    Etoile - Charming Loft - it's Location is Superb - Safe Area



    * Right Bank — This apartment is located on Avenue de Friedland at two minutes from Champs Elysees. The proverbial 'most beautiful avenue in the world' is at the Heart of a glamorous revival as Laduree, Louis Vuitton, Virgin, and Sephora ha …


      We booked the apartment for 8 nights in mid-December for our stay in Paris on the first leg of a 3 week trip in Europe. It was heavenly! The owner, Philippe, was terrific! Very responsive and friendly. Here's my "hail of bullets" for others looking for a fantastic place to stay! Location: A+++ The apartment is a block and a half from the Arc de Triomphe. I can't adequately explain how breath taking it is to step out the front door of the courtyard and see that gorgeous monument! Definitely go up in the tower - lots of steps to the top, but an elevator is available if you need it. And perhaps it was the weather or time of year but no petition girls at all. Equally impressive are the massive wooden doors (very secure) that lead from the street to a lovely cobblestone courtyard. At the friend of the courtyard you enter the building and take the tiniest but not claustrophobic elevator to the 3rd floor, and then you climb two flights of stairs to the apartment. Just enough to work off those croissants! The Charles de Gaulle Etiole metro station is on the same side of the street just before you cross over to the Arc. From here you have easy access to the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower even heading to Versailles! Easy and comfortable. The apartment: Fabulous!!! Very comfortable, we'll equipped and layed out. You'll feel like you are truly returning home at the end of the day. Nice deep tub with shower - great for a bubble bath! Terrific hair dryer mounted on the wall. Comfy couch and seats, power strip with converter and US plugs in the living room, remote controlled lighting and we'll illustrated and annotated guides to using all appliances and electronics. Up the stairs to the loft bedrooms. The stairs are somewhat steep but we're used to scrambling up much steeper and narrower stairs from the saloon to the cockpit on our sailboat. A nice open landing that the kids used for playing leads to two bedrooms. One with a double bed and leads to a cozy alcove with a twin bed. Our daughters loved sleeping there and set up a rotation schedule on their own so that they each got to sleep in the alcove. The other side has a lovely queen bed and a computer available for use in case you dob't have devices to take advantage of the awesome free wifi. Both bedrooms have doors for privacy and skylights so that you can see the Eiffel Tower twinkling at night!
      I've had a hard time sitting down to write this review because everytime I think about our trip, this flat and Phillipe, I start to drift away thinking about how perfect our first trip to Paris really was. I have rented several times through VRBO because I feel that the owners of these homes go over and above to make your stay pleasent. Phillipe was different! In fact, he was even better! From the very start of the process he was always quick to respond, sending maps and directions when approprate, meeting us to walk through the flat upon our arrival ( with the weekly weather forcast in hand) and even helping us with phone calls! We loved the location of the flat, being able to stick our heads out the skylight and say goodnight to the " twinkling" Effel Tower was priceless. We had breakfast in the flat every morning and used the washer/dryer a few times. The heated towel bar was lovely, as was the instant hot water for showers. A plus for us 3 girls was having a seprate toilet room from the shower making getting ready a breeze! The flat is roomy and quite and clean. The location is perfect, with a metro stop just up the street. Also a plus, the bus from the airport drops you at the Arc de Triomphe for just a few euros. Just like the others have mentioned, the lift does not go all the way to the top floor, you still have to go up another couple of short flights. I looked forward to it after eating my way through Paris! And the stairs inside the flat are steep but not a problem for anyone unless you have agility issues or maybe toddlers. I can't wait for my next trip to Paris and I will be booking this flat again! Thanks again Phillipe for everything! #3girlsinparis
      The perfect place to spend your time in Paris. Everything was central to the apartment. We easily located some open markets and bought our meals to cook there. The subway is so close and once there, you can go anywhere. We had no problems working any of the appliances and were able to always have clean clothes. The apartment was very quiet and we couldn't hear any surrounding noise. Yes, the stairs getting to the apartment and in the apartment are an issue, if you are reasonably fit and agile you should have no problems with them. I equate it with descending stairs in a naval ship in that your full attention and use of your hands are required. But once in the loft, the beds were comfortable and more than adequate and the computer always worked for us. As others have stated, mind your head in the loft as the ceiling is low. But all in all these little issues could be worked around and the bottom line is--great place--great location.
