A delightful home in fashionable Saint-Germain, you’ll be spoiled for choice with an array of big name retailers, iconic designer labels, café sun-terraces, tiny wine bars, one hundred year old cinemas, and quirky restaurants brimming with lively locals.
This lovely apartment is within one of the classic Haussmann-style apartment buildings for which Paris is famous. Endless rows of beautiful windows with cream shutters and ornate balconies topped by a chic grey attic level, with protruding windows looking out on the busy shoppers below. You can’t help but feel like a local as you open the huge windows to check the progress of your blossoming window boxes and catch your neighbours doing the same.
The heart of this home is the huge living room with three large windows letting the light pour in. Three deep red sofas (one of which opens up as a double sofa-bed) surround the low chunky coffee table making this room naturally social and informal. A varied selection of modern prints and original paintings decorate the walls and brightly coloured accessories add to the convivial atmosphere. This room opens up to the rustic kitchen and dining room. A gorgeous spacious kitchen with all of the tools required to entertain at the dining table with seating for six guests. The kitchen also has a huge window overlooking the street below.
Each of the bedrooms boast large Haussmann style windows and hardwood floors. The master bedroom has a double bed, a beautiful fireplace, a built-in closet, TV (with DVD player) and a chest of drawers. The second bedroom has a single bed, two lovely large windows, TV and a bureau. And the third bedroom has trundle bed and a bureau. Both bathrooms are bright and modern, one has a walk-in shower while the other has a bath tub with shower head.
This beautiful serviced apartment ensures a homely and comfortable stay in the heart of bustling Saint-Germain.
Perfectly placed in the heart of Sparkling Saint-Germain-des-Prés on Paris’ Left Bank (La Rive Gauche). An addictive,lively and colourful part of Paris famed for attracting creative non-conformist types since the 18th Century. When in Paris, indulge in some café culture on the famous sun-terrace of Café de Flore hosting play readings on Monday evenings. Or for a real treat visit Café Laurent on the ground floor of the luxurious Hotel d’Aubbuson said to be a favourite of post-war existentialist hipsters Queneau, Mauriac and Sartre there are jazz concerts and literary events taking place most evenings.
In the evening we love Chez Georges for its diverse crowds and La Compagnie des VinsSurnaturels for its 3,000 strong wine list. Stroll the lengths of Rue de Seine and Rue de Buci for independent art galleries and multicoloured market stalls.
A 10 minute walk to the Seine, Cathédrale Notre-dame de Paris and Musée d’Orsay there is plenty to do and explore on foot. For a pretty walk meander the Carrefour de l’Odéon, a lively square surrounded by cafes with sun-terraces or the Jardin du Luxembourg, a public garden built by Marie de Medicis to replicate her childhood home Florenceís Palazzo Pitti.
However, with Rennes, Saint-Placide and Sèvres-Babylone Metro stations under a mile away connecting you to lines 4 and 10, and 12 if you want to get further afield, it’s easy.
