"The small balcony on the courtyard was a nice surprise, very quiet in a very lively area"
This apartment on paved courtyard in Paris is a real gem. It is located in an old building of the 6th arrondissement; on the newly renovated facade you can still see the perimeters of the stone windows. You enter the building by a vaulted passage that leads to a small cobbled courtyard full of charm.
Once in the apartment, one is marveled at the superb antique staircase in dark wood. One must go up the steps to reach the main room. Here, the old beams reveal the original structure of this 17th century building, which gives the room an incredible charm. The owner chose a minimalist decoration, where the white tones dominate to better contrast with the old dark wood of the beams and the staircase.
The entire room of this apartment on paved courtyard in Paris gasps the discreet luxury of a beautiful address on the left bank. On the white background stands out beautiful elegant touches of the colors: gray and powdered pink. On the wall, that is located facing the exterior, white-paneled moldings add to the impression of a Parisian private mansion. The simple lines of the contemporary furniture and the large photos on the wall (including a view of New York) give the whole; an incomparable chic touch.
At the end of the room on the right, a small dressing room has taken the place of an old service-room in a recess of the wall. The large rustic sink gives it a little country air.
The apartment also has a superb small balcony that overlooks the calmness of the courtyard; the living area benefits from the large door-windows.
To the right of the entrance staircase towards the end of the main room you will find the double bedroom. The Access is via a well-stocked library. An Indian screen in carved wood guards the entrance. Decorated in the same spirit as the main room where contemporary lines have been chosen to highlight the old style of the apartment, the room mixes modern details and antique furniture, such as this charming striped armchair with turned wood armrests. The bed is covered with a quilt in boutis and the wall at the bottom is painted in a deep lavender blue.
The layout of the premises is original: the spacious bathroom is in the same room as the bedroom, for a sensation of unheard luxuries thanks to: the large bath with molded lion's feet, the wall covered with sandstone tiles and the long Mirror that surmounts the bathtub. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a low storage unit.

In the neighborhood of this apartment on paved courtyard in Paris you find the Rue Dauphine, the first street in Paris to have an alignment, that is to say a plan of urbanism which dictated the width of the path. The street, which owes its name to the Dauphin, son of Henri IV, was opened in 1607 and was the first street in Paris to be equipped with street lamps in 1763.
Another place full of history is the Procope on 13-rue de l'Ancienne Comédie. Founded in 1684, Le Procope is one of the oldest cafés in Paris. Voltaire, Diderot and d'Alembert were regular customers, and the cafe was the meeting place of the Club des Cordeliers, the revolutionary club of Danton and Marat. Today, you can taste traditional French cuisine in a luxurious setting.
One walks pleasantly in the passage Dauphine, where one can see vestiges of the enclosure wall of Philippe-Auguste. In this quiet pedestrian passage, sheltered from Parisian agitation, is found L'Heure Gourmande. This genuine tearoom, flavorful, offers hot drinks, cakes and pastries, as well as a sweet savory brunch. Everything is homemade, even the jam.
We emerge from the passage to dive into the effervescence of a very Parisian neighborhood. At; 56 rue de Seine, you can visit with pleasure the shop Kusmi Tea. The teahouse originally founded by Pavel Kousmichoff in St. Petersburg in 1867 came to Paris in 1917 after many vicissitudes. Resuscitated in 2003, the brand is still synonymous with quality teas and audacious and innovative fragrance blends.
Rue de Buci, one can come to satisfy a sweet envy chez Amorino. With its original fragrances and new creations that follow one another at a regular rhythm, Amorino has seduced the Parisians who crowd up at its counter. Ice cream, affogato, macaroons, crepes and waffles, one comes here to regain strength before continuing to beat the Parisian pavement.
A little further on the same street, the famous art-publishing house TASCHEN has its own shop. One comes to look through the superb albums that made the reputation of the house, in a beautiful setting with specific furniture. Calmness reigns here, all collected from a library.
Exoticism and scenery await you at the superb Trésor du Tibet boutique on 38 rue Dauphine. Its name of "Treasures" is not usurped. Discover the most beautiful and rare objects of Tibetan culture, as well as a collection of malas, to be composed by you.

Fans of meat, offal and good food will be at their ease Chez Fernand, while those who are looking for delicate and unexpected dishes will go to Christine, for a beef tataki or for lobster marinated in " Vanilla oil”.
