Effortlessly chic and cleverly designed – this apartment in the Grands Boulevards-Opera neighbourhood is the perfect base for taking in the delights of the 10th arrondissement. Although not centrally located, a walk around the surrounding area will have you discovering bohemian eateries, hip bars and gourmet food stalls. With such a glorious local food scene, you'll want to walk off last night's over-indulgence. Fortunately, it's a pleasant twenty-four-minute stroll to the historic Sacré-Cœur and a lighter twenty-minute walk from Opera Garnier if you're after a taste of high culture and evening entertainment. Back home, from the moment you descend the spiral staircase, you'll fall head over heels for the cosy basement living space, benefitting from soft thoughtful furnishings, gold-accented touches and an arched ceiling that simply exudes character. Upstairs, sit down for breakfast in a pastel pink dining area, complete with stylish lighting and a funky kitchen backsplash – we like to think this resembles a quirky Parisian cafe – it's the perfect spot to delve into flakey croissants and mini madeleines come morning.
