Overview

About the property

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.

Perfect place to live like a Parisian!

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this apartment. The location is ideal - on a quiet street just three blocks from the Seine, a grocery store around the corner, close to Boulevard Saint-Germaine, nice selection of cafes and rarely a tourist in sight. We felt like Parisians for a week!

The apartment is spacious with lots of windows, comfortable sofa, chairs and beds. The kitchen is compact and has all the kitchen items needed for cooking meals. The washer and dryer worked well, once we figured out how to work it. The bathroom with tub/shower was larger than expected. We found several multi-plug extension cords that were so helpful. We didn't mind the four flights of circular stairs, and the teeny, tiny elevator is quite the adventure!

The owner was wonderful to work with and provided specific details for check-in and check-out. Overall, an excellent apartment and I look forward to returning.

**One recommendation would be to repair the plugs in the bathroom. We managed without them, but it would be very helpful if they were working.

The apartment is very charming and is the perfect home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the space. It's definitely homey but still is clean and minimal. I'd recommend providing newer, fresher towels, bedding and pillows and also fixing the two outlets in the bathroom that do not work. We also did not have access to extra toilet paper or paper towels.

Classic charm in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Quiet street but close to everything. Right off Blvd St. Germain and everything it has to offer (shopping, cafes, bars) and within 10 minute walk of Louvre, Musee D'Orsay and the Seine makes this the perfect location. Building has a classic old elevator in beautiful wood paneling but can only hold 2 people if they are very close. We sent our bags up and it could only hold 3 bags and no people. The apartment has an old wooden parquet floor that is squeaks a little but the place is very comfortable. This is not someone's home, it is definitely a short term rental unit, which isn't a problem as it has everything you need.

A Gem in the St. Germain area

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property so much. The living area was comfortable and spacious. It is located in a super area -- in walking distance of so many restaurants, boutiques, and boulangeries. Also, it was an easy walk to Musee D'Orsay, Sainte-Chapelle, Luxembourg Gardens, and even the Marais District. It was hard to believe how quiet it was at night, given that we were close to a lively street -- Boulevard St. Germain. The apartment was clean and freshly painted. I would use the description "charming" rather than luxurious. It could use better lighting and repair of interior door handles and latches. All in all, though, we were pleased with our choice.

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Your own Paris apartment in a neighborhood filled with interesting shops and restaurants and walking distance to major landmarks. The apartment is elegant, comfortable, clean and exactly as pictured. Your local hosts are very helpful and easy to work with. Arrived to a fridge stocked with milk, OJ and coffee and appreciated recommendations about where to go for dinner. Recommend to others.
