We are not a rental business. Our not-for-profit was created in 1992 to contribute to innovation which is the force of our economy. Thru history the most ingenious inventions were created in Paris for you to discover and get inspired, one-tourist-at-a-time, we service you. Your donation is tax deductible and we will pay an incentive to purchase made-in-France.


Apply the "1-minute-rule"... less than 1-minute-walk from the river & world renown cathedral Notre Dame? Your studio is less than a minute away, steps from the river in the historic heart-of-the-heart of Paris. Arguably the most lovely location in Paris, because a walk at midnight over the magical bridges will allow you to soak the wonders of Paris then walk safely home, after dark among all the tourists in the brightly lit streets lined with cafe, and restaurants opened late.

You will save money on food, the apartment is near a gigantic gourmet supermarket open late... and if you want to stroll like a real Parisian visit the famous fresh market “Marche Maubert” nearby, which offers the most delicious fresh and cooked food, bakery, butcher, amazing cheese selection, bread and finest wines.


is most in demand with three high ceiling windows looking on a quiet courtyard; a decorative fireplace surrounded by wall-to-ceiling mirrors. The master king-size bed (from German designer Cap-A- Suivre) is straight out of Act III of that opera, an amazingly treat! There is also a mezzanine with a full size bed. The space is open. The kitchen is equipped with 4 cooking plates, a fridge, cooking ustencils, microwave, a coffee maker. For those who want to experience romantic Bohemian Paris, La Traviata is a dream comes true!

Average, can do better.

First the good. Its located in the Latin Qtr. Amazing location and very good security in the building. You can get anywhere in Paris quickly and your right in the heart of all the action.

The bad. We originally booked this flat because of its location but also because the amenities showed that this unit had a washer and dryer. When we checked in that was not the case. Owner states that none of his units had washer or dryer. So his description on the flat needs to be updated. The pictures of the bathroom and kitchen are not accurate. Although, the bathroom has been updated. The flat itself could use a little TLC. The beds are hard and uncomfortable but again that's pretty much the case in all of Europe. It can get a little loud with people walking in and out of the building. Also, someone smokes on that floor causing the Flat to occasionally stink of cigarette smoke. Not all the toiletries where provided and the Flat was dusty. Overall, we enjoyed the location but would not stay here again. Their are plenty of other Flats in better condition in the area for the same price.

Lastly, owner hits you with some 45 euro building fee charge to be left upon checking out. This was never discussed before booking. A note was left in the room when we checked in stating that someone would come by to collect it. No one ever did and we did not pay the fee.

Beau loft super bien situé !!!!

  • 4 of 5

Super beau loft typique du vieux Paris entouré de restos et boutiques. Près de l'église Notre Dame et l'endroit pour prendre le Big Bus et visiter le tout Paris . Je vous recommande ce loft !!!

Good location but very loud

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of 4 that stayed in the room. The place is not that big and no real place to place your luggage etc.

There were only 3 blankets that were available in the room. Only an sheet on the beds. The place was clean, but in the bathroom, there is no ledge to keep the water from leaking out and flooding the floor. We contacted the individuals that were supposed to be available during our stay, but never heard back from anyone.

The room is on the 1st floor and next to the stairs. It was very loud at night when anyone came up the stairs. Hard to sleep or stay asleep.

More geared towards 1 or 2 people... No views (which we knew).

BEST location!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous stay! Unfortunately, the apartment needed construction and the owners upgraded us to a larger apartment next door. It was plenty spacious for 3 people. The location could not have been better! You walk outside and you are in the heart of the Latin quarter. Lots of little shops and restaurants. Cleaning was a breeze.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Location was perfect, just a few blocks from the metro and easy access to everything. The street is bright and busy and we never felt unsafe. The instructions for entering the building were excellent and Claude provided lots of details about the building and surrounding area.

The apt. Itself is small, but worked for the three of us. Make sure you are comfortable with your traveling companions because the walls surrounding the bathroom do not go to the ceiling and one can look into the bathroom from the loft. The main room walls could use a fresh coat of paint to freshen it up a bit. We entered at 2:00 as stated in our agreement and the caretaker entered about 15 minutes later to finish up some tile work in the bathroom. We left right away so he could work but I'm not sure why this work wasn't completed before our check-in time.

Overall I would recommend because it is unique and in a great location. The bathroom has been updated and is lovely. Just a little attention to the rest of the apartment would really make the whole place shine.
