|Minimum Stay||6 nights|
We offer a comfortable and spacious duplex in a clean 19th century building over-looking the streets of Paris. We are situated in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, near the famous Bon Marché.
Our recently renovated apartment is spacious and clean with many windows for sunlight to shine in through-out the day. We are on the 4th floor with an elevator. Our double glazed-windows give off onto a quiet street and onto a lovely little court yard where french artists go to work in the art atelier.
We have a fully equipped Kitchen along with WIFI, Television and all amenities you will require. We also offer fresh linens and towels and our house-keeper comes to clean the apartment once a week.
We are with-in walking distance from many lovely farmers-markets and luxurious fashion stores. We are near many well-know monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, the Notre-dame Cathedral, and the Invalides where Napoleon is buried.
We are a 10 minute walk from the famous Café de Flore and Brasserie Lipp where Hemingway, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald and Picasso used to spend their evenings.
We offer advice and tips on tours and fun places to go during your trip. We hope to make your Parisian experience as wonderful and memorable as can be!
This was our first time renting an apartment for vacation. We wanted to experience Paris in an apartment vs. a hotel and have more space than a hotel in the same arrondissement would provide. The neighborhood is lively during the day and quiet at night.
Everything we needed was within a block: several grocery stores, bakery, wine shops, cafés, post office, two subway stops, butcher, specialty cake shop with macaroons, bookstore, etc. Wonderful neighborhood!!
The apartment was clean and bright and had all the things we needed to cook at home and be comfortable. The full-sized refrigerator and washer/dryer were wonderful. The loft bed and nook on the stairway made the apartment especially unique for children. We could see the dome of Les Invalides from the top window. We were able to get to all the major landmarks quickly and easily.
We would likely stay here again when we return to Paris.
This flat is well-situated for exploring Paris. Duroc Metro station is nearby, many grocery stores are within walking distance, plus some well-reviewed restaurants (Restaurant Joséphine Chez Dumonet). The apartment is stocked with all you need to cook in, too. The AC was appreciated during the warm August afternoons, the beds comfortable, the decor pleasant. Owner Charlotte was a joy to work with, both via email and phone. Highly recommend, and we look forward to returning one day.
We arrived at the apt. around 3p.m., which has an small elevator for two people, or you can walk up the winding staircase. We were not met by anyone, but the gentleman downstairs helped us, then Charlotte's father showed up, putting in new light bulbs. Tiffany, an assistant, came some later and I showed her that the bed chesterfield was covered in hair, and had not been cleaned or vacuumed. The clothes washer/drier was running and we eventually took the wet clothes out and placed them around the room to dry, since there was a burning smell. I think it was overloaded. Since we couldn't figure out the washer/drier, we had to go to the laundromat, which is close by. In the week we were there, we asked to have the safe fixed or new key, which we never got, toaster didn't work and not replaced. Television went out 3 three times, fixed once. One night, Tiffany said she would come over to fix the tv, but that was close to 9 p.m. at which time, we were headed to bed, after a tiring day.
We enjoyed the apt. and where it was located, but I feel all the things that should have been fixed in a short time, were not fixed at all. Nice restaurants, and grocery stores close by.
Appartement très bien situé et très bien agencé. Accueil très chaleureux, cependant malgré tous leurs efforts, les propriétaires n'ont pas réussi à résoudre un problème de bruit dans le mur de la chambre, nous empêchant quasiment de dormir la première semaine. Diverses interventions techniques ont permis de sensiblement diminuer le bruit pour la 2eme partie du séjour; Si ce problème n'est malheureusement pas définitivement résolu, cet appartement risque de perdre tout son charme.
This is a very nice apartment, clean, well lit, very quiet at night. Beds and linens are comfy. A suggestion... a dresser with 4 drawers to store your clothes under the steps going up to the loft would be a plus. You can find everything you want at about 5-10 minutes walk. We were warmly welcomed by Tiffany and she was easy to reach when our holiday was over. Definitely we'll be back.
Our family of four had a wonderful week long stay. Charlotte and Tiffani were responsive and helpful before and during our stay. The apartment is bright and spacious with large windows and a skylight. The kitchen, living room (with a pull out couch/bed), and toilets are on the main floor; upstairs is a lovely bedroom with a loft above with twin beds; the bathroom with a shower/tub and sink are on the second floor. The apartment is comfortable, well-organized and well-stocked (from a hair dryer to laundry detergent to wifi and a dishwasher). The kitchen was great and we were able to cook at home almost every evening.
The apartment is in a great location, five minutes walk from the Duroc (lines 10 and 13) and Falguiere (line 12) metro station and several bus lines. We took transit everywhere - the #92 bus goes to the Arc de Triomphe and the #89 through Saint Germain and the Latin Quarter. The metro is fast and easy - we went to Montmartre, Pere Lachaise Cemetery, St. Marin Canal... On our last night, we attended a soccer game - the metro gets you there door-to-door in about 35 minutes.
In the neighborhood, we bought our daily baguette at the Eric Kayser bakery around the corner and groceries from Carrefour just a few minutes away. (There are also lots of smaller food stores such as the Quatrehomme fromagerie close by and the Grand Epicerie of the Bon Marche is about a 10 minute walk). The Avenue Saxe outdoor market (Thursdays and Saturdays) has a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower. It's about a 25 minute walk to the river with Notre Dame and Saint-Chapelle. Luxembourg Gardens are also a short walk away and really wonderful.
