Le Château Saint-Germain is an elegant and luxurious three-bedroom/three-bath apartment (or two-bedroom with separate studio) located in the very heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district of Paris with a view on the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and steps from the liveliest part of the quartier. Visitors to Paris who are lucky enough to make themselves at home here will be talking about their delightful stay for years to come and return as often as they can.
This gem will appeal to those looking for 3 separate bedrooms, each with it's own ensuite bathroom. The apartment can also be separated into a 2 bedroom unit plus a self contained studio. Each room is like a private hotel room with bathroom, full length mirror and blow dryer.
Located on the second floor (European, third floor American) of a 17th-century Hôtel Particulier (townhouse), the spacious rooms wrap around a central courtyard affording windows on all sides of the apartment with views of three streets and the courtyard. The apartment was renovated within the last few years and no detail was spared. Upon entering the foyer, you may choose to turn left to enter the open living room/dining room/kitchen, positioned on two living levels, adorned by columns, an 18th century stone fireplace, tall windows and a state-of-the-art contemporary kitchen. Furnishings are antique and elegant, but inviting, friendly and comfortable.
The all encompassing and spacious central core of the apartment is where everyone will want to be -- equipped with a large flat-screen TV, DVD player, high-speed Internet with Wi-Fi, IPOD dock (that can also be connected to your computer), fireplace and open kitchen where a full buffet can be served from the long butcher-block island. It's a perfect venue for entertaining and relaxing after a long day of sightseeing in the City of Light.
At one end of the dining room which comfortably seats eight, an original painted portrait of the 'lady of the manor' by American artist in Paris Kathy Burke, hangs in honor of the owner with an amused eye on her happy guests. From the portrait, to the left down the stone-walled corridor, you will find a luxurious suite with twin beds which convert to one king-sized bed, a shower, toilet, deep open bathtub with hand-held shower, heated towel rack and vanity with sink. Its windows overlook the courtyard for full calm and privacy.
On the opposite corner of the living room, an original 17th-century door leads you to the suite whose hand-carved woodwork and curved wall was discovered during the complete renovation of the apartment. From the windows on both sides of the room, you have a perfect view of the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and all down rue de l'Abbaye. Light pours in these windows onto the golden tones of the boudoir's decor of antique furnishings and Provençal fabrics. A contemporary shower with toilet and heated towel rack is adjacent and an additional antique sink/vanity accents the feminine room.
From the foyer, if you turn right from the main entrance, you find a laundry room with washer/dryer and further down the hall, the third bedroom suite.
