About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

This beautiful house in central Paris is located on the Left Bank, a five minute walk from Luxembourg Gardens and within walking distance from le Louvre and Musée d'Orsay. It is very quiet and safe.

The house has its own entrance in a nice, flowered yard and is distributed on four levels (2200 square feet) with a terrace overlooking the roofs. Living room, kitchen, dining room, and one bathroom are on the ground-floor, very large by American standards.

On the first-floor, two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed,the other with two single beds, one toilet and one shower. One adult can comfortably sleep two teens are fine, the single beds are regular beds, but the room is not very large.

On the second-floor, one master bedroom with a king-size bed, one separate toilet and one bathroom.

On the third-floor, another living room with TV and stereo and the terrace.

This contemporary, elegant house is mostly convenient for any visitor in Paris. There are many wonderful restaurants, cafés, and shops around. Open-air markets for any one who likes to cook in the large and very well equipped kitchen. An ideal place to stay for the week.

VRBO bear gazing out his bedroom at the courtyard

VRBO Bear stayed here

Oct 31, 2005

I immediately felt at home in this 4-story house in the Montparnasse area, where cafes and culture abound. After passing through the lovely courtyard and entering the house, I could "bearly" contain myself! The home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and is decorated with chic avant-garde artwork. There is a fully stocked kitchen, a variety of music to play on the stereo, and hundreds of books to choose from, including several Paris travel books in english. My hosts couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. To top it off, the neighborhood was nice, quiet, and safe -- a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city center but still just a short metro ride or walk away. Tres magnifique!!!

Great Location and Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for our visit to Paris in June 2018. The owner is great and very easy to work with and took care of all issues before and after arrival. The apartment is very quiet and in a less busy part of Paris. It is very close to public transportation so very easy to get around. You can also walk to many places like Notre Dame. Our family enjoyed the three bedrooms. We were out doing tourist things all day and really appreciated the quiet for sleeping at night. Our place in London was on a loud busy street. There is no street noise at this apartment. I highly recommend this for a great stay in Paris!

Lovely home & great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at Annette's house in Paris! It was 4 adults and two young children. We had more than enough space so we weren't on top of each other. There were three separate bathrooms and three bedrooms over four floors. The kids loved exploring the funky space and we all enjoyed their extensive book collection. The location cannot be beat. We walked to Luxembourg Gardens almost every day. We were close to many public transportation options; we could get everywhere from Annette's house! Annette was also very responsive, which was a change of pace from some other places we've stayed.

Amazing size, tranquil right in the heart of Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Annette's house - yes, a house in the centre of Paris! Quiet and with lots of room to move for 3 adults and 3 children (two 7-year olds and a 3 year-old), the location is a short walk away from the Luxembourg Gardens, the Metro and shops. Annette was very responsive, and great with communication. Would happily recommend to friends and family.

Lovely, spacious, personal, sophisticated, peaceful home in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two teenagers (14 & 16) and I stayed in this beautiful home for 4 days in mid-July '15. We were blown away by the space (in Paris!!) for all of us and the tastefulness of the very personal design of this home. THIS place is how you decorate with your collections! The space in this home and the fantastic kitchen made it a pleasure to get up and go each morning - no stepping on top of each other for bathroom space; a cinch to throw together a nice breakfast and eat it in a comfortable way - and then a perfect place to come back to after a long day of tromping around in the hustle-bustle of the city. The courtyard kept all street noise at bay, and we could all retreat to our own comfortable spaces for a bit of respite, before going out again in the evening to explore or hit any of the great recommendations Annette thoughtfully provides. I felt happy and inspired in Annette and Luc's special home and would love to go back again some day. I would not return in the summer, however. All of Paris was suffering in the great heat of the week we were there, but in spite of the fans kindly provided, the upper, bedroom floors were terribly hot in the evenings, as despite fantastic windows, there is little to no cross ventilation. This was a problem for us. One more note, as the previous reviewer mentioned, the beautifully maintained old floors can be quite slippery in the requested stocking feet, and all of us slipped and slid a bit. With no handrails on the stairs, this might definitely be a concern for seniors or small kids. With these notes in mind, I would not hesitate to return to this very special home in Fall, Winter or Spring, and have already recommended it very enthusiastically to friends and family.

Bright, quiet and quirky home in great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We booked this house for a family of 6, including a 65-year-old grandmother and 4-year old twins. The house is spacious and well located and a very good deal compared to the price of finding a hotel suite or group of rooms that could sleep 6. The neighborhood is wonderful, full of lively cafes, restaurants, shops etc and easy access to the RER and metro, but the house itself is located in a peaceful courtyard off a quiet side street - best of both worlds. Luxembourg Gardens are a short walk away, and with playgrounds, carousel, toy sailboats etc it's a great location for families with children.

Best aspects of the house include the location, spaciousness and quirky quasi-existentialist art throughout. In addition Annette was very responsive to email inquiries and accommodating to our request to check in early in the morning after an overnight flight from the U.S. A few small annoyances: huge windows in the master bedroom with no window coverings, which in summer makes the room extremely bright and difficult for sleeping (would not be a problem in other seasons with less daylight); relative lack of space to unpack (owners live here when not renting so most drawers and closets are full of their belongings); and less than ideal cleaning in advance of our arrival (half full coffee cup left on railing; perishable food left in refrigerator; ants on floor of master bedroom- none of which are a huge deal but annoying given the compulsory 150 euro cleaning fee). Staircases were fine for our 4-year olds but would be a bit harrowing for young toddlers. These are all minor complaints. Overall the house offers good value for money and a great location, and I would recommend it for families or small groups as a comfortable and spacious hotel alternative.

Artsy house near Luxembourg garden

  • 4 of 5

Cute, quirky, artsy house. I'm glad my kids are a little older because if I'd had younger kids I would have been terrified that they would break something! The house is very artsy and there are hundreds of books and art all around...all eye candy for adults! We happened to be there during a heat wave and there was no air conditioning and since the master was on one of the top floors, we felt we were dying, despite the fan in the room. Good neighborhood, great restaurants and an adorable courtyard setting!
