Parisian Jewel: Hausman on Park

'La Parisienne', on the fourth floor with a lift, is a one-bedroom 42 square meter apartment designed by an Italian architect with the décor chosen by one of Australia's top interior designer.

It has the highest quality appliances including a Miele dishwasher and Samsung 360 degree high fidelity music/tv speaker as well as high quality cookwear, silver cutlery,and everything you need for a luxury holiday in Paris. Recently I found a box of beautiful new unused, turn of last century linen sheets made by nuns in rural France and sewed them into pillow cases and fitted sheets to make sets for the beds in the apartment. This kind of quality is difficult to find anywhere in these times.

There is a market and metro stop a stone's throw from the apartment with three metro stations and lines within five minutes walk. Right in the heart of the art district of Paris.

Apartments overlooking parks are rare in Paris and the window above this one lets in loads of sun all year round. You can just see the top of the Eiffel Tower lit up on the hour at night and, if you lean out the window, Sacre Coeur is just up the hill. There is a fresh gourmet food market alongside the park on Fridays. There are amazing restaurant and food shops minutes away as well as the sound of Parisian life in the park outside the window.

Although located in the 9th, the apartment borders the 18th and is just a short walk away from the artistic heart of Paris, Montmartre, with it's fabulous designer clothes and jewellery shops. Moulin Rouge and the theatre district of Pigalle is one metro stop or five minutes walk away.

There is also an open air tourist route bus stop almost outside the door, which takes you to every major tourist attraction in Paris, including the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Seine, Arch de Triomphe, Pompidou Centre and other major art galleries and museums.

Paris' art and theatre action is across the huge boulevarde on one end of the park, while the 9th arondissment itself has become the gentrified home of Parisian film makers and writers. It has trendy restaurants and the famous Rue des Martyrs and Rue Lepic has some of the best gourmet food shops in Paris.

Anver metro is a stone's throw from the apartment and the Seine is a half hour walk if you get stuck there after the metro closes. There is also a velib station (cheap bicycle rental stands all over Paris - 5 euros for one week) almost outside the apt and five more in close proximity.

Inside the apartment is spacious and elegant. Foldout leaves of the dining table make it comfortable for six. The Italian Marmarino bathroom with bath tub (bathtub) is luxurious and the gourmet kitchen inspires you to cook. There is a brand new quality leather sofa bed, just arrived from the U.K. (March 2016) with a 12cm (5") thick mattress for guests comfort.

The apartment is owned by best-selling Australian author Barbara Biggs, who often visits to write by the chair in front of the window. The spot where she wrote her third book, The Accidental Renovator: A Paris Story, which is about the apartment, it's renovation and the eccentric Parisians she met during 2004 when she lived in La Parisienne for seven months to renovate it. If you want to read more reviews (26 with 4.9 stars) you can see this listing on the vacation rental by owner site listing 101207.

There is a 50 euro cleaning fee. This does not show on the airbnb listing price because it isn't collected by airbnb but instead must be left in cash for the cleaner.
