The apartment is located on the third floor of the building, and has a main living/kitchen area in the back, and a good size bedroom in the front. It gets nice sunlight from both sides, and has plenty of windows to create breezes in the summer Parisian heat. The framed photography on the walls is by one of the owners, Adam Richardson.

Living Room

The living room, like the rest of the apartment, is newly furnished. It is a place to eat your morning croissant and café or to host a home-cooked meal with your friends. The sofa folds out to a bed for additional sleeping room (2 people). There is a bookshelf, a dining table and chairs, and some nice wooden storage boxes in front of the convertible couch (with extra blankets). The living room and dining area looks out through two French windows to the quiet and serene courtyard.


The kitchen is fully equipped with just about everything you will need: pots, pans, utensils, cutlery, silverware, cleaning items and so. As is common in European homes, the washing machine is in the kitchen. There is an electric two-burner cooktop, and a recently purchase combination microwave/convection oven/broiler.


The bedroom is a quiet and peaceful space with a bed and a sitting chair. There are two closets in the bedroom for storing all of your clothes and gifts you purchase on your trip.

This is the view out of the bedroom window onto the rue Paulin Méry. A quiet, pedestrian only street means you will get a restful nights’ sleep and awake refreshed each morning, ready to go out into Paris for a new adventure!


The bathroom is small by American standards but quite large by French standards. There is a shower that is large enough to do a pirouette in, a toilet, and a sink with a cabinet above and storage area underneath. Hot water is supplied by a new tankless heater.

Accessibility note: Sorry, like most Parisian apartment buildings there is no elevator, only stairs up to the third floor. We would not consider it handicapped accessible unless you are quite persistent!
