Located on the left bank in Saint Germain des Prés near the St. Sulpice Church, you are in the ideal place to visit and enjoy the museums, parks, shopping, and night life of Paris. By living in the center, you can easily walk down to the Seine to visit Notre Dame, the Louvre or the d’Orsay Museums, walk through the Latin Quarter, and relax in the Luxembourg Gardens. Gourmet shopping is next door with the Bon Marché Grande Epicerie and the Saint Germain Market only two blocks away. Five buses stop in front and three metro lines are within one block.

The ground floor Studio is in a 1700's building and was renovated last year. It is large, quiet, and opens onto an isolated back garden shared with a couple of artist studios.

About Owner

Françoise and David, the owners and managers of the apartment, live in the same building. They bought and renovated the apartment in order to have space for family and friends visiting Paris. They have rented the space whenever free through VRBO since 2005.

Owner purchased this condo in 2004

Why Owner chose Paris

We have many regulars that come once or twice a year for their 'Paris stay'. People are never surprised when they first see it, as the photos and description are accurate. We have been receiving wonderful reviews for years from the now hundreds of people that have stayed there.

What makes this condo unique

Its ground floor, no stairs. Its quiet. Its clean. Its fully equipped. ITs well decorated. Its secure. In the nine years of renting we have never had a security incident, nor have our neighbors. You can walk out of the back door into a large, unique, hidden courtyard, planted with trees and flowers.

Great Space in the Perfect Place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment with two adults and two kids, and it was the perfect space. A vastly superior alternative to two hotel rooms in every way. Quiet, clean, spacious, and convenient - we couldn't have asked for more. Amazing food and shopping were just steps away. Everything was very well organized, and the owners were very attentive. We highly recommend it.

Perfectly situated and stocked for a comfortable stay within the heart of Paris outside the door....

  • 4 of 5

In the heart of a chic and history laden district, this courtyard apartment offered everything we needed to be comfortable. We appreciated the good lighting, hot water, quiet, nice neighbors, great shopping and proximity to all St. Germain has to offer. The metro is close by, the entry instructions were clear, the owners responded to a few questions immediately...we wouldn't hesitate to return to this apartment although we have rented others. An excellent value, we are very satisfied renters!

Great Stay in Saint Germain

  • 4 of 5

We recently had 3 wonderful nights in Paris and the apartment in St Germain was perfectly situated. It is close to the St Sulphuce Metro and buses also and many cafes and restaurants are nearby. The apartment was easy to access the owner sent detailed instructions to access the keypad and how to get there. It is a charming little apartment with everything you need for a comfortable stay and great that it is on ground level with no stairs to climb! There's a fully equiped kitchen and a washing machine and dryer for laundry. There were some grocery items in the pantry to use. Everything you need! The apartment is one bedroom but there is also a foldout double sofa if you had additional people sharing. The shower was good with great hot water and good water pressure.Also good wifi coverage. So we would recommend the property and would stay again. We didn't meet our landlady but spoke to her by phone and email communication and she was very helpful and nice. It was quiet at night and very safe and secure in a wonderful neighbourhood. We could hear the upstairs neighbours at night with the wooden floors but it didn't bother us too much.

This apartment was perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights here, and were very pleased. The apartment is beautiful, just as pictured. It was very conveniently located, making it easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The owners provided a complete list of recommended restaurants, markets and specialty shops. Altogether a very pleasant visit. I would love to go back!

Quiet, functional 1 bedroom.

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived at 5:00 pm the apartment had not been cleaned, which he owner was not aware of until we called. She said it would be ready in an hour. We came back in an hour and a half and it still was not ready. Finally we got in at 6:45 pm.

There were 3 of us and the space functioned fairly well. The bedroom only had a chest of 4 drawers, but we worked with it.

The pull out couch bed was much more comfortable than the bed in the bedroom.

It is on a courtyard so very quiet, which we look for in Paris. In a great neighborhood... many restaurants and shops near by.

Over all the place was fine, but I would suggest checking with owners before you arrive to o make sure it is ready. Also it works best for 2 people.
