Located only a 10 minute walk from the heart of Saint Germain des Pres, on the 5th floor, with elevator, of an elegant 18th century building, this stylish 2 bedroom apartment embodies Parisian style.
Situated on the rue Barbet de Jouy, it is close by to a wonderful choice of restaurants, grocery shops and open-air markets.
Recently renovated, and decorated with beautiful furnishings, the space is comprised of two rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a modern bathroom.
The 55m2/592 sq ft comfortably sleeps three, and the main bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed.
The area boasts some of the finest landmarks in the city. Only a stone’s throw from the Rodin Museum, and the Invalides, it is also a ten minute walk from Paris’s best department store (with the finest food hall in town) , The Bon Marché, and the trendy Saint-Germain-des-Pres area. This is a perfect and comfortable base for those who wish to discover Paris for the first time, as well Francophiles who are returning to the city.
St.Francois Xavier metro station is a 150 meters / 2 minute walk away.
The owner works in design, and has lived in Paris for 10 years.
Heureux séjour chez Charles lors d'un récent voyage à Paris en amoureux :-)
L'appartement est situé dans un quartier bourgeois, sécuritaire et typiquement parisien -- le 7e Arrondissement -- près des Invalides, du Musée Rodin, du Bon Marché et... voisin de l'immeuble, rue Babylone, où a vécu jusqu'à sa mort Yves Saint-Laurent et son conjoint Pierre Bergé.
La rue Babylone est une charmant artère, pas trop achalandée, mais qui offre tous les services (restos, cafés, cinéma, librairie, pharmacie, supermarché…).
On peut aussi marcher dix minutes pour se rendre au (splendide) Jardin du Luxembourg ou encore dans le chic quartier Saint-Germain.-des-Prés.
La station de métro St-François Xavier est à deux minutes à pied!
De là, on atteint la Rive Droite et le centre de Paris en 15 minutes.
L'appartement est joli et très confortable, parfait pour un couple seul ou avec un enfant. Charles, son proprio, est styliste et il a beaucoup de goût !
Je vous le recommande chaudement .
P.S.. Notez bien: le prix par jour est indiqué en « Livres sterling » et non en Euros.

My friend and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for eight nights in November. I'm so glad we stayed here and would highly recommend this chic apartment to all my friends and here is why:
-Excellent and safe neighborhood! We loved St. Germain and the apartment is close to everything you would need: a small grocery store (though I recommend you walk a bit further to the Le Bon Marche food market as it is amazing); superb coffee shop (Café Coutume on Rue de Babylon); excellent restaurants & shopping; several metro stations; and I could go on an on! We walked to everything (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Musee d'orsay, Musee Rodin, Champs Elysees, Invalides, etc) and just loved the location.
-Apartment itself is very nice. Comfortable beds with excellent linens. Plenty of closet space. Nicely decorated with antiques. A washing machine if needed. A heated towel rack in the bathroom, and provided hair dryer; a kitchen (we kept snacks in the refrig) but mostly ate out. On a quiet street and in a quiet building! We were very pleased with the apartment and are so glad we chose it over staying in a tiny hotel room--we truly felt like we were living like a Parisian.
-Charles (the owner), was an excellent host, communicated well and quickly if needed. Met us when we arrived to give us a tour and answered our questions. His suggestions for restaurants and notes about the neighborhood were excellent!
-The apartment was clean when we arrived and all we were asked to do before we left was that we take out the trash.
-Wireless Internet in the apartment was helpful so we could check email and book things like our Fat Tire Bike Tours (highly recommend this--we did tours of Paris, Paris at Night, and Versailles and loved each tour).
-Bathroom was plenty big. It was an adjustment not having a shower--but I brought bubble bath and enjoyed the deep antique tub..which was especially great after walking and biking so much each day!
-Bedroom with queen bed...super comfortable, great sheets, down duvet and curtains in case you like it dark when sleeping.
