Exquisite Penthouse Apt In The Center Of Latin Quarter : Best Deal For 4

Bedrooms 1
Space 506 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Penthouse - 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 2/4

This penthouse is incredible. Its large volumes and high roof, the brightness of the light and the quality of the decoration bring a unique touch. The decoration was kept pure to enhance the beauty of the volume. Perfect for a honeymoon, it may also sleep a 3rd adult or 2 kids on couches.

In the very center of the Latin Quarter, located close to the famous Panthéon, charming Place de la Contrescarpe, Sorbonne University, Saint Germain and the gorgeous Luxembourg gardens, this apartment offers a unique opportunity:

• It is an exceptional deal: the apartment was designed with extra care to comfortably sleep up to 3/4 guests (1 queen bed and 2 couches).

• It is located in a stone building constructed in the 1800s. The building was fully refurbished and redesigned by an architect in 2016. Four similar apartments sleeping for 3 to 6 guests depending on the apt are available in the same building.

The owners have preserved the traditional French apartment style with the beautifully exposed wooden-beams. The apartment is super functional. They have also preserved the elegant French terra cotta tiled floor with a variation of colour and thickness in certain parts of the apartment. This floor style dates back to around 150 years, if not more, and is of great historical significance.

On entering the apartment, one is greeted by a small corridor that serves the toilet to the right, then the well equipped kitchen, and leads to the huge living area.

The Living area offers a generous space. It has 2 windows with view over Paris and the surroundings. Two extra roof windows (with automatic shades) bring sky light. The apt opens on the charming Place Larue which offers various terraces. No building blocks the view: it is open on the Rue Sainte Genevieve, and the famous and beautiful courtyard of the Ecole Polytechnique (host to many international conferences of researchers).

On the right of the living area, a corner sofa and a table seat 4 guests. If needed, the couches may be used on request to sleep an extra adult or 2 kids. There is a wall mounted TV. Walls are decorated with a huge ancient Paris map. On the right the queen size bed is of top quality.

The bathroom is fully tiled with stone. It is on the left of the bed. It offers a bath as we as a large Italian type shower. The bathroom additional windows bring nice light and even sun in the morning.

Right down the building are located many shops, restaurants, bakeries, delies and more. We advise to try “Les pipos” restaurant, typical traditional French food.

The apt location is a perfect base to visit Paris : based in the heart of the old Paris, facing Notre Dame and the trendy Ile saint Louis with, at walking distance, the Marais where are the best clothes shops of Paris. The Sorbonne University, the famous Jardin des Plantes, the Pantheon, the arenes de Lutece, Luxembourg garden and the Cluny Museum of Medieval arts are all steps away. Cross the street and stroll along the banks of the Seine, enjoy a drink on one of the many barges or dance Tango in the “Tino Rossi” square in summer evening time.

It stands 10 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

For information : As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, calls to cell phones to specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators. WIFI is free and available in the entire apartment.

Neighborhood :

 The Latin Quarter area and the neighbouring Saint Germain area are very lively and full of restaurants, cafés, Jazz clubs, cinemas and trendy shops.

 The Latin Quarter is a very lively area. Walk to “Rue Mouffetard” & “place de la Contrescarpe” to have an outside dinner, stroll in the nearby and beautiful “Jardin du Luxembourg”, visit Ile Saint Louis, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Pantheon, the Sorbonne university, le “Paradis Latin” Cabaret and the Saint Germain area. One finds plenty of restaurants, shops, cinemas and many cultural sites to visit.

Gorgeous apartment, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely. Incredibly sunny, well laid out, tasteful color scheme and furnishings. The building itself is quite (indoors) with pleasant street sounds wafting up from below. The buzz of cafe and restaurant life, buskers in the public square, etc. The neighborhood is full of good restaurants and street markets. Fantastic cheese store right down the street, close to Metro and bus stops. There are a lot of steps to the 5th floor, but honestly, it's not a big deal. Oh, and the view! Sublime!

