We chose this apartment based on the location and it really just can't be beat! It is conveniently located less than a block from Rue de Buci, where we hit the bakeries and fruit stand in the morning and the cheese stand and wine shop on our way home at the end of a busy day. The Louvre and Notre Dame are about a 10 minute walk across the river, the Musee D'Orsay about a 20 minute walk. The metro is just over 5 minutes. The apartment itself is not big, but was perfect for our family of 4 and was accurately described. The kids each had their own daybed, which doubled as sofas. The kitchen (small but functional) and bath seemed to have been updated in the past few years. The apartment has lots of guide books and restaurant recommendations from previous travelers to peruse through. The wifi was great for planning out the next day's activities. Sabine, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and responded quickly to our questions. She made renting our first apartment a breeze! We have already booked a return visit! Read more

Have a nice summer!

Wonderful stay in Paris
We are a family of 4 with 2 kids (ages 7 and 10). Sabine was wonderful to work with from the moment we reserved the apartment. She kept in contact and made sure all the details were in place so we could connect on our arrival. She even was patient when our metro ride from the airport took longer than expected.
The apartment is absolutely wonderful. Nice size, central location, wonderful neighborhood. It was so nice to have a place to have a light dinner at the end of a long day of sightseeing. The beds were comfortable; the bathroom and kitchen had everything we needed; the beds in the living room were perfect for our kids.
Sabine made us feel welcome, spoke excellent English, gave a great overview of how to get around, and shared options for places to go for meals. She had a bunch of brochures and resources in the apartment to consult. She even arranged a taxi for us for the day of our departure (despite being out of town herself). We had a wonderful experience with Sabine and highly recommend this apartment. Read more

Thank you Laura!
I was really glad to meet you and your family!
Hope to meet you again some day in the future.
Great location for Paris visit
We had good experience at this location and Sabine was extremely helpful with reservations, check-in and information about the local area.
We were in Paris in cool and windy weather and the apartment was very comfortable. The location is wonderful with restaurants, markets, general shopping and the metro.
Sabine was very helpful beginning with the request to rent thru all the stay. She reserved a taxi for our trip to the train station at departure.
The entire process working with her was very good. Read more

Thank you John for this king feed back!
I hope alll your family felt at home in my brother's place and I hope you'll be bak some day!
Delightful even if it weren't in the perfect location: which it
This place is lovely. The location is perfect for all the social and cultural delights of St Germain des Près, but it's also a gorgeous, light filled and perfectly appointed appartment. It's incredibly quiet and peaceful in the courtyard and Sabine is incredibly attentive and helpful. I'd normally say the value was only average, but come on: for a flat in this location, with this gorgeous atmosphere, it's worth every cent. Read more
Response from Sabine - 03/21/2014
Thank you Lewis!
Your stay was too short, so you need to come back!
La localización del apartamento es perfecta, tiene todo lo que puedas necesitar al lado, incluyendo varios restaurantes y boulangeries de moda. Permite ir andando a muchos de los principales puntos de la ciudad.
El apartamento es perfecto para 4, pero pueden caber hasta 5. Es un primer piso, con mucha luz y ventanas, perfectamente amueblado y acondicionado y lo que es más importante muy limpio. La única pega que pueden encontrar algunas personas es la escalera para subir al primer piso, es un tramo corto de una escalera un poco vieja y desvencijada pero limpia, con mucha luz y sale de un patio privado con una galería de arte que le da un aire bohemio.
La propietaria del apartamento es lo mejor de todo, es encantadora, alegre y dispuesta a facilitarte cualquier información que necesites, en el apartamento tiene varias guías, folletos, tarjetas de restaurantes y muchas más cosas para facilitar tu visita a la ciudad y estancia.
Nosotros fuimos un matrimonio y dos niñas (9 y 7 años) y el quedarnos aquí hizo nuestro viaje mucho más cómodo y agradable que otros viajes que hemos echo en hoteles.
Por supuesto esperamos volver lo antes posible.

