This beautiful house in central Paris is located on the Left Bank, a five minute walk from Luxembourg Gardens and within walking distance from le Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. It is very quiet and safe.
The house has its own entrance in a nice, flowered yard and is distributed on four levels (1900 square feet) with a terrace overlooking the roofs. Living room, kitchen, dining room, and one bathroom are on the ground-floor, very large by American standards.
On the first-floor, two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed,the other with two single beds, one toilet and one shower. The single beds are regular beds but more suitable for teen agers or children as the room is not large.
On the second-floor, one master bedroom with a king-size bed, one separate toilet and one bathroom.
On the third-floor, another living room with TV and stereo and the terrace.
This contemporary, elegant, and recently renovated house is mostly convenient for any visitor in Paris. There are many wonderful restaurants, cafés, and shops around. Open-air markets for any one who likes to cook in the large and very well equipped kitchen. An ideal place to stay for the week.

Best place in Paris
Feel like a true parisian
We stayed at this beautiful home for a week in March 2015. It was wonderful. The unique thing about this home versus others we've stayed at via VRBO is that it is the owner's full time home. They leave for your stay so it is completely set up for daily living. That is very comforting and convenient. No shopping for the basics like salt, oil or coffee as it is all right there just like at your own home. The home is full of books and art. It has four levels so provides lots of space for each person. We especially loved the book case lined living room and the top floor den with terrace. The neighborhood is quiet and a great break from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Transportation is convenient with close access to bus, metro and taxis. A good choice of restaurants, a decent supermarket and a great boulangerie, patisserie are all in the square block area. Annette and Lucy couldn't have been nicer and attentive to all our needs. Highly recommend this for a home away from home in Paris.
This was our first experience with a HomeAway rental and we were not disappointed. My wife, two teenaged daughters and my wife's parents greatly enjoyed this spacious, clean and well equipped home, located in one of Paris' quiet neighbourhoods. Within easy access to train and subway stations, getting anywhere in the city was very easy. The home was also located within walking distance of a market which made it convinient to buy groceries for the meals we eat at home. This many leveled home had all the amenities we needed and the sleeping quarters comfortably accommodated two adult couples and two children. We were able to move one of the single beds to a small alcove which provided each child with their own sleeping quarters. Our interactions with the property owner were positive and responses to our requests and question, before and during our stay were very prompt and courteous. I can comfortably recommend this property to other renters.
We spent 5 days with 2 couples and 2 teen agers and the house was perfect. Lot of space, huge master bedroom, 2 perfect smaller bedrooms,wonderful beds, great showers and bathrooms, large living room, large and fully equipped kitchen where we cooked meals for 12 people including friends staying in Paris. It couldn't have been better!
Annette the owner was of great help, arranged for reservations in some fantastic non touristic restaurants and answered all the questions we had about best places to go. Art on walls and shelves is amazing.
We'll definitely be back!
Unfortunately, this apartment which is advertised as a 3 bedroom with 3 bathrooms is not suitable for three adult couples. The very small office that they substitute for a third bedroom is not an adequate bedroom for two adults. We had to put the desk chair which is with a desk in the office on the window still to shoehorn the two twin beds in a stagger fashion so we would have a way to get into and out of bed. I can see that the room could possibly be adequate for two young children but not adults. The bathroom that is associated with that third bedroom is down one flight of spiral stairs to the main floor with the kitchen and living room. The shower is a bathtub with a hand held wand with no enclosure to prevent spaying outside the tub. The toilet is in a separate room under a staircase with a minuscule sink and restricted headroom because of its location under the staircase. I feel it was a little deceptive to advertise that the third bedroom and bathroom would be acceptable to most adults especially Americans. Other than the major disappointment in the bedroom situation the apartment was adequate and the location was excellent.
my husband and our 4 children stayed in this gorgeous, classy home in the 14th arrondissement and felt right at home. the location couldn't have been better. we took the RER from charles de gaulle and walked right to the house. the subway and the bus were a 1/2 block away -- perfect location with grocery stores and cozy cafes close by. a real "paris" experience. we loved walking to luxemborg gardens each day and strolling the montparnasse boulevard. we enjoyed the large kitchen and dining area, the vast array of books and artwork (and the owner's taste in general!), the charming, quiet courtyard and even the entrance (which reminded us of the college gates at cambridge and oxford). the owner annette was wonderful and easy to work with -- very responsive and welcoming. we hope to go back!
Wonderful location, the real Paris, full of history and charm! Very convenient to transport, wonderful restaurants and cafes, museums, contemporary art and Montparnasse's artistic history! Feels like being at home, cozy and eclectic, lots of wonderful art and books, quiet and private-but in the middle of everything- like discovering a great hidden gem! Stairs might not suit older or disabled clients and some bathrooms are open to bedrooms or quite small but any lack in luxury (by USA standards) is worth it considering how interesting, convenient and homey the house proved to be. We will definitely return.
Shopping center is nearby, boulangerie at the corner of the street & open air market 5 minute walk, nice brasserie, middle priced like Chez Fernand to one-star fish restaurant like Chez le Duc are close by, Dozens of cinemas, many with English speaking movies are close by, le Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée Rodin are within walking distance
