“The Louvre apartment, as the name suggests is a stone’s throw from Paris’ most famous art gallery.” THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY (UK)
In the heart of historical Paris near the Louvre. The penthouse of a 17th Century timbered building, the apartment can sleep up to 7 people (5 beds).
The security deposit represents the MAXIMUM amount for which you would be liable ONLY IN THE EVENT OF DAMAGE DURING YOUR STAY. Otherwise you pay nothing. The process is 100% controlled by ABNB as mediators.
“The apartment has been sumptuously decorated and restored sympathetically keeping all of its original beams and charming historic touches”. TRAVEL AGENT MAGAZINE
An original 17th century wooden staircase leads up to the living areas, beamed drawing room (elegant 18th Century mirror) and separate kitchen: fully equipped, Siemens high-end oven, Miele washer/drier. All utensils are provided to ensure the most enthusiastic chefs amongst you can eat in if you choose
A second staircase leads up to the 2 bedrooms, and Philippe Starck designer bathroom (installed 2015). The bedroom's skylight (blackout blinds for restful sleep) offers views of the neighbouring St. Eustache Church. Solid bleached oak parquet flooring throughout.
“The property is bright, well appointed and fully equipped with all the modern comforts”. TRAVEL AGENT MAGAZINE
My business objective remains the same since 1999: to create comfortable accommodations, on par with elegant boutique hotels, in enviable locations, that offer excellent value for money.
All bed and bath linens of the highest quality of Egyptian cotton. Beds offer the highest level of comfort. A stone's throw from the Louvre and the Seine, you cannot beat the central location of the apartment. The neighbouring pedestrian Quartier Montorgueil embodies the essence of authentic Parisian life. One of the capital's most colourful market streets.

50 Euros charge for check-ins after 8pm
Cleaning after your stay, bed and bath linens are all included in the cost of your stay. You are required to take all rubbish out and to wash your dishes or load the dishwasher the night before. A penalty of 50 Euros will automatically be levied if you do not do this. This reflects the charge that the professional cleaning company pass onto us.

I am the founder and owner of Pad A Terre (French registered company since 1999) through which I manage my portfolio of properties in Paris. Outside of running this business, I love art, music, good food and wine and am a committed (albeit amateur) classical singer.
I buy apartments in only the best parts of town and renovate with a very clever architect to a high standard. All apartments are near key museums and sites, good restaurants, shops, markets etc.
We offer the advantages of owner direct rentals within a professional context. Our hospitality is hotel standard (quality linens, professional cleaning,check-in). We comply with local authority laws and all apartments are covered by the legally required PARIS TOWN HALL VACATION RENTAL LICENCE.
We are small, our service is ' personal'. The enjoyment that I get out of running this business is in encouraging guests to discover and enjoy the 'real' Paris. Our website offers a unique live curated feed of what's on and where to go, eat and shop.
We look forward to welcoming you to Paris.
James Burgess, Owner & CEO Pad A Terre
