Rue de Varenne - Private Apartment
Rue de Varenne
(One Bedroom Apartment - 1200 Square Feet)
Beautiful apartment in a building dating from 1830 with high ceilings and old parquet floors on one of the loveliest streets in Paris in the chic 7th arrondissement. The Rue de Varenne, which runs east from the metro station, is closely associated with the French Government, since the President of the Council (equivalent to Prime Minister under the Third & Fourth Republics) settled in the nearby Hotel Matignon in January 1935. Other ministries were also located in the private mansions of the district. The apartment is in a short walking distance to the Rodin Museum, Les Invalides, the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay and the famous cafes along the Boulevard Saint Germain.
The neighborhood is filled with shops. On the street is a bakery and a wonderful butcher shop. Aournd the corner there is a huge and most wonderful supermarket in Paris called La Grande Epicerie, and in the other direction is another chic supermarket called Monoprix. The best cheese shop in Paris is a few blocks away, as well as one of the best fish shops, two great chocolate shops, caterers and at least four wine shops. The street is home to the Prime Minister of France, so the area is highly protected with police rounds every ten minutes. On the other side is the Italian Embassy, which is also highly protected.
Bedroom with a king size bed which can be divided, if needed, into two single beds. Master bath with a tub. This bathroom was remodeled using 17th century stone flooring, 18th century stone sinks and beautiful old 10 foot high mirrors. There is another bathroom with a shower. The living room is furnished with Swedish and French 18th century furniture. The library/ dining room is also furnished with antiques and a beautiful painting of lions from the famous 19th century animal painter, Lancon. The kitchen is totally equipped with a dishwasher and convection burners and oven, washer and dryer, and fully equipped with all the necessary dishes and silver and pots and pans you could need. Sheets and towels can be changed once a week and the apartment cleaned at the same time. There is a hair dryer in the apartment.
Wi Fi is available throughout the apartment with high speed Internet, and there is a new flat screen television with CNN and BBC and hundreds of television stations. Telephone service is included with free phone calls to any number, fixed and portable, in the United States and free phone calls to all fixed phones in most European countries.
Great for longer corporate stays and sabbaticals too.
