Sorbonne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Please note that all rates are in EURO!!!!

Residence Jardin Luxembourg is tucked between the lushness of the Luxembourg Gardens and the grandeur of the monumental dome of the Pantheon, and overlooks the bibliotheque of La Sorbonne. The adjacent streets and squares are replete with restaurants and cafés, shops and galleries, museums and theatres, services including several health clubs and swimming pools, fountains and architectural wonders.

The Apartment is airy, bright, elegant, and spacious. On the fourth floor (US) of a venerable 19th-century stone building, this apartment will be all that a part-time resident of Paris could need or want, including a modern elevator and newly redecorated common areas, climate control, state-of-the-art communications, and electronic building security system with intercoms. The finely detailed kitchen and bathroom, large closets, quiet and cloistered bedroom with full southern exposure - streaming with sunlight, and exquisitely comfortable yet impeccably tasteful blend of modern and traditional furnishings and decor, with broad-plank solid oak floors, original artworks, and a wood-burning fireplace with period marble mantle-piece, will appeal to the warmest desires.

Designed to ensure the greatest comfort and ease, the apartment’s practical side seeks to anticipate all needs. Equipped with all-new air-conditioning, highly efficient heating system, sound and temperature insulating windows, in-unit washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave, large-capacity European refrigerator and freezer, oven and gas cook-top, kitchen and bath external air evacuation systems, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen, the apartment is eminently liveable. A full length bath tub and shower in the completely reconfigured and sunlit bathroom is complemented by a full collection of thick, luxurious towels, heated towel rack, and finished stone vanity. The stylish sofa in the living room conceals a truly superior bed with a thick, firm mattress.

High-speed wireless internet will allow guests to roam the apartment with their own laptop computer, or use the home’s dedicated iPad. Cordless phones on a voice-over-internet-protocol system provide seamless and free international and local calling, and will enable guests who so wish to remain available to U.S. callers at a domestic U.S. telephone number that is automatically forwarded to ring in their Paris apartment. Flat screen Samsung televisions with cable and DVD players in each room, and a high quality stereo and digital music docking capability complete the technical environment.

At the end of the day in the finely appointed bedroom, the high quality bed, at 1.6 meters several inches wider than an American queen-sized bed, will have been dressed in high thread-count luxury cotton linens for your arrival.

Other Features:

• Wide-plank oak floors and exposed stone walls

• Double insulated windows for quiet

• Sunlit bath with restored antique vanity

• Combination of antique and modern furnishings

• Illy espresso machine

Most of the City’s riches are within walking distance. Merely steps away are the Luxembourg Gardens, arguably the most beautiful park in the world’s most beautiful city. Created for a Medici queen of France, the meticulously manicured grounds have served as the backdrop for romances both personal and literary for centuries, and its flawlessly maintained palace is home to part of France’s legislature. In addition to the greenery, the Luxembourg Gardens features fabulous fountains, shady sitting areas, walking and running paths, tennis courts, and Paris’ most celebrated children’s playground.

Soaring into the Paris skyline just a few steps in the opposite direction is the Pantheon with its majestic dome, a monument to the great men and women of France. Just beyond the Pantheon begins the famous rue Mouffetard market with its slanting, medieval streets and seemingly endless line of stalls and shops selling every kind of French food and produce. A few minutes walk in another direction takes you through the heart of the Saint Germain district to the Seine, from whose banks one can gaze upon Notre Dame, or stroll across Pont Neuf to visit the Louvre. Yet another path takes you to the Marais district (less than 15-minutes walk), offering some of the City’s most interesting architecture as well as still another world of wonderful shopping, eating, and nightlife. For longer sojourns, numerous subway stations are nearby including Luxembourg station, which provides rapid service to both Charles De Gaulle and Orly airports without changing trains.

About The Owner

This is a fractionally-owned apartment shared by 13 owners who each have 4 weeks per year of use. The apartment is listed on VRBO because sometimes an owner is unable to use all of her time, and wishes to offer it for rent. Since the owners regularly use the property themselves, it is particularly well furnished and equipped, and always spotlessly clean. We have a wonderful manager who is obsessed with perfection.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Paris Arr. 5 (Latin Quarter)

This location offers the best combination of features in Paris. Near great monuments and a beautiful park, it is walking distance from all of Paris' best sights, museums, shopping and restaurants.

Spacious, well-equipped apartment in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the apartment and the neighborhood. The lengthy VRBO description of this apartment gives an accurate picture of the apartment and the neighborhood. In addition you’ll find a detailed handbook offering names of local markets, boulangerie, meat markets, restaurants etc and as well as information on metro stops, taxi stands, and how-to use the appliances. The i-Pad set-up with keyboard and printer was much appreciated and helped us navigate where and when we wanted go.

