Simply between heaven and well..... heaven! The Luxembourg Gardens with all their regal glory are just a short walk away and the best of St. Germain and St. Michel areas where you are in the true heart of the city!
This is a wonderful large apartment, one flight up on the 1st European floor (2nd US) that has been completely renovated from bottom to top, finishing in June 2012. The property owners are in the fashion business and love Paris - and it does show! They have thought out every detail, to ensure both their stay in Paris, when they come to visit a couple of times per year, and your stay is very comfortable and in beautiful surroundings. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends, separated by a grand salon which is a combo living room and kitchen area. It can easily accommodate up to 4 adults + 2 children, with large comfy beds and the luxury of 2 full bathrooms!
This apartment is located in a bustling and vibrant area. The owner has installed all double paned windows to help reduce noise, but some may still be sensitive to it . As the windows are large and plentiful, there is a good deal of light to make this feel open and even larger than it already is. The high ceiling have been stripped or ‘opened’ to expose the original wooden beams, dating back to the 18th century. One bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a shower, sink and the WC, so it is private to this bedroom. The other bathroom is accessed off the entryway, and is open for all guests to use, with a shower, sink and WC as well. The second bedroom is quite large with plenty of closet space. It features two twin size beds that can be separate or pushed together, please specify your preference at time of booking, to form a queen bed, and the other bedroom has a queen size bed. The living room has a very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper, with an extra thick mattress which is easy to use. Both the large bedroom with the twins/queen bed and the living room area feature an air-conditioner, to cool down for those few warm summer days after you have been out shopping so much!
The kitchen is open to the living area, and is accompanied by a large dining table for up to six people. The kitchen has all you need to cook or just reheat delicatessen items, and there are many great ones around! See below for amenities.
There are so many places within easy strolling distance; Notre Dame, Blvd. St. Germain and St. Michel, Cafes Deux Magots and Café Flore, the River Seine for boat trips and picnics on its banks, and of course, all the wonderful small bistros and cafes just outside your door. This apartment is next to one of the best shopping areas Bonaparte and Blvd St. Germain, with top brand names stores a few steps away; Yves Saint Laurent, Max Mara and other top brand names stores are close to the apartment. Transport on the nearby metro is simple, just a 2-minute walk away. Come and enjoy the best of Paris in this rich and vibrant neighborhood. Maybe one of the top ‘faves’ on your list will be this beautiful Parisian home, so well appointed and tranquil, - just for you!

Very traditional, yet modern facilities!
We loved the location. There are lots of shops and restaurants near by.
I went to the bakery Secco every morning for outstanding croissants and baguettes.
Easy walk to the Seine and Luxembourg Garden. St Suplice church is minutes away
and the square there there was inviting with an awesome fountain.
It helped during the hot spell we had that there were two air conditioning units in the apartment.
There were comfortable beds and a creative kitchen along one wall.
Bright and beautiful, well-situated and secure apartment
We loved your beautiful apartment and its fantastic location. We felt like we were part of the neighborhood, and enjoyed being surrounded by restaurants and shopping opportunities. We really lucked out with the weather for the most part, as it wasn't nearly as hot as it usually is in August (from what we've read). That said, when we did need to use the air conditioners, they didn't make much difference in the main living area. And at times we were unable to have the windows open because of all the cigarette smoke wafting up from the restaurant patrons and passersby in the streets. David was a superb host and answered all our questions. Would definitely return. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Excellent place for a group!
We stay here the last week of June. The best feature is the central location and wonderful St. Germain neighborhood. Wonderful restaurants, patisseries and boutiques right outside. Easy access to 3 Metro stations. Everything is very cramped but that is part of the charm of living like a Parisian. It is true that the drunken revelers can be quite loud late at night but the windows can be shut if they bother too much. The portable AC units do work but not like central A/C. Nice to have a washer and dryer for clothes but it is a combined washer/dryer in a single unit and the drying can take a while.
Our family of six stayed at this fantastic location for five nights and were so sad to have to finally leave. The location is amazing - in the heart of St Germain and literally on top of gourmet alley. We were in walking distance to metro and Luxembourg Gardens and 15 minute walk to Concorde Plaza or Notre Dame. The Property Manager met us onsite and introduced us to the apartment and made sure we were comfortable with how everything worked before he left. He even gave us tips for nearby grocery and pharmacy. We had everything a family of six needed including AC and the capability of doing laundry. We would highly recommend this space for visits to Paris – it was a wonderful experience for us.
