Paris Arrondissement 6 apartment description

The flat is located in the Sixth District of Paris in an 17th century building on the Seine which has been completely restored. The building was originally a private family mansion. Even today it is maintained in much the same manner by my family and the only two other couples who share the building. This arrangement makes the building very quiet,secure and private. allowing antiques and engraving to line the circular stairway.

My flat is located on the third floor. There are approximately 70 steps with three landings spiraling up from the court yard with antiques and engraving lining the circular stairwell. There is no elevator.

There are 90 square meters of living space featuring two bedrooms, a comfortable bathroom, a large living and dining area and a modern, fully equipped kitchen. All the windows in the flat have a view of St. Chapelle, but just off the living room is a writing desk with a view of the Palais de Justice and St. Chapelle looking out across the Seine.

The flat is sunny and bright with modern and antique furnishing throughout including the original hand made brick floor, original oak ceiling beams and restored linen covered walls. It has been newly decorated throughout with 18th and 19th century prints and modern double paned windows in a style to mimic the original windows and which eliminate the occasional street noise.

The master bedroom has a comfortable 160 cm bed (larger than a queen-size bed), the room is warm and welcoming and except for the wall mounted TV is furnished with period pieces and paintings, all accented by soft lighting.

The 2nd bedroom, has a queen size bed which converts into 2 twin beds and looks down into the courtyard and out over the river.

The bathroom has a teak and glass shower, warm wooden floor, wall mounted toilet and stone sink for easy cleaning and in additional to the mirror above the sink, a full length mirror. The bathroom walls are covered with elegant and striking hand made tiles from the south of France.

The building is located on a very quiet, safe little street which pours a few feet away offering views in one direction of the Louvre and the other Notre Dame. It is a pleasant walk to many famous destinations such as Notre Dame, The Louvre, Centre Pompidou, Quartier Latin, Saint Sulpice Church, Jardin du Luxembourg, Musée d’Orsay, Invalides, Concorde, Madeleine, Grand Palais, Champs Elysées - and of course the walking paths along the Seine River going toward Jardin de Plants and the Natural History Museum and Zoo.

It is in very close proximity to two main subway stations: Saint Michel and Odeon which also provide direct access by rail to Versailles , Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. Numerous bus lines can be found nearly to take you conveniently all over Paris.

You can call all over France and certain other countries for free (except for cell phones [any number starting with 06 in France] and numbers starting with 08 for which there is a charge) from the telephone in the apartment, and there is a WIFI connection if you are traveling with your computer

I want to share my apartment with people who will love and cherish it as much as I do. I live with my family here in this apartment during the year and I rent it during some vacations. So you will really feel at home!

For a confirmed reservation, I require the payment of 50% of the rental fee by wire transfer. I also need the day of arrival 500 Euros as deposit refundable the day of departure.

This is a non smoking apartment and no pets are allowed.

                    I cannot recommend this spot more highly. I almost want to keep it a secret! We enjoyed our stay so very much. Perfect location in Paris- main on main- walking distance to everything, and yet also tucked away and quiet once inside. A peek at Saint-Chapelle, all the essentials for a restful stay as well as loads of storage space to tuck away all your luggage and treasures. We did not find the stairs to be an issue, and we were carrying small children and strollers. It felt like the quintessential Parisian spot, and we won't look anywhere else for our next Paris adventure.

