The apartment is located on the 4th European floor (5th US) of this 19th century building with an elevator and overlooks the gardens and golden domes of the Russian Orthodox Church. But don’t worry, they only ring once at 10am! No cars are permitted on the street so it's very quiet.....a peaceful retreat in one of the busiest areas of Paris.
If the great location were not enough, the apartment owners have completely renovated this large two bedroom flat, using high quality furnishings and furniture throughout. Newly painted, new refrigerator/freezer, living room table and new towels are a new addition for 2014. The apartment has all the charm of a 19th century Parisian apartment with high molded ceilings, hardwood floors, a fireplace (decorative only), wood molding on the walls, iron work on the balcony, bow windows – all this with the comfort and modernity of new appliances.
There is a master bedroom with a queen size bed for two adults. The second bedroom has separate twin beds which can be pushed together to form one large king size bed, which includes a top mattress when formed together. Please specify your preference at the time of booking. There is a quality double sofa sleeper in the living room, that can sleep two adults comfortably as well. A total of 6 adults can occupy this large apartment, with its 66 m2 (about 730 ft2) size.
The apartment has two bathrooms, each is located just off the bedrooms; see the floor plan below. The larger of the two is in the master bedroom and offers a tub and handheld shower, plus sink, but no WC. The smaller bathroom off the second bedroom has a shower, sink and WC. For easy access this bathroom and the WC, it conveniently has a second door which opens to the living room.
The apartment’s kitchen has all newer cabinets, newer appliances and includes a dishwasher, combination oven and microwave in one unit, stove top with electric burners, coffee machine and toaster. There is a combination washer/dryer unit in the apartment as well. There is both a dining table for six people as well as a bar counter. There is another important feature for such a large apartment that accommodates six people, which is the gas furnace for "never out hot water".
The owner kindly requests no children under the age of 10 years.
* The food & wine lovers will walk to the best gourmet shops in Paris (Dalloyau, Taillevant, Hediard) and will spend hours cruising the most quintessentially Parisian market in the nearby rue Poncelet. The rue Poncelet market is particularly inviting as it has a combination of fruit, vegetables and produce stalls lined up alongside some of the best food stores in the city. Even in the windy cold of November these little shops open their fronts to the streets in a symphony of color, sound and aromas. Sample the best assortment of French cheeses at Fromagerie des Gourmets at 7 rue Poncelet or some excellent and typical French baguette at PAUL bread shops. It's a unique experience!
* The classical music addicts will just die to be literally two steps away from the city’s main concert Hall - Salle Pleyel – which reopened after its most radical renovation to date, a $36 million makeover that involved gutting and redesigning its main auditorium. You actually can see the back of the building from the living room and – if you are lucky – on a summer evening may hear pianists practicing. In the summer, why not just walk to the Parc Monceau and attend its annual Chopin Festival?
* The joggers and nature lovers will not believe they are so close to the Parc Monceau; only about 300ft. Known as one of the most attractive parks in Paris, Park Monceau, the brainchild of the Duke of Orleans in the 18th century, has become a favorite resting place for those looking for some peace and quiet away from the busy city. Stroll among its pretty flower gardens and interesting array of statues, relax along its little ponds, grottos and waterfall or jog in its alleys. This is just one of the most romantic places in Paris at you door steps.
* The architecture and history buffs will wake up to the stunning view of the Cathédrale St-Alexandre-Nevsky, probably the most beautiful Russian church in France. The style is Byzantine-moscovite, with bulb like pinnacle domes, a gilded ball and a cross at each apex. Enjoy a sunny lunch on the living room balcony overlooking the church gardens or just admire the view from your bed through the bedroom windows. The bells only ring once at 10am in the morning, so you’ll just enjoy the peaceful view.
* The fashion victims will not resist the luxury fashion shops going down on Faubourg St. Honoré towards the presidential palace (Élysées). From Chanel to Hermes and more, just walk them all!

The apartment was everything one would want...
The service, INCLUDING a complimentary bottle of wine was just as was promised, and well done. The apartment itself was lovely, with a wonderful view of an old church, and very convenient to all sorts of adventures.
The Arc' de Triumph (please check my spelling)was well within walking distance, as were street vendors selling fresh fruit, vegetables, baked goods and seafood. Public transportation was not far and good restaurants were plentiful.
The old adage that the French "hate Americans" was certainly NOT true. ALMOST exclusively, people were responsive and kind to someone who could only say, "Merci', bon jour", etc.
Best? Experiencing Paris
Least? Prices, across the board, in restaurants, seemed high.

I chose this lovely 2 bedroom apartment because we had 6 poeple, (our 2 kids 12 and 17, and another couple) but also wanted a well located place, and with my previous experinece of noisy motorbikes, etc, I could hear from nice hotels we'd stayed at, the quiet, dead-end street, 2 blocks from the Arch de Triomphe where this apartment was located was appealing. Right there at Avenue Fauberg where there were many shops and a wonderful outdoor market around 6 or so pleasant blocks away. Nice restaurants, including Taillevent's 2nd restaurant "L'Angle de Fauberg" (1 star) where we had a wonderful meal, at a fraction of the cost of a 2 or 3 star Michelin place. Some other great seafood places, as well as a nice Brasserie and a nice Bistro on our corner where we could get a coffee and croissant, when we didn't just make it ourselves in the well stocked little modern kitchen. There is a great bakery too, only about a block away, near "L'Angle de Fauberg". Access to the Arche de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees was terrific too.
We had a few questions and my calls were returned promptly by the apartment owner, who was on the East Coast of the US. figuring out the Washer/ dryer, and a few other minor details. She was very pleasant and helpful. there was cable TV, a nice little stereo with some already made up CDs, and a computer with internet access. (one of the things we had to call on to access, as I recall)
Beautiful Parisian building with secure access to the gated courtyard, and again in to the building with the electronic key fob that was mailed to us. (A second set of keys was in the apartment) Nice furnishings and decor as well.
The only drawback was was, we were there in late October/ Early November, and the radiator heat was a bit weak..but we are Pacific Northwesterners, and a little chilly-ness is not too unusual for us. Overall, the apartment was quite comfy though.
The Russian Church is quite a sight, right outside the window!
