Overview

About the property

air conditioning, double glass windows, king size bed, very fast internet access

Beautiful apartment situated close to all Parisian sights. Most major tourist attractions can be reached in less than half an hour. The nearest metro is also close - 550 m, a 6 minutes walk.

Tourist attractions in the close neighborhood are the Catacombs of Denfert Rochereau, le Jardin du Luxembourg, the Tower of Montparnasse, the Rodin Museum and La Fondation Cartier.

Montparnasse is known as the artists' quarter. In the 1950s, famous people like Miles Davis, Jean-Paul Sartre & Simone de Beauvoir and Ernest Hemingway (among others) spent much of their time here. Well-known places to visit are le Closerie des Lilas, la Coupole or le Dôme.

The apartment is located in a very popular neighborhood near the authentic Rue Daguerre. This typical French market street has not been invaded by big retailers and still features real small neighborhood shops and tiny trendy boutiques.

People from all over Paris come to this pedestrian street for their food shopping, enjoy a glass of wine on a terrace of a side-walk café or savor dinner in one of the many restaurants the Rue Daguerre offers.

This bustling street reflects old-time Paris and is the charm of this lively and wonderful neighborhood.

The light and sunny three-room apartment (57m2 or 614 sq. ft.) is suitable for 4 persons. Situated on the fourth floor of a quiet building from early 20th century. Furnished with beautiful antique and modern furniture and equipped with a mobile air conditioner. The apartment is also fully equipped with double glass windows.

Several buses and metros are nearby and will lead you quickly everywhere in Paris.

Arrival- and departure day is flexible, depending on the previous and following guests. It is always possible to leave your luggage upon waiting for your apartment.

Accessibility: The apartment is situated on the fourth floor. There is no elevator.

About Elisabeth

Thank you for your interest in my profile. I have the Dutch and the French nationality and I came to Paris to work in 1981. With my husband and two children, I have been living in the quarter of Montparnasse for many years now and I still enjoy every minute of it. Now that my children are studying, I have time to take care of the rental and the guests. It is great to receive visitors from all over the world.

Elisabeth purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Elisabeth chose 14th Montparnasse

The building in which the apartment is situated was built by the great-grandfather of my husband in 1911. The great-grandmother said to the great-grandfather: 'But why are you building in the country side?' as there were just farms, cows and chicken around. The building was finished after WWI when the apartment was let to Mr and Mrs Robbe-Grillet. They were the parents of Alain Robbe-Grillet, the famous French novelist and filmmaker. Until recently, his sister Anne-Lise rented the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The area around the apartment is quiet and safe but lively at the same time. The Rue Daguerre is, as so many guests mention, an oasis of food shops, restaurants and sidewalk cafes. I live in the same building as the apartment and I am always available to give information and help if needed.

Beautiful apartment in the 14th

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, bright and fresh with good sized rooms. The kitchen is very functional with nice dinner ware.

The modern walk in shower is a treat.

My first time in this neighbourhood and I loved it. Short walk to the Montparnasse Cemetery which is quite fascinating. Rue Daguerre is just around the corner and offers every kind of dining experience as well great grocery shopping. Cheese shops to die for. Two Metro lines run quite close to the apt. The host lives nearby and was always available to answer questions and had lots of helpful info on the neighbourhood. I would definitely book this apt again. For those with less mobility keep in mind you do need to walk up 4 flights of stairs but this is the case with most Paris apartments.

Elegant Parisian apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 10 day stay at this lovely apartment. Great fit and finish, classic features, quiet, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, great location, a typical Parisian market right around the corner, restaurants and cafes everywhere. It was perfect for us in every way, a really good feeling space. And we very much appreciated Elisabeth's warm welcome, advice and attentiveness to our needs. The apartment is an easy six minute walk from the combined metro and RER station (Denfert-Rochereau). And the RER from there is a straight shot to CDG airport.

Perfect Apartment in Paris in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family's stay in Paris. We are a family of 4 so having the 2 bedrooms was so much nicer than being crammed into a hotel room. It was also nice to have a living area and kitchen to use if needed. The apartment was very clean and updated in all the right places, yet still had old Parisian charm. It's in a great area full of cafes, bakeries, little shops and close to the metro. Elisabeth is so helpful and responsive every time we contacted her. She even arranged for a taxi to pick us up early in the morning when we were headed back home. If we ever go back to Paris, we would definitely stay here again. I can't say enough great things about this apartment! The only negative would be if you aren't able to climb stairs. It is on the 4th floor so it would be a lot of stairs to climb for someone who doesn't like stairs. It didn't bother us though, we absolutely loved this apartment and you couldn't ask for a more friendly and helpful owner!

An elegant Parisien apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, teenage daughter and I spent a very pleasant week here. The apartment is elegant, clean and furnished to a high standard. It is in a quiet street, yet close to the wonderful bustle of rue Daguerre, with food stores so complete we did not have to bother with the street markets at Edgar Quinet or Mouton Duvernet, which gave us flexibility with shopping - although both these are an easy walk away and worth a stroll.

Elisabeth was very helpful and we had no problems at all. Facilities are all modern and function well.

Exactly as described !

  • 5 of 5

Elisabeth's apartment is immaculate , quiet and comfortable. We stayed 5 nights last week ( 2 adults and 2 teens). She is a gracious and kind host ; helping to answer all questions, checking in on us a few days into our stay and arranging a properly sized taxi to get us back to the airport. The apartment is exactly as pictured and described ; after very long days walking and touring it was a welcome place to come back to. I would 100% recommend this apartment ! We did not use the kitchen for cooking , but it was very well stocked with clean cookware and dishes.

Gare Montparnasse: 0,5 mile
Nearest Restaurant

The apartment is situated near the metro and RER station Denfert Rochereau. It is a direct line from Gare du Nord if you are travelling by Eurostar or by Thalys.

If you are travelling by plane, there is a direct RER rail link from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport and a direct bus from Orly airport.

The railway station Montparnasse is also nearby if you are coming from the west or from the south-west of France or if you wish to go further afield to Chartres.

Paris itself, not including the suburbs, is relatively small and from the apartment - as I have already mentioned - you can reach most major tourist attractions in less than half an hour. The nearest metro stations are Denfert Rochereau and Gaîté. Denfert Rochereau is 550 m away and about a 6 minutes walk, Gaîté is 650 m away and about 7 minutes by foot.

Euro Disney is easily reached by RER B and A or by car (motorway A4).
