The “L”Atelier du Passage” is a gorgeously furnished one bedroom apartment for 1-4 Guests tucked into a historic and quiet 500 year old passageway once inhabited by artisans.
Renovated and updated with all the modern requirements, this apt mixes French antique charm and international craftsmanship, with a modern Atelier (workshop) design.
Featuring original elements from the 17th century, such as exposed stone walls, handcarved ceiling beams, and wooden floors, you will be transported to a former time of artisanship. Nestled in a quiet passageway with local galleries and boutiques, Atelier is at the heart of Paris’ latest art hub and a short walk to the Pompidou Center of Modern Art. At this cozy hideaway, you will feel a world away from the bustle of the city.
BEDROOOM: The bedroom features a very comfortable double bed and the custom cabinetry and an armoire will allow you to tuck your clothing out of the way. The passageway offers a silence that is hard to find in Paris, and the bedroom, located at the back of the apartment is even quieter than the rest of the unit. An alarm clock will make sure you don’t oversleep..
BATHROOM: The bathroom includes a beautiful Italian shower made of stone. Accessed only from inside the bedroom, you will enjoy modern amenities with a walk-in shower, toilet, and sink. We provide towels, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.
COUCH-BED: The sofa in the main living area is also a comfortable, high quality double size Italian leather sofa-bed to welcome two additional guests.
Full linens are provided for both beds.
KITCHEN & DINING: The kitchen offers all you need for a nice meal at home. You will find a gas stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave/grill, wooden counters, fridge/freezer. The antique dining table in the living area allows seating for up to 6 guests.
We have provided all you will need to cook and dine at home. Plates, drinking and wine glasses, cutlery, knives, pots and pans, cooking oils, spices, and more.
CLOTHES WASHER You will find a clothes washing machine in the apartment, and we will provide detergent. There is no clothes dryer, but we offer a drying rack that you can place near windows while you are out.
THE PASSAGEWAY The apartment looks onto a quiet passageway with shops and greenery for a tranquil and historic ambiance. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to step 400 years into the past and experience chic and bohemian Paris living.
The passageway is closed to the public in the evening, and you will enjoy a level of privacy, safety and quiet that is hard to find elsewhere.
The TV in the living area will let you see what’s going on in the world with hundreds of channels in many languages and CNN and BBC in English. But remember, you didn’t come to Paris to care about what’s going on in the world. So set it to some digital radio instead and sip some wine and nibble some fromage; now that’s much better !
