This apartment is ideally situated in the middle of all the best that the left bank has to offer! Rue de Tournon is the continuation of the very central Rue de Seine, which runs through the heart of St Germain des Pres. The closest metro stops are Odeon and Mabillon, both which are a 2-3 minute walk from the apartment. The beatiful Jardin de Luxembourg is a one minute walk away from the flat as is the Eglise Saint Sulpice. The Carrefour de L'Odeon is a two minute walk away, and a little farther (five minutes on foot) is the Eglise Saint Germain and Cafe de Flore.

We had a great stay. We stayed for 4 nights with our two children and LOVED the location and feel of the apartment. The split bedrooms worked with one adult and one child in each. The neighborhood is quiet, prestigious, charming and the huge Windows that opened all throughout were incredible. We are so happy to not have chosen a hotel, and chosen the st Germain, Luxembourg location. The bedrooms are small, as typical in Europe, but the kids loved opening up the interior windows above the open courtyard and talking to each other across the space.
The intrigue of Paris begins when you enter this comfortable, spacious apartment on an elegant street in the heart of the city. The location is ideal. You are a 10 minute walk from Bd St Germaine des Pres, a plethora of good restaurants, the perfume of freshly baked bread, the daily life of the local inhabitants.
Having called, once we reached the address, a helpful man met us at the door, took the suitcases, and climbed the old spiral steps to the apartment. He opened the door and voila, a beautifully furnished apartment which has been totally modernized to include all of the necessary features for “life as a Parisian”.
The kitchen is beautifully appointed with refrigerator, stove, cooktop, microwave, Russell Hobbs electric kettle and coffee maker and dishwasher. We did not cook but were able to make use of the kitchen for some of the extraordinary prepared foods that are available nearby. The living area has two large windows looking out to the street below. In the evening, the romantic mood lighting made the return to “our home” a special treat.
The apartment is quiet, elegant and a perfect place to begin a holiday in Paris. The free wireless service made it easy to plan our days. One of the owner’s employees was only a phone call away to resolve any problems, but there were none.I have been to Paris many times, but staying here made the trip fantastic. I highly recommend this property.
Beautifully designed flat in the best part of Paris. Loved being there and would recommend to all. The independent room worked great for our teenage kids. Hope to come back.
Owner is super nice and really helpfull
Great location and amenities. We loved the apartment.
Beautiful apartment, perfect location and Ludovic really makes everything easy. Only snag was we went to managers apartment first and had a bit of trouble ringing him. Within 5 minutes everything was cleared up and we were in the apartment. I can't say enough about the location. Easy walk everywhere. Apartment was well furnished and very clean. Ludovic left clear instructions about how to use dishwasher, washer, etc which made it so easy for us to feel at home. Grocery, restaurants, river etc. all a few minutes walk. Very safe; we were with our kids (13, 13, 11) and they were able to walk to get snacks on their own and even go to the park. I know other said this, but their are a lot of stairs. It was no problem for us, but if you are not in great shape they may be a challenge for you. The A/C was a plus at night. THANKS AGAIN LUDOVIC!
Having lived in Paris I knew precicely what area I wanted to stay in while there on holiday - and this apartment was right in the sweet spot of St Germain. Tastefully decorated with the charm of 'traditional' Paris, coupled with the modern comforts of a renovated apartment this really is the best of both worlds. Every was smooth from keys pick-up, WiFi, a guide to the neighborhood and clear instructions on how to make the most of the flat and neighborhood. Our host even proposed airport pick-up, laundry, cleaning, etc. What a dream...
Tennis and playground found in the Jardin de Luxembourg, Swimming pool available in the Marche St Germain.
