The property has a nice large balcony overlooking the pedestrian market street of rue Buci ('pronounced boo-see'). At 75 m2 (@800 ft2) this rental can easily accommodate up to 4 adults and a child sleeping on the living room sofa. This holiday rental apartment was recently renovated from top to bottom and everything is new as of August 2010. It has a very open feeling, with several of the windows opening out to the front terrace and overlooking the buildings around the St. Germain area, with lots of blue sky view!
You will be square in the middle of this lovely and bustling rue Buci market street with all its cafes, flower shops, several bakeries, specialty cheese shops and butchers, and plenty of non-stop restaurants. Odeon metro stop on line #10 is a short 2-minute walk and a bit further is St. Michel for several more transport stops including direct RER lines to airports. And of course, St. Michel is so popular and central, from which you can pop over to the 2 river islands and visit the St. Chappell 15th century church or of course, Notre Dame. So many places to see and such a comfortable to call your home base!
You will only have to carry up your luggage the first time of course, or assistance can be prearranged if you wish, as this property is on the 5th European floor with no lift – European 5th means five flights up with no elevator. The stairs are wide and not too steep, and we are sure you will be happy to return each day to your spacious and wonderful apartment to relax and enjoy it!
Each bedroom comfortably accommodates two adults. The master bedroom in this Paris holiday accommodation has a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two single twin size beds -one of the single pulls out from under the other and may be pushed close together, but because they are slightly different in height, they cannot be combined. The living room has a large sofa, not a pullout, which would be comfortable for a child up to about 8 years old – sheets, a pillow, and blanket will be provided. There are some children’s decorations and items in the flat that belong to the owners.
This Paris property has two bathrooms, one ensuite in the second bedroom that has a WC, sink, and large walk in shower. The second bathroom is independent and accessed from the living room and has the same setup as first bathroom and in addition, it has a rainfall type of shower head. Each bedroom and bathroom are of generous size.
The kitchen in this Paris holiday rental is large and open to the living/dining area. The dining room table seats five people comfortably, and there is a high bar style counter with three bar stools that separates the kitchen from the living/dining area. There is everything you need in the kitchen to do some serious cooking, or just reheat any items purchased from the delicatessen below!
Our goal at Vacation In Paris is to offer an intimate and memorable stay in the "City of Light" experiencing the Parisian life at an affordable price. Our family run business enjoys sharing our personal knowledge and love of Paris with our guests.

Our rentals are located throughout the city and are in the most desirable neighborhoods for visiting the city. We offer a wide variety of apartments that will suit both budget minded travelers as well those looking for luxury accommodations. Our philosophy is to treat each and every guest as if it's the trip of lifetime. Our unique Paris apartment rentals will let you enjoy this city as a Parisian, rather than a tourist. Whether this is your first trip to Paris or you're a seasoned Francophile, after using a Vacation in Paris apartment, you may not want to return home!
The apartment was in wonderful condition upon arrival. The neighborhood is outstanding, especially with the nice outdoor balcony and close proximity to the metro. The bedding was extremely comfortable and well appointed, decorated in true Parisian style. The kitchen and bathrooms were outstanding, extremely clean, well designed, and far exceeded our expectations. Although there were a lot of stairs to reach it, we managed fine and used them to stay fit during our vacation! I definitely recommend bringing efficient/ minimal luggage due to the need to carry it up 5 stories. It was a great 'home base' while we explored the beautiful city of Paris, and I would definitely recommend it to my best friend and/or stay there again.
Our location was great. We didn't mind the climb of five flights of stairs as we were prepared for it. David who greeted us was very good. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. There was no info package at the home which he said he was working on. It had disappeared with the previous vacationers.
The problem was the noise from the street and the people upstairs. They entertained all night, wearing high heels on a wood floor and dragging chairs across the floor. We wrote them a note the first night but it continued through the second night.
The smell of chinese food in the stairwell and back court yard was a little much.
The unit itself was clean, had comfortable beds and provided the basics.
The apt was spotless, comfortable and very well appointed. Rue De Buci is centrally located and within walking distance of many important sites. My issues were with the difficulty in opening the apt. door with key provided and the second bathroom which, essentially, contained a none working toilet. Both should be corrected. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
St. Germain was a great apartment! We thoroughly enjoyed the location - many restaurants, shops, bakeries, etc. right around you. It was easy to access many site-seeing locations by foot. The apartment was nice. The property managers were kind enough to let us know that it was a 5th floor walk-up and that the street was noisy, especially at night. However, we specifically wanted a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment and we could only use one toilet as the 2nd bathroom toilet had a warning on it that it backed up. That was disappointing since that was one of our requirements. If the owners could fix this problem, we would have nothing else to complain about. We really enjoyed our time in Paris and loved coming home to this apartment.
