Overview

Saint Thomas d'Aquin Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

Newly renovated! Live like a Parisian in the center of Paris in the much sought-after 'Carré des Antiquaires' neighborhood, the high-end antique area. This ideal location is within 5 minutes walking distance from the Musée d'Orsay, the Louvre and St. Germain des Près. The apartment is on the 2nd floor (no elevator) of a 16th century building and former convent. The interior courtyard is cobble-stoned and you have an upholstery workshop on the ground floor. There is a digicode for security to enter the building from the street.

The apartment itself is a bright and sunny one-bedroom (30 m sq) apartment with high ceilings and unique art. It has been decorated by an interior designer. The bedroom has a Queen size bed (160 x 200 cm). There is a separate toilet and off the bedroom you have a bathroom with a sink and shower. The living room contains a comfortable fold out couch, a dining area with an antique table and chair set and a modern kitchen. Electric heating.

The location is very central and central Paris is easily accessible on foot. The closest metro station is rue du Bac (line 12) or St. Germain des Près (line 4) or you can walk across the river and through the Louvre to catch the line 7 at Palais Royal. The RER C station Musée d'Orsay (which takes you to Versailles) is conveniently located right down the street.

About Anne

I am American and my husband is Parisian so we were looking to buy a place in a neighborhood we love. This apartment is ideally suited to being a vacation rental since it is located within one of the most charming neighborhoods of Paris.

Anne purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Anne chose 7th Arrondissement Eiffel Tower

The location is exceptional and the building has lots of charm. We were looking to buy an investment property and this fit out description of the type of place we'd like to stay if we rented an apartment on vacation.

What makes this apartment unique

Walk out your door and buy a fresh baguette right down the block and then stroll over to the Louvre and the Tuileries gardens or walk to the famous literary cafes for your morning coffee.

Anne is amazing! She has thought of everything to make staying here a comfortable experience, including a bottle of champagne. Thanks, Anne! The apartment has everything you could want including excellent WIFI, Mac laptop computer, and VOIP telephone. My daughter was able to write a school paper while we were there. Anne has compiled a notebook of information about staying in the apartment. It includes reviews of places to eat, place to buy groceries (Note, the market closes at 9 pm.), best times to visit various museums and sites, how to use the washer/dryer (which was still a little challenging), etc. You name it, it's in the book. I would highly recommend this apartment!

Loved location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location! It was quiet (even though only 1 block back from river) and very conveniently located to public transportation and attractions. We walked in the Tuileries Garden directly across river, every day. Also across river from The Louvre and a couple blocks from the Musée d'Orsay. The accommodations were as described and we felt very safe in the area, day and night. Might be a bit small for more than 2 people. Many guide books, maps and other helpful info in the apartment. Toaster and microwave provided; no oven. We would definitely stay there again.

Quiet apartment perfectly located in Paris

  • 5 of 5

After 8 days at this apartment - walking and Uber-ing all over Paris, I can't think of a better location. It's an easy walk to the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Rodin, Notre Dame and many other places. There's a GREAT bakery about two blocks away, a full grocery store a couple blocks further, and great cafe's and restaurants all around it. We walked to the Eiffel Tower, then to Arch de Triumph and back to the apartment in a day. Then, grab an Uber to get to places further away...

We made breakfast in the small but totally usable kitchen most days, which was very convenient to be able to do. All the dishes, pans, and utensils you'll need are there. The bed is very comfortable, and at night, the apartment was basically totally silent and felt very secure. There are a bunch of good books on the shelves: novels, guide books, art books, etc. There's a dish washer and clothes washer as well! WiFi is fast and reliable and very handy to book an Uber - by the time you book a ride and walk down to the street, the car is there waiting for you!

The shower and bathroom are very small - this is my only negative about this property. The shower is probably 2 feet by 3 feet. It's perfectly clean and functional - but small small small. The toilet is in a small, separate room, and it also quite cosy. The apartment is up two flights of rather narrow stairs also - that's didn't pose a problem for us, but it might for older folks.

Perfect location, compact apt with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this apartment over a long new years' weekend. We never used a taxi, you can walk everywhere from here. Ten min walk to Musee D'orsay, shopping in Saint Germain, Pont Neuf, the Louvre. The apartment is small, but coming from NYC we are used to that. The bed is comfortable, and having a small kitchen makes all the difference when you want to have a leisurely morning with some coffee and pain au chocolat that you picked up the evening before from a bakery. Anne was very easy to work with, we handled everything via email. I strongly recommend this as an alternative to a hotel room - you will get more room than a hotel room and more flexibility with a small kitchen. Perfect for a couple.

Charming, beautiful apartment in a quiet neighborhood. Close to most attractions, especially for museum lovers. It's only 1 block away from the Seine River bridge that take you to the Louvre main entrance. Many other museums very close by. We walked to everything! Anne was great to work with and very responsive. She even reserved a taxi for our return trip to the airport, since we do not speak French. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Very centrally located on a quiet street, right near the Orsay museum. Property owners are fluent in English and French, and were very responsive and accommodating during our stay. A+ overall.