Muchas gracias Belen! Me encanta saber que han gustado tanto!
Espero que regresaran pronto!
Un abrazo para toda la familia,
Location couldn't be better
The owner, Sabine Moisan, is very friendly and helpful, offering excellent restaurant suggestions and responding to requests. Her apartment is well located, walking distance to the Seine, and right in the middle of lively night and restaurant life on the Rue de Buci and Odeon. Two good bakeries a stone's throw away. Also close to two subway lines - and two delicious bistros, Le Comptoir and Les Editeurs (try os a moelle with parmesan foam at the former and scallops risotto with mushrooms at the latter).
The apartment itself is located up a flight of antique stairs, overlooking a courtyard, so quiet for an apartment in the midst of action. This is not a luxurious apartment, but compact, comfortable and cozy - and adequately equipped with the basics you'll need. Read more

Perth, Western Australia
Welcoming, charming, central, wonderful host, highly recommend!
My family of four, 2 adults and 2 children (6yrs and 3yrs) have just recently stayed in Sabine's gorgeous apartment (mid Jan) for 3 nights. We were at the end of our 6 week holiday throughout UK, Sweden and Finland and thought we'd finish the trip off in Paris. It was just what we had hoped for, and more. The apartment is very central, with lots of grocery stores, art studios, cafés/restaurants etc, plus within walking distance to lots of major tourist attractions. Walking is the best way to see Paris and we did this even with small children (in winter!), however, we also used the Batobus (sightseeing ferry) to see lots of attractions without making the children walk too far in the cold. Sabine set the tone for our entire stay when she welcomed us with her smiling face and warm, generous nature. She gave us a really thorough tour of the flat, how to use things, gave us a great run down on things that are great to see and do and where to find everything we wanted or needed for our stay. She also lent us a pram for our youngest child, which was a god send! The apartment had everything we needed, it was compact but there was enough room for all of us. The kitchen was fully equipped, the oven is a microwave with oven capability but we really didn't need to use it. There was a dining table and four chairs, complete with a wine rack and bottle of red to welcome us! The wifi was good, no problems there at all. The bathroom is nicely done, smallish but modern and has everything. There is a separate toilet and you can access this and the bathroom either through the living area or through the bedroom. The apartment was very quiet and felt secure. We highly recommend Sabine's apartment to anyone. We have told all our friends and we hope to return one day in the near future. Sabine was a fantastic host and all her communication was excellent, warm and informative...she even followed up with us after we got home! Read more

A proprietária é atenciosa. Fala português e estava nos esperando no horário correto.
Ao chegar, a entrada parece ruim. Mas o apartamengo é muito bem cuidado. Pode-se viver sem depender de restaurantes, o banheiro é bom, há internet e TV a cabo.
O que mais gostei foi a possibilidade de abrigar a família com dois filhos pois é possível dormir na sala. E a localização é ótima. O que menos gostei foi da escada que leva ate o apartamento.
Voltaria. Quando for a Paris de novo, voltarei e recomendo. Read more
Response from Sabine - 02/14/2014
Pois é: a escada vai ser renovada daqui a pouco tempo.
Sera um prazer recebe-los de novo!
72 Mazarine is in a great location. 5 mins from the Seine and on your doorstep you have the quintessential Parisienne experience with lovely boutiques, galleries, restaurants, cafes. Just perfect. We walked to Musee D'Orsay, Pont Neuf even Place de la Concorde. Odeon Metro is a few minutes up the street. Sabine is so helpful and her apartment well heated, lovely and clean. It has everything you need including a wealth of guidebooks, restaurant recommendations and laundry. There's also a small supermarket across the road. We were a family of 4 (kids 10 and 13) so it was rather tight for us but so much better than a hotel room. Great value. Highly recommend. Read more

