About The Owner

Since more than 10 years we take care of our guests. They come from all over the world, and many of them on a regular basis. Our goal is to make your stay an unforgettable event of your life.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Why The Owner chose Saint Victor

The Latin Quarter is one of the most attractive areas of the French capital. It is located centrally but still keeps its original charme "à la française" and its irresistable Parisian flair.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in a quiet side street with almost no traffic. You enjoy a fabulous view to the green park. There are many shops, restaurants, cafés, bistros and pubs nearby. Start your morning with a stroll on the fresh market on Place Monge, just around the corner. Don't miss the tasty baked "Baguette Tradionnelle" at the popular French bakery in rue Lacepède. Meet friends for a coffee or have a Pastis at one of the busy French Cafés on Place Contrescape. From there take a relaxed walk along the historical Rue Mouffetard up to the famously beautiful "Panthéon". Visit the picturesque "Jardin des Plantes" and take a tea with a selection of Arab biscuits in the Mosque nearby. Dinner on the roof terrace of the Museum for Arabic Arts & Culture. From there you enjoy a magnificently enjoyable view on Paris by night: Notre Dame, Sacré Coeur, Eiffel Tower, the church Saint Sulpice... Visit the vibrant variété night show at the famous "Paradis Latin". Explore "La nuit à Paris" for lovers and life artists !

wonderful location and cute apartment

  • 2 of 5

We loved this location. It is on a quiet street near the Contrescarpe which has so many restaurants to visit. Our main objection is dealing with the "owner". Firstly, we sent him our arrival time twice, and the person greeting us was misinformed and had to wait many hours for our 7PM arrival. Fortunately, we had her contact information and had texted her earlier in the day. It was still too late as she had already left home. When we arrived, weary from travel, we had to read and sign 7 pages of itemized inventory all printed in tiny font. Were we expected to check for chips on plates and count the cutlery? There was no information about WiFi, nor the necessity of using a fob to get back through the 2 entrance doors. Fortunately, we met some helpful residents who showed us what to do! The crowning blow was excessive fees for cleaning! This information was buried in a 2 page contract which we did not read carefully enough. Normally, HomeAway states any cleaning fees in the "details" of the total cost. This was not shown. When our very large security deposit was being returned, we were informed that this very large cleaning fee was being deducted. This was for 400 square foot apartment which we left immaculate! (beware of white slipcovers on couch and dining chairs). Of course, it was a good lesson for us, but the owner's response to our questioning was arrogant and uncalled for. We are seasoned travellers and have rented apartments in Paris and elsewhere around the world for many years and have never encountered such an unpleasant experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this helpful feedback, Edward. Perhaps it is worth mentioning, that several of our emails have been left unanswered, hence the loop holes we experienced. And some of your replies left us with a puzzled impression... ((-: Edward, perhaps you remember, that the Wifi details are indicated on the check-in sheets ? You have been advised of this as well as of how to access the building. We know that moving in can sometimes be an overwhelming experience... (-; Btw: it is general accepted practice in France to sign a list of inventoried items. In the interest of all this is to ensure a common understanding of the state and whereabouts of the latter. The cleaning fee covers for thorough cleaning of the entire apartment. It is carried out by a team of trained cleaners. The fee is actually subsidized, therefore rather low, when you consider the extend of the service (cleaning, disinfection, washing, drying, ironing etc. incl. covers for sofa, pillows, chairs, bed mattress, curtains etc.). Our customers usually do appreciate this service as it allows them to have a smooth and convenient trip & stay experience. We do understand, Edward, that travelling at your age can be an exhausting undertaking. Yet we are happy to understand, that -in spite of the perception outlined- you enjoyed life in our apartment in the famous Latin Quarter in Paris.

Lovely quiet apartment in nice building and neighbourhood.

  • 4 of 5

Small but perfectly formed! Everything you need in a one bedroom apartment, roomy bedroom, kitchen and bathroom with a small sitting room in between. Meticulously clean, comfortable and welcoming. Owner couldn't have been more helpful with any queries as was Wen who met us there and showed us round. Lovely foodie neighbourhood, very residential and untouristy with a Metro right outside the door. I will book it again.

Merveilleux!!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful apartment in the Latin Quarter was amazing! Immaculate, first class decor, thoughtful ammeneties (a bottle of wine presented to us), and in a quiet neighborhood right across from a park. Located on the ground floor of a beautiful, well-maintained building. We will stay here again next year!

Comfortable, pleasant, well equiped, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend a stay in the apartment. It is comfortable (though one more chair in the living room would be a great addition), well equiped, nicely decorated and well furnished. Appliances are modern. View of the park lovely. Located centrally in a real neighborly neighborhood. Bed is comfortable, heating available you get cold, plenty of hot water....an all around good deal. We were sorry we had to leave.

Perfect Gem of an appartment in an outstanding location

  • 4 of 5

Location,Location !!! The apartment is in the 5th, and a short walk to the Seine, Rue Mouffetard, Jardin des Plantes, Boulevard Saint-Germain, two metro lines, two grocery stores, and endless possibilities of restaurants, bakeries, and specialty shops to fulfill every culinary dream. Yet the apartment is on a quiet street across from a very green park where children play . The apartment itself is very well appointed and seems larger than depicted in the photographs. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances, though we hardly made use of them. The living area is comfortable and it's great fun looking out the window and watching the children in the park. The bedroom becomes a perfect sanctuary at night by closing the door to the living area and latching the outside shutters.

But now we come to the lack of a fifth star...the bed and pillows ! As some others have mentioned, the bed was, for us, rock-hard, unyielding. Extremely difficult to sleep in, until we located a second duvet, folded that in half, and used it to somewhat cushion the upper halves of our bodies. That somewhat alleviated the sleeping issue, but I really think that a foam or other cushioning mattress top would be a much appreciated addition and rate that additional star. And as hard as that bed was, the pillows were the exact opposite, totally non-supportive. There were three pillows each on each side, which we used,as well as two additional ones we found on the premises to try and elevate our heads. Perhaps we're a bit fussy, but I cannot function without a good nights' sleep.

Other than that, the apartment is spacious,comfortable,very quiet and safe/secure with multiple locked entry doors to access the apartment door...sort of a fortress. During our 11 day stay in mid-March 2017, there was comfortable radiator heat and fast, reliable, and I hope, secure internet/wi-fi. We did not use the TV and entertainment system.

The owner seems absolutely oriented to help and assist in any reasonable way he can to facilitate an enjoyable experience in his Paris apartment. Every time we called, texted, or e-mailed him, there was an almost instant response.

A great location to enjoy all that Paris has to offer.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your helpful feedback. We are happy about the positives. And we seriously pick up on the critical points. Your honest feedback allows us to understand where we have got room to improve. Our goal is to make any stay as comfortable as possible. So, again many thanks for your hints. Much appreciated. PS: we have exchanged against a softer matress ... ((-:
