Overview

About the property

Very pretty small charming 45 sq.m apartment in the heart of the Latin Quarter. It can be rented for 4 guests (one double bed and one sofa bed sleeping 2), on the 2nd floor of a typical 17th century building along a calm sunny road in the historic, artistic and literary quarter of Paris. Just 5 minutes on foot from Notre Dame and Saint Germain des Prés, close to the Saint Michel metro and many bus routes. An ideal starting point to discover the exceedingly beautiful cultural and tourist hotspots of the capital city. Numerous cafés, restaurants, cinemas, art galleries and shops nearby.

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed in Mina and Marc's lovely apartment while visiting Paris. We are so comfortable there that we timed our Paris visit around the time the apartment was available. Once again, we felt immediately and happily at home. The apartment is light from four French windows, yet quiet because the street side windows are double-paned. The location is wonderful!

I am normally awake hours before my husband, and was able to make coffee and read or draw in the kitchen without disturbing him. Both the kitchen and bath are across the length of the apartment away from the very comfortable bed, which is in a nook with a wall of closets and drawers.

Unlike last time, this time Marc and Mina were in Paris during our stay, and we were treated warmly and generously--truly wonderful hosts! We very much hope to return before too long.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5

We will absolutely go back! Charming apartment in the best location in Paris! 1/2 block from the Metro, 1 block from the RER, and a five minute walk to Notre Dame. Located on a super quiet street, but just a 1/2 block from 30+ restaurants/bars in ANY direction! We never met Mark, but Mina was super sweet, and bent over backwards to make sure we were happy, and even kept our luggage and called a taxi for us before we headed back to the US. We never did use the kitchen to prepare food, but it was really nice to have. Nice sized shower, and the bed was really comfortable. We slept great! Thanks for making our stay so memorable!

Beautiful apartment with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is as beautiful as the photos. It is ideally located within minutes of total access to Paris. It is quiet, comfortable, and contains everything you could need. Additionally, our hostess, Mina, was thorough in her orientation, and available for any questions. We would definitely choose this location for a longer stay knowing that we would be comfortable.

Perfect Perch in the Latin Quarter

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the week immediately after Labor Day on our first trip to Paris, staying at Mark and Mina's wonderful apartment. Three points about this apartment that make it one you may want to consider as well:

1) Location: You are steps from a major Metro and RER station, very easy walking distance from the Ile de la Cite and the Musee Cluny and dozens of excellent restaurants and the Jardin de Luxembourg. Oh, and the Monoprix (US people, think the French version of a super-Target), where you can lay in all the supplies you might need for breakfast or a picnic-style dinner, including a wide range of wines. If you did want to cook in some nights it would certainly be possible to do so in the efficient kitchen.

2) Charm and amenities: the layout of this flat and all of its conveniences are very well thought out, and the overall effect is both very comfortable and somehow very French.

3) The owners: Mina and Mark live right downstairs. You'll interact with Mina when you arrive, and she'll explain how everything works. Mark is an excellent pianist and his playing will drift through up to you from time to time - mid-day, when we were there. Like a concert in the air! Both Mina and Mark were extremely pleasant and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. All in all - highly recommended.

A single caveat: if you are physically impaired, this may not be your billet, as it does require you to climb the stairs to the "first French floor" (second floor in US terms).

Owner's Response: Good morning Nancy, Thank you so much for your appreciation. It's always a pleasure for us that our guest are happy and enjoy the French way of life... We hope to see you again and get time to share a drink and a "private" concert. Enjoy your time and take care. We wish you all the best for the future. Best regards Marc and Mina

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because of its location and because the owners, Marc and Mina, lived in the building. This is a great second floor apartment in a 300 year old building off a relatively small quiet street. It is just minutes from the St. Michel Square, the Seine and the metro. We walked easily to Notre Dame, the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Musee de l’Orangerie, St Chapelle and the Pantheon. We enjoyed the café on the corner. We liked the hardwood floors, high ceiling, plenty of windows, the espresso machine, the washer and well-equipped kitchen. The only challenge is the 2 floors of spiral stairs when carrying luggage. We were disappointed that Marc and Mina were away during our stay, but Mina did go over everything with us before they left. I would recommend this apartment.