Wonderful apartment in a great location in the Latin Quarter

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Five was the perfect rental for us to explore Paris from. The apartment was well appointed and has a great view of Notre-Dame. The neighborhood was fabulous with tons of great bar and food options and had as good mix of locals, students and tourists. The arrival instructions were easy and the apartment came with great instructions. The location was close enough to walk anywhere in central Paris. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This was mine and my husband's first time in Paris and we couldn't have picked a more perfect rental. The apartment is exactly as advertised in the pictures; very spacious, clean, and a spectacular view of Notre Dame. Yes, there are 5 full flights of stairs to make it to the top, but it was well worth it. When you're walking around all day, a few sets of stairs doesn't really make a difference.

It was very easy to check in using the instructions sent by Jean-Noel; we had no problem locating the apartment or unlocking the mailbox. I absolutely loved the location we were in, we were surrounded by so many cafes and restaurants that offered so many different options for food. Our favourite cafes to eat at were Le Petit Cafe and La Village Rasonde. We found the servers to be very friendly and easy to talk to and the food was amazing.

The apartment is a quick 10 minute walk to Notre Dame and a 5 minute walk to the Pantheon; both of which I highly recommend seeing.

At night, the cafes would have live music which was always entertaining. It was nice to just open up the windows, look out to Notre Dame, sip some wine, and enjoy the music.

The only suggestion I would make is to provide 2 towels for each guest. We were there for 5 nights in total and there weren't enough towels for us to use.

Overall, I was incredibly happy with our rental choice. We loved the feel of being in the Latin Quarter and the ease of which we could walk to everything we needed to.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at this apartment in Paris. It was right around the corner from Notre Dame Cathedral, Luxembourg Gardens, the Pantheon and many delicious restaurants....all within an easy walk! The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay just like home. The owners were very helpful with an easy check in. I highly recommend this place for those who want to see Paris!

Very clean, nice space. Photos are accurate. Neighborhood is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The property itself was great for my two teenage daughters and myself. We were there during a heatwave, but the penthouse had a nice breeze when the windows were open and fans made it cool enough to sleep. The photos give an accurate description of the flat. Everything was clean, tidy and in working order. The owners were professional, and the check in process was simple. All the instructions made it very easy to check in and out. The pubs in the square beneath the flat were very active and fun. It was a great location, within walking distance to Notre Dame, Pantheon and Luxembourg Gardens. Lots of boulangeries, cafes, pubs, restaurants and gelaterias nearby. The only drawback is the spiral staircase - it is extremely narrow and not easy to climb with luggage. At the end of a long day in the city, climbing six flights of stairs was exhausting. However, we would rent in the building again.

Outstanding apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. We loved the view. We loved the area. We will return.

We booked this flat 2 weeks before arrival because our previous reservation was cancelled by the owner. We were give instruction on how to get into the apartment which is on the sixth level (the penthouse ). The instructions were a little difficult to decipher but we were successful. We climbed the stairs (90 of them) to the studio. It was a great room. Vaulted ceilings with two skylights and two windows one of witch was a french window which opened up the view you see on the left. It had a table with four chairs. The kitchen was well equipped.The bathroom had a sink and large shower and a bathtub with a window opening onto the courtyard. It is clean. The bed was comfortable with soft sheets.

Look below you and you see 7 cafes/restaurants, L'école Politechnique of the Sorbonne. Walk up Rue Descartes and it runs into the famous Rue Mouffetard. We love this area. Walk down Rue Descartes and you reach Boulevard Saint Germain . Walk one block further down and you reach the Seine and a great view of Notre-Dame de Paris and the Bouquinistes.

Our favorite thing to do at night is to open the two windows, place our chairs in front of them and have our nightcap overlooking the towers of Notre-Dame. You could almost imagine Quasimodo walking around his towers.

This is a lively, young student area. It can get noisy at night but the window does shut.

the only drawback are the steps. They are narrow and wrap around fan like. An elderly person would have trouble maneuvering these steps as well as the person having heavy large luggage.

So pack light.

To repeat-we love this place. Planning on returning next year.
