About The Owner

Zara is PH.D in Neurosciences. She studied in Switzerland, where she did her main research work. She elected this apartment for the peacefulness as well as the lively neighberhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

Why The Owner chose Invalides

I always loved Paris 7 arrondissement. One of my favourite Museum is Orsay. It was thrilling to find this lovely apartment in quite an area and such a area.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is located in one of Paris most prestigious areas. Where you have one Hotel Particulier after the other. There is a unity in the French XVIII century architecture which is quite unique.

Perfect Parisian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the perfect backdrop for introducing our sixteen year old grandchildren to Paris. We were graciously welcomed and very comfortably accommodated in this exquisitely furnished French apartment. The arrondissement was perfect for visiting all of the high points that one must see and convenient to metro and bus stations. We all felt so "at home" and thank Dr. Zara de Saint Hilaire for sharing her beautiful home with all of us.

Glamorous Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Colorful, beautiful apartment in an upscale neighborhood 2 blocks from the Rodin Museum. The ground floor entryway had a curved staircase with red carpet. I kept expecting to see Rock Hudson or Audrey Hepburn glide down the stairs. It was a perfect size for 2 couples traveling together. Zara was a delightful hostess leaving a bottle of wine and coffee for the Nespresso machine. Her assistant, Ferdinando, met us at the apartment and showed us where things are stored and how to use appliances. One of the beds is a sofa bed which was comfortable. Classical music drifted into the bathroom every morning from a neighboring apartment, but overall it was a quiet complex. We would definitely recommend this place and stay again.

Fantastic Apartment in a Fantastic Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Zara's apartment is warm, welcoming and perfect for a family of four with adult children, or two couples. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to cook & serve a beautiful meal, or reheat the many take out foods available on Rue de Sevres. The cabinets are stocked with crystal glassware to heighten the experience of drinking fine wines or good champagne, and our 2 week stay over Christmas was made special because we were able to enjoy some meals in, with quality family time, in her home!

This apartment is close to everything! There are several quaint family-run restaurants on the street that we frequented and enjoyed. It's easy walking distance to Napoleon's Tomb and Les Invalides Army Museé, the Museé Rodin, the Museé d'Orsay, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Louvre, the Place de la Concord, the Tuileries Garden, the shops & restaurants on Boulevard St much more.

We stayed in a beautiful secure building, where even though it was obvious that we were renters, the residents were friendly and cordial to us.

All in all, it was an awesome experience and a trip we plan to repeat in the near future!

Thanks Zara, for such a great time!!

This place is great and I would recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely and perfect for our family of four. It was our first time in Paris as a family and the place was so chic and quaint! The home had two bathrooms which is great to have especially with two daughters! The neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance to Musee D’Orsay and Rodin which weee one of our favorite places to visit.

Classic French apartment furnished with antiques but with modern updated bathrooms and kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

Replete with books, family photos, and framed art work the apartment is charming and clearly owned by someone who has seen the world and led a sophisticated life. Everything clean and orderly and the owner’s assistant was always helpful should questions arise. There were no surprises. The location was close to everything in the 7th.
