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 Sorbonne

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.

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.

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.
