About This Listing
A very nice apartment that was completely renovated in May 2013 in one of the most fancy' places in Paris.
The apartment is located on the ground floor of a traditional Parisian building in a charming patio.
In the latin district of Paris and in front of the famous "Bon Marche" you will enjoy walking around for some shopping, having lunch in a "Brasserie" or taking a nap in the "Parc du Luxembourg" 3 minutes away.
The districts of Saint Germain, Odeon and Saint Michel are 2 minutes away by foot!
The neighborhood is one of the most fancy in Paris. It is a very good mix of stores, restaurants, bars and clubs. You will enjoy the arquitecture and above all the real "Parisian living style".
Right across the street, there are 2 metro lines (lines 10 & 12) and a dozen bus lines. You will be able to travel very easily all around Paris.
But do not forget : the best way to visit Paris is by bike! The city provides you "Velib" (our rental bike program in Paris) to move all around the city. There are Velib stations all around Paris and it is really cheap!

The apartment is a 2 minute walk to the metro, although is also walking distance to all the major sites. Although we did not meet Benoit, his housekeeper was very friendly (despite not speaking English) and the apartment was extremely clean and neat when we arrived. Would definitely recommend this apartment to others who are looking for a getaway in Paris!
Ben has been a great host! Very accommodating! The location is great very near the metro and bon marche is just across the street! :)
Benoit had everything setup as described in his posting. The apartment is clean and located in a real safe location. This was our first experience with Airbnb. We loved our stay at this location. It is centrally located and convenient for walking to all major Paris attractions. We will definitely repeat our stay at this location. Thank you Benoit!
Benoit's place was absolutely great. Incredible location and really easy check-in process. Ben was easy and reliable to contact and the apartment was faultless. Would definitely stay again- thankyou!
Ben's apartment is great. Fantastic location, right in the heart of Saint Germain de pres. You can walk to many locations like a fifteen minute walk to the Louvre. Or you can take trains to others, including one right to the Eiffel Tower and another to Montramarte. Hundreds of shops and cafes in the immediate area. Beautiful courtyard entry. A little tight. Best for a couple. Washing machine but no drier. Amazing rain shower that was so refreshing after a long day of sightseeing.
