The Cornas – A Quiet Stay Near the Best Museums in Paris


1-bedroom rental apartment in Paris near Musée d'Orsay

Let us introduce you to the Cornas, a lovely new one bedroom apartment located in the 7th arrondissement very near the Seine. It’s tucked away on a quiet street, near a small garden in front of a beautiful Gothic Revival church. In fact, you’ll enjoy stunning views of the church from the apartment! You would never know that just a few streets away are the best museums in Paris.

The living room is lined with built-in bookshelves and an antique marble fireplace mantle. It adds so much charm and elegance to the sitting area. The furniture is finished in shades of white or cream with black patterning. The mix of plaid, stripes and toile makes the space feel comfortable, with a slight nod to the countryside.

The Cornas has one bedroom, but the living room has this charming daybed, pictured below, that can accommodate a third guest. This would be very convenient for a couple, a small group of friends or a small family!

The bedroom is decorated with classy wainscoting and subtly patterned wallpaper, and outfitted with a double bed. The bedroom window looks directly out into the quiet street below, with wonderful views of the Gothic style architecture on the other side. You will be able to admire the pointed windows and flying buttresses from a better viewing angle than from street level. Speaking of levels, this apartment is located on the 4th floor in a building with an elevator for a comfortable stay.


You can get up-close and personal with the beautiful church across the road. Fun fact: this is the only Gothic Revival style church in Paris. It was constructed from 1846-1857 when Revivalism was all the rage. However, the Gothic Revival style never really took on in France, largely due to the fact that attention was rightly placed on restoring the city’s incredible Gothic masterpieces like Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle. So this gorgeous church is a unique piece of architectural history in the City of Light!


The crisp, white bathroom is equipped with a pedestal sink, toilet, bidet and shower. The large window lets in lots of light, which will help you feel vibrant and awake each morning. Here’s a bonus – the shower boasts a huge rainforest-style head to make your shower time extra special and spa-like.

The kitchen is oh-so Parisian! It is bright and fully equipped with all the utensils and appliances you’ll need to prepare stellar meals and snacks. Enjoy living like a Parisian, shopping at local open-air markets and enjoying the amazingly fresh produce and French specialties in the comfort of your apartment setting. One of the best parts of traveling is learning the lifestyles of cultures different than your own. And there so much to savor while you’re in Paris!

We just adore the location of the Cornas as it is within walking-distance of five major sites of Paris! For starters, it’s a 5-minute walk away from the romantic Musée Rodin and the impressive Dôme des Invalides, where the tomb of Napoleon lies. It’s also close to the Musée d’Orsay, just a 10-minute walk away! Additionally, just across the river, you’ll find the expansive Tuileries gardens, topped by the sprawling Louvre museum, which will take you a mere 18 minutes to walk to. Being so close to these attractions will make it so easy to check things off your itinerary, and not having to depend solely on public transportation is so convenient!