      My family (kids aged 9 & 7) and I stayed in Philippe's apartment for a week over the February half term break. Philippe met us outside the building and led us through the secure entrance up to the apartment. The layout of the apartment is wonderful. The main floor contains the well stocked kitchen (clothes washer & dishwasher!), dining area, separate toilet & shower rooms & living room. In the loft area are the 2 rooms with double beds and a small single room. Our daughter loved the small single space, and though it did not have a door, she found it quite private and cozy. We could put the kids to bed earlier in the evening, and not feel like we were disturbing them by talking & watching TV downstairs. Philippe is very well organized and every appliance and function of the apartment is thoroughly documented in an easy to follow manual. Very impressive. The location of the apartment is incredibly convenient. It is only 1 block from the Arc de Triomphe and have that distance to the nearest Metro station. We could get anywhere in the city within a few minutes. We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend Philippe's apartment. We hope to stay there again!
      We have stayed in VRBOs in Paris on five different occasions and this one was the best. The other reviews, description and photos are dead on. To summarize, this unit had the combination of things we were looking for: amazing location, safe area, enough space for our family, close to public transport etc. It will be memorable for its fun loft with views of the city (and Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower) through skylights and for making us feel like we were really living in Paris. As others have commented, the stairs are are a little narrow and steep which wasn't a problem for us but might be for some.
      We stayed at this charming flat with my in-laws to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The flat had all of the amenities we could have asked for, including very detailed instructions and maps for the area. It was a one block walk to the metro, three blocks to a great bakery and supermarket, four blocks to the express bus to the airport and minutes away from delicious, non-touristy restaurants. The owner was really fantastic, very accommodating. We would absolutely stay there again without hesitation. It was a wonderful, truly Parisienne experience. Each night, I would pop my head through the skylight in the bedroom and watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle on the hour.
      My apologies for not sending my review sooner. My husband and I and one other couple decided to rent this loft for our first trip to Paris. We had a wonderful 2 week vacation and could not have asked for anything else in our accommodation choice. Phlippe was helpful throughout the process, helping us make some decisions on day trips and answering all our questions. When we finally met Philippe, we felt as though we had a new "ami". The loft has everything you need to feel at home. Everything has been thought of - instructions on how to use everything, decor, cleanliness, supplies etc. The location is absolutely fantastic!!!!! We have all told others about our wonderful loft when talking about our Paris experience. I hope to visit Paris again and would not look for any other accommodations. Merci Philippe for sharing your loft with us - hope to see you soon!
      I loved this apartment for our family (Mum, Dad, two daughters 17 & 20). Firstly, the position is great; the entrance was 40 meters from the CDG E'toile station, close to the Arc de Tromphe and one street away from the Champs Ellyses. In spite of this, it's still very quiet. The apartment itself is very good, with a lot of thought given to what is included. Everything we needed was there, from a fully equipped kitchen (with ample crockery, glassware and cutlery) to an eating space, large TV with a comprehensive collection of DVDs and imaginative lights. We were there in early January and the apartment was always cosy with the heating being very efficient. The sleeping areas are upstairs in a loft, and once you get used to ducking your head, you really can see the top third of the Eiffel Tower through the skylights/windows which have been installed. The owner, Philippe, was very helpful, meeting us at the apartment at the agreed time (actually we were 30 minutes late due to train delays and he was waiting patiently when we finally arrived) and returning our deposit at the agreed time. The only small reservation I'd have is that this apartment may not be suitable to people who might have trouble with the steep, narrow stairs leading to the loft (seniors perhaps, or small children may find them difficult), but for us it was a great apartment and I'd be happy to return there again.
