Paris Arrondissement 6 studio description

A breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower – Paris skies - “Atelier” studio overlooking the rooftops of Paris

Everyday the unmistakeable feeling of the aura of Paris greets you with your first look out the window of this 6th floor “atelier” studio. The changing skies and the unique Parisian light that has attracted artists of all ages to the city fascinates the beholder. (Currently there is a rennovation of the 17th Century Hopital Laennec. You also see the cranes in the first photo. For this reason the weekly and monthly rental rates have been reduced since early this year. The cranes, however, do not block our view.)

Recently modernised, the studio has an open kitchen with all equipment required for a your convenience and comfort. The sofa bed and alcove dining area add to the charm. The sofa opens to a comfortable normal size double bed. Via TV, DVDs and internet access you may keep in touch with the rest of the world. An airy skylight enhances the space. Located on the colorful Parisian left bank, you have easy access to the most important historical sights, museums, theaters, cinemas and shopping areas of the city. Whether you prefer to walk, bike, enjoy the view via the three local bus lines that pass in front of the building, or if you want to connect to the outskirts of the city via the metro, the heart of Paris is available within easy reach. Local buses travel regularly to main spots in the city. (Notre Dame, St.Germain de Pres, the Louvre, Les Halles, Centre Pompedieu/ Beaubourg, Hotel de Ville).

At the same time this studio offers you a home away from home to escape busy streets to a peaceful atmosphere. You have the choice to breakfast at home or at a nearbye cafe, lunch at a local restaurant and return from sightseeing or shopping to rest and fix your evening meal. There are excellent restaurants, brasseries and snack bars that offer a variety of meals for all tastes at all price levels nearbye. You may also pick up catered warm meals from the famous Grand Epicerie of the Bon Marche or one of the other nearbye catering services.

A wide range of shopping opportunities are also available nearbye. The elegant and oldest department store, the Bon Marché, is only across the way. The neighborhood is filled with a variety of exclusive boutiques (rue de Sevres, Cherche Midi and rue du Bac as well as the discount best brands in the rue St.Placide).

If you are flying into the city you may also reach the studio via the airport Bus from Orly or Charles de Gaulle/ Roissy Airport to Montparnasse, from there you have a short walk or taxi ride. The studio is equally available via the RER local airport train with one connection at the Metro Cluny to our exit Sevres Babylon. All of the train stations are easily accessible by metro from here.

                I spent February and March of 2014 living in this charming little studio while attending classes in Paris. I loved being there. Everything was as described. The kitchen was adequately supplied and the sofa/bed was very comfortable and extremely easy to convert. The view is spectacular despite the current construction which partially obstructs the Eiffel Tower. The elevator was somewhat unreliable but the owner and manager were responsive to problems when they arose. The studio is a short 10 minute walk to the Luxembourg Gardens, a 15 minute walk to Montparnasse and a 20 minute walk to Odeon. There are two Metro stops very close and the bus stops just outside the door to the building. There is a Carrefour down the block for groceries and a huge Bon Marche across the street. I would definitely recommend this charming studio especially once the elevator is fixed permanently. It couldn't be more warm and welcoming.

                Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                We loved this studio apartment. Extremely comfortable. Location near multiple subway lines. We were able to walk all over from this base. There is a very high end Whole Food-esque market one block away. The apartment has lots of natural light and has a direct view of the Eiffel Tower. Lionel, the manager was very helpful and responsive. The bed is a sleeper and I was worried about its quality, but it was of high quality and comfortable. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.

                Owner response: Thank you dear visitors for your expression of what our studio meant to you: comfort within a real Parisian atmosphere. It is obvious how much these guests appreciated the aura of the city from our view. One returns for a private meal or drink and continues to enjoy the beauties of Paris. The visitors gaze catches clouds floating thru blue and grey skys or sunsets. At dusk, lit monuments shimmer across the rooftops beyond. These guests testify that a sofabed can be as comfortable or more than a normal one. Such conveniences have made their stay more pleasurable. Our small studio enhances our guests opportunity to see Paris in a special light.

                The flat is as described, located conveniently in St. Germain with several metro stops within walking distance. There was construction going on across the street, and if you are a light sleeper, this might be a problem as the workers do start work at 6AM every day - I found out the hard way. Otherwise Lionel, who was looking after the flat on the owner's behalf, is very friendly and helpful.

