À propos de ce logement
The Buzz of Luxury
It’s not as much about the buzz as it is about the thrill you feel when you walk out onto this wonderful old Parisian street of Cherche-Midi. This is the road that the king used to take to go hunting south of Paris…some say the name comes from the rue de la ‘Chasse’ (French for hunt); but no one knows for sure just how the name came about. Suffice to say that you get the distinct feel of another era as you walk down the street to get your freshly baked Poilâne bread just a few buildings down from the flat. The sumptuous buildings lining the street serve to remind you of a long lost way of living when those of means could afford to have their own private buildings (known as Hôtels Particuliers) as their personal residence. Today, even though these buildings have been divided up into apartments, they still retain the elegance of olden times with high ceilings, carved limestone facades, cobblestoned inner courtyards, and backyard gardens.
This 1 bedroom apartment in a spacious retreat and it is an ideal nest for a couple. The owner of this flat is an interior designer; hence, the wonderful assortment of decorative elements and Objets d’Art found throughout the flat, contributing to a unique atmosphere with a timeless feel; yet the fully equipped kitchen bespeaks of modern times. No hotel room can compare with such a dwelling for the same price…particularly when you take into account that you are in the best part of historic Paris, or at least in the part where the real estate prices are the highest, which usually means the most desirable part of the city. Others may prefer the Right Bank and the Marais district; for many, this part of the Left Bank is the place to see and be seen. No matter what your preference, however, you cannot go wrong here if you want to feel free to walk, in a few leisurely minutes, from your flat down to the Seine, or meander over to the Orsay Museum, or stroll up to Notre Dame Cathedral. Whatever you want to do, most of historic Paris is within pedestrian reach.
As a pedestrian in Paris, the ideal is to be able to go home mid-afternoon, after a few hours of wandering, to get some rest; only to return to the streets a bit later on without missing a beat. In this location, there is no need to waste valuable time in transit from your lodging to the thick of the action, for this apartment is in a calm haven on a quiet street that is nevertheless in the very heart of Paris. If you enjoy this type of eclectic, luxurious décor, then this flat may be just the one for you!

All of our apartments are NON-SMOKING and we do NOT ALLOW PETS.
All of the properties managed by AT HOME ABROAD are privately owned flats. All of our owners use their flats to varying degrees and when they are not using their flats, AT HOME ABROAD is free to rent them out. As private residences in private residential complexes, these apartments require respectful behaviour from our tenants. Whereas we wish for you to have a wonderful time while living as a Parisian, we at I LOVE PARIS APARTMENTS are keen on making all of our tenants fully aware of their obligations with respect to their surrounding neighbors while they are in residence. We ask for your understanding when we say that we cannot permit disturbances that will provoke the ire of the full time residents in our buildings. Quiet entries and exits from our buildings are essential to maintaining good relations.
Maintenance: Please report any maintenance or housekeeping problems immediately. Even the best appliances occasionally malfunction and we cannot guarantee them to perform 100% of the time. We do, however, promise to correct any problem as soon as possible. There will be no refunds due to maintenance problems.
Important Notice regarding telephone, internet and television amenities: Most all of the distinctive apartments and rental properties we offer come with television, telephone and internet access services. The owners of these properties provide these amenities, but there is no one standard that applies to all properties. We do our best to assure that these services are operating at time of your arrival. Should you encounter a service problem, please call our staff, and we will attempt to solve the problem during your stay.
Please understand that we are not able to warrant against service interruptions, which are rare but are beyond our control, since service providers may perform maintenance work or systems may suffer life cycle service interruptions, a fact of life even in a city as modern as Paris. Please note that no refunds or account adjustments will be made for such interruptions.
Noise, Construction, Unavailability, Repairs, Substitutions, and Related Refund Policies: If you are renting a vacation apartment in Paris, or a vacation home in France, please understand that Paris is a busy city, and France a busy country, with lots of growth, visitors, construction and changes. That means there may be noise from the streets, and construction in the neighborhoods and buildings, and inconvenience to you. Since this is beyond our control, no refunds will be made. We strongly urge that you buy travel insurance at the time your booking is confirmed. Most Paris apartments are in large building blocks and complexes. There will be general construction from time to time in these blocks, and there may even be construction within the building where your vacation property is located. We are a management company, and do not typically receive any advance notice of such construction or unavailabilty. When we do, we block the apartment from our Available Dates Calendar. When you arrive at your property, if there is construction, noise, inconvenience, or your property is otherwise unavailable for any reason beyond our control, please notify us immediately. As soon as we are so notified, and assuming we have any comparable properties that are not being used during your planned stay, we will endeavour to make one available to you, as a substitute, at no extra charge. However, there will be no reimbursement for such inconvenience or unavailability, and we are not liable for any discounts, costs of other substitute accomodations that are not from our portfolio, or other direct or indirect costs which you may incur as a result of such noise, construction, inconvenience or general unavailability. This policy also applies to acts of God, war, flood and other climatic events, fire, strikes or work stoppages, public events or other circumstances that may impair the access to or use of your vacation property. Again, since these reasons are beyond our control, we strongly urge that you purchase travel insurance to guard you against such possible inconvenience.
Should you have a problem arise within your vacation property during your stay, such as a power, plumbing, heating, or other mechanical or structural problem or construction within the property that may impact or impair the use and enjoyment of your vacation property, our refund policy is different than as stated above. Please notify us immediately of the problem, and we will oversee the prompt repair of the problem within the property, usually within 24-48 hours of receipt of your notice. If in our assesment we will be unable to make a prompt repair, then we will endeavour to make a comparable property from our portfolio available to you at no extra charge. If there is no such property available as a substitute, you may check out of the property and request a refund for the unused portion of your stay, less the applicable cleaning fee. Such refund will be processed from the payments we have already received from you, and will be credited to you within 20 days of your departure. No other payment or liability will be applied.
Should you have any particular needs, strong preferences, physical limitations, or other factors that may make it unsuitable for you to be relocated to another comparable property in our portfolio, or limit your access or use of another one of our offered substitute properties, please make such conditions and limitations known to our team at the time of your reservation booking. An example would be the need for elevator service, which is not always available in every property in our portfolio. Please make our team aware of your particular needs when you book, and do not wait until you have arrived. It is our policy to relocate you to a comparable vacation property that may be available within our portfolio, at no extra charge. Should a substitute property not be available or acceptable to you, then travel insurance is what we urge you to purchase, in advance, to guard against any such inconvenience, because refunds are not available, except as strictly limited as set forth above for problems within the property.
Restrictions: All apartments are limited in the number of guests they can accomodate. Some also have age restrictions for children. These restrictions are there to protect both the interests of the apartment owner and the serenity of the adjoining neighbors. Accomodating overnight guests in excess of the agreed number in your party is prohibited and will result in immediate cancellation of the rental with no refund.
Limitation of Liability: Our liability is limited to the amount of any rentals and deposits paid. In no event shall we be liable for consequential damages.
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 7 jours avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement à hauteur de 50 % et les frais de service vous sont remboursés intégralement.
