The foyer leads directly into a living room with large windows, an antique armoire and bookcase (with plenty of guide books about Paris) as well as a traditional, French gold mirror over the fireplace. We've also added some modern touches such as a very comfortable sofa that converts to a bed for two and a television with a DVD player. We've even stocked an eclectic collection of movies. The wide plank, herringbone parquet floors date the apartment to sometime before 1875 and some of the antique furniture is from the same era. Original ceiling moulding adorns the main rooms of the flat. The entry foyer of the apartment has a large storage area for extra linens, towels, coats, suitcases and more. It's a great spot to drop your bags after a day shopping around the street market. There is also desk with a permanent, broadband linked computer. One of the rare features of this Paris furnished apartment is the large dining room. Bright and sunny, the dining room has a lovely antique table making it just right for enjoying a meal at home or some coffee and a fresh croissant in the morning. We have opened the wall between dining room and the kitchen making the area even more luminous. The very well equipped kitchen has all of the conveniences you would need to prepare anything from light snacks to sumptuous meals (made with a fresh selection of ingredients from the rue de Levis market). The bedroom is accessible either by walking through the living room or by going through the kitchen area to the bathroom. This provides the utmost in privacy should there be someone sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room. Our cosy bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed, ready to fall into at the end of a busy day. It is also a lovely room to wake up in as it has a window directly across from the bed. For your convenience, we have a classic armoire to store your belongings in, reading lights on either side of the bed and an alarm clock. The bright combined toilet and bathroom have all the modern amenities needed. The over sized shower head provides wonderful morning and if you look closely you will notice that the white rectangular tiles look very familiar...(think of the Paris metro stations if you have been here before). We do not recommending driving in Paris but, if you do, there is a public garage at the end of the street.
