This elegantly appointed apartment in a recently completely renovated 19th C building on rue des Beaux Arts is on the 5th floor with elevator access. It is the epitome of Parisian charm. The neighborhood is sophisticated with beautiful shops and divine restaurants and delightful bistros. Just across the street is L'Hotel, the most charming and expensive hotel on the Left Bank with a restaurant to match it's reputation. The famous École des Beaux Arts is at the end of this short street. Boulevard St Germain is three blocks east where you can watch the Parisiens pass by while sitting and sipping at Deux Magot. Everything you need for a very comfortable stay is in the apartment, including a weekly housekeeper and an on call manager who is fluent in French, English and German.

The master bedroom is quite large and has a sitting area and a desk area that faces the fireplace and TV. The master bath is complete with both a tub and enclosed shower the toilet and washer/dryer area can be closed off by a sliding door. A small dressing area with a closet is between the bathroom and the bedroom. The guest/sitting room has a TV in the closet and also opens to the narrow balcony that goes the entire width of the apartment. The guest bath has a fully enclosed shower. All bedding is provided for my guests. The dining room has French doors and a view of the Louvre, across the Seine, can be seen from there. The table seats 6. The kitchen has a super fast electric glass top stove and an oven below. The kitchen is completely stocked for cooking as it is one of my favorite things to do in Paris. The half French windows in the kitchen overlook 19th century chimney pots and the golden dome of the Institut Francais. The kitchen can be closed off with a half glass sliding door.

No students are allowed and children who are attentive to their surroundings may be permitted. The weekly rental is 2450 Euros with a 50% deposit required to make a firm reservation. The remaining 50% is due 1 month before arrival date. The keys will be delivered by my on call manager and must be returned no later than noon on the day of your departure.

This apartment has been immaculately maintained and my guests are requested to respect its care.

If you require any further photos please email me. This is a special apartment in a beautiful location.

About Dorothy

I spend several months a year in Paris and most of my time in New York. This is a wonderful place for two couples to share a vacation or a couple with a grown child.

Dorothy purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Dorothy chose Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Nothing could be more marvelous than Paris...any time of year. Museums, art, galleries, antiquing, food shopping at outdoor markets, walking along the Seine, cafés, grand parks.

What makes this apartment unique

My location is perfect for getting to any area in Paris as it is so centrally located. This neighborhood is filled with some of the finest galleries in Paris.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just want to drop you a note to tell you that we are really enjoying your lovely apartment. My daughter keeps chuckling over things like the lawn ball and boules ball on the table because I have exactly the same thing on the table in my family room in Chicago. Her next comment was, "Did you pick the chandelier too?". In other words, it feels like home in the best way. Your bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on in France. So, many thanks for sharing your home with strangers, it's a real gem!

A fantastic apartment in a beautiful neighborhood with art galleries, shopping, and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice, and our second visit was better than we remembered. We were greeted at the door by Sabine who welcomed us and assisted us greatly; we were very pleased at how immaculate Barbara kept the apartment. Groceries, bakery, and restaurants are within five minutes, and bus and metro are easily accessible. Easy walks to the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, and Notre Dame. Everything works in the apartment which has a fully functioning kitchen. Apartment has a convenient elevator, and its heat/air conditioning system works fine. We especially enjoyed having two bathrooms, one of which had a modern shower. Overall, the best apartment we have discovered in our many trips to Paris.

Great Property!! Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

After searching and searching for the right place to stay for our 10th wedding anniversary trip, I found Dorothy's property. This property is fabulous! It's much bigger than the pictures show, is in a great location, and very clean! We were able to walk to many different areas; we even walked from the Eiffel Tower (a bit of a walk, but still do-able). The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable, and my husband has a lower back issue, so is picky about mattresses. My 6'1" son stayed in the 2nd bedroom on the murphy sofa bed and after putting the additional comforter down and laying on that, he was very comfortable as well, again not easy for a sofa bed. Sabine, the property manager, is great and very nice! She constantly stayed in touch with us and made sure we had what we needed. Dorothy even has a little book with suggestions of places to eat around Paris and we used that to eat at a couple restaurants. It's these little touches that added to our experience. If we come back to Paris and I hope we do, I would definitley stay here again. Thank you for the great experience, Dorothy.

Beautiful apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is just gorgeous! The furniture and artwork, the balconies and view of the Eiffel Tower - everything was perfect. The master bedroom and bathroom is quite large and luxurious. The guest bedroom is much smaller but the bed in the pullout couch was very comfortable and the shower in that bathroom was nice and big. Sabine was a wonderful apartment manager making sure everything was just right. Location was great - walking distance to the Seine, Louvre, Luxembourg Gardens, Notre Dame. Nice quiet street but with lots of cafes and restaurants a minute or two away.

I have recommended this property to my friends already and will save the information to stay next time we travel to Paris. It couldn't have been a better pick. The view, the information provided, the welcoming was all perfect!

Outstanding Parisian apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! The apartment was nothing short of spectacular. Everything is top notch and wonderful. From the prearrival communication, to meeting the day of arrival to our departure, it was perfect. Speaking of perfect, you couldn't ask for a better location. You can walk to 95% of everything in Paris. We will definitely be returning.
