CHARMING APARTMENT WITH TERRACE, STEPS FROM NOTRE-DAME

5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

18th century beams, flowers and trees, high standard amenities, 1BR, sleeps 4

Imagine a truly unique location, steps from Notre-Dame and close to everything, the modern comfort with the charm of the old Paris, and a private flowery terrace…

Picture yourself in the morning, waking up under 200 year old beams, in a cozy, comfortable apartment. Then walking down the block to a wonderful bakery, enjoying stunning views on Notre-Dame, and returning with croissants and brioche. You have a delightful breakfast on the terrace, under the hazel tree.

What would you like to do today? So many monuments to visit in the surroundings. Or a cruise on the Seine River, the start is right here. Maybe this morning you’d like to experience the local Maubert fresh market ; the kitchen is fully equipped for you to accommodate then these finest ingredients and prepare a gorgeous meal.

If the Saint-Germain shopping experience is only planned for tomorrow, you can also go for antiques, explore bookstores (you’ll love Shakespeare & Co), or take a stroll to the Louvre.

The apartment is so close to everything that you can come back for an afternoon break before heading out for dinner. Let’s appreciate for a while the tranquility of the garden terrace, with a glass of wine and some fine music.

For dinner, what about the small café we recommended to you? Or you can celebrate at the famous “Tour d’Argent” overlooking the Seine!

And then, you could close the evening with one of the best jazz sessions in Paris, in two medieval caves just nearby, and return home by the banks of the Seine, wandering at the stars, and lights of Notre-Dame. A perfect end for a perfect day.

Enjoy a quiet night in your lovely room. An prepare for yet another perfect day.

The apartment is 538 Sq Ft / 50m², with a 690 Sq Ft private terrace.

The large living room, with wooden floor and wooden beams, comprises a dining space, and a sitting area with direct access to the terrace. The leather sofa converts to an excellent quality bed. The living room is equipped with 42” LCD TV with cable, very-high-speed Wi-Fi Internet, Hi-Fi system, DVD player, and books on Paris, French literature, French cuisine…

The open-plan and fully-equipped kitchen includes a four-burner induction stove, an oven, a microwave, a Nespresso coffee maker, a dishwasher, a complete supply of cookware, contemporary dishes, cutlery and glassware. All you need is here.

The 690 Sq Ft terrace, in addition to the many trees and plants, has a dining area for 4 guests, and a sitting area with sofa and armchairs.

The quiet master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and spacious closet with mirrors.

The tiled bathroom has a bathtub with shower, a towel warmer, and a washing machine with tumble dryer. Toilet is separated.

About Aurelien Vigano

Welcome to Paris, where we live with our four sons.

We love the heart of Paris, where we have lived for 18 years. And during your stay you may well bump into us at the bakery or by the playground in front of Notre-Dame.

Aurelien Vigano purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Aurelien Vigano chose 5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter

We came to Paris as students 18 years ago, and never left the Latin Quarter since.

We have lived in this apartment for 13 years, we built a family here.

When our twins are born a few months ago we had to move. But we would not leave the area, and our home is 5' away.

That also means we will (almost) always be here if you need some help, or tips.

What makes this apartment unique

We love this place, we entirely renovated it over the years, made it extremely functional, while keeping its charm.

And we fully refurbished it this year, for you.

Stunning apartment in wonderful central location

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous apartment. The apartment itself was a very well equipped. The terrace was a lovely place to relax after a day's sightseeing. Despite being literally around the corner from Notre-Dame, it was also very quiet and peaceful. The location was superb, literally steps from Notre-Dame and the river. Lovely boulangerie round the corner for breakfast, a market a couple of minutes walk away and plenty of restaurants/cafes/bars. Aurelien was a great host- he replied promptly to emails before our visit, check in/out was straight forward, and he was in touch during our stay to make sure all was going well. We would love to return to this apartment and would thoroughly recommend it!

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 4 of 5
Would have given it 4.5 stars but I couldn't make it do a half star!

Apartment was very clean and well appointed with (almost) everything one would need. I am an amateur chef and love to cook while in Paris from the abundance of great seafood and produce. The kitchen was great and even had good knives (I always bring my own and didn't need them here). But I do like to make sauces and the kitchen needs a fine mesh strainer or chinois for this. I had to improvise. No big deal but that would be a great addition to the kitchen for the cooks. The coffee machine is also not a Nespresso as stated in the description. It was a Krups. Big difference. Again, no big deal, but was expecting a Nespresso. I have one at home and they are great for a quick coffee/espresso.

The location was excellent, it is very centrally located, and we love the neighborhood. The terrace was awesome for coffee or wine and snacks or just a bit of people watching. We usually stay in the 6th or 7th and felt we had to take the Metro much less from this location. On future trips we would definitely stay here again.

Aurelien was very nice, answered emails quickly, and was waiting for us upon our arrival. We really did not have any problems, so we did not need to contact him during our stay for anything, although I suspect he would be very responsive.

We are not new to Paris and know our way around. However, if you were a first time visitor there was not much in the apartment to help. In other apartments where we have stayed there was always a big binder with restaurant and shopping suggestions, tips for the Metro, and directions to nearby places, etc. Was very helpful. There were guide books but that "local" knowledge is priceless. That would be another great addition to the apartment.

We stayed in May and the weather was fairly cool. I am not sure what it would be like in the summer months as I don't think there was an AC. Also bring a couple of converter/adapters for electronics as there were none provided. WiFi worked great the whole time.

Overall, a great stay! Thanks Aurelien!

