Away from the clamour of town, the elegant Commerce quartier quietly goes about its business. Gracious boutiques, delightful bistros and divine chocolatiers enliven the villagey rue du Commerce and, a little way to the south, the cedar-shaded Square Violet slumbers in the sunshine. And, speaking of matters elegant, this home will do very well indeed. Tasteful at every turn, period features are coupled with contemporary touches, white walls with ardent stabs of red, modern sculpture with classic Parisian photography. So take your ease in the beautiful sitting room, or be surprised at how very close you are to the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower.
Your recently married hosts met in Paris. A gregarious pair, they moved from Bordeaux and now can’t picture living anywhere else.
Light in tone and dapper of design, this home oozes elegance. There’s a considered cosiness to the sitting room’s grey sofa, where little pops of red spark from the lampshades and cushions. Settle back and make good use of the modish coffee table, or perch on the window seat and see the street bustling below. With a widescreen TV and some handsome, aged hardbacks to choose from, there’s certainly plenty to please.
The kitchen blushes bright red underfoot, while large windows dish up armloads of daylight. You’ve every ingredient then, for the most mouth-watering of meals – whereupon you can dine at the sitting room’s classy table. Smart and stylish, you’re sure to pass a sophisticated night in the bedroom, with its spangling mirror and classic Parisian photography. But before you surrender to our soft linen, go indulge in the smartly modern bathroom.
Over one hundred boutiques beg to be browsed on the rue du Commerce, where you’ll also chance upon cafés and patisseries aplenty. There you might care to stock up on picnic supplies, since the gorgeous Square Violet waits round the corner – and the Champ du Mars only a little further. Glide up the Eiffel Tower, stroll beside the Seine or make tracks for the centre. The métro from Charles Michels to Châtelet takes a little over twenty minutes.
Additional amenities include: concierge, concierge service, 24 hour on call maintenance, communications/internet, hob (induction), entertainment.TripAdvisor property ID 2770212...Read more
