Exceptional apartment in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had the great fortune to stay in this fabulous, elegant apartment. Located in a beautiful and secure building in a great neighborhood, the Seine is a block away with the Louvre just across the river. The apartment is immaculate and decorated with beautiful art and furnishings. Ruth and Zahra (housekeeper and driver) were both wonderful and invaluable sources of advice and assistance when needed. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, as well- I highly recommend staying here, we can't wait to return!

Fabulous apartment, perfect location, quiet!

  • 5 of 5

You really feel like you are in old Paris at this lovely, comfortable apartment. Everything needed for staying-in entertainment is there, including guest baths, a complete kitchen, and breakfast area. The owner has decorated the apartment with comfortable furniture including antiques, and linens. The tall windows facing away from the street open to a quiet garden with trees that give privacy and a leafy green atmosphere. Excellent security. Fabulous restaurants within walking distance of a few blocks, and two Metro stations with separate lines are just a few minutes away.

This apartment cannot be bettered

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in the apartment, and that itself is a statement about the apartment and its comfort, understated elegance, and location. Kept immaculately clean by a delightful housekeeper, with an owner who pays attention to the finest details and is always responsive to questions and requests, one can find no better home from home in Paris.

Turn left as you leave the building and in five minutes you're at Eric Keyser for your croissants, sandwiches, bread. Cross the street for the finest cheeses (with recommended wine complements) at Androuet, then take a few steps towards home and stop at Maison Guyard (under-described as a Deli) and cross the street for fruit and vegetables at Au Verger d'Alice...and you have lunch or a light dinner.

Of course add another five minutes to your walk and you're at the Musée d'Orsay, or crossing the Seine (yes it's that close) and almost to the Louvre.

Don't forget the key bus stops a minute away, plus a plentiful supply of taxis, and you are set to enjoy Paris from the perfect home base.

We cannot recommend this apartment, nor its owner, more highly.

A wonderful place in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two week stay in this wonderful apartment, perfect for a special Paris celebration. Beautifully appointed, clean and spacious, this lovely residence is located on a quiet street but centrally located. The owner is delightful to deal with and cares about her guests. The host/housekeeper is so helpful and welcoming. All in all, a very special place!

Perfect Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to this lovely apartment in St. Germain. Paris is a favorite destination and I've stayed in a number of different neighborhoods and this apartment may be located in the best of them all. It is located on the left bank in line with the Louvre "pyramid" and just a block from the Seine. The apartment is in an 18th Century building on the second floor (i.e., the third floor in Europe). The living room and the second bedroom overlook a relatively quiet street (for central Paris) and the back of the apartment, including the master and the kitchen, overlook a central courtyard. There were only two of us and we did not use the second bedroom, but the master bedroom was spacious with an en suite bathtub/shower combination. The living room was quite large with two couches, a coffee table, and a smaller dining table. The apartment was decorated with period and eclectic antiques and a wonderful selection of art. The kitchen was fully functional and was stocked with an assortment of pots, pans, and other accessories. Gas range and a large freezer and refrigerator were available for our use. I also appreciated the Nespresso machine and the kitchen table that overlooked the courtyard.

We had no complaints about this apartment, although I would love faster wifi as I had to work a bit during our stay. I did appreciate the ip telephone that I could use to make calls to the states. I do think that two traveling couples could comfortably share the apartment. Communication with the owner was prompt and good. Her housekeeper was quite pleasant and was at the apartment to let us in upon arrival. My only other comment is that the apartment is a walk-up on some stairs that, while grand, could be a bit tricky on the way down (or up). Other than, I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
