Guestbook comments from the owner

First let me say that my wife and I are avid travellers, Europe, South and Central America on all sorts of budgets. I believe we have fair expectations and generally "roll with the punches". I feel this is an accurate assessment of Studio St. Severin. Here is what you should know. 1. Claude and Vioiaine(the owners) are wonderful honest people with tons of advice, and do not oversell their property. It is budget, it is old, and wonderfully it is in the heart of it all. 2. We had a hard time finding the apartment at first and realized the street numbers are a little confusing but eventually we found the front door just as pictured. Sadly the street is only 2 blocks long so I don't really know what our problem was in finding it. 3. Hundreds of restaurants within 5 blocks. 4. Directly off of the Metro and train line from the airport, it could not be easier to get there. 5. The studio we were in was overlooking a busy alley with restaurants right below. The studio is noisy into the evening as Parisians eat late. No big deal since you are eating late too. If you like it really quiet, I am sure there is a Holiday Inn for you somewhere right outside of the city limits. 6. The alley is an alley, therefore you are many times looking into the apartment across the way at another tourist in his underwear, no big deal since most times you are in your underwear at that moment too. There are curtains, but I don't like to miss anything. 7. When you arrive you find your door to the front of your building is also the back door to the kitchen of a restaurant, no worries, you soon will be lucky enough to know a real french chef! Bon Jour! 8. You really are only a block from the river and Notre Dame, it is a FABULOUS location. Bonus: when all the other tourists have to make a cross city trip to get back to their room, you get to just get up from the table at the restaurant and go upstairs. Strolling around the Notre Dame cathedral and the river at night is beautiful, and you are quickly back to bed. 9. Shopping for anything can be done within a few blocks, money exchanges as well. 10. The apartment is basic, but has the necessaries, comfy bed, new coffee maker, good locks, phone, etc. KEEP IN MIND when you first arrive your eyes are tired and harsh and you will not be overly impressed with what you see. Trust me, take a nap, shower, all of sudden you will feel like you are at home in your little Paris apartment, lucky you... I wish I was there right now

Best location in Paris - Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I visited Paris for the first time in December 2007. We rented Claude and Violaine's apartment in the Latin Quarters -- and were beyond impressed with what we received. From the start, they both emailed me plenty of information that prepared us for the trip. They also had locals in Paris check up on us now and then to make sure we were comfortable. The location of the apartment was the best!! Everywhere we went in Paris could not compare to "home" in the Latin Quarters. The apartment was super clean, warm and right in the middle of everything we wanted -- food, entertainment, shopping and many more. We could not stop talking about our experience in Paris to our friends and have recommended Claude and Violaine's properties to all of our friends and family. We are already planning a second trip back and will look to book with Claude and Violaine!

A Step Into Sacred Space

  • 5 of 5
It has been months since I first felt the spirit of Abbé Prévost in this room on Rue St. Severin. When I stepped across the portal of this small flat I was aware of the sacredness of its space. After unpacking and shopping for a baguette and wine, I sat at the little bistro table and glanced around the room trying to orient myself after a long flight.

I noticed the picture you see on the left as you sit at the bistro table. I began to read about the author, Abbé Prévost, who was born here in 1689. Being an author myself, I was immediately drawn in. Here I was in the room where Prévost had possibly written some of the material for his famous novel Manon Lescaut! It was as if I suddenly felt his presence with me in that room. If not his presence, at least surely his inspiration. I felt slightly giddy and certainly felt like penning a few words.

I grabbed my journal and began to reflect that history matters because we are not truly bound by life or death. We are in history, we are making history, and we will be the spirits present to others long after we have departed what we know as earthly time. While this may sound too philosophical – you must remember I had been on a long flight, I was sipping French wine and nibbling a baguette with cheese! Certainly, being in this clean, charming, and centrally located Paris apartment where a famous author was born and being nourished by such a repast, would lead one to think and write big thoughts!

I stepped out onto Rue St. Severin and made my way straight to the bookstore Shakespeare and Co. which is just a couple of blocks from the apartment, to purchase one of Prevost’s books. I spent several days writing in this room that fuels creativity, and I made the decision always to choose this studio when coming to Paris. It will be my place for a tryst with the author who reminded me that history is more real than the edges of time. In the same way, when I walk outside this building I find my place of tryst with the Divine at St. Severin Church. When the bells toll and I step into the ancient and simple beauty of that sacred place, I am reminded that the Holy One is as near as my own breath.

When my week in this room had ended, I made a final stop into St. Severin Church to offer gratitude, and I determined to return next year to this very special apartment that provides the joy, insight, and richness that always is “PARIS!”

Great location - we walked almost everywhere!!

  • 5 of 5
I am actually here in the apartment as I write this review. I have stayed here for 4 nights and am leaving for Nice in the morning. Everything you have read in the other reviews is true. The location is great. The apartment is very cozy. It has everything you need. The neighborhood is safe. I have never stayed anywhere else in Paris so I have nothing to compare it to, but it has met our needs quite well. It is basic - not fancy. The apartment is very clean, but I must remind you that this is a very, very old building, so don't have any grand expectations when you walk in the door and head up the dark, narrow stairway. The restaurants below are very lively until late at night and we had to sleep with open windows the first two nights as we were in the midst of a heat wave, so depending on the time of year, keep this in mind. It was nice to have a television with some English channels just to keep up with the news and as you can see, the Internet works beautifully. I have come to think of the apartment as "home". There is a nice little store on rue Domat that has everything you need from food to liquor to shampoo. We were very pleased with our stay and will take away only good memories. If I had anything negative to say, it would be "Paris is a very, very expensive city", so staying here indeed was an economical choice as we made our breakfast - coffee, eggs, yogurt every morning and snacked on our baguettes and cheese and drinks late in the evening. From the apartment, we walked to the Louvre, Pont des Arts, Tuilieries Gardens, Place Vendome, Forum des Halles, Pompidou Museum, popped into lots of churches, and of course, Notre Dame is very, very close. We caught the RER for Versailles from the St. Michel/Notre Dame stop - only a couple of minutes away, and also arrived at the same stop when we came in from the airport. If you are wanting a great location with no frills, this is the place for you.

This apartment's location is magical. We arrived from the airport by metro to a lively, exciting area full of cafes & restaurants & unique little shops. The address was easy to find with Claude's great directions & pictures. The apartment is just as described- small, cute & old-style charming. It was perfectly functional for the 3 of us. The city beckons with so much to do we were barely there during the day- but when we were the view from the windows just added to the charm. The lock box isn't as complicated as it sounds & yes, the street is noisy until the wee hours. We were able to walk to everything from this location - remember to take really good walking shoes. We felt safe there at all hours. It's a great place to stay for a reasonable price.

Location is vacation!

Our studios are located on Rue Saint Severin, across the famous church (see picture) in the Latin Quarter. You will be steps away from the romantic Bridges of River La Seine & church Notre Dame; at the heart of Paris in a pedestrian street lined with cafes, restaurants, bakeries and shops which create a festive ambiance.

But pragmatically being centred saves money....as you can walk everywhere to all major monuments.

Other Activities: Walking distance to all majors Paris sightseeing
