Saint-Germain-des-Prés Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose 6th Arrondissement St Germain des Pres

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.

What makes this condo unique

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

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

A perfectly located two room rental. For us, everything we needed. The steps are only hard with luggage (late 50s couple) and frankly we needed the exercise. The owner could not be more accommodating.

What a view!

  • 4 of 5

We chose this apartment for the view - and we weren't disappointed. It was a joy to see the rooftops of Saint Germain as the light changed throughout the day.

The location is perfect - within walking distance of all the major museums, but it doesn't feel that you are in a tourist zone. My favorite museum, Delacroix's home and studio, are only blocks away. We loved opening the big red doors on the boulevard to come home.

Thank you, Anne-Marie, for welcoming our jet-lagged selves and getting us oriented. You are wonderful host.

Great Paris 1 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Nicely centrally located and you can really walk to anything you want to see in Paris from here. Super safe neighborhood in Paris even if you stay out quite late. Subways is also really accessible and the St. Michel stop, which is a few blocks away, gets you on the RER B (to/from Charles de Gaule airport). Beyond the location, the apartment itself is really cute and perfect for a week stay. Lots of light with big windows and a view of the Paris rooftops. Eiffel tower even peaks through and you get a small view of it. Bed was very comfortable (though you have to like your mattress on the firm side); bathroom clean and functional; we didn't use the kitchen much but the amenities are there if you need them. Anne-marie was a very gracious host and very helpful with information about the neighborhood and Paris in general.

There are indeed quite a few stairs, and they were a challenge once when I realized I forgot something after I had just made made my way all the way down. I like exercise, so it wasn't a huge problem. My only real complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!

Location is incredible!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location! Anne-Marie's apartment was the ideal spot for our five day exploration of Paris. We walked everywhere from there and we are at so many wonderful cafes and restaurants right around the corner! Yes...there are a lot of stairs and you should be pretty fit to handle those each day, but we used them as justification for why we could always order dessert! Anne Marie was a wonderful host and gave us so many fantastic suggestions about the area!

Cute authentic parisian apartment

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 days and it was the loveliest apartment. It was rather big as well which I've heard is rare in Paris, it's definitely much more space than you'd get for a hotel room. It was in a great location with about 4 major metro stations within walking distance. The apartment had great giant windows that faced the street and we loved admiring the passersby. There was a grocery store right downstairs as well as tons of cafes, restaurants, and a taxi stand. We were within walking distance of so many attractions and the location could not have been better. Anne-marie was also fantastic, she answered all of my questions promptly and didn't mind waiting an extra hour when we were running late. She even helped us with planning our trip for Nice afterwards. We loved this apartment and can't wait to come back, thank you Anne-marie!
