"The apartment is incredibly quiet, given that it is in the middle of the city !"
This sumptuous Parisian loft under the eaves possesses audacious volumes, which give pride of place to the immense apparent woodwork. The magnificent master beams give rhythm and life to the room and an incredible seal to the apartment.
At the entrance, a double bedroom and a shower room make a discreet corner, away from the main room, structured by the beams of the roof. This first room is a comfortable refuge on which is watched by a portrait of Duke Ellington. The shower room, of a beautiful sunny yellow, marries the original curves.
Heading over to the living room, a space that plays the card of the eclecticism, you will find an 18th century fireplace, a counterpoint to the august and rustic side of the beams, while the kitchen area invites itself through a semi-cooking island with contemporary black lacquered lines.
The kitchen of this Parisian loft under the eaves is hidden behind the staircase that leads to the first floor; pleasantly lit by a large window and warmed up by the red tones of the terracotta floor tiles. In the center of the living space, the table will host large, friendly guests, while the large blue corner sofa and armchairs invite you to laze around.
A beautiful staircase with curves in harmony with the framework leads to the upper floor of this Parisian loft under the eaves. There is found a small children's room with two modular single beds, tenderly decorated with birds. From this cozy nest you are able to see the rooftops of Paris.
We then access the bathroom is decorated in shades of watercolor gray and has both a bathtub and a shower cubicle.
Finally, the comfortable large double room by which the visit ends has a large bay window that overlooks the living room.

Located in a neighborhood full of history, this Parisian loft under the eaves is just a few steps from many streets and monuments that preserve the memory of a fascinating medieval past. Rue Froissart, which gives part of its name to the Saint-Sébastien-Froissart metro station (line 8), owes its name to Jean Froissart. This 14th century chronicler provided historians with valuable insights of the Hundred Years War.
The Boulevard des Filles-du-Calvaire, on the other hand, recalls the location of the convent and gardens of the Benedictines of Notre-Dame du Calvaire. Even though his Paris convent, seized during the French Revolution, no longer exists, the congregation still has three monasteries in France today.
It would be unthinkable to miss the visit of the Picasso Museum, housed in a former mansion of the seventeenth century, Hotel Salé. The museum is just a few minutes' walk from this Parisian loft under the eaves. Of course, it includes many of the Artists masterpieces, but its collection also includes works done by Diego Giacometti, Alberto Giacometti's younger brother. Picasso ordered him furniture and lighting designed exclusively for the Hotel Salé.
The neighborhood of this Parisian loft under the eaves is also one of the most chic of the capital and it contains many addresses as trendy as confidential, such as the shop of leather goods Isaac Reina. Isaac Reina, a native of Barcelona, first studied architecture before devoting himself to fashion. He has worked, among others, for the Maison Martin Margiela.
The discreet charm of these historic streets also pervades the pastries and restaurants where you will find an original and elegant cuisine. We can have lunch in the restaurant III; on rue du Roi Doré, which takes pride in the freshness of its dishes and refuses to freeze in order to serve delicious dishes in an intimate setting.
For a sweet break, head over on pilgrimage to Popelini: inspired by the pastry cook of Catherine de Medicis herself, an Italian who created the recipe of the choux cream, Lauren Koumetz has put back into fashion the choux, whose unctuous custard cream reveals subtle aromas.
Finally, dinner can be taken at Soon Grill, to taste the surprising and refined flavors of the best Korean cuisine. There are of course kimchi and bibimbap, but also very nice pieces of grilled meat.
To start another day of sightseeing, you can take a quieter pace and take time to savor a real American brunch at Rachel's. Beware; you have to arrive early, as the place is extremely popular.
