Finding the perfect Paris holiday apartment is a problem most of us wished we had more often.
Luckily work takes me to Paris every year or so.
I want to share with you my secret Parisien pied a terre.
This apartment in the 2nd Arrondisement is wonderfully decorated and so comfortable – for one, a couple – or with a pull-out sofa in the lounge a family of four can be easily accommodated.
Special Apartments choose all their apartments very carefully. They are all extremely well-presented, immaculately clean and filled with little homely treasures. And very reasonably priced especially with the current exchange rates.
I love the dramatic theatrics of this space.
The four room apartment is accessed by a lift making lugging your suitcases a little easier on the back.
Exceptionally comfortable bed and heavenly pillows..
And again stylishly selected fabrics, occasional chairs and accessories.
The fireplaces are purely aesthetic. There is a very effective ducted heater and airconditioner in the lounge.
The bathroom is small but functional.
The shower has a strong rose of hot water
The vanity has a cupboard underneath with plenty of room for your toiletries.
aaahhhhh…. the kitchen. The essential ingredient in any Parisien apartment just near the main fresh food markets on Rue Montorgueil.
Lovely roomy kitchen table
all the mod cons including a fabulous gas stove and electric oven
I actually threw a dinner party here for my Paris friends. Fresh organic barbecued chicken, a large tossed salad and apple tart for dessert.
Whether you’re looking for digs for the night or for an extended holiday this Special Apartment
ticks all my boxes.
Check out Saucy’s post in 2010 about the Rue de Montorgueil food markets nearby and I can almost guarantee you’ll be booking that holiday to Paris like a flash.
