SAINT-GERMAIN-DS-P CHARMING BRIGHT SUNNY APARTMENT WITH A VIEW

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

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

I invite you to book your Paris stay in my stylish French apartment located on the Left Bank of the River Seine in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It's the perfect pied-à-terre, on one of the city's most delightful boulevards, right in the heart of Paris. Just steps away from the famous cafes like Les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp which were frequented by intellectuals and artists such as Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, Albert Camus and Pablo Picasso. Experience the freedom of having your own apartment in Paris.

It is 34 m2 with one bedroom, one bathroom, separate living room and comfortably accommodates 2 people. It has been refurbished in September 2011. It has a flat-panel TV, cable, DVD player, radio with mini-jack entry, phone, range, washer, microwave oven/convection oven and a high-speed Internet connection. It is located on the top (6th) floor, in a beautiful Haussmann building from the 1860's with NO elevator.

As a translator , I spent many years in big cities abroad, living in short-term furnished rentals. I bought this apartment in September 2011 and have tried to make it as pleasant and relaxing as possible for someone away from home.

My own apartment is in the neighborhood, rue Gay-Lussac, on the other side of Luxembourg Garden.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

You just have everything at your doorstep:an open-air traditional market, a supermarket, a pharmacy, restaurants and cafés, elegant and trendy shops, cinemas, the River Seine at one end of the street, Luxembourg Gardens at the other end,concerts in small churches, beautiful historical monuments and buildings everywhere, half a dozen different buses, 2 metro stations - and RER for easy access to airport.

I also have a special feeling for this area since I was lucky enough to live in the neighborhood when I was a student.

Back then, I had a room (but with no view ! ) between Sorbonne and Odeon; I Ioved to go to art-house cinemas and buy food at the open-air Buci market , which has now sprawled to the foot of the building rue de Seine.

Have a drink on the balcony ( or on the sofa in winter!) while watching the sunset against the steeple of Saint-Germain des Prés church and the laser light at the top of the Eiffel Tower

This apartment is located in one of the best parts of Paris! You can walk anywhere from this location. There is a Metro just a very short walk away. The Monoprix is just down the street. If you need an ATM the BNP is also just down the street. I would highly recommend this apartment. Anne-Marie is helpful, organized, and there for you if you have any questions. She speaks English as if it were her native language, however she is French and lives not far away. Like almost all apartments in Paris, there is no air-conditioning but we were there the end of May to June and did not need it. The small kitchen has everything you would need to be able to have meals in the apartment. There is a washing machine, so that you can pack lightly. It does have seven flights of winding stairs which can be exhausting after carrying luggage and groceries. There is no lift. We are almost 60 years old and were able to manage, however you must know that it is tiring to walk up all of those flights after a long day and night in Paris. The apartment has free Wi-Fi and free international telephone calls which is a huge bonus. The television has more channels then you will have time to watch. If you love Paris and want to be in a fabulous location in a very clean and cozy apartment then and I would highly recommend this one for you.

Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5
We had the good fortune to find this apartment for our anniversary trip to Paris. It was a pleasure working with the owner, Anne-Marie. She answered all of our questions before arrival, greeted us when we got there and gave us a brief tour of the neighborhood. The apartment is very clean, has lots of natural light and plenty of room for 2 people. The neighborhood and location were perfect for us. Boulevard Saint-Germain is a lively area. There are literally dozens of excellent restaurants, cafes & bistros in a 3 block radius. Bistro d'Henri was our favorite. Around the corner you'll find a coffee/pastry shop, a fruit market and a grocery store that also sells wine. The location, only a few blocks from the Seine, allowed us to walk to all the sights in Paris: Notre Dame, Eiffel, Louvre, Orsay, Rodin, Arc de Triomphe, Luxembourg Gardens, etc. etc. The apartment is very close to the metro and RER lines as well so getting to and from the airport was easy as were day trips to Reims via TGV and Versailles. Being in this apartment and in this neighborhood certainly contributed to the wonderful time we had in Paris. I would highly recommend staying here and I look forward to returning. Do note the apartment is on the 6th floor and there is no elevator. I'm 62 and had no problem with the stairs. I hope you get a chance to stay here, it really is the perfect location for a Paris vacation and for feeling Parisian, at least for a little while.

If you want the perfect Paris location with large light filled windows book this property! It is a great value! Walk everywhere and when needed the bus and Metro are very close by. Anne-Marie is great to work with and greeted us when we arrived. Grocery stores etc are just around corner. Many reviews have mentioned the stairs and there are a lot (136) but this never bothered us (age 67) since we usually left for the day and returned after dinner out or to stay in and have a light dinner at the apartment. The apartment is small but laid out well. It had everything we needed during our 30 day stay. We would not hesitate to book this apartment again. Thanks, Anne-Marie PS. make sure to go Marco-Pollo for the best Italian food to be found in any city!

Excellent Left Bank Apparment!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect for my month-long stay in Paris. The layout is concise and efficient but with large opening windows and a sunny view from the top floor the space feels larger than the floor area might suggest. The bathroom has been recently updated and the shower had just been tiled prior to my stay. I found having a clothes washer in the apartment to be very convenient and the kitchenette is certainly adequate for preparing a meal. As a student, having high speed WiFi internet access was definitely a plus.
The location was ideal for my stay. I was studying at the Alliance Française and I found the Odéon metro stop, which is just a short walk from the apartment, rather convenient for commuting to class. The neighborhood has many different options for dining with good variety for both cuisine and price. Being located in central Paris, many of the city’s tourist sites including the Louvre, Notre Dame, and the Jardin du Luxembourg are within walking distance from the apartment.
Lastly, I would like to say that it was a pleasure to be Anne-Marie’s tenant. She is very professional and was quite helpful both prior to my arrival and during my stay. Upon arrival she gave me a full tour of the apartment and even recommended some shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. She is well-traveled and speaks perfect English (and of course French too!) I would definitely stay at the apartment again and I would recommend the apartment to other visitors to Paris. Thank you Anne-Marie!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this charming Paris apartment was perfect. It's centrally located in a busy neighborhood, walking distance to the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens and the Seine, and to multiple Metro stations and bus stops. There's a grocery store a few doors down and many wonderful restaurants.

The apartment itself is small, but comfortable and well-appointed. The bed is firm and restful, the bathroom modern and the tiny kitchen has everything you need for light, convenient meals. We particularly appreciated being able to do our laundry in the apartment. There is a climb to the top floor, but we didn't mind it, and the beautiful view over the Parisian rooftops was worth it.

We were charmed by the photos and found the light, airy apartment to be exactly as advertised. Anne-marie is a wonderful hostess and we fully enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Lovely Apartment and Owner

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this lovely apartment for 10 days at the end of May. The photos do not really do it justice because it is much more light, airy and pristine than is evident from the photos. Even the bathroom towels have a delicate quality. Anne-Marie treats her renters as if they were her personal guests - she truly wants them to enjoy her apartment and she is extremely responsive to any request any time of day. This location, well described in other reviews, is unique in the number of cafes, shops, grocery stores, patisseries, etc. located within one or two blocks, in addition to two metro lines. And while there are many tourists to be found, the majority of occupants are Parisian. I've stayed in a number of different locations in prior visits to Paris and find this location to be exceptional. Yes, the steps are a challenge, particularly if you are a senior citizen, but Parisians have lived this way for centuries so visitors can surely take it for a few days!
