Your “pied-à-terre” in the heart of Saint Germain des Prés, rue de Buci !

Culture, Shopping and Cuisine.

Constantly animated by an irrepressible lust for life, Saint-Germain-des-Pres has long been considered the city’s cultural heart, meeting point for existentialists, painters, writers, university professors, etc. The names of Baudelaire, Hugo, Musset, Picasso, Sartre, and Eluard are amongst the many associated with its past and have made this area historically renowned.

With its legendary bistros, brasseries and jazz clubs, Saint-Germain-des-Prés is the pivotal crossroad between the Latin Quarter, the Invalides, the Louvre and the Luxembourg Gardens.

It also offers top fashion disigners’ boutiques such as Yves St. Laurent, Givenchy, Dior, Rykiel, Lacroix, Armani, Vuiton, Cartier and many others.

Right in town center, all the famous spots are amazingly close : the Seine river and its banks, the Latin Quarter, the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sainte Chapelle, the Saint Louis Island, the Marais, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Invalides, the Louvre Museum, the Orsay Museum, the Pont des Arts, the Pont Neuf, the Théâtre de l’Odeon, the Saint-Michel Fountain, and so much more...

Rue de Buci meets rue Mazarine, rue Dauphine and rue de Seine and can only be referred to as the true epicentre of St Germain. Everything is at your doorstep, in the midst of a large number of cafés, brasseries, bars and restaurants, such as Les Deux Magots, Le Flore, Lipp, le Procope, Jacques Cagna and Louis XIII as well as art galleries, antique stores, theatres and cinemas (Odeon, Vieux Colombier, etc.).

Rue de Buci and its market:

The heart of Paris may technically be the Ile de la Cité, or symbolically the Eiffel Tower, but the rue de Buci and its colorful open air market are the city’s embodiment of the French love affair with food. The Marché is open daily, Tuesday through Sunday.

The 30 sq. meters apartment is on the 3rd french floor WITH ELEVATOR. It has been completely renewed with high quality standards and offers a cosy and warm atmosphere with exposed oak beams, hard wood floor and a nice view over the roofs of Paris and on the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Abbey. The entrance of the building is on rue de Buci but the flat faces a pedestrian street (rue de l’Echaudée) which makes it very quiet.

Two Metro stations (Mabillon and Saint Germain des Prés) are within one minute walk from the flat.

We put a lot of effort to offer an elegant decoration and a lot of storage space and we believe we succeeded in creating a fantastic apartment, an open invitation to share the thrills of the Paris loved by artists, poets and lovers and to experience the famous « Art de Vivre à la Française » in the City of Light !

Once the booking will be confirmed you'll receive a 33 pages instruction booklet to let you familiarize with the apartment, its equipment and the neighborhood. At your arrival we will personally check you in and we'll spend about 20/30 minutes with you to explain how all the appliances operate and to answer to any questions you might have. We'll also be available during your stay, should you encounter any difficulties. A bottle of french wine will be offered too.

Payment by PayPal accepted.

An excellent condo in the center of the action!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a five day stay at 32 Rue de Buci in September 2017 for our first trip to Paris and we can't imagine finding a better value. The location is awesome. Within less than a five minute walk, there are several restaurants, bars, patisseries, shopping and a grocery store. The Seine is a 10 minute walk. The Louvre is a 15 minute walk. Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens, The Orangerie Museum, and other great facilities are within an easy walk. The unit itself has been renovated in the past few years and is in good shape. Most importantly, it is clean. Special credit to Federico and Elsie for attention to small details within the unit that help make the stay easier, including simplifying communication. Elsie is particularly helpful. Dishwasher and laundry facilities sure were appreciated. Prospective renters should be aware of a need to climb 3 flights of stairs although there is a small lift if needed for 2/3 of that- it wasn't a problem for us in our early 60's though.

Great place to stay in Paris, all was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apt in Rue de Buci which means you are close by to restaurants, grocery market, cafés, bakeries, ice cream (GROM is the best) and of corse metro stations, bus station etc. There is an elevator although you will have to climb to the second floor( first in France) . I spent 12 nights and had breakfast and many dinners at home which was convenient for my pocket. Kitchen has everything you'll need. Bed is super comfy. Shower is tiny but it wasn't a problem for me.

A wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had another splendid stay in Federico's Rue de Buci studio. All communciations and transactions were very smooth. The lovely Elsie was there to meet and orient us. The location is great. Everything is within easy walking distance. Paris is safe and beautiful, and if you tire of Paris you have tired of life.

This was our third trip to Paris and our third apartment rental. For our first visit we stayed in a lovely place in the 11th but found it a tiny bit removed from the center of sites we wanted to see. On our second trip (with another couple) we stayed in the 6th (just around the corner from Rue de Buci) and loved the environment, which we wanted to replicate this time around. We would echo comments of other travelers with respect to: (1) Location: couldn't be more perfect. You're minutes away from several good restaurants, a grocery store, other food markets and boulangerie, plus a pharmacy and an ATM, not to mention Metro stops. A walk to the Seine is just 10 minutes away. (2) Layout of the apartment: The owner has made great use of the space while still leaving it with an open feel. The kitchen is well equipped. There wasn't a single item we needed that wasn't right at hand. The washer/dryer was a welcome addition as we had been travelling for 10 days prior to arriving here. (3) Communication with owner and manager: Federico was highly responsive to our initial and subsequent inquiries and requests. Elsie, who greeted us upon arrival, was a real gem. She patiently explained in detail how everything in the apartment worked, including directions on the phone as to how to reach her or Federico as any need arose. I believe she was also responsible for cleaning the apartment and replacing linens. It was perfectly clean and tidy and everything was in working order.

So you might ask, with all the glowing comments, why did I not rate this apartment as a 5? Though at least one previous reviewer advised us and other readers concerning the stairs and elevator location, what we weren't prepared for was the somewhat dingy warren of halls and stairs leading up to the apartment. To be fair, this was a personal matter for us and not an indictment of the property as a whole and the rating should probably be a 4.5 but VRBO/Homeaway doesn't enable this. I think the pluses definitely outweigh the minor and personal negative as it pertained to our experience and I would encourage you to stay here.
