About Jane Ferguson

I am a Toronto lawyer who lived and studied in Paris for a year when I was in my early 20's. I met my American husband that year in Paris. Since then, Paris has always been a special place for me. We now live in Toronto with our two university age sons.

Jane Ferguson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jane Ferguson chose Paris

My dream of owing a pied-a-terre in Paris was formed the year I lived there in the early 80's and was finally realized in 2012 when I found this apartment in the perfect location in St. Germain des Pres on the border of the Latin Quarter and a short walk to the Seine - perfect for exploring Paris. It was an estate sale - a rabbit-warren of rooms badly in need of renovation. I took the plunge and spent 6 months doing a total gut and reno. As a result, everything (even the drywall, plumbing & electrical) is all new. I can't use it as much as I would like to so I am delighted to be able to share it with others.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is superb. The amenities complete. Everything is new but fixtures and finishes were chosen to give it a classic elegant Paris apartment feel. I hope you will feel at home there. (One of my repeat clients calls it 'our apartment'!)

Foodies and cooks will love the proximity to the Marche St. Germain food market (open each day but Monday - open 8:30 - 1 Tues - Sat & 8:30 - 1 Sunday) and the organic & eco-friendly Boulevard Raspail market and flea market on Sunday (between rue du Cherche-Midi & rue de Rennes, open 8:30 - 2:30 p.m. Sundays) and the famed epicerie/food hall at the Bon Marche department store south just into the 14th district - about a 15 minute walk from the apartment.

Unbelievable! I would stay here again and again.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful decorated and has all the necessary essentials to thoroughly enjoy a visit to Paris. It is in central location, easy walk to grocery stores, Patissere, Metro, restaurants and sites. One significant consideration, the apartment is not well insulated/sound proofed. We could hear others in apartment (walking in stairs, other apartment activities (alarms, walking etc.) and outside in street of front with bar/shops). If you are sensitive to sounds...just take notice. We would stay here again, though. Thank you for a great time and all assistance needed from Rolando!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. When we renovated in 2012 we soundproofed the entire floor and put the two bedrooms at the back overlooking the quiet inner courtyard to minimize noise. As in any multi-residential building, you are still going to hear people moving about and Paris is a busy city. We look forward to welcoming you back for your next stay.

Amazing Location--Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Perfect. I would stay there again without question. Jane was incredibly responsive, and Roland was the perfect Parisian gentleman. The apartment had everything. Functional and perfect for a family of 4. 3 Metro stops close by and numerous shops and cafes within walking distance. Clean and very inviting. I look forward to our next trip back to Jane's place.

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Jane's lovely apartment for a week while in Paris. What a wonderful property! There was more than enough room for three of us and it was a beautiful, extremely comfortable place to spend our down time. We cooked several meals at the apartment - the kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of places nearby for the makings of a great meal. The apartment is impeccably clean and beautifully furnished, with comfortable beds and plenty of seating. We loved the sophisticated artwork, and the library has many books on exploring Paris. The location is perfect - we could walk almost everywhere we needed to get to and it was a joy just wandering around St Germain des Pres. We will absolutely stay at this fabulous apartment next time we're in Paris!

Memorable, Magnificent, Magical!

  • 5 of 5

What a magical time our family had in this warm, cozy and chic apartment! Jane, the owner, was extremely helpful - going above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect experience at her special home and we did! Roland, the apartment manager was kind and the consummate professional. It was so very pleasurable and easy to walk the city from this location - returning each evening to a beautiful apartment with all the comforts of home. The twinkling, festive lights on the street below the apartment and joy in the air was palpable and intoxicating. We had so many memorable experiences it is hard to pick which was best but walking down the holiday fairyland lit Champs - Elysees, eating roasted chestnuts and munching on Grand Marnier crepes filled to the brim with fresh cream on our way to the Arc de Triomphe, then hiking to the top of the Arc and watching the Tower Eiffel do its sparkling show was simply magical! Thanks so very much for opening up your piece of paradise to us Jane, we can't wait to stay again!

Lovely, just lovely

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4, two teenagers) stayed in this fantastic apartment in August for five days. It is perfectly situated to walk to the Seine, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and to access all of the cafes and shopping in the St. Germain area. Also near the Metro and a cab stand if you are venturing further away. It was a huge help to have a washing machine and dryer, as well as the ability to keep a few things in the fridge and make a cup of coffee. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, with renovated kitchen and bathrooms. At the same time, it feels old world. Truly the best of both. Jane (the owner) and Roland (the manager) were charming, responsive, and shared a lot of information about the area with us. I would not hesitate for five seconds to book this apartment again. In fact, I can't wait to return...

Location

Car: not necessary

In the heart of historic St.Germain des Pres, steps from St. Sulpice, and just south of Boulevard St. Germain off the rue du Four. Close to metro stops St. Germain and Mabillon. 1/3 of a mile to Luxembourg Gardens. Short walk to the Latin Quarter. In the heart of the city and the famous literary quarter and a 5 minute walk to Cafe les deux magots - a favourite haunt of Hemingway, Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald and their contemporaries and the Cafe de Flore - favoured by Picasso (who lived and painted nearby) and Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. Walking distance to many museums. Foodies will love the proximity to the St. Germain market (open every day but Monday), the Organic market on the Boulevard Raspail every Sunday and the famous food hall a 15 minute walk south in Le Bon Marche department store. The apartment is on a small medieval street filled with restaurants, cafes, bars and little shops. A great launching pad for sightseeing, walking, shopping and more.
