About this listing
This charming flat is located in one of Paris's oldest, most typical and charming pedestrian streets of "le vieux Paris". La Rue Montorgeuil represents the cradle of french civilization and is spot on it the heart of Paris. La Rue Montorgeuil is a lively pedestrian market street, famous for its many restaurants, bars, cafes, designer shops. It is a picturesque 700 meter street. It takes about 10 minutes to stroll down, and the repetition of stores reveals something about the French priorities: 9 cafes, 6 boulangeries (bakeries) , 4 butchers, 4 wine shops, 3 fromageries (cheese shops), 2 chocolatiers, 2 poissoneries (fish shops) ,3 vegetable sellers, 2 tobaccos, 2 florists and 3 pharmacies.... It is a unique area because it is an entirely paved "quartier"which heightens the villagey and authentic feel and the impression that it is separate even though it is an intrinsic part of (website hidden) is the Parisian neighborhood of everyone's dreams, rich in contrasts, character and vivid colors. Today, it has become a rather Hip area of Paris and you will find a wide panel of great restaurants and bars. Walking distance from the Louvre, the Seine, Opera, St Germain....you can walk pretty much anywhere in Paris from here or catch the metro in the 4 stations within 5 minutes walk from the flat.
The "douceur de vivre"(sweetness of life) continues once you walk in to the flat... The building itself is very charming and so very french, thanks to the very hype hairdresser, the entrance is designed with plants, mirrors, and chandeliers (very convenient for you ladies). Once in the flat, a feeling of quietness and serenity takes place. You immediately forget that you are in the center of Paris! The living room and kitchen face the small courtyard and the room is towards the street. It has been arranged into a comfortable, cosy, modern, practical, and serene space. May it be for work (equipped with a printer/scanner), for relaxing nights, for homely cooked dinners with fresh ingredients from the market, ordering in in front of a movie or aperitif with a book...
You get the best of both worlds: peace, calm and quiet inside/ liveliness the minute you step outside.
This place is ideal for 1 person or a couple. Enjoy!
The flat does not accomodate more than 2 people.
Please take your shoes off when in the flat- as the neighbours downstairs have complained- If you put music on later than 9.30 PM- please close the windows...
And dont try to open the windows either in the Room or the kitchen-

Alexandra provided a beautiful apartment for our stay in Paris. Her home is located in an amazing location. Rue Montorgueil is a wonderful little street with great cafes, bistros and shopping. The apartment itself is perfect for a couple. The space was clean, well stocked with modern comforts and provided a great resting spot. We will be back for sure!
Nous avons trouvé facilement le gîte et la clef tel que prévu.
Grand appartement silencieux, bien éclairé et bien aéré.
Bien centré, près de tout,sur une rue Montorgueil bien vivante.
