About Woully

Born in Paris. I'm a real Parisien. Love tourism and travels. I know very well Paris and I will love to assist you for anything you need. I will do all my best to make your Paris stay memorable.

Woully purchased this apartment in 1790

Why Woully chose 6th Arrondissement St Germain des Pres

Family property build by the famous painter François Gérard in the end of the 18th century. In the family for the last 240 years ago. Still in the family till today! I used to leave there for 10 years after my Mum, Grandmother. Saint-Germain, a central district steeped in history. Whether at midday or midnight, the streets of the Saint Germain district are always filled with life. You will love this district where good cheer prevails. Finding an apartment for short-term rental is the perfect way to get the most out of the area. An area that has inspired many artists Many artists have walked the streets of this neighborhood, many singers have sung its praises, and every street here has a million stories to tell. Rue des Canettes, popular with student youth for many centuries, is well known for its little bars and cafés where people drink up before moving on to the latest cellar bars playing jazz music. And although Saint Germain may have lost some of its village feel, many streets and passageways remain, such as Cour du Commerce Saint André, which has been around since 1735 and is home to Le Procope, the oldest café in France. A very strong cultural heritage History is with you every step of the way: as you walk down Rue de l’École de Médecine, you might be interested to know that you are walking on a former Gallo-Roman track. You can also see a large plaque erected in honor of Sarah Bernhardt in the place where a gate to the Couvent des Cordeliers stood, an establishment of which only the dining hall remains. Of the immense Abbaye Saint Germain des Prés, founded by the Merovingian king, Childebert I, only the church and its charming little square remain. This is extremely interesting as it dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries.

What makes this apartment unique

You are in the old town, quartier Latin. Everything you need is around at a walking distance. Coffee shops, famous restaurants, museums, main Paris monuments, shops, library etc. Bus and metro 2 mn from the flat. Direct access to the Paris touristiques places by walk or bike. View on Saint Germain des Près Church, which is the oldest Paris Monument. Famous and luxury shops all around and accessible by walk. Paris is a city where you walk. Take good shoes with you and you will become a Parisian person. Walking distance to the Louvre Museum (5 mn), Orsay Museum (10 mn) Notre Dame (15 mn) and same for la Sorbonne university and Eiffel tower (by bike). I wish to leave there all my life. Really the best Paris area. The property is situated one block off of Boulevard Saint Germain and 100 yards behind restaurants Deux Magots and Cafe de Flore. Stroll down rue Bonaparte towards the Seine, past galleries and the School of Fine Arts where Monet, Matisse, Degas, Delacroix, Renoir and others learned their trade. Enjoy brunch at Ladurée located just across the street. Enjoy the cafes along rue du Buci and the shops along Saint Germain boulevard

We felt like Parisians!

  • 5 of 5

My sister turned 50 so we went to Paris to celebrate. She chose this apartment for its primo location, a bedroom for each of us, and for its

delightful Parisian charm. The apartment is very quiet, we never heard any of our neighbors, the windows close out street sounds well, and for significantly less euros you get a full kitchen and spacious living room. I stayed on the pull out bed and slept very well - the thick down comforter and pillow were oh so comfortable and cozy. I was not expecting this!

We girls were too busy to be home very much, up early and returning late at night, yet all the while we felt safe. We walked everywhere. You can't beat this location! We also knew if we had a question or problem that Gwenael and Leslie would respond immediately. They went out of their way to welcome us, even though we were delayed from the airport a while. Another bonus is that next door is a hotel and the front desk person, Noir, kindly ordered us a taxi for the morning that we headed back home. So at 0600 on a Sunday morning, there was the taxi waiting for us as promised. If you want to be in the heart of Paris with all the best things at your fingertips, STAY HERE. We fell in love with the Latin Quarter just a couple blocks east. Gwenael and Leslie, thank you so much!

A beautiful, heart-healthy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this comfortable, bright, spacious apartment. It is spotlessly clean and well-maintained. We had planned to be a party of three, and there would have been ample space for three of us. We ended up as just two, and the place felt palatial in comparison to other apartments we've rented in Paris.

There is lots of sun all day through the large windows. It faces the street, but is very quiet, even during busy times. We felt quite peaceful there.

The price of all this comfort is the 97-step ascent. We are relatively healthy and active middle-aged people, and we adjusted to the steps just fine (hint: take breaks), but it would be contraindicated for someone with mobility limitations or health issues that limit physical activity. If you can manage the climb, though, you are vastly rewarded by this lovely space.

The owner was a pleasure to work with, and the apartment was just as described to us. We love the neighborhood in which it is located, and we consider ourselves lucky to have found this gem right where we wanted to be.

This is a fabulous apartment in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Gwaenael was a wonderful host. He met us at the beginning and the end of our trip and helped us load and unload the car. He offered us tips for getting around the city, and was available for questions.

The spiral staircase (97 steps) was daunting at first, but once we conquered it, we felt like kings!

The apartment was very clean, bright and comfortable. The washing machine worked well and there was a rack to dry clothes.

Coincidentally, our good friends rented this VERY SAME apartment a few days before us, and loved it too! (But they missed their window to review it, so please consider this a review for two).

We all agreed that the location was ideal, and the double-paned windows blocked out all of the residual street noise.

The only downside was that the air conditioning unit was a little tough to use. It was not built for that particular type of window, and didn't work well for us. Our friends managed a bit better.

We all highly recommend this apartment, and would stay again if given the opportunity.

Comfortable, central and so spacious

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise when Gwenael opened the door and welcomed us in to his apartment. It's exactly as the photos but bigger and brighter! It was one of the most spacious apartment we have stayed in Paris. Gwenael provides everything to make your stay very comfortable. From butter and jam to coffee - Nespresso to filter coffee to shampoo toilet paper as well. The kitchen is very well equiped with a full size oven and a dishwasher! Our bed was so comfortable too. Gwenael was always quick to response to all queries. The location is amazing and so many cafes and restaurants around. Josephine bakery, Lauderee, Monoprix etc etc. We didn't want to leave! But we will be back! Thanks so much Gwenael.

The perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the reservation request through the completion of our stay, Gwenael and Elodie were excellent hosts. The response time was quick and complete. They found my fathers sunglasses and sent them back to us just after we left (thank you Gwenael!). The apartment was absolutely wonderful! It was the perfect location, in the thick of everything in St. Germain des Pres and close to all the sites as well as easy access to the metro (1 1/2 blocks). The beds were comfortable, the apartment was very clean and bright and with the windows closed, the place was very quiet. The black out curtains were fantastic for a good nights rest as well. The kitchen was ideal to cook breakfast or dinner and had all the essentials, including a dishwasher. The washer came in quite handy and allowed us to pack very light for our trip. My father really enjoyed reading his book in the comfortable living room after a day of sightseeing. I only wish we could have stayed longer! The stairs are not an issue if you are in decent shape and the building is so charming, I didn't mind them at all.

We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Paris!
