About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2 (+2)

We occasionally rent out our private apartment in the heart of Paris close to 'Jardin de Luxembourg' and Montparnasse.

75 m² (800 ft²) duplex loft, nicely decorated, cosy, stylish, contemporary, fully equipped.

Very well situated, close to RER B (direct to all airports) Metro lines 4 (North-South) and 6 (East-West). In tranquil street, yet very close to the lively neighborhood of 'rue Daguerre' with plenty of restaurants and brasseries. 15 minutes away from Saint-Germain.

You will be blown away by the breathtaking view you have all over Paris - from the Eifeltower to Bastille, and right in front you see Montmartre. Complete privacy from the outside.

I'll be most happy to help you plan your stay in Paris, even - if time permits - show you Paris as no tourist ever sees, show you little know secret places.

About Marc Smet

Belgian immigrated in 2004 and fell in love with Paris. When I'm not travelling, I'm working from home.

Marc Smet purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Marc Smet chose Parc-de-Montsouris

Except from the Eiffel Tower or Tour Montparnasse, impossible to match the view over Paris!

"Le Méridien de Paris" was build in 1963-1968 by architects Arthur-Georges Héaume and Alexandre Persitz. It is situated only 500 mètres south of l’Observatoire de Paris, exactly on the Paris' méridien.

Famous people such as Jacques Brel and Georges Brassens lived here.

Simply irresistible!

What makes this apartment unique

The view!!!

The architecture of an 'atelier d'artiste'

On the South Bank.

Easy to reach, with unmatched public transport connections.

Best View Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed 5 great days at Marc's beautiful apartment. It was immaculately clean and tastefully furnished. We had an early arrival and Marc was so kind as to leave the key with a neighbor so that we could get in before the regular check-in time. A grocery and wine store were steps from the apartment, with many bars and restaurants just a very short walk, along with a convenient metro stop. A bottle of wine was much appreciated-----we plan to stay here again next time in Paris! Thanks, Marc!

Beautiful apartment, Picturesque view, Convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Marc's apartment in August 2016. Just as advertised. It is located on the top two floors of one of the highest residential buildings in Paris. We sat on his balcony and enjoyed the view nightly. Marc had developed a website with ALL the information we needed to know before, during, and after our visit. I wish other owners would take note of this benefit. The location was just a few minutes away of the Denfert Rochereau metro stop. This major station services metro lines 4 and 6 and also the Blue RER line which takes you directly to CDG airport for 10 Euros/person. I would stay here again and do highly recommend it to others. Thanks again Marc for a memorable trip.

Great apartment in the 14th

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights here in early June. Marc was a gracious host and helped us get oriented to the apartment, which is compact and well organized. Perfect for two people: would be cramped with more. We enjoyed hanging out in the apartmeant and just watching the view change through the floor to ceiling front window.

The location is excellent -- close to the Metro, and what became our favorite cafe - Le Cir. Highly recommended.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

As we often travel to Paris for work, rather than staying in a hotel we prefer to rent a furnished apartment. This is by far the best one we've ever been to. Lots of cookware, very well equipped, nicely decorated. The location is very good, in a neighborhood that is not too touristic -at least as far as Paris goes-, so more genuine, where real Parisians live.

The owners are extremely kind and gentle.

Don't miss it!

Amazing apartment for seeing Paris and Exhibitions

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful apartment for sightseeing of Paris, or especially if you are in Paris for a trade show or exhibition taking place at Le Bourget, Parc de Exposition, or Villepinte, this apartment is perfect.

It is ideally located just a 5 minute walk from the Metro 4 line and RER B line, which is a direct route to CDG airport and the exhibition locations.

The views are stunning and the patio table fabulous for morning coffee or evening dinner.

The bed is so comfortable, the rain-feature shower divine, and the kitchen perfectly stocked for cooking meals.

Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back.
