Points of Interest

  • Eiffel Tower

    Get a jaw-dropping view from the Seine of this glorious heart of the City of Lights. Grab bread, wine and cheese on rue Cler and head to a picnic in the shadow of this architectural grande dame. It's just a 5 minute walk away.

  • Michel Chaudun Chocolatier

    Just steps from the apartment, this premier chocolate shop sets the bar for all to reach. Paris critics agree that Michel is rivaling the famous La Maison du Chocolat where he trained.

    Stroll the most famous street in the world and enjoy its shops, cafés and amazing architecture.

  • Le Pont de l'Alma

    Pass by and pay homage at Diana's eternal torch — the memorial above the tunnel where the Princess was killed in the infamous car crash (on the way to either the RER C or the Line 9 Alma Marceau Metro stop)

  • Parc du Champ de Mars

    The gardens of this famous neighborhood park are the perfect place for a picnic, or you can walk, run, bicycle, roller-skate or people-watch. It features 4 playgrounds, a puppet theatre, a hand-cranked carousel, pony rides and old pedal cars.

Eateries

  • rue Cler Market

    This lively street features cafés, restaurants, gourmet shops and specialty markets of all kinds — just 2 streets below rue de l'Université

    One of the most popular cafés in the neighborhood with daily blackboard specials at reasonable prices. Popular with the chic crowd of the quartier, but no reservations, so arrive early for a table in the covered outdoor area.

  • Olivier and Cie

    Now becoming popular in the US, thanks to their products being sold by Williams and Sonoma, you can pick up some specialties at significantly lower prices than in the US. If nothing else, stop in to sample their infused oils, such as the lemon olive oil, especially good on salads, or the basil olive oil which works fabulously for grilled fish.

A driver is available during your stay. While taking a cab may provide the "ultimate city experience," Serge is more reliable and much more pleasant than most cabs. You can arrange transport in advance from and to the airport. serge.molho@gmail.com
