Paris Arrondissement 6 apartment description
St. André des Arts
in the 6th Arrondisement
The rue St. André des Arts is a 13th century street that has a number of fine 'hotels particuliers', which is just one reason why many regular visitors to Paris prefer staying in the Left Bank's historical district.
Situated about midway down the street, this lovely apartment happens to be in the most beautiful building on the rue St. André des Arts. Built in 1740 by the wealthy Baron de la Bussière from the Angoumois region, whose family was very prominent during the reign of Charles the Ninth. In 1794, during the period of French Revolutionary turmoil, Louis Guillaume, Bishop of Orange and Deputy for the Clergy during the Estates General was arrested from this house during the Reign of Terror and was later released after the 9th Thermidor.
The Baron spared no expense in making this edifice into a finely crafted, elegantly proportioned building with some of the finest carved stone detailing found anywhere in Paris. The exquisitely carved stone Bacchus above the cellar door is unrivaled anywhere in the city and is duly protected by France's Historical Monuments Organization. Anyone seeking authentic, age-old Parisian charm would love this flat!
Despite the upscale pedestrian buzz out in the rue St. André des Arts, the apartment itself is located on a calm, quiet inner courtyard. The large arched stone windows contribute significantly to the atmosphere of the flat. The view out the window of the opposite side of the courtyard is splendid and it allows for a fuller appreciation of the quality of the carved stone faces decorating the courtyard façade; yet it is the main façade on the street side that has the most beautiful detailing, clearly reflecting the Baroque Italian influence in what became recognized as the Louis XVth architectural style.
This flat sleeps 4; but it is best suited as a spacious; comfortable abode for a couple or a single person. The kitchen is at one end of the apartment, and the bathroom is at the other end, with the living room and the bedroom being in the middle. The beamed ceilings are another distinctive feature that makes this flat so appealing to visitors. Just half a flight up from the ground floor, the apartment is easily accessible, yet very secure.
Those who favor this historic district on the Left Bank are fully aware as to why it is the most desirable area to stay in:
- Close proximity and within easy walking distance to the Seine, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, and to most of the major sites in the historic centre.
- Narrow medieval streets with buildings that are hundreds of years old.
- Easy access to public transportation and taxi stands.
- A vast selection of restaurants, bars, cafés, and jazz clubs to choose from in the neighborhood.
We had a very grand time at the apartment on rue St. Andre des Arts, we'll be back! ...
The apartment was better than we could have hoped for, we had a ball. It was very nicely renovated and a very good size. We left a couple of books in the travel library and some pesto sauce in the freezer. We picked it up only a couple of days before we left and didn't want to just throw it out. The neighbors were very welcoming in the building and that only added to the pleasure of being there. All of our traveling friends will know about I Love Paris Apartments.

Close to the Action, GREAT restaurants, yet quite and secluded
Close to the Action, GREAT restaurants, yet quite and secluded
My wife I are in Europe for 3 weeks and began our holiday in Paris. This flat is perfect for someone looking to stay in the Latin Quarter with more restaurants than you can count within a 5 minute walk. You are right in the middle of ALL of the activity here on the Left Bank, yet your flat is off the street in a private courtyard. Very efficient with everything you need for your stay. 2 minutes to the River Siene and easy walks to ALL of the landmarks or catch a boat for your tour and easy travel around Paris on the river. We will be staying here when we return.
