About the property

This studio of 25 m2, on the 4th floor of a 17th century building located in the heart of historical Paris,

 from where the main monuments are within walking distance.

But has retained its old world charm with exposed beams, it has just been completely renovated with high quality materials, offering modern comfort.

Both completely airtight windows with efficient double glazing and totally opaque due to blackout curtains for a peaceful rest, overlooking a pedestrian square and its splendid Fountain of the Innocents, without any opposite.

The sleeping and resting were favored with a bedding of 1.60m 2 and the choice of two types of pillows, down or synthetic, of different density.

The shower room is fully tiled with a shower 1. 20m x 0. 80m.

All facilities of a top class hotel are available to guests: large closet with mirrors on the doors, fully equipped kitchenette (Nespresso capsule coffee maker, electric kettle, microwave, large fridge, induction hob), flat screen TV 94 cm, unlimited ADSL, WiFi, toiletries and slippers in the SdeDouche without forgetting welcome gift in still water and sparkling water, and chocolates.

Guides and maps of Paris and the metro are available to tenants.

Final cleaning is offered.

There 's no elevator.

There's always a little extra attention with a little souvenir to take home in case of a honeymoon.

Charming, beautiful flat in desirable location

  • 5 of 5

First off, I would like to extend my gratitude to Catherine for being such a gracious host. Before my trip, I had emailed her asking for advice and recommendations concerning our visit to Palace of Versailles, a subject completely separate to the flat, and she had responded very quickly with as much knowledge as she had. Then when I met her in person, she was just as lovely, friendly, and accommodating. She's the epitome of a perfect host, helping carry our luggage up the 4 flight of stairs, giving wonderful eatery suggestions, and providing comprehensive instructions on how everything in the kitchenette worked (she even mapped out the exact train transfers for our trip to Versailles). Overall, the flat was as picturesque as you could imagine. It was a charming, beautiful, clean flat with a fantastic view, and most importantly, a very functional kitchenette that allowed us to cook a delicious dinner during Xmas. We were surrounded by restaurants, bars, grocery shops, and it was walking distance to many top historical landmarks. We really couldn't have stayed at a better place. Thanks, Catherine! We hope to return as soon as we can.

This was an amazing flat in the heart of Paris. My husband and I were there for 4 days and we were close to everything! Very clean and modern. Would love to stay in this same flat on our next trip to Paris. Catherine was a fantastic host!

A beautiful apartment centrally located in Paris.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent four nights in this beautiful apartment. Catherine, our host, was always very quick to respond to all emails and provided excellent customer service. She was very friendly, and reminded me of my mum. The property was exactly like the photos online, beautifully decorated and very, very clean. The apartment had everything a traveler could wish for. There was information on Paris, wine glasses, bottle opener, Nespresso coffee machine and pods, even indigestion tablets! The apartment is on the fifth floor, so it is a bit of a hike to get up the stairs each day, but Catherine and her husband helped us carry our very heavy cases up stairs - it is much easier getting down with even heavier suitcases upon departure! The view out the window was spectacular. We had amazing weather for the time of year we were there, and at night had the windows open, to enjoy the lively atmosphere we could hear below. When the windows were closed, we couldn't hear anything. The location of the apartment was fantastic - a 2 minute walk from Chatelet-Les Halles RER, and a 5 minute walk to Notre Dame. We barely used the Metro, as we could walk to just about everywhere we wanted - including to Arc de Triomph, the Eiffel Tour and the Catacombs (they were a fair distance, but a very enjoyable walk). Each afternoon we enjoyed Happy Hour with a beer below the apartment at the Au Coeur Couronne before heading upstairs to get changed to go back out at night for dinner.

I would certainly recommend this property to anyone travelling to Paris. I would love to stay there again - it was perfect.

Fabulous little apartment in Paris

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad I found Catherine's studio apartment opposite the Fountain des Innocents. It was so comfortable, and it fitted out very well with anything the traveller to this marvelous city requires. Everything works well - bed and pillows (a choice of feather or non-allergic filling), the shower was lovely and hot, and on the one night when it did get cold this week and we put on the heater at night, it warmed the room very quickly.

The view from the window is everything you'd want - out across a historic monument, and over the rooftops of Paris. A great spot to watch people go about their business below - and if you want to block out the sounds of the city, the double windows are perfect.

Thank you, Catherine, for the extra welcoming touches - the bottle of gorgeous white wine, the sparkling and still mineral water bottles, the coffee capsules, cakes, chocolates and jam.

The are five flights of stairs up to the apartment on the 4th floor. It might make you puff a little, but Catherine and her husband helped carry out bags upstairs when we arrived, which we appreciated! Think of the stairs as a great workout because you will eat more than your usual intake of pastries, baquettes and delicious cheese from the local provisioners. I can guarantee that.

The only minor hiccup we had was on the final morning early, when we tried to get a taxi to Gare d'Austeritz - at the Taxi stand was a taxi with no driver. We waited, then got the RER line to Gare de Lyon, and walked across the Charles de Gaulle bridge (I think) to Austerlitz. Much cheaper. (Had to ask how to get out of Gare de Lyon though - the Info man was good.)

I highly recommend Catherine's abode in Paris. It was just what we hoped for in this city of light and history. Gorgeous! From Sheryl and Ross

Perfect Homebase in Paris!!!

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate to book your stay in this newly renovated studio apartment in central Paris!

Our host Catherine promptly answered all questions, met with us at the appointed place/time for the keys then left us on our own to explore the wonderful Paris sights & smells. We really appreciated the maps, wifi, fluffy towels, closet space and treats like coffee, tea, water, chocolates, etc.

The photos are exactly as advertised with views of the public square below that has cafes, restaurants, bakeries, convenience store and of course, shopping! Tho we like walking around Paris to La Seine, Le Lourve, Eiffel Tower - the metro station is 5 mins away & very easy to navigate. We even took the RER to Versailles for an unforgettable day trip. If you have luggage, taxi is readily available outside Novotel Hotel to Eurostar Terminal and the airport (standard flat rate).

As mentioned, the apartment is on the 4th floor so up/down 4 flights of stairs is great daily exercise ;)

We will definitely book our next visit here again as J'aime Paris!!!
