Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4) 2 king beds or 4 single beds.

Within a short walking distance to many of the main sights of central Paris such as the Musée D’Orsay, the river walk (Berges de Seine) the Champs Elysees, St. Germain-des-Prés and the Bon Marché department store with its Grand Epicerie. In the shadows of the nineteenth century neo-Gothic style church of Sainte Clotilde, you’ll find this truly quintessential Parisian apartment. A collection of stunning antiques and French fabrics give this apartment the charm of a local’s touch, a unique place that feels like a home. It’s perfect for a business traveler, a group of ladies who want to discover Paris, or for 1 or 2 couples who want a romantic get-away in the city center.

The 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment is ideally situated just off rue St. Dominique, close to the corner of Boulevard St. Germain. Each room has a king size bed that can be separated into 2 singles. There is an ensuite bathroom connected to each bedroom. The kitchen is large & fully equipped for cooking a fabulous meal. Free wifi & free calls to North America as well as a printer for your boarding passes or train tickets.

The beautiful Left Bank 7th district abounds with 18th & 19th century private mansions mostly occupied by high government officials & Ministers that keep this neighborhood safe and rather quiet. It boasts of great boutique shopping , and has some of the best restaurants (Arpège, Les Climats, Café Constant, etc.) & museums (D'Orsay, Rodin, Musée Maillol)

The apartment is in a gorgeous stone building that has 2 security doors. The entryway is filled with books to enjoy about France along with art books that give it an old world charm. The half bathroom is accessible from the entrance hall.

Straight from the entryway you’ll see the magnificent view of the church Sainte Clotilde from the large windows in the elegant living area. The artful blend of modern upholstery with fine antiques in this spacious room will call you to stay a while because it feels like a home away from home. This large room has 2 sitting areas separated by a large leather top desk where you’ll find maps of Paris to plan your daily journeys. Next to the fireplace is an entertainment center with large TV with access to English speaking channels including CNN and CNBC. There is wireless internet (wifi) available throughout the apartment and a state of the art Bang et Olufsen stereo system.

The spacious, fully equipped château-style kitchen is just off the living area with a dining table & 6 chairs. There is an American coffee maker and a Nespresso machine for making morning coffee. There is a large American-style refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, dishwasher & washer and dryer. Plus pots, dishes, flatware, and all the modern amenities and comforts just like home. There is no shortage of wonderful cooking utensils, elegant dinnerware and glassware. We encourage you to use all this and our china and crystal on top of our fine table linens for creating your own Paris experience.

The cozy first bedroom just off the living area faces away from the street. The king size bed can be separated into 2 single beds. Store your luggage in the mirrored built-in closets. The en-suite bathroom has a shower and sink with cabinets to store your powder room essentials. (Toilet is separate)

The comfortable master bedroom is just off the end of the living room and faces the small street. It has a king size bed that can be separated into 2 singles. Large built in closets provide storage as well as plenty of space to unpack. There is a little desk next to the bed where you can write your personal postcards to send back to friends and family or to make changes on your itinerary. The ensuite bathroom has a tub and a sink and toilet with a marble countertop & cabinets for to store your essentials. The bedroom windows are decorated with gorgeous curtains to black out the light to ensure a quiet night’s rest, though this little street is very calm day or night.

This is truly an exceptional apartment to call yours for your vacation in Paris, nothing like other rental apartments that are all white & furnished with iKea! Everything here is like what you would expect in this fabulous, well located district in the City of Light.

Housekeeping service optional.

Optional services:

A chef to prepare the perfect French dinner

A French professor to give you lessons on how to shop & to order in a restaurant

About Owner

I have lived and worked in Paris most of my life & I have retired to the beautiful countryside of France not far from Paris. This apartment was my home for many years.

The Greeter enjoys meeting the clients and highlighting the best of Paris. They will greet you, show you the apartment as well as talk about this neighborhood so that you have a good idea about all the good places nearby. They respond very quickly and are available during your stay.

Our clients have been very pleased with their stay & I'm sure you will be too.

What makes this apartment unique

My apartment is located in the quiet area of the 7th arrondissement, but it's within walking distance to the most interesting places to visit and shop in St. Germain des Pres.

Beautiful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented apts in Europe most every year for the past ten years. This experience was by far the best on every level. Initial communication and throughout was always responsive and easy, also arranged through Jenn to have driver pick us up at airport and deliver on return-such a pleasure. The apt is exquisitely appointed, comfortable and clean. There is a great whirlpool tub in master bathroom for soaking after a day of walking. It is in an excellent location-very safe/clean/quiet neighborhood, near metro and market. Nice to have a cleaning lady visit halfway through our 10 day stay as part of cost. Also nice to have some basic starter provisions on hand. Would do the trip all over again the same way! Thank you Jenn!!

Absolutely splendid

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this apartment this past week and it was absolutely splendid. The apartment is excellent, perfectly furnished, and perfectly located. Outside is a beautiful Gothic church, there is a grocery store literally next door, and to splendid cafés at the end of the block. The owner, Jenn, Is accommodating and responsive, and a pleasure to work with. She arranged transportation both to and from the airport, and the driver made sure to point out highlights along the way. Jernn's assistant Amber, who met us at the apartment to show us around, gave us a quick tour of the neighborhood and helped us locate places where we could get groceries and pharmacy stuff. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough.

Great location and lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Paris and having such a nice place made the visit even better. It is roomy, quiet and comfortable which is very nice after the bustle and noise of a day in Paris. It is easy to access the metro as well as several great attractions. The Musee d'Orsay, Napoleon's Tomb, the Rodin Museum and others are just a short

walk. We didn't get to meet Jenn, but her friend Catherine was there to greet us and give us suggestions. This apartment is so much better than a hotel and I recommend it highly.

Lovely and comfortable home base in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as pictured- spacious, comfortable and sunny, with a lovely view of Sainte-Clotilde from the large front windows. Our family of four found it to be a perfect spot from which to explore central Paris- museums, shops, and the Seine are all a short walk away(as is the metro). The large eat-in kitchen was well equipped and we loved relaxing in comfort in the living room after a long day of rambling around this beautiful city. We'd happily return here. Thank you, Jennifer for making the arrangements and check-in hassle-free.
