5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

You will feel so much 'at home' in our beautiful Petite Maison, on the easily accessible ground floor of a lovely 17th century building, situated in one of Paris' most charming neighborhoods. Our little 'quartier' is featured in Frommer's 'Memorable Walks in Paris;' it is truly one of the most historic, lovingly preserved areas in the entire city.

Our historic two-bedroom, two-bath 820 s.f. pied a terre is tucked away on a serene side street; you'll awaken to the sounds of birds chirping in our private garden, along with the bells of the magnificent cathedral of Notre Dame, which appears like magic when you turn out of our front door.

Our 'little house' in the city (so-named by some Parisian friends) is just steps from the bouquinistes (booksellers) which line the Seine, and a five minute walk to the famous Place St. Michel and the excitement of the Latin Quarter. Within minutes you can see the Sorbonne, the Roman baths and Unicorn Tapestries at the Cluny Museum, take a quick stroll to Ile St. Louis, visit the Conciergerie where Marie Antoinette spent her waning days, or take in a fabulous classical concert at the famous St. Chappelle built by Louis the IX.

Our lovely neighborhood is very French, a rarified historic district filled with galleries, artisans, restaurants and unique shops. The wonderful open air market on Place Maubert is a three-minute walk, as is the Metro and a plethora of bakeries, wine purveyors and a fabulous cheese shop.

The apartment itself is exceedingly comfortable and handsomely furnished. It features two quiet bedrooms (one upstairs, and one down), each with a tres chic new en suite bathroom -- perfect for two couples or a family. Both can be made up with two twins, or one king sized bed. A comfortable day bed in the living room accommodates a fifth guest. The spacious living room is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends and recount the day's adventures.

The recently renovated, gorgeous kitchen equipped with high end European appliances is fully equipped to whip up some French cuisine using your finds from the market at Place Maubert. Petite Maison's unique architectural features include classic 'tommettes' (old tiles) on the floor and a barrel vaulted brick ceiling in the living room. A striking iron chandelier illuminates the large dining table, where you can spread out your repast, and bask in the light from two walls of windows. We are also blessed with a private garden, a lovely place to enjoy a morning coffee during the warm summer months, and a working fireplace to keep you cozy on winter nights.

Our Paris based American manager is just a phone call away should an unexpected problem arise. He is also available to assist with restaurant, event or tour reservations, as well as to arrange transportation. A personalized 'users guide' filled with our personal recommendations will help make the most of your sojourn in our favorite city in the world. A DVD with French themed movies; a CD player with music library and travel guides are also on hand should you decide to enjoy a quiet evening 'chez nous.'

The nightly rate for up to five guests is $450; IMPORTANT: Please note that our cancellation policy is 90 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF OCCUPANCY - VRBO/HomeAway doesn't allow this option in their system, but in our experience, since European travelers normally plan/book their vacations far in advance, this period of time is required in order to rebook our rental. Your 50% deposit (required to reserve dates) is fully refundable up to 90 days before the date you arrive; once the balance is paid the reservation is non-refundable. We will process any deposit refunds outside of the VRBO system.

If you are looking for lovely, comfortable and quiet accommodations just steps away from all the best Paris has to offer, look no further than Petite Maison.

Elegant and cozy.....

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travelled with long time friends for a week in Paris. I booked Petite Maison months in advance after seeing the pictures on VRBO. Michelle was incredibly helpful and offered many spot on recommendations for food and off the grid spots to see. We had very high expectations for the apartment and it exceeded them all by a mile. Perfect location just steps from the Seine and Notre Dame. Quiet little street near everything you might need (great pastry, cheese shop, grocery etc.). The apartment is lovely and the small private courtyard was bliss. We love Paris and when we return Petite Maison will be a part of that trip again. Thank you for sharing this very special place Michelle.

Charming, cozy and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Paris, traveling with our daughters age 15 and 20, and we couldn't have been more thrilled with our accommodations! Petite Maison is perfectly located on the left bank just a stone's throw from Notre Dame on a quiet cobblestone street. The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable, and we welcomed the washing machine and dryer after a week in London beforehand. We could easily walk to many locations nearby such as Jardin du Luxembourg, the Pantheon, Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Marais District for fabulous shopping! There are many cafes on the corner and markets nearby and even a vegetarian restaurant, Restaurant Vegetarien Biologique, (not easy to find in Paris!) that thrilled my vegetarian family. Michelle and David were wonderful to deal with and gave us lots of great advice and tips for our stay. One highlight we discovered was the walking tour "Set In Paris" only two doors down, where Antoine took us around movie locations in the area. It was surprisingly informative and entertaining, and we enjoyed watching "Midnight in Paris" on DVD (they have a wonderful French themed selection at the apartment) afterwards. We are anxious to return and will definitely stay here again.

Very quiet, convenient and Parisian

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home in Paris. Very quiet and spacious enough for our 3 adults and one 9 year old child. It was warm while we were there but the flat was comfortable enough even without AC. Michelle and David were very helpful. Our stay was worry free. We loved the cafes just 25 feet from the door toward the Seine. Particularly the one on the left which was affiliated with La Reminet restaurant. In the other direction toward Place Maubert there are many cafes, wine stores, and the twice weekly market. We would return.

Perfect location great for family stay

  • 5 of 5

I searched a lot of properties in Paris before our annual family vacation. I compared what hotels and other rental apartment, this one standed out right away. Michelle was wonderful helping me with my questions and book us the dates we desire. We have 5 people staying for 7 nights. The place is very close to metro maulbet mutualite(may spell wrong). It is a quite sweet in the very busy and center location. We absolutely loved the markets every other day which gave us lots of options for fresh veggie and fruits. The local butcher, grocery store, pastry and wine stores are just step away from the place which really made our stay more memorable and like home. Nortre dame is right in front of the street and it was so beautiful to hear the church bell once in a while. Serine river was so close and loved the walk along the river. Apartment had everything a family need, washer, dyer, stove and fridge. We didn't even need to buy cooking oil and salad dressing! Hair dryer, robes are nice to have for sure. The garden is so beautiful and peaceful. My baby loved to run around in the garden. The place is secure and has at least 3 doors for you to get into the property. We felt very safe here. Restaurants are around the corner and they were very authentic and there are so many options for your budget and taste preference. We often take the metro to go to other places and it is very easy and fast. Drive from airport is about 40-50 min. You might consider train if you travel light. We got a private pick up service which costs 75 euro for 5 people.

You will enjoy so much here as the location and service is magnificent. Looking forward for our next trip to Paris in petite Maison.

Petite Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I believe "parfait" is French for perfect and that is exactly what the Petite Maison is. The flat is wonderfully decorated as you can see in the pictures here. There is everything a traveler needs - including those phone chargers you might have forgotten. The convenient location makes getting around Paris a breeze. I highly recommend this flat.

Our trip could not have been more perfect. Traveled with my mother, mother in law and two teenagers. The apartment was everything and more! Michelle and David were awesome with every recommendation. From our pick up at the airport, to places to eat...perfect! I will definitely go back and hope to stay here again! The location is superb! Thank you Michelle! Loved the nespresso machine every morning!
