Property description

In the lively 5th arrondissement, home to the Sorbonne and Luxembourg Gardens is a wonderful jewel of an apartment that awaits you as your home away from home. A five minute walk brings you to rue Mouffetard, one of the oldest market streets in Paris. Here you will find a wonderful mix of outdoor fresh food stands, food shops and wonderful restaurants.

The apartment is located closest to the Censier/Daubenton metro on line 7 and is within a 10 minute walk from the Port Royal stop on the RER B with direct trains from CDG and Orly Airports (Orly uses a shuttle train to transport passengers to the Antony stop where the RER B is available.)

Nestled on a quiet street, in a quiet interior courtyard, this lovely one bedroom apartment of 42 square meters (450 sq. feet) has all of the conveniences that any traveler could want. One of the first things you notice is how homey and welcoming the owners have made this apartment. That is because, unlike an apartment that has been furnished as a rental unit, the owners of this apartment live here several months a year. They have set it up and furnished it as they would like to live and you as their guests, reap the rewards.

Heated with gas heat, with unlimited hot water, the system’s remote control can be set to give you the perfect temperature for day or night comfort. The thermal insulated double paned windows and door to the garden are designed to help keep the apartment comfortable, no matter what the temperature. Large space saving radiators insure that heat is evenly and efficiently distributed in all rooms, making a visit in colder months as much a pleasure as the warmer months. In fact, with less crowds to deal with, staying here in the late fall and winter is a delightful way to experience a less crowded Paris. And now, in case the summer turns too warm for comfort, we offer a brand new, high-end air conditioner. Quiet and comfortable, this air conditioner allows you to set a comfortable temperature so you are cool inside.

Another wonderful thing about this apartment is its lovely private garden. Hedged all around, the space is a private little oasis in which to enjoy an afternoon drink or a pleasant meal. There is a wooden deck with a resin table which seats four comfortably or a smaller round bistro table for more intimate moments. The French door in the living room leads out to this wonderful added attraction.

A separate bedroom, with a large window looking out on your private garden is sunny and bright. Ample closet space, a comfortable double bed with comfy linens, a flat screen TV with BBC and CNN, a telephone with free calls to 139 countries, including the US, DSL WI-FI internet access, this apartment has it all.

The living room is spacious with a very comfortable double sized sofa bed, a drop leaf table which seats four comfortably, plenty of books to read and guide books to inform, a CD-collection for your listening pleasure, a radio/CD/cassette combination with great sound, an i-Pod speaker dock and a wonderful reading light.

In addition to the sofa, there are two incredibly comfortable Phillipe Starck designed chairs so four people can relax in comfort. The coffee table is on wheels and is very easy to maneuver to allow for the opening of the sofa bed. A dramatic glass and iron display unit contains wonderful pieces of glass and pottery collected by the owners. Everywhere you look is the art work of a home that reflects that someone lives here, not some sterile hotel room,

The recently renovated “American” kitchen has everything one could want to prepare a meal. With all the wonderful markets nearby, we know you’ll be tempted to try your hand at French cooking. But if you don't want to cook there are tons of restaurants nearby and within easy walking distance if the most you want to make is coffee. A breakfast bar and stools allows for easy dining for 2 people.

All brand new appliances welcome you, including an induction stove top, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and a small toaster/oven. Plentiful pots, pans, casseroles, spices and cooking utensils are available as well.

The windowed bathroom has everything you would expect and more. Two separate heaters (one electric near the shower, the other, working off the gas unit which heats the apartment,near the toilet) are available to insure you are toasty warm when you emerge from the recently renovated and enlarged tiled shower. With a choice of two shower heads and unlimited hot water, this is great way to unwind after a long day of touring.

With small hotel rooms in Paris around 200 euros and the strength of the euro compared to the dollar, this apartment is a marvelous value.

We even offer pick up and drop off to both Paris airports for a reasonable additional charge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I are both self employed which has allowed us the freedom to travel as we wish. As long as we have an Internet connection we are good to go. When we are not in Paris, we live in Brooklyn NY in a converted warehouse from 1900. We recently transplanted ourselves from the Upper East Side of Manhattan. My husband has two kids and we have four grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 5:
It's Paris - what more is there to say? We owned the apartment for 6 years before deciding to rent and our apartment is filled with art and things we decided not to remove when we decided to rent. Paris is an amazing city - after 15 years of visits, we never tire of her street life, restaurants and architecture.
