Perks for the Parents

This family apartment in a Hausmannian building, steps from the Eiffel Tower, includes modern art and design, plenty for the kids and a well equipped kitchen for family meals. It’s a beautiful residence for a family, with a great mixture of contemporary and classic styles. What really sets it apart is the highly central family-friendly location in Paris on the edge of the Champ des Mars, steps from the Eiffel Tower. The family-sized living room and diner table makes it a great space for a large family of 5 or 3 adults and 2 children. For highly local trips, there is bicycle and car rental outside the door (Velib and Autolib), and the Gros Caillou area of restaurants and bars is walking distance away.

Why Kids Love it

The apartment is great for all ages and includes 2 bedrooms to suit children, 1 with a twin bed and the other with a bunk bed, extra bed and ensuite bathroom. There are plenty of toys and books for kids in French and some in English. The playful design is sure to delight all-comers; one kids bedroom has a cute children’s table, desk in the corner and garland of pom-poms. Nearby attractions for youngsters include playgrounds, old-fashioned carousel, pony riding and puppet show at the Champ de Mars, museums within walking distance (Palais de Tokyo, Musée du Quai Branly, Musée de l'Homme, Trocadéro) and a pedestrian riverbank with kid-friendly activities and restaurants, ideal for walking, cycling and strollers.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. The apartment is child safe: the owners have 3 kids and made sure that it is safe for all all ages. It is on the fifth floor with an elevator and an onsite caretaker during office hours. Children may need supervision on the balconies. No pets. No smoking inside the apartment. Car rental not advised with very reliable public transit routes in the area and no parking at the apartment. A bus runs to the Jardin du Luxembourg and Latin Quarter from this street and the Air France Bus ("Bus Direct") to both airports is across the street.

About the Location

The residence is in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, in the Champ de Mars area. The Eiffel Tower and park are steps from the building and there are highly efficient transport routes (metro, bus and intercity trains) within a 5-minute walk, taking you to anywhere in Paris. The RER C is steps away and runs direct to the Château de Versailles. Charles de Gaulle Airport is a 40-minute drive away; Orly is 30 minutes away and the Eurostar is 25 minutes away.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom apartment is on 1 level and includes: 1 large ensuite bedroom with a kingsize bed, private balcony and bathroom with bathtub plus sofa and large iMac used as a TV. The second bedroom has a bunkbed and extra bed underneath plus attached bathroom with shower. The third bedroom has a single bed for an adult or child plus extra bed if needed and an attached small office space and piano. The large living room has sofas and a 3-metre long wooden dining table for up to 10 people. The kitchen has all amenities including a microwave, juice extractor, waffle and raclette machine. There is no outdoor space.

Style Notes

Parisian chic. Melding classic Parisian touches - ceiling moldings, herringbone flooring, original fireplaces - with modern day fixtures, street art paintings, contemporary photography and design furniture, this apartment is truly the best of modern Paris. Bedrooms are light, minimalist in design and spacious; the main living space is a double-sized room with sofas and a large wooden table. In a 1913 Haussmann-era building on the Champs de Mars, literally steps from the Eiffel Tower, it is light-filled and fabulous. We love the alternative bookcases, the Louis Ghost chairs and the cozy, colorful kids rooms.

We are a french family and have 3 kids, two girls (7 and 9) and a boy (11). We are born and raised parisians and love traveling to Italy, Asia (and in particular japan and Cambodia were we lived for 4 years), NY, Quebec. We like to take our bikes and ride the banks of the river, stop for a drink or have oysters at Rosa Bonheur.

The appartement is fantastic. The location is easily accessible, with loads in walking distance. Great to potter, loads of nearby walks, bars and restaurants (recommendations provided by Jeanne). Travel into the centre of Paris and out to Versailles is really easy. The appartement itself is spacious, well equipped and strikes just the right balance of homely and cool.

Our family couldn't have imagined a better stay! Jeanne's home was immaculate with plenty of family friendly features and an amazing location. The flat itself was well laid out, spacious, and beautifully decorated. Terrific views. Thank you for making our week just perfect!

Picnics with a view of the Eiffel Tower

Where better to have a picnic than at the Champ de Mars, the large park beside the Eiffel Tower in the heart of Paris where Parisians gather to celebrate national events? This area is great for families - walking distance from many key attractions and with playgrounds, grocery stores, bakeries and museums to visit all within walking distance.
