Paris Arrondissement 5 apartment description

My apartment in Paris is special.
That`s because despite being close to the Seine on the Left Bank, it is quiet, airy and has a far reaching view across gardens and treetops. While waiting for your coffee to brew you can gaze out at the spires of Notre Dame and farther off across the river, Sacre Coeur, up on the hill of Monmartre.
The apartment is on the top floor of a 4 floor walk up (it`s a typical old Latin Quarter building) but as soon as you walk through the door you are in your own Paris world. No feet pounding over your head at midnight! And as the building is situated in a courtyard one barely hears the sound of traffic either.
But once outside on the street you will find that you are in the beating heart of old Paris. It is an easy stroll to so many landmarks - Notre Dame, the Pantheon, Jardin des Plantes - a wonderful, unsung place to hang out in Paris by the way, and the Evolution Museum in the jardin is really beautiful - so calm compared to the more famous art museums with hordes of tourists.
Rue Moufftard, the oldest street market in France is also close by. Hemingway, Joyce, George Orwell - they all lived around here.
When you want to zip around Paris, you will find a metro at either end of the little cobblestone street that will get you anywhere you need to go very quickly.
And don`t overlook the great local buses. There are several bus stops nearby and, for example, you can can go directly to the foot of the Eiffel Tower , while driving through the narrow streets of the Left Bank, window shopping! Another unsung feature of Paris. You do not need to pay for expensive tours!
There is supermarket across the street , open until 10pm every night (except Sunday). And of course there are bakeries and other lovely food shops jumping out at you everywhere you turn. That`s when you give thanks for the stairs!!
On a practical note, it`s a small apartment, one bedroom but it sleeps 3 comfortably.
The king size bed in the bedroom is actually 2 twin beds if needed, and the sofa in the sitting room is a proper custom made sofa bed. There is a walk in closet.
In the bathroom the shower is attached to the wall above the bathtub. There is also a bidet, for soaking those aching feet.
The kitchen is small but well equipped, and although there is no regular oven, there is a microwave/convection combo oven and a 3 ring gas stove top. Also a dishwasher, a washing machine and a dryer, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, etc.
I have tons of books, including guide books, lots of CDs of all kinds and an apple laptop with wifi connection. Oh, and TV of course, although you will gaze out the window more I`m sure.
Finding a place to rent in Paris can be daunting as there is SO much choice online these days, some of it misleading (putting it politely!) so you do need to be careful. This may be a special trip for you, an anniversary perhaps , and you want to be sure you find somewhere to stay that lives up to your expectations and will enhance your Paris experience so you will have memories for a lifetime.
This is my home and I have set it up accordingly, so it has the comforts and atmosphere of a real home, not a rental unit.
If you think my apartment might be suitable for you, please don`t hesitate to e.mail me with any and all questions and if you would rather talk on the phone, I`ll give you my phone number.
All the best.

              Owner info

              About the owner: Originally from Dublin, I live now in San Francisco and lucked into my apartment in Paris over 11 years ago. I knew when I climbed the 4 flights of stairs, walked through the door and saw the light and the view that this was IT!! So peaceful and airy. It helped that it had just been beautifully renovated by an Italian and her architect, who had maximized the space while keeping the architectural details. But I had to move in to appreciate how brilliantly convenient the location would prove to be, even though I had previously lived in 3 different locations in Paris, including another part of the Latin Quarter - closer to the river but jammed with tourists and fast food joints. The 2 different metro lines and 4 buses within moments of the front door are something for which I give thanks on a daily basis as I go about my daily life without a car. My friend Marie-Noel, who manages the apartment and greets guests, was born and raised on the Left Bank (she lives just down the road) and she gives real insider advice on the neighborhood. We both want our visitors to have the best possible time, and they do seem to, judging by all the kind and enthusiastic comments we hear and read in the coffee table book. Cheers, and good luck - have a fabulous time in Paris wherever you end up staying. Deirdre
