Overview

About the property

1 bedroom elegantly furnished with double French doors on the three sides.

This bright and cheery newly renovated apartment is located near shops, restaurants and museums in the heart of the fashionable Left Bank just one block from the Luxembourg Gardens.

Combining the best of old world charm with state of the art amenities, the apartment includes a fully equipped gourmet cook's kitchen, slate tile bath with sunken tub and shower, original art, antiques and hardwood floors.

An objective of the renovation was to optimize the apartment area (635 square feet) and offer a large open area with light coming from three sides and minimize circulation area.

There is a separate large bedroom with a queen bed, as well as a convertible sofa with double mattress in the living room; each with independent access to the bathroom. The dining room seats six comfortably.

Amenities include a flat screen television, high speed internet access (fiber optics), CD and DVD players, dryer, washer, dishwasher, fresh fruit juicer, Braun and Nespresso coffee makers, and microwave.

The apartment provides all of the comforts of home, yet the location on the fourth floor above an open and airy garden courtyard with views of quaint Paris buildings and rooftops will remind you that you have 'come home' to one of the most exciting and glamorous cities in the world.

About Elie

We live on the east coast and enjoy visiting Paris several times each year. We find that this apartment has all we can wish for.

Elie purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Elie chose Notre-Dame-des-Champs

After comparing other locations in Paris, we found that the Luxembourg area offers a unique mix of activities. We like walking through the streets and discovering a new restaurant or boutique. We enjoy walking or jogging in the Luxembourg Gardens. Tennis courts are open to the public with a reservation.

While it is close to the main tourist areas: St Germain des Près, rue de Bucci and Notre Dame, the immediate surroundings are peaceful and quiet.

Transportation to the two main airports, Charles de Gaulle and Orly, is very practical. Depending on luggage, we take a cab, use the RER trains to the Luxembourg station or sometimes rent a car.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment, which was completely remodeled makes good use of each square foot. Unlike traditional apartment layouts where each room is partitioned, the apartment is open, yet it allows for people sleeping in the bedroom and those using the convertible bed (an Italian design with a firm base) to have separate access to the bathroom and toilet.

For those who like to cook, the kitchen includes all the equipment necessary.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for the opportunity to rent your beautiful apartment. You have done an outstanding job with both design and comfort.

A beautiful and comfortable place in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is without a doubt the best apartment stay I've had in the seventeen years I've been renting in Paris. Perfect location...easy to get to the Luxembourg Gardens, to shopping, to the grocery store, to the Marche Raspail and after two weeks. I felt like it was my neighborhood. The staff at the 20/Go grocery store next door were great help and were cordial and friendly. I met a couple of people who live in the building who were also friendly and helpful...particularly the first day when I forgot what the digicode was and had left my notes in the apartment. THAT only happens ONCE!!

The apartment itself is very comfortable, beautifully furnished and I felt very secure in the building. I loved that the bedroom windows opened into the trees...dappled sunlight in the afternoon, bird songs all day long, and with shutters closed and windows opened, cool breezes at night.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with those of us who come to Paris from time to time.

Best of Parisian Life!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in this lovely apartment for 5 nights ~ it was perfect for us in every way! We loved the location, in a quiet residential neighborhood a stone's throw from Luxembourg Gardens. I went out each morning to shop for breakfast and lunch at one of the many shops within a block of the apartment, and then we ventured out to one of the great restaurants nearby, or further out, for dinner.

The apartment itself was extremely quiet and welcoming to come home to each day, and we loved the ample natural daylight streaming in the windows, as well as the layout and furnishings of the apartment. It definitely felt like a Parisian "home away from home" for us. We have rented 7 apartments in Paris over the years, mostly in the St. Germain area, and this one was by far the best! It's close enough to walk nearly everywhere, which we did each day, yet you really feel like a Parisian because you're not staying in the midst of the tourists.

We also really appreciated the great recommendations, help and responsiveness the owner provided in making our stay such a pleasurable one. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We highly recommend the apartment, especially for couples, and we will definitely be back!

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Maybe even nicer than the photos show. We stayed 6 nights in this apartment and were glad to have found it. The building and neighborhood were quiet and felt very safe. Linens and other home goods were very high quality. Three groceries (1 right downstairs) on the block as well as bakeries, etc. we visited in August and found some nearby cafes closed, but your mileage may vary. Still many great choices a little further out. Were it not for the building across the street you could throw a baseball into the Luxembourg Gardens from the front door. Owners were responsive and great to do business with. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to a friend.

Chic, light-filled flat in the Left Bank.

  • 5 of 5

I spent five wonderful days and nights in this elegant flat. Close to Luxembourg Gardens, cute restaurants, markets and shopping in St. Germain, I highly recommend it for people that want to get away from the tourists. The unit itself is insanely chic and well-appointed. Everything worked and was clean. I will definitely be back. Many thanks.

A terific Paris pied a terre.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 4 great days here. The apartment was bright, warm and comfortable. The layout works well. The living room became our HQ where we sat to either unwind or plan our adventures,

The location is, well. magnifique. I can't think of a more Parisian experience than buying croissants, baguettes and cheese and whiling away a couple of hours in the Luxembourg Gardens.

We'll stay there3 again -- hopefully longer next time.

Bright, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located near the Luxembourg Gardens, this apartment is immaculate and beautifully appointed. The owners' personal touches add to the comfort and pleasure, and the location on an interior courtyard provides quiet and light on three exposures. Metro, RER, and bus transportation; markets; restaurants and cafes; and shops are all nearby. We have only been home 10 days but are already talking about returning. Highly recommended.
