Description of the Paris vacation apartment rental
Make our home in Paris your home in Paris. In the bright and lively fifth arrondissement, home to the Sorbonne, the Jardin des Plantes and the Luxembourg Gardens is a wonderful jewel of an apartment that awaits you as your home away from home. A five minute walk brings you to rue Mouffetard, one of the oldest market streets in Paris. Here you will find a wonderful mix of outdoor fresh food stands, cheese, bread, wine and food shops and wonderful restaurants.

The apartment is located closest to the Censier/Daubenton metro on line number 7 and is also within a 10 minute walk from the Port Royal stop on the RER B which has a direct train from CDG and Orly Airports (Orly uses a shuttle train to transport passengers to the Antony stop where the RER B is available.)

Nestled on a quiet street, in a quiet interior courtyard, this lovely one bedroom apartment of 42 square meters (450 sq. feet) has all of the conveniences that any traveler could want. One of the first things you notice is how homey and welcoming the owners have made this apartment. That is because, unlike an apartment that has been furnished as a rental unit, the owners of this apartment live here several months a year. They have set it up and furnished it as they would like to live and you as their guests, reap the rewards.

Heated with gas heat, which also provides unlimited hot water, the system’s remote control can be set to give you the perfect temperature for day or night comfort. The thermal insulated double paned windows and door to the garden are designed to help keep the apartment comfortable, no matter what the temperature. Large space saving radiators which insure that heat is evenly and efficiently distributed in all rooms, makes a visit in colder months as much a pleasure as the warmer spring and summer months. In fact, with less crowds to deal with, staying here in the late fall and winter is a delightful way to experience a less crowded Paris.

In the summer, a major plus is an air conditioning unit in the living room, powerful enough to keep the entire apartment comfortable. It is a two part system with the smaller part that keeps you cool on the inside and the larger machinery part on the outside.

Another wonderful thing about this apartment is its lovely private garden. Hedged all around, the space is a private little oasis in which to enjoy an afternoon drink or a pleasant meal. There is a wooden deck with a resin table which seats four comfortably or a smaller round bistro table for more intimate moments. The French door in the living room leads out to this wonderful added attraction.

A separate bedroom, with a large window looking out on your private garden is sunny and bright. Ample closet space, a comfortable double bed, a flat screen TV with BBC and CNN, a telephone with free calls to 139 countries, including the US, DSL WI-FI internet access, this apartment has it all.

High quality linens ensure you will have a great night’s sleep. The living room is spacious with a very comfortable double sized sofa bed, a drop leaf table which seats four very comfortably, plenty of books to read and guide books to inform, a CD-collection for your listening pleasure, a radio/CD/cassette combination with great sound, an i-Pod speaker dock and a wonderful reading light.

In addition to the sofa, there are two incredibly comfortable Phillipe Starck designed chairs so four people can relax in comfort. The coffee table is on wheels and is very easy to maneuver to allow for the opening of the sofa bed. A dramatic glass and iron display unit contains wonderful pieces of glass and pottery collected by the owners. Everywhere you look is the art work of a home that reflects that someone lives here, not some sterile hotel room,

The “American” kitchen has everything one could want to prepare a meal. With all the wonderful markets nearby, we know you’ll be tempted to try your hand at French cooking. But if you don't want to cook there are tons of restaurants nearby and within easy walking distance if the most you want to make is coffee. And we even have three ways to make coffee, a French press, a regular coffee machine and, for those of you who prefer, an espresso maker. A breakfast bar and stools allows for easy dining for 2 people.

A very unique gas, stove, oven and dishwasher (yes, in one unit) takes care of all your cooking and clean-up needs. Plentiful pots, pans, casseroles, spices and cooking utensils are available as well.

The windowed bathroom has everything you would expect and more. Two separate heaters (one electric near the shower, the other, working off the gas unit which heats the apartment,near the toilet) are available to insure you are toasty warm when you emerge from the recently renovated and enlarged tiled shower. With a choice of two shower heads and unlimited hot water, this is great way to unwind after a long day of touring.

With small hotel rooms in Paris around 200 euros and the strength of the euro compared to the dollar, this apartment is a marvelous value. We even offer pick up and drop off to both Paris airports for a reasonable additional charge.

best place ever!

February 24, 2012

This apartment is great. It's in a great location - close to Mouffetard and all of the markets and shops on that charming street. It's close to the metro and bus stops as well, with lots of restaurants closeby. The apartment is very well-equipped and comfortable. Amy, the owner, was so helpful during the rental process. She gave us lots of pre-departure information and answered all of my questions. She even gave us the name of a person we could contact who could pick us up at the airport. The apartment is full of written information, provided by the owners, about places to go and see as well as instructions on how to operate all of the necessary systems. My husband and I stayed there for a week and have made a pact to return in a year and hopefully to stay in the same place again. We recommend this place and these owners enthusiastically!!
