There are so many great things to say about this home. We were a family of 4 and it was exactly what we were looking for. First off, lets just say Location, location, location! It was a secure building located 2 blocks from the Seine and a block from central St Germaine des Pres (and metro line). This unit is located above Cafe Le Clerc which was fabulous for us. We could let the kids veg while we enjoyed a glass or wine or coffee. 2.5 blocks from Monoprix and 5-8 minute walk to the Latin Quarter. We used Uber a lot and never waited more than 3-5 minutes. The owners thought of everything. It was nicely decorated, comfortable and clean. 2 bathrooms (but one toilet which was not an issue for us at all) updated kitchen and washer/dryer. We were greeted by Fernando who walked us in and showed us all around and shared everything we needed to know. Although we were did not receive the welcoming basket as others did on their stay, there was a book with everything you would need to know about the unit as well as the surrounding area. We took their advice about the Profiteroles at Cafe DeFlore just up the street. They were amazing. Highly recommend them and this fabulous home. I'm already dreaming about my next trip back to Paris. Also, would like to thank (G.P.) for being very a conscientious Owner. You really did think of everything. Your home is lovely and it truly made our stay!!!!
Clean, modern, nicely appointed, stellar location.
The location was amazing. Steps away from amazing patisseries, famous cafes, a few blocks away from Notre Dame & the Louvre. Fab restaurants everywhere. The owner was kind enough to let us check in early. The showers and linens were great. Our experience was wonderful. Thank you!
Amazing Stay !
This property is an updated, well appointed and well cared for unit. While our initial reaction was "cozy" we never felt short of space and my family of four, 2 adults 2 tweens, were comfortable the entire stay. The rooms are bright, clean and modern and there was plenty of space to put our things as we settled in. The place was spotless including all the dishes and flatware (an experience we did not have in London so we appreciated this all the more!). All the amenities and little touches including and a welcome basket with coffee and snacks were first rate. I also appreciated the First Aid Kit that was provided as I needed band-aids for the blisters I got from so much walking in beautiful Paris! Enough cannot be said about the AMAZING location. This property is in the heart of St. Germain with the Abby and famous cafes a block away. We also ventured a few blocks over to the Latin Quarter and the amazing shops and cafes nearby. The property is easy walking distance to the museums, Luxembourg Garden and Notre Dame. The communication with the owner was beyond excellent. The day of check in we had quite the cab ride from CDG due to two major events in Paris that closed many streets. The owners assistant, Frank, was in constant contact and even got on the phone with our cab driver to help him navigate around all the closed roads. Paris also had a heat wave when we arrived, and Frank made sure to have a portable air-conditioner for us. Frank also walked us to the nearest grocery to show us our way around the area. There is a booklet provided for the property with every detail you could possibly need regarding how to work and where to find everything in the unit. There was also local information that was quite helpful. Thank you for all your care and attention to this property and your guests. We have recommended this property to our friends who plan to travel to Paris and can only hope we are able to return soon as well !
Great apartment in a great location
We stayed for 6 nights with two kids (16 and 7) and had a wonderful stay. It was warm in Paris that week and with the windows open there was street noise in the apartment but really wasn't a problem.
well appointed and perfectly located
This truly is my very favorite location in all of Paris: close to everything! I stayed here with my daughter, son in law and their two year old and we couldn't have been happier. True, the apartment is compact. But it has everything you could possibly need, including things that made our little girl very happy: comfortable area to play, crib, high chair, and protection against any sharp corners on counters to keep her safe. It's an extremely well thought out little apartment -- very clean with great lighting and a wonderful draft should you want some cool air. I mention this because we were in Paris the last week of May. An unusual heat wave pushed the temperatures outside to over 90F. We could have used the fans that are stored in the apartment, but we didn't have to. There are shutters and a two-way exposure allows there to be a delightful breeze.
I should also say that every email I sent (with numerous questions, especially concerning supplies and arrival times, etc.) was promptly answered. I'm in Paris several times a year so I know the city well, but I don't really know the local tricks and favorites for young children. I got some wonderful ideas from the owners and I'm forever grateful for their helpfulness.
One comment: the apartment is on the first floor. It faces a quiet street (and a courtyard for one of the bedrooms), but if you keep the windows wide open, you're going to hear the hum of happy diners in the evening. (But by 11 it all stops and there is complete silence.) Too, in the morning, you'll hear the city waking up. Not a problem! There isn't significant car traffic here and during the night (and afternoon!) hours, the place is really very peaceful.
In sum -- a terrific place to stay! It was a beautiful and memorable eight day for us!
Graet apartment, great owner and terrific location
From the beginning of our inquiries, the owner was incredibly responsive and easy to communicate with. The apartment has the most perfect location ever, looks just like the pictures and has everything you need! It is not super huge but it was perfect for myself, my husband and our daughter and we could Easily accommodate a forth person. Recommend it highly.

Saint-Germain, a central district steeped in history. Whether at midday or midnight, the streets of the Saint Germain district are always filled with life. You will love this district where good cheer prevails. Finding an apartment for short-term rental is the perfect way to get the most out of the area. An area that has inspired many artists Many artists have walked the streets of this neighborhood, many singers have sung its praises, and every street here has a million stories to tell. Rue des Canettes, popular with student youth for many centuries, is well known for its little bars and cafés where people drink up before moving on to the latest cellar bars playing jazz music. And although Saint Germain may have lost some of its village feel, many streets and passageways remain, such as Cour du Commerce Saint André, which has been around since 1735 and is home to Le Procope, the oldest café in France. A very strong cultural heritage History is with you every step of the way: as you walk down Rue de l’École de Médecine, you might be interested to know that you are walking on a former Gallo-Roman track. You can also see a large plaque erected in honor of Sarah Bernhardt in the place where a gate to the Couvent des Cordeliers stood, an establishment of which only the dining hall remains. Of the immense Abbaye Saint Germain des Prés, founded by the Merovingian king, Childebert I, only the church and its charming little square remain. This is extremely interesting as it dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries. The paintings in the nave and all around the chancel are the work of Hippolyte Flandrin, a student of Ingres. You can admire the neoclassical Odéon theater, built in the 18th century for the Théâtre Français, and which witnessed the student revolt of May 1968. The Palais du Luxembourg, your haven of greenery, isn't too far away. Transportation and amenities to make your trip easier Plenty of buses criss-cross the district and there are several metro stations not too far apart so that your visit won't be tiring. Whether you decide to sit down for a full meal or just a snack, you will find businesses open to satisfy your hunger.
