About Rizzoli Vittoria

My mother bought this property as her pied a terre here in Paris where I live.

I am and architect here in Paris and I help her to rent the apartment when she is not here.

Rizzoli Vittoria purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Rizzoli Vittoria chose Monnaie

We choose to buy this property because, we are Italian and for us Paris is Saint Germain.

My mother made part of her study here in Saint Germain and when I first arrived in Paris I lived not far from here.

The dream to have an apartment is the middle of the heart of Paris became true.

What makes this apartment unique

When you are in the apartment, you really have the impression to get in the real Paris.

The decoration goes very well with the style of the building and I could stay inside next of fireplace reading a book and looking out at the Parisian roofs.

Very cozy and warm.

We hope that You will love it as we do!

Great location for popular sights as well, fun pedestrian street. Safe for solo travelers.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a week in this quintessential Parisian flat. Property sits on attractive residential street off a popular street with casual restaurants and close metro stop. Easy train ride from Charles De Galle. Nice updated kitchens and bath. Pull out couch was fine for myself or, couple. Nice balcony over looking European square. Very short walk up one flight of stairs after 2nd secured entrance. Linens provided for 1-2 people. I enjoyed the proximity to Museums and Luxembourg Gardens. Last day, I took the Paris by Mouth ‘ Left Bank Tour’ (fabulous) . Tour guide walked us in and out of some of the best places to find great food in Paris ( all around my apartment)! I wish I had stayed longer to use my refrigerator!

Central Location, Parking Nearby, Picture-Perfect, Quaint Parisian Flat

  • 5 of 5

Just as pictured! Small quaint apartment, with a comfortable feel that provides you that authentic Parisian-living experience! All amenities provided, excellent bathroom, bed comfortable, great neighbors, and upscale adjoining flats! It was magical to look across and see the neighbors decorating their Christmas trees, and we even made room for a tiny Paris sized Christmas tree in front of the fireplace! Great stay! Thanks for sharing and allowing us this one of kind experience!

Best location in most well designed apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is great. As you walk into it, you are going to think it is small. It is, but so well put together that, within a day, you will not think of it as small. The owner is an architect, and must be a very good architect.

Building is historic, quiet and pleasant. Location is absolutely the best. Convenient to important sights, the Metro and services.

Of our maybe two dozen apartment rentals, this is one of the very best.

Everything is like in the Pictures Location is perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 5 weeks in the Apartment From mid-Sept. to mid-Oct. Vittoria is a wonderful host a very nice person and leaves so many little-unexpected things including a small bottle of Champagne we enjoyed. She also is available by internet with any questions during your stay and very prompt in reply. While it is small it has everything you need. The bed while I was worried it was a sofa bed I need not have worried as it was very comfortable like sleeping on a regular thick mattress. The TV worked fine with plenty of channels and on a pull-out swivel so you could watch TV from bed if you wanted. The Internet important to me for keeping up with my monthly bills and banking worked flawlessly.The Dining table was as pictured and the bathroom was a luxury beautiful with a great shower. The Kitchen also small two burners electric there is an exhaust fan, little fridge fine, and microwave. I love to cook and we did about half of the time as I love the ingredients and farmers market in Paris. With a bit of juggling, I put out some great meals including Dover Sole lemon butter sauce sauteed potatoes and Mash Salade also a Veal Chop with sauteed mushrooms and creme fresh sauce to name a few dishes I did challenging but can be done. One hint you need to pick up a 12 " pan to go along with what is there if you try this kind of cooking. Most I do not think will cook like this so everything is there most people will need. There is a small washing machine no dryer but I found I did not bother because just 2 blocks away easy to find is a laundromat very clean every size machine big dryers and easy to use depending on your need about 10 euro and you're done in no time. The apartment is close to the seine easy walk to the Louvre or Notre-Dame go the other way and you are close to restaurants and Saint Germain Odeon. You have it all not far away and things that are far away the bus and metro are just a couple blocks away. We enjoyed the apartment very much and felt very safe and secure there. We thank Vittoria for her hospitality and cute apartment and seeing to it that our stay was even more memorable.

