|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
This exclusive two-bedroom / two-shower apartment is located in what is by common consensus the very best Paris location of all: the heart of smart St-Germain-des-Prés. The apartment is mere steps from the famed Café Flore and Café Deux Magots institutions, where the Paris intelligencia historically went to sip their coffee. Today the neighborhood is Paris' most sought-after.
The apartment was renovated from floor to ceiling using high-quality materials, fittings and furnishings. An architect and interior designer worked together to bring you a top-drawer result.
The apartment is on the 2nd french floor (third floor US) walk-up (no elevator but short staircase) of a charming restored 18th century building.
The entrance of the apartment opens onto the living room and also distributes the other rooms and separate lavatory. A clever glass-panelled partition in the hallway offers a view of the open kitchen, and a welcome sense of space and brightness.
The living room features two French windows, with ample seating for 4. The floors are finished in magnificent gray-stained hardwood parquet boards. The room is color-coordinated in subtle tones of beiges and grays. The overall feel is one of subdued refinement with a special Parisian cachet. It's a wonderful space to unwind in, with double glazing ensuring peace and quiet.
The contemporary oak kitchen is open on the living room and is fully equipped, including a dish-washer. There is a table and seating for four.
The first bedroom is street-facing (quiet with double-glazing), a queen-sized double bed and generous fitted closets. The room is finished in taupes and contrasting accents of fushia. This bedroom is associated with a stylish marble-clad bathroom.
The second bedroom is courtyard-side, with zenithal light coming in from a large skylight that has a black-out blind. The room is finished in delicate beiges, has a queen-sized bed (that can also be made as two singles) and fitted clothes closet. This bedroom has an ensuite shower area that has been cleverly designed as a luxury boudoir, so it feels almost like small private living room, exclusively for the occupants of the second bedroom.
Hi, my name is Carole. I own this apartment with my husband.
We both love Paris and especially the St Germain des Prés area because it has so much to offer (coffee shops, restaurants, great shopping, museums, the Luxembourg gardens)
We would be glad to have you as a guest and we hope you enjoy your stay in Paris.
Carole purchased this apartment in 2007
Located steps from the famous Flore and Deux Magots cafés. The exclusive and sought-after St-Germain location, with its quintessentially Parisian village-like atmosphere, is as central as you’ll find, so you’ll be within easy walking distance of almost of the best Paris sights.
This beautifully designed two-bedroom / two-bathroom is a very special place to stay. The bedrooms are perfectly quiet and the beds feature thick comfortable mattresses, so you’re sure to sleep well.
We are back in Singapore! Thanks for allowing us to stay in your wonderful apartment which is convenient and safe. We enjoyed your apartment very much and took good care of it. We will surely stay there the next time we are in Paris!
The place was exactly what the pictures reflect. My sister and I spend 5 days there and it could not have been better. Location was great, close to shops, metro and if you like to walk this is the perfect spot. I would highly recommend using their transportation to and from the airport. If we go to Paris again we will stay here for sure. We had a great time Thanks Carole - you were great!
We loved this apartment for our first week in Paris. Cute and comfortable and close to everything on St. Germain. Carol and her team made us feel welcome from the start and we really enjoyed the apartment and our stay. We'll be back!
This was an awesome apt in the heart of it all- walking to distance to almost all! Great layout with 2 bedrooms- quiet unit but step outside and you are in the heart of St.Germain des Pres! The Owner has a notebook of all the best local restaurants, how everything works in the apt and so on....she was also always on with her email if you had any additional questions. Staying here vs a hotel really made our trip so much more worth it!
We opted for a driver from the airport through the owner and they carried our bags up and down the narrow staircase which was worth the $$$. It is 2 narrow flights up so it can be difficult to get large suitcases upstairs.
The apartment is as advertised. It is a fabulous location. It is clean, modern, and very comfortable for a family of four. The reservation and check-in process was efficient. We used the driver that Carole suggested to pick us up at the airport. He met us in the terminal, had the keys to the apartment, and helped us inside. The only issue (which was a big one for us) really has to do with the noise from the street. As described, the apartment sits directly on Blvd. St. Germain, which is a very busy and loud street 24 hours/day. The living room and master bedroom face the street. There are 3 large windows that open but because of the noise, we could rarely keep the windows open. This became problematic because it was rather warm in Paris this week. While there is some sort of portable air conditioner in the living room, it must vent outside through the window and without being able to keep the windows open, we were not able to use it. It is a rather small portable unit regardless and there is no way it could cool much of the apartment anyway. If not for the very loud noise and heat, which made it difficult to sleep on a few of the nights, this apartment is really terrific. We knew that Blvd. St. Germain is busy but based on the other reviews, we booked it anyway. For us, I don't think the way the noise was described by others was accurate. If you don't plan to be in Paris during the warmer months or you don't care about the windows being open or you don't care about the noise, this is a great place at a great price.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this charming apartment! Perfect location close to so many sights and famous cafes. Also perfectly appointed with everything you need (not skimpy on soap, paper towel, toilet paper, etc. like some places). Even a dishwasher and washer/dryer and separate water closet room! Really nice quality quiet windows and lovely furniture and decor, also a comfy master mattress. Husband and I took our two teenage boys and it was perfect.
This apartment is a gem right in the heart of St. Germain des Pres. Not only are fantastic stores, museums and restaurants within easy walking distance but so also are major metro stops so you can get anywhere in Paris easily. The luxury apartment is lovely with more amenities than expected - not only a fully stocked kitchen but even washer & dryer. We were 3 adults and with the two bedrooms there was plenty of room. The owner was extremely helpful in working out the arrangements and could not have been more accommodating. We will definitely return.
