Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2)

This is an extremely charming, one bedroom apartment located in a beautiful 18th century building right near the Blvd St. Germain and the Rue de Buci in the 6th arrondissement in Paris. The apartment has beamed ceilings and two large windows facing the courtyard, making it extremely quiet.

There are 2 twin beds put together in the bedroom, one full bathroom with a large stall shower, sink, and toilet, and another bathroom with just a bathtub and a sink. The sofas in the living room are also quite comfortable for sleeping, so two people can sleep in separate rooms if needed. The apartment was recently renovated so the bathrooms and finishes are relatively new. There is a large TV, Wifi, DVD player, and an internet phone that provides free calls to the USA. There is no elevator but the apartment is located one flight up and it is an easy walk up.

I also have an English-speaking assistant available in Paris to help you if you have any questions or concerns.

Rue de Seine is a lively, fashionable street, lined with art galleries, cafes, and food stores. It is a 5 minute walk from the Blvd Saint-Germain and the River Seine. It is a 'dream' location in Paris.

About The Owner

I have lived in New York City all my life. I am a real estate broker with Sotheby's International specializing in residential properties.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1983

Why The Owner chose Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Even though everyone thought he was crazy, my father bought this apartment in Paris in 1983. It was a total wreck but in a wonderful location in a beautiful building. His French is not great but that didn't stop him. He had the apartment completely renovated. About 6 years ago, he succeeded in buying the hallway that was adjacent to our apartment and we were able to connect the two and greatly enlarge the apartment. The apartment was totally renovated again at that time. It's been so great having a place like this to go to whenever airfares are low. I would rather stay in this apartment than any of the great hotels in Paris. It's just a terrific experience.

What makes this apartment unique

I can take advantage of all the wonderful food stores on the Rue de Seine and Rue de Buci and have some delicious meals in the apartment. Check out the video that I made showing the Rue de Buci, just around the corner from the apartment. You can find it on youtube with the title' Tour of the Rue de Buci.' Be sure to turn up the volume to get the full effect.

amazingly central,quiet,comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many homes away from home over the years. This property stands out in many ways:

The location couldn't be better: both close to everything (we didn't use any transportation but our feet except when coming or going from Paris) and completely private and quiet.

The owner was attentive to every question that we sent her way, providing the most clear and effective instructions I have ever seen both before and during our stay.

The bedding, linens, kitchen are simple, comfortable, clean, functional. Plumbing and appliances all work perfectly.

There is a three foot shelf of guide books and a couple feet of fiction vacation reading.

There is every possible convenience just outside the apartment door, including a laundromat!

The wireless and phone services make communication with home and around Paris as easy as they could possibly be.

This apartment is a lucky find.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a delightful property with a great location in a very trendy area...within walking distance to so many attractions, shops, restaurants and metro stations. The apartment was very clean, well supplied and comfortable for two people. The kitchen area (small but perfectly adequate) was ideal for simple breakfasts and lunches. However, be aware that the courtyard is shared by a restaurant, and employees arrive around 6:30 AM and there is quite a bit of noise (pots and dishes clattering and conversation). Then from around 10:30 until close to midnight there is a repeat as the restaurant closes and clean-up commences. We stayed in early summer and kept the windows open for fresh air so the restaurant noises impacted us a few times.

Much better than the photos suggest! Perfect location, generous size, and definately charming.

  • 4 of 5

Feels like living in Paris, in the very best way. No washing machine, but the bathtub can be used or laundromat in the next building. Strange little rickety corridor to reach apartment, but don't worry! We absolutely loved this apartment, and would highly recommend.

Sweet, light; everything needed. Responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

I liked it and recommend it. Weather was hot so fans were very useful. Close to everything. Smoker in courtyard, but that's not owner's fault ... just Paris enjoying its life. When i return i am very likely to rent again.

In the Heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED every minute of our stay in this cozy apartment. It had everything we needed and it is in a great location. We were able to walk to everything from this lovely courtyard building. The owner is extremely responsive and well organized. Her instructions on everything from how to turn on the hall lights to using the wifi were meticulous and even included photos. For the jet lagged, those photos were quite helpful!

We have stayed in beautiful hotels on both the Left Bank and the Right Bank in the past, but staying in this charming apartment was far superior. It had more space, a comfortable bed, two showers, a large couch in the living area and a simple kitchen. It was meticulously clean and well stocked with sheets, towels and other necessities. Best of all, just outside the front door are some of the best food, shopping and sights in Paris. And, I might add that it is far more interesting and fun to walk out of a residential courtyard building like a Parisian than through the lobby of a hotel like a tourist!

The owner also has thoughtful, local caretakers. Should any emergency arise, they respond immediately. This is a wonderful find and we can’t recommend it highly enough. My husband and I are already plotting and planning a return visit to “our” apartment in Paris.

This property is exactly as advertised: charming, wonderfully located, well fitted for 1-2 guests. Best of all, the owner is very attentive to comments and questions, responding quickly and helpfully. It is a great find.
