5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
A gorgeous apartment on one of the oldest streets in Paris: a large living room and two bedrooms totally remodeled to accommodate six in luxury. 3 minutes by foot from Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sainte Chapelle and the rue de Buci market street. The apartment is also located barely 7 minutes from Saint Germain des Prés and the Louvre and d'Orsay Museums.
Whilst the King and his Court were on Ile de la Cité, Church and students had to find land for the University; they chose the Left Bank and the Sorbonne was built. As these true scholars spoke Latin, the Latin Quarter was born and remains until today.
The area is at the corner of Boulevards St Germain and St Michel, the building on rue de la Harpe, in the one of the most evocative and romantic streets of Paris: a series of cobblestone streets that give the place it's very unique charm. The streets have little traffic and are very lively. Restaurants, bars and even a jazz club line the streets. A romantic scene! (look at the pictures).
The apartment, an extremely quiet and bright penthouse, is located on the sixth floor. The building is over 400 years old (nobody really knows the exact date, probably around 1600, records have long been lost!), but there is an elevator. The building has been recently restored to its original beauty and enhanced with warm tones of beige that complement the parquet floors and the original high beamed ceiling restored and has two doors for added safety.
A typical old wooden door gives entrance to your apartment and you are in the Living Room. A large sofa (that also sleeps two), is facing a beautiful limestone fireplace (decorative only), several comfortable chairs; a large wooden dinner table that easily fits six and a fully equipped kitchen and with an enchanting view on the street below, it’s the perfect setting for romantic dinners and lazy mornings in. An original beamed ceiling rises over the entire living and dining room!
The decoration is a tasteful mixture of classic furniture.
A charming brown stone as the kitchen counter, closets filled with everything needed to make that so Parisian dinner. It features a built-in micro-wave, full size dishwasher, convection oven, coffee pot, toaster, and a four burner electric induction stove. Not to mention the clothes washer and separate dryer conveniently located side by side. The kitchen of this apartment rental in Paris comes complete with all of the pots, pans, and utensils you’ll need, as well as a full complement of porcelain dishes, cutlery, glasses, and quality linens to set an immaculate table.
The Master Bedroom has an extra-wide queen-size bed, a small desk in the corner, a pretty wall and table lamps to make working or lounging in bed a pleasure. A large window shines natural light and provides romantic views of Paris rooftops. A second flat-screen TV and dual-standard DVD player and parents can entertain themselves here while children socialize in the Living Room.
The Master Bedroom features an en-suite bathroom decorated in beige tile and features a toilet, a sink sunk into a curved counter, and a full-size bathtub/shower combination with both fixed and flexible shower heads behind sliding glass doors.
