LAVISH 1050 SQ. FT. APARTMENT STEPS TO LUXEMBOURG GARDENS AVAILABLE LATE MAY

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

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Due to a last minute cancelation late May is open.

This is my second home. It is more a home than a rental.

I chose this apartment for its location. It is only steps to the Luxembourg Gardens entrance where there are pony rides, a super children's' playground, a world famous puppet theater, tennis and basketball courts, a jogging track, 'petanque' players, chess matches , a huge fountain and a carousel. It feels like home, not a rental, because it is my home when I'm in Paris.

If you have young kids this location next to the Gardens is a must. They will discover the Gardens just as my son did -- feeding the ducks and fish in the fountain with a fresh 'baguette', sailing a boat, riding the carousel and spearing iron rings, swinging on the ropes in the playground, watching a world-renown puppet show and riding the ponies.

We are a block from Gertrude Stein's former apartment on 27 rue de Fleurus. Picture Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Hemingway and other artists just around the corner having an aperitif before they stroll to the Montparnasse brasseries. You can't beat the location.

This two bedroom, two bath, two balcony, spacious luxury apartment is in Paris' most desirable quarter known for its peaceful central location. You will enjoy quiet full night's sleep in the cozy rear of the building. There is no noise coming from our narrow one-way street. Two coded security doors to the apartment and a full-time concierge insure safety. A brief walk takes you to the Luxembourg Gardens entrance, world-reknown gourmet restaurants (Coupole, Dome, Lutetia, Helene Darroze), Latin Quarter cafés, Montparnasse, St. Sulplice Church, the Odeon theater, the Raspail open air market, gourmet food and high fashion shopping at Bon Marche, the Alliance Francaise, Poilaine (best bakery in Paris), theaters, Saint-Sulplice church, the Musee D'Orsay, Eiffel Tower, Boulevard St. Germain, movies and other monuments. Our scenic street set the stage for a recent French 1920's period movie called 'Les Faux Monnayeurs'.

Joe, our English speaking local manager, meets and greets visitors with a smile, helps orient you and can coordinate various services including baby sitting, cleaning and food delivery.

We are a few blocks from two police stations. The neighborhood is extremely safe because we are near the French Senate where security is ever present.

Everything you need from green grocers, pharmacies, bakeries, gelato and pastry shops, cafes, tabacs, hairdressers, a late night grocery store, movies and theater are all within a few minutes walk.

Three metro stops, five bus lines and a taxi station are close to the apartment. The location affords easy access to the entire city and its monuments.

The 'beaux-arts' building was built in 1900 with high ceilings and elaborate wall/ceiling moldings. The fifth floor apartment with an ELEVATOR is a spacious 1075 square feet and has two balconies.

Why do I say 'luxury'? The decorator designed apartment is furnished with expensive antique furniture, oriental carpets, fine bone China, original oil paintings and Japanese woodblock prints. An artist painted a mural in the WC. In 2010-11 I completely REMODELED TWO BATHROOMS and installed a JAPANESE WASHING TOILET. The drapes are custom-made heavy velvet. In the European tradition, one bedroom's wall covering is blue velvet.

The apartment is well-appointed with all modern conveniences. The kitchen is brand new and features the highest quality built-in appliances by Miele and Bosch and a NESPRESSO COFFEE MACHINE. We have top-of-the-line cooking utensils, pots, pans, 500 thread count sheets, bath sheets, luxurious bathrobes, silver candlesticks, 19th century gilded mirrors, an antique mantle clock, board games and lots of reading material for rainy days. Everything is BRAND NEW except the antique furniture. The apartment is wired with WiFi and two laptops connected to FIBER OPTIC CABLE, 2 large FLAT PANEL TV's, a BOSE sound system and FREE WORLDWIDE PHONE SERVICE (except Africa and South America), an IPHONE DOCK to the stereo and a cell phone. There are also two new AIR CONDITIONING units.

We also provide a GPS navigator to help you around the city and countryside should you travel. You do not need to bring guidebooks, hairdryers, converters, computers , an iron or umbrellas. Mac or PC ? We have both. A VIDEO DESCRIPTION IS ON YOU TUBE '5 minutes walk from Paris apartment'

You will enjoy your stay. We want you to return.

I KEEP THE CALENDAR CURRENT, PLEASE USE IT.

I first fell in love with Paris when I attended the American University in Paris. Now I am on the board of trustees of AUP and am fortunate to have my own apartment in the 6th. I have had two careers, first as a US diplomat, now as a private banker. I plan soon to work remotely from my apartment. Eventually I intend to retire in Paris and this will be my second home.

Peter de Castro purchased this apartment in 2008

Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. My grandparents spent many months in at a hotel two blocks from this apartment and I visited them there. Now this is my second home.

The proximity to Luxembourg Gardens was a dream of mine-- to leave my apartment and play tennis in the middle of a park in the center of Paris!

Access to Luxembourg Gardens, jogging in the park, free tennis courts, organic open air market, central location, restaurants, 'Bon Marche' best shopping, Alliance Francaise, Gertrude Stein's former neighborhood.

A Parisian Jewel That Will Capture Your Heart

My cousins and I stayed in this beautiful fourth-floor apartment last October 2013 and loved it so much we are returning October 2014. It is simply charming and centrally located near shops, farmer's markets, restaurants, parks, museums and transportation. It's almost magical.....the airy light-filled spaces perfectly capture the romantic ambiance of Paris while visitors still enjoy all the modern amenities we're used to back home. The high ceilings make the apartment feel spacious while the antique Parisian décor and original art welcome guests and make them feel at home. I would recommend this apartment without reservation....it will not disappoint!

Superb!!

Since you are reading this review, you must have been impressed with the owner's description of his apartment. Well, his description is on the money. The apartment is all he says it is and more. My wife, two college aged daughters and I spent a fun filled week there earlier this month. We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations at 8 rue Huysmans. There are no surprises unless you expect the accommodations to be less than advertised. The owner will arrange for the manager, Joe, to meet you at the apartment when you arrive. Joe, a kind, gracious and resourceful guy, speaks the King's English and will give you an instructional tour of the apartment. He will let you know of his availability throughout you stay in the event there are problems. The living room is warm and comfortable. The owner has hung impressive 20th century art throughout the apartment. The bedrooms are creatively decorated and have very comfortable beds. Actually, we had a hard time getting out of those beds every morning. The kitchen has built-ins with modern and functional appliances. You will find hair dryers, computers, telephones, converters, umbrellas, guide books and more in the apartment. The neighborhood is really cool--and safe. We found bakeries. bistros, ice cream, Luxembourg Park and much more, including G20, a more than adequate market for all of you needs. And you will love the Metro stop that is a three minute walk from the apartment. From there, you can travel anywhere. Learn it and use it. All I can say is that our family, when we go back, will definitely rent this apartment again. You will do the same. You cannot go wrong here.

Just returned from a wonderful week in Paris and absolutely loved this apartments. Well appointed, well maintained, central location with easy access to the Metro. Could not have been more pleased with our stay. All the comforts of home with no worries. Spacious accommodations, comfortable beds, pillows, linens and towels. You just need to show up. The apartment exceeded my expecations and would recommend this to anyone looking for a real Parisian experience. Plenty of restaurants, pastry shops, shopping all within a nice walk or metro ride. You won't go wrong here. The elevator is small but the stairs gave us good exercise every day! A great way to start of the New Year! Bonne Annee!
