Rue de Levis' market, a very vivid and picturesque local market of the neighborhood and Parc Monceau are only few blocks away. Not to be missed.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION is fully accessible from the apartment, with 3 Metro stations (Rome, Liege and Europe) and several Bus Stops. A “Velib” station (inexpensive service of bicycles) is just around the corner.- Gare St. Lazare, one of Paris' most important train stations, is only few blocks away, providing trains and connections to major destinations as well as many other services, including Car Rentals.
PUBLIC PARKING “Du Pont de l'Europe” is only few steps away from the apartment, offering 24/7 parking service.
OTHER SERVICES: restaurants, art galleries, hair stylists, laundry services, small markets, florists, bakery, pharmacy, high-end rug's boutiques and even violin makers (“Luthiers”) are spread all over throughout the very same street where the apartment is located, giving the “rue” all the unique flavor and Parisian charm that the street and neighborhood have.
WHAT IS THERE TO DO NEARBY? Buying cheese, fruits or French food “to take” in the nearby vivid market of “rue de Levis” or right across the street; having coffee or eating in one of the many cafes, bistros and restaurants spread all over the neighborhood; visiting the beautiful Parc Monceau or just walking around to admire the gorgeous buildings, avenues and streets surrounding the area, will certainly be among your favorites things to do. Big department stores (Galeries Lafayette and Printemps) are also nearby.
INSTEAD of having a minuscule hotel room, where space lacks and you're charged for every call or internet usage, and have to eat out for every meal, do not miss this opportunity to savor life like a true Parisian, feeling right at home in this apartment... Bienvenue!...Read more

Our family of four (parents and two sons, 18 & 20) stayed here for our first trip to Europe - first stop: Paris. It was a perfect home base for exploring this beautiful city.
Located in a residential and merchant/market area it was a very safe walk to the nearby (minutes) Metro station or to the sights. About 15 minutes walk to the Opera house and 30 minutes walk to big ticket items like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, etc.
Nice neighborhood for shopping (Monoprix grocery store a 10 minute walk) and lots of cafes all a buzz at any hour of the day.
The apartment was clean, modern, had remodeled bathrooms and all the conveniences you would need for a stay.
It was about 30 minutes from the airport. At the end of our stay, taking the Metro to the Gare du Nord (train station) for the Eurostar was easy - even if you don't speak French (and we don't).
The booking and payment process was pleasant and efficient working directly with the owner - who was helpful and easy to communicate with. The cost for our stay - while the most expensive city on our tour - was very reasonable for Paris. I shopped around a lot to know. I also overheard travelers discussing their small hotel room on the Eurostar and was grateful for our two bedrooms, two full baths, and kitchen.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to a couple or small family for their vacation - and would not hesitate to stay here again ourselves.
You are welcome to contact me for my recommendations (as a newly minted EU traveler from the states!) on this apartment, Paris, London, Amsterdam or Brussels. I'm happy to assist if I can.
Renting an apartment from Homeaway, Vrbo, Flipkey or similar is always a bit of a leap of faith - I'm happy to report this one had a very happy landing!

Es un apartamento tan bien situado, que está en un lugar muy apacible, sin ruido, con pequeños comerciantes y artesanos parisinos, y al mismo tiempo, a escasos metros de zonas muy activas, con muchos restaurantes, mercaditos callejeros -Rue de Lévis-, y hasta la Gare Saint Lazare. Tengo que hacer una mención especial, y es que está a escasos minutos caminando, está maravilloso Parc de Monceau http://pinterest.com/pin/222435669066226501/ http://pinterest.com/pin/222435669066226512/
Lo disfruté enormemente y apenas pueda regresaré.
