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.
For seven glorious days, this apartment was our home away from home! Great location near museums, the metro, the Seine, and shopping yet comfortably situated within a neighborhood that allows for an everyday life experience as a "Parisian ". Manager's hospitality is second to none and her recommendations are stellar. Apartment is clean, modern, and efficient. My husband and I are already planning our return!!!
My wife and I, both seniors, stayed here 11 nights in November. We enjoyed it very much and could walk or take a short Metro ride everywhere. Great shops and services right outside the door. Quiet street and building. Modernized apartment, well appointed. Good size for a studio.
My husband and I could not have been happier with our accommodations on this, our first visit to Paris (6 days). The studio IS charming, clean, comfortable, efficient, and very well located. Loui is a charming and welcoming hostess, and very knowledgeable about the immediate area and Paris in general. Her information booklet was so helpful, as were her excellent recommendations for dining and exploring in the neighborhood. Thank you, Loui, for all your help in making this one of our most memorable vacations! The neighborhood is NOT touristy (thankfully), but has everything we wanted right at hand. We walked to almost all the major sights we wanted to see in Paris, and enjoyed our little journeys to these big attractions. However, for those less inclined to walk, metro, bus and train transportation is close by. We would definitely return to Paris, and would try to plan our next visit around the apartment's availability, if at all possible.
We just came back from a week stay in paris and all we have to say is "wow" we were so impressed with Louie's hospitality and helpful information! The apartment was clean and decorated very modern. Close to metro stops and once you understand the Paris metro it will be your best friend, we love how great thier metro is. The latin quarter where the apartment is located is very friendly with a younger crowd, we felt very safe and there was a lot to explore, would recommend this apartment to any couple looking to have a true Parisian experience in Paris! Thank you Loui!!!
The apartment was as described, lovely and neat. It's surrounded by local stores
, everything we needed was within reach. We also like the convenient location, easy access to all the attractions. Thanks to Loui's warm welcome and gave us all the high lights and details about the neighborhood. We will love to go back and stay if we visit Paris again in the future.
What a beautiful experience we had. Even though in the city, our area seemed like it was located on the square in a local village. Everyone was so nice and made us feel right at home. We definitely will, and can't wait to, go back. The location was within walking distance of Notre Dame, museums, gardens and parks, artisan areas, and (of course) shopping! All this and restaurants and sidewalk cafes on every corner. Loved it, loved it, loved it! By the way, the apartment comes with a combination lock gate and a locked front door just to get in. It's in a real neighborhood and offers the real experience of Paris.
