THE BEST VIEW IN PARIS ON SEINE RIVER & NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL

5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY BEFORE INQUIRING

Saint Michel is in the Latin Quarter, an area in the 5th and parts of the 6th district of Paris, on the Left Bank of the Seine river, nearby the Sorbonne University.

Known for its lively atmosphere and bistros, the Latin Quarter is home to several higher education establishments besides the university itself, such as the Ecole Normale Superieure, the Ecole des Mines de Paris, the Schola Cantorum, and the Jussieu University Campus.

The area gets its name from the Latin language which, as the international language of learning in the Middle Ages, was once widely spoken in and around the University.

Today the Left Bank is considered as the city's most romantic and fashionable district mixing day and night life.

If you take a stroll you can easily find tons of restaurants, bars, pubs, cinemas, music and festivities in the area directly behind the building. Or you can go shopping on the Boulevards Saint Michel & Saint Germain. Or simply visit the booksellers on the banks.

You are in very town center and all the famous spots are amazingly close : the Seine river, the Latin Quarter, Saint Germain des Pres, the Saint Louis island, the Marais, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sainte Chapelle, the Luxembourg gardens, the Jardin des Plantes, the Louvre Museum, the Orsay Museum, and so much more...

The apartment is very easy to reach:

- By RER B if you arrive by airplane (Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports)

- By Metro Line 4 if you arrive by train (Gare du Nord or Gare de Lyon)

- A Taxi station is just in front of the building

The location of the apartment is FANTASTIC, overlooking the Seine river and opposite to the Notre Dame Cathedral.

The apartment benefits of a BREATHTAKING VIEW: open the three sets of windows (all DOUBLE GLAZED and high quality sound proofing, which will assure you an excellent night sleep) and just marvel at the views of the Seine going by, and the awesome views of the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral on the next corner. Seriously, this could be the best view in Paris and will continuously take your breath away, both day and night. No wonder why, since 1991, the banks of the Seine river belong to the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites.

This apartment definitely has the ‘Wow’ factor, you will never forget your trip to Paris for this view alone. With a glass of wine and good company you won’t need to be anywhere else to experience the most romantic and beautiful city in the world.

We put a lot of effort to offer an elegant decoration and a lot of storage space and we believe we succeeded in creating a fantastic love nest for honeymooners.

The apartment is equipped with a high quality convertible sofa, providing an excellent sleep thanks to its 200x140x14cm anti allergic foam matress.

You’ll also find a 46 inches ultra flat screen TV which will blow you away, offering a truly unique viewing experience as well as a multimedia access to your laptop.

Once the booking will be confirmed you'll receive a 40-page instruction booklet to let you familiarize with the apartment, its equipment and the neighborhood. At your arrival we will personally check you in and we'll spend about 20/30 minutes with you to explain how all the appliances operate and to answer to any questions you might have. We'll also be available during your stay, should you encounter any difficulties. A bottle of french wine will be offered too.

Henry Matisse (31/12/1869 - 03/11/1954) and Albert Marquet (27/03/1875 - 14/06/1947) two of the best known french artists of the 20th century and leading figures in modern art, both lived in the nearby building (19, Quai Saint Michel) and painted several views they could see from their studio window, the very same view you’ll enjoy during your stay!

Payment by PayPal accepted.

SIMPLY AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
I am so late in this review as we went at the end of January. My partner and I stayed here for 10 days celebrating our 10 year anniversary. Every second was perfect. I am not sure where to start. The apartment is in the ABSOLUTE perfect location. When you get off the train from CDG, you can SERIOUSLY take an elevator to street level and basically be steps from the entrance to the building. A taxi stand is directly outside the front door of the building. So many cafe's, shops and markets just steps away. The first day we arrived we wanted to get familiar with the neighborhood, the Latin Quarter. WOW!!! Simply amazing. Every single type of food you can imagine is here. We went to the market and bought our staple, WINE, cheese, milk, produce, etc. By the 2nd day, we truly felt so comfortable with our neighborhood, we felt like Parisians. We could walk along the Seine, or check out the Marais. The Louvre, Champs de Elysee, incredible shopping, and cafes were either within walking distance or a stop away on the Metro. Every morning we would walk half a block and have breakfast at Le Depart Saint-Michel Cafe, where everyone was so amazing. They helped us with our french and had "our" table at the window ready every morning with Mimosas waiting.

