Le Luxe d’Argent is a chic and modern one-bedroom apartment with plenty of old world charm. After a complete renovation in the spring of 2012, this jewel is ready to welcome you and your family and friends for a stay that you won’t soon forget.

The cool and sleek silver color scheme chosen by designer extraordinaire, Martine di Mattéo, has a real calming effect while the intelligent layout makes living there a pleasure.

The bedroom features a comfortable queen-size bed that can be made up as twins, and wrap-around closets for optimum use of space. Being situated on a small interior courette makes it ideal for a good night’s sleep.

Immediately adjacent to the bedroom is the contemporary bathroom where you will find double sinks, heated towel rack and a spacious glassed-in shower. It is also accessible directly from the primary rooms of the apartment. Like smart Paris apartments, a beautifully appointed powder room is separate and accessible from the entry hall.

The complete and functional kitchen has been equipped with a granite countertop and custom hand-made oak cabinetry which houses a dishwasher, microwave, conventional oven, four burner stove and refrigerator with freezer. There is also a Nespresso machine and toaster provided for your use. Dishes, glasses, cutlery, and cooking implements round out the inventory.

Within easy reach is the Corbusier-style glass and chrome dining table with four leather chairs. Here you can enjoy the gourmet meal that you created or just plan your day over coffee and croissants.

With its two large windows, the living room is bright and welcoming. Under a one-of-a-kind, Eiffel Tour themed painting by French artist, Pascal Amblard, sits the elegant sofa bed that transforms into a queen-size bed when needed. From here the 59-inch, flush-mounted flat-screen TV looms large for enjoyable viewing. Glass and chrome end and coffee tables to compliment a stylish chair complete this conversation, relaxing and entertaining space perfectly.

When not out enjoying the beautiful city, your entertainment needs are met with access to over 100 cable TV channels, several of which are in English. You can also make good use of the Bose iPod docking system and DVD player. Included with your stay is free access to the apartment’s WiFi connection as well as use of the telephone, which allows you to call land lines in over 100 countries as well as land lines and cell phones in the U.S. and Canada, at no cost.

Next to the powder room, in the entrance hallway is the laundry closet, with combination washer/dryer and portable drying rack. The apartment lacks nothing and as an added bonus, stay close to family and friends by renting Le Bien Illuminé, which is in the building next door! How convenient is that?

Guest Comments

We stayed in this wonderfully appointed apartment for our first visit to Paris. We had the perfect week. The location is great, health food stores, shopping, bakeries and restaurants all within walking distance. We walked to different restaurants, where we enjoyed drinks and meals outside like Parisians. A taxi stand and the Métro are both located within minutes from the apartment. We used the Métro to return to the airport, which was easy and cheap! This apartment is true to the pics and description. In fact, we are planning to rent this apartment for our return visit to Paris.

We stayed in the apartment for five days. The only thing we can say: it's great! The interior is excellent. It has everything you need. We (family of four) enjoyed it very much. Just around the corner you find a bakery, a supermarket and restaurants. Within three minutes you are in the Métro. We came back once in the afternoon for a break and watched a movie on the big screen - the kids loved it. We are definitely planning to come back!

The apartment is very comfortable and is equipped with all of the necessities to a traveler. Well designed by maximizing all of the space, the apartment still retains the charm of the original construction. Located on a very quiet street at the north end of the 3rd Arrondissement. Very close to the Métro, restaurants and stores. We walked to La Seine in 20 minutes (1.5 km). The scenic Canal St. Martin is only 800 m to the north. The concierge who met us was very accommodating and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I stayed at Le Luxe d'Argent apartment, TWICE! I guess we must have loved it? We certainly did. Very clean, modern and comfortable. There were already several great choices for restaurants in the area, but with the development of La Jeune Rue which is very close, more interesting shops and eateries have opened since our last stay. (Google it)! There is a fine boulangerie less than a block away and also a well-stocked grocery store. The apartment is very close to the Métro and it is in easy walking distance to many of the greatest sites of Paris. We loved the tall and oh so Parisian windows and the nice view of this quiet street. The bathroom is very clean, modern and functional as is the kitchen area. The management team is excellent as well. They are professionals and ensured we were well situated upon arrival and totally satisfied during our stay. Loved it!

