Our apartment is located in rue des Colonnes, next to Opéra (5mins walk). The closest métro is the line 3 (stop Bourse at 1min walk) in the second arrondissement.
If you take the coach from Roissy CDG you will arrive directly at Opéra and then it takes 4 mins with a cab or 10 mins walk with a luggage.
We like our apartment for its absolute calm and brightness. We searched for it during 5 years before deciding on this one. It was totally rebuilt one year ago and the 517 sq. ft. / 48m² are very comfortable for 2.
Because we are not very good at cooking we will be more than happy to inform you on the best places to eat or have drinks in the neighbourhood. There is a lot of very very good restaurants just downstairs or around the Palais de la Bourse (Stock Exchange), there is also one or two to forget about :)
The famous Quartier Montorgueil is very close also (1 métro stop or 8mins walk) with very good restaurants and trendy shops. The Grands Boulevards are just behind the block with the famous brasserie Bouillon Chartier.
We both went many times to Tokyo and we would be pleased to welcome people from Japan :)
If you plan to visit Paris with ease this location is perfect:
5 mins walk to enjoy the Palais Royal gardens with the Buren columns
10 mins to arrive in St Germain (bus stop downstairs)
10 mins to Montmartre with the bus at the end of the street
10 mins to the Louvre by simply walking down the rue de Richelieu
10 mins from the Champs-Elysées by taking the line 9
10 mins to arrive in the Marais by taking the line 3
You will also find a bike rental station at 100 meters away.
The flat is at the 2nd floor with large and easy stairs in a renewed 17th century building. The rue des Colonnes in front will surely be appreciated by architecture lovers.
The bedroom is equiped with a queen size Tempur bed to rest plenty, with a chest of empty drawers. The bedroom and the rest of the appartment windows are on the courtyard, you can be assured to rest camly.
Regarding the bathroom, towels will be provided and the bathtub is very large to welcome two people. A good working hairdryer is in the drawers also. Sadly we didn't manage to start the Toto toilets we brought back from Tokyo (if you are Japanese you are very welcome to translate the notice to us :)
The kitchen is equiped with a microwave, a kettle, an oven, a washing machine, a dishwasher and a fridge. Tea, Nespresso coffee and free drinks are at your disposal.
In the living room you will enjoy the HD TV with the DVD player, the cable TV or the X-box. Equiped with a Dolby Digital Bose sound system. A manuel will help you using those. And the large and comfy couch will become your best friend after a long day of visits.

The password for the Wi-Fi connection will be easy to find and easy to type in.
No pets allowed and if you absolutely need to smoke please do it at the window.
