Courcelles Mansion, 17th district, Paris Vacation Rental
You could easily get lost in this apartment. The layout allows for privacy whilst also providing a vast common space to be enjoyed together. We think you'll enjoy the numerous antiques and unique decorative items collected from all around the world.
Aristocratic dimensions and a royal finish come as standard in this extraordinary apartment that welcomes ten discerning guests in its rarefied embrace. While the proportions are haut bourgeois, the feel is more crouching tiger, hidden kingdom. Be emperor of your domain here in this 400 square metre space filled with light. Underfoot are superb herringbone parquet floors honeyed with age while moulded plasterwork lends style and accent to the whole. It may take you a while to curb the impulse to 'oooh' and 'ahhh' but within this vast empire are the deep comforts of modern life – plasma screens, wi fi, Bose sound systems, sumptuous squashy sofas, beautifully appointed bathrooms. Look more closely to discover the many hidden treasures gathered from the Orient – mysterious artworks, antique embroideries, satins and silks lend an exotic flavour to this otherwise quintessentially Parisian apartment.
There are four generous double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, while a large sofa-bed in the library provides additional accommodation. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the apartment with light and views of similar period buildings provide a Parisian backdrop to your own piece of theatre. The living room, the gallery, the dining room and one of the bedrooms look onto a wonderful garden, your own secluded oasis in the heart of the city.
As with any court, there are private spaces to retreat to, but the apartment really comes to life as a public space for entertaining and sharing from the broad entrance hallway, filled with light and lined with exciting antiques to the vast open salon, the next-door library and the elegant dining room. To top it off, daily cleaning is included, there is a resident chef should you require his services and a private secretary to guide you through your stay. What more could one possibly want from the crème de la crème parisienne?
Just off the rue de Courcelles, seven minutes from the Champs Elysées, and surrounded by boutique stores – Comptoir des Cotonniers for example – as well as fabulous local butchers and grocers, here in the upmarket 17th arrondissement you are peacefully located away from the worst of the city's noise and yet within a heartbeat of central Paris. Just north-east of Avenue Foch, the 17th arrondissement is a residential Haussmannian oasis planted on the right bank of the Seine. Whether you fancy an early-morning jog or a late picnic lunch, the peaceful space of the Parc Monceau lies at your feet. Painted frequently by Monet, it is marked by its informal, 'English' style of planting. No visit is complete before you have found the replica Egyptian pyramid, the Dutch windmill and the Chinese fort. The metro Courcelles is a mere 150 metres away, and there are a number of shops to choose from in the vicinity.
