About our home

The Home: The apartment is located on the 6th floor of a building dating from 1864 at the corner of Place called "Franz Liszt". The size of the apartment is large by French standards: 125m2 (1300 square feet). It occupies the entire top floor, and is directly connected to the ground floor by a secure elevator. The wood beams in the living room create the feeling of a house far away from the city. The entire penthouse has been renovated and includes all the amenities of a modern flat, including air conditioning in the living areas (sitting room, living room and kitchen). A lot of attention has been given to the interior decor, with fine pieces of art, tapestries, paintings, engravings, sculptures... on the walls and on the shelves. There are five main rooms: a library/sitting room, a large living room, a fully equiped kitchen, a large bathroom, a master bedroom suite with its own bathroom and kitchen corner and a second bedroom on the south side. The two bedrooms have queen size beds (160x200 cm, 63x79 in.). There is a weekly maid service for half a day. Everything is new, well maintained and clean. Exploring Paris can sometimes be tiring because of the walking visitors do between points of interest. By the end of the day you are going to greatly appreciate the comfort of this haven of calm, under the rooftops, in the center of Paris.

Where is it?


The neighborhood: Paris is divided into 20 neighborhoods called "arrondissements". each "arrondissement" has its own character and personality. The western half of Paris is more "bourgeois" and affluent, the eastern part more popular, mixed and affordable. Place Franz Liszt, so called because the musician and composer lived in this neighbourhood during his stay in Paris (1830-35), is located in the middle, between the two sections. It is a diverse residential area with residences and small businesses. It was completed in 1822, a half-century before the majors changes brought about by the famous Prefet Haussman who envisionned Paris as it is today. The area is near the big department stores (Printemps, Galeries Lafayettes...), which are three subway stops away and the Opera House, which is four subway stops away. The closest subway station is only five minutes from the apartment on foot. The Butte Montmartre which can be seen from the balcony, is a scenic 20 minutes walk away. The area has many shops; including the covered market Saint Quentin, which is the largest of its kind in Paris. Here one can find a wide variety of fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables at reasonable prices. Two major train stations are 15 minutes away on foot. From the Gare du Nord, the express train Eurostar transports you to London in just 2 hours and 15 minutes. You can also spend a day in Brussels, which is only 1 hour and 20 minutes on the express train first class Thalys.
