About the property

Two bedroom, sleeps 4 with a/c and elevator

Facing the courtyard, this 5th European floor apartment is joyfully bright, sunny and very quiet. Large and well decorated, with two bedrooms, the apartment is 67 m2 in size (@720 ft2). It has an enclosed kitchen, large living room space, with good size windows for lots of light all day long. There's even portable air conditioning for the warmer days in summer, along with a full bath and shower, plus a separate WC. The newly renovated building is quite handsome and well kept, featuring a cage enclosed wooden elevator, and a concierge. The apartment is just a 2-minute walk from the gates of the Luxembourg Gardens. In case you don’t know it, besides its beautiful trees, flower beds, vistas and fountains, the “Luxembourg” also features an expansive playground for toddlers and kids with lots of outdoor facilities including swings, climbing areas, ‘soft-ground area, puppet shows and ponies to ride! There are paths to jog on, basketball and tennis courts, and for a slower more serious pace the French ‘boules’ or pétanque. Many people take in a summer band session under the gazebo... or you can just sit and people watch, like the French do!

Rue Vavin is a great street with several 'must have' shops, like the famous chocolatier Jean-Paul Hevin (perhaps the best chocolates in Paris, if not the world), along with bakeries and cafes. The apartment is very quiet due to its ‘off the street’ exposure onto a quiet courtyard. It has a queen size bed in the master bedroom, and 2 twin beds in the second bedroom. A comfortable sofa sleeper in the living room can accommodate a child but the total may not exceed 4 persons. In this apartment you will be in the best of two worlds on the Left Bank…living in an authentic Parisian neighborhood near a very beautiful garden, yet only a short walk away from the tourist attractions of St. Germain des Prés and Montparnasse.

The apartment sleeps up to 4 persons in three beds including one queen bed and two twin beds.

About Vacation in Paris

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. Vacation In Paris began in 1998 with one apartment in the 7th district, home of the Eiffel Tower, and has grown to include more than 100 apartments. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location of this sparkling apartment was superb and we would go back tomorrow! All mod working order. Although tiny, the lift was adequate. The manager came and thoughtfully set up an air-conditioner for us when it became warm. The attention to detail and the care shown by the staff at Vacations in Paris was excellent. Thankyou

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The property had all we (elderly couple) needed, small but fully equipped kitchen, very good lounge and TV, 2 good bedrooms. Clean and very tasteful. And, very important, an elevator as apartment is on the 5th floor. Convenient buses. Very helpful manager. Handy for local shops and restaurants.

Lovely apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in this property and we would definitely stay there again. It's a block from one of the entrances to the Luxembourg Gardens, which are absolutely stunning. It is in a quiet but thriving neighborhood - not too many tourists, mostly locals which made it more enjoyable. Fabulous bakery right across the street, very good cafe (Cafe Vivan) a few doors away, grocery store (Franprix) right around the corner, several wine shops right there, other local clothing stores also right there (we were there in early August so all the sales were going on). Several close by subway stops, and Montparnasse and all it's offerings are a few short blocks away. The apartment overlooks a courtyard so it is very quiet at night, you can sleep with the windows open and there were no bugs!. There is a portable air conditioner, which we used once, but the weather was very cooperative and we really didn't need it. As is the case with most Paris apartments, the kitchen is small, but fully equipped. The 2 bedrooms were very comfortable and we slept well; there's also a sleeper sofa in the LR but we didn't use it. The building is very secure and has a small elevator that can hold 2 people at a time. The property manager was terrific; English is her native language although her French is perfect too! She contacted us before we arrived and was there to greet us on arrival day. She showed us the apartment and all its workings and then walked us around the neighborhood to familiarize us with everything. She called us the day of our departure to make sure we had had no problems. She also has prepared a notebook with directions on how to use the appliances and local phone numbers for taxis, doctors, etc. The only criticism I have is that we packed light so we would have no checked bags, knowing there was a washing machine/dryer in the apartment. It's a single unit in the kitchen that does both, and while the washing part worked well, the dryer took a long time; however, there is a laundromat very close by as an alternative. Also, there is a single bath towel and 2 hand towels for each occupant so if you need a fresh bath towel during your stay, you either have to live with the one you have or wash it and wait for it to dry! These were VERY MINOR items about our stay - I highly recommend this property.
