CHARMING, COMFORTABLE & QUIET WITH A LOVELY VIEW 150-200 EUROS PER NIGHT

5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This apartment is unusual in that despite being in the center of Paris, close to the River Seine, Notre Dame, etc, it is actually quiet, airy and has a far reaching view across gardens and treetops. While waiting for your coffee to brew you can gaze out at the spires of Notre Dame and farther off across the river, Sacre Coeur, up on the hill of Monmartre.

The apartment is on the top floor of a 4 floor walk up (it`s a typical old Latin Quarter building) but as soon as you walk through the door you are in your own Paris world. No feet pounding over your head at midnight! And as the building is situated in a courtyard one barely hears the sound of traffic at night either.

But once outside on the street you will find that you are in the beating heart of old Paris. It is an easy stroll to so many landmarks - Notre Dame, the Pantheon, Jardin des Plantes, the Sorbonne, Boulevard. St. Germain, Luxembourg Gardens, etc.

Rue Moufftard, the oldest street market in France is also close by.

Hemingway, Joyce, George Orwell - they all lived in this corner of the Latin Quarter. Woody Allen`s 'Midnight in Paris' was filmed just down the street.

When you want to zip around Paris, you will find a metro at either end of the little cobblestone street that will get you anywhere you need to go very quickly.

And don`t overlook the great local buses. There are several bus stops nearby and, for example, you can can go directly to the foot of the Eiffel Tower , while driving through the narrow streets of the Left Bank, window shopping! An unsung feature of Paris. You do not need to pay for expensive tours!

There is supermarket across the street , open until 10pm every night (except Sunday). And of course there are bakeries and other lovely food shops jumping out at you everywhere you turn. That`s when you give thanks for the stairs!!

On a practical note, it`s a small apartment, one bedroom but it sleeps 3 comfortably.

The king size bed in the bedroom is actually 2 twin beds if needed, and the sofa in the sitting room is a proper custom made sofa bed. There is a walk in closet.

In the bathroom the shower is attached to the wall above the bathtub. There is also a bidet, useful for soaking those aching feet.

The kitchen is small but well equipped, and there is a microwave/convection combo oven and a 3 ring gas stove top. Also a dishwasher, a washing machine and a dryer, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, etc.

I have tons of books, including guide books, lots of CDs of all kinds and an apple laptop with wifi connection. Oh, and TV of course, although you will gaze out the window more I`m sure.

Finding a place to rent in Paris can be daunting as there is SO much choice online these days, some of it misleading (putting it politely!) so you do need to be careful. This may be a special trip for you, an anniversary perhaps , and you want to be sure you find somewhere to stay that lives up to your expectations and will enhance your Paris experience so you will have memories for a lifetime.

This is my home and I have set it up accordingly, so it has the comforts and atmosphere of a real home, not a rental unit.

If you think my apartment might be suitable for you, please don`t hesitate to e.mail me with any and all questions, or if you would rather talk on the phone, I`ll give you my phone number.

All the best.

About deirdre slevin

Originally from Dublin, I live now in San Francisco and lucked into my apartment in Paris over 11 years ago.

I knew when I climbed the 4 flights of stairs, walked through the door and saw the light and the view that this was IT!! So peaceful and airy.

It helped that it had just been beautifully renovated by an Italian and her architect, who had maximized the space while keeping the architectural details.

But I had to move in to appreciate how brilliantly convenient the location would prove to be, even though I had previously lived in 3 different locations in Paris, including another part of the Latin Quarter - closer to the river but jammed with tourists and fast food joints.

The 2 different metro lines and 4 buses within moments of the front door are something for which I give thanks on a daily basis as I go about my daily life without a car.

My friend Marie-Noel, who manages the apartment and greets guests, was born and raised on the Left Bank (she lives just down the road) and she gives real insider advice on the neighborhood.

We both want our visitors to have the best possible time, and they do seem to, judging by all the kind and enthusiastic comments we hear and read in the coffee table book.

Cheers, and good luck - have a fabulous time in Paris wherever you end up staying.

Deirdre

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5
We decided at the last minute to book a flat versus a hotel for the convenience of having a kitchen and more. This flat was ideal. Safe the 4 floor walk up and intermittent wifi , it was a wonderful location for exploring the Latin quarter and nearby areas. The bus and lector lines were just out the front door! The manager of the flat was as helpful and sweet as could be.

Nice apartment

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a 1 week stay at this nice apartment in the Latin Quarter. The apartment is well located and free of street noise as it sits on an inner courtyard. The bedroom is separate from the living/dining room. There is a small but very functional kitchen and the bathroom has a tub! The entire apartment is very clean. This is well worth anyone's stay.