Anyhow, I could go on and on but you get the idea! We enjoyed staying here and would definitely stay here again! Thanks Charles!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It was everything as described by the owner. Having traveled extensively in Europe, the charm and comfort of this rental was greatly appreciated. It is situated on the 5th floor and there is a lift if needed. However, we chose the stairs to help burn off the sweets and extra servings of bread and cheese. The layout is as depicted on HomeAway. The warmth from all of the windows in the living area is lovely. You feel like actual tenants and not vacationers when you stay here.
The apartment appeals to every traveler, whether it be those seeking the major sights and attractions or those who want to immerse themselves in the Parisian day to day living.
If you are one who likes to take in all of the attractions, this apartment is perfect. It is close to the metro and within walking distance to several museums, landmarks, restaurants, shopping and parks. The location is a perfect base for sight seeing.
On the other hand, if you are one seeking a Parisian experience look no further. Personally, this is how we travel. We adopt a neighborhood and explore it thoroughly. This neighborhood is oozing with ambiance, charm and Parisian culture. We shopped at the specialty shops within the neighborhood itself. We took the advice of the owner, Charles, and ate at some of the recommend restaurants (loved Restaurant Oudino). But one of the highlights was shopping at the Thursday/Saturday Market Saxe-Breteuil. If you can take the time to visit this market, it’s only a ten minute walk from the apartment. The location itself is worth going for due to it’s closeness to the Eiffel Tower, the tree lined streets, and the wonderful surroundings. It’s only two blocks long but packed with amazing produce, cheese, bread, meats, etc.
The apartment itself is comfortable, well decorated, clean and is suitable for three people, but perfect for two. The bed is nice. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to prepare your own meals. The only minor issue is the lack of a shower, but it is easy to adapt to a bathtub. Besides, when is the last time you have had the opportunity to bath in an antique, Parisian bathtub? The owner, Charles, is very professional and easy to work with. He helped us figure out our transportation and has very good taste in restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again. Thank you for providing a lovely place to stay in the most beautiful city in the world.
I loved staying in Charles’ apartment. It was like staying at a friend’s home with authentic furniture, beautiful art books and magazines and a stocked kitchen. The apartment is slightly quirky, very stylish and clean. Charles was easy to deal with and very flexible and accommodating and the apartment felt safe and it was really quiet.
The living room is bathed in light with so many windows opening onto the large internal courtyard. The window in the kitchen opens onto the street, which creates a lovely cross breeze and airiness.
The bed, mattress, pillows and bed linens were perfect — as if you were staying in the best hotel. I had baths mainly. There was a little water around if you showered—for me it wasn’t an issue.
The location is great: close to the Rodin museum and its glorious gardens, and Bon Marche and its wonderful foodhall and so much transport.
I liked the boulangerie a few minutes away on the corner of Rue d’Estrees and Av de Villars near the #92 bus stop. I would gladly stay there again and recommend it to friends.
Overall we were very pleased with the apartment and with Charles. The location is superb for those like me that like to walk Paris. It is centrally located around the corner from one of my favorites museums (Rodin) and walking distance to almost every tourist attraction, with nearby markets and a few restaurants. A good place for a couple looking for a quiet place after a full day among the crowds. Ariel.
I agree with the previous reviews. The flat was amazing and perfect for us and Charles was a terrific host.
The flat is on the 5th level, but the lift made that a plus. The building was very quiet the entire week we stayed. We visited in November and the flat was easy to keep comfortable.
We were able to walk to nearly every major attraction in Paris. In fact, we didn't even use the Metro until the 5th day of our stay. Out the door and travel left and you are off to Orsee and the Louvre; out the door and to the right and you are moments away from the Eiffel Tower. The flat is actually on the same city block as the Rodin Museum.
In all directions, restaurants and brasseries and pâtessaries greet you. Charles recommended some great restaurants in his city guide and was easy to communicate with during our stay.
We hope to return and are recommending that our friends rent the flat for their vacation.
