Perks for the Parents

This bright and beautiful Hausmannian apartment is right next to the Louvre in the heart of Paris and has fantastic views, an easy living space and 3 bedrooms. It is located between the Louvre, Les Halles and the Palais Royal. It is ideal for those with a young family with baby care equipment available. Within a 5-minute walk you can discover rue Saint Honoré and the famous luxury stores such as Hermès, Lanvin and Colette, and Saint Germain is just a 10 minute walk away, across the Seine. Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and the Opera house Garnier are 15 minutes’ walk away.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has plenty of toys and books for kids under 10 and there is a great family space with a living room large enough for wheeled toys. It is a short walk from local playgrounds and the 2 kids rooms are bright and spacious. A crib, high chair, baby toys and English-speaking babysitters can be offered on request. Alongside blockbuster art museums The Louvre and the Centre Pompidou, kids will love boat tours on the Seine and the playgrounds and carousel at the Tuileries Gardens.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. The residence is on 1 level and is on the fifth floor of an apartment block with an elevator. There is a balcony running all the way around the apartment with a lock 1.25m high that cannot be reached by kids. Children will need to be watched on it. Car hire is not necessary or recommended - this is an easy destination to explore on foot and parking can be tricky. There is WiFi throughout. The master bedroom has a TV and DVD player plus air conditioning. The residence sleeps up to 6 adults and 1-3 additional children under 3 can also be accommodated in a toddler bed and 2 cribs.

It is in the heart of the city and is close to groceries stores, bakeries, cafés, a fresh fruit market, wine bars, excellent restaurants and any kind of store (from mid to luxury market depending on your needs). Within a 5-minute walk you will find the Centre Pompidou, the Palais Royal gardens, Les Halles and its park and playground, and the fresh food market on rue Montorgueil. Charles de Gaulle airport is a 40-minute taxi ride away and the Gare du Nord for Eurostar is a 15-minute drive away.

Style Notes

Spacious and bright Hausmannian apartment decorated in a very personal, minimal, tasteful and comfortable style. The apartment retains classic details including high ceilings, mouldings and parquet floors, and adds modern detailing in unique photography and playful artwork, and Mid Century furniture. We love the flying paper owl, the globe lampshades, the balcony with space for a morning coffee and views of the streets, and the serene decor.

French-Dutch Family : Julien, Esther, Lili (9 y), Nino (5 y) and Joe-Moon (18months). Esther is Dutch and works as a fashion designer. Julien is French and runs his own lawfirm. We love beautiful simple & real things and love travelling all together. We are also interested in flat exchanges (especially with Amsterdam, but any other destination could be of our interest). We live in the appartement we propose for rental. We love our place and have lived in our neighborhood for almost 10 years. A fantastic area in Paris.

Palais-Royal, The 1st arrondissement

the heart of tourist Paris

On the north bank of the Seine, this district is in the heart of tourist Paris, close to the Louvre, the Tuileries and the Seine itself. Kids will love the parks, carousels and boat rides; parents will love the low-key vibe and easy access to key attractions without the hustle and bustle or noise of other central areas. Don’t miss the Centre Pompidou’s interactive arts sessions for kids if you’re of a creative bent.
