The Space

At the heart of the Montparnasse neighborhood, a pleasant, newly redone studio apartment for one or two people.

Designed by an interior architect in 2013 ((website hidden)) ; the paints are mineral, lead-free and solvent-free. Located on the 2nd floor (French 1st floor), its double glazed windows look out on a quaint courtyard paved with cobblestones. This heated apartment is furnished with a fully equipped kitchenette with a fridge, a cooktop and a kettle; authentic Parisian bistro table and chairs; a double bed with a comfortable mattress and 100% cotton sheets and pillowcases; a closet fitted with a hanging rod and shelves; an iron and ironing board. The bathroom has shower, sink, toilet as well as heating. Optical fiber wifi.
Lots of public transportation nearby: buses 68 and 91, metro stops Raspail and Edgar Quinet, RER and gare Montparnasse (where the Air France bus from the airport stops; and a half-hour from Versailles). Near the famous brasserie La Coupole, the Fondation Cartier, the Montparnasse cemetery; less than half-a mile from the Luxembourg gardens. Close to numerous shops, a shopping mall, restaurants, creperies, movie theaters, theaters and a municipal pool (and an iceskating rink in the winter). Farmers' market twice a week and arts and crafts market on Sunday. Car and bike (Autolib and Vélib) rental close by.
A serene apartment (email hidden)ly neighborhood. This is a perfect getaway from which to enjoy all that Paris has to offer.

  • My wife and really enjoyed our stay at the Nest and found Rachel and Simon to be wonderful hosts. They were both were kind and helpful. The appartment was very clean. The nest is in an ideal location close to all transport and is only 10 minute walk to Gare Montapanasse (a main transport hub). Also have a market in the same street on Wednesdays and Saturdays with a Art market on Sundays...practically outside the apartment.

  • The studio was the perfect little place to stay while we were in Paris. The neighborhood was quiet, and we were very close to a Metro station, which made it easy to get around the city. There was also a couple of grocery stores nearby, and plenty of great cafes. While the studio itself is small, it really had everything we needed. We loved that it had a window overlooking a small courtyard, which made things peaceful. I would definitely recommend using this studio!

  • Rachel and Simon were flexible and helpful during our trip. They spoke very good english and the place looks exactly as pictured. It's a small place and the bathroom is cramped, but if you were like us you only went to the room to sleep and shower so it wasn't an issue for us.

    Area was quiet and had many great places to eat. This was our first trip to Paris and i wouldn't hesitate to come back here or recommend this place to friends. Thanks Rachel & Simon.

  • The "nest at Montparnasse" is a lovely apartment in a wonderful area.
    The room is not big, but clean and equipped with all comforts! It's easily accessible and you're not depending on the hosts to come in!
    It's a good place to discover the life of an Parisian neighbourhood, also to visit the highlights of the city.
    Rachel and Simon are very friendly and helpful. We appreciate them very much.
    In this "nest" we felt really at home and have greatly enjoyed Paris! Thanks!

  • We didn't get to meet Rachel and Simon, but we were very well cared for. We had a great visit in Paris, and the apartment was everything we hoped for. It is well put together, for a studio, with kitchen items and a comfortable bed. We will definitely look forward to staying in the apartment next time we are in Paris.

  • Our stay at Rachel & Simon's was peaceful and comfortable. We were promptly met by Betty who provided us with all the details needed during our stay. Entering into the apartment with codes was extremely convient. Not having to be dependent on someone to leave the key when we left, plus not having to worry if we left something behind when we closed the door was comforting. Although small the positive aspects of the apartment made up for it.
