About the property

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

Karine, who has designed for Christian Dior and Galeries Lafayette, is now offering her pied à terre studio for short term rental. Karine travels a great deal and has designed the flat based on « what she would like to find if she were a visiter in Paris ».

It is situated in the heart-of-the-heart of Paris, on a small street facing Notre Dame, next to the Seine, minutes from Saint Michel and Saint-Germain. A perfect location, and very convenient for launching your Parisian adventures.

The studio is cozy, warm and soothing. The colors are soft and muted. The floors are teek throughout. The window looks out onto a private courtyard, and the charming street . The flat reflects harmony, quiet energy and well-being.

Everything has been beautifully planned and thought-out to make maximum use of space. A sleep is located on a mezzanine, up a small ladder, plus there is a sofa/bed on the ground level. The bathroom is independant with a modern enclosed shower. The kitchennette is complete with all new appliances (frigo + microwave + toaster + coffeemaker + kettle), even a washer. The plates and dishes are Karine’s own design, have won the much coveted ‘Prix Découverte » at Maison & Objet, and were featured at Bon Marche and Printemps.

When you arrive in the flat, you will probably find Karine’s personal guide to Paris. Here you will discover spécial boutiques, restaurants, shops….hidden, undiscovered places known only to native Parisians ‘in the know’.

From Karine’s studio, you will be able to enjoy comfortable, relaxing moments and to then just step outside your door and expérience everything that makes Paris Paris.

Studio in the 5th

  • 4 of 5

Very well maintained. But some of the doors and locks and things in flat not as convenient to a tiny or short person. Also, Front window too close to the street....You coud touch someone or be touched if there was an occasion too.....Ground floor too close to cul-de sac street. however, agent very nice and helpful and place newly designed has everything you need. Better for younger person who can utalize the loft which is GREAT. Fantastic neighborhood and convenient to all in the 5th. Too expensive for one person. Thanks, A

Perfect Perfect Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughter and I just returned from a week in Paris where we stayed in this jewel-box of an apartment. It was so incredibly ideal for what we needed/wanted. Literally steps away from the Seine and Notre Dame, we couldn't believe how easy it was to get around the city and to see all of the sights.

Everything is new and updated in the apartment. The shower has plenty of hot water and great water pressure. Even though we never cooked, we did use the microwave to heat up some leftovers and the refrigerator for storing our cheese and macarons.

Ismael, Karine's assistant, was such a great host. He met us at the address (we took the train from the airport to St. Michel station and had an easy walk over to Rue Maitre d'Albert) and got us situated very quickly. He also gave us information about events happening around town. When we left he walked us to our train and even carried our bags. Perfect gentleman!

I've already recommended this place to some friends and would suggest you stay here too. This was so much more affordable than the hotel next door and feels like you actually live in Paris. We can't wait to return.

Great location, well designed studio, helpful agent

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time at this studio. Very clean, all amenities, makes good use of the small space. Ismael was very helpful both at check-in and at departure. Great location! (and thank you for the Kayser boulangerie recommendation!). Ground floor, some noise at night... to be expected in such as popular area.

Our first trip to Paris was amazing. Romain, Karine's assistant, was there upon our arrival and on time for our scheduled checkout as well. The apartment is perfect for two and in such a great location. All of the pictures included are accurate We certainly would recommend it!

Friendly, fully-equipped studio in the heart of the tourist district

  • 5 of 5

Friendly, tiny studio in the heart of the tourist district, close to the Metro and the RER, on a quiet street only 1/2 block away from Notre Dame. Loved that it was fully equiped including: microwave, stove top, small fridge, dishes, clothes drying racks, free wifi, wonderful book of food and spot recommendations arranged by district made by the owner, great shower pressure with hot water, fan, and several sleeping arrangements available - loft bed above accessed by stairs, couch/day bed under that was super comfortable. Conceivably, 4 could stay but it would be very crowded. Two in separate beds fit well - though we did have to juggle my campanion's huge suitcase, massive canvas bag and backpack. (My carryon fit nicely under the desk.)

Owner Karine was wonderful and her son Victor delightful.

Perfect for a visit to Paris.

Great Studio !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (both in our young 30's) spent five (5) nights here over our wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the studio. We actually slept on the very comfortable pullout bed. We did not sleep in the loft, partly because the combination of wine and a latter to get in the loft just didn't cooperate. We had an excellent meal at 'Phil Du Vin', just around the corner and 'Three Make a Pair' 'Trios' just a short few blocks away. The Metro is just down the street and only 2 or 3 blocks away is direct access the the RER. While the studio had all the kitchen furnishings you'd need we did not choose to cook during our stay. I would add; however, I think this studio works best for those 55 and younger. I say that because the pullout is similar to a mattress on the floor. This could make it difficult for some to get up and out of depending on your condition. Beyond that, go for !!! You can't beat the price/location in my opinion. We had a great time and would visit the studio again. Thanks again to Management, who were very easy to work with. Karine - We hope you enjoyed your stay Arizona!
