This fun and homey apartment is just one block from Place St Michel, romantic meeting spot, geographic and historic center of Paris. Here you are in walking proximity or very short metro rides to most Paris highlights. Notre Dame, St Germain de Pres, Les Jardins du Luxembourg, the Ile Saint Louis, the River Seine, the green bookstalls, a miriad of shops, 6 cinemas very close by. The metro 4 , RER B and C and a taxi stand are all at Place Michel.
This spacious (64 square meter/645 square foot) duplex is a serene place to relax after enjoying dinner in one of the numerous restaurants in the lively neighborhood of the Latin Quarter. Portuguese kitchen tile and seventeenth century doors, wooden beams and 19th century ironwork blend to create a unique and memorable place for your stay. Four of the apartment's windows overlook a quaint and typical Parisian courtyard. There are 3 other windows:one off the back, one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen which open to small covered courtyards. So you only see the roof of the courtyard out of the back windows but it's also why the flat is quiet and also has quite a bit of natural light.
You enter the apartment into the main bedroom on the second floor of the building. The bathroom and shower are on this floor as well. The apartment is a duplex so you go up a small flight of stairs to reach the 2nd bedroom, dining and living room areas and kitchen. Baby furniture and equipment can be provided upon request.

Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 5: I bought my flat because I fell in love with it and all of the wooden beams at first sight!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: 14 Rue Xavier Privas is truly the center of historic Paris. It's also relatively quiet so you get the fun of Paris but still can sleep at night. You turn into our courtyard and you can really have a place to rest between busy visits to all of the nearby museums and cafés. Another highlight of 14 rue Xavier Privas is the old time feel. Once inside the apartment, surrounded by all those beautiful beams you really feel like you are stepping back in time.