Lorinda helped us get settled and offered some great suggestions and advice. We took advantage of the local markets and the modern, well-equipped kitchen to prepare several meals. The living area with a little gas fireplace and the bedroom were spacious and very comfortable. The large, warmed towels and deep bathtub were great in the morning or after a long day visiting the city.

Close to the apartment we enjoyed Le Cosi an authentic Corsican restaurant, the Irish pub Wide Open Spaces, and the small family restaurant Bistro du Périgord with specialties from Southwestern France.

Don’t miss the Musee du Luxembourg! This small museum does a great job of organizing exhibits that appeal to all audiences. You can book your ticket online and be sure to get the audioguide.

100% satisfied! Magnifique!!

  • 5 of 5

I looked at a lot of rental properties before lucking upon this magnificent gem. I knew it was the one we wanted from the moment I saw it! This place stood out as being special. Making arrangements over internet and phone with Astrid was easy and she was there on our arrival to welcome us and explain the lay of the land. Simply beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and well-outfitted, we were delighted to make this our home for our 8 day visit in the Fall of 2012. From here, we could easily explore all of Paris, by foot, boat, bus or Metro. At the end of each marvelous, full day, we were delighted to return to Rue Kujas. The kitchen table afforded plenty of room to spread out our maps and guide books for planning each day. (By the way, we left those guide books to add to the library for reference.) The well appointed kitchen contained all we could want, though we opted to go out for most meals because we were in PARIS after all! Endless restaurant options were within walking distance. The bathroom was clean and lovely -- nice to have a bath tub in addition to shower. Heated towel rack for warming towels and drying hand wash quickly. Cozy, quiet bedroom with plenty of room to unpack. We appreciated the overseas phone line so we could call home to Seattle a few times. When we return to Paris, which we sure hope to, we will definately try to stay here again. 'Can't imagine anything better! Merci beaucoup!!

Convenient apartment in the 5th Arrondissement

  • 5 of 5

What a charming apartment that actually lived up to the pictures posted on the web. It had all of the necessities including washer and dryer and a hair dryer. It was very roomy compared to some we had seen. It was so convenient to everything--walking distance to the Louvre, Notre Dame, St. Sulpice and other sights. Plus there were a metro station and an RER station nearby. Astrid was so welcoming and graciously explained everything in the apartment and how to make it all work. Two added bonuses we enjoyed were the computer with Internet access and a telephone with free long distance. Both came in very handy. Definitely a place we would come back to.

Fantastic Apartment in the 5th Arrondissement

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely, well located apartment for 12 nights during our recent visit to Paris. The apartment is exactly as described and the next time we are in this beautiful city we will definitely be staying here again. The property is immaculately clean and has all the creature comforts that we needed and more to make our stay very comfortable. The location is excellent, walking distance to the Pantheon, Notre Dame, Rue Mouffetard and many other great must see sights, restaurants, shops, parks and gardens. Thank you Astrid for making our stay so memorable, we will certainly be recommending the apartment to our friends and family.

Wonderful first-time experience using VRBO

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is a gem! My husband and I stayed 6 nights and could not have been happier. From the warm friendly welcome by Astrid, who explained everything we needed to know about the finer workings of the apartment, to the excellent location within walking distace to everything including metro. A quiet, comfortable bedroom and excellent facilities made our second stay in Paris so much more enjoyable than hotel accommodation. Being our very first experience of obtaining accommodation via VRBO (on a friend's recommendation), we were a little unsure at first. But the photos and description matched our expectations and the service exceeded them. This experience ensures we will use VRBO again and again. We only hope this apartment is available next time we visit Paris!! (perhaps then we shouldn't recommend it to friends.....but no, you just want to tell people of such a lovely place!)

For a great dinner, we definitely recommend "Le Cosi" restaurant which is just around the corner - excellent food.

We wish everyone who is lucky enough to secure accommodation at this apartment, a wonderful visit to Paris.

Beautiful, Spacious, Convenient Apartment

  • 5 of 5

It took watching the end of the Tour de France on TV this morning to remind me that I had yet to submit our review for this fabulous apartment in Paris. In late Jan. 2011, my husband, 24 yr. old daughter and I visited our younger daughter while she was studying in Paris. We had a wonderful 5 days in Paris and this fabulous apartment contributed greatly to our enjoyable stay. The apartment is immaculate and tastefully furnished with high quality furniture and appliances. The location is extremely convenient allowing us to walk to many of our destinations and is convenient to public transportation. We learned quickly that after a long day of sightseeing, rather than going out to dinner, we shopped the local cheese, wine shops and bakeries, and came back to the apartment to enjoy a light dinner in front of the gas fireplace. The beds are very comfortable, including the pull out couch that both daughters shared on several nights. The apartment manager, Astrid, was extremely professional, accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this apartment. When we return to Paris we will definitely stay here again.
