About the property

This extraordinary apartment will enchant guests with its spectacular views, architectural details, and situation in the center of Paris's beloved Latin Quarter. Located on the seventh and top floor of a building with elevator,

St. Michel apartment features a unique layout spanning over 750 square feet, with views from nearly every room. Sloped ceilings with multiple skylights, exposed beams, parquet floors, and high quality antique furnishings add to the refined décor. From the elegant balcony, guests will delight in close-up views of Notre Dame cathedral from one direction, and the Panthéon in the other.

Completely updated and remodeled, Saint-Michel apartment has a cozy sitting room with a sofa, antique wood tables and family pieces, and an ornate gilded mirror. The High Speed Internet Connection is ready to use if you bring your laptop. LCD screen cable TV in sitting room. Vintage French doors with wood shutters open to the private terrace. A table and chairs are provided as well as a retractable awning for alfresco dining and entertaining in all seasons.

Screened from view by a partial wall, the kitchen has a large wooden storage armoire, tile floor, elegant dark wood cabinets, a round dining table and a window overlooking the street. Equipment includes a full size refrigerator, electric glass cook top with full oven below, microwave, dishwasher, and combination washer/dryer.

The larger of the two bedrooms has an antique armoire, a very comfortable double bed, and a single bed. A small window looks out onto the famous gothic church, St. Séverin. In the other bedroom there is an antique armoire and a queen size bed. Both of the two baths are elegantly tiled. One has a shower stall, toilet, and sink; the second has a bathtub with hand held shower, sink, bidet and toilet.

Just a couple blocks from the river Seine, St. Michel is a pleasant walk to either 'Marché de Buci' or to 'Marché Maubert'. The area is full of outdoor cafés, boutiques, restaurants, bakeries and pastry shops. Lively Boulevard Saint-Michel is one block away.

Located on rue du Petit Pont, the apartment is steps to picturesque Rue de la Huchette and two lovely old churches, Romanesque Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre and 11th century Gothic Saint-Séverin, both used as small and intimate concert spaces where you might have the pleasure of catching a live performance. Rue du Petit Pont, a continuation of Rue St. Jacques, crosses the river and becomes Rue de la Cité on Île de la Cité where La Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris stands, between two branches of the Seine. Also on Île de la Cité, a visit or a concert at La Sainte Chapelle built by King St. Louis in the 13th century will be a memorable experience. La Conciergerie is another beautiful building on the same river island, Île de la Cité. Built in 1284-1314 to be the town’s main prison, many French citizens were imprisoned there, the most famous among them Queen Marie Antoinette, whose cell is now a chapel to her memory.

Medieval Paris can still be experienced in this area, the oldest and most historic of Paris. The Luxembourg Gardens, La Sorbonne, and Musée de Cluny are among the landmarks in the vicinity.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all loved this one. It was so cozy and charming and accessible to so much. We did have some trouble with the television and computer but our greeter was more than helpful and had one of her friends call us to help fix the computer. I have wondered if it is appropriate to give a gratuity to the property manager when she does an exceptionally good job, or if we should leave one anyway? I haven't thought about this before but Marie-Noel, who has greeted me before, if always so helpful.

We stayed in this fabulous property and still cannot believe it! I have recommended this company, and this particular property to several friends. The manager was so friendly when first greeting us and helpful in acquainting my husband and two granddaughters with the ammeneties. The ONLY negative is the noise late at night from the club below the building. I'd recommend earplugs for those who are light sleepers.This is far outweighed by the magnificent patio and view! Overall it is a magical property!

Never stay anywhere else in Paris

  • 5 of 5

From the point of my initial contact with property manger to our departure we were taken care of 100%. The only thing they failed to mention was that the pictures do not do this little slice of heaven justice and that we would never want to leave!

The apartment is larger than it appears in the pictures. It is also tastefully appointed with architectural finds. We felt like we were living in a piece of history. At the same time it was very comfortable. You definitely feel like a guest in a home.

Since our stay was in the summer, we took full advantage of the terrace. Words cannot describe how privileged we were to have coffee in the morning and wine in the evening looking at Notre Dam while we listed the the bells chiming.

The location is great. Being so close to the Seine, we felt like we could walk everywhere. The surrounding neighborhood is vibrant, lots of restaurants and shopping. The only downside to the neighborhood is, with the nightlife, it can be loud late into the evening. This never was a real problem for us.

I would, and already have, recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris. I know I will not consider staying anywhere else!

A gem

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was even better than we had anticipated. It is well appointed, well maintained, bright with windows east and west, compact and charming. The view is unique from Notre-Dame to the Panthéon. The terrace is also a big plus. It is in walking distance of the heart of Paris. There is an excellent outdoor food market nearby and other good food shops. We were delighted with our stay. We would certainly recommend it friends, relatives and even to strangers. We intend to rent it again in the future.
