About the property

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

Exquisite and central in Paris ! Nearby the Louvre, Notre Dame, and Saint Germain shopping area.

Located in an ancient stone building by the border of the Seine river, the studio is right in the art & antique shop district. It is facing the oldest bridge of Paris, the Pont Neuf which leads directly to the ile de la Cité, with Notre Dame Cathedral on the right. Crossing the Seine, one reaches the Louvre museum in 2 mn. The studio is also neighbouring the lively heart of the Saint Germain area and the Latin Quarter.

Transportation is the easiest : Quai des Grands Augustins is 2 mn from subway Cité or Saint-Michel and 5 mn from subway Odeon or Saint Germain des Prés.

This 24m2 studio is perfectly adapted for a couple (or a family of 3) for a short to medium length stay. It sleeps a maximum of 3 guests (1 DBL + 1 sofa DBL convertible). It is on the 1st floor (FR standard) with elevator.

Entering the studio, one notices the stone wall, the wooden floor and the wonderful wooden beams.

The living room has a large bay window, which offers a nice view on a quiet private courtyard full of greeneries.

Design of the studio was carefully done. Materials are of top quality, wood and metal and modern. The studio is furnished with a working desk, a TV, a table, chairs, shelves and a comfortable convertible sofa that sleeps 2.

The mezzanine can be accessed by a stair running along the wall. It can be used for sleeping only as it is not full body height. It is furnished with a double Futon (we limit rent to 3 guests. Ask specifically for 4 guests). Decoration is charming.

The designed open kitchen is equipped with microwave oven, refrigerator, stove…

Bathroom offers a modern comfortable shower with fixed and handy shower, sink and toilets. The bathroom washer washes but does not dry.

One immediately feels relaxed in this wood and stone atmosphere, bathed in light and viewing the greeneries in the courtyard.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

The unit is next to another studio of 24 m², VRBO listing n° 320494, which may be rented together for friends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at apartment Dauphine from April 3rd, 2013 to April 13th,2013. We took the train directly to the apartment and then retrieved the keys from the key safe with out any issues, my sister waited with the luggage while I retrieved the keys. The location is perfect for visiting Paris as everything was in close proximity to the apartment. The unit was clean and fully equipped for our needs. The court yard side was very quiet compared to the main road Quai des Grands Augustins. On several occasions, we were lucky to hear another person in the building playing a grand piano.

Thank you the use of the lovely apartment.

Feel like a Parisian!

  • 4 of 5

To begin, the location couldn't be better.

So perfect that we walked everywhere and the metro and RER is just 5 mins away. Restaurants, bakeries, Berthillon ice cream, Notre Dame, the Seine, and of course wine, are nearby for your pleasure. Want night life? - Close by. Want to discover terrific restaurants with history or bistros with great food. Also nearby. Concerned about being able to find an ATM - don't be just 5 minutes away. Need additional tourist information - a local tourist office is just down the street.

Getting the key is a breeze, you just head around the corner (truly close) and the directions for getting it and everything else in the apartment are explicit and easy to follow. AND - the hosts, while not on site, were terrific and ready to help us out when we had a personal issue.

We had an incredible time, and as added bonus - through the large windows which we kept open because the weather was perfect - we enjoyed faintly hearing (from across the garden right outside) an accomplished pianist playing piano in the afternoon. The thick walls and apartment fans kept us cool, but I could see that in a heat wave the loft sleeping area might get too warm and you'd want to use the sleeper couch. Also if you have problems being on your knees to move from far side of the bed to the short ladder you might forgo it for the sleeper as well. Books on Paris located in the cabinet were an added bonus and we took advantage of them. Highly recommended - We couldn't have been happier with our decision.

Wonderful Location

  • 4 of 5

On the whole, we were very happy with this apartment. The location was INCREDIBLE, in a great neighborhood and easy to walk to lots of sights, museums, restaurants, riverside walks, etc. With the fans, it wasn't too hot, even during a very warm week, and the step-by-step photo instructions for checking in were very helpful.

The bed was unfortunately not as comfortable as we'd like—being in the loft was fine, but the mattress itself wasn't great. Otherwise, no complaints!

Perfect location for walking between favorite museums and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and son and I loved our apartment on the left bank. Very clean and comfortable.

My husband appreciated the lift, since he is disabled. He can walk but climbing stairs is difficult and tiring.

It was the perfect location for us walking between all our favorite museums and gardens.

There are so many nice restaurants to choose from and endless beautiful walks. The instructions for picking up the key were very accurate. We wished there were instructions for the TV when it was raining one evening, but then found the books available far more interesting and useful.

We will definitely recommend it to friends. Thank you for our lovely home in Paris.

Owner's Response: Hi Dona, Thanks for your kind review and nice to know you loved the apartment and found it to be in a perfect location! Sorry that you didn’t find the TV instructions, they are very detailed and have been put in plastic folders stuck on the inside of the apt entrance door, as leaflets often disappeared. Hope to host you again in Paris! Sincerely, Jean

Lovely apartment in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as promised, and then some. A lovely apartment in absolutely the perfect Parisian neighbourhood - close to everything, including the métro, with Notre Dame and the Louvre a few minutes walk away, but nestled into the Left Bank enough to feel cosy and to enjoy the wonderful winding old streets and enjoy the atmosphere of sitting outside at a bistro. I've already recommended both the apartment and the neighbourhood to friends thinking of visiting Paris. The apartment is lovely, and the location is superb.
