Rue Buci (pronounced ‘boo-see’) is considered the true heart of the St. Germain des Pres area, the very center of Paris with so much activity at your doorstep and most sights and attractions within walking distance. This is a bustling market street lined with cafes, vendors and specialty stores, plus of course, bakeries and flower shops. Just step out your building's door and be swept up into the flow of locals going about their shopping and browsing and of course, leisurely people watching....
This is a superbly renovated, large apartment of 80 m2 (about 860 ft2), that is sure to please even demanding guests. Everything has been updated and is lovingly cared for and maintained. A very generous sized living room with 3 large floor to ceiling windows look out over the city and allow in lots of light. The vacation traveler is assured a relaxing and comfortable stay not only by the triple glazed soundproofing windows, but also with the backside location of the main bedroom, which faces the inner courtyard. The bedding is top quality with extra thick mattresses and top quality linens.
As a luxury property for 2 adults: a queen size bed and a full bathroom which allows for more than enough spaciousness for you to relax and enjoy your Parisian adventure.
As an upscale standard property for up to 4 persons: with 2 persons in the living room on two twin size ‘bunk beds’ (2.4 m long by 0.9 m wide - almost 8 feet long by just less than 3 feet wide) which are very comfortable. While suited for most adults, they would probably be most appreciated by children or young adults. These beds are inside a 'closet type' space, which could be thought of as akin to sleeping in a train’s compartment, or the best first class airline beds! They have excellent thick mattresses and each has an individual reading light. There is either a stool or wooden hooked ladder to use to access the upper bunk bed. We do not recommend the upper bunk for anyone with mobility problems to go up or down the wooden ladder or for a young child unless supervised.
The kitchen is open style with a high counter that separates it from the dining table which seats up to 5 adults. It has everything a serious cook needs, or a microwave to just reheat specialty items you purchase at the delis below on rue Buci. Plenty of counter space as well as new cabinetry, counter tops and top quality appliances.
The beautiful wooden parquet floor adds a warm touch to the atmosphere. Period paintings and refined touches grace the apartment throughout. Plenty of closet space is available.
The apartment is located on the 3rd European floor (4th US) stairs only, and is the only apartment on the floor, as this is a small building with few units. The living room faces west and is bathed with lots of sunlight. The bedroom is in the back of the unit, down a short hallway and has plenty of closet space with mirrored closet doors. It has 2 large windows with a top quality queen size bed. The bedroom of this Paris holiday is generous in size, and along with the high ceilings, provides a feeling of spaciousness. Crown molding throughout adorn the ceilings, and strong accent colors like the red living room curtains provide true originality for this Parisian home.
Located on a pedestrian only street bustling with activity, Café Flore and Deux Magots (say ‘Ma-go’) plus many other small cafes are just around the corner, antique shopping on adjacent rue Jacob is wonderful. You are a stone’s throw from the River Seine, Place St. Michel and the Blvd. St. Germain as well. This will be one to write home about and boast to all your friends you have found the ideal luxurious place in the heart of St. Germain and Paris! Oh la la!
We are sure you will thoroughly enjoy this area. If you need more accommodations for more people, please note that we also offer ID #245 in this same is a very popular area!. This is arguably the best area of Paris and this apartment is ideal and perfectly suited for many of our VIP guests!
