Le Magenta is a spacious three-bedroom apartment newly renovated and decorated located on the third floor of a classic Parisian building on a quiet street.
There are three distinct workspaces in the apartment, including one with a desktop computer and combination printer/copier/fax.
The entrance foyer is ample and has places to hang your coat, drop your umbrella and leave your keys.
Off the foyer, to the right, is a luxurious master bedroom, which boasts a queen-size bed that can be made up as twins. A beautiful armoire provides ample hanging and luggage space and an antique secrétaire has drawer space. At the foot of the bed is an ornamental fireplace with marble mantle and large mirror. The room’s flat-screen TV sits on the secretary for easy viewing from the bed.
The second bedroom can also be accessed through two doors -- from the foyer, and from the living room (an unusual feature). The queen-size bed can also be separated, but with the twin beds remaining relatively close together, between the built in cabinetry that surrounds the beds, where you can tuck your belongings away. This room also has an ornamental fireplace and mirror at the foot of the bed and beside the window, a desk and chair.
One of the apartment’s two showers sits just inside the apartment door, to the left. It has a bamboo floor and vanity and elegant fixtures installed as part of the apartment’s recent renovation.
Moving left from the foyer one enters the grand living room that will likely be your main meeting place during your stay. Its attention-grabbing L-shaped magenta canapé, or sofa, is an excellent place to catch your breath, appreciate the lovely painting on the opposite wall or chat with your flat-mates in the comfy chairs just opposite. Two well-dressed windows allow natural light to illuminate the space, which also includes a small desk that is part of a large, well-stocked bookshelf.
Passing through the living room and turning right takes you to the third bedroom. This room serves multiple purposes, acting as a bedroom with high-end queen-size sofa-bed, dining room with seating for six, office with large desk, computer, printer/copier/fax, bookshelf, and TV room. The folding wood and frosted glass doors can be closed to give you maximum privacy.
Turning left when leaving the living room brings you to a very unique feature of Le Magenta. The shower closet is an enclosed space the size of a powder room, which is tiled on all surfaces except the ceiling. On the end wall are gold shower fixtures with both hand-held and rainfall shower heads. A matching sink and mirror are also there for your convenience.
Continuing past the shower closet, one enters the efficient, fully equipped kitchen. From a large refrigerator/freezer, to an induction stove, to a full oven, to a dishwasher, to a washing machine, this kitchen has it all. Also included are a microwave, water purifier, electric tea kettle, tea pot, a complete array of kitchenware including all cooking utensils, dinner and tableware and serving pieces.
Finally, just past the kitchen is the powder room, housing the apartment’s toilet, a sink and two mirrors.
Included in your rental is cable television, with access to over 150 channels (several in English) on both TVs as well as a selection of popular DVDs for your viewing enjoyment. WiFi is also provided, as is free telephone with answering machine. Long distance calls to land lines in 100 countries is complimentary. This extends to calls to cell phones in the US and Canada.
The Magenta is located in Paris' the Right Bank, or "La Rive Droite". Close to the famous traditional boulangerie "Du Pain et Des Idées" and many cafés. There are a number of grocery stores within a five minute walk of the apartment. You can walk to both Place de la Republique and the Canal Saint Martin in about five minutes.
A short Métro ride from both Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est.
