Sorbonne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 separates WC, sleeps 6

Your home is situated on Rue de la Harpe -Relatively calm and cobblestoned along much of its length, it runs between Place St Michel and Boulevard St Germain. Regarded as one of the most evocative and romantic streets of Paris you are surrounded by a multitude of restaurants, bars and even a Jazz Club creating an atmosphere that Paris is so famous for.

Located on the 4th floor of a solid 17th Century building with elevator access. Your apartment is light, bright and extremely quiet. Room disposition creates an amazing warmth and spacious feeling that makes you feel right at home.

A double security door ensures complete safety and opens onto a small entry. From there you enter an extremely spacious lounge/living area featuring an American style open plan kitchen.

Your home: The apartment is ideal for those wishing to visit historic Paris on foot. Icons such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Ile de la Cite and Ile St Louis, the Sorbonne University, Luxembourg Gardens, The Pantheon (where Victor Hugo, Voltaire and many other famous French are buried), Les Halles, Pompidou Centre are all within easy walking distance. The nearby area is also crammed with many museums including the famous d’Orsay Museum and the Louvre. Adjacent to the Latin Quarter are districts like St Germain des Pres (also full of fashion shops, restaurants and bars) and the Marais (Paris oldest area).

Now if you wish to benefit from the very well set up public transport in Paris, you have the choice between the metro (on 2 different district lines) a plethora of buses, the RER (a straight ride to Charles de Gaulle airport) and the bateau-mouche with a stop meters away from the house. And a very handy and well provided for taxi rank is also meters away!

Our Property Manager, Joseph, keeps the apartment impeccable and is reachable 24/7 by phone and him or his assistant will be happy to help you with basic concierge services like restaurant suggestions, planning a day trip outside Paris or organising a Baby Sitter for an evening etc. etc.

Kitchen: Fully equipped with everything needed to make that so Parisian dinner. Your kitchen features a built-in micro-wave, full size dishwasher, convection oven, Nespresso Coffee/Cappuccino machine, tea pot, toaster, and a four burner electric induction stove. Not to mention the clothes washer/dryer conveniently located. All the pots, pans, and utensils you’ll need, as well as a full complement of dishes, cutlery, glasses to set an inviting table.

Living room: Two large double glazed windows open onto rue de la harpe where a stretch of the neck will have you looking onto the Seine. A large leather sofa (that also sleeps two) together with a comfortable sitting chair welcomes the tired visitor. You can relax in front of the 40” plasma TV featuring over 140 cable channels including CNN and BBC, watch a DVD or listen to music from the integrated IPod Dock, USB, CD player or French radio – (you can also play stored movies, TV shows etc from your iPod to the plasma screen).

About Ghislaine Bouskila

I am french, a mother of 3 and happily married with an Australian man.

The only problem is that I am not living in my beloved Paris anymore.

In 2010, we were very happy to get this apartment in the heart of Paris. We were even luckier that the apartment didn't need ant major renovations to be done as the previous owners had done an amazing job.

The design of the apartment and its location are amazing. i pinch myself often to make sure I am not dreaming!

Ghislaine Bouskila purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ghislaine Bouskila chose 5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter

It is perfect for my family of 5 and if you are going to be in Paris for a limited amount of time you amy as well be in the most fun and practical place. I love being right in the historical centre of Paris where i can access museums, restaurants and fashion shops just by foot and the jardin du Luxembourg, where my mother use to take me as a child is also right next door!

What makes this apartment unique

The clever design of the architect and the interior designer make us feel that the apartment is a lot bigger than what it is.

The rooms are big. The main bedroom has an ensuite and a separate toilet.

Then the second room also has bathroom and a separate toilet. Its like having 4 bathrooms!

The apartment is so light!

Another beauty is Joseph, our property manager who is so professional. The apartment is being kept impeccable at all times and he is always available for any questions or need one may have!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay in your apartment. Our first time renting an apartment vs a hotel room and well worth it.

Best Paris stay - Ever..

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at almost evry hotels in the Latin quarter - for the last 7 years. Very small rooms from 8 sqm - to 15 sqm. But not any longer. Since we found this apartment - in the very heart of the Latin quarter area - we will not change any more. Perfect - is the best description for this apartment. And yes - we have already booked this apartment for the same periode in 2016,2017,2018........

For the brave Norwgian Vikings

Very welcoming & gracious apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Paris and felt the apartment was very comfortable. We received a warm and informative greeting from Joseph, the property manager, who made us feel right at home! The location is central with easy walkability to Notre Dame and other city highlights. The interior of the apartment was clean, well-appointed and quite comfortable. Thank you Ghislaine and Joseph for a lovely stay!

Great apartment, fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for (unfortunately only 3 nights) at this great place with our two adult kids. The apartment works well for 4 people - and the 2nd bedroom can be setup for a couple or 2 separate beds. What actually is under advertised in the listing is that there are 2 FULL baths in the unit. The location is perfect - it is in a very lively (with tourists) area with lots of restaurants and shops right outside the front door - it is also very central to all the sights - about 100 m to the Seine, 200 m to Notre Dame, very close to Park de Luxemburg, 100 m to Metro and RER to airport. Unit is on 4th floor (5th in US) - elevator is small for max 3 people - but no problem - we made it a competition to not use the elevator and take the opportunity for a little exercise instead.

Great place - will come back.

Owner's Response: Yes, I find it hard to explain that the 2 full bathrooms are actually separate from the 2 WC. I know it makes a big difference, it is almost like having 4 bathrooms! Thank you for your review and we look forward to have you back soon!

Lovely Apartment, Fabulous Location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is a special gem in the heart of the Latin Quarter, spacious and accommodating for my family of five, and conveniently located to the Metro, eateries, shopping, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the River Seine. We were greeted by the friendly and helpful Joseph, who gave us all the information about the apartment and its amenities, including a very descriptive notebook containing everything one would need to know about the internet service, TV, telephone, washing machine, etc. This was very helpful. There is a market directly across the street and a patisserie 3 or 4 shops away at the corner for coffee and croissants, not to mention cafes and restaurants everywhere along the narrow cobblestone streets of this enchanting district. One surprise we came upon, not far at all from the apartment, was the Eglise Saint Severin, one of the oldest churches still standing on the Left Bank, built in the late Gothic style. The boulevards St. Michel and St. Germain intersect one or two blocks away where there are always taxis available if one does not want to use the Metro. Also, the apartment is surprisingly quiet considering the lively streets below, however this is mainly due to the fact that the streets are pedestrian only. There is no air-conditioning and although there were a few nights that were quite warm, the open windows and fans were sufficient. Overall, this apartment was a good value for the size, cleanliness, and comfort it provided my family of five, also having 2 bathrooms and 2 water closets was definitely a bonus. Nicely decorated too! We had a wonderful time in Paris and would stay at this apartment again.

Owner's Response: We have also found that the cross ventilation from the windows and the addition of fans are being enough for even a hot summer in Paris. We are happy that you enjoyed the area which is at the heart of what Paris has to offer: food, culture and fashion. Joseph's professionalism is to be commended.It is fabulous to be welcomed and to know that with any questions that one may have, he will be there in no time. Thank you for taking the time to write this review and we very much look forward to welcoming you back in Paris!

Comfortable, well maintained apt on lively street.

  • 4 of 5

The property manager, Joseph, was very professional and provided us with good information about the apartment and area. The apartment was well maintained, clean and comfortable. The welcome basket of milk, juice, wine, and jams was much appreciated.

We would recommend the property for two couples or a family with its two bathrooms and separation of bedrooms.
