What makes this apartment unique

This place is in the very heart of St Germain and yet, is very quiet because it faces a nice courtyard. You won't be disturb by any street noise.

It's a sunny and comfortable apartment, in a Brocante Chic style. You'll find everything you need in few steps: grocery store, bakery, open market...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Cecile!

We are just back from our stay in Paris and wish to thank you for the apartment St Germain Buci which really lived up to all of our expectations and which really made our time here unforgettable!!

The location is wonderful! Lively and trendy, full of shops and restaurants. The Rue Mazarine is one of the most charming streets in the area, with a view of the superb Dome of the Institut de France.

At the foot of the building there are two art galleries among many others and with the open air market at rue de Buci, which is literally a one-minute walk away, we were able to do our food shopping, which we later used to cook up some French cuisine in our apartment.

The apartment is very well equipped, spacious and above all absolutely beautiful. We just loved the decoration of the apartment and the pretty bathroom.

The bed is one of the most comfortable that we had ever slept in until now and although St Germain is a real lively area, the fact that the apartment looks onto the courtyard means it is perfectly calm and quiet. It was a real haven of peace after a full day of sightseeing and visiting Paris.

We really hope to come back to Paris as soon as possible and to this apartment in particular!

Perfect cozy Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met our son in Paris for a 3 day stay and we were quite happy with our little Paris getaway. The apartment is completely updated with modern appliances and updated finishes . The bathroom is very spacious and includes a great shower.

We loved the location and could walk out the door and choose among a multitude of amazing restaurants

I highly recommend using Cecile's driver Philippe. He is very engaging and helpful and we are so glad that we booked him in advance of our stay. Thank you so much Cecile for our great getaway!

Wonderful, immaculate apartment.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location for a visit to Paris. So convenient to both the left and right banks. Numerous cafes on every corner for eating choices. Supermarket, bakeries, banking, metro - all within a short walk. The best part was coming back to the apartment for a break and wonderful sleeping at night. Used both the bedroom and pull out sofa, which was extremely comfortable. Building is a very busy (fun) street but apartment is back in the middle of the complex and very quiet at night. Great sleeping. Wonderful large windows to open for a breeze if needed. Used the kitchen and found it very well stocked for a quick meal and also used the washer and dryer, great to have available. The apartment is a walk-up but the steps were not a problem.The owner was great to work with and very responsive to emails and questions. Would certainly rent the apartment again! Location, location, location!!!

Paris, almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We appreciated the owner arranging for transportation to/from the airport, and found the apartment perfectly located within walking distance of so many attractions. The apartment was clean, well laid out and nicely appointed with modern appliances and comfortable furniture. It was nice to have access to a washer and dryer as well. The downside? No elevator, although the drivers were kind enough to take our luggage for us. The apartment looks on to a rather unattractive inner courtyard, and a lot of noise drifts up from a restaurant located in the building. Some work was being done at the building the day we left, and the water was shut off at 9:00 a.m. Good thing we had already showered by then! Having said all that, we found the apartment comfortable, and our hostess was very helpful. Another plus: the apartment had a very good guidebook for the apartment itself, and several guidebooks, maps and restaurant suggestions. Merci, Cecille.

Quiet and comfortable and ideally located. Not useful for self catering.

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is very secluded and mostly quiet although there are neighbours who were occasionally noisy. Our main problem is that the property lists an oven and cooking utensils as included, in addition to a microwave. In fact there is a microwave and no oven. There were absolutely NO cooking utensils. When I asked the owner for some she left 2 wooden spoons and did not respond to my request for more, such as large spoons, salad servers, an egg flip etc.. The bed was uncomfortable until we removed the hospital grade rubber undersheet.

perfect spot in the 6th

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was wonderful for the two of us. Our first trip up with our luggage was daunting, but we quickly got used to the stairs. The apartment is very neat, clean and equipped with everything we could possibly need. We did not cook but enjoyed breakfast there each day. Cecile was extremely helpful, including mailing back my car and house keys which I managed to leave behind. Our friends who were staying at the Arbusson came for cocktails and announced that, based on our experience, for their next trip to Europe they would try a VRBO. We highly recommend the driver Chafik who took the four of us to the airport.

A perfect Paris temporary apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cecile's St. Germain apartment during our stay in Paris. Her instructions for entry were well explained, and it was a straightforward process to go from street to comfy "home" in no time at all. The apartment is well appointed, and very clean. We were able to have our own breakfast in the well equipped kitchen. The bathroom was nicely updated. The portable air conditioner system she uses was extremely welcomed, since our first day the temperature was 90 degrees F. The bedroom and living room windows open on to a courtyard, so that the street noises are a non issue. Having the washer and dryer (it was in a separate room in the hallway) was a real luxury.

The neighborhood was very animated, with perhaps a dozen or more wonderful brasseries or restaurants literally around the corner. We were conveniently located with respect to the Metro stops; there is a small but adequate Carrefour (supermarket chain) around the corner. The Keyser patisserie around the corner was responsible for our weight gain; irresistable choices to peer at through their showcase windows every time you came home from your outing.

A prospective renter should take into consideration that the apartment is on the second (European 2nd) floor. If you have orthopedic issues making climbing stairs with suitcases, or after a long day of sightseeing, difficult, you should seek an apartment with an elevator. This St. Germain older building had none.

Cecile was always responsive to email questions I sent her; she was extremely easy to work with. We were very much pleased with our choice of apartments. I would recommend Cecile's apartment without hesitation.
