1bed/1bath apartment in 6th arrondissement, Paris


When

April 24-May 1, 2010, 1 week

Location

In Paris, 6th arrondissement, Rue Madame apartment, an excellent location for walking in Paris. Five minutes from the bustle of Saint-Germain, the Metro stops, and the beauty of Jardin du Luxembourg. This is definitely the area to stay in in Paris for a local feel and atmosphere yet within an easy walk to the famous boulevards, museums and churches.

Nearby Amenities

On the same block or within a block there are great shops and restaurants for all that you need to enjoy Paris(verger, wine, patisserie, cafe, restaurants, etc.).

The House/Apartment

Interesting character in this top floor (sixth floor) apartment with high ceilings, exposed beams, tall windows and an outlook overlooking the Parisian roof tops and street. A very quiet building as the main room looks over the inner courtyard. You can use the elevator but we preferred the circular staircase with the stained glass windows at each landing.

Garden

No balcony but the large windows opened on two sides of the apartment (bedroom and living room/kitchen).

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Small dining table suitable for two; several large and comfortable sofas - lots of cushions so very good for relaxing after long walks in Paris.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

We preferred sleeping on the queen-size sofa bed in the living room as it was a hot week (record temps for April) so the bedroom a little small and warm for the two of us.

Kitchen

Very functional and complete kitchen including a washer-dryer! Go to the Parisian markets and enjoy your meals at home for sure.

Problems or Bonuses

Delightful views across the Parisian roof tops. Excellent large shower.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We were well looked after by Parry as we made arrangements beforehand and by the agent, Laurent, who met us at the apartment.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes, I would stay here again. I hope the apartment - which is delightful in its colours and decor - is kept up well and continues to be an enjoyable place for experiencing Paris.

Things to do in this area

Shop at the verger across the street for fresh fruits and vegetables and go to the wine & cheese store one block away for helpful and delicious products. Have coffee at the cafe across from Saint Sulpice and go to the "Restaurant" for delicious Parisian dinner in a relaxed setting (but go after eight as that's when it opens!).
