Jardin du Luxembourg
"Magnificent apartment not far from the Saint Michel quarter"
This original vacation rental in Paris is a superb maisonette with a courtyard, just opposite the Luxembourg Gardens. This house stands on three levels. One enters by the ground floor which gives on a small privative paved courtyard. At this level you will find the living room, the dining room and the kitchen.
The living room is a space where it is good to bask under the large canopy that floods the room with light. The furniture forms a heterogeneous ensemble but yet skillfully chosen to evoke a bohemian chic of odds and ends, in a refined rustic ambience.
The large dining room, which combines white and blond wood, evokes a country side kitchen, spacious and friendly.
On the second and third floors of this original vacation rental in Paris, two very spacious bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, with a shower on the second floor and on the third floor a bath.
The room on the second floor retains this country spirit, with a striped cotton carpet and a small stool patinated by the years in front of the dressing table. A comfortable sofa and a lovely travel trunk complete the decor, while a collage by Christel Fresquet sits above the headboard. On both sides of the bed, two pieces of lasured furniture in white serve as mismatched night tables. The adjoining bathroom to the bedroom is painted in a lovely red brick color that evokes the Provence region of France.
The third floor bedroom, under the eaves, is decorated in an elegant white with accented bright red touches. A large well of light in the roof drops a gentle light on the room. The old-style gray furniture gives a romantic look to this lovely room, contrasting with a comfortable armchair and with beautiful red and white fabric as well as with the secretary's chair, which is covered with red velvet. The en-suite bathroom is decorated in a mysterious and intimate dark gray.