      Started with this apartment. The location is great. The space is modern, clean, cozy and has wonderful personal touches. The apartment is quiet and very well taken care of. We stayed a week in Nov 2012. The neighborhood felt very safe, A very short walk into the surrounding streets and you can find high-fashion, regular shops, lots of restaurants/services and the Metro station. Walking out onto the street and seeing the Arc de Triomphe upon you was a magnificent site that we never tired of. A couple of other points: - 110/120v: Yes! There is a power bar in the main living room. Three USA outlets that are very important for any American with a bunch of computer devices. - Bedrooms: There is a main bed which I think feels more like a King Size bed. The second bedroom might be a Queen but might have been a Full Size. It’s a nice space regardless and you can easily get a couple of people in there. Our 15 year old stayed here. The last bedroom lies right behind and it’s small but stylish. Twin size. Our 9 year old daughter took this one and loved it. It was ‘her place’ and she was quite proud of it. Now, I’m 6’4 and weigh more than I should. The upstairs, while short on height, really wasn’t a problem at all. The bed was great, the three skylights give awesome views and I never felt cramped or crowded up there. - Steps: The building is 6 stories and the apartment is on the top floor. As mentioned in other reviews, the elevator goes to the 4th floor, then you have to use steps for the final two floors. It’s minor but if you have trouble with stairs you should consider this. You will also have to use a small staircase within the apartment to reach the bedrooms. - Movies/Music/Television/Internet Access: Movies in French and English, CDs, A very nice TV w/cable. Wi-Fi was excellent. There is also a Mac PC with a printer upstairs. Easy to use and came in handy a couple of times. - Smoke Detector: Yes - Documentation: Know how to work the washer/dryer all-in-one unit? Neither did we. Well there are simple, picture based, instructions for all the necessary items/appliances. One of those nice touches. - Kitchen: Fully furnished and the wife enjoyed it. I’ll just finish by saying we LOVE this place. The pictures offered are spot on. The owner is very nice, easy to work with and offers rapid communication. We recommend this place highly and, should we return to Paris, would first look to take this place once again.
      We stayed at this appartment for our short vacation at Paris. Since this appartment is situated in center of Paris, it provides excellent transport access. The appartment is very clean, beautifully decorated, confortable linens, very charming upstair loft, incredibly quiet, sunlight from every 3 large windows and 3 roof rear windows. This appartment also provides almost everything we traveller need such as WIFI, DVD palyer+huge selection of DVDs, local free call, cable TV, well equipped kitchen...our kids still talk about the gorgious night view of Eiffel tower through roof rear window(they actually cried when they found out our departure). We especially appreciate for the Owner, Philippe's personallity. He has been extremely helpful and sincere during our stays and even untill the moment of refund our deposit. We absolutely recomend this appartment to everybody who thinking to stay at Paris!!!!
      This was a girlfriend trip and we stayed here for a week. Met Philippe upon arrival. He showed us around the flat which was well equipped with washer,dryer, microwave, coffee maker etc. Very secure location and the metro stop is two minutes away. Great chocolate shop practically next door. Stairs to the loft may be a bit tricky for the elderly. All in all, a good experience. Philippe was a good host, and very prompt with answering emails.
      Our stay at 32 Friedland will be remembered as an agreeable one. The apartment was well-outfitted, tastefully decorated and assuredly cosmopolitan. Philippe was very helpful and his signage within the loft proved absolutely didactic. The Forsters

      Flat n.76 Amazing view on the Pompidou
      Some trees, a pedestrian zone and the famous George Pompidou Centre are the amazing view you will enjoy from the windows of this very well situated two rooms apartment. The high floor (third) makes the view even more attractive.

Bathroom The bath room is very functional and is decorated accordingly with style of the apartment. The floor is tiled. The area The fourth and not the fourth. This area belongs to the fourth arrondissement but at the same time it draws its very west borders. The Centre Georges Pompidou, created by the famous italian architect Renzo Piano, has changed this west side of the Marais area into something different. Many cultural events are organized inside or just outside this Centre. Many artists come to exhibit in the square just in front of the Centre and plenty of tourists, during the day, visit this area to breath the atmosphere of the modern architecture of the Centre and its integration within the ancient Marais&rsquo; houses. Beside the Pompidou there is also the IRCAM which is a place dedicated to the research and developpement of music and acoustic. Bars, restaurants and jazz clubs keep this area alive until late in the night. Walking south, north, east or west starting from here, you will discover four zones very differents one from the other: definitely an exciting place where to stay. Rates do not include the compulsory insurance. Discounted rates can be negotiated for stays longer than 15 days. Please inquire with me to get a more accurate quotation of the rates + insurance.
