This apartment is in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area, which is walking distance from many of the things you want to see in Paris such as the Seine, Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, St. Sulpice, the Pont Neuf, the Garden of Luxembourg, and much else. It is also convenient to 3 metro (subway) stops. Despite that, the apartment itself is very quiet and just as described in the listing. The owner's instructions leading up to our arrival worked perfectly, and he had lots of good tips. Everything went off without a hitch. The place was clean, and everything worked. The free phone to the U.S. was key for us because my son was back in the States in camp, and the wifi worked fine. Incidentally we had a superb meal at the "Fish" restaurant (recommended by the apartment owner) which is just 3 blocks away. We also discovered a sandwich place called Cosi across the street from that restaurant which was perfect for our picnic excursions. In the Montmartre section of town (you'll need the subway for that one), we highly recommend the restaurant "Le Potager du Père Thierry". Also fun and no more than a 10 minute walk is the Polidor restaurant. We didn't realize it at the time, but it is featured in the movie "Midnight in Paris".
