Property description

This fun and homey apartment is just one block from Metro St Michel, the geographic and historic center of Paris. Here you are in walking proximity or very short metro rides to the best of Paris. Notre Dame Cathedral, St Germain de Pres Cafés and Boutiques, Les Jardins du Luxembourg, the Ile Saint Louis, the River Seine, the green bookstalls, a miriad of shops, 6 cinemas very close by. The  metro 4 , RER B and C and a taxi stand are all at Place Michel. EASY access to airport.

This spacious (59 square meter/635 square foot) duplex is a serene place to relax after enjoying and exciting day in Paris! Situated the lively neighborhood of the Latin Quarter you have easy access to all of the "must-see" places in Paris.
The apartment itself will be repainted in Early April 2016. Portuguese kitchen tile and seventeenth century doors, wooden beams and 19th century ironwork blend to create a unique and memorable place for your stay. Four of the apartment's windows overlook a quaint and typical Parisian courtyard. There are 3 other windows: one off the back, one in the bathroom and one in the kitchen which open to small covered courtyards so there is quite a bit of natural light. The back courtyard facades have also been recently refurbished. All of the windows are on courtyards so the flat is quiet.
The apartment has an open space living arrangement: You enter the apartment into the main bedroom, on the second floor of the building. The bathroom and shower are on this floor as well. The apartment is a duplex so you go up a small flight of stairs to reach the 2nd bedroom, dining and living room areas and kitchen. The second bedroom serves as the living room during the day. Baby furniture and equipment can be provided upon request.
The kitchen has all you need if you want to cook.
I am an American artist who has been living in France for 14 years. My apartment is decorated with my work and other artist's works too.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My goal is too make you feel at home while you are away. Several people have found my place so suitable that they have returned to stay. I stay in vacation homes too so I pride myself on keeping my place clean and equipped the way I like our rentals to be. I offer a comfortable place at a reasonable price because that's what I look for when I'm traveling. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my. I'm happy to help you find the right place for your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Sorbonne, Paris, France:
I bought my flat because I fell in love with all of the wooden beams at first sight!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
14 Rue Xavier Privas is truly the center of historic Paris. It's also relatively quiet so you get the fun of Paris but still can sleep at night. You turn into our courtyard and you can really have a place to rest between busy visits to all of the nearby museums and cafés. Another highlight of 14 rue Xavier Privas is the old time feel. Once inside the apartment, surrounded by all those beautiful beams you really feel like you are stepping back in time.
