Saint-Germain-des-Prés can trace its history right back to the 6th century. The Benedictine Abbey of St-Germain-des-Prés is the oldest church in Paris and contains the tomb of Rene Descartes. In the 19th century it became a haunt for artists like Manet and writers such as Georges Sand and Balzac, giving the area its artistic and intellectual reputation. In the years after World War II, Saint-Germain-des-Prés became a hot bed of new philosophy, avant-garde theatre, art and music. Sartre, Picasso, Beckett and De Beauvoir all frequented the area.

Latest reviews for places in Paris-Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Great location -apartment is super tiny.Sasha reviewed Studio St Germain Terrasse in Saint-Germain-des-Prés
The superb location of the apartment together with its comfortable instalations made our stay in Paris a wonderful time. Silent neighbourhood, but very close to the heart of Saint Germain. I would only suggest to improve the quality of bed linens, pillows and towels. Some basic food in the fridge such as water, cofee, sugar, fruits would be so kind to the guest. In general aspects I highly recomend this apartment.Adriana reviewed Saint-Germain in Saint-Germain-des-Prés
