================================

Bonjour French Property Insider Subscriber,

There is a tremendous feeling of satisfaction when we see someone begin at the beginning, trek through the trials and tribulations of the process, only to land not only on their feet, but in a bed of roses.

Such is the case with one of our conference participants who sat at attention through every session last September in Washington, DC at the Living and Investing in France Conference. Not long after saying our “goodbyes,” he contacted John Howell and Co. in London who assisted him in setting up the structure for a purchase of an apartment in Paris, and through all legal aspects, then came to see us to begin the search.

His goal was to find something special that would be an excellent rental investment in the heart of Paris. The first day of visits, he had a “coup de coeur” over an apartment on one of Paris’ oldest streets — rue Quincampoix — just steps from the Centre Georges Pompidou. Being a pedestrian street, it was quiet and unaffected by the hoards just meters away.

The building was stunningly 17th-century manor house and the apartment, redesigned by an architect, had everything one could dream of…two bedrooms, two baths, fireplace, high ceilings, elegant contemporary kitchen and baths, walk-through all-wood “dressing” room, large windows with a lovely view. The two-flight winding staircase charmingly slants to one side so that if you weren’t aware, you might think you were drunk! It oozes charm from beginning to end.

The buyer went through a tumultuous negotiation process, but determined to own the apartment, he exhibited plenty of patience and stamina, never waivering from his goal. Just a few weeks ago, the apartment became his.

The rest of the story lies within this issue…with lots of fabulous photos, taken by the rental agency thrilled to have it on their roster. You will be impressed with what the new owner was able to accomplish in so little time to turn it into a reality — the kind we all dream about. Don’t miss it — it’s the first article.

Tomorrow I am heading by rental car (I consistently find Auto-Europe to have the best rates) with friends for an exploratory Easter weekend in the region of Brittany…so, next week you can expect an in-depth look at “La France Profonde” and some of the exciting properties you might find in the departments of Finistere, Morbihan, Cotes D’Armor and Ile et Vilaine.

I’ll also let you know how the Britanny oysters taste when I return next Thursday…

A bientôt…and Happy Easter!

Setting up Home on Rue Quincampoix
By Adrian Leeds

Just a few steps off Place Georges Pompidou, one of Paris’ busiest spots, lies one of t

he oldest streets in Paris, rue Quincampoix. Once home to the financial district in Paris, Eugène Atget photographed it in 1908, dark, crumbling, void of life.

Not long ago, an attendee of the Living in France Conference held in Washington, DC last fall, came to Paris to seek his “coup de coeur”(love at first sight) and immediately fell in love with a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment at the southern end of this narrow pedestrian street in a 17th-century “hôtel particulier.” An architect had renovated it to a clean and contemporary style.

We could see the wheels turning in the mind of our conference graduate. While the French administration was churning its wheels to deed the apartment over to him, he was busy organizing the new furnishings and decor.

Two-bedroom, two-bath apartments are difficult to find in central Paris and when decorated in good taste, luxuriously, afford the finest rental returns. An added sleeping space, allowing for up to six in the apartment, enhances the rentability even further. The owner’s idea was to add a “Murphy” bed on a wall in the living room to accomplish this unobtrusively.

Rental agents were clamoring for the opportunity to represent this apartment. The owner interviewed a few before signing a contract with “Time and Place,” well known for top-of-the-line quality short-term rental apartments.

Many new absentee apartment owners are frightened by the daunting job of renovating and decorating a Paris apartment or French country home from afar. This new owner had no such fear, using his good judgment to hire a firm in which he could trust to carry out his plans. He chose a firm specializing in “lits escamotables,” woodworking and dressing rooms — “Cesam.”

While Cesam was busy constructing the built-in wall units, the new owner planned to have complete furnishings shipped from the U.S. to be delivered during his two-week stay in the city.

I’ve never before been so impressed with someone’s ability to organize and administrate…not to mention impeccable taste. Within ten days of his stay, he turned a vacuous contemporary space into a sumptuous and elegant abode that anyone would be honored to stay in.

Dining in the Dark on Rue Quincampoix
By Harriet Welty-Rochefort

One of the many things I love about Paris is that along with all the traditional monuments and places to go (Napoleon’s Tomb, the Louvre, the Catacombs) there are always new things to do and discover.

Take a recent dinner we had at a newly opened restaurant in Les Halles called Dans Le Noir?. It had to be one of the most unusual and certainly memorable experiences I’ve had in Paris for a long time.

I’d read about this restaurant in a couple of papers and decided to reserve for my birthday. We could have celebrated in a three-star but I was up for something out of the ordinary.

And did we get it!

