Awesome way to experience Paris

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic experience with Claude the owner and Samy the property manager. The location of this apartment right around the corner from Notre Dame at this price is just amazing. This will absolutely be my first choice when visiting Paris again. You walk outside and you are in the heart of the Latin Quarter where there are tons of shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Claude was very responsive to emails and even made personal restaurant recommendations. I cannot say enough about the experience.

I just came back from a dream trip to Paris from a trip I booked at with Claude on his site. My husband and I had a magical time staying in the charming little flat and I couldn't imagine being in a better location at a better price. Thank god some of these charming, inexpensive places still exist in the center Paris. Claude was extremely informative and the place was exactly as he described. I can't wait to go back. Hopefully the exchange rate will be better next time :(

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. Clean, big enough for two. Fabulous location. The whole process was easy and straight-forward. The owners were easy to contact and very helpful. Would definitely return here on my next trip.

Part of Paris history!

  • 5 of 5

Owners/management were very easy to work with, clear & concise instructions & information. The studio is a beautiful part of Parisian history! The description is accurate, & if you are wanting to immerse yourself, this is a true treat:) It's an active, boisterous, sometimes loud neighborhood, but for my family, we absolutely appreciated everything the studio, Rue St Severin & the Quartier Latin had to offer! We are a family of three. It is close quarters, so if you're not comfortable with that situation, this may not be for your family. We were all in the same room, at almost all times, & my 19 year old daughter slept on the fold out futon mattress. She was in Paris - so she was happy & comfortable :) We had a fantastic experience, & love that this studio is a part of our Paris memories!

Cute studio in a lively neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This cute little studio really gave us an idea of what it would be like to live as a Parisian. It was small but had everything we needed to make it our home base for a few days. In a city like Paris, you won't be spending much time inside except when you are sleeping anyway! The location is fantastic. It is on the 2nd floor with windows looking down on a bustling historic street lined with cafes, bakeries, dance clubs, and small businesses. We found plenty of great places nearby to get dinner and people watch on a busy street corner, grab a late night cocktail, and even found an amazing jazz club just around the corner (Le Caveau de la Huchette). It's proximity to the Notre Dame, Ile St. Louis can't be beat, and it is close to several metro stops that will efficiently take you anywhere else you need to go. We were sent a lot of information in regards to how to get in to the building, cleaning details, and extra recommendations that bogged us down a little bit, but after getting to the apartment everything was fine. Note that the contract says you must pay a 45 Euro city tax, but if you book through VRBO it is included in your payment (we think the contract is for people who did not book through VRBO). Overall a fine place to stay in a great neighborhood.

Beautiful flat in the heart of the Latin quarter in paris

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay in this lovely flat in Paris! After much research the Latin quarter seemed the best location for me. Tons of shops, restaurants, and various metro stations close by. The location is perfect. For my 4 day stay I purchased a 10 pack of metro tickets and only needed 5. Empathy things were within walking distance. There is a marks and Spencer's food within 5 minutes walk- they had everything I needed for my stay! And I did walk to the laundry which is about 7 mins walk. (Note the different prices for different weights of laundry- I paid 3 euro too much for my load. Notre dame is so close I walked by it nearly every day!

Loved my time In Paris. Will be back and would stay here again!
