Overview

About the property

Studio Apartment with Kitchen and Bathroom, (Sleeps 2)

NON-SMOKING apartment

Nestled in the Latin Quarter, on the 14th century street Rue du Fer a Moulin, who would ever guess there would be a bucolic paradise behind the big doors? Set into a private street accessible only by a coded entrance, it feels like walking into your own secret garden as you enter this charming studio.

Within easy walking distance of the bustling well known market street, Rue Mouffetard, yet bathed in delicious silence, the only thing to disturb your reveries are the birds in morning song.

This is a neighbourhood steeped in history, where you can feel the breath of the Musketeers flow out of Dumas’ pages and at the same time take advantage of all the services on offer: bakeries serving hot croissants and bread fresh from the oven, bistrots frequented by locals, cheese shops, right down to cinemas and theatres.

Only a hop, skip and a jump away are such world famous sites such as Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens, Jardin des Plantes with it’s renowned Natural History Museum. Only next door is the 1920s Paris Mosque and it’s tea-room straight from a Delacroix tableau. Around the corner, you can play petanque in the 1st century Roman amphitheatre – Arenes de Lutece or walk over to the Seine and dance tango at weekends while watching the boats pass up and down.

The studio is self-contained with everything from guides on Paris to wifi, free international phone calls, your own verdant window boxes and a kitchen-dining room.

Ideal for a couple with 1 queen-size bed. It has catered for 3 with a futon supplied extra.

The owner lives downstairs and will be delighted to help you, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German & Japanese.

About Andrew

I started my life as an engineer. I've been lucky enough to work in about 20 countries around the globe. I've lived in Paris for 16 years and now teach at university. In my spare time, the abundance of art in Paris has inspired me to do some of my own, so don't be surprised if you find me sculpting or painting next door where I live.

Andrew purchased this studio in 2003

Why Andrew chose Jardin des Plantes

We have a great little community. We often eat together and socialise together. My neighbours are very international and speak many languages. We always enjoy the exchange with visitors to Paris

What makes this studio unique

A real community of eclectic Parisians, as Paris has always been. Come and join us.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

If you truly want a pied à terre in Paris, this is perfect! Centrally located, a wonderfully amenable and helpful host, all the basic comforts one needs, and the most comfortable pull-out bed.

We enjoyed our stay in this small but charming apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Very good neighborhood for restaurants, bakeries, bars, etc. A charming little apartment, quiet and well maintained. All the plants give the courtyard a pleasant atmosphere, and the location is near several bus stops and the Metro. We would definitely recommend it for a couple looking for a place for a short stay in Paris. There isn't a lot of space inside the apartment, but we were only looking for a place to sleep, shower, and freshen up, so it was ideal. Andrew provides excellent information for getting around the city, and maintains the apartment in good condition. Five stars!

Very nice, calm and cozy little apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apart from the local housekeeper lady who was quite rude when I arrived, the owner, Andrew, was extremely caring and helpful even from a distance (he was away when I stayed in his apartment), and his apartment had everything I needed for my stay. The atmosphere of the inner walkway-like courtyard with all the pots of flowers and small trees was very pleasant. I'd recommend it to anyone who is seeking a calm little island to stay in the middle of the busy Paris.

Well located in the heart of Paris in the famous Latin Quarter, my studio is surrounded by good restaurants and food shops. If you like markets, there is also the famous Rue Mouffetard around the corner with it's fresh food beautifully laid out every day. You are within easy walking distance of Notre Dame, the Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens, the Botanic Gardens among others. Discover my neighbours who, for the most part, also speak many languages, including English. It would be a delight to have you enrich our local neighbourhood with your tales. Come and join me in experiencing Paris the Parisian way.
