My name is Vilay. I love Paris especially the Latin Quarter. I live here since 1981 but I used to be a traveler once ! I will be glad to great you and give you useful tips to make your stay as nice as possible depending on your interests ! My 2 boys, Aloun 27 a professional dancer, Nayan 17 at his last high school year, grew up in this nice and safe neighbourhood.

Vilay Marchal purchased this apartment in 1981

We are located in the center of the ancient and most beautiful part of Paris, The Latin District. It has a beautiful and green environment with 3 main gardens : Jardin des Plantes at 50 meters, les Arênes de Lutèce the roman arenas at 50 metres, Jardin du Luxembourg at 10 minutes walk, Notre Dame and Bastille are at 10 minutes walk. We also have a very good transport connection : 2 metro lines (7 and 10) and Le Louvre or Opéra are at 12 minutes away by metro. It also has 2 bus lines which allows a direct connection to Bastille, Marais, Louvre or Montmartre.

We are located near the Campus of Jussieu. The neighbourhood is typically French, lively and cool. Lots of cafés, restaurants, street markets etc. The French writer Georges Perrec used to live at this address ' 13 rue Linné ' and Douglas Kennedy's novel 'The woman in the fifth' took place here too. The apartment has a flowered balcony and a nice view. It's at 10 minutes walk to the Seine where you can stroll or jog or enjoy dancing rock and roll or Tango during the summer evenings or have a picnic there and visit the free open air sculpture museum.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough about this nice, roomy, interesting apartment. Beds were comfortable, two small balconies were fun to step out on, living space very accommodating. Best of all is the helpfulness of the owner. Easy email communication, easy deposit and return of deposit (cash at the end of the stay) and help with a situation which came up while we were there. Fully recommend this nice apartment on a quiet street close to bars and restaurants and only 1.5 blocks from the Metro.

CHARMING APARTMENT IN A PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for 6 days at the end of July. The apartment is very centrally located in the Latin Quarter, with easy access to the Metro. We would just tumble out of the apartment, walk a block or so, and jump on the Metro. We did this a lot and so got to see a lot of Paris. There is a nice little bakery right across the street and some interesting shops nearby. The Latin Quarter is a very lively area, and although you could occasionally hear street noise at night, if you want a completely silent apartment you should probably not choose the Latin Quarter to stay in.

The apartment is charming, with lots of plants and tasteful decorations. We used the elevator to go up and down quite a bit, and found it very convenient. We made a lot of our meals in the kitchen because eating out is expensive in Paris. There is a cute little balcony with a great view of the street that you can sit on and have coffee. One of the bedrooms has a bed that is elevated, and my 13 year old absolutely loved sleeping on it.

Our host, Vilay, was very helpful. She met us near the Metro and made sure we had everything we needed. I found her very warm, personable, and easy to deal with. All in all, we were very happy with this apartment.

PLEASANT PARIS APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
My husband, son and his fiance stayed in this apartment for 6 days at the end of September. The apartment was very clean and spacious and had "a good feel to it". However, there was not enough closet space for us to hang or store our clothes, as there was a lot of other stuff in the closets. It was inconvenient living out of our suitcases for that amount of time. The bathroom was large and very nice, but was a bit dark and could have used more light, particularly in the bathtub/shower area.
The location was very convenient to many of the sights in Paris. We had the options of walking, taking the Metro or the bus to Notre Dame, the iles, the Marais, the Seine, the Louvre and all the other wonderful sights of Paris. Being just a few blocks from Rue Mouffetarde was a real plus, with its street market and many restaurants. One day we bought fresh produce at the market and cooked dinner in the well stocked kitchen. Vilay was very helpful in answering our many questions and even booked a taxi for us on checkout day. All in all, we had a pleasant stay in this Latin Quarter apartment.

GREAT LOCATION IN THE LATIN QUARTER

  • 4 of 5
The location for this apartment is ideal - minutes from Metro station and about 10 minutes walk to Le Jardin des Plantes stop on the river for the Batobus (which allowed us to use the boat as a great alternate means of transportation on the beautiful summer days. A few minutes walk from the apartment up on Rue Mouffetard are some great restaurants. The neighborhood is safe and friendly (with the exception of a very cranky older fella who works in the main floor little grocery..perhaps we caught him on a bad day).

Vilay was helpful with her instructions and information. We had no problem finding the apartment, and although we never met her personally since she was away when we arrived, she left detailed instructions of how to obtain the keys. The apartment was well equipped with everything you might need during your stay - particularly if you prefer self-catered traveling and preparing your own meals (there was even a dishwasher - a rare find in an European apartment!)

Be aware: this is likely not a suitable sized apartment for more than 4 to 5. There were four of us and we were just comfortable. The apartment has a lot of furniture and "stuff" so if you had more people, I'm not sure where you'd put all of your suitcases and selves. The kitchen is well stocked but very cozy. Also, the apartment is on the fifth floor - not an issue for young healthy folks who like to walk and climb stairs, but could be an issue for some. There's a "lift" but be aware that European elevators are not the size or style that North Americans are accustomed to. There was a bit of street noise from the front, but the courtyard bedroom was very quiet.

Stunning apartment and location in the Latin Quarter. Great value. Many delightful evenings spend sitting on the balcony sipping Cote de Rhone wine and planning the next day's sightseeing. Would definitely recommend without reservation.
Vilay was very attentive and helpful.
