About the property

Ground floor flat for up to 4 people, overlooking a green courtyard, ultra quiet

The flat is very cosy and comfortable, freshly renovated with luxury fittings, furniture and natural materials used to create a relaxing atmosphere.

There is a lot of storage space, and this makes it easy and comfortable for 2 to 4 people to enjoy the place.

The flat is bright, ultra quiet and safe, overlooking a pleasant courtyard with vegetation and flowers.

The building is ultra quiet, with kind neighbours. Not a single sound can be heard at night, although we're in the very centre of Paris. Hence it is ideal for a relaxing evening and a good night sleep after a day of visits in Paris.

In terms of access and public transport, the flat is very well connected :

- Metro: line 7, Gobelins stop (or Censier Daubenton).

- RER: Line B, Port-Royal station

- Buses : lines 21, 83 and 91, Port-Royal Berthollet stop or line 27, Monge-Claude Bernard stop

- Direct access to airports in 30 to 40 minutes :

(i) CDG (via RER from Port Royal stop)

(ii) Orly (either via new Metro+tramway link, RER or Orlybus shuttle bus)

- Direct access to Gare du Nord (RER B) and Gare de l’Est (Underground Line 7), as well as to Gare de Lyon (Bus 91), Gare Montparnasse (Bus 91) and Gare St-Lazare (Bus 21)

- car parks nearby

- Velib (bikes for public use) station at less than 100m

Also there are many convenience shops in the street and around that make it very easy to live there, on top of the daily producer's market at either end of the street.

Guests will be provided with full access to the flat equipment : kitchen appliances and kitchenware, bathroom, HDTV, cable TV, High speed internet (fibre), telephone, ...

We also ask for our guests to be respectful of the neighbours in refraining from making heavy noise when in the building. Smoking not allowed in the flat or buiding. No pets allowed in the flat.

I live a few minutes away from the flat and am always available for some tips or advice (either directly or via phone, email, text, whatsapp, viber, ...).

I will also be present to meet you upon check-in and say goodbye at the time of check-out

Do not hesitate to contact me for further information about the flat.

About Samuel Zayat

Je vis à Paris depuis près de 20 ans, et depuis 14 dans ce quartier. Je le connais donc bien et l'apprécie !

J'ai pas mal voyagé de par le monde pour le travail et les loisirs. J'aime donc à la fois faire découvrir les richesses de Paris mais aussi mieux connaitre ou découvrir d'autres cultures et modes de vie.

A bientôt !



I have lived in Paris for almost 20 years, of which 14 in this part of town. So you can tell I know it well and enjoy it a lot!

I've also traveled the world for work and leisure. I like to help discover the wonders of Paris but also to meet people from other places, environments, cultures and lifestyles.

See you soon !

Great location in Parisian neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived in Paris I texted Samuel when we had cleared customs and were on our way. When we arrived at the nearest train station, Samuel met us on the way to welcome us. On arrival at the flat, he had a welcome bottle of wine waiting. A nice touch. The flat is definitely compact and bijou, but was the perfect size for us - two adults and two teenage children (13 and 15). The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable. The weather was very warm, so Samuel had left us a fan so the flat was very comfortable and airy - especially at night. We felt very safe in the neighbourhood and absolutely loved the local markets and bakeries - so indulged every morning with fresh pastries! We also loved getting around by bus - one bus actually stops a few steps from the flat - the bus system is very easy to navigate, even for those who don't speak French. The flat had WiFi and was well equipped. Before our trip Samuel sent us a great guide on the flat and neighbourhood - we took some of his suggestions for two local restaurants and were very impressed - wonderful French cuisine. We found everyone very helpful and charming. There is so much to do in Paris, and it was quite tiring for our children, so it was a pleasure to come back to the flat and relax after a busy day. There is a great little Italian restaurant just down the street, so we just picked up some pizzas one night - so easy and quite reasonably priced. We have never used VRBO before, but will definitely do so again, as this was a very positive experience for us. Merci Samuel!

Fantastic Studio

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic studio apartment, in an ideal location in Paris. In the Latin Quarter, so very central, however, in a nice, residential area.

My family and me were very satisfied with our stay in the flat.

Nice little apartment in the Quartier Latin

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment, in a quiet street, facing an internal garden. Ground floor, make it easy to bring luggage in and out. Owner let us in early in the day and had a wine bottle (french of course!) as a welcome gift. Shower is fantastic. Fully equipped kitchen. Several food shops in the block or across the street. Only cons: closest subway is 6 blocks away or a 10 minutes walk and to access the bed you must climb a ladder - might me difficult for elderly people or anyone with a disability.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind feedback. I hope you liked your stay in Paris and in the flat. As far as the distance for the tube station is concerned, there is actually a shortcut I should have shown you that makes it easier and quicker to get to the Censier Daubenton tube station. Kind Regards, S

Fantastic Studio Apartment in the Latin Quarter

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic studio apartment, in an ideal location in Paris. In the Latin Quarter, so very central, however, in a nice, quiet, residential area. The Jardin des Plantes is literally just round the corner, with one of the "Batobus" stops literally on the other side of the park, as you walk through. The flat is very well-appointed, snug, however, the double bed is up on a mezzanine, which is fun & quirky. Very effective power shower, & a well-equipped small kitchen area. Lovely views over the roof-tops of Paris, with shutters which open out too. If you're not fit when you arrive, you will be when you leave, as it 6 floors up, with no lift, so this is one thing to bear in mind, for anyone who had any walking or physical difficulties. The owner Samuel & his wife are absolutely charming, really welcoming & super helpful. I would 100% recommend this apartment, can't wait to go back myself!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and me were very satisfied with our stay in the flat. The flat located in a nice street, safe and not crowed. It is designed very well and fully equipped; clean, bright and quite; and the space is quite enough for couples with two big children. Bed is very comfortable, also the sofa bed. My husband and kids loved the shower room and living room, myself very enjoyed in the kitchen corner.