Perfect location for everything in Paris!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment has everything you need to feel at home while your in Paris. Shower and bathroom were great. Kitchen usable space. The sofa bed was comfortable enough. The pictures make it seem a little bigger and the owner could eliminate 3 or 4 of the chairs in the space to help out it's small size. It's a great little place but smaller than what is in the picture. The patio outside is over grown with plants and not really usable space. Dear owner, maybe a picture of the patio now so you could see what it really looks like. The location of this unit is great, the building around it is being renovated and lots of trucks and noise during the week. Close to lots of places to eat and drink, just a 3-4 minute walk to Notre Dame. Great place but small so realize that going in. A nice place to stay for a couple of days!

Owner's Response: Hello Gorege, I thank you for your review, meanwhile I am a little surprise about some comments. The pictures shows the apartment as it is and nobody ever mede me this remark. Your really get what you see. About the terrace out side, this terrace is ment to be green and with plants, there is a nice space with a table and two chairs to have coffee or a drink aut side but I never said that you could walk on the terrace. The terrace is a garage roof so it is not meant to walk on it. I don't understand what you mean with usable space.... It is not my faut if the neighbours make some renovations of their apartment while you were there, it happened but the it is not lased long. I think you forget to mention that at your depart I found a window broken, and I mentioned to you, you said you did not break the window and as a kindness I reumboursed you the full amount of deposit even if the reparation costed me 150€.

Beautiful, comfortable apartment in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a week in the apartment and the accommodation and location could not have been more perfect for our vacation. The apartment, although an efficiency, is well- designed to maximize space and the balcony adds another living area. The location is close to so much activity and nightlife, but the apartment is a block away from the noise and is quite serene. The location is also close to so many forms of transportation - metro, RER, water taxis - ideal for those in Paris to visit sites throughout the city. Although the owner was away, she had very good communication with us and arranged for someone to meet us at the apartment upon our arrival. We would definitely enjoy staying here again and thank the owner for a wonderful experience!

Wonderful quarter, you Artistic Legacy Meets Modern Chic:

Put on your Sunday best and head over to St-Germain-des-Prés, one of the more swanky, upscale neighborhoods in Paris. Here, you’ll find locals outfitted in Louis Vuitton and Dior whether on their way to a business meeting or out for a stroll. Situated along the Seine River, the area is also an artistic hub, with some of the city’s most prestigious museums, art dealers and small galleries. Once a spot for existentialist thinkers like Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, this is the place to see and be seen, window shop for Swarovski crystal and take home a piece of modern art for your mantel.

getting Oriented:

The St-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood lines the Left Bank of the Seine and extends southwards towards the sprawling Jardin du Luxembourg. It is hugged by the lively Latin Quarter to the east and the Eiffel Tower district to the west.

Main Streets: Boulevard St-Germain, Rue de Seine, Rue de Rennes, Rue Bonaparte

Getting There and Getting Around:

To check out the area's many art galleries, get off at Metro St-Germain-des-Prés (line 4) and walk north towards the Seine. For power shopping or a bite to eat, cross the Boulevard St-Germain and head south, or walk east from Metro Sèvres-Babylone (line 10). If you get off at Luxembourg (RER B), go northwest through the garden to get to the heart of the neighborhood.

Neighborhood History:

The Benedictine Abbey of St-Germain-des-Prés dates to the 6th century. Only the church remains, but it is considered the oldest in Paris. In one of the side chapels, you can find the tomb of philosopher René Descartes.

Around the 19th century, the area was frequented by painters like Manet and writers Balzac and Georges Sand.

After World War II, St-Germain exploded into a hotspot for existentialist thinking, avant-garde theater, painting and jazz. Picasso, Sartre, De Beauvoir, Beckett and Charles Gainsbourg are some of the famous names associated with the area.

Places of Interest:

Jardin du Luxembourg: The expansive gardens and overlooking Senate belong to the Luxembourg Palace, and are a respite from busy Paris. Stroll along the perfectly manicured lawns and flowers or sail a toy boat across the pond. If you’re lucky, you might catch a weekend jazz concert under the pavilion. Also make sure to check out the Musee du Luxembourg, Paris' oldest public museum and a historical hotbed of the arts in the city.

Musée d’Orsay: This famous museum houses mostly French art from the mid-1800s to early 1900s, including an extensive collection of impressionist works by artists such as Monet, Renoir and Cézanne.
