My Tuileries Jewel Apartment
Situated just a few meters from the Jardin des Tuileries, this prestigious apartment of 220m2 is the birthplace of French emperor Napoleon III. Magnificently restored to highlight its original moldings and fireplaces, it today benefits from all modern comforts. The building is secure (door codes, interphone with cameras, elevator, reinforced door) and the neighborhood (one of central Paris’s most luxurious) is extremely safe.
The apartment is laid out in the following way.
– An entrance hall with low-level lighting.
– Opposite the entrance is a large reception room with ceilings over 3.5m high and large French doors that give onto a balcony with a view over the Jardin des Tuileries.
– Next to the reception room, the dining room has a Baccarat chandelier and a table for eight people, so you can welcome your friends in a contemporary atmosphere. The fully equipped open kitchen is in the same room. There is also a laundry room with an extra refrigerator, washer-dryer and dryer.
– Right of the entrance hall, a cozy and quiet bedroom with queen-size bed (160 x 200cm) overlooks an interior courtyard.
– Left of the entrance is the main bedroom with king-size bed (180 x 200cm), which also overlooks the quiet courtyard. This bedroom is air-conditioned, and has an ensuite bathroom (shower, bathtub, WC) and an extremely large walk-in closet.
Adjoining the reception room, overlooking the street, is:
– A small reception room that might once have been called a boudoir. It is used as an office, but could also be a bedroom for a guest or a child as the sofa can be transformed into a single bed.
– After the boudoir is the third bedroom, also air conditioned, with a king-size bed (180 x 200cm). This room has an ensuite bathroom with shower, old-style Parisian bathtub and WC. From this bedroom you also have access to the main bedroom’s walk-in closet.
Each bedroom has its own TV set, and there is another set in the reception room. High-speed Internet and Wi-Fi are available throughout the apartment. Also available as an option are the services of a housekeeper, chauffeur and chef.
You are two steps away from everything there is no better situation in Paris! At your feet the Musée du Louvre (Louvre museum), the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (museum of decorative arts), the Seine river and its barges, the place du Marché Saint-Honoré (Saint-Honoré Marquet square) and its trendy restaurants. Without forgetting la place de la Concorde (Concord square) and place Vendôme (Vendome square) (with its jewlers), decorated with a column from the top of which reigns a statue of Napoleon.
You will have only to cross rue Rivoli to go for a walk in the Tuilleries garden. What a joy to go there on a morning run or to stroll along the basins, designed by André Le Notre, Louis XVI’s gardener, to whom we most notably owe the gardens of the Versaills Castle.
Rue d’Alger is framed by rue de Rivoli on one side and rue Saint Honoré on the other. A true barometer for Parisian trends, this street is a true landmark for everything relating to fashion in Paris: Et vous, Joseph, BCBG Max Azira, Jimmy Choo, Sandro, Maje, Manoush, Maison de Famille, Vilbrequin, Zadig et Voltaire, Claudie Pierlot, Jérôme Gruet, Chantal Thomass, Bonpoint, Baby Tuileries, Zegna… without forgetting Colette, the hippest boutique in Paris, only two minutes from your home.
A few streets away, you can stroll in the garden of the Palais-Royale, a flowering restful sanctuary. Going up l’avenue de l’Opéra, you discover l’Opéra Garnier, one of the most beautiful monuments of the capital. And there you are, near the « grands magasins » : Printemps et Galeries Lafayette, two temples for shopaholics.
Save some energy to visit the Centres Georges Pompidou- Beaubourg, the third most visited monument in Paris after the Eiffel tower and the Louvre museum. An essential landmark of modern art. You will conclude your visit to the museum by admiring the typical Parisian zinc roofs from Georges restaurant all the way at the top.
The most gourmet among you will be lured by the palace restaurants that surround you: le Ritz, l’hôtel Meurice, le Park Hyatt, le Crillon, l’Hôtel Costes, all this less than 10 minutes walk away. And why not take a cocktail class at the Park Hyatt bar.
At your feet, you dispose of a crowd of excellent and welcoming resturantes that you must try: Ferdi, le Pinxo, le Royal Madeleine & Chez Flottes, two true french « brasseries » to savor true Parisian specialties: le Voltaire, one of our favorite restaurants, and, on the other side of the Seine river, the restaurant du Palais-Royal: le Café Marly, with its incomparable view of the Louvre pyramide
At snack time, offer yourself a sweet break in one of these three tearooms: Jean-Paul Hévin, a chocolatier who bakes intricate cakes, Angelina, a legend of Paris (with its extremely famous Mont Blanc, a cake with a chestnut cream and meringue base) or Laduréé, where tasting the macaroons is mandatory for all respectable foodies.
Only 15 minutes away by foot (or 3 metro stops, or five minutes by bike, there is a public bike rental station at the foot of your apartment building), you will arrive on the most beautiful avenue of the world, the Champs-Elysées. There must also be a stop at the Grand Palais, a renowned museum in Paris.
You will only have to cross the Seine, (and why not use the Pont des Arts, one of the most charming bridges of the capital) to stroll the « Rive Gauche » (left bank). Here you are, close to the Musée d’Orsay, a few steps away, the neighborhood of Saint Germain des Prés where there is a concentration of cafés and boutiques. There you will discover the Boulevard Saint-Germain, and the church by the same name, also not to be missed are two Cafés : Café Flore and Deux Magots, made famous by the novelists and personalities of the XIX
