Paris in July 2019 - Un Appartement sous le Toit
During our visit to Paris in the summer of 2014 we stayed in an apartment in Rue Molière just off Avenue de l'Opéra. It was a typical old building where you first had to go into an inner courtyard before entering the house.
Our apartment was right beneath the roof which meant climbing stairs - many stairs. You're asking for an elevator? Are you kidding?
But once we reached our apartment we entered a charming little realm.
The couple from whom we rented this apartment lives here in the "slow" season, but during the busy late spring, summer and early fall they are living on a boat on the Seine. They were both artists and the apartment was filled with their art.
The entrance was full with book shelves loaded with books and paintings. From here we directly came into the living/dining room.
At the far end of the dining section was a tiny kitchen.
A very steep staircase - more like a ladder - led up to the two sleeping areas.
This is the view from the top of the ladder. It was wise to be very careful and not just half awake.
The "door" to the bathroom (off the living room) ...
... and - tada - the bathroom!
Even though we were living in the middle of Paris it was very quiet. The view out of the windows in the roof wasn't spectacular, but very Paris.
This is my last post for Tamara's Paris in July on her blog Thyme for Tea. It was fun to participate and re-visit all those memories.
