WHERE WE STAY IN PARIS — APARTMENTS & LOCATIONS

 

 

Home At First apartment in the 7th Arrondissement on the Left Bank of Paris. The traditional décor of the living room
and the study stand in contrast with the ultra-modern kitchen. Although the nearest Métro station is only yards
away from the front door, you can easily walk from the apartment to the two most important art
museums in Paris: The Louvre (12 minutes), and the Musée d'Orsay (8 minutes).

HOME AT FIRST PARIS LODGINGS:
        
HOME AT FIRST offers vacation apartments in locations across central Paris. Although each is unique, all must meet our quality standards for Parisian ambience, ease and security of entry, cleanliness and care, being well-equipped, and caring, English-speaking hosting.

AMBIENCE: Our Paris apartments are homey, comfortable, quality lodgings. Each is unique. Some, as above, are traditionally decorated and furnished. Others are modern. Some are eclectic. A prized few apartments come with private balconies or furnished terraces for outdoor sitting. Many apartments feature fine-but-limited window views over the rooftops of Paris.

FLOORS & ENTRIES: Although reaching some of our apartments requires climbing a flight or two of stairs, most upper-floor apartments (3rd floor and up) are reached by elevator. All are well-located, safe, and very livable. Building and apartment entries are secure.

CARE AND CLEANLINESS. The apartments have been thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival, but are not maid-serviced during your stay. They are normally equipped with laundry machines. Apartments are non-smoking and do

not permit pets. Basic starter kitchen and bathroom supplies are provided.

WELL-EQUIPPED: As with apartments at any HOME AT FIRST destination, most of our Paris apartments have, as a minimum, bedrooms, private bathrooms, living and dining areas/rooms, and well-equipped kitchens. Some multiple-bedroom apartments come with multiple bathrooms, often en suite with the bedrooms. Some few studio apartments have open-plan living-dining-sleeping space and/or kitchenettes without ovens. Bed and bath linens and a hair-dryer are provided. Flat-screen cable TV, WiFi, and telephone with free dialing to North America are found in most of our apartments.

HOSTING: Importantly, all our Paris apartments come with the welcoming, enthusiastic attention of your landlord/hosts, who are committed to making your stay in their accommodation delightful and problem-free. Your English-speaking landlord/host meets you upon your apartment arrival and introduces you to your apartment and its operation. Your landlord/ host is available throughout your stay for any questions, problems, emergencies, and to advise you when you wish to organize activities (e.g. wine tasting, French cooking lessons, guided

 

touring, etc.).

 

 

APARTMENT LOCATIONS:
          HOME AT FIRST offers vacation apartments of various sizes (studios, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartment) and capacities (sleeping & feeding up to 6 persons) throughout central Paris in safe, prosperous neighborhoods on both sides of the River Seine. Wherever located, our accommodations are near transportation, stores, restaurants, services, and activities.

ARRONDISSEMENTS: Our Paris apartments are found on both the Left Bank and the Right Bank in many of the 20 arrondissements

NEIGHBORHOODS & DISTRICTS: Our Paris apartments are located in safe, prosperous neighborhoods within short walking distance to Métro, bus, and, sometimes, RER stations. They are well-situated as bases from which to explore Paris (PARIS APARTMENT LOCATIONS MAP).
          Because of their centrality, each of our apartments is likely near at least one noted Parisian landmark. A variety of shops, cafés, restaurants, and other services are close by, too, making it easy and convenient to shop and eat locally.
          Central Paris is densely populated, known for traffic jams, long lines at attractions such as the Louvre, and

 

throngs of visitors competing for tables

at sidewalk cafés and restaurants. Your Paris apartment can be a refuge from the noise and bustle of the city, with much more space than a hotel room and a made-to-order kitchen with a table waiting.