                    We absolutely loved our stay on Rue Seguier! Our "flat" was so Parisian and unlike anything we could have encountered in the US. The 300 year old courtyard was originally for horses, and the big door to the street was designed to admit carriages! You don't see that in Minnesota! There was everything we could need: a gorgeous bathroom, fully outfitted kitchen, period furniture that complemented the cloth wall coverings and art, floor tiles and amazing views. Since I was traveling with my sister, my son and his girlfriend, I appreciated the privacy of the separation of the bedrooms. Having reliable wifi and international phone service was terrific and much better than hotels. The location couldn't be better! We love to walk everywhere. We were between the Latin Quarter (St Michel) and St Germain des Pres. If you could tear yourself away from staring at the river when you exit the flat, we could explore the neighborhood. We would take the short walk up Rue Seguier away from the Seine and a left turn would take us to the excitement of the students, music, shops, international food, jazz clubs, and late night bars. A right turn would take us to a residential area of St Germain des Pres: incredible restaurants, bistros, fruit stands, flower stands, the best bakery in the world, grocer, and anything you could need. We also walked to most of our sights: Arc de Triomphe through Tuilerie Garden, Musee d'Orsay, Louvre, Eiffel Tower, of course across the river to Notre Dame and Sainte--Chappelle We didn't worry about the stairs, it was all about the experience of going back in time and living in the moment. Thanks so much to the delightful owners, Delphine and Olivier.

                    My husband & I recently spent a month in the St Chapelle apartment. The apartment is perfectly located just off the Seine River in the Latin Quarter. It is a very safe neighborhood. There are four locked doors one has to pass for entry to the apartment making you feel completely secure. Regarding the stairs, the steps are very shallow (4 inches at most) making them very easy to climb. We actually viewed them as an asset, offsetting our extra caloric intake. The living room & dining room combination was ample and comfortable. Both bedrooms are spacious with large windows. The beds were comfortable and it was quiet at night. Lots of storage space in the master bedroom; however, an armoire in the guest bedroom would be a plus. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you could possibly need. The washer/dryer is in the kitchen and also a window that provides good lighting and ventilation. The bathroom is modern & spacious, with a fabulous shower, mirrors, good lighting, and plenty of towel racks. The owner, who also lives in the building, was delightful, easy to work with, helpful, and very kind. We would highly recommend the apartment and will definitely stay there again.

                    We stayed in the apartment with our 2 children in April and would happily stay there on every return visit. Nice well-furnished apartment, good bathroom and kitchen, and simply the best location in Paris -- a quiet street with easy access to bakeries, restaurants, Notre Dame, and more. Delphine was a helpful and responsive host.

                    This is a lovely apartment in the best location imaginable. You might not think so walking up to it if you haven't been to Paris. The entrance and street are quite unassuming. But once you get inside (and, yes, have climbed all the steps) you'll find it charming and excellently laid out. Even better, once you get to know the area you'll realize how perfect the location is: one or two blocks from the most central subway stops and and the best patisseries and bistros and open air markets and chocolatiers and creperies. You'll need no taxis nor cars and can walk to along the beautiful Seine to almost everyplace you'd want to visit. We did. The Lourve, The Musee d'Orsay. The Halles. Notre Dame. We even walked back from the Eiffel Tower. And you'll appreciate returning to the unassuming entrance on the quiet little street. And Delphine was so easy and trusting and accommodating about deposits, it almost makes an American step back and pause. So what's with the 1%? Well, first, consider the source. I am the type of person who will switch a hotel room if it's near the elevator or ice machine or will switch restaurant tables if near the bussing station or restroom. I found the apartment extremely quiet for 99% of our stay. But the last two days the owners, who live in the apartment above, returned from a holiday and we could hear their footsteps and some conversations. For the most part this did not bother the rest of my family but I am more sensitive to that kind of thing and it might have detracted from my stay there had they been in residence the entire six days. Not sure it would have concerned the others. Plus -- we'd been spoiled by having the place to ourselves for five days. If this sort of thing doesn't concern you then by all means you'll love this place. By the way, we actually found the steps a great way to relieve our guilt for all the dining out we did and for eating all the wonderful croissants and treats that beckon everywhere. Enjoy!

                    We wish simply to reiterate what all the excellent reviews before us have already said: this is an absolutely lovely flat that will make your stay in Paris a very special one indeed. It is utterly charming, brilliantly located, and appointed meticulously with the greatest of taste and loving care. Thank you, Delphine, for your gracious hospitality, and for extending such kindness when we encountered some real difficulties during our trip. We will never forget it, and recommend the flat 100%!

