A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a very quiet and elegant flat in a peaceful building next to Notre Dame Cathedral. We are a family of three (with a teen boy) and even if the apartment isn't big, it is so well arranged you have enough room for your luggage and even for the things it happens to buy if it is sales' time... The owners decorated this flat with an excellent taste and they provided it of whatever you may need. We really recommend it!

Absolutely perfect! The apartment was the perfect retreat for our Paris vacation

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to stay from start to finish. Once off of the rail line from the airport we were met on the street in front of the building so there was no guessing or wandering unknown streets with suitcases in tow, a nice treat when unfamiliar with the city. A gorgeous fern filled courtyard welcomed us off of the street and up one flight of a nice wide stairwell (not always the case in France) and we were settling in. Apartment is spacious and well layed out with a comfortable living room with windows to the courtyard. Beautifully furnished and a real treat to have laundry in house. The bed was comfortable with perfect shades to dial in time zones. Though we didn't cook while there the kitchen was perfect for dining in.

I can't say enough great things about this apartment. Absolutely prime location just steps from Notre Dame, food, boulangerie, art, street market, bus line, metro etc. Walking distance from all of the main attractions like Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame(stones throw), Seine River.

But the best of all....QUIET. Did not hear one siren, motorcycle, taxi, bus, person, airplane, dog, neighbor, footstep...not a peep the whole time. Napped with window open midday most days in absolute peace. In a city that never sleeps like Paris this is rare I assure you.

It really doesn't get any better than this apartment. A cherry on top for us

Perfect place to stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment has everything you are looking for and more. Being situated a short stroll away from Notre Dame Cathedral is just one of its great features. Perfectly equipped with everything you will need for a few days to a few weeks. Wonderfully decorated with style and situated in a quiet complex. The view from the living room is of a stunning little courtyard garden. We spent a Saturday to Thursday in the apartment and never heard any loud noises. Bed was very comfortable and all furnishings were well kept. Kitchen was perfect and well stocked and Wi-Fi was very fast. Proximity to restaurants, bakeries, cafés, tourist attractions and metro stops, nothing is lacking in the location. At the end of each day, this was our oasis of peace in the bustle of Paris. Will stay again when we return to Paris.

Fantastic location and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Jean Pierre was very gracious to have the cleaning done early and allow us access early in the day to drop our bags after our very early arrival. There were small things that may have been provided if we hadn't rushed to check in early, but they were simple (we purchased additional toilet paper) and we were very happy with the quiet location and black out shades to let us sleep during our vacation. So close to all the action of Notre Dame, very close to grocery and fantastic bakeries, and Chez Gladines around the corner has amazing Basque food! (a recommendation from the owner)

A jewel near Notre-Dame

  • 5 of 5

This small apartment in the heart of Paris is perfectly situated.

It is difficult to imagine a better pied-à-terre for a couple.

Highly recommended.

RER B, St Michel Notre-Dame Exit #3 and #6

A charming, quiet and elegant apartment, close to the Seine river and “Notre-Dame de Paris', “l’Île Saint-Louis” and “Saint-Germain des Prés”. This “left bank apartment” is strategically located in the center of Paris.

With its windows overlooking a peaceful inner garden, which is extremely rare in Paris, it offers an elegant, refined, cozy and quiet setting in which to rest after a day of busy activities.

Nearby the most famous monuments and museums of Paris, this is the place to be for the cultural life; with so many restaurants, bistros, terraces and boutiques, the place to be for the Parisian life, and with a quiet and secure environment, the place to stay and rest between two visits ....

It will be perfect for a couple on holidays or long professional stay, but it may as well welcome comfortably 4 persons for a short stay (one week).
