Paris 5th arrondissement|
Saint Germain - Latin Quarter
This lovely 90 square meter, 3-bedroom apartment is located in the 5th arrondissement, on the 3rd French floor of a 19th century building and sleeps 6 people. This apartment is equipped with a Fire Place (in one of the bedrooms), Washer-dryer combo, Dishwasher, unlimited high speed Internet access, Phone, Stereo, and cable TV. Double-paned windows throughout ensure calm, quiet and abundant light. Hungary point hard-wood floors don the entire apartment, as well as the famous Parisian plaster moldings and the original 19th century paneled doors.
The late 19th century Haussmann-style building is simple and very Parisian, with old wood trimmings throughout and an old wood, but secure elevator. Though the area is extremely safe, the building is still equipped with a security code, and a second door only accessible by a private key.
Difficult to find yourself more centrally located in Paris, as this apartment is just a 5-minute walk from St. Michel (and metro St. Michel), Notre Dame, Latin quarter, the St. Chapelle, Chancellerie and Ile St Louis. Just 5 minutes in the other direction takes you to the Luxembourg gardens and the Sorbonne, meaning the student hustle-bustle abounds with cafés, cinemas and excellent restaurants. Safety is just another advantage of the area, with the main Paris police department also 5 minutes away, as well as the 19th century Dieu hospital. The area is donned with affordable shopping, and for the more ample budgets, St Germain shopping is also 5 minutes away. Of course the basics can also be found in the area: supermarkets, bakeries and drugstores.
The 5 square meter entrance sets the style for the rest of the apartment, with paneled doors leading to every part of the apartment: the bedrooms, the living room, the bathroom. It is chic and light, with high ceilings and Parisian moldings.
The 40 square meter Living room has 3 windows allowing floods of light all day long, with a lovely view of classical boulevard St. Germain, the Cluny museum and Cluny park. Half the room is set up as the living area with a sofa, day bed, chair, coffee table television and stereo. The other half of the room is the dining area with a table that seats 6, lamps and tables.
The separate kitchen has one window facing a courtyard and is equipped with an oven, microwave, gas burners, extractor hood, double-door American fridge with ice and cold water dispenser, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and all kitchen utensils. The room has plenty of cupboard space and a two-tone 1940’s tile flooring.
The master bedroom has a large window facing an open, light courtyard and is contiguous to bedroom two. It is furnished with a large mirrored double wall armoir, a queen-size bed, night tables and lamps. The second bedroom is flooded with light from a large window facing the same open courtyard and is furnished with a double trundle bed that serves as two single beds or one double bed, a fireplace topped by a 19th century mirror, a desk, table, chairs and lamps. It is contiguous to the master bedroom. This room also built-in closets and shelves.
