The Rue Du Chateau suite is located on the rue du Chateau, about a ten minute walk from the Montparnasse area (a favorite haunt of Hemingway and the 1920’s Lost Generation). This Left Bank location is in a traditional part of Paris with typical butchers, bakers, and cafes, interspersed with more trendy bars and restaurants spreading out from the Montparnasse area. It’s a wonderful area for a very Parisian experience. It’s also in a great location forgetting around Paris from the Pernety metro stop one block away.
The apartment is a one bedroom located on the 2eme etage (our third floor) which also happens to be the top floor of a traditional turn of the century apartment building (the 1900 turn of the century). The apartment has great windows overlooking a green courtyard and the surrounding area.
There’s a comfortable living room with a lit gigogne (the French combination sofa and bed that's extremely comfortable for both) side chairs and a wonderful antique secretaire if you have work to do during your visit to Paris.
The apartment has a luxurious granite dining/bar area for drinks and meals. It's adjacent to the kitchen which was beautifully renovated and includes refrigerator, microwave, stove and oven. The kitchen enjoys its own view over the courtyard making it a delight to use the kitchen and enjoy the fruits of your visits to the neighborhood outdoor markets just five minutes' walk away.
Just off the bedroom, the bathroom has tub with shower and marble topped vanity. The toilet is in its own WC near the front door, in the French. Thus you end up with two bathroom sinks which many guests find very convenient.
The bedroom has a lovely marble fireplace, and a KING-SIZED bed; the mirrored closet offers plenty of storage space for your clothes and bags and is very quiet, being off of the street.
For an additional fee, parking may be able to be arranged half a block from the apartment.
The apartment has beautiful old traditional wood flooring and high ceilings to give it a truly antique Parisian feeling. The rue de Chateau suite allows you to experience Paris like a native.
Amenities: High Speed Internet Access and Free Telephone Local(01) France / United States/ Canada... more than 40 other country
Full kitchen with oven, microwave, toaster...
Living room with Television (100 Channels)
Bedroom with King size bed, large closet.
Bathroom with a bath with shower, separate toilet.
Activities: Paris is at your feet with the Chateau Suite.
Located just a block from the Pernety Metro stop, the Metro will take you to all the tourist spots of Paris, and then home to a quintessential French neighborhood.
We like the 58 bus line from Porte de Vanves to Chatelet. Make a stop at Luxembourg Garden and enjoy the Garden.
Area: This apartment is located in a very French neighborhood, with markets, cafes, butcher, baker, and supermarket within a block or two. Also, you are only about ten minutes' walk from the theaters, restaurants, and nightlife of the Montparnasse area.
We absolutely loved the Rue du Chateau apartment! The location, amenities, everything on the website was true. We especially appreciated the extra-comfortable bed and pillows, the fans, and the hair dryer! Merci!
P.S. – Thank you also for the coffee pot with REAL coffee, not just NesCafe!

This is our fourth stay in this wonderful apartment. We keep coming back for one simple reason - we love the place. The apartment is conveniently located in a "real" neighborhood, with many shops and restaurants nearby. It is just minutes from the lively Rue Daguerre and the heart of Montparnasse. We walk everywhere in the neighborhood, but there is a bus stop and Metro stop close by. The owner has put together a terrific concierge book, explaining how to get places, where to shop, and descriptions of what the neighborhood has to offer. The apartment has a warm, cozy feeling to it and is perfect for two people. The kitchen is fully equipped, with enough dishes, cookware, and utensils to put together great meals. In fact, on this trip, we ate in every night, taking advantage of the fresh produce and food stalls from nearby open air markets. There are open air markets within walking distance on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. There are also supermarkets, butchers, cheese shops and boulangeries just minutes from the apartment. The kitchen and eating area have become our favorite part of the apartment!! On other visits we have happily sampled some of the neighborhood restaurants, all within walking distance from "home."
