About Rizzoli Vittoria

My mother bought this property as her pied a terre here in Paris where I live.

I am and architect here in Paris and I help her to rent the apartment when she is not here.

Rizzoli Vittoria purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Rizzoli Vittoria chose Monnaie

We choose to buy this property because, we are Italian and for us Paris is Saint Germain.

My mother made part of her study here in Saint Germain and when I first arrived in Paris I lived not far from here.

The dream to have an apartment is the middle of the heart of Paris became true.

What makes this apartment unique

When you are in the apartment, you really have the impression to get in the real Paris.

The decoration goes very well with the style of the building and I could stay inside next of fireplace reading a book and looking out at the Parisian roofs.

Very cozy and warm.

We hope that You will love it as we do!

Perfect location. Wonderful flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Vittoria’s flat. Small but beautifully appointed in an historic building situated in our favorite part of Paris between the Seine and Rue St. Andre des Artes. Just a block from Place St. Michel. A perfect spot for our stay! Thank you, Vittoria, for being such a welcoming host. We will come again.

Creative design of this small apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and were impressed by the design of this very small space. Always quiet and kept cool during a hot day. We were sorry that we were not able to get two keys and, personally, after 5 days, we felt it was too small and looked forward to our next larger apartment. Also, it was inconvenient to open and close the sofa bed to make room in the living area.... very comfortable bed.

Cozy, well appointed apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this cozy and beautiful apartment could not have been more perfect! Close proximity to restaurants, museums, churches, cafes, but private, quiet setting. Kitchen and bathroom had everything needed for comfort. Pull out couch was extremely comfortable. Charm of old world elegance combined with redesigned unit and modern amenities made this a great choice for our five day stay in Paris. We would stay again without hesitation! Thank you for designing this beautiful space! Vittoria was so easy to communicate with through email and by phone. Staying here made our memorable trip to Paris that much better!

Perfect for 2!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The owner was in great contact the entire time, and met us at the apartment to show us everything we needed to know.

As others have stated, the couch bed is very nice and does not impact the rating of my review whatsoever. Other than that, the location is absolutely amazing! You are right in the thick of things, whether that be tourist attractions, or diving into a cafe with the locals.

Would definitely recommend to any couples that are headed to Paris.

Great location for popular sights as well, fun pedestrian street. Safe for solo travelers.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a week in this quintessential Parisian flat. Property sits on attractive residential street off a popular street with casual restaurants and close metro stop. Easy train ride from Charles De Galle. Nice updated kitchens and bath. Pull out couch was fine for myself or, couple. Nice balcony over looking European square. Very short walk up one flight of stairs after 2nd secured entrance. Linens provided for 1-2 people. I enjoyed the proximity to Museums and Luxembourg Gardens. Last day, I took the Paris by Mouth ‘ Left Bank Tour’ (fabulous) . Tour guide walked us in and out of some of the best places to find great food in Paris ( all around my apartment)! I wish I had stayed longer to use my refrigerator!

Central Location, Parking Nearby, Picture-Perfect, Quaint Parisian Flat

  • 5 of 5

Just as pictured! Small quaint apartment, with a comfortable feel that provides you that authentic Parisian-living experience! All amenities provided, excellent bathroom, bed comfortable, great neighbors, and upscale adjoining flats! It was magical to look across and see the neighbors decorating their Christmas trees, and we even made room for a tiny Paris sized Christmas tree in front of the fireplace! Great stay! Thanks for sharing and allowing us this one of kind experience!

Wonderful quarter, you Artistic Legacy Meets Modern Chic:

Put on your Sunday best and head over to St-Germain-des-Prés, one of the more swanky, upscale neighborhoods in Paris. Here, you’ll find locals outfitted in Louis Vuitton and Dior whether on their way to a business meeting or out for a stroll. Situated along the Seine River, the area is also an artistic hub, with some of the city’s most prestigious museums, art dealers and small galleries. Once a spot for existentialist thinkers like Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, this is the place to see and be seen, window shop for Swarovski crystal and take home a piece of modern art for your mantel.

getting Oriented:

The St-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood lines the Left Bank of the Seine and extends southwards towards the sprawling Jardin du Luxembourg. It is hugged by the lively Latin Quarter to the east and the Eiffel Tower district to the west.

Main Streets: Boulevard St-Germain, Rue de Seine, Rue de Rennes, Rue Bonaparte

Getting There and Getting Around:

To check out the area's many art galleries, get off at Metro St-Germain-des-Prés (line 4) and walk north towards the Seine. For power shopping or a bite to eat, cross the Boulevard St-Germain and head south, or walk east from Metro Sèvres-Babylone (line 10). If you get off at Luxembourg (RER B), go northwest through the garden to get to the heart of the neighborhood.

Neighborhood History:

The Benedictine Abbey of St-Germain-des-Prés dates to the 6th century. Only the church remains, but it is considered the oldest in Paris. In one of the side chapels, you can find the tomb of philosopher René Descartes.

Around the 19th century, the area was frequented by painters like Manet and writers Balzac and Georges Sand.

After World War II, St-Germain exploded into a hotspot for existentialist thinking, avant-garde theater, painting and jazz. Picasso, Sartre, De Beauvoir, Beckett and Charles Gainsbourg are some of the famous names associated with the area.

Places of Interest:

Jardin du Luxembourg: The expansive gardens and overlooking Senate belong to the Luxembourg Palace, and are a respite from busy Paris. Stroll along the perfectly manicured lawns and flowers or sail a toy boat across the pond. If you’re lucky, you might catch a weekend jazz concert under the pavilion. Also make sure to check out the Musee du Luxembourg, Paris' oldest public museum and a historical hotbed of the arts in the city.

Musée d’Orsay: This famous museum houses mostly French art from the mid-1800s to early 1900s, including an extensive collection of impressionist works by artists such as Monet, Renoir and Cézanne.
