Rue d'Arcole Next to Notre Dame, 4th Arrondissement, Ile de la Cité, Two-Bedroom, Two-Bath, Sleeps up to 4
As seen on House Hunters International! -- "Vacation Home in Paris"
The world’s most famous church, La Cathédral Notre Dame de Paris, is the spiritual and geographical center of Paris. There is a marker in the square in front of the Cathedral that designates “kilometer zero” from which all distances to and from Paris, are measured. La Belle Notre Dame is 100 meters from this spot, so where better to immerse yourself in the splendor of Paris than in the very heart of the city where life began!?
Under the direction of our talented designer, Martine di Matteo, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has been transformed into a masterpiece of style and comfort. On the third floor with elevator, this luxury apartment will make your stay in Paris absolutely perfect.
From the entrance, you will immediately be struck by the apartment's bold and beautiful color scheme of blacks, whites, pinks and chartreuse's. Elegant silk draperies, high quality upholstery and several unique features make this apartment one-of-a-kind. To add to the artistic touch is an array of extensive custom mosaic tile work done by "mosaiiste," Veronique Husson, who contributed her beautiful handiwork in other of our finest Parler Paris Apartments.
The first bedroom on the right as you enter boasts of this beautiful tile-work at the head of the queen-size bed (which can be made up as two separate twins), with the roman numerals MCLXIII, representing the year that the cornerstone of the Cathedral was laid (1163). The twin of this work of art can be found in the glassed-in shower in the apartment’s en suite bath, which includes a sink and heated towel rack. This bedroom has shelves and hanging space on each side of the bed, as well as a comfortable chair. The window overlooks a quiet courtyard.
The second bedroom on the left as you enter is similarly enhanced, with a whimsical painting of the Cathedral itself, an original work by artist Pascal Amblard, done specifically for the apartment. One entire wall of this bedroom is devoted to mirrored closets for plenty of storage. The bed can be made up as separate twins.
Just outside this bedroom is the separate toilet with sink. Next to that is the second luxurious bath, with a large tub/shower combination, a heated towel rack, as well as a combined washer/dryer and lots of storage space.
The living room area of the apartment includes a plush three-seater sofa and armchair, a typical Parisian fireplace (ornamental) with large mirror. For those that need to catch up on some work or just check a few emails, there is a desk that is part of a built-in wall unit, which adds to the great amount of storage space in the apartment.
The open, angled kitchen is very well equipped, with full-sized oven, a two burner vitro ceramic stove-top, built-in microwave, fridge and freezer and dishwasher. Of course, the kitchen is completely furnished with all pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils that you will need.
The four-person dining room table sits conveniently next to the open kitchen over it hangs a stunning glass framed chandelier -- a special feature that symbolizes the mix of contemporary and old-world style.
A large flat screen TV with DVD Blu-ray player is mounted on the wall and is visible from throughout the central area of the apartment. There are over one hundred channels available, several of them in English.
Included is high speed wireless Internet and unlimited free phone calls to over 100 countries, including cell phones in the U.S. and Canada.
As with all of our apartments, all bedding and an ample supply of towels are provided.

La Belle Notre Dame was everything my party (two couples) hoped for and more! The apartment was very nicely appointed and served our purposes so well. I was a little concerned when I realized its close proximity to Notre Dame because the plaza is very busy during the day. However, once we got up to the cozy apartment, it was completely quiet! What a wonderful combination! Directly in the center of the city with an easy walk across the bridges on either side of the island to be in a whole different area. There are SO many wonderful restaurants and we especially LOVED Au Boungnat just around the corner. It was so easy to catch a taxi or bus or train to anywhere we wanted to go. The weather was unfortunately chilly and rainy but it felt so good at the end of a busy day to come back to the warmth of the apartment to put our feet up, enjoy a glass of wine, and discuss the day before having a wonderful night's sleep in the very comfortable beds. Thank yous to your Rental Administrator, Concierge, and everyone for being so accommodating in many ways. I look forward to our next visit and recommend Adrian Leeds and La Belle Notre Dame unconditionally!

Great stay. Would definitely come back.

It was really easy to book via the internet. he reservation instructions are simple and easy. A nice Concierge welcomed us to the apartment. he apartment is very well decorated, in a nice location where we are able to go anywhere in Paris or outside of Paris. It is close to everything you need. The building is calm. The fact that two large beds were easily divided in single beds is very flexible. The instructions manual is easy and clear. We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment, we would recommend it without any hesitation. We would love to come back to one of Adrian Leeds apartments!!!

