About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The rue de la Huchette existed as early as 1200 as the rue de Laas, a road running adjacent to a walled vineyard property known then as the clos du Laas. The property was sold and divided for urban development in the early 13th century, grew many noble properties in the centuries following, but from the 17th century the rue de la Huchette was known mostly for its taverns and rotisseries ('meat-cookers').

The rue de la Huchette is one of Paris' oldest Rive Gauche streets. Running eastward just below the Seine river from the Place Saint-Michel, it is today an animated Latin Quarter artery.

This fully renovated apartment is located on the Left Bank, on a pedestrian street in the heart of the Quartier Latin a few yards from the Place Saint-Michel, two minutes from the Seine, just a few steps away from Notre Dame de Paris, Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis. Equally close by in the opposite direction close is the Hôtel de Cluny (with the famous Cluny tapestries), Odéon and Saint-Germain des Près….

It is so central, just about all of Paris is in walking distance.

Much of the area dates from the 16th and 17th Century, featuring narrow streets, fine architecture, boutiques, galleries, cinemas, restaurants, cafés. When not exploring the small winding streets, one can stroll along the Quai alongside the Seine.

This fully renovated apartment is on the second floor of a very well-kept sixteenth century building on a pedestrian street in the heart of the Latin Quarter. It has recently been refurbished to exacting standards. Ingenious use of space allow for modern convenience.

You can see the Place Saint Michel, a rallying point for Parisian students, when you step out on to the balcony.

The balcony overlooking the street is furnished with a typical round French bistrot table - perfect for sitting at and having your morning café and croissants.


The kitchen has glossy red kitchen cabinets, and white and grey tiled walls; it is well equipped with a refrigerator, an induction range, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker, dishwasher and washer-dryer. It also has a small table which can seat two.

Bath 1.25

The bathroom has a modern sliding door shower. All bed and bath linens are included. A hair dryer is provided.

There is a separate toilet with a sink.

Metro Station St. Michel, which serves the Metro line 4 as well as the RER lines B and C. And many many busses : 96, 63,85,82, 21,27,24,86,87…

And the Bateaux Mouches for a trip down the Seine….

Great stay in very Parisian apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at this apartment on Rue de la Huchette! The location was fantastic with the San Michel metro station nearby as well as Notre Dame. The beds (queen & couch) were very comfortable, the shower was great, and we took advantage of the tiny balcony to watch the activity below. Rue de la Huchette is a very busy street late into the night, but once you close the windows, you can't hear much of anything. We also used the washer/dryer which was very helpful. We would definitely stay again - it's truly in the heart of Paris!

Great stay, charming apartment, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment was fantastic! The place was beautifully decorated with lots of interesting books up in the dining room. It was very clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and the pictures on the website truly reflect the beautiful style of the apartment. We took advantage of the kitchen and all the DVD movies that were available in the apartment. The location was perfect for us, as we were close to Notre Dame and two subway stations which made getting around Paris a breeze. We got well acquainted with the neighborhhood restaurants, food shops, including the bakery, wine, butcher and grocery store all within about a 3 minute walk from the apartment! The host was so gracious to even arrange a private car to pick us up at the airport and met us at the apartment to show us around. He was so kind as to also arrange for us to have a taxi on our last day back to the airport, and met us to say goodbye that day as well. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation in Paris and for your wonderful apartment and service to your guests! As my father in law on our trip said, it's not a matter of if we'll return to your apartment but when...

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

"Heart of Paris" is a wonderful apartment, and perfect for a couple or 2 - 3 very good friends. Sauveur has considered all your needs: location, security, amenities (Kleenex, soap, a lovely bottle of wine, a great bed, and maybe the best shower in the world - hot and strong!) While Rue de la Huchette is a popular (crowded) tourist spot, one block away is the Seine, with plenty of peace and quiet. You are truly in the center of Paris and within walking distance (or a few steps from the metro) to all the amazing sights of what is arguably the most beautiful city in the world. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

PS. This is the third apartment of Sauveur's that my husband and I have stayed in while visiting Paris. He is the ultimate considerate and accommodating host.

We loved it! Right in the center!

  • 5 of 5

We had loved our stay in Paris at this comfortable apartment. he apartment is secure, well maintained and the access to computer and international calling is a bonus. The price is accessible, the location is perfect for visiting by foot this wonderful city. It is located just a few steps away from Notre Dame in the heart of the Latin District. T I have recommended this rental to all my friends. The host was incredibly helpful in all aspects and was quick to respond to any inquiries. I look forward to a return visit!

Notre Dame is around the corner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in March 2015. The place was extremely clean as well as beds and linens. They provided everything needed. As tourists with 2 kids , we were out all day, and we returned to this apartment only to rest and cook since they is everything to cook your own dinner and to clean your clothes with the washing machine. The location is indeed ideal and the rental price is correct! The apartment is right in the middle of dozens of restaurants, but the streets are pedestrian. We like the vibration of the city at night so we left the windows

open, but when you close the windows, you do not hear anything. The Metro is few feets away, easy coming from airport. a short block walk and you see Notre Dame and the Seine. We would come back at the next occasion. The host and the owner were very easy to communicate with. Merci!
