"Chez Antoine" - Long Term Rental

Modeled after a typical Parisian bistro, "Chez Antoine" is a completely newly renovated apartment located in the very heart of Le Marais. The location could not be more convenient with the Saint-Paul Métro entrance nearby and everything Le Marais has to offer at your feet. You will have non-stop fun staying at Chez Antoine – just what is intended by the extraordinary décor by Interior Architect, Martine di Mattéo.

With Parisian coach lights providing the illumination throughout, centuries old, original, exposed wood beams and a combination of tiled and parquet flooring, the accent is on charm! Entering this first floor apartment the first thing you will see is the oak bar which stands in the corner to the left, in front of a series of glass shelves with mirrored backing. A collection of beer glasses lines the shelves invitingly. The bar does double duty as a workspace and comes with a barstool.

To the right is a bistro table with seating for 4 people, on a red leather banquette and two authentic bistro chairs. A bit further along, through an entrance framed by exposed original beams, is a corner kitchen. This extremely efficient space contains a refrigerator with freezer, a small dishwasher, microwave oven, toaster oven, combination washer/dryer, stovetop with two burners, sink and cabinetry. Also included are a complete array of kitchenware (all cooking utensils, dinner and tableware, serving pieces) an electric coffee maker/espresso maker and electric tea kettle.

Just past the kitchen is the reading area with padded window seats, sandwiched between a well- stocked bookshelf and a stately fireplace (non-functioning) with large antique mirror. A handcrafted wooden closet with etched glass provides well thought-out storage. The windows are equipped with wooden shutters that open and close easily as needed.

From here one enters the living room with its three-seat sofa that converts into a high-end double bed, and handcrafted coffee table made from antique Haussmannian iron. Also in iron is the one-of-a-kind console made from an original Haussmannian balcony grill and topped by a beautiful arched mirror. On the wall above the sofa is an original painting by Parisian artist, Pascal Amblard, depicting a Parisian café from days gone by. The 42-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player sits on the opposite wall.

Exit the living room into the hall where you will discover a marble and glass bathroom with a very unique and handsome columnar sink, toilet and shower with glass doors. The heated towel rack will quickly dry the abundant towels that are provided with the apartment and warm the bathroom to cozy.

Past the bathroom is an ample-sized bedroom with new queen-size bed that can be separated into twins, a flat-screen TV with DVD player, made to measure wooden closet with decorated crystal panels and bistro handles. The headboard of the bed is actually the second on-theme painting by Pascal Amblard -- this one in colors to match the bedroom décor. Beside the bed is a café table and chair, perfect for catching up on late night emails. Unusual for a one-bedroom apartment, Au Vieux Paris has an en suite powder room with toilet and sink.

Both the bedroom and the living room are equipped with brand new built-in air conditioning units that are sure to keep you cool if your time in Paris heats up.

Included with the apartment is cable television, with over 100 channels on both TVs, a well-stocked video library, WiFi and free telephone with answering machine. Long-distance calls to land lines in over 100 countries are free. This extends to calls to cell phones in the US and Canada.

Available for minimum 3-months, with a 30 day cancellation clause