Before entering the restaurant which is on the rue Quincampoix in Les Halles, we circled the block and checked out the facade. The building is painted white but the windows, instead of highlighting happy chattering diners inside, were entirely blacked out, an omen of what was to come.

Fortunately, inside the foyer, the lights were bright, drinks were flowing, and we did indeed find our soon to be chattering fellow diners. We ordered our drinks and descended to the downstairs lounge where a group of people, presumably the staff, were eating. Nothing unusual in that, except that when one of them got up to leave the table, she stumbled slightly before getting her bearings and continuing on her way. She, like the rest of the wait staff, was totally blind.

Per instructions, after our drink, we made our way back upstairs and were surprised to see how many people had arrived. We put our coats and personal affairs, including glasses (we wouldn’t be needing them) in lockers on the right side of the room, placed our order (we started with terrine, thinking it would be the easiest to eat in the dark and besides, if we couldn’t manage it with a knife and fork we could always just tear off pieces and stuff it into our mouths), and waited to be called.

“Harriet?” the waiter asked. He instructed us to line up Indian file with the other guests at our table. Celine, our blind waitress, appeared from behind a black curtain to reassure us and to tell us she would be taking care of us for the evening. All we had to do was follow her and hang on to each other.

I put my hand on my husband’s shoulders and a rather nervous looking young fellow who had come with his beautiful if somewhat reserved girlfriend put his hands on my shoulders and thus attached to each other, we filed into a room which was not just dark, but pitch black. We are used to being in the dark with little lights on, light filtering through the shutters or the hour of the radio. In this room, there was absolutely no light at all. (One good thing about it was that no one could smoke!)

It’s very strange to be dependent on someone else but we had to be to get to our table and be seated. Once Celine had escorted me safely to my chair, I felt the knife and fork, touched the water and wine glasses, and just to make sure he was in front of me, reached across the table to locate my husband’s face. Satisfied it was HIS face, I started to relax, although I kept waiting for someone to turn the lights on – and it wasn’t going to happen.

================================ Rapidly, the sound level increased measurably. It was as if, having lost our vision, we we

re all compensating by talking loudly. So loudly that several times during the evening there would be a loud “Shhh”. We never knew if it came from a table of guests or if it was the staff.

We hadn’t come to this restaurant for the eating experience, figuring that food would probably be a secondary concern. We were wrong: the terrine, followed by a perfectly cooked sea bream with a Basque piperade (a sweet tasting vegetable assembly of bell peppers and tomatoes, onion and garlic), and the fondant au chocolat were delicious.

My husband admitted he had eaten the terrine with his hands. I proudly stated that I had eaten my entire meal with knife and fork. However, when my napkin slipped off my lap, I let it be and didn’t search for it. Which was too bad because I had slightly missed my mouth with the chocolate dessert. Too bad. I decided to leave my chocolate cheeks and not worry about it. I mean, who was going to see me?

I noticed that one’s priorities are important: my husband managed to pour the wine admirably, following Celine’s advice that we put our fingers in the glass to ascertain the level.

During the meal, we conversed mainly with a gay couple on our left (near the wall, apparently). On our right was a young couple who seemed to be immersed in their own conversation. Strangely enough, at one point, I didn’t hear them any longer, not that I’d heard all that much from them before, and became convinced they were no longer there. But how to know? I decided I’d pat the back of the chair and if I ran into a shoulder or back, would apologize. I didn’t need to. The chair was totally empty and my hunch had been right. How they left I’ll never know for it is impossible to leave without the help of staff. Talk about discreet!

One bottle of wine and much conversation later, we were told that the dinner was over and we would be led back to the light. We emerged, squinting. My husband told the gay couple he had mixed them up. Having caught a glimpse of them before entering the dark, he thought the whole evening long he was talking to the bald Chinese guy when in fact it was the French guy with a nice head of hair. Speaking of hair, the French guy told me he thought my reddish-toned hair was much darker. “Is that your natural color?” he asked. (I told him I couldn’t even remember what its natural color was!) And, after casting a look at my distinguished looking husband who is surely the age of his own father, he apologized to him for some rather risqué comments he said he never would have made in the light!

We all agreed that we had just undergone one of the most incredibly unusual experiences of our lives. Have you ever closed your eyes for a minute or two and tried to imagine what it is to be blind? Imagine doing this for a full two hours. There’s no way it won’t awaken you to what it is like to be in the dark forever, with no lights ever turning on. And it leaves you astounded at how blind people maneuver – how, we wondered, did the blind staff manage to go back and forth to the kitchen and never drop a plate?

