Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This exclusive two-bedroom / two-shower apartment is located in what is by common consensus the very best Paris location of all: the heart of smart St-Germain-des-Prés. The apartment is mere steps from the famed Café Flore and Café Deux Magots institutions, where the Paris intelligencia historically went to sip their coffee. Today the neighborhood is Paris' most sought-after.

The apartment was renovated from floor to ceiling using high-quality materials, fittings and furnishings. An architect and interior designer worked together to bring you a top-drawer result.

The apartment is on the 2nd french floor (third floor US) walk-up (no elevator but short staircase) of a charming restored 18th century building.

The entrance of the apartment opens onto the living room and also distributes the other rooms and separate lavatory. A clever glass-panelled partition in the hallway offers a view of the open kitchen, and a welcome sense of space and brightness.

The living room features two French windows, with ample seating for 4. The floors are finished in magnificent gray-stained hardwood parquet boards. The room is color-coordinated in subtle tones of beiges and grays. The overall feel is one of subdued refinement with a special Parisian cachet. It's a wonderful space to unwind in, with double glazing ensuring peace and quiet.

The contemporary oak kitchen is open on the living room and is fully equipped, including a dish-washer. There is a table and seating for four.

The first bedroom is street-facing (quiet with double-glazing), a queen-sized double bed and generous fitted closets. The room is finished in taupes and contrasting accents of fushia. This bedroom is associated with a stylish marble-clad bathroom.

The second bedroom is courtyard-side, with zenithal light coming in from a large skylight that has a black-out blind. The room is finished in delicate beiges, has a queen-sized bed (that can also be made as two singles) and fitted clothes closet. This bedroom has an ensuite shower area that has been cleverly designed as a luxury boudoir, so it feels almost like small private living room, exclusively for the occupants of the second bedroom.

About Carole

Hi, my name is Carole. I own this apartment with my husband.

We both love Paris and especially the St Germain des Prés area because it has so much to offer (coffee shops, restaurants, great shopping, museums, the Luxembourg gardens)

We would be glad to have you as a guest and we hope you enjoy your stay in Paris.

Warm regards

Carole purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Carole chose Saint Thomas d'Aquin

Located steps from the famous Flore and Deux Magots cafés. The exclusive and sought-after St-Germain location, with its quintessentially Parisian village-like atmosphere, is as central as you’ll find, so you’ll be within easy walking distance of almost of the best Paris sights.

What makes this apartment unique

This beautifully designed two-bedroom / two-bathroom is a very special place to stay. The bedrooms are perfectly quiet and the beds feature thick comfortable mattresses, so you’re sure to sleep well.

Nice little apartment but it needs some work

  • 4 of 5

very good communication with the ownerbefore our stay and the manager was waiting at the front door for us as we arrived to let us in and show us around the apartment. It's a cute little apartment in an excellent area. The kitchen is very nice and has everything you will need . However some work needs to be done on the bathroom that is in the second bedroom it is impossible not to have water all over the floor when you use the shower. The Wi-Fi only worked part of the time as well. The seal on the shower in the main bathroom needs repaired as the door does not fully close and water gets on the floor.

If these modifications were made it will be a perfect little apartment

Owner's Response: Dear Debbie, Thanks for sharing your positive experience with other travellers. In reply to your suggestions: - We have just returned from a week-end in the apartment and did not find any problem with the shower door of the main bathroom ; it seals well and does not leak provided it is firmly closed. Similarly, provided the second shower is closed properly, it does not appear to leak. - Had you contacted us about the uneven Wi-Fi during your 5 night stays, we would have been glad to help. Would probably have been sorted by resetting the Internet box. We didn't encounter any Wi-Fi issue ourselves during our recent stay.

Fabulous 2 bedroom flat in the most amazing place in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights here with our 2 daughters (7 and 9). The flat is perfect for a city visit, nice and clean with 2 good size rooms, plenty of hot water and even a washing machine and dryer. The flat was very well stocked. It’s also in a great position to enjoy the sites of Paris and then return to relax in the lively lounge after a hard day sightseeing! We would definitely stay again.

More than perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have no words to review this stay. I've rented a lot of apartments before and a few after in this same trip and this one was for far, the best!! It was absolutely perfect! First, the location is unbeatable, in a quiet spot in st Germain. The apartment was beautiful, comfortable, big enough. Full kitchen! But what makes this stay perfect, apart from the specifics of the place, was that they thought of every detail. Great beds and linen, lots of linen!! Extra towels everywhere, pillows and covers. This people is not cheap at all! All new appliances, washing & dryer machines, dish washer, toaster, coffee maker. The apartment was also full of everything you will need for the hole stay: lots of toilet paper, soap, washing and dish washer machine's soap, salt, pepper, olive oil, etc etc etc. They even left a welcome bottle of wine prepared with 2 glasses. They offer us transfers from and to the airport, extra cleaning with charge. Two stair that looks like a lot less. Windows facing the street, lots of light. We didn't wanna leave the place!!! Thanks Carole and her assistant for everything!!!

A gem in the heart of Saint Germaine!

  • 5 of 5

A very convenient location! That was why we chose the apartment as well as it having two separate showers, washing machine/dryer, two separate sinks and kitchen. This accommodated our family of 5 perfectly. The apartment is modern and tastefully decorated. We were extremely satisfied with our stay. Carole communicated well with us in advance. Will definitely plan to stay here again! (Note: Natalie, one of Carole's co-workers, was there as we arrived to give us the key and explain facility). So close to everything and cute boutiques!!! You can't go wrong with this!

Great Location and Place - We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly what the pictures reflect. My sister and I spend 5 days there and it could not have been better. Location was great, close to shops, metro and if you like to walk this is the perfect spot. I would highly recommend using their transportation to and from the airport. If we go to Paris again we will stay here for sure. We had a great time Thanks Carole - you were great!
