Overlooking the beautiful Place Dauphine, on the Île de la Cité, the Anjou is a lovely two-bedroom vacation rental set on two levels - the first and second floors- of our exclusive La Place Dauphine building, located on one of the most charming squares in Paris. The Anjou main apartment is located on the 2nd floor, accessed via elevator or stairs. There is an internal staircase that leads from the living area to the second bedroom. Because it was built in 1610, at the request of King Henri IV, you'll be surrounded by history during your stay at La Place Dauphine! The building features an elevator, security digital locks and every modern convenience. Wonderful original details have been preserved, such as the incredible beams from 1610 that are a highlight of the Anjou apartment. On the second floor, you'll find a modern kitchen, living room, a sumptuous bed in the bedroom, en suite bathroom and additional half bath. Downstairs on the first floor, there is bedroom 2 with two beds that can be zipped together to form one bed and a full bathroom. Enjoy cooking at home in the finely finished kitchen, and dine overlooking the romantic Place Dauphine.

Step outside and you'll immediately understand why Place Dauphine is one of the most coveted spots in Paris. Lined with buildings from the early 1600s, the square is full of trees and dotted with benches that are the perfect spots to sit and take in the historic setting. A popular spot with locals for games of pétanque, you'll even hear the click of steel balls used in this traditional French game. Surrounding Place Dauphine are excellent cafés and restaurants that are popular with lawyers working at the nearby Palais de Justice, which means the quality is excellent! Staying on the Île de la Cité right in the heart of Paris - "Kilometer Zero" as it is called - means you're surrounded by all the best sights, museums, shopping spots and top neighborhoods to explore while in Paris. You can walk to all of them! Also located on the Île de la Cité are the Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sainte-Chapelle, with its gorgeous stained glass windows. Cross over to the Right Bank, on the Pont Neuf, to visit the Louvre or explore the Tuileries Garden. Stroll along the Seine on the Left Bank to the Musée d'Orsay or explore stylish Saint Germain and meander through the cobblestone streets in the Latin Quarter. Discover the beauty, romance and history of Paris at the Anjou apartment at La Place Dauphine!

Please note: The doorway to the bedroom 1 has the original 1610 wood beams along the top (between 5'10" and 6'1" in height). If you're 6' or taller, you'll need to watch your head when passing through. Although once inside the rooms, the ceiling height is a comfortable 6'7"(200cm) high.
