Location, location, location! A lovely boutique style apartment in St. Germain des Pres.
****Long-term renters welcome!! Rate includes cleaning service and all amenities. 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!
The apartment is very comfortable and quiet, located in the middle of a busy restaurant and bar area, but also close to the station. My only criticism would be the light - or lack of - light situation - there are 3 small windows that open onto an internal courtyard, but none that receive natural light from the outside, which can make the place feel a little claustrophobic. That aside, I would highly recommend this apartment and would happily stay again.
My wife and I, decided to spend our honeymoon in Paris and this was the property we decided to pass our time. The location and conditions of the apartment were superb. We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great time in Paris.
Valerie and Stacey were excellent hosts, we would visit them again.
What a WONDERFUL stay. Both Stacy and Valerie were responsive, helpful, and friendly. The location can't be beat- truly a gem in the neighborhood. Be aware this property is SMALL. It was comfortable for two, can't imagine doing it with any more than that. The kitchen fits one, the bathroom fits one, however the shower was large and generous, and the towel warmer was to die for. Warm and cozy, comfortable, some noise from outside in the mornings when they were cleaning. Safe and secure- felt so fortunate to have stayed here!
I love the neighborhood and I love ease of living alone in the apartment. Everything was so nicely provided. I missed having a window in the living area, but for two weeks it was fine. Everything was attractive, comfortable.
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.
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!
