If you have always imagined spending a week in the bejewelled, throbbing heart of France, playing the flaneur as you amble along immaculate boulevards with the verses of Paul Verlaine and Oscar Wilde on your lips, One Authentic Properties has a proposition for you. Stay at a luxury apartment in Paris, which marries timeless Haussmannien aesthetics to the apex of contemporary comfort, to complete your bespoke belle époque.
Located on Avenue Raymond Poincaré, the namesake full-service property Poincaré occupies a prime location in the centre of the city, only a fifteen-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. Perched on the second floor in the 16th Arrondissement, Poincaré commands a rare view of the march of life in Paris along the urban promenades, once frequented by Honore de Balzac and Claude Debussy.
With 3,800 square feet of thoughtfully crafted space, the lavish apartment comes furnished with two spacious salons, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room with a view of the city, a private executive office, four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and two proximate parking spaces. While the antiquarian allure of ageless Italian furniture suffuses this luxury apartment in Paris with the charms of the Old World, Poincaré’s modish amenities look forward, integrating state-of-the-art audio, lighting, and air conditioning systems with the grandeur of the past. Essential utilities such as high-speed Wi-Fi and a comprehensive security system are provided within the apartment for the consummate comfort of our guests. We also provide concierge, chef and butler, and chauffer services à la carte to our discerning guests.
The time-honoured cafes of Avenue Victor Hugo, which were made for introspection and reverie, are only a stone’s throw away from Poincaré and present the possibility of unforgettable bohemian evenings. You may also wish to explore the vibrant French countryside at a wine bar, led by an erudite sommelier, through an assortment of sparkling wines perfectly paired with platters of cheese and charcuterie. With sundown, the City of Lights is enrobed in mellow shades of yellow as piano bars, night clubs, jazz clubs, concept restaurants, cabaret venues, opera houses, and rooftop brasseries usher in the denizens of the night with magnificent ceremony and pomp. For quieter twilight pleasures, strolling down the banks of the River Seine from Notre Dame to Les Invalides, visiting the Louvre Palace and the Museum by moonlight, and biking through the quaint cobbled streets of Montmartre present the city’s innumerable treasures draped in a chiaroscuro of amber, palatinate, and vin rouge. The famed Carette, which is just around the corner on 4 Place du Trocadéro, is ideally situated for coffee and croissants the morning after.
Wherever you choose to lose yourself among the mesmerizing charms of the French capital, the enchantment of Poincaré will welcome you back into a place you can call home. Designed with impeccable taste and a palate for joie de vivre, this apartment will complete your grand Parisian sojourn, promising an experience like no other.
