Everything is simple. A café on the street corner, a baker further up, a small and charming triangular square with other cafés and shops. A grocery shop open till eleven at nigth in front of the building.

The apartment is in the center yet extremely quiet, an oasis in the bustling 'Rive gauche' of our dreams: artists, intellectuals, the trendy side of Paris.The very famous of our dreams 'Rive gauche' district.

Charming apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Christine met us upon our arrival from CDG. What a treat to stay in her charming apartment for our first trip to Paris. Very French!

A Parisian Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from our 3 week stay in Christine's apartment in September. We are regular visitors and have stayed in 3 different Parisian apartments over the past 10 years. Christine's apartment is now our first choice. I fully endorse the positive comments of earlier visitors. The apartment's location next to the Luxembourg gardens is an outstanding feature . This enabled us to enjoy the many charms of the gardens as well as the opportunity to mingle with Parisians whilst we relaxed and sought a respite from the vibrant milieu of parisian life.

The apartment is a delightful combination of salon style and modern functionalism. Kitchen and bathroom have been updated to contemporary standards and fully satisfied our needs. The kitchen is a delight to cook in . It has all the appliances and cooking paraphernalia of an American kitchen.. So when you tire of bistro cooking you can stay home and practice your culinary skills. The apartment is surprisingly quiet being in the center of the 6th arrondissement. You have easy walking access to the heart of parisian life.

The bedroom has a comfortable mattress and an adjacent bathroom with an excellent shower. Since this is Christine's apartment , you will find that her elegant furnishings and extraordinary library give the apartment a salon cachet which is in keeping with its Parisian location.

The apartment is in an older building on the third floor. There is no elevator but this provides the opportunity for daily exercise which with the metro stairs will guarantee that you will not put on any weight even with regular bistro dining.. My wife and I had no difficulty dealing with the stairs during our stay [we are seniors] but those with disabilities would find the stairs a challenge.

The building has a concierge who is friendly and helpful. You do not need a vehicle to enjoy your stay in Paris. The Navigo pass and the 2 metro stations nearby provide easy access to the whole city. As well, if travelling from CDG by the RER train you are only a short walk from the Luxembourg RER station to the apartment.

To sum up, the apartment is tasteful, elegant and very functional.

A Great Stay in our favorite Paris Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in many apartments in various areas of Paris, but since we discovered this particular apartment 4 to 5 years ago, we have not stayed anywhere else. This was our 5th stay and we have already made reservations for next year.

Within easy walking distance, you can find great eating, great shopping and great sights.

However, keep in mind that this someone's private residence. It is in a typical Parisian apartment building, in a typical Parisian residential neighborhood. So, if you're wanting a hotel room, with hotel service and amenities, you should look elsewhere. But if you want to experience a slice of authentic Parisian life, with boulangeries, épiceries, corner bistros, Cafés, croissants, and wonderful restaurants, I would heartedly recommend this location.

Great location, welcoming host.

Location the best. Views of courtyard and garden nearby exceptional. Ease of use for all things, after an adjustment of door lock, perfect. Want to stay there again.

A charming stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This book-lined apartment practically overlooking the Luxembourg gardens on one side and an inner walled garden on the other offers one of the most charming and tranquil stays one could imagine in one of the liveliest and culturally richest areas in Paris : right next to many of the city's best publishing houses, antique book sellers, theaters of stage and screen, also bustling food markets, animated cafes, renowned restaurants, all framed by glorious 18th- and 19th-century architecture - and paradoxically, off the beaten tourist path.

The apartment crammed with books and art is suffused with Old World mid-19th-century atmosphere, from the three storeys to climb around a winding staircase (at least until a promised elevator is installed) to the fine old wooden roof-beams and the different levels of flooring between one room and the next (beware tripping in the dark) : but spacious, luminous and airy, the kitchen small but opening unto the combination dining- and drawing- room perfect for entertaining, and well-provided with most modern amenities including a good cooking stove, large refrigerator and efficient dishwasher (but adding a convenient little microwave machine would be recommended). The apartment further enjoys excellent Wi-Fi access and offers altogether a perfect place to relax after strenuous sightseeing, or to write and work in comfort knowing that all the stimulation of Paris life lies just down the stairs, across the street, around the corner.

St.Germain Des Pres, on Luxembourg Garden

  • 4 of 5

Wow! What a great location. We would recommend taking the train from CDG Airport, as it drops you off right in front of the Luxembourg Garden. Walk thru the garden to the opposite side and turn right to the apartment's address. This apartment has beautiful windows galore so, despite its dark interior, it is very bright with nice breezes. We left the windows open at night so it was comfortable sleeping. My wife and I wanted to experience the feeling of Paris; this location affords all of that. Close to everything!

We recommend the La Rotonde Cafe, located only a few blocks from the apartment. Amazing food and the perfect vantage point to people watch (Try the Sea Bass.., It is incredible!!). The markets, restaurants, etc. are in easy walking distance. We walked to the Eiffel Tower and back (to work off the calories). Christine, our host, was pretty accomodating and responded to any request (just had to call her once with a minor plumbing problem and another time on a request for a fan...the last two days of our nine-day stay had record temperatures for Paris...unfortunately, she did not have a fan so that was somewhat disappointing and very uncomfortable for sleeping). The 3 flights of stairs were a little burdensome, but there were too many positives that far outweighed this inconvenience (burns a lot of calories!). On one of our last days in Paris, we ran into Christine and she was kind enough to point out Saint Sulpice (just a block or so from where we were walking), where she recommended a nice cafe. There was also a flea market, where I purchased a beautiful 50th wedding anniversary diamond ring from a very nice jeweler. We had the stones reset and the ring polished, upon our return to the states. It was from the 30's. My wife loves it and gets lots of comments. She enjoys telling admirers that she bought it in Paris. Very impressive!!

Finally, in addition to eating at great cafes, we wanted to shop at the markets and do our own cooking. Christine's kitchen is fully stocked and has the latest and greatest appliances...We would recommend this apartment. Merci Beaucoup Christine!!
