My husband and I spent 2 weeks in this lovely apartment. The location and ambiance was perfect.
Across the street from the glorious Luxembourg Gardens and central to all of Paris, this charming apartment felt just like a home. I would describe it as cluttered elegance. It is obviously a loved in space full of books and art objects. We were very comfortable and felt like natives. We will definitely return to this space.

My wife and I travel to Paris about 4 times a year for many years and our favorite is the 6th. Christine's apartment is in the perfect spot for visiting Luxembourg Gardens and the many excellent restaurants nearby. The amenities of the apartment are great, very modern kitchen, nice view to courtyard, excellent bathroom and spacious living room. Our host was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to questions we later had. We highly recommend her apartment! One of the best we have stayed in.
Great location but unit is old and cluttered and uncomfortable.
Pros: Apartment is located right next to Luxembourg Gardens on a pretty quiet street. Unit is 4 floors up ( 3rd floor...American 4th floor) so we felt safe having the windows open for air. Building has key/codes to get in the main door and into the stairwell that leads to the apartment. Added to security feel.
Cons: Your view is of the complex courtyard and then the street.
You can see the gate to Luxembourg Gardens from the front window if you stand and look right. But basically no view from this apartment.
Also......the apartment is very old and cluttered. The furniture has holes in the leather so the only place to sit is on the couch. The shelves are filled with papers, books, miscellaneous lamps, etc. The bedding is old and not that comfortable. The dining chairs are hard and very uncomfortable. There is no radio or television, so bring your own entertainment.
Upon arrival, there are paper instructions ( which were helpful) but also a letter from the owner stating clearly to please not use her supplies or disturb her things as she also lives there. Hmm. I have stayed in many vacation owner rentals, and ALL have had supplies for the renters like dish soap, paper towels, shampoo/conditioner, bath soap, basic kitchen needs ( salt, pepper, ketchup, etc). And I've never been asked to not use or touch the owner's belongings. If the owner doesn't want things used, then I'd recommend locking them in a cabinet so renters do not use the items. Given most of the people renting this apartment are travelers, it would have been nice to have basic needs supplied ( like soap, shampoo, etc) . So if you stay here, bring ALL personal items and go buy all the basics ( paper towels, kitchen supplies, etc).
The owner did not greet us and there was no communication before our arrival as to how we would get the keys, etc. I emailed and texted the owner several times and had no response. So my daughter and I just showed up at the unit and fortunately a young man meet us ( not the owner) and showed up the unit.
Overall: while I liked the location and security of the building, for the price we paid I expected more attention to detail and a unit that was not so old and tired.
Sorry for your bad impressions-that thankfully you're the only one to express .. Your email has not reached me by the site and I should indeed have informed you of myself before your arrival. Nelson, my housekeeper, is used to receiving people for me and does it very well. However, reading your comment, I would recommend that you rent only empty and contemporary places, in order to be certain of obtaining satisfaction. .
Désolée de vos mauvaises impressions-que heureusement vous êtes la seule à exprimer.. Votre mail ne m'est pas parvenu par le site et j'aurais dû en effet vous informer de moi-même avant votre arrivée. Nelson, mon homme de ménage, a l'habitude de recevoir des gens pour moi et s'en acquitte fort bien. Cependant, à la lecture de votre commentaire, je me permets de vous recommander de ne louer que des lieux vides et contemporains, afin d'être certaine d'obtenir satisfaction. .
Wonderful Location and apt.
Wonderful location and the apartment was very nice. We would stay at Christine's apartment again. The building and the apt. are quiet.
Thanks, Christine for allowing us the use of your wonderful apt.
