Space 484 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Sleeps 3. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.

This 2 room apartment (45 m² /484 sq. f.) overlooks a paved gardened courtyard and is located in a small and quiet hidden alley of the Latin Quarter, on top of "The Hill "(Sainte Geneviève), the intellectual heart of Vibrant Latin Quarter

Completely renovated by an interior designer in January 2014, it is tastefully decorated, with nice pieces of art and antiques, completely furnished and fully equipped (TV (more than 300 channels including English channels), Internet wireless access, full equipped kitchen ...).

The apartment has a living room (with a high quality sofa/hide-a-bed that opens really easily on an "already made" bed. No need to do it every morning) and a bedroom with a matrimonial bed (French double bed : 140 cm X 200 cm). The contemporary kitchen overlooks another courtyard and has all the equipment you want, including a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. Linen and towels are of course furnished.

You are in a safe, charming, quiet small hidden alley just a few minute walk away from the Latin Quarter vibrant life. You are in the heart of THE “Village” not far from rue Mouffetard, one of the Food Temples of Paris and Place de la Contrescarpe, circled by cafés, terraces, restaurants... Rue Blainville will lead you to the Luxembourg Gardens and by taking a charming old stone flight of stairs (full of flowers in spring, summer and fall) you'll get to the famous Arènes de Lutèce, an ancient roman amphitheater where up to 15,000 people used to watch gladiators fighting, and the "Jardin des Plantes' (Garden of Plants with the famous National Museum of Natural History and the Botanical Gallery)

On your arrival, just open the cupboards and you will find tea, coffee, sugar... but also all the basic ingredients you need (oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, basic spices...) to cook a meal or prepare a salad.

We want you to feel at home in our place and will be glad to answer your questions and help you the best we can .

Why Jo-Anne Beckert chose Saint Victor

When you get back home, after your journey, exhausted, you'll be so glad to enter a peaceful gardened courtyard before resting and enjoying a glass of wine in your cozy apartment

superb! wonderful apartment, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Overall excellent in every way; great help from the host in navigating arrival and departure; superb instructions for all facets of apartment from dishwasher to washer/dryer; location is the best we have had in Paris after several visits; detailed descriptions of local restaurants, markets, stores, sights, etc. etc. We were there in dead of winter 2017-18 and were totally comfortable in apartment vis a vis heat, light, and so forth. We would recommend this apartment to anyone.

A lovely apartment on a quiet but centrally located street

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellently arranged, furnished with all necessary equipment, and very pretty as well. The owner was gracious and very well-organized, having prepared a notebook with useful information about the apartment and the neighborhood.

Perfect location and essentials for a stay in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Charms Arty Flat was perfect for my husband and I. Jo Anne was very helpful and the apartment had many useful items. Some additional items in the apartment that we rarely see in other rentals- dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, and extra towels. It is a short walk to the metro 7 and metro 10. We rarely had to take more than 1 train. The internet is helpful. There are many lovely shops in the area! We would stay here, again! Thanks for making our stay so nice!

Perfect location for a couple's vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with the Latin Quarter flat. Perfectly located between 2 metro stations made for easy access to the city. Within a 3 block radius we had access to restaurants, bakeries, and shopping. Neighborhood outdoor market just 2 blocks away. Extremely convenient after a long day of sightseeing in Paris. JoAnne, the owner, was so helpful. She met us at the flat, walked us through all the essential workings, including the kitchen and laundry. She made sure we had every detail in place to enjoy our first trip to Paris. Loved the reference book that JB has compiled. It included restaurant and tour recommendations from JB and other guests, we found it very helpful. Don't hesitate to reserve this charming, comfortable flat, great location, plenty of amenities within a few steps of the front door, and a terrific, responsive owner. Perfect for your Paris vacation!

Gem in the 5th arrondissement!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying 6 nights (end May / start June 2017) in this cosy apartment with innovative design features that make it a refreshing place to spend a holiday in Paris in the 5th arrondissement. These include: cleverly placed, ample storage spaces throughout; well-designed, well stocked, full-service, small kitchen (built-in appliances within easy reach + clever Italian-styled dish rack cupboard); motion-sensor hallway light; brilliantly designed, compact ensuite bathroom (tucked behind timbered sliding doors); well-designed wardrobe cupboards (with hanging space + his/her tie and sock/jewellery partitioned drawers); aesthetically pleasing, artfully placed artwork, sculptures and artefacts; intriguing library with maps, etc. above the compact toilet with hand basin, ingenious natural air-conditioning window shutters providing both cool relief and privacy on summery hot days.

This ground floor apartment of an inner apartment building is shielded from Rue Rollin by a quiet walled large courtyard with bench, bicycle storage and a cool shaded garden with a lovely old tree. The lively apartment community includes: residents well-known to each other but friendly and respectful to visitors; a live-in caretaker on the ground floor of the outer building; and the one-eyed, sun-loving ginger fat cat.

Anne, the host-owner, is very generous, compassionate, responsive, gracious, and well-versed with traveller requirements –see her Google+ profile. I would rate her as an excellent (10/10) host. She provided us with: a) detailed instructions for us and the taxi driver on getting to the apartment via airport, railway, road, b) detailed instructions on accessing the dual-level apartment building security system, c) a comprehensive tour of the apartment, its amenities, tips for living (places of interest, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, pharmacies, etc.) & d) visitor handbook; all of which eased transition to living at the apartment. She even responded promptly with emergency medical options when I came down with a severe, almost fatal throat infection on a long weekend! Her thoughtfulness, attentiveness and care exceeded all our expectations.

To Anne: “We thank you for such a lovely place that is so well positioned in the 5th arrondissement. Your excellent hospitality made our stay so memorable and remarkable!”

We would recommend this property for anyone wanting a compact, cosy home away from home.

Around Place de la Contrescarpe
Car: not necessary

You are in a quiet hidden alley alley, on the top of the hill (Montagne Sainte Geneviève) not far from where Ernest Hemingway lived, in the heart of vibrant Latin Quarter, full of bars, restaurants, gourmet shops ...

You are near the famous rue Mouffetard, one of the best "open market street" of Paris not far from joyful Place de la Contrescarpe

You' ll be able to go to the open market Place Monge (2 min. on foot) every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday

And you are also at a stone stroke from the Arènes de Lutèce, an ancient Roman amphitheater, where you can picnic.

Metro and bus are reachable in 3 minutes (on foot)

Place Monge (line 7) and Cardinal Lemoine (line 10)

On Sunday you can go and dance and sing old French songs, as Parisians have been doing for more than a century at the bottom of rue Mouffetard, in front of St Médard's Church. You'll love it.

Don't worry if you don't speak French. The words will be handed to you. Free !

Please note that being "on the top of the hill" (The Hill = Montagne Sainte Geneviève: intellectual heart of Latin Quarter) all the streets leading to the square are "up" streets (a litlle bit steep if you are a person with reduced mobility or with a wheel chair). You can also reach Place de la Contrescarpe from rue Monge via a flight of old charming stone stairs ... not easy for people with reduced mobility either.
