About the Property
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
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. 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.
• 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

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.

Year Purchased: 2007
About: 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.
Why Sorbonne, Paris, France:
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.
