Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Sorbonne

A charming, sunny and peaceful two-room flat close to the Cluny-La Sorbonne metr

In an attractive 18th-century buildingthis charming flat is divided into two tranquil rooms in a sunny courtyard.

We are a minute from Line 10 on the metro at the Cluny-La Sorbonne stop, five minutes from the Notre Dame and the Pantheon.

We are also five minutes from the Saint Michel RER B station with services to Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports

We are five minutes away from a market that opens three times a week,

There is a bus stop, shops, and restaurants at the foot of the building.

If you want to relax during a fulfilling day, the Jardins du Luxemberg and the Jardin del Plantes botanical garden are just a few metres away.

Ideally located, all of Paris' main attractions are within walking distance.

The flat was fully renovated in July 2014.

We can offer you a bottle of bottle of champagne!

We are gay friendly.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get. Amazing experience and location from A to Z. Yes there is 75 steps, but this is Paris !

It's safer and super quiet even with the windows open. Thanks for the nice touch with the bottle of Chanpagne.

Than again. Will be back soon.

Amazing...A touch of true Parisian life!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I (from Canada) stayed at "The Walls..." from Sept. 14th until Sept. 23rd, 2016. It was such a memorable experience that we would return in the blink of an eye on our next trip to Paris! Emmanuelle met us at the time of our arrival, introduced us to the apartment and gave us precious information regarding eating out nearby. She also helped us with RER, metro, bus & taxi directions for our days to come. Also, she was readily available if ever we had any problems or needed some advice. She made us feel extremely at home!

We couldn't have had a better location in Paris - the Latin Quarter. We could walk to Notre Dame in 5 minutes to admire its constant beauty, have a stroll along the Seine or head to The Louvre for the afternoon. A Metro station was a 5-minute walk away, as was a great market along Rue St. Germain. We shopped there often to stock up on fresh fruit, vegetables, a varitey of meats & cheeses & fresh fish (our weakness!). Not to mention a well-stocked wine shop. What's more to want?! Her apartment is also a stone's throw from the Sorbonne, the Pantheon & the Jardin de Luxembourg - which kept us busily relaxed the day before our departure.

The apartment itself was true to the photos - gracious & spacious. The bathroom was the best we'd had in our visit to France! The kitchen was well-equipped and very clean, the living area accomodated our moments of relaxation & meals, and the bedroom was comfortable & quiet with lots of space to organize clothes. She left us extras of everything we could possibly need. We very much appreciated the cold bottle of champagne that Emmanuelle offered upon arrival, especially because it was my husband's birthday - and it was an excellent champagne!

We would highly recommend "The Walls..." to friends, family - anyone wanting to spend some safe & comfortable time visiting Paris. Actually, we will book with Emmanuelle again when we are in Paris again!

Lovely modern apartment in the heart of the Latin Quarter

  • 4 of 5

Emmanuelle's apartment is light, spacious & quiet with a separate bedroom, living room, modern kitchen & bathroom. There are many comforts and conveniences including a welcome bottle of champagne & a washing machine. The location is fantastic within 5 mins walking distance of the river, many attractions, restaurants and shops. We had a wonderful time in Paris for 7 nights using Emmanuelle's apartment as our home base. The 75 stairs were a challenge some evenings, but kept us fit (phew) so take care! There is no elevator. We explored Paris during a 7day heatwave with temps unusually hot above 36 degrees Celsius. We had lots of refreshing showers. Next time there will be a fan. It's a great place to stay. Thanks Emmanuelle. Merci.

Very good apartment.

  • 4 of 5

My wife & I stayed 4 nights here in August 2016 & found it to be a very pleasant & well fitted apartment. It is situated only a few minutes walk to plenty of restaurants & cafes as well as being only 10 minutes walk to Notre Dame. Metro stations are also very near with a direct service to CDG airport.

The only slight drawback is that it is situated on the 4th floor of the building which has no lift.

True Parisian Experience

  • 5 of 5

Emmanuelle was very kind to greet us at her flat upon our arrival in Paris. We stayed for 7 wonderful nights. This flat is located in the Latin Quarter . Just a short walk down the street to Notre Dame and the Seine and a short walk up the street to the Pantheon and Luxembourg Gardens. We walked almost everywhere we wanted to go and when we chose not to walk to our destination, the cab stand and the metro stop are an easy 3-5 minute walk . Our daughter -in- law is from Paris and she highly recommended this area for our stay. We were very happy with the location and the flat was just what we wanted for a true Parisian experience. Thank you Emmanuelle for your hospitality and I highly recommend this apartment .

Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apt. in July of 2016 and we were very happy with it.

Best Things:

The host (Emmanuelle)was very helpful and quick to communicate

The Location is perfect - close to many Metro stops and walking distance to many greats sites in Paris

The Price

Only negative is that it is a third story walk up and after a full day of site seeing those steps can be a small bother.

Overall a great apt. for a Paris vacation
