Overview

6th Arrondissement St Germain des Pres Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Stairway to heaven

On top of the world

Patter up the steps to paradise, a bubble of purity just beneath the sun. This is Rue Séguier, occupying the top three floors of an 18th-century mansion so much a part of Paris history that it’s been classified as one of the city’s great monuments. And while there’s much of the original structure on show, this home has a personality that’s all its own, with a collection of well-loved tomes and a vibrant mosaic elephant. And though your neighbouring streets, the Boulevard Saint-Michel and the Boulevard Saint-Germain, might be illustrious, you’ll still find yourself amidst a constellation of intimate neighbourhood restaurants and cafés.

The luminaries

Your hosts spend much of their time in the sky, jetting between London, France and the USA. But Paris' Latin Quarter is where they feel wholly at home.

A step up

Should the magnificent views not prove quite enough, the dining space is dominated by a marvellous trompe l’oeil fresco of Montmartre’s rooftops, painted by your host’s father. Indeed, Rue Séguier delights in playing with height and space – a small ficus tree nestles in the window, while just steps away there’s a large, spectacular private staircase.

You have fireplaces and beams aplenty, yet these interiors are entirely modern, with a state-of-the-art kitchen, a pair of delectably decadent bathrooms and walls so white they might have been spun from the clouds.

About Owner / Property Manager

onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights.

Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room. And there's service to match.

Nobody wants to be a tourist, so our homes come with recommendations from the people who live in them. For everything else, we're here 24/7.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose 6th Arrondissement St Germain des Pres

The archetypal Paris endures in the Latin Quarter, not only for the enviable few who live here, but as a symbol of fiery intellectualism for a nation that prides itself on its contributions to philosophy, culture and political life.

The inhabitants simply refer to their neighbourhood as le quartier, and while other Parisians might, perhaps enviously, accuse them of snobbery, the locals can lay claim to the academic halls, cafés, cinemas and winding streets that birthed some of the most important movements of the last century, from existentialism to La Nouvelle Vague.

Local resident Ernest Hemingway and fellow members of the Lost Generation were harbingers of a cultural and intellectual wave that swept through the area during the 1920s. Soon after, existential philosophy was born from heated debates at local cafés between Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.

That countercultural spirit later engendered the May 1968 student protests, and these days Sorbonne students still stage occasional demonstrations. Local ciné-clubs spawned La Nouvelle Vague during the 1950s, and today’s Parisians still take their film seriously, drawing crowds to the local cinemas any given night of the week.

Some of Paris’ best markets, ethnic restaurants and salons du thé are found near Place Monge and in the streets near Rue Saint-Jacques. On weekends, the Jardin des Plantes and Jardin du Luxembourg invite with their open-air classical concerts, keeping fresh the areas cultural heritage.

What makes this apartment unique

Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.

Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There’s a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.

Once we’ve helped you settle in, we’re just a call away, 24/7. If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand.

And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