Beautiful apartment exactly as shown

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in Paris. It was to be my first visit (but not my last). I knew nothing about the layout of the city, so blindly searched for apartments on the internet. I came across this amazing listing and decided to go for it. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! From the moment we arrived, with Aurelien there to greet us, until our departure, we just exclaimed at how fortunate we were to live here for ten days! We found ourselves in the center of everything, Notre Dame, Place Maubert, the Metro, the Batobus station right on the Seine, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. It was easy to get to any attraction you planned to visit, and so much is within walking distance. As others have stated, Aurelien was the most gracious host, making certain that we knew how to operate everything in the apartment. We had lovely weather during our stay, so spent much time out on the beautiful private terrace. Aurelien recommended a few local restaurants, one of which was our favorite, Au Phil du Vin. A most charming place just a few short blocks from the apartment with awesome French food, great wine, friendly proprietor and staff. We went back a second time on our last evening. This apartment is exactly as shown on the listing...no surprises. It's beautiful and comfortable throughout. I posted photos on Facebook, and many friends commented on what a beautiful place we had. I would not hesitate to recommend Aurelien's apartment, and will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Paris.

Lovely apartment, great location, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is beautifully decorated, very functional and comfortable, and extremely well-situated, close to the key sites and just two blocks from the RER/metro if you care to venture farther out.

You could not ask for a better host than Aurélien, who kindly met us with an extra umbrella when we arrived at the train station exit during a downpour. He walked us the two blocks to the apartment, pointing out points of interest along the way. At our request, he walked us two blocks to the bank and the stores mentioned below. He told us that he lived merely 100 meters away should we need him during our stay, but because of his help upon our arrival, we had no questions or problems whatsoever.

Arriving at the apartment, he explained the two-part security entry system. In the apartment, he explained how to use all of the appliances, the fireplace and the TV. The apartment itself is well-equipped with plenty of storage for your clothes and suitcases, a full-sized refrigerator, microwave/oven/convection oven programmed in English and easy to use, Nespresso machine, electric fireplace, flat-screen TV, a clothes washer/dryer, and a lovely rain shower.

The close proximity to the St. Michele-Notre Dame RER station makes travel to and from Gare du Nord and Charles de Gaulle Airport, as well as travel within the city via metro or bus, very easy and inexpensive. The apartment is also just two blocks from a bank, several patisseries, a charcuterie, a fish store, a boucherie (butcher), two wine stores, other specialty stores and three grocery stores. There is also a small local outdoor market that is held twice per week in that same area.

With all of this convenience, the apartment is on a surprisingly quiet street with a great outdoor space. We could not have had a more comfortable or enjoyable stay. During our next stay in Paris, I would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again. For the price, you will not find a more well-appointed, well-situated apartment, and Aurélien’s graciousness as host made the rental experience feel like a stay at a cherished home.

Fabulous Flat! Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancee and I were planning a trip to Paris over the 2013 Christmas and New Year's Eve holidays. We reviewed a number of hotels and scores of rental properties on a handful of websites, considered the location, the cost, the travel time from each location to the main sites we wanted to see, the restaurants where we wanted to dine and ultimately decided that we wanted to be in Arrondissements 1,2,3,4 or 5.

We then focused our search in these areas and selected this property.

We could not be happier with our selection. This property is fairly priced, perfectly located, wonderfully appointed and had all the comforts of home. We also packed lighter since the flat had a washer/dryer. On top of all that, the owner Aurelien, was the most gracious and helpful host for which we could have asked. He met us at the train station when we arrived in the Arrondissement, gave us a tour of the flat and made sure we knew how everything worked before he left. He texted us during the week to make sure we were comfortable making our taxi arrangements (he even provided the link) and he came by to check us out at a time that fit our schedule and not necessarily his. Suffice it to say, you might find a a comparable place to stay in Paris, you will not find a more gracious and hospitable host.

The flat is one bedroom on the second floor of a building on a block one street over from Notre Dame. You do not have a view of Notre Dame, but once you exit the building and turn the corner, you are looking directly at it across the Seine. It is a wonderful site to behold. The flat is one of a kind in that it has a balcony garden adjacent to it. It is a private garden, second floor, overlooking the street beside the building. The building is over 300 years old, but has been renovated and has everything that you could need for your stay in Paris. You can imagine the size of the flat, based on typical room sizes in these buildings, but it doesn't feel cramped. The living area is very open and with the floor to ceiling windows/doors you feel like the garden opens up the room. The bedroom is big enough the bathroom and kitchen are surprisingly roomy and the the toilet is in it's own room.

We really can't say enough good things about Aurelien and his flat. If you are visiting Paris and need accommodation near everything that is Paris at a fair price... we don't know how you could do any better. When we return to Paris, we fully anticipate another wonderful stay at this flat.

Excellent experience! 100% recommended

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience at this location. We are a family of 5, two adults, two toddlers and one baby, and we felt very comfortable in Aurélien's apartment. Aurélien came to see us in when we arrived, he kindly helped us in and provided unexpected items such as a few toys that my children very much appreciated and a baby cot. He also helped us find addresses for food and other things we had to buy on arrival. Aurélien's apartment also provided all that was necessary for our stay.
The flat's location cannot be better. It's minutes away from Notre Dame, a few steps away from the lively St. Michel area, and just walking distance from many beautiful places like Hotel de Ville, Jardin de Luxembourg, etc.
We cannot recommend this place enough. We had a great all around experience and would like to come back another time.
Thanks Aurélien!