Now for the apartment itself...ahhhhhhhhhh. We started missing it when we boarded the plane to go home. The blue door welcomed us each time we arrived "home." The building is situated discreetly between shops on a main street on the Seine. You do have to walk up several flights of stairs, but it is worth it.All modern amenities.Beautifully decorated.Modern.The bed is a sofa pull-out,but you would never know when sleeping.Open the 3 double door windows and the Seine and Notre Dame are right there.BREATHTAKING.Not exaggerating,we felt like we were Parisians, this was our home.

Federico is so awesome to deal with from beginning to end.Seriously he is AWESOME!Will def stay here again and recommend to anyone!!!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely studio apartment in a great location. It is located on the third floor of an old updated building with lots of character. The building is close to a multitude of restaurants and cafes, and everywhere is easily walkable. The trip from either of the airports couldn't be easier as the nearest metro stop, St Michel /Notre Dame, is on the RER B line that links the two airports. As another reviewer pointed out, there is an elevator that takes you from the RER B platform to a little alley (rue Xavier Privas) literally twenty steps from the front door to the apartment building. I believe it is "Sortie 6" from the platform. Very handy with heavy bags to /from the airport.

The apartment is comfortably equipped and very secure. The owners have made sure that pretty much everything you'll need is available (kitchen items, toilet paper, etc.., and there was even a welcome bottle of wine to greet us. The sofa bed was pretty comfortable (medium comfort for a bed, but very comfortable for a sofa bed). The bathroom is fine, though it's hard to have a shower without getting everything wet as in typical French fashion there isn't a shower curtain. The short little hip tub has high sides so an older person might find it hard to get in and out. And the toilet is a macerating type so flushing is a noisy affair to say the least, but probably required to not stress out the no-doubt old plumbing in the building.

All in all a great spot, and so much better than a hotel room. We had a wonderful time, and my only regret is we only had a week and not a month there.

CHARMING APARTMENT AND PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It overlooked the Seine River and Notre Dame. The kitchen is fully equipped and we were able to enjoy cooking some of the local ingredients on some of the nights when we did not feel like going out to dinner. The apartment is very clean and actually exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend this apartment. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

PERFECTLY PARIS

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had long planned our trip to Paris and chose this apartment for its central location and the views. We were not disappointed. The location is perfect. We took the RER train from Charles De Gaulle to St. Michel station and an elevator brought us up to the street level just outside the apartment. St. Michel is also a major intersection for the underground system, so it's easy to go anywhere in the city. There's also plenty to do and see within easy walking distance, including some excellent sidewalk dining.

The owner, Federico, was quick to answer any question I had and provided an info package that clearly described all the amenities in the apartment as well as sites and services in the surrounding neighborhood. When we arrived, we were met by Elsie, the apartment manager. She showed us around the apartment, explained how the appliances worked and answered any questions we had.

The apartment is small by American standards, but is quite comfortable. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable and the double glazed windows kept the noise from the street to a minimum. It is on the fourth floor (third floor to Europeans) with no elevator, but we didn't find the climb difficult.

The best part of this apartment IS the view. It overlooks the Seine and has a great front view of Notre Dame. We would sit at the open window with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and watch the book sellers, the people and boats go by. It was wonderful. Now when we tell friends about or trip, we talk about when we had our apartment in Paris (if only for a couple of weeks).

We hope to return to Paris some time at a later time of the year, and we'll definitely stay here when we do. Thanks Federico and Elsie. You helped make our dream trip memorable.

A VIEW AND SO MUCH MORE

  • 5 of 5
As much as we loved the view and the incredible location, we were also extremely impressed by the quality and elegance of this wonderful apartment. It was impeccably clean upon our arrival. The bed and the furniture were very comfortable and the appliances and amenities were first rate. Owner Federico and his manager were a joy to work with prior to and during our visit. They handled all the little details, including meeting us promptly upon arrival, providing a user-friendly guidebook, and showing us where to stock up on groceries. They even made arrangements for us to keep our luggage at the apartment a few hours after our check out time. It was a pleasure to be hosted by a team of professionals that took care of all the details so we could focus on enjoying our stay in Paris. I would most strongly recommend this apartment to any couple thinking about visiting Paris.