The “Dans Le Noir” restaurant also has happy hours, a philosophical café (imagine talking philosophy in the dark), and drinks from 11:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. Judging from its popularity, Dans Le Noir is here to stay.

Restaurant Dans-le-Noir, 51 rue Quincampoix, 01 42 77 98 04

Paris Leads Olympic Bid
http://www.chinaview.cn
2005-03-22

BEIJING, March.22 — Paris remains the favorite to host the 2012 Olympics, Ken Livingstone, the mayor of rival bidders London, said on Monday.

He also stressed that London has closed the gap on Paris and is still in the race since “no city is close to a majority on the first ballot”.

British bookmakers William Hill have Paris as 4/7 favorite despite the strikes which disrupted the transport network during this month’s IOC inspection visit.

London’s bid, which endured bad publicity during the inspectors visit last month when Livingstone likened a Jewish reporter to a Nazi concentration camp guard, is 11/8 second favorite.

New York, which has problems over securing its main stadium, is at 10/1.

Madrid and Moscow are the outsiders at 25/1 and 66/1.

Livingstone predicts that London has 25 votes among IOC members, while Paris has 30 and none of the other three bidding cities have more than 20.

However, if London remains in the race against Paris in the final round, most of the supporters for other cities may give their votes to Paris, instead of London.

At Home, in Paris
Barri Klingaman, Special To The Star Tribune
March 20, 2005


My husband, Steve, and I nestled into a cafe, framed by the glow of amber and rose light that filters through the twisting medieval streets surrounding Place de la Contrescarpe. It was here, in this tiny, offbeat village square — home to edgy artists and eclectic misfits — that my love affair with Paris was sparked as a student in the 1970s. What kismet then that it was where Steve and I slipped out of the rhythms of our current life and into the spirit of Parisian joie de vivre.

We emerged from a cross-table kiss to the clang of a French film crew shooting an episode of a popular detective TV series — and were filmed. I hoped my flats weren’t noticeable.

Even with my practical American shoes, we often passed as loca

ls. And we felt the part, because we were renting an apartment just down the rue.

We’d been to Paris together before and had rushed through as many sights and museums as possible. For this trip, taken to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, we wanted to enjoy the easy familiarity of having coffee in the same place every day and the simple rituals of shopping, cooking and strolling with no timeline — and no guilt for skipping the Louvre.

The truth is, we stole our anniversary travel idea from our 20-something daughter and her beau, who had spent a week in London and then recovered from the soaring costs (and inconveniences) of hostels and eating out by renting an apartment for two weeks in Paris. As we listened to their tales of cake and music at Parc André Citroën, the eccentricities of timing market day at Place d’Aligre, and other adventures, we realized our youthful travelers had experienced Paris as a local would, and had captured things not found in guidebooks.

Armed with a dusty volume of “L’Essential de la Grammaire Française,” Patricia Wells’ cookbooks, and a “Plan de Paris,” I began the hunt for our own pied-à-terre where we could live like Parisians for 10 days.

I was surprised by the abundant apartment rental possibilities in Paris. We booked a chic loft in the 7th Arrondissement — a block off the Seine, near the fabulous Rue Cler Marke and the Eiffel Tower…Click here to r ead more…

Hints to Great Healthcare Coverage

Have quality healthcare isn’t a luxury, it’s an absolute necessity. Most people moving to France are very concerned about having the right healthcare insurance policy. Choosing the right policy can be very confusing, so it’s vital to understand what will or won’t be available before you commit yourself.

Avoiding payment up front is particularly important for expats who don’t want to be left out-of-pocket after their medical treatment. Many hospitals have arrangements with health insurers so that your expenses are settled directly with the hospital.

Healthcare providers vary in the length of time they take to turn around a claim, so make sure you choose a company that has a good reputation for the efficiency of their claims settlement. Be careful to ensure that there are no age restrictions to a policy — some providers may not accept applicants who are over 65 year old.

Most insurers offer varying levels of geographical cover for you to chose from, the scope of which may affect subscription rates. You may wish to check that your insurer can cover you for treatment required if you’re taken ill outside your normal area of residence. At times, the insurer will allow you treatment outside of France with their advance permission — particularly for a specialized situation.

Check the opening hours of customer service helplines and whether they are open at the weekends. Can you get in touch with their emergency evacuation providers around the clock, 365 days a year? When you are away from home, you need to know that any queries or requests you may have about your cover and treatment can be dealt with.

Make sure you understand fully what is not covered under each policy option as all health insurance policies have some exclusions. Your primary consideration in determining which healthcare provider to chose will be ensuring that you are provided with the suitable level of cover. Often there may not be much difference in policy and price between two insurers. However the services and levels of support they offer could differ immensely.
