You will gaze up at the Eiffel Tower every morning when exiting this gorgeous building, from this truly Parisian apartment that features a very quiet and relaxing stay for those who seek peace of mind and tranquility! It features extra high ceilings, very handsome and tasteful decorations, plus separate kitchen, bathroom and even a large walk-in closet. It is located on the ground floor, but not on the street side, rather, on a quiet courtyard. You will be just a few minute walk to reach the base of the Eiffel Tower, as it looms high above you, beckoning you to... be whisked up one of its 4 elevators, or for those more adventurous types- you can climb up to its second story and they won’t even charge you to do this!
This is a very prestigious and luxury neighborhood, home to several embassies and consulates, yet almost a private street, with little traffic. Your neighborhood is rich in stores, shops, with a great bakery and butcher just around the corner. There are several cafes and restaurants within a few minutes stroll; less than 10 minutes. Just a minute walk from your building lies the expanse of the Champs de Mars, a beautiful large park and gardens that sits between the Ecole Militaire and the Tower. It offers much more than pretty flowers to look at; get into step with the many joggers there every day, including the military men running in unison some early mornings, or use the basketball courts, or let the kids loose in the playgrounds. There are even frequent puppet shows for the toddlers, plus they can try their hand at racing peddle-push miniature cars around a short makeshift track if they like, or even pony rides!
Of course, you can find several snack bars, a merry-go-round and even an idyllic rusticated little Café. Take time to sit on a bench and watch the parade of locals walking their dogs, sometimes using them as a catalyst to meet new friends with pets as well. The summertime brings out a sea of people, just relaxing and picnicking on the grass in front of the Tower, with "Ohh’s and Ahh’s" escaping every time the Tower’s light show goes off on the hour .....another freebie!
You are sure to admire the building, every time you go in. It is a posh, elegant, turn of the 20 th century hand-carved stone façade apartment building with beautiful iron and glass entry doors, carpeted and marble floors and an antique wood and iron elevator. Luckily though, you will not need to use this, as you will be on the same ground floor as the street, towards the back of the building. There is excellent security in the entry of the building, for this secluded neighborhood. Your apartment is extra large at 54 m 2 (@580 ft 2 ) and has one bedroom with a double size bed for two adults. In the living room is a comfortable double pullout couch. Also there is a fold away twin size single bed cot which is kept in the closet for a young adult; this unit is about 6.5 feet long a 3 feet wide.
You will instantly notice how very quiet and serene the apartment is, as it faces on the back courtyard. After a busy day of sightseeing and shopping, you will be glad to return to this apartment where you can assured a peaceful stay and sleep. You will also note the extra high ceiling with ornate and gorgeous hand carved moldings, on it and above the doorways, plus the rich decoration. Thailand made silk curtains, carpeting throughout and well made furniture.
The bathroom has a new large walk in shower (Nov 2013), a double pedestal sink, and a washer/dryer combo. The WC is completely separate, and can be accessed through either the bedroom or the living room. The galley style kitchen was painted a bright and cheerful yellow (2010) and is separate from the rest of the apartment. It has new cupboards and a new floor (2012). Please see below for the complete list of amenities.
You are close to several metros for transport; the Motte Picquet station has lines 8, 10, and 6 and is only a 5 minute walk. Or, you can access the RER line C at the foot of the Tower to go Versailles, Disneyland, St. Michel and St. Germain area of Paris.
February 2010 upgrades include new paint plus a comfortable new double size sofa bed in living room. In March of 2011, all new carpeting has been installed throughout, plus new chairs, new double size very high quality “Swiss System” bed. In 2012 the cabinets and flooring in the kitchen were redone along with a new stove/oven. In 2013, a new large walk-in shower was installed. With all of these updates and more to come, this apartment is sure to please!!
The outside courtyard and window ledges are maintained by the building itself and can sometimes appear a bit dark, but this should not detract from your enjoyment of the property. No one is allowed access to the courtyard.
Come and experience this elegant neighborhood and be assured a quiet and relaxing stay. Enjoy this grand Parisian home with so many attractions just outside your door on the expanse of greenery that is the Champs de Mars! And be sure to go the top, almost 1000 feet, of the Eiffel Tower, any way you like!Read more

