About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The apartment you dream of discovering is located on the 3rd floor of an 18th century building in the Latin Quarter. The building has been renovated and the staircase has been completely restored. Our Paris home has been renovated completely to our taste and comfort. The corner living room overlooks the Place de la Contrescarpe; its four french windows fill yhe room with light.

The restful master bedroom, complete with its own complete bathroom, has a king-sized bed. The tasteful second bedroom is equipped with a queen-sized bed, and is adjacent to the second full bathroom. The fully equipped galley kitchen opens to the dining area.The study has a comfortable sofa, large desk and cable T.V. offering all English language news channels

The neighborhood has every amenity; bank, drugstore, bakery, convenience store, restaurants, health club. There are two food and flower markets nearby - on Place Monge open 3 times a week and one at the foot of Rue Mouffetard open every day but at its most colorful on Sunday.

The apartment can be rented by the week or by the month. The apartment manager will greet you at arrival and will show you how everything in the apartment works. The manager does not live on the property, but is available by phone.

Many of our guests have found it convenient to be met at the airport and we are happy to make arrangements with the driver we have used for over 20 years. The driver will wait as you exit customs and payment is made directly to the driver. Let us know if you are interested in this service.

About Rodney Smith

25 years ago my wife and I renovated 3 townhouses in New Orleans’ French Quarter, creating the Soniat House Hotel. We traveled frequently to France to collect its antique furnishings. Fodor’s named it one of the 20 best hotels in the world and it’s included in ‘1000 Places to See Before You Die’. Because of the remarkable response to the furnishings, we opened our antiques Galleries twelve years ago and have now become a source for many of America’s best Interior Designers.

Rodney Smith purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Rodney Smith chose 5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter

One thing leads to another; the success of the antiques business keeps us returning frequently each year and led to the creation of our apartment on the left bank. Located in our favorite part of Paris, it is comfortable and filled with light, and it is furnished with things we love.

Once again , thank you for a great experience.

Elegant furnishings; excellent location; staff assistance.

  • 5 of 5

Our week in this beautiful apartment overlooking an interesting square on the Paris Left Bank simply flew by. The accommodations are both spacious and fully modernized. The hosts supply luxury linens, all the kitchen equipment you can use, and free Wi-Fi, which made it possible to research all the museums and events in Paris. Easy bus, Metro and market locations are close by.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The Smith apartment is both charming, comfortable and cozy - Paris was very cold this January! We loved looking out of the living room windows into the Place Contrescarpe with its restaurants and activity. The neighborhood is filled with those tiny stores that make Paris Paris, - wine, cheeses, wonderful breads, etc. In addition, there is a full-service market in easy walking distance.

One can also walk to The Cluny Museum, the gorgeous St. Etienne Church, the Jardin des Plantes and Place Monge which has a wonderful market three times a week as well as a Metro stop. In other words, a full "living in Paris" experience.

WONDERFULLY 18TH CENTURY WITH MODERN CONVENIENCES

  • 5 of 5

I'VE BEEN TO THIS APARTMENT NUMEROUS TIMES AND I'M HAPPY TO REPORT THAT THERE ARE TWO GREAT NEW THINGS...NO MORE RICKETY STAIRS (NOW RESTORED TO THEIR 18TH CENTURY GLORY)

AND NO MORE OBNOXIOUS CATS!! A FEW OF THE REASONS MY FRIENDS AND I CONTINUALLY RETURN TO THIS BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED APARTMENT ARE NUMEROUS: EASY ACCESS TO THE METRO (2 STOPS)

THE OUTDOOR MARKET AT PLACE MONGE;THE ATMOSPHERE OF FUN AND JOYOUS LIFE IN THE SQUARE ; AND THE GREAT BONUS OF THE WORLD-RENOWN SHOPPING STREET,RUE MOUFFTARD.

I WOULDNT STAY ANYWHERE ELSE IN PARIS, AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this apartment highly. Having a driver pick us up and drop us off was great. One less thing to worry about. The driver greeted us at the airport and than came to pick us up on time for the train station. The manager greeted us upon our arrival and showed us around. He was very helpful. The location was fabulous. Close to metro, restaurants and shops. Loved looking out the window at the beautiful plaza and cafes. Absolutely loved it. Cant wait to visit Paris again and stay in this apartment.

Owner's Response: Christine, Many thanks for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit. One point of clarification to other travelers, though. As the apartment is not child-proofed, we only take children 10 and older. Donna, for Rodney and Frances

Beautiful just as shown

  • 5 of 5

Great location, many shops and restaurants. The only thing I have to say is that I wish we would of been informed that they were remodeling the stairways. This was our first vrbo rental and we walked into a stripped stairway our hearts sank for a second, but once we opened the door into the apartment it was great. Over all we had an amazing time in Paris and in this apartment!

Totally would stay again and recommend.

Happy Camper

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples who stayed for a week and loved the location on a small plaza near many intimate shops and restaurants. Having a bathroom for each couple was critical for us. There is a large food store nearby if you want to enjoy your meals at the apt. which has all the cooking necessities.The manager was helpful, met us on arrival and even made a restaurant reservation for us. We very much appreciated the on-time pick up and delivery to the airport which is included in the rental rather than figuring out the RER (train). There is much light and you can open a window or two and listen as though in an outdoor restaurant while having dinner. There is a slight challenge going up the wooden stairs but once the luggage is away on the second floor(3rd floor in the US) it is very easy access. The apt is located about 4-5 blocks from the Seine so after dinner you can wander to the River, take a boat ride or watch the people. ON the weekends there is an enormous street market which we enjoyed. Bottom line- we would rent again.

Map

Car: not necessary

The food and flower open air market at the foot of Rue Mouffetard is open daily but is wonderful on Sunday. Alternately, the market at Place Monge is open 3 times per week. A visit to the Luxembourg Gardens is a must and the nearby Museum of Natural History is fascinating. The neighborhood has boulangeries, patisseries, fromageries, ethnic and French restaurants, bank, drugstore, cafes, convenience store - everything you need. Details are on page 210 of the Zagat guide in the study/TV room. Two Metro stations are within walking distance. If you aren't interested in the nearby health club, you can join the firemen on their fitness runs in the Luxembourg Gardens.
