About the property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Exquisite and central in Paris ! Nearby the Louvre, Notre Dame, and Saint Germain shopping area.

Located in an ancient stone building close to the Seine river, the studio is right in the art & antique shop district. One can easily acces, the oldest bridge of Paris, the Pont Neuf which leads directly to the ile de la Cité, with Notre Dame Cathedral on the right. Crossing the Seine, one reaches the Louvre museum in a few minutes. The studio is also neighbouring the lively heart of the Saint Germain area and the Latin Quarter.

Transportation is the easiest : it is a couple of minutes from subway Cité or Saint-Michel and 5 mn from subway Odeon or Saint Germain des Prés.

This 24m² studio is perfectly adapted for a couple (or a family of 3) for a short to medium length stay. It sleeps a maximum of 3 guests. It is on the third floor with elevator.

Entering the studio, one notices the magnificent stone wall, the traditional red tiles and the wonderful wooden beams. The living room has a large window with a view out on a quiet private courtyard full of greeneries. It is nicely decorated with paintings and furnished with a working desk, table, chairs, shelves and a top quality convertible sofa that sleeps 2. The table may be lifted up and opened to arrange a dining room where 4 will have dinner at ease.

A mezzanine can be accessed by a custom designed stair running along the stone wall. It is furnished with a double Futon (we limit rent to 3 guests. Ask specifically for 4 guests). .

The designed open kitchen is fully equipped (dish washer, microwave oven…) and is linked to the Living room by an American bar which can be used as dining table.

Bathroom offers shower, washing machine (no drier) sink and toilets.

The unit is next to another studio of 24 m², VRBO listing n° 297929, which may be rented together for friends.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Wonderful cozy apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 12 nights at The Agustin apartment. It was the perfect place to spend the winter holidays. Excellent location, close to major museums, attractions and shops. Also, to the metro (at least 5 metro lines) within half a mile.

The apartment had all the services, kitchen, fridge, microwave even a washer and dishwasher.

Clean and the beds were hotel comfortable, the building itself was quiet, clean and safe.

Management made the process very easy, from the moment of booking to the moment we step foot into the apartment.

I certainly look forward to another stay at this place.

A quaint small apartment on the Seine near Pont Neuf.

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was small but sufficient for myself and my 13 year old son to visit in the summer. Unfortunately it is very hot in the apartment. It was too hot to be able to enjoy the space. There was a ceiling fan which circulated the air but did not cool off the apartment. The one window was left open during the time we were in the apartment but could not be left open at night for noise. The weather did cool off to 18-20 degrees and the temperature in the apartment was warmer than outside. This was better than when it was 30 degrees but still uncomfortably warm in the apartment. I would recommend a room fan especially for sleeping.

Otherwise it was a nice little apartment and the location was excellent for exploring Paris. It is a few blocks to the Metro and trains.

The "mezzanine" area where the bed is located is only about 4 feet high. You cannot stand or even kneel here. It is okay for older children.

Owner's Response: Hi Matthew, Thanks for your review and glad to know you found it to be a nice little apartment set in an excellent location. Heatwaves are very rare and short in Paris. The ceiling fan is definitely a plus and very rare in this city. That said we understand you found the apartment to be too hot. We would gladly have delivered an extra fan on your request. As you can see per the 24 previous five stars reviews, we always try to help our guests as best as we can. Sincerely, Jean

If you're looking for a great location, this apartment is it! Just a short walk to many of the major sights of the city. Although a bit small, it worked fine for three adults for four days in Paris.The apartment was clean and had all the necessary amenities.

So convenient to major sights

  • 5 of 5

Compact apartment with loft. Worked well for myself and adult daughter. Pull out comfortable. Kitchen tiny but all necessities. Very clean. Washer a bonus with heated wall drying rack.

The apartment is on the Seine between the Louvre and Notre Dame. Metro closeby and easy trip thru out city, airport, Verseille etc.

Although small, but normal for Paris

I would stay here again.

Management responsive and very helpful.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Augustins! The location is definitely the biggest plus! Step out the door and feast your eyes on Notre Dame, Pont Neuf, and the Louvres! All easy walking distance. The historic and beautiful sights just roll out, one after the other.

The suite is quiet and warm, towels, sheets, etc are provided but there was nothing for the kitchen. There is a market very near to the suite.

Thanks! We would definitely come again!
