Paris' 7th Arrondissement

Knowing that Paris’ 7th Arrondissement houses many of Paris’ most famous landmarks, most people wrongfully assume that it is therefore the busiest.  In fact, other than the landmarks themselves and a few important government buildings, the area is purely residential and holds some of the city’s most prestigious postcodes.   Paris vacation rentals in the 7th Arrondissment, like CobbleStay’s 21, are hard to come by as a result, but if one is available it would be one of the best locations a tourist could ask for.   Only steps from the Eiffel Tower, Musee d’Orsay, and Des Invalides, the complimentary peacefulness the area offers is truly hard to believe.

Possibly the most famous landmark in the entire world, the Eiffel Tower is usually a must see for first time visitors to Paris and the amazing architecture, stunning views and curious historical significance will not disappoint.   The city’s native citizens have their own opinions of the monument of course, but that’s another discussion on its own!   Even if you’re not staying in the 7th, many of CobbleStay’s Paris apartment rentals in other arrondissements have stunning views of the tower and would also be great choices for fans of the tower.

While the Eiffel Tower may be the most famous landmark, the Louvre is quite possibly the most famous museum.  The surprising fact though is that for those visitors to Paris that have been to both the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay, many say Musee d’Orsay was actually their favorite.  Although it’s not as big as the Louvre, it would still take days to see every piece of art and therefore finding a Paris rental apartment in the 7th Arrondissement would be a dream come true for art lovers.  CobbleStay #21 is a short term Paris rental literally right behind the museum and was completely renovated in 2007.

Although there are plenty of other lesser known landmarks in the area, l’Hotel National Des Invalides, more commonly known as Des Invalides, is a multifaceted structure housing monuments, museums, the burial site of Napolean Bonaparte, but most importantly, it is not a hotel as the name suggests.  Some people consider Des Invalides to be a must see in Paris, but it is surprisingly not visited near as frequently possibly due to the fact that tourists just think it’s a hotel!

For visitors that aren’t renting a Paris vacation apartment in the 7th, the one thing the area doesn’t have a lot of is bars and restaurants, but its calm, serene feel consisting of wide, tree lined avenues and visually appealing residences are more than enough to make staying in the 7th a real privilege.