Salt Lake City, Utah
My husband and I stayed four nights in Sabine's apartment in the middle of October. The apartment was small, yet very functional, and very clean. It was perfect for a couple. The best part was the location. I could not have been any better! We were less than a minute away from several great dining options and about a 10-15 minute walk for Luxembourg Gardens, Louve, Notre Dame and more.
The only complaints would be that I wish I would been more clear on understanding how to use the washer/dryer combo. While Sabine explained it to me, we couldn't figure out how to use the dryer. I think the lack of sleep from traveling may have gotten to me. Also, the bed is small (for american standards), but we knew that when we rented the apartment. We were so tired after long days exploring Paris, that we slept fine =) Lastly, I would have liked to have a couple more bath towels (there was 2).
Overall the apartment was exactly what I expected, but the location was even better. We loved all of the restaurants and bars being so close and the crowd was mostly a hip late 20's to 50's crowd. It wasn't young, but far from old and boring. I would 100% stay here again. Now I just need to plan another trip to Paris! Read more
Response from Sabine - 11/20/2013
Thank you Heidi!
I am sorry to hear you met some problems to use the dryer. I understand that with the jetlag, it is sometimes hard to remember all my explainations!
Hope to meet you again.
From the moment we arrived at Sabine's apartment it felt like home! She genourously explained the workings of the appliances and advised us on where the nearest supermarket was etc. You are very close to Rue de Buci with its hustle and bustle and great bakeries and delicatessen's but once you are back in the apartment all is quiet and peaceful. Great location for seeing all the sights mostly all walkable but Metro or Batobus all nearby. We had a lovely week really enjoyed the Musee Rodin andwould like to come back sometime. Thanks Sabine Read more
Response from Sabine - 11/14/2013
Thank you so much Louise! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay in Paris and in my apartment.
I hope you'll come back soon with your nice family!
Choose this one!!! Perfect host, apartment and location!
Sabine is a pure delight. My friend was ill with the flu and Sabine called around to find out which pharmacy was open on a Sunday for her. And later we found out she went to the pharmacy ahead of us to tell them in French that she was coming. The apartment is extremely homely. It is only one short flight of stairs up which was ideal with luggage. We saw other travelers struggle to get to higher apartments. Sabine also went through how to operate all the different appliances like the washing machine. Which worked a treat and was welcomed after many weeks traveling prior. And also has a local map of all the best places to go to markets or dinner ect. Perfect location. Easy to get to many sights by walking. Right in the heart of great dining and chocolate shops. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Read more
Response from Sabine - 09/26/2013
I am happy you had a good time in my apartment, though Jade's flu!
Thank you very much for the flowers and chocolates!
I recently stayed in Sabine's apartment with my mum. We had lots of correspondence with Sabine before arriving, and on arrival, Sabine was full of information. It's located in an ideal location and we walked everywhere. Within 2 blocks there is a large supermarket, 3 patisseries and numerous restaurants, including a fabulous creperie just around the corner. It is a compact apartment, but has everything you need. Would I recommend it to friends: Yes, and I already have. Would I stay here again: Definitely. I have already said this to Sabine. Looking forward to seeing you again Sabine. Read more
Response from Sabine - 09/18/2013
Nice to hear from you Jo!
Thank you for the review and waiting to meeting you again!
Best wishes, Sabine
Just what we wanted
An excellent one bedroom apartment located right where we wanted in St Germain Des Pres. Five minutes walk from "Odeon" metro, 10 from St Michel, 15 from Notre Dame, & 20 from Le Louvre. Mabillon & St Germain Des Pres metro stations aren't far away, and many bus routes traverse the nearby streets. Excellent restaurants and other eateries (including a supermarket) are less than 200 metres away, although none of these disturbed the tranquillity of the apartment.
To our delight, a big plus was Sabine, the owner , who welcomed us on arrival. We immediately felt "at home" after being shown the facilities including separate toilet, clothes washing machine and also a dishwasher.
Our next visit to Paris will be planned after securing Sabine's OK to enjoy her apartment once more. Read more

Great location, lovely apartment
We loved staying at this apartment and we would recommend it. Sabine is a wonderful host, and she will do what she can to help you with your stay.
The only problem we had is that my husband's luggage did not arrive, and they had a problem delivering it because they did not know the code, and they could not get in to leave the luggage because it was on the weekend. If it was during the week, they could have left it with the gallery that is owned by Sabine's brother. It caused a lot of frustration - so for that reason I thought it is better to stay in a hotel because someone is always there to receive the luggage. But, the apartment was much roomier than a hotel would have been for the same money. Also, it was great to have the kitchen and laundry, which we would not have had in the hotel. We were a bit unlucky with the luggage situation.
Excellent location, kitchen gives option to make meals instead o
We chose this apartment because it was in a central location (we didn't want to have a car in Paris) and we wanted to be able to cook for ourselves some of the time. The location is very central, you can easily walk to major sights such as Notre Dame and the Louvre. It is situated in the St. Germain des Pres area, full of restaurants and shops to explore. Sabine greeted us on arrival, and was extremely helpful. The apartment itself is bright and quiet (despite being steps away from a bustling street). The kitchen was fully stocked with pans, pots, and lots of other things to help in making meals. Recommended.
Clean and Good Location
Very central and convenient to many major sights.
Lots of great restaurants and eats right downstairs.
Very clean and well organized apartment, also the host Sabine is very quick to respond for to all inquiries. Read more