My husband and I, along with our two children stayed here for four nights. The apartment was perfect for our family. It met my high standards for cleanliness and was also very well-appointed. There was a representative who met us there, as planned, when we arrived. She gave us a very brief and friendly overview of the place and how things operated. We loved that there was a bakery and a grocery store about 100 feet away. Every morning, my six year old and I would go get fresh baguettes and croissants--a highlight of our trip! My husband also made an evening trip to the store "next door" when we ran out of wine one evening. Don't miss the Marche des Enfants Rouge, which is only a few blocks away--need I say more? There are a few different Metro stops close to the apartment-making it so convenient to get anywhere. We cooked almost every evening (worked for us with two small children), the kitchen had everything I needed (and I am a snob when it comes to a kitchen). Thank You! We'll be back soon! I would highly recommend this gem to anyone!

Regarding the apartment, our expectations were more than fulfilled. When we arrived a bit late due to traffic jam, we were met by a nice person. The apartment was well equipped and all items worked. The location was good; near to a small grocer's, a bakery and good bistros. Both Métro and bus stop were within a short walk, and sites like Les Halles, Notre Dame etc. could be reached by walking.

We rented three apartments from VRBO on this trip but yours was the top of the list. It exceeded our expectations. Great location, we did a lot of walking. Close to Métro stop, restaurants, bakery, grocery, all round convenient. The apartment is well furnished and had everything we needed, excellent towels and linens.

We had a wonderful time staying at this apartment. The decor is warm and yet modern, the apartment is clean, and had the necessary accessories one might want/need including a coffee machine, a dishwasher, oven, washer/dryer and more. The location was quiet and accessible to several local good eateries as well as being conveniently located to many Paris landmarks. The Parler Paris Apartments staff was extremely helpful prior to our trip in regard to any questions/concerns we had. I would recommend this property and look forward to the possibility of staying here again one day.

We were very kindly received by your very professional representative who even helped us to bring our luggage up three flights of stairs. The apartment was a comfortable size, very nicely appointed and well equipped with good quality fittings. We especially liked the bathroom and shower stall. The kitchen was fully equipped and the washing machine allowed us to leave as fresh as we arrived! We generally stay in top quality hotels but the choice of an apartment from you was much more flexible and like having our own place in Paris.

We enjoyed our stay so much at the apartment in Paris that we did not want to leave. It was everything as described and pictured. We would certainly return and recommend it to friends and family. Thank you again.

Alan H., Palm Springs, CA

Our stay at Le Luxe d'Argent exceeded our expectations in every way. The apartment was comfortable, well appointed, and very stylish. There were staples in the fridge and cupboards that were very handy to have on hand, and we found that so helpful, thank you for that! The neighborhood was charming and ideally located. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, and are looking forward to our return to Paris. Thank you so much for making our stay so pleasant. I will most definitely recommend Parle Paris Apartments.

I wanted to let you know that the apartment we rented through Adrian Leeds Group and the rental experience itself were both, in a word, delightful. The Luxe d'Argent apartment was perfect for us and we loved the location on Rue Volta in the Marais. Not far from our door were a number of wonderful restaurants and shops. We were a short walk to many of the wonderful sites in Paris, yet our street was very quiet. The layout was great and the apartment was well appointed and extremely clean and comfortable. It was clearly recently renovated. It had everything we needed to make for a terrific vacation The service and ease of doing business with you and your team was outstanding. You communicated with us every step of the way and helped us through our trip planning with advice and council. Your Concierge met us at the apartment and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. She demonstrated all the features of the apartment including the free international calling, the high speed Internet access, the flat screen television, satellite and DVD usage. She offered assistance with anything we may need to make our vacation wonderful. Thank you again for a great experience and apartment. We clearly recommend this apartment and your firm to anyone who wishes to experience Paris as Parisians do!
