Well Located and Charming Apartment
We just finished a two-week stay at the apartment, and we were impressed at its good location. It was within walking distance of so many interesting places including Saint Sulpice, St. Joseph des Carmes (it overlooks the convent's garden), the Jardin des Plantes, the Pantheon, and the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg. Slightly farther but still within walking distance is the Quartier Latin and the Tour Montparnasse.
The kitchen served our needs well. Across the street was an excellent bakery and within a block were two small, but well-stocked grocery stores. Within walking distance is the incomparable Grand Epicerie of Paris. Twice a week there is a large open-air market at the Boulevard Raspail that is not to be missed. There is a brasserie on a nearby corner that made us feel at home when we would stop by for an evening beer.
The apartment is close to several Metro stops as well as the Luxembourg RER station (for those riding the train from CDG airport). No need to waste time and money on taxis! The Gare Montparnasse is within walking distance while the other stations are easily accessed on the Metro.
The apartment itself is spacious by Parisian standards. The dining room overlooks St. Joseph des Carmes in the near distance. At night, in the farther distance, we enjoyed watching the light show from the Eiffel Tower. The two bedrooms open out onto the courtyard, so there is no problem with traffic sounds at night.
The owner, Mme. Jacky, is a charming and considerate person who will help ensure a pleasant visit. And she also speaks English well!
We were looking for an authentic Parisian experience, and this served us well!
Owner's Response: I am glad that enjoyed it. Hope to sse you soon !
Thanks a lot