An excellent experience all around. Sabine has a great apartment in a wonderful location. The windows open out to a quiet courtyard and we are steps from grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants. It's an easy walk to the Metro, the Louvre, Luxembourg Gardens and most importantly, the Seine. There was enough room for our family of 4 (boys are 13 and 11) and we felt very much at home here. We enjoy walking and spent every day exploring Paris from this great home base. Sabine, thank you for being such a wonderful host! Read more

We really enjoyed our stay at Sabine's apartment. The apartment was small but was comfortable for our family of four. It was quiet and we felt very safe. The location was really convenient to cafes, groceries and all the sights. It was also very easy to access by transit from the airport. Sabine made it very easy when we arrived which was perfect after a long trip. Highly recommend this apartment! Read more

Thank you Tracey!
Comfortable, safe & secure apartment
My two sisters and I had a wonderful stay at this apartment which was ideally located - close to everything, it felt very safe and secure for 3 single women. The apartment was very comfortable in accommodating the three of us, very well equipped and had many eateries nearby.
Sabine, the landlady, was extremely helpful with directions, suggestions and booking us a taxi to the airport. Corresponding prior to our arrival was great which was very reassuring in us preparing for our stay.
I highly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to be centrally located in the Saint Germain district of Paris, within walking distance to the Seine waterfront, Notre Dame and The Louvre and also very close to the Metro and buses including the Hop On- Hop Off.
Response from Sabine - 07/17/2013
Hope to meet you again!
We enjoyed our recent stay in Paris, and as mature couple with young daughter were very pleased with both the location and comfort level of this apartment. Access to all the must see sights was easy on foot,or by bus/underground. Restaurants/cafes abounded but could also choose to use our kitchen/dining.
A warm welcome from Sabine who was informative both before and on arrival much appreciated. Recommend
Amazing location, comfy and very friendly owner!
We've spent five beautiful days at Sabine's apartment! You'll find everything you may need both in the neighborhood and in the apartment, otherwise Sabine will help you to get it! I highly recommend this property for a confortable and enjoyable stay in París. We should return willingly for our next vacation in París! Read more
Response from Sabine - 06/10/2013
Thank you to both of you!
I'll love to receive you again soon!
All the best for the rest of your trip in Italy!
In the middle of everything!
Just got back from a long girl's weekend in Paris and for the most part my sister and I loved this flat. We shared the full sized bed in the bedroom but there was the option to utilize the trundle beds in the living room. Sabine is a very gracious host and spent the time to make sure we knew how everything worked in the flat and how to get around the area (even though we were running very late!). We're from NY so thought it was funny that she kept apologizing for how small things were, when really we found the flat to be a great size, especially considering it was right in the heart of the city. As others have mentioned, there is literally no street noise. The only negative experience we had was with the upstairs neighbors being very loud. I discussed this with Sabine after the fact (I should have really spoken up when the incidents occurred) and she informed me that the upstairs flat is a short term rental as well and that she was going to get into contact with the owners to make sure that doesn't happen again. So hopefully our aggravation clears the way for the next round. We really loved this flat and would stay here again in heart beat. Read more
Response from Sabine - 06/09/2013
I was so upset with that problem of noise from the upstairs neighbors!!
I contacted the owner and told him that this cannot happen again: he has to warn his guests that this is a QUIET building and no noise disturbance is authorized. He apologized for my guests and promised that will not happen again!
Awesome flat in great St Germain Des Pres area
My husband and I stayed at this lovely flat in March 2013 and had a great stay. The location was excellent, close to all the local attractions and yet still had a neighborhood feel. Great restaurants and night life, yet quiet to sleep at night. Owner Sabine was lovely and answered all our questions. Wifi worked well and a must these days. Close to metro for easy access. Only complaint would be would have been nice to have a proper sofa to relax in, rather than a daybed, after a long day out exploring this great city. Furniture pretty basic and and could have been more comfortable. Not a big deal since you don't come to Paris to stay inside. Would highly recommend!
It was just perfect!
We could not have been more happy with the apartment! It was just perfect! In every little detail, location is wonderful for trasportation, eating out or shopping to eat in. It is very safe and clean. You have thought of every little detail inside that makes it so comfortable and easy to stay here. The beds are comfortable, pillows ample, kitchen has everything one needs and the bathroom set up is excellent! With shower seperate from toilet and two sinks which helps with getting ready in the morning. Washer/dryer, tv, phone, Wifi we needed nothing else! Not to mention all your guidence with getting tickets to museums and sites. Merci Sabine for sharing your lovely flat!
