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 Paris Arr. 6 (Latin Quarter, St. Germain)

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!

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!

Charming, small apt. with an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. Although it was small and we slept on a sofa bed (that was the only negative about the experience), the place was pristine. A new kitchen and bathroom and very clean throughout. The location could not have been better-located on a quiet street between St. Germain and the river, we walked to all of our sights and restaurants.The highlight for us was the balcony where we enjoyed a glass of wine every night before going to dinner. That is the reason we would go back.

Great Location in Central Paris

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location just a couple blocks from Notre Dame. Easily walkable to the Louvre, Ste. Chappelle and other sites. Easy communication with owner. Apt. was very clean, but tiny. Fine for 2 people; sofa bed was very comfortable. Grocery and many restaurants close by.

Great Little Apartment in the Heart of a Lively Area

  • 5 of 5

The photos represented the property perfectly. As others have stated the bathroom was a very nice surprise, excellent shower! The pull out couch is amazing, you never felt like you were sleeping on a sofa bed. The complex is very quiet, you can not hear any street noise.

We felt very safe and secure in the building. The owner was very attentive to us prior to our trip and during. You could not stay in a better neighborhood in Paris whether it's your first trip to Paris or a 5th trip like ours. So close to metro, bus and RER stations. Excellent restaurants nearby. Especially the Latin Bistro, just around the corner. The daily specials were so good, we ate there four times during our ten day stay. This was the best place we have stayed in Paris over the years. Thank you Vittoria for sharing your place with those of us who come to visit Paris.

great location with no TV

  • 3 of 5

We never met Vittoria, though we corresponded through email. Her mother met us and was very sweet.

The location is great. One block from St Michel. We walked everywhere. There are loads of restaurants within one block.

We would have worried about a fold out bed but other reviewers had assured that it was fine and they were right. It was comfortable. The wooden shutters are great as they create a completely dark space for sleeping.

The bath and kitchen are fine.

The straight chairs around the table are attractive but both Kathleen and I found them terribly uncomfortable. They should be replaced.

The wi-fi connection was fine. [This should not be assumed as other places have none or very weak signal despite adverting wi-fi.]

One bad thing - The TV did not work. I had emailed Vittoria about it, but she never responded even though we corresponded on other issues, such as where to leave the key when we left. The failure to respond is really unconscionable.

If the chairs were replaced and the TV made to work, we would probably give a 4.5 stars.

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.
