Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Saint-Germain-des-Prés - 1-bedroom jewel in St Germain

Fabulous location in the 6th district, one block from the Seine

Location, location, location! A lovely boutique style apartment in St. Germain des Pres.

****Long-term renters welcome!! Great rates!!****

This lovely one bedroom apartment has been redone to high standards. As it is small, we wanted to create a cozy, romantic, Parisian atmosphere. We've used stripes, warm colors and natural materials such as granit and hardwood floors to create a classic, romantic effect.

Enter the building using the door code and go past the mailboxes through the long hallway with exposed stone walls. The gate at the end of the hallways also opens with a code. Go through the gate and the apartment is the first one on the left. Facing you as you enter the apartment is the striped burgundy colored salon with two comfortable armchairs, a small coffee table, a lighted niche with books, a closet and a portmanteau for hanging.

To the left of the entrance is the fully-equipped kitchen with a granit worktop, an eating area at the end, a refrigerator, combination washer-dryer, small oven, microwave, stovetop, and dishwasher. We've recalled the burgundy color theme with the kitchen cabinets. As we love coffee, you have two choices: the Bodum French Press or the Nespresso maker. There is also a tea kettle. The kitchen is stocked with some basic items for your use: salt, pepper, coffee, sugar, tea, oil and vinegar. There is also high quality Brabantia cookware (which you may not need to use much given the almost overwhelming choice of restaurants in the area!).

Across from the kitchen is the bathroom tiled floor to ceiling with extra large square tiles to create a sense of space and harmony. There is a state of the art, aesthetic water heater (details are important!), Duravit sink and WC, and a large Italian tiled shower with a thermostatic tap. The bathroom was designed for maximum comfort in a small space.

To the left of the living room is the bedroom, the largest room in the apartment. Lighter stripes decorate the walls, and the high wrought iron English bed fits perfectly into the space. We also chose this bed so that you'd have space to store your luggage underneath.

We've also included a small English antique commode and a comfortable two-seater sofa if you'd like a second relaxation area. There is cable TV and Wifi of course, and the bedroom looks out onto a bright courtyard. The thick cotton curtains block out the light even though there isn't much at night, given the fact that the apartment is situated between two courtyards.

The atmosphere of the building is quite friendly and the neighborhood is fantastic. We'll leave a detailed apartment guide in the property, but we'd like to mention the fact that you are really in the heart of “everything”. If you turn left and then right at the end of the street, you find yourself on the rue Guenegaud next to The Seine. Cross over the Pont Neuf bridge and you're on the Right Bank. You're also a few blocks away from the Institut de France, the dome of which you can see when you walk out of the building. We could go on and on about the location.

If you turn right when leaving the apartment and go to the end of the street, you will find yourself on the famous rue de Buci with it's open air market, cafes, shops and such a lively atmosphere of what we call “Le Vieux Paris”. You can also head up a few more meters and hit the Boulevard St. Germain with its cinemas, shops and people-watching cafes..... Continue from there either straight to the chic St. Sulpice area or turn left instead and head towards St. Michel... The possibilities are endless.

We hope to welcome you to our apartment soon!

We actually had 2 stays here before and after a train trip to Barcelona. There are bars and cafes all around this apartment so most nights we didn't make reservations but walked the streets and over to the Latin Quarter just a few streets away where it was not a problem finding a great place to eat. The apartment is behind 2 separate gates that have keypads for entry so we felt very safe and away from the hustle and bustle of the active street out front. The apartment had everything we needed and it was nice to have Valerie meet us upon arrival to go over anything we may need during our stay. We speak very little French but were able to communicate with almost everyone we came into contact with in the area at restaurants and bars. This was a great apartment for our stay and we will rent from Stacey again in the future.

Beautiful apartment located in the perfect area!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Paris was magical! Valerie and Stacey were so responsive to all of my messages and provided such thorough details for travel and arrival to the apartment. The apartment is exactly as its displayed within the pictures. It's small but perfect for two people. I cannot speak highly enough of the location! It's less than a 5 minute walk to the metro and within walking distance to so many locations. I don't want to stay anywhere else but here when visiting Paris again!

The place was in a perfect location. Decorated really cute and all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

The space is small and I would say fine for two people. Valerie met me and was an amazing host. There was a problem with the TV and wifi but she did her best to fix it. Evidently it was an issue with the provider and out of their control. The bath and kitchen was updated and perfect. I would highly recommend staying here.

Excellent stay in a superb neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Valerie was very nice settling us in when we arrived. The apartment was exactly as described in the listing. One downside was that the Wi-Fi didn't work with our mobile phones- most likely due to banding issues? (We're from Australia).

Would recommend this apartment as it is charming and close to all amenities.

Fantastic location close to shops, markets, restaurants in a beautiful area, very compact and clean.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in the perfect location to see all the sites of Paris - many in easy walking distance from the apartment. Communication with Stacey and Valerie was professional and easy. They are very welcoming and extremely helpful. The apartment is very compact and clean and has a new kitchen and bathroom. We loved our stay in Paris.

Excellent place - excellent location - and an even better host!

  • 5 of 5

This is a belated review from my stay in Paris at the end of May. Stacey was an incredible host, very responsive and just made my stay so comfortable after a long business trip. Valerie met me at the apartment on the night of arrival. She was so warm and welcoming - took her time to show me the apartment, give me some recommendations of places to eat in the neighborhood, and even taught me a little french! The checkout instructions were so easy and friendly. The place was so beautiful - on the first floor, nice kitchen that was really well stocked, beautiful bathroom and comfortable living room and bedroom. Anyone that is familiar with Paris knows how good of a location this - central, 3 minute walk to the metro, and also has a great wine bar right across the street. I really can't say enough good things about this place - if it is available, then take it! Thanks Stacey and Valerie - hope to stay with you again next time.

Location

Car: not necessary

In the heart of St. Germain des Pres, one block from the Seine river and famous restaurants and cafes. One block from the rue de Buci. Walk to the Pont Neuf and the Right Bank in 5 minutes. A mythical, wonderful location in the heart of the 6th district.
