Overview

About the property

Fabulous location in the 6th district, one block from the Seine

This lovely one bedroom apartment has been redone to high standards. As it is small, we wanted to create a cozy, romantic, Parisian atmosphere. We've used stripes, warm colors and natural materials such as granit and hardwood floors to create a classic, romantic effect.

Enter the building using the door code and go past the mailboxes through the long hallway with exposed stone walls. The gate at the end of the hallways also opens with a code. Go through the gate and the apartment is the first one on the left. Facing you as you enter the apartment is the striped burgundy colored salon with two comfortable armchairs, a small coffee table, a lighted niche with books, a closet and a portmanteau for hanging.

To the left of the entrance is the fully-equipped kitchen with a granit worktop, an eating area at the end, a refrigerator, combination washer-dryer, small oven, microwave, stovetop, and dishwasher. We've recalled the burgundy color theme with the kitchen cabinets. As we love coffee, you have two choices: the Bodum French Press or the Nespresso maker. There is also a tea kettle. The kitchen is stocked with some basic items for your use: salt, pepper, coffee, sugar, tea, oil and vinegar. There is also high quality Brabantia cookware (which you may not need to use much given the almost overwhelming choice of restaurants in the area!).

Across from the kitchen is the bathroom tiled floor to ceiling with extra large square tiles to create a sense of space and harmony. There is a state of the art, aesthetic water heater (details are important!), Duravit sink and WC, and a large Italian tiled shower with a thermostatic tap. The bathroom was designed for maximum comfort in a small space.

To the left of the living room is the bedroom, the largest room in the apartment. Lighter stripes decorate the walls, and the high wrought iron English bed fits perfectly into the space. We also chose this bed so that you'd have space to store your luggage underneath.

We've also included a small English antique commode and a comfortable two-seater sofa if you'd like a second relaxation area. There is cable TV and Wifi of course, and the bedroom looks out onto a bright courtyard. The thick cotton curtains block out the light even though there isn't much at night, given the fact that the apartment is situated between two courtyards.

The atmosphere of the building is quite friendly and the neighborhood is fantastic. We'll leave a detailed apartment guide in the property, but we'd like to mention the fact that you are really in the heart of “everything”. If you turn left and then right at the end of the street, you find yourself on the rue Guenegaud next to The Seine. Cross over the Pont Neuf bridge and you're on the Right Bank. You're also a few blocks away from the Institut de France, the dome of which you can see when you walk out of the building. We could go on and on about the location.

If you turn right when leaving the apartment and go to the end of the street, you will find yourself on the famous rue de Buci with it's open air market, cafes, shops and such a lively atmosphere of what we call “Le Vieux Paris”. You can also head up a few more meters and hit the Boulevard St. Germain with its cinemas, shops and people-watching cafes..... Continue from there either straight to the chic St. Sulpice area or turn left instead and head towards St. Michel... The possibilities are endless.

We hope to welcome you to our apartment soon!

Lovely flat, amazing location

Great flat and amazing location. The flat is very small and quite dark. The amenities are great and on the doorstep. It was quiet for the most part. The shower was excellent !!

Great location. Just steps away from restaurants, shopping, transportation, and Left Bank sights

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for an adult couple looking to explore Paris upclose. This is not a rental to spent a lot of time in since it is small, but it has all the amenities for a relaxing week long stay. The first floor location is great. If it were on an upper floor you’d have to climb a narrow staircase. The apartment is very, very quiet even when the windows are open. Very secure.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed that you found issues with the rental. Concerning the walkway, there is a light switch on the wall, left. We will ensure that all renters know about this. The linens are professionally laundered by a local company. The launderer does attach adhesives to the bottom corners of the linens, which, once removed, leave slight marks. Our staff has been in the cleaning business for over 20 years and is extremely professional. We will add a second fan, although the one we have is already quite powerful. We take this kind of complaint very seriously, and appreciate your feedback.

Small but amazing location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely well managed small 1 option in the St. Germain area. The bed was comfortable (tucked in a nook so only accessible from 1 side but ok for us) The bedroom was a nice size with a comfy couch. The bathroom was small but very nice shower so worked well. Quiet location off the street which was nice. Only downside no air conditioning and it was unseasonably warm they did have a good fan and when home we could open the windows. Nice stay for 2 nights many thanks!

Map

Car: not necessary

In the heart of St. Germain des Pres, one block from the Seine river and famous restaurants and cafes. One block from the rue de Buci. Walk to the Pont Neuf and the Right Bank in 5 minutes. A mythical, wonderful location in the heart of the 6th district.
