Sorbonne Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)

Charming and centrally located apartment with Rustic Wooden Beams.

This studio is perfectly located in the very center of the Latin Quarter & located around 10 minutes from Notre Dame. The property itself is unique. From the street, an impressive castle like wooden door opens garden like courtyard. The building is made out of stone. It is surrounded with greeneries and artists studios. The stairs leading to the top of the main building are old stone and very wide. The hand rail itself is a piece of art.

While the area is very animated, the immediate surroundings of the building are very calm and quiet. The location is perfect for shopping, sightseeing, food or entertainment in the centre of Paris.

Subway Maubert-Mutualité is around 3 min. walking distance.

The apartment is simply decorated and the wooden beams add to the charm and give it a rustic look.

The 24 m² apartment may accommodates 3 guests for a short time or 2 for a longer stay. It is on the 4th floor (French standard) of a nice stone building. The building has an elevator and a very beautiful courtyard.

The apartment is well ventilated and lit thanks to the two large windows. The space is well organized into 2 principal areas, the living room cum bedroom and the kitchen cum dining room.

The apartment offers :

• A lounge area with a comfortable sofa, a television and a stereo system

• A well equipped kitchen with all required for cooking.

• A dining area that comfortably seats 3.

The lounge area gets converted into the bedroom by night. It has an individual single bed and the sofa opens up into a double bed (the sofa is brand new, changed in 2013).

The tiled bathroom offers a bath tub, a closed shower, a sink and a toilet.

The apt location is a perfect base to visit Paris : based in the heart of the old Paris, facing Notre Dame and the trendy Ile saint Louis with, at walking distance, the Marais where are the best clothes shops of Paris. The Sorbonne University, the famous Jardin des Plantes, the Pantheon, the arenes de Lutece, Luxembourg garden and the Cluny Museum of Medieval arts are all steps away. Cross the street and stroll along the banks of the Seine, enjoy a drink on one of the many barges or dance Tango in the “Tino Rossi” square in summer evening time.

It stays 10 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

In case you need assistance we are staying minutes from the apartment.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

Neighborhood :

• The Latin Quarter area and the neighboring Saint Germain area are very lively and full of restaurants, cafés, Jazz clubs, cinemas and trendy shops.

• The Latin Quarter is a very lively area. Walk to “Rue Mouffetard” & “place de la Contrescarpe” to have an outside dinner, stroll in the nearby “Jardin des plantes”, visit Ile Saint Louis, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Pantheon, the Sorbonne university, le “Paradis Latin” Cabaret, the beautiful “Jardin du Luxembourg” and the Saint Germain area. One finds plenty of restaurants, shops, cinemas and many cultural sites to visit.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved the old world charm of this apartment complex. Upon arrival we had no trouble getting in the main entrance with the key pad and we had no trouble locating the keys. The apartment is a good size for 2-3 people. The furnishings were adequate and comfortable. The WiFi worked very well. The bathroom and kitchen are a little tight but typical of a small European apartment. It still had a good bit more space than many of the European hotels I've stayed in and for the price and location you can't beat it. We had no noise issues and in fact rarely ever saw any other tenants coming and going.

The apartment is not 5 minutes walk to Rue Mouffetard where many restaurants, bars, shops, and grocery stores can be found. Its also an easy .3 mile walk to Notre-Dame. The nearest Metro station is .17 miles. We loved the location because we felt that it was pretty much in the middle of everything. We would generally always start our day by walking and of course had to stop by one of several bakeries that were within a 2-3 minute walk of the apartment. Finding breakfast was easy, the baked goods delicious, and the prices very reasonable. The apartment has no laundry but the laundromat is just one block down so no trouble and we only had to do laundry one time. There is also a small market near the metro and want to say that it was up and running either Tuesday or Wednesday or both. For a change we stopped by a couple of shops right at the corner and picked up a baguette, some excellent butter, wine, a couple of small rotisserie chickens and ate in the apartment. It was great!

We got a kick out of the elevator. It was the smallest elevator we'd ever seen and I'm not in the least bit complaining. I'm sure it's not untypical of most older Paris apartments. Just anticipate it taking you a couple of trips up the elevator depending on the amount and size of your luggage. It will fit your thinnest traveler and a couple of bags.

Keep in mind that a taxi to the Gare Du Nord train station should cost no more than 20 Euros from this location and there is an easy train ride from there to Charles De Gaulle Airport. If coming from Gare Du Nord do not jump in just any cab. If a cab driver seeks you out, they are trying to scam you. Use a known company like G7 or Taxi Bleu or at least a well marked cab.

I've been around Europe a lot but have never rented an apartment and I was hesitant but what a great experience! Jean-Noel made it easy.

Great Stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This property was small but unique in a great area of Paris. The flat was just right for my wife and I. We loved being in the Latin Quarter with so many things being within walking distance. A truly beautiful area. The bed in the couch was quite comfortable. The kitchen is tiny but adequate. The view out the window is the top of the Pantheon - amazing! Jean-Noel was great to work with and our deposit was refunded quickly. This is not a luxury apartment but we were very happy with the reasonable cost and we had a great stay in Paris.

Live With the Locals

  • 5 of 5

We rented for 7 nights. Loved the location and this unique apartment building. It was beyond our expectations. The large castle like oak door that opens into a stone path courtyard was our welcome 'home' each time we needed a break from walking all over Paris. The old charm winding stairs up 4 1/2 floors were actually a highlight for us even though we could have taken the small elevator. The host was good communicator with good directions, fast refund of deposit, plus he was just a phone call away if we needed anything. This non-touristy location couldn't be better. The apartment itself overlooks the Pantheon dome. 10 minutes from Seine and Notre Dame. Close to metro, close to Luxembourg Gardens, close to the narrow bustling streets of the Latin Quarter. The Market sets up at least 3 times a week and is just down the street. When we return to Paris, we would choose this apartment in a heartbeat. Added note about sofa bed - extremely easy to pull out and quite comfortable.

Our Stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this apartment. It was great to be in a neighborhood that wasn't touristy and was a short walk to the metro. The apartment allows you to live a more normal life experience. Everything worked great. Directions on how to do everything were impeccable.The view out of the window is of the dome of the pantheon. Incredibly charming. Elevator worked well if you are tired at the end of the day of walking all over Paris. I would highly recommend this apartment. When I come back to Paris, I plan on renting it again. Staff at rental agency were very nice and helpful. Old world ambience of the apartment and the building. Swift return of the deposit.

Latin Quarter Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for 9 nights. The location is excellent! Once you pass through the heavy oak doors you enter a tranquil courtyard and everything feels peaceful, like a sanctuary. The apartment is small and functional, very cozy. The Pantheon is clearly visible through one of the windows. The refund of our damage deposit was swift. Overall we are completely satisfied.

A perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Montagne apartment for 5 rainy days & loved every minute of our time there. Must admit, even with the rain we didn't spend a lot of time at the apartment but it was a nice welcoming place to come back to after a long day of walking around Paris. And lovely to wake up there with the view of the Pantheon & the wooden beams on the ceiling are so nice. Don't worry about the pull out sofa - it is very comfortable. The building is very old & tucked back behind that wooden door & courtyard it's surprisingly quiet.

Neighbourhood? Couldn't ask for better. Minutes to the metro, great market on certain days right by the metro station. Walking distance to many of the sights. Steps to really nice restaurants, bistros, coffee shops. I could go on forever but I think you get the idea!

Deposit was refunded in less than 48 hours & always good communication. Can't wait to go back!
