This luxurious apartment, restored and designed by Toulouse Interiors, is a real dream – 1600 square feet elegantly combining the best of Old World Paris with modern luxuries and amenities, located on the 2nd floor (US floor) on a Haussmann, 19th Century Building with elevator. Staying at Residence Saint-Germain is the beginning of a unique Paris experience you will never forget.

The 2011, no-expense-spared restoration preserved the original hardwood floors, multiple original fireplaces, antique Baccarat Chandeliers and spectacular ceiling molding. The bathrooms and kitchen epitomize the height of today’s luxuries and amenities, including air conditioning. The décor throughout the apartment includes many original 19th century French antiques and artwork, handpicked by the owners, who are world-renowned antique dealers based in Los Angeles and Paris. Imagine living in a restored 19th century French apartment appointed by art and furnishings which are original to the same period.

One would have trouble finding a more desirable Parisian address than that of Residence Saint-Germain. This important property is located less than half a block to the Saint-Germain-des-Pres Abbey, as well as the famous literary café’s and eateries: Café de Flore, Les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp. In their heyday, patrons included the likes of Ernest Hemmingway, Jean Paul Sartre and Pablo Picasso.

Conveniences close to the apartment include a Monoprix (French supermarket) across the street and the Saint-Germain-des-Pres Metro and Bus stops around the corner, which connect you with the rest of the Left Bank as well as greater Paris.

Terrific apartment in a terrific location

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a week with our son, daughter-in-law and their two daughters, ages 14 and 16. We all loved it. Paris was terribly hot during most of our stay--90+ F--but the ACs worked well, and the apartment was comfortable. The location can't be beat--walk to the Louvre, Place Vendome, Notre Dame and the Orsay, as well as the Invalides, the Eiffel Tower and the Luxembourg Gardens and Pantheon. The local restaurants were good, and Brasserie Lipp is a two-minute walk.

The arrival and departure process was smooth, facilitated by Linda, the pleasant and capable resident manager. We would return in an instant!

Very nice, and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location. We are a family of four and both of our kids had their own room, apartment was clean and well furnished. Air conditioned as well which was welcome as the temperature was in the upper 90s. Easy walk to Luxembourg Palace as well as the many restaurants and shops in St Germain. Monoprix across the street which was nice for grabbing food for picnics and breakfast when we didn't want to go out to eat. Metro does run underground by apartment. While it did not bother me, you will hear it rumbling on occasion.

Location, location, location...

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and my son had a wonderful stay here. The location was perfect; walking distance to many fine restaurants, museums, and luxury stores. A monoprix across the street was very convenient. I felt very safe in this area, especially since we arrived during their election. The accommodations were excellent.

WOW! Location, comfort & fully stocked! Felt like home, but better!

  • 5 of 5

I don't write reviews much but this place is worth it! The owner, Aurora, was so helpful and prompt to respond to our messages. The apartment was in the most ideal location in Saint Germain with a Monoprix (grocery store) right across the street, shopping right below, and no loud bars at night so we could sleep! You would think that staying in an apartment in Paris that things would be tiny and crammed but this was pure luxury. Very spacious and fully stocked with everything from a washer/dryer, full kitchen with dish washer, a master bath the size of a bedroom, and a living room that comfortably accommodates everyone. They decorated with real antiques, beautiful furnishings, and all original flooring and ceiling details! Just stunning. Loved every bit of it, and Linda and Aurora made our stay very comfortable. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Paris now that we found this gem! Highly recommended!

Hard to imagine a better Paris experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time at Aurora's apartment in Saint Germain neighborhood. Our regular hotel was booked for this trip, so we ended up booking with Aurora instead. Next time, her apartment will be our first choice. It is as advertised, spacious and well-equipped, and beautifully furnished with French art and antiques collected by the owner. The location is spectacular. It is located in the center of the action of St Germain -- close to many cafes, markets, Metro, etc. Also a short walk to many tourist sights. Thankfully, it was also quiet for sleeping. We were greeted right on time and got a lot of helpful info from Linda. Thank you Aurora and Linda for being such gracious hosts and making our Paris trip one our family will never forget.

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

Linda & Aurora gave us excellent advice regarding transportation to and from the airport . The apartment was exceptional with the Parisian sensibilities of beauty and light and air. Additionally, we were greeted upon arrival with a tour of the home and all the information we needed for a smooth stay. The neighborhood was perfect for our stay. We were able to meet up with friends and enjoy the Luxemborg gardens which is a short walk away. The location could not be better to walk around and the home was beautiful and met all of our needs.
