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 Plaisance

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.

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This property is just delightful. Everything is beautifully fitted out and everything works - hot water, heating, all appliances and services. It is scrupulously clean. All the linen provided is high quality. The host, Elisabeth, is in the same building and was attentive and responsive to all our needs. The area is great, with handy markets and the brasseries and bistros of Montparnasse. I highly recommend this place (and hope it's not full when I want to return).

Great Place in the 14th

  • 5 of 5

We Chose this Apartment Based on other reviews and I have to say it is every bit as quaint and lovely as past residents suggest. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and i have to admit a little sad leaving as it has the charm and feel of a home rather than a vacation rental. If i were to imagine a Vintage style home in Paris for a couple this would be ideal. The home is just off a very nice pedestrian shopping street that has everything you will ever need in life i think. The King sized bed and bedding were absolutely the most comfortable i think i have ever slept in, our children also said the beds were great in the other bedroom. The host is very attentive, thorough in explaining the idiosyncrasy's of the apartment and extremely helpful. This is not a place for people who don't like stairs but i'm sure that is spelled out in the description already. My only criticism would be that the floors are a bit noisy, a trade off as they are undoubtedly original and beautiful, but not a big deal really. All in all this was a fantastic stay for us and we couldn't be happier.

Great apartment in a lovely neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Paris many times and this is really the best apartment we have stayed in. It is really convenient to both airports, we arrived from CDG and were there quickly and easily by RER train (to Denfert Rochereau). The apartment is as shown but nicer in reality. Very spacious for 3 or 4 people and with a really nice bathroom (which is fairly unusual to find in Paris holiday rentals). In winter, it was really warm and with the double glazing was also very quiet. The quartier is really fun, close to everything and the shopping and eating/drinking in rue Daguerre (right on the doorstep) is excellent. Elisabeth was a very helpful and kind host. We would definitely return.

This is a lovely apartment in a quiet but lively enighbourhood.

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect holiday apartment in the 14th Arrondissement. It is on a quiet street, but very close to the lively market shops on Rue Daguerre, the Montparnasse cemetary, the Luxembourg Gardens, and countless bistros and cafes. The Denfert-Rochereau Metro station is a 5-minute walk away, and has easy connections to all of the major destinations in Paris.

We stayed for 10 days with our teenage daughter and had no hesitation in sending her out on her own in the neighbourhood.

The apartment is spotless, with very comfortable beds and lovely Parisienne decor. Our host, Elisabeth, was helpful and easy to contact. We loved everything about it and would return without hesitation.

Excellent stylish bourgois apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were three adults who enjoyed staying in this splendid apartment. It is light and spacious with comfortable chairs(so often missing from rental apartments), newly refitted bathroom and kitchen. Requests for linen change and cleaning of the apartment during our 2.5 week stay were met instantly. It is indeed a comfortable home away from home with art works and chandeliers which add a luxurious touch. It is located just off the pedestrianised street rue Daguerre.

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).
