Overview

About the property

18th century beams, flowers and trees, high standard amenities, 1BR, sleeps 4

Imagine a truly unique location, steps from Notre-Dame and close to everything, the modern comfort with the charm of the old Paris, and a private flowery terrace…

Picture yourself in the morning, waking up under 200 year old beams, in a cozy, comfortable apartment. Then walking down the block to a wonderful bakery, enjoying stunning views on Notre-Dame, and returning with croissants and brioche. You have a delightful breakfast on the terrace, under the hazel tree.

What would you like to do today? So many monuments to visit in the surroundings. Or a cruise on the Seine River, the start is right here. Maybe this morning you’d like to experience the local Maubert fresh market ; the kitchen is fully equipped for you to accommodate then these finest ingredients and prepare a gorgeous meal.

If the Saint-Germain shopping experience is only planned for tomorrow, you can also go for antiques, explore bookstores (you’ll love Shakespeare & Co), or take a stroll to the Louvre.

The apartment is so close to everything that you can come back for an afternoon break before heading out for dinner. Let’s appreciate for a while the tranquility of the garden terrace, with a glass of wine and some fine music.

For dinner, what about the small café we recommended to you? Or you can celebrate at the famous “Tour d’Argent” overlooking the Seine!

And then, you could close the evening with one of the best jazz sessions in Paris, in two medieval caves just nearby, and return home by the banks of the Seine, wandering at the stars, and lights of Notre-Dame. A perfect end for a perfect day.

Enjoy a quiet night in your lovely room. An prepare for yet another perfect day.

The apartment is 538 Sq Ft / 50m², with a 690 Sq Ft private terrace.

The large living room, with wooden floor and wooden beams, comprises a dining space, and a sitting area with direct access to the terrace. The leather sofa converts to an excellent quality bed. The living room is equipped with 42” LCD TV with cable, very-high-speed Wi-Fi Internet, Hi-Fi system, DVD player, and books on Paris, French literature, French cuisine…

The open-plan and fully-equipped kitchen includes a four-burner induction stove, an oven, a microwave, a Nespresso coffee maker, a dishwasher, a complete supply of cookware, contemporary dishes, cutlery and glassware. All you need is here.

The 690 Sq Ft terrace, in addition to the many trees and plants, has a dining area for 4 guests, and a sitting area with sofa and armchairs.

The quiet master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and spacious closet with mirrors.

The tiled bathroom has a bathtub with shower, a towel warmer, and a washing machine with tumble dryer. Toilet is separated.

About Aurelien Vigano

Welcome to Paris, where we live with our four sons.

We love the heart of Paris, where we have lived for 18 years. And during your stay you may well bump into us at the bakery or by the playground in front of Notre-Dame.

Aurelien Vigano purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Aurelien Vigano chose 5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter

We came to Paris as students 18 years ago, and never left the Latin Quarter since.

We have lived in this apartment for 13 years, we built a family here.

When our twins are born three years ago we had to move. But we would not leave the area, and our home is 5' away.

That also means we will (almost) always be here if you need some help, or tips.

What makes this apartment unique

We love this place, we entirely renovated it over the years, made it extremely functional, while keeping its charm.

And we fully refurbished it this year, for you.

Amazing Location and Flat!

  • 5 of 5

Lets think about what matters on vacation: location, ease of use, access to sights etc. This place exceeds them all. First, the location is PERFECT! extremely integrated in to the edge of the Latin Quarter--near markets for in house snacking and meals, across the street from Notre Dame and the train from the Airport. So easy after a long flight and long days exploring Paris.

Second, the flat itself is wonderful. Very clean, well equipped, and modern. It also has a wonderful terrace--no other homes in the area have this. The electric fireplace heats the entire home well.

Last, working with Aurelien was simple and easy--and he was there to answer any questions we had. We are planning a trip back and staying here. This is the best place in Paris to stay. Hands Down.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Great location with accessibility to all the tourist sites via the metro. The terrace was wonderful and welcome respite after a day on our feet. The bedroom is super small with no place for luggage. Nice to have a washer and dryer but it too is small. The host was very helpful and accommodating and thank him for his hospitality.

Just like the pix..best area to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay...many reasonablly priced restaurants because the Latin district nearby. Literally couple minute walk to train...Notre Dame is right outside your door! The private terrace is huge and beautiful! Great contact with owner..impeccably cleaned! The only negative would be a very large person would not be able to shut door to the toilet. We would definitely stay again...thank you so much the great 25th anniversary trip!

Excellent apartment with a fantastic terrace in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and very well equipped. It is in a quiet street but only a one minute walk from the river, so even though we were in the heart of a busy tourist area (Notre Dame) we felt relaxed immediately we entered the apartment.The highlight is the large terrace which is exactly as shown in the picture - perfect for relaxing and eating outside. The owner was very helpful and told us all we needed to know in advance. Would highly recommend and would happily use again next time we come to Paris.

The Latin Quarter: the historic heart of Paris for centuries.

Roman ruins, medieval churches, Renaissance libraries, 19th century cafés, today finest groceries, the past and present of France and Europe at your doorstep.

Both Paris airports are direct by train. The main train, metro and bus lines have stops nearby. So are the sightseeing buses and the river boats.

The rue de la Bûcherie is a quiet typical street, with some charming restaurants, galeries and historical buildings.

Action is just around the corner: Saint-Michel bars, top-end restaurants nearby, luxury shops a few blocks away.
