LEFT BANK CHARMING STUDIO, QUIET, GREAT LOCATION

5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Studio Rental Photos and Description

Accommodations: Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-2) with elevator

This lovely, newly refurbished studio is nestled on a quiet one-way street on the left bank. This is a real neighborhood with a generous assortment of restaurants, bakeries, boutiques, markets and bars within an easy strolling radius. The lively and colorful rue Mouffetard is about a ten minute walk where you can kick back and enjoy the bustle and join the locals dancing on Sunday mornings. Rue Mouffetard has buildings that date from the middle ages and it now hosts a colorful, daily fruit and vegetable market. The Jardin des Plantes, its museums and the Seine are both easily accessible by foot with the Jardin des Plantes being no more than a few minute walk. Also easily accessible is the Pantheon, Place Monge, Arène de Lutèce, the Sorbonne and Luxembourg Gardens.

If you love to eat, there are a plethora of choices including a one star guide Michelin restaurant which is one of our favorites and is no more than two blocks away. In addition to the traditional bistros, local restaurants and bars, the neighborhood offers some excellent ethnic choices. If you get tired of dining out, the apartment offers dishes, pots, pans and silverware so as to enable you to prepare a lovely dinner. (Keep in mind that there are five bakeries, not including rue Mouffetard, so you should always be able to find fresh bread and goodies daily.)

The bathroom provides a good size shower (by french standards) and will be a nice luxury if you have previously stayed in a typical Parisian hotel. The apartment is about 322 square feet (or 30 meter square).

The apartment is well lit with two large original windows that allow for cross ventilation when open. They, of course, have shutters that will close out the morning light.

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING APARTMENT WITH ELEVATOR BUT SORRY NO PETS ALLOWED.

I decided to retire in Paris after having lived and worked in Key West, Florida for about 20 years. I recently published a book called 'Parisian Postcards : Snapshots of Life in Paris' and I continue to enjoy sharing my experiences of living here with others.

Location, location, location! Here is a neighborhood not overwhelmed with tourists but everything is at your fingertips from great restaurants to shops, marchés and banks. Best of all, it is easy to get to the Seine for a daily walk! Life can really be great if you live like a local.

Amenities include a large, flat screen TV, CD player, wifi, stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, hairdryer and an elevator.

I will be meeting you at the apartment with keys to give you a tour of the apartment, the neighborhood and to help answer any questions on getting settled into your home away from home.

Just Perfect

This studio was just perfect for my husband and I, it is as described and pictured. There is plenty of room and the apartment is spotlessly clean. The shower is a very nice size with plenty of hot water. We appreciated having a dresser to place our clothes and the nice roomy closet. Plenty of space to have your luggage out of the way. Loui has a book full of information for restaurant recommendations, metro and bus information and several excellent books of maps to help navigate the city. The apartment is only one flight up and does have a small lift which we appreciated after a long day of walking. The neighborhood is quiet with several excellent restaurants close by. There is also a bakery and market just around the corner. Loui is always available for help or information. We enjoyed 2 restaurants in particular that were within walking distance of the apartment, one being Variations and the other being Desvouges. We enjoyed a full week here and would highly recommend this rental.

Great Location!

Excellent location for a visit to Paris! We enjoyed being close to the Seine and not far from Notre Dame. We fell in love with Jardin des Plantes, a beautiful park just a couple of blocks from the apt. We enjoyed being close to Mouffetard with plenty of restaurants and shops. This place is close to the metro and bus stops, so transportation is not an issue. The apt. was sufficient with all the comforts of home. There were no surprises. Loui, the apartment manager, was very accomodating. She met us early and provided an overview of the apartment and area. We were quite pleased with our stay and would definitely rent this place again. We enjoyed the friendly community and hospitality!

I was very impressed with the apartment. It was clean and neat and had everything we needed. The manager was especially sweet and she helped us every day with translations, reservations, and questions about Paris.

Great studio in an excellent neighborhood, managed by a gracious host.

Great neighborhood where you can relax & enjoy the Parisian lifestyle & visit any attractions you wish. Close to Jardin des Plantes (spend some time strolling there), boulangeries, Rue Mouffteard markets & shops, and many local restaurants. In close proximity to train station, metro, & Batobus stop, so an ideal base to explore the city. Apartment was well furnished, clean, comfortable, and well kept, with ample space & a nice shower. Easy to buy provisions & cook in or to choose from a wide variety of restaurants (Patrick's place makes excellent pizza!). Loui is a gracious host: she provides you with a detailed orientation when she meets you and her guide to local amenities is excellent. Be sure to check out her book, Parisian Postcards, on some of the city's lesser known attractions. We had a wonderful stay & would definitely recommend to all wishing to experience being part of a Parisian neighborhood rather than staying in a hotel.

Very nice and homely experience

This is the 1st trip to Paris and we were a little nervous with renting an apartment instead of hotel especially when travelling with a child. It ends up that the experience was superb! There was a seamless handover of keys for arrival and departure. The information booklet in the room gave us all we needed to travel around the area. Apartment is the way it is from the picture, clean and very comfy for us. :) Great amenities around the area too!

Louis had been great in keeping the apartment clean for us and a little surprise (fruits & water) upon our arrival. Her book has entertained us during the night in the apartment as well. She had been very responsive and available when we needed help from her.

Overall experience was great! We have been recommending to friends who are travelling to Paris.