                The apartment was perfect in both location and amenities. We were walking distance to many landmarks and attractions, as well as metro stations (Vaneau and Sevres Babylon). The sofa bed was very comfortable (queen size) and the kitchen was well equipped for making meals. Our view of the Eiffel Tower was beautiful, especially in the evenings. The construction across the street started early in the morning, sometimes at 6am, but it wasn't bothersome with the windows closed. We actually enjoyed watching the progress while enjoying our morning coffee. The owner has thoughtfully provided several convenient items, including umbrellas, a hairdryer, an alarm clock, and a stereo with many CDs to choose from. Bring your own travel size shampoo/conditioner/soap or purchase from the nearby markets. For those traveling from the US, make sure to bring your converters/adapters if you wish to use your own electronics. The internet connection was fast and reliable. There is also a television but we did not really spend time watching it. The building was quiet--we never heard noise from neighbors. The apartment was clean and cozy. The neighborhood and surrounding area was safe. Definitely a worthwhile stay and we will enjoy coming back and staying here again in the future. Highly recommended.

                My wife and I stayed at #33049 from August 2-16, 2013, and we are very glad that we did. The flat is well positioned in a safe area of Paris, very near the Metro (Vaneau and Sevres Babylon), markets (Bon Marche and Carrefour), bicycle rental, a wonderful street market (Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays), and many wonderful shops, wines stores, and so forth. The flat is cute, romantic, maximizes space, comfortable, and equipped including with all the second nature little things (tissue, towels, soaps, uv protection creams, teas, condiments, utensils of all types, music, books, and so on and so forth) that otherwise can be such a nuisance to have to locate and purchase when you first arrive, often tired, at a new place. We went out of our way to restock things as we were leaving, so others can have the same good feelings we had. Everything worked, and the sofa bed was literally like a good hotel bed. (We are now looking to buy one like it for our house.) 5 friends of ours stayed at a larger, much more expensive flat while we all were in Paris. Their elevator was comically small as was ours and others we saw in Paris. However, they did not have the thoughtful extras we had in abundance, their furniture kept breaking, and we all kept meeting at our flat, which though smaller had a magical intimacy that led to fun times, good food and music, and good conversation and memories. Owner was easy to deal with and her on site representative, Adele, was wonderful, dependable, and available. Overall, it was great, and we are smiling and grateful.

                Owner response: Our most recent guests indicate a true appreciation of Paris in all of its details with the rich experience of seasoned world travelers. They truly enjoyed the atmosphere and conveniences of our little studio as well as its central location. As they point out the sofa bed, that is a genuine bed at night, is equal in quality to the best hotel beds. When comparing our studio with the more expensive places of their fellow visitors to the city they were doubly aware of the advantages of quality for fee. They have found as we do that this small gem rates well with much more expensive locations. Guests, as well as our Parisian friends, love the rare view and warm atmosphere that these visitors have called a “magical intimacy”. It is important to us that our guests as well versed travelers could leave “smiling and grateful.”

                Where else could you get a top floor window view of Paris in a great location which is affordable? It is on the 6th floor(would be called 7th floor in US), and the buildings across the street have fewer floors, making the city view possible over them. It is larger than a hotel room and has all the amenities to make an extended stay comfortable and practical. There are 3 grocery stores within a few minutes. The cranes and construction are a non-issue. The workers don't come early or stay late, they don't work on weekends. Any normal city has many more cranes and construction than this. We never heard them. This was a great place to access the trains and busses to visit Paris attractions and to make day trips out of the city. The apartment is prepared well, shower appears newly remodeled, appliances seem newer, and stocked with everything a traveler needs. It is not like a five star resort hotel, good thing because then it would be crazy expensive. The view is amazing at sunset and nighttime as well, it made for a special visit. The owner and local manager were helpful and easy to work with, no issues with deposit or anything. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your property.

                Owner response: Our most recent guests express a true love and appreciation of the aura of Paris. Our place is perfect for any age romantics, whether newlyweds, singles, or retired, the curious and cultivated. This visitor immediately realizes that a good location in the city is rarely coupled with a spectacular view, across the rooftops, revealing the unique skyline and evening sunsets framing the loved attractions of the Eiffel Tower, les Invalides and beyond. This view is enhanced by the comfort of an elevator, good local facilities, all for a reasonable price in one of the most sought after locations in Paris.

                My wife and I arrived in Paris on our honeymoon and were so pleased to have such a comfortable apartment in the 7th for ten days. Our hope was to have place to serve as home-base while we traveled across the city. It was such a convenient location and just the right size for us. We were across the street from two metro stops (Babylone and Vaneau), Le Bon Marche and the Grande Épicerie, and there were two convenient grocery stores down the block. We had everything we needed - enough kitchen supplies, ample space for a city apartment, table space to spread out our maps and books, and every night, after a long day exploring the city - we slept pretty soundly on the sofa bed. The local manager was EXTREMELY helpful when we had some internet issues, making two trips to the apartment to make sure we were set up alright. He even made some recommendations for cafes, museums, and other activities from a local perspective. We really appreciated his extra help. We loved the view from our window with a view of Tour Eiffel and the golden dome of Les Invalides. The construction across the street at the former Laennec Hospital was a surprise, but I looked at it as a chance to see the "Paris 7 Rive Gauche" project - one of the largest renovation projects in the last 50 years in Paris. I found it as interesting as the rest of the city life. Overall, we loved our stay and have so many memories we still talk about - my wife riding the tiny elevator in her wedding dress, making a homemade dinner then watching the Tour Eiffel's top-hour- light show and how much we felt like we were part of a Parisian neighborhood.

