Finding apartments in Paris with that perfect combination of style, location and Parisian charm is not always an easy task. When we first stepped in the lovely new one bedroom Cassis vacation rental in the 7th arrondissement, we knew we had found one! The setting is perfect, just off of the charming Rue Saint-Dominique that runs through the 7th between the Champ de Mars gardens around the Eiffel Tower and the Esplanade des Invalides. We love the village-like atmosphere in this neighborhood with all its excellent food shops along the famous Rue Cler market street, top notch restaurants where Parisians dine and loads of fun boutiques to discover. It’s a peaceful and extremely safe neighborhood, and just moments from the Eiffel Tower, Seine and all the top sights in the heart of Paris.
What makes the Cassis such a great find is that it has charm and style on top of its fabulous location! The open plan living room and dining area is well lit due to its location on the 4th floor (5th floor American – the modern building has an elevator, too!) and the large French doors that open out to a charming little balcony overlooking the street below. That’s where you’ll find that last perfect touch – a view of the top of the Eiffel Tower over the characteristic rooftops of Paris! Step out on the little balcony, where there’s room for a chair, and enjoy the street scenes below. There’s nothing quite like seeing the Eiffel Tower from your own vacation rental – it reminds you that you’re in Paris every moment of your stay!
The living room at the Cassis is a comfortable spot for relaxing with a large sofa, overstuffed chair and even comfortable cushioned chairs around the dining table. The sofa also easily converts to two twin beds for extra sleeping space, which means this one bedroom, one bathroom apartment can welcome up to four guests. The Cassis has been beautifully remodeled with antique details and a warm color palatte to help you feel at home from the moment you arrive in Paris.
Just opposite the sofa and near the large French doors is an oak dining table and comfortable chairs. A cut out in the wall looks into the kitchen area where you can easily pass items and prepared dishes back and forth to the kitchen. It also allows for light from the large kitchen window to spill into the living room and dining area. Convenient and sunny!
The bedroom at the Cassis is a welcoming and sunny space. Another set of large French doors opens to a small balcony like the living room where there’s also enough room for a small chair. Sink into the cozy queen size bed at the end of the day and enjoy one of the apartments most charming features – a view of the Eiffel Tower!
The bathroom at the Cassis has been fully remodeled and features a combination bathtub and shower so you can relax with a warm bath after a day of walking and sightseeing or enjoy a nice hot shower. You’ll also find a toilet, above counter sink and plenty of storage space.
The kitchen at the Cassis has also been fully remodeled and features something special when you step inside. The sink faucet cleverly pivots down when you open the window. The Eiffel Tower is right there! Even though there’s a dishwasher in the kitchen you might just find yourself hand washing dishes every now and then with a view like that. Guests love shopping along the Rue Cler market street, which is just a few blocks away from the Cassis. Shop alongside Parisians at the specialty food shops, butchers, fish shops and some of the best cheese shops in Paris. You’ll find everything you need to enjoy a gourmet meal at home at the Cassis!
With charming views of the top of the Eiffel Tower, you’ll love being home at night at the Cassis. Watch as the sun sets over the rooftops of Paris and the lights come on across the city and on the Eiffel Tower. At night the warm glow is such a beautiful sight from the living room, bedroom and kitchen at the Cassis. Not long ago we even caught a sliver of the moon coming up above the buildings across the street. Can you spot it below?
One of the most magical features of the Cassis is the view of the top of the Eiffel Tower from the queen size bed. Enjoy the romance of Paris with a glass of champagne and make a toast to your stay in Paris! You’ll have a comfortable spot to enjoy the magical light show on the Eiffel Tower as thousands of sparkling lights twinkle every hour on the hour.
Where you stay in Paris can transform a holiday into a vacation of a lifetime! The Cassis is a comfortable home away from home right in the heart of the 7th arrondissement just a short stroll from the Eiffel Tower and the Seine River. Enjoy a romantic walk along the Seine at sunset, picnic and relax in the beautiful gardens at Champ de Mars, shop alongside Parisians at local open-air markets and truly savor the best of daily life in Paris with a stay at the Cassis!
