This is the Paris of kings and princes, of wide, peaceful avenues, of the shady pathways of the Bois de Boulogne and the soaring spokes of the Eiffel Tower. Nineteenth century buildings sport curlicues like so much stone jewellery, and the boutiques are charming and oh-so-discreet. And it’s here that you’ll find the simply elegant Rue Raynouard. This neat apartment has original parquet floors, antique furniture and a boldly modern kitchen. The proportions are perfect, the white walls adorned with an eclectic collection of art, and, while you’re close to the lively Rue de l’Annonciation’s shops and cafes, your home itself is blessedly quiet.
Your hostess has lived in London and Lisbon. Now a proud grandmother of four, she’s happily settled in Paris. But don’t think her old-fashioned, when she’s not sipping a café crème downstairs she’s chatting on Instagram and Facebook.
If you’ve jostled through the Quartier Latin, or stomped your feet sore on the Champs Elysees then you’ll appreciate the sheer calm of this bright, pretty home, its comfortable chairs almost begging you to stop and rest.
The view from the sitting room window is green and lush, and inside, pink tulips sing from the dove grey sofa, and every last stick of antique furniture carries the glow of a treasured heirloom. The family portrait will introduce you to this home’s usual occupants, and you’ll sense their loving kindness in the china and ornaments that adorn the smart, high-spec kitchen, and the sleek ensuite. The bedroom itself is pale and pleasant, with more captivating artwork – your hostess’ taste ranging from a Chinese tapestry to a reproduction Mondrian in colourful stained glass.
Take a turn
Passy was made for strolling, its beautiful boulevards their own reward. The architecture is grand, but with plenty of sweet squares and hidden corners. Picnic in the Bois de Boulogne, enjoy one of Carette's famous pastries with your afternoon coffee, or climb up, up, up the Eiffel Tower. You’re close to the Trocadéro, and to the popular shops, cafes and restaurants of the Rue de l’Annonciation, while the journey from Passy to Châtelet takes a little under half an hour.
