Spacious apartment with personal decor. Sleeps up to 5 persons
Given any city in the world, wherever you find real estate prices to be the highest, you are surely in the most sought-after place to be. Such is the reality of the St. Germain des Pres district on the Left Bank in the historic centre of Paris. For reasons that should become obvious once you are there, this particular area of Paris is the most desirable for many seasoned travelers who know Paris well. Here you have quiet courtyards, with history, beauty and convenience at your fingertips, and many major museums and monuments within a short walking distance of the flat: the Seine River is a couple of blocks down, the ORSAY MUSEUM is a 5 minute walk and if you add another couple of minutes, you can get to the LOUVRE MUSEUM by crossing the river. The fabulous location, combined with the modern amenities of this lovely, spacious flat, should be all that you need to experience living in Paris, content as a cat.
The area came to be called the ‘Pré aux Clercs’ (or Scholar’s Field), since it was where student intellectuals (an early meaning of the word ‘clerk’), went to relax, picnic and party, in defiance of the austere, disapproving monks who lived next door in the Abbey of St. Germain des Pres. How appropriate, you might say, to be staying in a place on a street that is symbolic of fun loving, carefree student life, for Paris is Pleasure, as we all know, and when you splurge on a flat like our ST GERMAIN PRE AUX CLERCS property, you are undoubtedly here to enjoy the best of what Parisian life has to offer. The space in the apartment is only one of the luxuries that you will come to partake, as you pamper yourself with well deserved indulgence in the finer things in life.
High above the street and accessible by elevator, in this particular haven of transparent space, with morning, then evening sunlight pouring in and an atmosphere of calm repose, you should consider yourself to be privileged to savor Parisian life at its best.

Great location and comfortable
First of all Josephine was amazing. She met us at apartment and was quick to respond with communication. She even set up an ac for us Texans. The beds were very comfy and linens new. The wood floor was loud. Didn’t bother us but if you have light sleepers or babies it might be an issue. One suggestion is maybe provide coffee and filters. There was coffee but no filters. There is a nespresso machine that I purchased pods for but you have to hold down button for it to work properly and it’s super loud if you are trying to be quiet. Not a huge deal though. Apartment is charming and very Parisian.
Tranquil setting off St-Germain
Spacious and quiet. Comfortable beds and furniture. Well equipped kitchen. Good location. Squeaky wooden floors were annoying . A few small repairs to furnishings would be advisable. The drapery pole fell off when we tried to close bedroom drapes, could not close all shutters, bathroom lights above mirror didn’t work. The elevator is petit but functional. The entry is secure and safe with nice tile floor and the stairway was wide and not steep. Madame waited patiently until our arrival due to accidents and heavy traffic. We weren't disappointed but might try another place next time.
Our stay in this apartment was lovely. It is spacious and walkable to many points of interest, restaurants, shops, and the metro. The hosts were very gracious and replied quickly to questions. Merci!
Location and communication were great!
We had a last minute cancellation with another company and booked this apartment without too much research.. the location is great - easy walking distance to restaurants, monoprix, bus/train.. and siteseeing! Furnishings were decent - a little rough around the edges.. can tell that this doesn’t see an owners use, and it shows a bit.. broken drawers, handles, floor boards, and the electrical was an issue.. lots of bulbs out, but the loose wiring from the wall and areas where plugs aren’t working at all made the stay a bit tricky. Elevator is a 2 person luggage lift and the washer/dryer is really a washer with a spin dry/steam setting. Thankfully a decent amount of hangers for drying :). On the plus side - in unit water heater.. hot water was never an issue.. and the street is a quiet street around the corner from trendy St. germain.. All said - we would go back, but only if certain repairs were made.
The apartment is lovely, location couldn't be better, we walked everywhere, the louvre was only 5 min walk, we stayed confortable as a family of six. Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic location and charming rental that ticked all the boxes for my wife and I.
Brilliantly located in a quiet street 100m off Boulevard St Germain, this charming rental will adequately accommodate a family of 4 or 5. It is as described in the owners advertising and I would rent again.
Paris can offer about everything!