It is a beautiful, cozy apartment with everything one needs to be comfortable. Very helpful local woman met us on our arrival . I would rate it excellent except for the four flights of stairs. We did it and am sure not an issue with younger people. Very convenient location and 2 metro stops just down the street. Loved our stay in Paris!

Most charming Paris apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I absolutely loved this apartment in Paris. It could not have been better. The location was excellent, walking distance from lots of attractions and with a Metro stop at either end of the street. We didn't have any trouble with the stairs. It helped to work off all of the bread and pastries from the many bakeries we sampled. Eric Kayser, down Rue Monge, was fantastic, and I even made the trek to try the famous Poilane bread. But the boulanger at the end of the street opposite the Cardinal Lemoine station was great too!
Don't miss Ste. Chapelle, Notre Dame, Montmartre, walking around the Seine and Ile St. Louis and Ile de la Cite at night (so many street performers, and beautiful lights), Jardin du Luxembourg and the Jardin des Plantes (lovely), the Musee D'Orsay, the Eiffel Tower, and just sitting at a cafe watching the city go by. We had the time of our lives! If we go back we would definitely stay in this beautiful apartment again.
Do try to speak some French, even a little, and say bonjour when you walk into a store, etc. If you just make a little effort, the French are so nice and helpful! We did not have one negative experience.
Loved it!!!!!

Convenient Location, Great and Safe Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I recently had the honor of staying in Deirdre's lovely abode for a week prior to Easter in this 4 flight walk-up in the Latin Quarter. It is conveniently located between 2 Metro lines and several bus stops, all of which we took advantage of, as well as one of the best boulangeries in Paris, Kayser, as well as open markets, fromageries, a supermarket, wine shops, etc. The cafe on the corner, Le Petit Cardinal is warm and accommodating, serves excellent petit dejeuner, as well as late night drinks. The 4 flights of stairs may be burdensome for some but promise excellent views and lots of sun and sky. It overlooks a mostly quiet courtyard, where you will hear birds and church bells, but beware of the adjacent schoolyard where the children play several times a day if you wish to sleep late or need a nap. The apartment was kept comfortably warm (it was quite cold in Paris when we were there!) with enough down comforters, pillows, and a lovely heated towel rack to keep us toasty. Deirdre has made her home quite homey, with a wonderful CD collection, laptop, Paris guide books, novels and magazines and a variety of wine glasses. It is very clean and fresh. We made use of the washer and dryer and it was easy and great having our own coffee and fresh pain de chocolate every morning! Not only is Deirdre very helpful, kind, and responsive, but Marie-Noel, her Paris manager, is as well, with restaurant recommendations, transportation help, and anything else you might need. I would recommend this property for anyone looking for a very convenient location to many well-known Paris spots while embracing the lifestyle of Parisians in a safe, warm environment. If you require absolute quiet ALL day or stairs are a hindrance, this might not be the place for you.

Girls' Fabulous Paris Getaway

Girls' Fabulous Paris Getaway
  • 5 of 5
After viewing the pictures of this apartment I could not wait to rent it. I was traveling with a girlfriend and my 17 year old daughter and only had 4 days/5 nights in Paris. The apartment was exactly as pictured. It was warm, inviting, tidy and efficient, perfect for 3 people. The beautiful windows and charming architectural elements made us feel like we were in an enviable location (which we were!). My daughter especially loved the bookcases filled with beautiful old novels and travel books. I loved that the place was small yet not at all claustrophobic. It was nicely decorated and had a place for everything including a laptop computer and cd player. The view out the large windows was spectacular and the heavy shutters kept the warmth in at night. The weather was cold when we were there, but the apartment was plenty warm and never ran out of hot water. We really loved the insulated teapot which kept our nightly tea piping hot for several cups. The bathroom had plenty of room for our toiletries (a nice plus) and a heated towel rack (another fabulous plus). We had ample room to unpack our belongings and the table was large enough for the three of us to eat at for breakfast and light dinner. There was also a dishwasher, washing machine and separate clothes dryer. We did not use them since our stay was short but amazing to have. We were very comfortable and I for one look forward to renting here again (when the weather is warmer!). The 4 flight walk-up winded us on the first day but the apartment is so worth the climb that it was cake after that.

Deirdre was wonderful to deal with. She is as charming as her apartment and was responsive to all of our questions. Plus we were able to pay in U.S. dollars which was extremely convenient. Her manager, Marie-Noel was also fantastic. She met us at the apartment and went over all the details and also arranged for a cab to the airport on Sunday morning for our return home. There was a nice book of restaurants and tips in the apartment and we got to know the routes around the neighborhood easily. We also felt very safe despite being 3 women (who speak very little french). The apartment is very secure and in a nice area. Merci beaucoup to Deirdre for sharing her lovely home.
