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 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.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Marc and Mina's apartment. Brilliant location; 5 mins from river and Bvde St Germaine. We walked to Notre Dame, Le Louvre and Musee d'Orsay. And we enjoyed the local cafe and Metro exit 30m from the front door. Apartment was very well appointed and Mina was very helpful.

Quiet, comfortable, great location

  • 4 of 5

Ideal for couple, but note that it is a studio apartment, not a separate bedroom, so would lack privacy for more than two people. Location in quiet street near St Michel and Odeon stations is perfect. Apartment is very warm in summer - hopefully the fan we purchased will be available to others.

Comfortable Apartment/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent in Marc and Mina's apartment. The apartment had everything we needed and Mina was wonderful in explaining what we needed to know including how to get to the market. There were lots of cafes and shops within walking distance as well as Metro/Bus/RER stops.
