We are proud to present you through this website our “Notre Dame Paris Flat” charming apartment with stunning views and a 360° terrace to be rented on a daily and a weekly basis

It's located in the heart of old Paris’ 5th district and Quartier Latin, just a few blocks from Notre Dame Cathedral, a 15-minute walk from of all the main museums (like Le Louvre). it is the oldest and nicest living places in Paris, where students, artists and tourists meet.

It’s conveniently accessible from all main Metro and High speed rail lines and Paris’ majors Airports. You cannot find more central and convenient place.

The flat is on the penthouse floor and includes a stunning rooftop deck with incredible views of all ofParis (look at the Gallery, for real it's what you will experience!). It is a suite of 50m2 (more than 500ft2) of surface and the terrace is 30m2 (more than 300ft2) and has a Veranda and many trees, bamboos and plants.

From May to October, you will enjoy on the roof top terrace amazing dinners, or you can a sunbathe in complete privacy in restful manner, or share a cocktail with friends.

The apartment can accommodate 4 people (but up to 6 people) to sleep. It has a King size bed and 2 large sofas.

The only slight drawback, that we actually find to be uniquely charming, is that no elevator exists due to the fact that the building was constructed in the 16th century. With a little forethought, you will be able to minimize the up and down trips !

We can organise whatever you need (tickets for concerts, transfers, taxis, in-home chef, daily cleaning) upon request for a supplemental but at cost fee.

The street where your apartment is located (see situation) is animated day and night as many tourists goes through for Museum and food (but after midnight restaurants close and it’s a very safe and restful place as Police headquarter is a few block away).

Fantastic home base for a week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home with the luxurious bonus of a private terrace boasting views not only of Notre Dame but also the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, and the iconic rooftops of Paris. We loved opening the windows to hear the bells of nearby churches and welcoming each day’s sunrise (to be fair, sunrise was at 8am), and later in the evening watching from a distance the Eiffel Tower’s twinkling lights, listening to music drifting up from the streets below. The proximity to Île de la Cité/Île St Louis, the Quais along the Seine, and Blvd Saint Germain were bonuses, and while the metro was very close to the flat we walked just about everywhere - to the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Panthéon, Luxembourg Gardens, Jardin des Plantes, Musée d’Orsay, Centre George Pompidou, etc. We did take the metro to Montmartre, which made for an easy journey from the St. Michel station, and we took a casual sightseeing boat tour on the Bateaux Parisiens line that boards on the Left Bank near Notre Dame. (Our boat was the Jean Marais and we sat on the top deck, which was a great way to get reacquainted with the city.) It’s true that walking up the many stairs to the apartment can be tiring, but your reward is a truly unique and comfortable home base during your stay. You will not regret booking this apartment, and you’ll find Aurelien a responsive host whose home will welcome you back warmly from your adventures around the city. We hope to be back!

Beautiful and very clean! Great communication as well

  • 5 of 5

This flat is amazing! It is in a great location so my siblings and I were able to walk everywhere! We loved sitting on the terrace at night listening to the music playing on the street below. The view of the Notre Dame is incredible! The flat is very clean and we had a lot of space. Be prepared to carry your luggage up a lot of stairs but after some time, you will get use to it! My siblings and I had a wonderful time here and I am hoping to stay here with my fiancé next year for our honeymoon!

Great location with an outstanding view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed staying 9 nights at the Notre Dame Flat. The location is perfect for seeing the sights in Paris. The metro, velib, bus are all within a block making it very easy to get anywhere. Helpful tip: Use the CityMapper app which allows you to see all ways to get from point A to point B, extremely handy. The Rue de la Harpe is very touristy but we enjoyed it. Opening the windows in the morning to hear the cathedrals bells or listening to live music at night with a glass of wine. The rooftop has a nearly 360 view with partial views of the Sacre Couer and the Eiffel Tower, very nice. The interior of the flat is eclectic and cozy. Nice full sized appliances for Europe. We were thankful for the laundry pods, tea and coffee provided.

We have stayed in a lot of these types of rentals. I prefer to leave a balanced review the good and the bad so that you can adequately decide if its right for you. The obvious downside is the stairs; however, it would not deter us from staying again. The water closet is down about a half a flight of stairs on the level of the entry to the flat which I didn't take note of in any of the previous reviews (wasn't obvious to me). Not optimal in the middle of the night. Although the flat is clean and well taken care, it would be nice to see the pillows on the bed upgraded, upper level sofa could use a cover and the terrace chair cushions need replaced - we sat them to the side as they were very wet and wouldn't dry out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this flat to a friend. Communication with the owner was always quick and easy. They also started cleaning the flat the night before, which allowed us a very early check-in, can't say how thankful were for that.

Picturesque, perfect spot in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at the Notre Dame Penthouse flat! The views of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower, plus the outstanding service from Aurelian make the stairs worth it! And so lovely having a great kitchen with coffee, tea, etc., great washer/dryer with plenty of detergent pods provided, excellent WiFi and easily understandable instructions for everything. The flat is definitely quirky, but we were expecting that. The neighborhood is very touristy, but amazingly you're so high above it all that it wasn't noisy except for a bit on Saturday night. And it's so close to Notre Dame, Sainte Chappelle, and everything else - the perfect launching pad for your Paris adventures! Aurelian was so responsive to every question - we would absolutely stay here again and recommend to all of our friends!
