My mother bought this property as her pied a terre here in Paris where I live.
I am and architect here in Paris and I help her to rent the apartment when she is not here.
Rizzoli Vittoria purchased this apartment in 2010
We choose to buy this property because, we are Italian and for us Paris is Saint Germain.
My mother made part of her study here in Saint Germain and when I first arrived in Paris I lived not far from here.
The dream to have an apartment is the middle of the heart of Paris became true.
When you are in the apartment, you really have the impression to get in the real Paris.
The decoration goes very well with the style of the building and I could stay inside next of fireplace reading a book and looking out at the Parisian roofs.
Very cozy and warm.
We hope that You will love it as we do!
The apartment is in a perfect location, easy to walk to many landmarks. It is very cute, but a little bit smaller than I had expected. Loved feeling like a local in Paris!
This apartment was perfect for my wife and I. We had been to Paris before but couldn't have been more pleased with this studio apartment and it's location. Everything was done to make our stay enjoyable. I left a few belongings in the apartment that were gladly shipped back to me in California. Highly recommended!!
We have no hesitations about recommending this perfect Parisian apartment and hope to return again some day. The location is faultless: in a lively community, close to the Metro and within walking distance of many of Paris' attractions.
The apartment itself was spotlessly clean, it had all the amenities we needed including a roomy patio. We found the bed to be more comfortable than our own at home and slept great. We still daydream about our wonderful trip and we couldn't have imagined a better place to stay while we were in Paris.
This is a sweet little spot smack dab in the middle of Paris. The apartment is small, but considerably roomier and a much better value than a Parisian hotel room! It looks just like the photos, is very clean, really quiet and the bed is super comfortable. (I know I had to wonder about a pull out bed, but seriously, it is was great!) Vittoria did an wonderful job designing this apartment and stocking it with all the comforts you might need to make your stay pleasant and easy. The shower is amazing. We didn’t cook but it has a well equipped kitchen. The balcony terrace is a plus as we loved having a quiet glass of wine at the little table out there. The location can't be beat! We were able to take the train from CDG airport and only had to walk a couple of blocks to our apartment. The metro 5 minutes away as are many places to eat and shop. It was so nice to be in the middle of everything, yet have such a quiet and special spot to land each night. We give this experience 5 stars and look forward to hopefully returning the next time we come to Paris. Thank you Vittoria!
After spending 10 wonderful days at this apartment, we heartily recommend it for a single person, or as in our case, a couple. The apartment itself, though small, is wonderfully appointed, with washing machine, espresso machine, and all that you may need. The terrace is a delight: breakfast amongst the plants, evenings cooling off. The bathroom is beautiful, with a fabulous, large updated shower. The convertible bed/sofa is easy to manage and surprisingly comfortable. All in all, a great apartment. The location can not be beat. St. Germain/St. Michel is a lively area with much to do and see. Most major sites are walkable and if not, there are several Metro lines accessible nearby. Vittoria and her mother were helpful, kind and were available if needed. Finally, we recommend Cafe Calde, 2 blocks away as a restaurant with excellent food, a very convivial atmosphere and a wonderful owner. Thanks to Vittoria and her mother for making this apartment available.
You can't go wrong - this apartment is right in the heart of all the action: Great restaurants, markets, metro, Notre Dame, the Seine, the Louvre and more. The pull out couch was very comfortable and the nice big shower is hard to find in Europe. The only downside is that you have to pay with cash and not use a credit card which means you have to travel with cash or get it when you are there plus pay a security deposit in cash - which we got back. Overall - I highly recommend it!!
Wonderful quarter, you Artistic Legacy Meets Modern Chic:
Put on your Sunday best and head over to St-Germain-des-Prés, one of the more swanky, upscale neighborhoods in Paris. Here, you’ll find locals outfitted in Louis Vuitton and Dior whether on their way to a business meeting or out for a stroll. Situated along the Seine River, the area is also an artistic hub, with some of the city’s most prestigious museums, art dealers and small galleries. Once a spot for existentialist thinkers like Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, this is the place to see and be seen, window shop for Swarovski crystal and take home a piece of modern art for your mantel.
The St-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood lines the Left Bank of the Seine and extends southwards towards the sprawling Jardin du Luxembourg. It is hugged by the lively Latin Quarter to the east and the Eiffel Tower district to the west.
Main Streets: Boulevard St-Germain, Rue de Seine, Rue de Rennes, Rue Bonaparte
Getting There and Getting Around:
To check out the area's many art galleries, get off at Metro St-Germain-des-Prés (line 4) and walk north towards the Seine. For power shopping or a bite to eat, cross the Boulevard St-Germain and head south, or walk east from Metro Sèvres-Babylone (line 10). If you get off at Luxembourg (RER B), go northwest through the garden to get to the heart of the neighborhood.
The Benedictine Abbey of St-Germain-des-Prés dates to the 6th century. Only the church remains, but it is considered the oldest in Paris. In one of the side chapels, you can find the tomb of philosopher René Descartes.
Around the 19th century, the area was frequented by painters like Manet and writers Balzac and Georges Sand.
After World War II, St-Germain exploded into a hotspot for existentialist thinking, avant-garde theater, painting and jazz. Picasso, Sartre, De Beauvoir, Beckett and Charles Gainsbourg are some of the famous names associated with the area.
Places of Interest:
Jardin du Luxembourg: The expansive gardens and overlooking Senate belong to the Luxembourg Palace, and are a respite from busy Paris. Stroll along the perfectly manicured lawns and flowers or sail a toy boat across the pond. If you’re lucky, you might catch a weekend jazz concert under the pavilion. Also make sure to check out the Musee du Luxembourg, Paris' oldest public museum and a historical hotbed of the arts in the city.
Musée d’Orsay: This famous museum houses mostly French art from the mid-1800s to early 1900s, including an extensive collection of impressionist works by artists such as Monet, Renoir and Cézanne.
