Beautiful romantic luxury self-catering apartment, St Germain des prés



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Sleeps 5, Minutes from the Louvre, ideally situated for restaurants

Beautiful, large (1238 square feet) comfortable and quiet apartment in one of the historic buildings available for holiday rental all year round. Right in the heart of St Germain des Près where stars and artists can be seen drinking coffee at the café de Flore or La Palette, the apartment is located minutes from the Pont des Arts, the musée d'Orsay and the Louvre, the flat is ideally situated to explore Paris and enjoy its night life. The street is packed with Art Galleries, lovely cafés and an open air market just a few minutes up the road.

The building itself dates back to 17th century, hence the exposed beams and the open fire place. If you are after the historic Paris you will not be disappointed.

The flat is very light and spacious with a wealth of accessories: Cable TV and ultra fast Internet connection, WIFI and the bonus of FREE telephone calls.

Our Property Manager is reachable 24/7 by phone and his assistant will be happy to help you with basic concierge services like restaurant suggestions, planning a day trip outside Paris, organising a babysitter for an evening and so much more.

Parking being one of the hardest thing in the area, our covered car parking space can also be used. SORRY NO YOUNG CHILDREN.

Listed Building: The flat is located on the 3rd floor (American 4th) of a lovely 17th century listed building. Georges Sand (Chopin's love) lived there. It is accessed via a beautiful secluded courtyard and a lift. Although the area is very lively, the flat itself is very quiet. Because the flat is on the third floor with 7 windows in the main living area, it is very light and feels very spacious.

The area: Rue de Seine is packed with amazing art galleries, little cafes such as La Palette or Le bar du Marché as well as interesting little shops. It is both convenient to visit all the most famous Paris sites as well as enjoy its night life . Only minutes from the Louvre (just need to cross the Pont des Arts), the Musée d'Orsay and Notre Dame. You will be able to enjoy sitting at the Terrace of the Café de Flore or the Deux Magots and watch Parisian life go by.

If you like going to markets, Rue de Seine has a little one which offers delicious fruit and veg and many deli produce.

Going out in the evening will be so easy, between Conran's L'Alcazar and other buzzing restaurants, the choice is yours but one of our favourites is Fish. Be sure however to book it in advance.

Family of Four

We have stayed at many apartments in Paris and this is our favorite. We stayed there 3 weeks. First week with my mother who is 80 years old and the apartment was well suited for her. The neighborhood is fantastic and the apartment is elegant, quiet (it faces a pretty courtyard) and we felt we were in Paris even inside. It is located in the center of the 6th, you are a stone's throw from the Louvre, Blvd. St Germain, etc. We stayed with our daughter and her friend, both 15, and felt completely safe with their being out and about. Near outdoor markets, shops and transportation, there is no better location in Paris (I lived in Paris for two years). The rooms are light and airy, the decoration is soothing, and the TV and internet worked perfectly. The kitchen is very well equipped and we had some very good meals when we didn't want to eat out. The outdoor market ,supermarket, butcher, boulangerie cheese and wine store store nearby made our stay so pleasant and really Parisian. The reception upon arrival was excellent. We can't say enough good things about this rental and hope to be able to stay there again soon.

The apartment was absolutely perfect. Very comfortable for 4 people, and in a great location. Close to excellent restaurants, quaint art galleries and well-stocked markets.

I will rent this apartment again on my next visit to Paris. Thank you to Suzan for your transportation assistance! Everyone and everything was perfect!!!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very spacious, clean, and well appointed. It was located on a very quiet street and overlooked a beautiful courtyard. It was conveniently located near several restaurants, shopping, the Seine, and the Louvre. We had a fun time trying out the different pastry shops and eateries in the neighborhood. We had a little problem that we called the manager about and it was resolved right away. We stayed there for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. I would definitely go back to this place if I was in Paris again.

The perfect Paris apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Paris and loved this apartment located in St. Germain. The apartment is beautiful - with a simple and stylish decor - with plenty of room and amenities for our family of five. The building and courtyard are very quiet, yet surrounded by incredible restaurants, shops, and art galleries and is only a short walk from the Seine. It is an easy walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Musée d'Orsay, but we also walked through the city to the Eiffel tower (along the Seine). Or you can walk a bit south to Luxembourg Gardens which has plenty of outdoor areas to run and play (great for kids!). Cabs and public transportation are easily accessible for other outings - we found the location to be ideal! We highly recommend this property and hope to return soon!

Le meilleur (the best!)

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in the 6th. Brisk walks to everything important to see for first time visitors. Metro stations within easy reach. Spacious and comfortable . Loved the neighborhood cafes on the Friday night we were there. I will be back! My only hesitation on this review is that the place will become too popular and I won't be able to book!!