The rental process was efficient and flawless, with prompt responses to all inquiries, whether by email or telephone. We can't say enough good things about the Rue du Chateau apartment, and can't wait for our next visit!
We loved our one-week stay. The apartment is in the center of the block so it is very quiet. It has everything you need with a nice view of the courtyard.
We can't wait to return to Paris and would love to stay here again.
Where to start? The apartment was immaculate upon arrival. The photos are a true representation. The owners are very responsive. The orchid was a lovely gesture. I've done my best to maintain its beauty!
The nautical artwork is wonderful and interesting. Natural and internal lighting is excellent - you can actually see to read - unlike most Paris apartments. The outlook is great with the usual courtyard, but there's more, as you see a lot of sky and get an idea of what the day promises. Absolutely no noise at night, except for the occasional rumble from next door (just keep the bathroom door closed). Kitchen is better equipped than anyone would expect with Limoges china and lots of it + enough cooking equipment and utensils to host a dinner party for eight!
The "library" is good too - I don't need Paris books and there's plenty of info, but I did appreciate the few very good novels. I exchanged one for another that I presume is the concept.
The neighbourhood ambience is great - this is a local Paris area, not a tourist "must". There are numerous food outlets - super marché, fruit & veg, boucheries, boulangeries etc etc. Montparnasse is close and the 58 bus will get you there in a few minutes if you're not up to the 10 minute walk.
I know Paris well and this is without doubt the most comfortable and welcoming apartment I have ever rented. It's small, but lovely. I have a policy of eating out - easy in this area - local resto, Café Losserand opposite Métro (Pernety), has excellent cous cous on Fridays - authentic and cheap. I could go on and on about the benefits of living in Pernety. If you wish to visit the monuments of Paris the 58 bus will take you close to everywhere - le Louvre, Notre Dame, les Halles - and from there its an easy walk to .... I am very happy that I rented 132 rue du Chåteau and have already recommended the apartment to friends. Enjoy your stay as much as I have. Merci beaucoup to Jean-Pierre et George. Finally - I'm called "UNHAPPY" as that was my last review - I am actually VERY HAPPY
When we couldn't find anything we could afford in the 4th adn 5th arrondissements, we checked out the 14th and discovered the relatively peaceful neighborhood by the Pernety Metro stop. Even though you sense a calm atmosphere when you emerge from the Metro, the neighborhood has dozens of cafes, inexpensive restaurants, take-out traitteurs, fromageries, boulangeries, boucheries, etc. The charm of old Paris in this neighborhood outweighs the occasional modern building mixed in.
The apartment is small, but its high ceilings and tall windows give it a light and airy feeling. The photos on the website do not do justice to the apartment's overall attractiveness. Someone has carefully thought about what a temporary resident might need and provided amenities like flashlights, sewing kit, extra towels, electric adapters, and shopping bags for the nearby supermarket. A laundromat is next door. The owner provides detailed written instructions and suggestions which are very helpful.
The apartment looks over a courtyard with beautiful trees and is absolutely quiet. Unfortunately, you can hear the neighbors next door through the walls, but we mitigated this by closing the bathroom door, and since these elderly neighbors keep very reasonable hours they never bothered our sleep.
Historic Rentals, which manages the apartment, did everything right and in an organized fashion. Madame Gelacio, the English-speaking housekeeper, came right over when we had to call her about a (self-inflicted) problem.
All in all, we highly recommend this apartment and its neighborhood.
We felt so fine in your comfortable apartment and could hardly leave the beautiful Paris…
Everything was perfect, even as we imagined and shown on pictures!
What surpassed our expectations:
- very calm and quiet, safe flat, house, neighbourhood.
- all kind of shops and the metro are very close to the apartment.
- stable and fast internet connection.
- the security box for the key is a good idea!
- very well equipped, nice and neat apartment.
We are fully satisfied with the apartment and services. Thank you so much for the nice welcome-bouquet, yellow roses!
I surely recommend this apartment to my friends and in my acquaintanceship. Hoping to return soon to Rue du Chateau,
