Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in 14th Montparnasse - Home in Paris

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.

Comfortable central Paris apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is as shown in the pictures. Very comfortable, clean.

It is very convenient to a number of the museums, "old" Paris, and parks; we walked to many.

The apartment is on the 4th floor with no elevator but we soon got used to that.

Elizabeth arranged our taxi to the airport which worked out very well - good driver; clean, large van; and reasonable price.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Paris many times we can honestly say this was the best apartment we have booked. Well equipped, comfortable, very clean and big enough for four adults sharing. Elisabeth is very welcoming and helpful and she even bought a big pot to enable my son to make a fantastic birthday meal for me with the fabulous fresh ingredients he found in the wonderful shops just round the corner from the flat. Close to the RER and metro this is a perfect location in the "real" Paris.

Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing visit to Paris and the apartment was lovely . Beautifully kept, comfortable and in a perfect location to enjoy the markets, shops and restaurants of Montparnasse. We particularly enjoyed the restaurants Le Cornichon and Augustin Bistrot (be sure to make reservations and not through the online service The Fork - they don't seem to check that service even though it's offered). Both are very near the apartment .

Elisabeth was very responsive and available for any questions we had. I would recommend this apartment to my friends or relatives.

Perfection in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Based on previous reviews, photos on Home Away, emails with Elisabeth (the owner) and a phone conversation with her, my husband and I had very high expectations for our three week stay. I am delighted to say that everything about the apartment and its location exceeded our expectations.

The apartment is beautiful, extremely comfortable and meticulously clean featuring lovely, tasteful decor. Elisabeth provides the highest quality bedding, towels, glassware, cooking utensils and dishes. The high ceilings, marble fireplaces, chandeliers and antique furniture beautifully reflect the apartment's history and make you feel like a true Parisian! The modern renovations in the kitchen and bath add to the comfort and ease of enjoying daily life in this spectacular setting. This apartment felt like home and we loved every minute there.

The location of the apartment in a safe, quiet neighborhood assures a feeling of comfort and safety. Yet, within a five minute ( or less) walk, you find a number of boutiques, cafés, bakeries, markets, wine stores, the metro and the fabulous Rue DaGuerre - a pedestrian market street filled with vendors of fresh fruit, vegetables, cheeses, breads, pastries, flowers, fish and meats. We appreciated the clean and convenient laundromat just one door away from the apartment building.

Finally, I can't say enough about Elisabeth. Her lovely demeanor and warmth added a great deal to our stay and we felt that the apartment perfectly reflected her grace and charm. She is extremely helpful and knowledgable and has lived in this building with her family for a number of years. Knowing she is available and willing to provide information and answer questions should provide a level of comfort. We thank her for all her help and for the opportunity to experience this wonderful apartment. Truly, perfection in Paris.

Live like a Parisian

  • 5 of 5

An up market apartment in close proximity to the city center of Paris. If you like comfortable beds, chandeliers and living in an authentic inner Paris suburb then this is for you. This apartment is less than 50m from Rue Daguerre with its pedestrian shopping and nightly cosmopolitan restaurants.

Scrupulously clean. Both French and English TV channels were provided by the friendly owner Elisabeth who incidentally spoke excellent English.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful period character with clean modern style

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as described and beautifully presented. Elisabeth was very welcoming and helpful. Good bus link for Orly airport and the metro links were very easy for all of Paris. Easy to walk to the Luxembourg gardens and the neighbourhood provides great food shopping from essentials to more exotic foods. Plenty of small restaurants and wine bars with outside space to sit and watch Paris go by. Our teenager was particularly appreciative of the fast broadband (better than home!)

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).
