I invite you to book your Paris stay in my stylish French apartment located on the Left Bank of the River Seine in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It's the perfect pied-à-terre, on one of the city's most delightful boulevards, right in the heart of Paris. Just steps away from the famous cafes like Les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp which were frequented by intellectuals and artists such as Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, Albert Camus and Pablo Picasso. Experience the freedom of having your own apartment in Paris.
It is 34 m2 with one bedroom, one bathroom, separate living room and comfortably accommodates 2 people. It has been refurbished in September 2011. It has a flat-panel TV, cable, DVD player, radio with mini-jack entry, phone, range, washer, microwave oven/convection oven and a high-speed Internet connection. It is located on the top (6th) floor, in a beautiful Haussmann building from the 1860's with NO elevator.
Smoking and pets are not permitted.
As a translator , I spent many years in big cities abroad, living in short-term furnished rentals. I bought this apartment in September 2011 and have tried to make it as pleasant and relaxing as possible for someone away from home.
My own apartment is in the neighborhood, rue Gay-Lussac, on the other side of Luxembourg Garden.
You just have everything at your doorstep:an open-air traditional market, a supermarket, a pharmacy, restaurants and cafés, elegant and trendy shops, cinemas, the River Seine at one end of the street, Luxembourg Gardens at the other end,concerts in small churches, beautiful historical monuments and buildings everywhere, half a dozen different buses, 2 metro stations - and RER for easy access to airport.
I also have a special feeling for this area since I was lucky enough to live in the neighborhood when I was a student.
Back then, I had a room (but with no view ! ) between Sorbonne and Odeon; I Ioved to go to art-house cinemas and buy food at the open-air Buci market , which has now sprawled to the foot of the building rue de Seine.
Have a drink on the balcony ( or on the sofa in winter!) while watching the sunset against the steeple of Saint-Germain des Prés church and the laser light at the top of the Eiffel Tower
