The Bookkeeper's Loft is listed in affiliation with Plum Guide.
Centrally located in an ideal spot for bars, restaurants and the quintessential contemporary Parisian experience, The Bookkeeper's Loft is a quirky and characterful apartment, tastefully decorated with an eclectic combination of art objects, paintings and globally sourced curiosities. Ideal for individual travellers or couples spending time in Europe’s cultural capital, this one bedroom rooftop apartment is a genuinely unique space, which will stay you with long after you depart, and offers the ultimate Paris lifestyle to newcomers to the city and veteran Paris lovers alike.
The apartment itself has to be inhabited in order for its charm and taste to truly be appreciated. Hardwood floors, historic timber beams and mosaic tiling combine to create a genuinely Bohemian decor, which the owners have put together over many years. The main living space has a sloped ceiling, eastern rugs, and a marvellous collection of books, guaranteed to keep bibliophiles entertained indefinitely. There is also a small study, designed and laid out with the same meticulous aesthetic touches which make the entire apartment such a treat to dwell in, and a kitchen with subtle decorative touches and high end amenities.
Although you’re within easy walking distance of some of the finest restaurants cafes, and brasseries in Paris, should you choose to remain in and cook on some evenings, you’ll be delighted by the kitchen, which has been put together with the same care and elegance which transformed this cosy and intimate space into the unique apartment it is. The single bedroom is tucked into the eaves of the roof, with a sloping ceiling and window which looks out over the rooftops of Paris, and benefits from the same unusual patterns and designs that are found throughout the rest of the space.
Located in the historic and atmospheric Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood, you won’t feel cut off from the buzz of this romantic and storied city. The surrounding streets are dotted with old intellectual hangouts, where the ‘lost generation’ wrote their novels, and Paris’ foremost philosophers and thinkers congregate in the bars and cafes.
As well as the close proximity to Luxemboug Gardens, a park beloved by locals and tourists alike, you have Mabillion and the Odéon, both packed with fantastic bars and chic, intimate eateries. Dine at the legendary Lapérouse restaurant, a favourite of visionary writer Victor Hugo or stop by Le Procope to eat at the tables favoured by Voltaire and Rousseau, before visiting the Delacroix’s former house, gardens and studio, now a fantastic museum dedicated to the artist’s life and work. Whether you’re into architecture or history, nightlife or green spaces, art galleries or fine cuisine, this is the perfect neighbourhood for you.
