’s content, as the cleaning lady will take care to tidy up the apartment in your absence, in order to make your stay even more comfortable than in any hotel.
