Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

The spacious (600 square feet) apartment is located in St Germain des Pres on the lovely Rue du Cherche-Midi, steps away from the Bon Marche department store. The building was once a convent and the cobblestone courtyard and terraced walkways have been lovingly preserved.

The apartment is on the first floor (one flight of stairs up) overlooking the peaceful courtyard. It was entirely refurbished in Fall 2005. The large living room features two large windows and very high ceilings with original oak beams. There is a desk, a coffee table, television, and two comfortable couches (both convertible). The decorations are a harmonious mixture of beige and dark wood with plum accents.

There is a designer open kitchen with breakfast bar. The kitchen is also newly redone and is comprehensively equipped with ceramic hob, oven, refrigerator and separate freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, and coffee maker. The breakfast bar comfortably seats four people and is the perfect place to have coffee in the morning and meals throughout the day.

The bedroom has a large window, comfortable queen-sized bed with wooden bed frame and matching side tables and wardrobe. There is also a spacious built-in wardrobe. The bathroom has been completely redone in off white tiles, in January 2017. It has a bathtub and a wall-mounted power shower fixture with a glass shower screen.

It is a perfect location, should you wish to take a French language course at Alliance Francaise, or a cooking course at Patricia Wells cooking School, or the renowned Ferrandi school of cooking.

Favorite Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third consecutive annual stay in the apartment. The renovated bathroom is a nice addition to what was already a very pleasant “home away from home.” The Hansgrohe hand held shower head and faucet are easy to operate and adjustable.

The new bathroom sink and mirror have much improved lighting for makeup and there’s a convenient electrical outlet to the right of the mirror for connecting the hair dryer. The vanity has three deep drawers for conveniently storing toiletries.

We enjoy the convenience of the in-apartment washer and dryer. The fully equiped kitchen continues to be a highlight of this rental and one of the main reasons we continue to return to this apartment. Bonus: the patisserie, literally seconds away, assures fresh pastries for le petit dejeuner and a fresh, warm bagette for le diner!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and for remarking on the new bathroom which was installed this winter; we are happy that you appreciated it, along with the ideal location and peacefulness of the flat. Looking forward to your visit in 2018!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment multiple times and enjoy the amazing neighborhood feeling. It is walkable to many of the main attractions and also very close to several subway lines. If you like to cook the 3 times weekly Raspail market is just down the street. There is a bakery just beside the apartment for delicious baguettes, croissants and a multitude of other pastries. Apartment is clean, well stocked with an open kitchen and large fridge. Very comfortable bed. An excellent choice for a visit to Paris.

Large, Quiet Apartment

  • 5 of 5

First stay in February and we're planning to return in 2016. Amenities: Spacious, convenient to wonderful shopping (e.g., boutiques, bric-a-brac, boulanger. Poste), nearby metro, neighborhood grocery that's stocked with fresh offerings plus the Grand Epicèrie is just down the street located in Bon Marché, washer and dryer within the apt. and a fabulous kitchen with stove/oven, refridge, mictrowave, etc. Eirwen, on site manager, was wonderful in meeting all of our needs on the day we contacted her. Being on the premier étage (one flight walk up) was also a real "find" after renting many 5 - 6th floor walkups! One limitation: la salle de bain avec la toilette - the bathtub/shower, lavatory and toilet occupy the same room and may pose an inconvenience depending on the number of renters.

A beautiful, quiet gem

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect. It's beautiful, fully stocked with washer, dryer, dishwasher, etc. The kitchen is pretty big, with a breakfast-bar-type-thing, which opens onto the living room. Extremely genial and friendly feeling. The ceilings are beautiful old wood beams. Everything is in tip-top shape and the building itself is right out of the 18th century -- when you walk in, a statue of a woman holding aloft a lamp greets you as you enter the cobblestone courtyard. The managers are also friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The neighborhood couldn't be better, and nearly everything you'll want to do is walkable.

Quiet Apartment in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I pretty much echo the review from Tom of North Carolina. Comfortable apartment in a brilliant location with a number of Metro stations within easy walking distance and the famous Poilane boulangerie just down the road and another good one just outside the front door. The reservation experience was good and Eirwen was always there to answer any questions. Local support was also good from Lis who very helpful. The only slight negative was (for me and my bank), the complex method of bank transfer payment to a non French bank in euros, this can surely be improved.

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week's stay in this apartment, and especially the location, only a few minutes walk from the Bon Marche Grand Epicerie, and even closer to many other shops, especially the great patisserie next door, Only a few blocks away is the Raspail street market 3X a week. Every apartment has strong and weak points. The strong points are the location, it was well lighted, everything worked, it was quiet, there was plenty of hot water, and the agent, Solene, was responsive to special requests. The minuses: it's a bit shabbier than in the photos, wi-fi was slow, kitchen utensils are sparse and the pans beat-up (but OK for reheating takeout food), the bed was very hard (but not saggy).