This apartment is a 1 minute walk to the park in front of the Eiffel Tower. It takes 6 or 7 minutes to walk to the actual tower. There was a bakery and a market just around the corner on the same block. The metro in either any direction was a 5 minute walk. The park is complete with a playground, tennis courts and running paths. It was a perfect place to stay with kids. Clean and safe

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this apartment so it felt like home as soon as we opened the door. It is a beautiful building, lovely little apartment and great position close to everything. We are about to rebook it again for next year

This is the second time we have used Vacations in Paris,both times the organisation and service has been very good. We really appreciated the guest book that was in the apartment with all the advice from people that had stayed previously - great information on the restuarants,cafes and boulangeries in the local neighbourhood. The apartment was very comfortable for the two of us and the location fantastic with the Eiffel tower basically outside the front door and a short stroll to Rue Cler and the metro

This was the 4th apartment we have stayed in through your company and was by far the best. The one last year in Rue Simon Le Franc was disappointing and we could not recommend it but this one has truly made up for it.
It was in the most perfect position, seeing the Eiffel tower everytime we left the building was wonderful. The building itself was delightfully french inside and out. Very comfortable and well equipped throughout.We cant wait to stay there again next May.

Very convenient to transportation, resturants and the sites of Paris. Apartment was very quiet in a residential neighborhood. The apartment had sufficient room for the two of us with a kitchen that we didn't use except for breakfast. We had great weather but the apartment wasn't air conditioned so could be uncomfortable if it was hot.

This small apartment is very cozy and the Eiffel Tower can be seen from the building's front door. The neighborhood is very charming with everything one could need - groceries, laundromat, restaurants, shops.
Don't plan on doing much cooking because the cooking unit is a 2 burner on top of the microwave. Meals can be made but plan on cooking simply. With the weekly market 5 minutes away and a very ample grocery store 2 blocks away, you can stock the apartment with the necessaries: fruit, wine, cheese, bread, pastries, coffee, etc.
There is a washer but no dryer and the laundromat was a better option.
The apartment is showing its age and has the smallest toilet area I've ever seen but we adapted quite well because the location was terrific; to be able to come and go without interruption and have a comfortable bed to return to was a plus over a hotel room.
Metro stops are close by in two directions that connect with all parts of Paris. This is very convenient considering that the apartment is on the extreme west side of the city. We had no problems getting around by train or on foot.
Our trip was magical and we will return.
Our family (of three) was very comfortable in this large, quiet and well-maintained first floor apartment. The location served us well - as we were able to walk to the Metro, RER stations and to many of the sights in this wonderful city. The apartment was well equipped - our daughter used the roll away bed, which she said was very comfortable. The apartment is located on a very quiet street, so there was minimum noise. We enjoyed walking out our door to see the top of the Eiffel Tower! There is a wonderful bakery around the corner - so breakfasts were easy!
I would highly recommend this apartment for two or three people.

This was a great experience with a few caveats. The view of the Tour
Eiffel is wonderful but only outside. The place is slightly
claustrophobic as the windows only face a crowded courtyard. The
rooms are very large and comfortable and having the space makes a
big difference compared to smaller flats. The kitchen though small
was well equipped. We loved the instant check-in and quick return of
our deposit and booking was a cinch and friendly. The furniture is old
and somewhat falling apart and needs to be repaired and the bedroom
needs a shade to block the light from the courtyard which can be
noisy very early in the morning. I would still do it again but would like
to have a view from a balcony or some such.

This apartment is perfect. It gives you a taste of a real Parisian apartment not a tourist apartment. This is due to the furnishings and the location. Even though it is very near the Eiffel Tower it is a family neighborhood not just a place for tourists. There are parks nearby and one of the best outdoor markets is located a couple of blocks away on Blvd. de Grenelle. It is on Wednesday and Sunday, with Sunday being the day not to miss. Head into the 15th Arrondissment, which this area of the 7th borders, to mix with the locals and find well priced restaurants. I speak with geniune knowledge of this area. In the 80's I lived in this neighborhood for three years. I try to come back to Paris at least once a year since moving back to the States and this is my favorite neighborhood.
