About Jane Ferguson

I am a Toronto lawyer who lived and studied in Paris for a year when I was in my early 20's. I met my American husband that year in Paris. Since then, Paris has always been a special place for me. We now live in Toronto with our two university age sons.

Jane Ferguson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jane Ferguson chose Paris

My dream of owing a pied-a-terre in Paris was formed the year I lived there in the early 80's and was finally realized in 2012 when I found this apartment in the perfect location in St. Germain des Pres on the border of the Latin Quarter and a short walk to the Seine - perfect for exploring Paris. It was an estate sale - a rabbit-warren of rooms badly in need of renovation. I took the plunge and spent 6 months doing a total gut and reno. As a result, everything (even the drywall, plumbing & electrical) is all new. I can't use it as much as I would like to so I am delighted to be able to share it with others.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is superb. The amenities complete. Everything is new but fixtures and finishes were chosen to give it a classic elegant Paris apartment feel. I hope you will feel at home there. (One of my repeat clients calls it 'our apartment'!)

Foodies and cooks will love the proximity to the Marche St. Germain food market (open each day but Monday - open 8:30 - 1 Tues - Sat & 8:30 - 1 Sunday) and the organic & eco-friendly Boulevard Raspail market and flea market on Sunday (between rue du Cherche-Midi & rue de Rennes, open 8:30 - 2:30 p.m. Sundays) and the famed epicerie/food hall at the Bon Marche department store south just into the 14th district - about a 15 minute walk from the apartment.

Perfect Paris Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at this wonderful apartment in Paris in June 2016. It is tastefully decorated with exceptional art. It is spacious, well equipped, well kept and clean with two bathrooms. The street is busy and noisy...we were there when Euro 2016 was on but the bedrooms are quiet as they are located at the back of the unit. The street is fun with lots of good restaurants, cafes wine bars and bars within a 2 block radius. It is centrally located and walking distance to numerous attractions...Louvre, d'Orsay, Notre Dame etc. The host there is very helpful, friendly and delightful to chat with. We thoroughly enjoyed this place and look forward to a return visit.

Home away from home....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are awaiting the taxi to take us to the train station and I have a few moments to reflect. On behalf of all 4 of us that enjoyed your apartment, thank you for the lovely experience! This was a very special trip, my son became engaged to a wonderful lady and we spent an amazing evening Parisian style with our future inlaws. Truly precious memories.

We were enchanted by the apartment, it was beautifully appointed and we were very comfortable, we had everything we needed and the neighborhood is fantastic! Thank you to Roland for making my son and his fiance's arrival so welcoming as we came later, and for making our departure so easy.

Thank you, and I can only dream that we may return someday.

A Wonderful Place to Stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this apartment. My sister and I spent 10 days there; my sister's first trip to Paris. The location was excellent as was the experience with Roland and Jane. Roland gave us a very thorough review of the place as well as recommendations for dinner and the best patisserie. We loved the neighborhood, the quiet bedrooms, the modern conveniences and having 2 bathrooms! The apartment is comfortable, bright and is every bit as attractive as the photos. I would recommend this in a heartbeat.

Marvelous experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as it should have been for a dream trip to Paris. We took our three granddaughters ages 9, 12 and 13...and this was a trip of a lifetime! We know Paris well having lived there for four years in the 80's, and have been back many times since then but this was to be a special occasion, so we had great expectations for this trip which were more than met. The apartment was wonderful, in the most perfect location, with the most perfect acomodations. Everything worked and everything was comfortable. The maids cleaned beautifully and when we entered the apt. all was spotless. The delightful little street had cafes and restaurants and was near so many boutiques, metros and cafes and of course the Boulevard St. Germain. Our girls could wander the street on their own which they loved. We cannot say enough about this lovely week in this well managed, clean and beautiful spot. Everything was better than expectations which were indeed high. Huge recommendations for this apartment on rue des Canettes!

A Gem in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently traveled to Paris and stayed in this delightful, perfectly situated, and perfectly appointed apartment. We were 5 people initially with my older son and girlfriend only there for a few days so we had plenty of room. What I love besides location was that the description of the apartment was spot on. And the owner was terrific to work with as well her manager who spent over an hour with us acquainting us with not only with the apartment but the neighborhood (always need to know where the nearest boulangerie is located). I recommend this apartment and this neighborhood to anyone wanting to try out living in a fun, bustling neighborhood. Can't wait to go back.

Ideal apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed a week here, 2 adult couples, first time in Paris. The location is wonderful, we walked almost everywhere we needed to go, from Eiffel Tower to Sacre Couer (well back from Sacre Couer) to the Latin Quarter to the Marais to the Louvre. The neighborhood is great for shopping (for those into that), but filled with small cafes and restaurants and bakeries and markets. Lively but no problem with noise. The apartment is very spacious, having 2 baths and a washer / dryer made travel much easier. Roland was a delight, and the car service he recommended was a great idea for travellers loaded with baggage. We enjoyed walking each morning to the bakery and coming back for coffee and croissants, and having the space just to hang out if we wanted.

In the heart of historic St.Germain des Pres, steps from St. Sulpice, and just south of Boulevard St. Germain off the rue du Four. Close to metro stops St. Germain and Mabillon. 1/3 of a mile to Luxembourg Gardens. Short walk to the Latin Quarter. In the heart of the city and the famous literary quarter and a 5 minute walk to Cafe les deux magots - a favourite haunt of Hemingway, Stein, F.

Foodies will love the proximity to the St. Germain market (open every day but Monday), the Organic market on the Boulevard Raspail every Sunday and the famous food hall a 15 minute walk south in Le Bon Marche department store. The apartment is on a small medieval street filled with restaurants, cafes, bars and little shops. A great launching pad for sightseeing, walking, shopping and more.
