A serene oasis on a quiet street of the lively neighborhood of Quartier Latin, steps away from Rue Mouffetard, the Paris Mosque, Gare d'Austerlitz and Jardin des Plantes.
A bright, light-bathed apartment on a street with very little traffic, in a typical French building, recently renovated, a very bright one-bedroom with an open kitchen and a bathroom.
There is a double bed in the bedroom with fresh linens. Nice and quiet, close the blinds and the blackout curtains, turn on the fan if hot, and sleep well after your intense days around Paris!
The living room is bright, with a couch that turns into a double sofa bed with a real mattress (also blinds and blackout curtains here). Some closet space with hangers at the entrance. Cable TV. There is a table for four persons; plates, cups, bowls and glasses obviously provided.
The kitchen is open and has everything necessary - a big fridge, a stove, an oven, a microwave, a dishwasher, a water kettle for your tea, a French press for your coffee... Coffee itself, tea, oil, salt & co. also there for you to use! This is also where you'll find the washer/dryer.
The bathroom has a window; there is a shower, a sink and a toilet. A hair dryer and the essentials (shampoo, etc.) as well as clean towels are provided.
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT are flexible and depend only on whether there is someone booked immediately before or after you. There is almost always a possibility to leave your luggage if you arrive early or depart late. Please note though that it's an additional €20 if I have to meet you or see you off before 9am or after 9pm.
CLEANING: I do NOT CHARGE a cleaning fee like most, but I DO EXPECT you to leave the place clean with trash taken out - for most people, the little effort of being a decent person is worth saving €40-50 generally charged for cleaning.
***Interaction with Guests
I am generally around and happy to answer any questions you might have during your stay and provide tourist tips and such. Please let me know if I can help, and - welcome to Paris!
Fabulously located in the notorious Latin Quarter with the lively Rue Mouffetard featuring a great variety of restaurants with authentic cuisines from all over the world at different price levels, great for everyone from students to sophisticated travelers, and the famous Sunday market with music and dancing. Get some artisanal cheese and wine to take home at one of the many local shops here!
I have a few guidebooks that you are welcome to use to figure out what you want to see, and here is what you can do in the immediate vicinity:
Lovely picnic enjoying sunshine at Jardin des Plants or along the Seine? You got a farmer's market on the nearby (7 min) Place Monge several times a week for all your picnic needs! The Paris Mosque with a lovely cafe to take a breather with a mint tea and Oriental sweets is 5 minutes away. Jardin des Plantes and the Museum of Natural History - 5 minutes. Gare D'Austerlitz 8 minutes walking, the Cathedral of Saint-Michel de Notre Dame - 20 minutes on foot. If you want to walk to the Louvre - it's 40 minutes, but only 25 minutes by subway without changing. Oh - the Sorbonne, one of the most renowned European universities, is also here in this arrondissement within minutes on foot! Very convenient to get to Versailles as the RER that goes there is within minutes walking!
Get your fresh baguette and croissants at one of the nearby boulangeries - the closest one is 2 minutes away. Not to mention supermarkets and little shops for anything and everything you might need, and the transportation (metro, buses, RER & some regional and long-distance trains) all within 2-8 minute radius, very convenient.
A number of subway, RER, bus and train options all within 2-10 minutes of walking! Very easy to get to from and to both airports - happy to provide exact directions. There are also several Velib stations within a few steps - you can rent a bike for a day for only €1,70 - refer to the Velib website for FAQs.