My husband and I shared the two-bedroom apartment with friends. he beds were comfortable, the shower/bath had plenty of hot water and the heat in the apartment worked well. Even though this apartment is located in a pretty busy tourist area, we appreciated the convenience of several good café’s and a choice of Métro stops. The apartment was clean and as described in your offer. Dealing with Parler Paris Apartments was very easy for us first time to Paris travelers. We would certainly stay in this apartment again and would highly recommend it to friends. Thank you for being part of our beautiful trip.
Yvette T., Goliad, TX
The apartment is lovely and equipped with more than we could have wished for. Extra comforters, plenty of good pillows, towels, etc. We can all see how much thought was put into the details. The location is ideal. We have never stayed on the 'island' before and the central location makes it easy to get anywhere. I don't think I ever inquired about the apartment being 'quiet', and I am so happy that it is on the inside court so we have no street noise at all. Between that and the black-out drapes, we were able to sleep late every morning...merci!!
Monique E., Mill Valley, CA
Four of us, two couples, stayed at this amazing apartment for four nights! It is exactly as pictured, and is truly exquisite! Location is perfect, we were able to walk to many major attractions. The Métro was close and easy to figure out. The rental agent who met us was wonderful and quickly explained to use of all the appliances, etc. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel like a Parisian in Paris!
Kathleen S., San Jose, CA
The location is fantastic! I was traveling with an 11 and a 3 year-old child -- we could basically walk everywhere. The apartment was clean and well kept. The management responded to requests and problems right away so we are well taken care of. I am looking forward to the next visit!

Location, Location, Location. I can't think of a better location in Paris than La Belle Notre Dame. Within minutes from the Left or Right Bank and with convenient Métro stops to get almost anywhere. In the past, we've rented houses in various parts of France and Italy but always stayed in a hotel in Paris and were so pleased we made the choice to rent this apartment as it gave us an entirely different perspective on life in Paris. We shared the apartment with another couple for two weeks and then with our daughter and son-in-law for a week and found the apartment offered everything we wanted and was comfortable for two couples. It was so convenient to eat a meal out and then have bread, cheese and wine for our dinner in the apartment and later go out and stroll and have a crepe or ice cream for dessert. We loved having a washer and dryer available as well as WiFi. The apartment is charmingly decorated and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Susan C., Westminster, CA
I loved the apartment! It was just as pictured and in the best location. The apartment had everything that we needed and then some. The kitchen was well equipped and even had some of the basic necessities. If you are looking for a “True Parisian Experience,” this is the place! You can hear the bells of the Notre Dame and what a beautiful sound it is -- I will try to rent this apartment again in the future!!!
Michelle S., Fort Wayne IN
We had a wonderful time in this adorable apartment. We were amazed with the location -- it's just next door to the Notre Dame Cathedral -- the location is absolutely fabulous. In the same street, there are plenty of cafés, shops and restaurants. It was delightful to hear the bells of Notre Dame everyday. It's a two-minute walk to "L'Hôtel de Ville," five-minute walk to the Latin Quarter and Saint Michel, 10 minutes to Le Marais...absolutely incredible! Adrian and her team were really GREAT preparing the apartment for our arrival, there was nothing missing, we even found tea and coffee which was a nice surprise. We arrived very late at night and they were waiting for us to let us in and show us everything. Everything was so pristine and well appointed. Thank you all for such an excellent service! We felt better than in a five-star hotel! We felt like we were in our own little piece of Parisian heaven! We'll definitely do it again! THANKS!

My mother and my sister (From Japan) and I decided to meet up in Paris and spend one week together. The apartment was a perfect choice for us since as a group of three, it would have been difficult to get one hotel room that has three beds. La Belle Notre Dame exceeded our expectations. My mother took out her camera as soon as she walked in to take pictures of the place, including the brand new bathrooms, which we took baths in to relax after walking around so much. The washing machine was a plus for my sister as she wanted to do laundry every day. It was a nice surprise for us. I got sick on the plane, so it was just amazing to be able to store juice in the fridge, make coffee/tea whenever we wanted. The best night (and I say this when we were surrounded by amazing restaurants) was when we went out to get groceries and cooked at home. Just like when we were kids and living with my parents, we cooked, talked, and had drinks while we cooked. You can't experience this in a hotel. Every morning, we made a baguette/croissant run to get pastries and made coffee just like Parisians do. We had cheese, butter, yogurt, all the good dairy stuff France is known for. We won't be able to stay at a hotel EVER when we are in Paris the next time.
Hideki S., New York, NY
Our stay at La Belle Notre Dame was an unforgettable experience for my family! Traveling to Europe for the first time with our two young boys, my husband and I did not know what to expect. We arrived at the apartment and instantly felt at home and so did the boys. The apartment was beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable- we had all of the conveniences and amenities of home. We felt safe, secure and surprised that we did not hear noise considering the location near Notre Dame and its many visitors. We enjoyed waking up every morning to the distant bell chimes of the Cathedral and the location of the apartment with its many cafés and restaurants in walking distance. We liked the ability of getting a taxi or a tour bus right out of the door with great ease. We truly LOVED our stay in La Belle of Notre Dame and our visit to Paris will be an experience we will never forget.