                    The hot water stopped working the second morning of our stay, and we were told by the owner that it could not be fixed for 2 more days, due to access problems. We were 4 adults and a 2 year old child, so that information was rather distressing to us. The owner suggested some of us go and stay in a hotel, which she would pay for. Not a practical proposition, due to not knowing Paris, and this being the middle of a busy summer weekend. After much persuasion, and being told we "could all just go", the owner arranged for an earlier repair. By the time the water was fixed, we were without hot water for 36 hours, unable to have a hot shower for two mornings. The owner reluctantly agreed to a small refund amounting to half of a days rent. Although we were warned about the steps, they were definitely a challenge, especially when moving heavy suitcases up and down. The attitude of the owner during this time was unsympathetic, and unapologetic. The rest of the stay was uneventful, the apartment comfortable, and very clean.

                    Owner response: Thank you for your review, I am so glad to know you found the apartment clean and comfortable. I do apologise that there was a problem with the hot water in the building during your stay. The fault was fixed after 24 hours. I realised that this was an inconvenience which was why I offered to pay for a hotel nearby for all 5 of you for the night, to have access to hot water, which you did not accept for some reason. So in the end I gave a 50 per cent discount for the time that there was no hot water, which I thought to be a fair settlement. Fortunately these problems are very rare, but I am almost always here to take care of any unexpected problems. I care very much that my guests have an enjoyable stay, as you can see in the over 30 enthusiastic reviews here. I do wish you the best on your future travels, Merci, Delphine

                    My 22 daughter and I spent five days at Delphine's apartment earlier this May. Delphine was waiting for us when we arrived and gave us a very friendly welcome. In a matter of a few minutes she had made us 2 dinner reservations at restaurants that she recommended. Both were fabulous. The apartment is cosy, extremely clean with a renovated bathroom. When the windows are closed it is so quiet. The apartment is located between Saint Michel ( 3 minute walk to the Metro) and Saint Germain des Pres. Great shopping and dining in Saint Germain des Pres We were able to walk to dinner every night with fabulous restaurants all around. We had lunch on 2 days at outdoor cafes on Ave. Saint Germain. I would definitely stay in Delphine's apartment again. Thank you so much Delphine. Mary and Andrea, Saint Johns, FL USA

                    Everything on the listing is correct, but still doesn't convey the cozy perfection of this apartment. From the moment you push open the big green door and step into the courtyard, you will be charmed, and won't even mind the stair climb up to your home away from home. Included are very comfortable beds, wonderful linens, plenty of towels, great shower pressure - and a kitchen that is better equipped than mine at home. The layout is wonderful - with a plus that is hard to find elsewhere in Paris, and that is the bathroom is off the hallway, not through a bedroom. The location is ideal for exploring the city in every direction (just a couple blocks from St Michel and Odeon metro stops), and for staying in the neighborhood for food, drinks, people watching. Delphine is very accommodating with arrival and departure times, and for helpful suggestions. She and her family live in the building but you would never know it for how quiet everything was - no loud footsteps or voices or plumbing noises at all. My family of 4 stayed 10 days and kept wondering if we would choose a different arrondissement next visit, but concluded we would only stay at Rue Seguier - it's a gem.

                    We stayed at Delphine's lovely apartment for a week with our two children (ages 11 and 13.) The apartment could not be better located for both walking and using the Metro, and it was wonderful to return to the very clean, comfortable, safe and well-equipped apartment after long days of exploring Paris. It was an easy walk to so many places we wanted to share with our children, and it was great to have a wide selection of restaurants and cafes so close to the apartment. There are markets, bakeries (for morning croissants) and a pharmacy within a few blocks of the apartment. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos, and the listing description was very accurate...no surprises! Delphine was a pleasure to work with in setting up the rental and communicating during our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to a friend, and have done so already! Merci, Delphine!
