THE ROSE APARTMENT
In a city of bakeries, chocolatiers and markets, a kitchen table of one’s own is essential. What a better place to enjoy an evening aperitif than from you own flower-decked patio, overlooking the Seine?
The rose apartment, a jewel box on Ile Saint Louis, is one of those elegantly appointed spaces that reveals that the true pleasure of life in Paris is staying in a Parisian apartment. Once through the impressive wrought-iron gate and past the charming courtyard, this light-filled apartment with floor-to-ceiling double pane windows exudes luxury.
Begin your day by lingering in the romantic loft bedroom, before popping out to buy freshly baked croissants. Then pour yourself an espresso coffee from your fully equipped kitchen. At night, the lights dancing along the river cast a distinctly Parisian mood, and you can hear the bells of Notre-Dame just minutes away.
Rose apartment is managed by Guest Apartment Services Paris which, for over 20 years, has offered luxury apartments for rent in prime locations. It also provides full concierge and housekeeping services as well as limousine transfers. If you’re not a fan of the quirks associated with privately listed stays, it provides an exceptional alternative.
