Old world charm in the heart of Paris!
Come and stay in our gorgeous, sunny and quiet 2-bedroom apartment on the top floor of a classic old Paris building, just yards from the fabulous rue Mouffetard street market in Paris’ wonderful 5th arrondissement.
The apartment has all the typical Paris features you could dream of: hardwood floors, molded ceilings, marble fireplaces, full-length windows and small balconies at every window. Because it is at the top, it is incredibly bright and sunny on both sides, with open aspects to the back, a through breeze on hot days, and no neighbors walking about above your head! And yes, there is a lift to whizz you up there.
It has been fully remodeled by a wonderful architect, who preserved all the old features, added some fabulous touches of his own, and installed a level of comfort rarely found in Paris rental properties. The spacious sitting room gets the morning sun, while the kitchen is a joy, with all that you need to produce gourmet meals. The apartment comes fully-equipped: dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, ceiling fans, and power shower. Phone calls to US and most European landlines are free, and there is a PC with broadband internet access (or wi-fi access if you want to bring your own laptop).
There are 2 spacious double bedrooms, each with full-length windows opening onto a small balcony. We have recently added a very comfy armchair-bed in the sitting room so the apartment can now sleep 5 with ease - we had many requests from families with an extra teenager!
The apartment is on a quiet street, but right in the middle of a bustling neighborhood with an abundance of cafés and restaurants, shops and cinemas. We are just a stone’s throw from the rue Mouffetard, a classic Parisian street – narrow and cobble-stoned, it is host to a daily fresh produce market. We are also just minutes from the Pantheon, la Sorbonne, Notre Dame, the Seine, the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Jardin des Plantes.
This is our home too. Until recently it was our full-time family home, and has a lovely warm feel to it – we left it with great reluctance, and return whenever possible. You will be greeted and welcomed by a professional, English speaking hostess who will accommodate your every need while in Paris. Be our guests!

About the owner: Our family lived in this fabulous apartment for 20 years, first as tenants and then as owners. We absolutely love it, and especially the friendly and bustling neighborhood - everything is within minutes of the front door. We left Paris for family reasons, but all our family and friends insisted we hold on to the flat as the 'perfect Paris apartment'!!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Staying in this sunny, comfortable flat will make you feel like a true Parisian - a classic turn-of-the-century apartment, views over the rooftops to the spire of Val de Grace, the best food market in Paris at the foot of the building, and easy access to all the major Paris sights!