                This was our first stop on a three-week belated honeymoon trip and it was the perfect place to acclimate to the new climate and 10 hour time change. The apt was so cozy, and even the littlest touches like the TSF Jazz station set on the radio, the book shelf of travel information, and nespresso machine created a lovely space for us to rest and relax. We both loved our stay here, and would certainly recommend to others or stay again if we were to return.

                Memories that sum up of our stay - viewing the rooftops of Paris from this 6th floor studio: candle light dinners facing the sparkling Eiffel Tower in the distance, classical music to play in the background and only a few steps away the Metro. This studio is a welcoming, charming and a well designed space that offered us a comfortable stay in the center of Paris. All was possible just a few steps away from the Metro Sevres Babylon. The steady rainfall did not disturb our visit; we thought, what matters ? We can enjoy our evening here. We spent our days below investigating the city and our evenings with a glass of red wine over-viewing the city from the 6th floor. This is not a luxurious suite, but the website photos give completely its atmosphere. This is a place for romantics with a taste for beauty. Beyond that the location of this charming place is phenomenal. Everything one needs (and more) is before the door: foods of all kinds, bakeries, cafes, luxury and bargain fashions, small parks, specialty shops and public transportation. And, by foot you may reach some amazing places within a short distance : Rodin Museum, St. Germaine de Pres, Place de Odeon and St. Sulpice and a bit further the Luxembourg gardens, Blvd. St. Michel and even Notre Dame at the Seine, among others. It is clear that I would definitely choose again to stay at this apartment.

              Year Purchased: 1982

              About the owner: Owner’s Profile I am originally from California and my husband from Germany. We came to Paris as students and absolutely fell in love with the city. Once married we settled together in Germany and raised our children in Berlin. We knew that Paris would become a second home. We both ended up having many professional ties and obligations in Paris. We bought this studio over twenty five years ago. It is the wonderful location and it was indeed the spectacular view that sold it to us. We live in Berlin, but we have always spent much time here both professionally and socially. Our children were able to attend school here and spend many vacations in France. Paris is still one of their favorite spots. They have entered professional life in very different parts of the world and traveling has become common to all of us. Thus, we have less time to take advantage of our studio in Paris. For this reason we have decided to make the studio available to tourists who might cherish Paris as much as we do. We have completely modernised the studio to include all of the equipment required to add to the comfort of a stay while enjoying the city.

              Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 6:
              What do I particularly like about this location in Paris? Paris is a city to walk in. No matter how often one visits one is compelled, at least I am, to walk to almost all destinations.. Paris is not only beautiful and the most important city for tourism in Europe, it has a unique intimacy. This neighborhood is very lively, the small shops amazingly interesting and the shopkeepers attentive. In addition to the architechtural sites, the numerous historical spots, I love the many open air fresh food markets at all times of the year. Especially wonderful in this neighborhood is the weekly Sunday open air market on the nearbye Boulevard Raspail. It is known for its rich assortment of healthy fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and meat and all kinds of condiments. It is the best place to plan your Sunday dinner. The sellers, producers, bakers, grocers, fishmongers, butchers are all welcoming and willing to advise you in how to prepare certain delicacies. Us shoppers are also amusing curiosities.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              For your intellectual / cultural interests you have several French bookstores only a short walk away French readers La Hune (open until midnight) on the Place St. Germain in the neighbhood the famous Café de Flore is known as a favourite for French intellectuals. A bit further along St. Germain toward Odeon you can catch the most recent English language (or German, Italian and of course French) films in the original version at the nearbye cinemas. Parisians also love the cinema. The revivals of the best American, British and other European old timers will be found around the Boulevard. St. Michel and Cluny in the Latin Quarter, another short distance by foot, bus,or metro. Not far away is another destination for a short walk, the beautiful Jardin de Luxembourg Park. Also the walks along the Seine and in the Jardin de Tuilleries set between the Louvre and the Place Concerd. Within easy reach and I find them equally beautiful for passing aimiable time, alone or with others in Paris on a Sunday or holiday. But there is no end to other pleasant tours and cosy corners within and on the outskirts of Paris. Although most Paris visitors bring their own guides you will find some proposals in our studio that we and our guests propose to you. Have fun enjoying being a Parisian for at least a week or more!
