Property description

Our luxury apartment on the rue Bonaparte is in a district famous for its artists and writers. Manet was born up the street, Henry Miller stayed next door, and Picasso painted Guernica nearby. It is now a prime area for boutiques and antique dealers.

If you turn left, you will reach the Seine in one minute and see the Louvre directly across from you. If you turn right, in half a minute you'll be at the best shop for macaroons and chocolates on the Left Bank. Walk two blocks and you'll see the cafes that the Existentialists made famous and hear jazz musicians playing outside the Church of St. Germain des Pres. The wonderful Buci Market is only three minutes away. Yet the apartment, in a small eighteenth-century building, is remarkably quiet and private.

This spacious (840 square feet or 76-square-meters) property consists of a living room with sleeping alcove (the sofa converts to a double-size bed); a dining room with a table that seats 4-8 and a fully-wired study alcove; a bedroom with king-size bed and large separate dressing area; and a modern kitchen, bathroom, and toilet room. All four main rooms have windows with rooftop views, and there are two fireplaces as well as original moldings and distinctive French woodwork. It is furnished in antiques aside from bedding and comfortable chairs.

The St. Germain Metro stop is a two-minute walk, the Mabillon stop is a minute further, and a bus across the street goes directly to Montmartre via the Louvre, the Opera, and Right Bank shopping districts. Notre Dame is a ten-minute walk.

We welcome tenants who want to rent for a month or longer and are also happy to accommodate singles and couples for a five-day minimum. An American agent who lives in Paris will greet you, help you with your luggage, and answer your questions. Weekly cleaning is available and we can arrange for transportation to and from the airport by our ultra-reliable driver.

This charming property is ideal for up to four people, but not for small children. It is located on the fourth floor, and while the views are great, we regrettably cannot accommodate wheelchairs as there is no elevator.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

Our apartment is in the heart of St-Germain-des-Pres, the best area of the Left Bank in Paris. Boutiques, restaurants, markets, and historic sights are all within minutes of the front door, and the Seine is half a block away. (But the apartment itself is quiet.)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 6:
I wanted a second home in Paris, in the heart of St Germain des Pres. I was lucky enough to find this apartment back in 2000 and rehabbed it over the next few years. I still live there three months a year (I am semi-retired academic) and rent it out the rest of the time.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment itself is very restful. I do a lot of writing there, looking up sometimes to see the pigeons on the neighboring roof and the view of the skyline. Then as soon as I leave the building, I am into the life of Left-Bank Paris. The contrast is exhilarating.
