About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Located on a small side street just off Boulevard St. Germain in the highly desirable 6th arrondissement, this lovely apartment is simply ideal for a large family or two couples with children.

The elegant and well appointed space is framed by original wainscoting, parquet floors, and lofty ceilings with exposed wood beams. Grand French windows and decorative marble fireplaces in nearly every room further enhance the sophisticated décor. With over 1,000 square feet and three bedrooms, guests have plenty of room to sprawl out and make themselves at home.

The flat is reached by two flights of stairs to the French second, American third floor. In the entry there is access to a full bathroom with shower and laundry facilities. One of the two main bedrooms is also accessed from the entry. The room is tastefully furnished, with two twin beds arranged side by side. Large windows overlook Rue Serpente below. Private en-suite bathroom is equipped with a shower, sink, bidet and toilet. A second bedroom, also accessed from the entry, is better suited to children, with two twin beds in a sleeping loft above a charming sitting area. Windows overlook a central courtyard.

There is another loft with two mattresses on the floor perfect for children.

The apartment then opens to the main living area, with adjacent dining room and kitchen facilities. On the far side of the room, a large sofa faces a fireplace and flat-screen TV. Behind the sofa is a generous dining table that seats up to eight. The kitchen, cleverly built into the wall, is equipped with all modern appliances including a dishwasher, American-style refrigerator with freezer, flat electric cooktop, and conventional oven.

The third bedroom is located off the livingroom, and overlooks the inner courtyard of the building. Like the other main bedroom, it is furnished with two single beds set up side by side. Ensuite bath has a claw-foot tub with hand held shower, toilet, bidet and washbasin.

An extra sleeping loft with two floor mattresses is available upon request.

General amenities include WiFi and cable TV. Top quality linens provided.

Rue Serpente is located in the bustling and elegant St. Germain neighborhood, near the covered market Marché St. Germain and the Boulevard St. Michel. Here there are numerous cafés, boutiques, restaurants, renowned pâtisseries and chocolate shops. It’s a pleasant short walk to the Jardin du Luxembourg, a famous sixty-acre park in the heart of the left bank. Near the Luxembourg Palace, there is a large octagonal pool, formal terraces, and broad paths lined with statues. Musée d'Orsay, Musée Rodin, Notre Dame de Paris, La Sainte Chapelle, and Île St. Louis are easily accessible. Across Pont des Arts or Pont Neuf, you'll reach Le Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries.

Great location, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment location was wonderful. While he Odeon metro was less than a block away we walked to most attractions as there was not much that was more than 2 miles away and the water taxis are close by as well making it easy to get around and there were plenty of great dining options close by.

The apartment lovely. It was super clean and accommodated our group well. As a group of 8 women visiting the city for the first time, Claudette and Vincent could not have been more helpful and responsive to our questions and needs. They provided plenty of linens for the group and were kind enough to provide some snacks and items for the fridge. We were very pleased with our experience overall.

Thank you for the hospitality and we look forward to visiting again.

Gorgeous and superbly located

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have found a better location for 2 grandparents with 2 grandchildren and their parents. While beautiful, the apartment needs some maintenance. The door handle fell off in the children's area when we arrived, the bathtub had a leak, the dishwasher wouldn't function. The washer/dryer is really not functional for doing children's laundry and the towel rack would not turn on. There was very little drawer space. We had intended to entertain some friends there for a catered dinner but went out instead since it was too difficult to manage the kitchen. The concierge was very attentive, gracious and kind. Had we not had numerous maintenance issues I would give the apartment five stars.
