Le Grand Ciel is a studio apartment with a separate kitchen, completely renovated to provide a stylish and relaxing retreat in this most convenient part of Paris. The apartment has been professionally remodeled to provide a fantastic feeling of spaciousness which makes the most of the three large traditional windows -- one in each room to create a very sunny aspect and provide great views of the neighborhood. This light and bright ambiance has been further enhanced by contemporary decor where teals and turquoises contrast with crisp cool white. A solid oak parquet floor, warm underfoot, is the perfect compliment to the modern and comfortable design. Located on the third floor of this Haussmannian building, set on a quiet street just steps from from a Métro station, this is the perfect spot for a sightseeing trip to the City of Light.

On entering the apartment you may hang your coat in the entrance hall and continue into the luminous kitchen and dining nook. The owners of this apartment are keen cooks and this is reflected in the well-appointed kitchen. Cook up a culinary wonder with produce from the local open-air markets (Richard Lenoir) and dine at the stone-topped bistro table overlooking the street below. Also in the same room is a large laundry cupboard with a washer/dryer, plus everything for your laundry needs so, if you wish, you can travel a little lighter!

Beyond the kitchen, through the sliding door which disappears into the wall, is a spacious modern bathroom complete with large walk-in shower, floating toilet and contemporary wash-basin. A tiled floor and natural stone mosaic detailing add to the up-to-the-minute design. Luxuriously fluffy towels hang on the heated towel rail with plenty of spares under the teak vanity shelf. With an overhead light, mirror light and large frosted glass window, you can use this bright space to ensure you look your best when you hit the town. There is also ample storage provided for your own toiletries.

Back through the kitchen and through the glass paneled door is the main living space of the apartment. A king-sized bed with luxury bed linen and plenty of pillows ensure you will have a comfortable night. The bed can be converted into two twin beds if required. Storage is provided for your clothing in the French style armoire and there is room for your suitcases on top. The desk has space for your laptop and papers, and can be closed when you have finished working. The entertainment center is provided in the large shelving unit which houses a flat-screen television, CD and DVD players and a selection of books and games. Close the sleek velvet curtains and this stylish apartment becomes the perfect cozy sanctuary.

Everything you could possibly need has been included in this well thought-out apartment. The three separate rooms give a feeling of space and even allow for time away from your fellow traveler if necessary! The apartment building itself is of the typical Haussmannian style of architecture that makes Paris so beautiful. The communal parts of the building have recently been refurbished and the external digicode and internal security door make this apartment very safe and secure.

You will love spending your relaxing time here overlooking the architecture of Paris as well as the convenient location that takes you to any part of Paris in minutes.

Guest Comments

We had a wonderful 40th wedding anniversary celebration during our nine days in Paris. We enjoyed coming home each evening to our apartment and the ease of preparing breakfasts and dinners there. It was cozy, clean and comfortable. Our Concierge who met us there for the orientation was very helpful and pleasant.

We had a wonderful stay in Paris at Le Grand Ciel. The apartment was exactly as advertised: very comfortable, with lovely linens and towels, well-equipped little kitchen, and a very nice roomy bathroom. The apartment was in a great location, just steps from the Métro and a nice walk to so many things a visitor would want to see in Paris. Many nice cafes were in easy walking distance: we especially loved Chez Imogene! There are boulangeries and little markets all over, so you can easily provision yourself with whatever you need. It really was perfect for us. It was our first visit to Paris and really, it couldn't have been better.

We had a wonderful time in Paris staying at the apartment. It was perfect in every way. The neighborhood is in a very convenient location -- Métro across the street -- everything is literally close by. The apartment was furnished with every amenity. Our next trip to Paris will definitely be at an Adrian Leeds property. The apartment had every single thing we could possibly need. Merci, for making our stay such a pleasant one.

We want to let you know how much we enjoyed the apartment! Wonderful accommodations, well equipped and a great location for us.

Everyone at Parler Paris Apartments was helpful, this was so easy to book and so much better than staying in a hotel. I cannot think of anything that needed to be done differently to enhance our experience. I will definitely recommend Parler Paris Apartments to anyone traveling to Paris and looking for a real Parisian experience. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our trip to Paris and a big part of that was our accommodations at Le Grand Ciel. It was in the perfect location, steps from the Métro, great restaurants, patisseries, and sights of Paris. The apartment itself was clean and modern, but still having that old European charm. Was pleasantly surprised with the cooking equipment available and was able to cook a wonderful dinner one night.

Cyndi G., Chicago, IL

This was our first time in Paris and it was great! Le Grand Ciel was exactly as shown in the photos. It was great to be able to relax and have some meals in our own apartment. The local outdoor market was just around the corner twice during the week and we shopped there for fresh produce, cheese and meats. It was a nice surprise to find that there were a lot of books on Paris and maps of the various attractions in our apartment. We used them to help plan our days. We were only a minute's walk from the Métro so getting around town was incredibly easy. We also enjoyed being outside of the more touristy areas and getting a better idea of real life in Paris. We would definitely use Parler Paris again if all the apartments are like this one.
