STYLISH, SUNNY AND VERY QUIET, PERFECT LOCATION ST GERMAIN

6th Arrondissement St Germain des Pres Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms sleep four (2 double beds) between Montparnasse and St Germain

A home away from home, our apartment is located in the heart of the left bank. We share it a few weeks a year with selected guests. It is a stylish, sunny, very comfortable and quiet apartment that has been recently completely renovated, on the top floor with a lift. We provide complimentary housekeeping service twice a week. It is steps away from three subway lines and buses, in the heart of St-Germain/Montparnasse.

There are two bedrooms (queen bed in one, double bed in second), an open kitchen and dining room that is a dream for cooks and elegant cosy dining (seats 8), a spacious living room with electric fireplace, romantic bathroom and separate WC. There is WI-FI and an excellent sound system. You will live among our books, music and art, like at home. All basic amenities are available on arrival, so no time will be taken from your holiday doing initial basic shopping.

Owners provide you with tourist information and guidance about the neighborhood. The price is all-inclusive. There are no hidden extras.

Apartment: Our apartment has oodles of charm. It is on the top floor of a 1900 building with dormer windows, is beautifully located at Metro St. Placide, two other subway lines and several bus lines. It has light and sun all day from exposures in every direction. It is very quiet, and has been recently completely renovated. The living space is generous, the two rental bedrooms are smallish. One has a classic queen bed, and the second has an excellent quality double sofa bed with an additional thick mattress pad. The second bedroom has a recessed washbasin with a granite countertop. We have wifi, a superb sound system with speakers in living and dining room, and HD television. Bedrooms and the living room have ceiling fans and there is a decorative electric fireplace in the living room. The living room also has a desk. There is comfortable seating in the living and dining room for eight people. The kitchen is wonderful for anyone who likes to cook, with modern equipment including a washer and dryer. The bathroom has a designer tub for two that is also equipped with a rainforest shower. The toilet is separate.

Neighborhood: We are between St Germain and Montparnasse, the intellectual hearts of Paris. The apartment is steps from the rue de Rennes, fifteen minutes walk from the St. Germain church or the Sorbonne, five minutes from the Luxembourg gardens, and ten minutes from the St. Sulpice church. There is a market two blocks away (Raspail) on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday (the latter is organic) and another slightly further (Edgar Quinet) on Wednesday and Saturday. Downstairs are two small grocery stores that can meet all your needs, really. The Bon Marché, one of the best department stores in Paris, that also has a spectacular food store, is two blocks away. Montparnasse railroad station is within walking distance, or three bus stops away. Shopping for clothing, records, books is excellent in the neighborhood. Restaurants and cafés abound, several with live music.

The owners: We are two professionals retired from the UN. Our Paris apartment is our home; we have a house in Normandy a few hours away from Paris where we go during rental periods. Since renters are staying in our home, we want people who stay here to understand and agree to treat it as they would treat their own. In return, we do everything in our power to make sure you have our help to make your stay as agreeable as it can be.

We provide detailed guidance on the neighborhood in notes left for guests. If you decide to stay with us and have particular questions about tourism in Paris, let us know ahead of time and we will be happy to oblige.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"We wanted to return to Paris for a two week stay with some luxe, comfort, safety, and all the facilities of our own home.

And, we found it, with great pleasure. We even found most of the shopping, if not on our 'doorstep', only a stone's throw away. The markets were also close by.

The apartment is all as described by the owner; cooking, washing, drying, house-keeping service, comfort, and good TV, music system are on hand. Excellent notes are provided and contact with the owner is most prompt, warm and helpful.

We particularly found the location excellent - situated between St. Germain and Montparnasse, quiet, safe, yet busy and not crowded with tourists. That which was not available on foot, was well connected to the rest of Paris by Metro (plural) and buses, again, only a step away."

LOVELY HOME IN A GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
We found this home to be completely "as advertised". It is very clean, extremely
well furnished and is in a great location. There are deli's within a block and a
great bakery right next door. The subway is less than a block away, and buses
seem to go on every street. Alexandra, the owner, is extremely helpful. She provided us with a list of restaurants and much needed information for "first timers"
in Paris. The doctor contact info was nice, as, unfortunately we needed a doctor.
The doctor arrived in one hour! We ate at a recommended restaurant and liked it
very much. I would recommend this home without reservation. We look forward
to a return trip in the future.

TOP-CLASS PARISIAN EXPERIENCE.

  • 5 of 5
It was a real privilege to stay in Alexandra and Zaghloul's apartment and live like authentic Parisians rather than as tourists. Despite its central location it was a very quiet, restful base from which to sample life in this amazing city. We met the conscientious cleaner who ensures guests are comfortable and also met our welcoming hosts who had thoughtfully provided so comprehensively for our needs. The apartment was exactly as described and we cannot recommend it highly enough. We sampled some of the restaurants recommended by Alexandra and were not disappointed. We also found a particularly non-pretentious but perfectly acceptable restaurant (Le Bistrot St Germain) at 17 Rue de Gregoire de Tours (off the Boulevard St Germain, near the St Germain Metro station). We look forward to a return visit!

PERFECT PARIS APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is really lovely - well appointed, tastefully decorated, and extremely comfortable. It allowed us to do the expected sightseeing but also to dig deeper into the experience of living in Paris - food shopping, cooking at home (if you love to cook!) and generally feel less like a tourist and more like a neighbor.

Located near the Bon Marche, Luxembourg Garden, and many more sites. Close to Metro lines 4 and 12, which connect you to many desirable sites.

We can't wait to return!

Great apartment, well furnished, and what a great location. Metro at both ends of the block. Groceries and fast food directly across the street. Walking distance to most everything. Alexandra is the best. Can't say enough.

Very clean and close to everything you could possibly need. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this apartment! Two metro stations were extremely close--grocery stores nearby. Kitchen was well stocked with all essentials. Would definitely stay here again. And, great coffee shop across the street!!

Our apartment is on the top (sixth) floor of a 1900 building with a lift. It is located in the heart of historic Paris, next to the Luxembourg Gardens, in a quiet street just next to the rue de Rennes, which is a major shopping avenue. The neighborhood is full of food shops, open-air markets, elegant and off-label clothes shopping, restaurants and bars. The best department store and food hall on the Left Bank, the famous Bon Marché, is two blocks away.

On foot or by public transportation one can easily reach key museums (Louvre, Musee d'Orsay), monuments (Pantheon, Invalides, Notre Dame, Eiffel tower), restaurants (advice available), cinemas, and entertainment of all kinds. Three subway lines and multiple bus lines are very close.
