About Grigsby

Fran is an advisor to technology companies and has loved Paris all her life. She writes about her adventures in Paris on her blog.

Grigsby purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Grigsby chose Jardin des Plantes

I liked the fact that the apartment was quiet, and that it retained all its original features - moldings around the ceiling, tall windows, original wood floors, fireplaces. I also like the separate kitchen, and the large closets. Finally, the neighborhood is wonderful - lively and authentic, not touristic.

What makes this apartment unique

I love having morning coffee at the cafe on the corner, browsing on rues Monge and Mouffetard, strolling the Botanical Gardens, shopping in the markets, going to evening concerts in local churches, and enjoying the singing and dancing Sundays at Place St. Médard.

Amazing Apartment in the heart of it all!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this place! PERFECT location directly across the street from a park and within walking distance to restaurants, grocery, historic sites, and charming shops. This place is also close to the train station and easy to find for Uber to pick-ups. The first night we walked to a vegan cafe with amazing food and french style pastries! The next day we walked all around the area and the gardens across the street. I would highly recommend staying in here if you want to submerse yourself into the french culture and feel as though you are vacationing like a local!

Lovely Parisian apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic lovely Parisian experience, this is a great place to stay. It is in a nice neighborhood, within easy walking distance to the Seine (through or around the Botanical Garden), Metro stops, many good restaurants, and other attractions in the area. It is both a good base for getting out to see the grand attractions of Paris, and a good place to just enjoy being in a lovely Parisian neighborhood. The apartment is very comfortable for a couple and also has a pull-out sofa, so it could sleep four. In theory it therefore could accommodate two couples, though I would not suggest that.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly as depicted in the advertisement. The location is very good in a nice neighborhood close to transportation. The owner provides extensive, complete, detailed information prior to your arrival so that no question is left unanswered. There was a construction barrier in front of the entire building that prevented you from seeing the exterior of the building but it did not impact anything about the apartment itself. I would return to this rental and recommend it to others.

Wonderful choices

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place for two folks to stay, especially if you’re going to be in Paris for a week or more – good value; cozy, clean and well-equipped accommodations; great Latin Quarter neighborhood near convenient transportation (Metro) and a thousand other great neighborhoods and cafes and restaurants and bakeries...

The apartment is in an elevator building located directly across the street from the National Museum of Natural History, which is on the grounds of the Jardin des Plantes (a huge, main botanical garden in France). The apartment is on a relatively busy street; but do not fear – it’s located in the back, on the first floor (which is the second floor to Americans), overlooking a well-maintained and quiet courtyard.

Recently remodeled, the apartment is virtually picture-perfect if you like classic Parisian style – wood floors, comfortable couch and chairs by a fireplace (candles only); beautifully embroidered curtains; TV. Kitchen is tiny but includes a small refrigerator and, something I’ve never seen before: a combo stove top/oven/dishwasher. There’s adequate glassware, silverware and dishes for use, but you’ll probably be spending most of your time away from home – there’s so much to do.

PERFECT experience in GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is a gem! Having lived in Paris before, I was excited to check out this apartment in the 5th arrondissement and it far exceeded my expectations. Location is perfect for sightseeing, shopping, etc and has great access to metro. I often found myself walking "home" on the scenic route down the Seine and stopping at the Jardins des Plantes just across the street. I felt very safe in the area. Fran is a great communicator and sent very thorough info of the area and apartment. Home has everything you need and was very clean and comfortable! THANKS Fran!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments. I work to provide a well-equipped apartment backed up with lots of information, and I'm always glad to find out that it's pleasurable. Glad you walked through the Jardin des Plantes (Botanical Garden), it is lovely that it's across the street. Best wishes for future travel!

Car: not necessary

The apartment is in the Fifth arrondissement, in the Latin Quarter, on the Left Bank of the Seine. The Mouffetard/Jardin des Plantes neighborhood has great universities, winding residential streets, creative shopping and lively nightlife. The street and courtyard are quiet, but the neighborhood brims with cafés, restaurants, bakeries, wine and cheese shops, bookstores, boutiques, cinemas, theaters, and two open-air markets.
