BEAUTIFUL, CALM, LIGHT APARTMENT .... MUST SEE !! (PERFECT LOCATION)

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

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This beautiful apartment is literally situated in one of the best districts and streets in Paris!

Filled with light and with a feeling of calm & serenity, this apartment exudes history and charm. The building dates from the 16th Century, the famous French revolutionary Marat lived in this building and Picasso lived and worked in the building next door.

Right opposite the apartment are two of the best French restaurants in Paris and in one is the place where the young King Louis XIII was crowned one hour before the death of his father Henry IV (see photos).

We have just completely refurbished the apartment with great effort and taste and there is a brand new kitchen and a beautifully spacious bathroom with a very large and powerful shower. You will also find a once again brand new King size bed that is extremely comfortable with 100% Egyptian cotton linen with a high thread count. There is a flat screen TV, hi-fi, high speed wireless internet and DVD player as well as an ipod connection. The apartment is fitted with a secure access code for your security. Set back from the street it also looks onto a very quiet inner courtyard so it is completely silent yet just seconds from all the vibrant atmosphere of St Germain. Furthermore, it is a one minute walk from the Metro St Michel that links you directly to the airport CDG and the Gare du Nord so it extremely easy to get to.

Rue des Grands Augustins is a wonderfully quiet street with almost no traffic as it is so narrow. At one end you have the river Seine with spectacular views over the famous Eglise de Notre Dame. On the other end of the street the winding magical streets of the historic St. Germain unfold. The bars, restaurants, tea shops and boutique shops are all within a stones throw of the apartment. You are just 3/4 minutes walk from the famous Rue de Buci its famous flower market and endless delicious brasseries which spill over onto the street. The Boulevard de St Germain , famous for its extensive clothes shopping is again only a couple of minutes walk. There is an organic supermarket around the corner and furthermore all the essential amenities such as Pharmacies, food markets and supermarkets are all within very close proximity.

This really is a gem of an apartment and anyone who rents it, has always been be very happy here!

I am married to a Frechman Jerome and together him and I live more or less between London and Paris. I am British but originally from New York in the USA although I have lived almost my entire life in the UK. We have two young children, our daughter Noa who is 7 yrs old and a little boy Oskar who is 3 years old. We are both passionate about Paris and this is very much a family run business run entirely by Jerome and I.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

We bought this apartment in St Germain because there is really no other area like it. Some people refer to this area as the 'Golden Triangle' of Paris as it is the most sought after area with all of its history and charm. St Germain has a wonderful combination of rambling magical streets with some of the best restaraunts in Paris whilst also having the Boulevard de St Germain with all its famous clothes shops and Brasseries. It is also directly linked to both the Gare du Nord and the major airports by train.

To stay in this apartment is to stay in a wondefully quiet and cosy apartment that is also very bright and airy. It is the best location in Paris with the River Seine at the end of your street and all the most famous bars and restaurants of Paris on your doorstep. Picasso used to live on this street as well as the famous French revolutionary Marat.

This apartment is in the perfect location one block south of the Seine and close to Ponte Neuf bridge, in the center of Paris. My daughter and I just spent 2 weeks here and we loved it! The apartment is up 3 flights of narrow stairs but we loved the exercise after indulging in (too many) delicious pastries. The apartment is filled with light, has a full kitchen and a nice bathroom. It looks exactly like the photos. There is free Wifi and it faces an inner courtyard with no street noise. Pierre, the manager met us when we arrived, dragged my suitcase up those stairs (Merci Pierre!) and was quick to respond to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who can manage the stairs and wants to be in the very center of the action. There are 2 amazing restaurants on the same street and we had no problem walking to all parts of Paris from the apartment. The apartment is very small but comfortable and it worked for us because we were out every day. It was a wonderful trip and we would stay here again the next time we travel to Paris! This was my first time using VRBO and I am very happy with the results. I will definitely use this service again. We had no problems at all and the entire experience was a pleasure!

GREAT, QUIET LOCATION

Had a grand stay in Paris, and the apt was very for walking the city. All appliances operated, and everything was neat and clean. Only drawback would be 3 flights of stairs, but that is pretty standard.

GREAT LOCATION, COMFORTABLE ROOM, AND GREAT SERVICE!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you, Dorrie and Pierre, for helping make our trip a wonderful stay. We found the apartment to fit our needs, perfectly. Great shower, the bed is very comfortable, and the apartment is very clean. The location is fantastic and is within easy walking distance of many of the "must-sees" in Paris. The area is filled with countless cafes and shops. I think it is one of the best areas to relax and enjoy Paris life. Lastly, I wanted to thank Pierre for helping us with a little family emergency. He went well above and beyond what you would expect someone to do. Thank you so much! We would definitely stay here, again.

GREAT LOCATION; NICE APARTMENT; SOME RESERVATIONS

  • 4 of 5
This apartment has the perfect location, very close to Notre Dame, the Seine, restaurants, Metro, Pantheon, etc. It is a very sunny apartment, and well appointed. Tiny, but functional kitchen area. Free phone calls to the US, too.

Important note. Getting to the apartment requires a steep climb of 59 steps up an ancient, narrow spiral staircase. The steps are very old, uneven, slick wooden stairs. It's a bit treacherous, and getting a heavy or large bag up or down is even more so. Not for the faint of heart.

Only complaint - though we arrived on time, the property manager was not available when we arrived. We had to track him down on his cell phone, which itself took some trial and error to figure out which prefixes needed to be dropped on the international call. We had to wait outside the building in a light drizzle for over 30 minutes. This really shouldn't happen, and especially when the travelers are completing a 15-hour trip. Otherwise, the property manager was friendly and helpful during our stay.

GREAT LOCATION, COMFORTABLE STAY, FREE WIFI

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay and experience Paris. My husband and I stayed here for 7 days in February and I'm so glad we picked this apartment. It's a 2 minute walk to the metro. Close to restaurants and activity but also quiet at night. Comfortable bed and nice living arrangements, very well maintained. The manager was easy to contact and very helpful but also gave us our space. The free wifi was a must for planning out our days. I would definitely stay here on our next trip to Paris and recommend others do so as well!

LOCATION REALLY IS EVERYTHING!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first trip to Paris, and I have to say my biggest worry was where to stay. It took me 3 months to research and make a decision...I am SO glad we chose this apartment! Staying Left Bank, in the 6th arrondissement, right "next door" to the Latin Quarter (5th arrondissement) was PERFECT!

My husband and I purchased the 6 day Paris Pass, partnered with this apartment made for an amazing vacation. I have to note that we were not prepared for the stairs leading up to the apartment, but eating all the food made it balance out...very narrow, steep, and many steps...WOW!

The apartment itself was okay. We were neither impressed or disappointed...it was efficient. We stayed for 8 nights and very quickly realized why it is truly a gem...the location. You step out the front door and the Seine River is to the right and tons of restaurants and shops to the left. Everyday we would discover new things in our neighborhood we had not seen.

Metro(s), major landmarks/tourists sites, shopping, and did I mention restaurants. We had so many choices for fare and price range. I would recommend this apartment for 2 people...the bed was SUPER comfy.
