About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath

This cozy and charming, Non-Smoking apartment in the heart of the historical 'Montagne Sainte Genevieve' neighborhood is located on the first floor (American second floor) of an elegant turn-of-the century building.

Situated on the corner of Rue des Ecoles, the apartment’s windows look onto a picturesque historical street between the Pantheon and Boulevard St. Germain... This is the site of the theological colleges of medieval Paris. La Sorbonne and l’Ecole Poly technique are nearby, and when you step out of the apartment building, you can see the spires of Notre Dame de Paris, a short ten-minute walk.

The apartment is also within walking distance of the Musée de Cluny, the Jardin du Luxembourg, Boulevard St. Michel, Boulevard St. Germain, and the Seine at Notre Dame. Marche Maubert, an open market with great cheeses, meats, and produce, is open Tuesdays and Saturdays, and is just one block away.

The neighborhood abounds with food stores, restaurants, cafes, and shops; and many of the famous parks, cathedrals, museums, and sites of Paris are at your fingertips.

The Apartment: An elevator takes you to the French first floor (American second floor) where you enter the apartment and step into a small, elegant living room with a sofa, a round table large enough for four, and comfortable chairs. A stereo with CD player, tape deck, and radio is provided for your entertainment. The marble fireplace, fabric wall coverings, and attractive drapes give the room ambiance.

The fully equipped new kitchenette contains a small sink, four electric burners, conventional oven, microwave oven, full-size refrigerator with freezer compartment, a dishwasher, a coffee maker, as well as all the pots, pans, dishes, and utensils you'll need for both quick snacks and complete dinners. There is a convenient pass-through window and counter opening into the living room.

The bedroom has a double bed, a wall of closets, and a cable television. A new, well-lit bathroom contains a shower, washbasin, heated towel racks, toilet, and clothes washing machine. One-dial heat and air conditioning and double-glazed windows ensure your comfort both winter and summer.

With its wonderful Latin Quarter neighborhood brimming with shops, open markets, cafes, and restaurants; and its close proximity to the lovely parks, museums, and sights of Paris, this apartment will give you memories to last a lifetime!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location was superb: proximity to the metro, restaurants, Eric Kayser and his baguettes and croissants every morning. Because of the central location, we were able to walk to many of the sites we wanted to visit.

Wonderful little apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

W just returned home from 2weeks in Paris, during which we stayed in this apartment. Apart from the excellent location, which is around the corner from the Pantheon and near the luxemburg gardens and the Cathederal Notre Dame, the apartment itself was masterfully arranged to use every inch of space well. For example, there is a "3 in one" range, oven and dishwasher. We were met by a manager who showed us how everything worked and gave us useful information about the apartment and the area. There is a market a block away, innumerable restaurants and shops within a block, and with a good pair of shoes one can really walk to any location within central paris. We plan to return!

Fantastic location, comfy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three (two adults and a teenager) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy, clean Latin Quarter apartment for a week late July/early August. The space is small, but quite functional and the bed and new pull out couch were very comfortable. The kitchen is quite small and compact and we didn’t prepare full meals in the apartment, but we enjoyed buying food from the markets and local shops and eating at the table looking out at the activity on the street below. Friday and Saturday nights were quite noisy with people in the streets even with the windows closed. The air conditioning (which was great in the summer heat) helped mask the noise in the living room where our child slept, but the AC is quiet in the bedroom and didn’t block the noise. We used ear plugs and that helped.

The location of the apartment is fantastic. We walked everywhere in Latin Quarter – including close by bakeries, cafes/restaurants, cheese shops, and the handy little franprix a few doors up from the apartment. Place Maubert market and metro is a 2-3 minute walk away. Many major attractions are within easy walking distance – the Seine, Notre Dame, the Pantheon, the Sorbonne, Marche Maubert, Marche Monde, Rue Mouffetard, Jardin Des Plantes (the gardens and Museum of Natural History), Luxembourg Gardens, etc.

We highly recommend this apartment and hope to return some day.
