As seen in Prima Maison! A Special Feature about La Belle Notre Dame and our Interior Designer and Architect Martine di Mattéo and Mosaîste Véronique Husson in Prima Maison Magazine!

The world’s most famous church, La Cathédral Notre Dame de Paris, is the spiritual and geographical center of Paris. There is a marker in the square in front of the Cathedral that designates “kilometer zero” from which all distances to and from Paris, are measured. La Belle Notre Dame is 100 meters from this spot, so where better to immerse yourself in the splendor of Paris than in the very heart of the city where life began!?

Under the direction of our talented designer, Martine di Matteo, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has been transformed into a masterpiece of style and comfort. On the third floor with elevator, this luxury apartment will make your stay in Paris absolutely perfect.

From the entrance, you will immediately be struck by the apartment's bold and beautiful color scheme of blacks, whites, pinks and chartreuse's. Elegant silk draperies, high quality upholstery and several unique features make this apartment one-of-a-kind. To add to the artistic touch is an array of extensive custom mosaic tile work done by "mosaiiste," Veronique Husson, who contributed her beautiful handiwork in other of our finest Parler Paris Apartments.

The first bedroom on the right as you enter boasts of this beautiful tile-work at the head of the queen-size bed (which can be made up as two separate twins), with the roman numerals MCLXIII, representing the year that the cornerstone of the Cathedral was laid (1163). The twin of this work of art can be found in the glassed-in shower in the apartment’s en suite bath, which includes a sink and heated towel rack. This bedroom has shelves and hanging space on each side of the bed, as well as a comfortable chair. The window overlooks a quiet courtyard.

The second bedroom on the left as you enter is similarly enhanced, with a whimsical painting of the Cathedral itself, an original work by artist Pascal Amblard, done specifically for the apartment. One entire wall of this bedroom is devoted to mirrored closets for plenty of storage. The bed can be made up as separate twins.

Just outside this bedroom is the separate toilet with sink. Next to that is the second luxurious bath, with a large tub/shower combination, a heated towel rack, as well as a combined washer/dryer and lots of storage space.

The living room area of the apartment includes a plush three-seater sofa and armchair, a typical Parisian fireplace (ornamental) with large mirror. For those that need to catch up on some work or just check a few emails, there is a desk that is part of a built-in wall unit, which adds to the great amount of storage space in the apartment.

The open, angled kitchen is very well equipped, with full-sized oven, a two burner vitro ceramic stove-top, built-in microwave, fridge and freezer and dishwasher. Of course, the kitchen is completely furnished with all pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils that you will need.

The four-person dining room table sits conveniently next to the open kitchen over it hangs a stunning glass framed chandelier -- a special feature that symbolizes the mix of contemporary and old-world style.

A large flat screen TV with DVD Blu-ray player is mounted on the wall and is visible from throughout the central area of the apartment. There are over one hundred channels available, several of them in English.

Included is high speed wireless Internet and unlimited free phone calls to over 100 countries, including cell phones in the U.S. and Canada.

As with all of our apartments, all bedding and an ample supply of towels are provided.

Listen to the bells... A wonderful apartment just one half block from Notre Dame, which makes it in a location which is at the center of tourist Paris. A taxi stand is right across the street and other public transportation is within easy walking distance. The apartment is furnished with ...

Comfortable Apartment in a Central Location. My wife and I and our son and daughter-in-law stayed in La Belle Notre Dame for 10 days. The two primary reasons we chose this apartment were its central location and that it had an elevator. Unfortunately, the elevator was not operational for the ...

Wonderful location, beautifully furnished- Four of us (two couples) spent four nights here in April 2012. We booked because of the location - a half-block from Notre Dame cathedral - and despite the pictures on the website, which we felt were rather garish. The pictures do not do it justice; ...

Exceptional! I could not have found a better apartment in Paris. This was my first time to rent an apartment in Europe and it was perfect. I won't stay in a hotel again, especially after finding La Belle Notre Dame. The location is absolutely perfect! Steps from the cathedral. Less ...
