About the property

Studio Apartment with Kitchen and Bathroom, (Sleeps 2)

NON-SMOKING apartment

Nestled in the Latin Quarter, on the 14th century street Rue du Fer a Moulin, who would ever guess there would be a bucolic paradise behind the big doors? Set into a private street accessible only by a coded entrance, it feels like walking into your own secret garden as you enter this charming studio.

Within easy walking distance of the bustling well known market street, Rue Mouffetard, yet bathed in delicious silence, the only thing to disturb your reveries are the birds in morning song.

This is a neighbourhood steeped in history, where you can feel the breath of the Musketeers flow out of Dumas’ pages and at the same time take advantage of all the services on offer: bakeries serving hot croissants and bread fresh from the oven, bistrots frequented by locals, cheese shops, right down to cinemas and theatres.

Only a hop, skip and a jump away are such world famous sites such as Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens, Jardin des Plantes with it’s renowned Natural History Museum. Only next door is the 1920s Paris Mosque and it’s tea-room straight from a Delacroix tableau. Around the corner, you can play petanque in the 1st century Roman amphitheatre – Arenes de Lutece or walk over to the Seine and dance tango at weekends while watching the boats pass up and down.

The studio is self-contained with everything from guides on Paris to wifi, free international phone calls, your own verdant window boxes and a kitchen-dining room.

Ideal for a couple with 1 queen-size bed. It has catered for 3 with a futon supplied extra.

The owner lives downstairs and will be delighted to help you, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Speaks English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German & Japanese.

About Andrew

I started my life as an engineer. I've been lucky enough to work in about 20 countries around the globe. I've lived in Paris for 16 years and now teach at university. In my spare time, the abundance of art in Paris has inspired me to do some of my own, so don't be surprised if you find me sculpting or painting next door where I live.

Andrew purchased this studio in 2003

Why Andrew chose Paris

We have a great little community. We often eat together and socialise together. My neighbours are very international and speak many languages. We always enjoy the exchange with visitors to Paris

What makes this studio unique

A real community of eclectic Parisians, as Paris has always been. Come and join us.

Great location, friendly host!

Within easy access of everything in Paris, great choice of brasseries, bakeries and restaurants on the doorstep. Quiet, secluded alley, and a very comfy bed!

Good but small

  • 4 of 5

If you want a very basic, clean space to crush at night while in Paris-this place is for you. Do not expect anything above the very bare minimum. (Yes toilet paper, no hand soap). The location is great, and it is clean.

Owner's Response: Dear Anna, Thanks for your review. I appreciate your comments. The size of my studio is indicated on the HomeAway/VRBO website and in the photos. I think the price I charge also reflects the size of the studio. If you wish to have bigger, there are many more places available at higher prices. I wonder what you mean by 'bare minimum'. My studio comes fully equipped with everything you need to cook and live. I do not provide hand soap but do provide towels etc. It is not a hotel room but a rented studio. I hope you enjoyed your stay and my apologies if you did not like my studio. Thanks, Andrew

Peaceful and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a lovely quiet, gated community away from the hustle and bustle of Paris but also very close to everything! It was lovely to be amongst the locals and away from the touristy accommodation. The fold out couch was extremely comfortable.

Green Eden is the perfect base for any couple looking to stay in Paris' Latin Quarter. The flat and its environment has an alluring and attractive charm that is welcoming to wake up to and to return to at the end of the day. Andrew, the owner, has maintained the flat impeccably retaining historical features whilst refurbishing others (the new toilet and shower suite has been, from our experience of Paris apartments, the best to date - clean and spacious).

Andrew went beyond expectations with his self produced itinerary which he emailed in PDF format. Although we had a plan of what to do and where to go, we did use the suggested visits and were so glad for them. Although Andrew was not in Paris during our stay, Dina was around to keep us right.

We are hoping to rent the apartment again next year if it is available. We have no reservations in recommending Green Eden as a perfect accommodation that is most suitable for a couple looking for a base in the 5th arrondissement.

Great spot in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a short stay in Paris! The bed was comfortable and the apartment was clean. The neighborhood was quiet and conveniently a short walk to restauarants and the metro. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Dear Alex, Thanks so much for your nice recommendation. Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay & Paris. I hope the rest of your honeymoon trip goes just as well. Did you get the box of chocolates Dina bought for you on my request? Thanks for staying with me. All my very best for your honeymoon. Andrew

Rus in urbe

  • 5 of 5

Andrew's studio is an absolute jewel. Hidden behind a door in the heart of the 5ieme is a long courtyard brimming with plants and about halfway along a staircase that leads to a small but delightful set of rooms which really have everything you need to spend a few days enjoying what Paris has to offer.

It's wonderful to be woken by the Parisian dawn chorus, to feel, albeit temporarily, part of a vibrant little community, and to be a few minutes stroll from Rue Mouffetard and le Jardin des Plantes. There are almost too many choices of places to eat, drink and watch the world go by but should you want to go further afield there are plenty of transport options.

And finally mention must be made of Andrew who cannot be bettered as a host. Despite being far away in Jordan during our stay, he responded promptly and fully to all our small difficulties (such as being confronted with an induction hob, a new experience for us). Thank you for a great holiday Andrew!

Well located in the heart of Paris in the famous Latin Quarter, my studio is surrounded by good restaurants and food shops. If you like markets, there is also the famous Rue Mouffetard around the corner with it's fresh food beautifully laid out every day. You are within easy walking distance of Notre Dame, the Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens, the Botanic Gardens among others. Discover my neighbours who, for the most part, also speak many languages, including English. It would be a delight to have you enrich our local neighbourhood with your tales. Come and join me in experiencing Paris the Parisian way.