Home away from home-march 2013
We consider ourselves lucky to have found the place. The location is brilliant as the area is most charming and a great departure place for parisian main sites. You can walk almost everywhere or get a quick ride to all of the tourist sites yet you will most definitely feel compelled to explore the immediate souroundings as they are filled with young people, great food and amazing shops and galleries. The apartment is spotless, comfortable and roomy enough to have 3-4 people not feel like they are trapped , wich is what most places you can rent at the price will offer you. It will save you money as you will be able to find everything in it from food gear to wine and condiments kindly supplied by the owner.
Great communication with the owner at all times meant we always felt we had a backup in case something unexpected would happen.
All in all , a great experience that we , as seasoned travelers around Europe ,could reccomend !
Nice flat in central location
I stayed with my husband and 1 1/2 year old in this flat for four nights. It was a very nice flat and the location was great for walking to lots of things. There are metro stations close by as well, but the walking was really convenient! There is a grocery store and some nice shops right around the corner too!
The flat was a very good value for the price and Sabine was extremely nice and helpful. She provided a crib for our baby at no extra cost! Check-in and check-out were very easy.
We had a nice stay in Paris and in this flat.
Perfect location, cute apartment!
This was the perfect place for my friend and I to stay during our 8 day visit to Paris. The location truly could not have been better. Steps from St. Germain, cafe's, shops and delicious restaurants. About a 7 min walk to the Seine River, and 10 min to the Louvre.
The apartment itself was very comfortable, clean, and quiet.
In addition Sabine was the perfect greeting host. She gave great suggestions, handy maps, and a welcome bottle of wine upon our arrival.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Thank you Ashley!
I'm happy you enjoyed and I hope to meet you again.
Nice apartment in a wonderful location
Excellent service provided by Sabine. Very clean. Great location, all services available very close.
Comfortable and very convenient
This one bedroom apartment is ideally situated just 2-3 minutes from Odeon metro station and 5 minutes from St Michel/Notre Dame metro station (on the RER line from Charles de Gaulle airport). It is within 10-15 minutes walk from Notre Dame and The Louvre and about 45-60 minutes from the arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. The apartment and double bedroom are compact but freshly decorated with modern Ikea furniture. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment was very warm and comfortable despite freezing temperatures outside. There is a Japanese restaurant below and a good pizza restaurant a few doors down with many more cafes, restaurants and patisseries in the area. There is a small supermarket opposite and another large one nearby.
Sabine was a pleasure to deal with and provided us with lots of maps, brochures and information about Paris.
A Perfect Place to Stay In Paris
Pictures truly do not do this apartment justice, and it was the perfect place to stay in Paris. It's tucked away on a side street, and once you enter the courtyard, you can hear nay a peep of the outside world. It is perfectly situated with two grocery stores within a 5 minute walk, a subway station within a 5 minute walk, and right off of one of the best shopping and dining roads in Paris in Blvd. St. Germain. The area was safe at all hours of the night and you were able to find food ranging from the cheap to the expensive so there is a wide array of resteraunts to fit your budget.
The apartment is larger than it even looks in the picture. For two people it is larger than what is probably even needed, and for three or 4 I could easily image it still being comfortable. It has such a wonderful feel to it.
The best part though is Sabine. She's so willing to work with you. During our travels our luggage wad delayed and I didn't have a local number at the airport except Sabines'. Unfortunately they ended up calling her around 12:30am even though I specifically asked them to call my cell phone first. Not a complaint or a foul word. Then after that we didn't leave until 8pm, so she met us at the apartment and stored the luggage at her brothers art gallery until later in the day so we could explore Paris more without worrying about luggage. Truly exceptional hospitality.
This is a fantastic place and you won't regret one moment of staying here. Trust me, good ahead and book it, it's fantastic.
The apartment is charming and in a perfect location in St. Germain. My husband and I walked to all the major sights and the train/metro was really close by. The apartment was perfect for our stay, it was nice and warm when we returned from walking in the cold Paris weather, and had all the facilities, was really clean, and quiet at night. Sabine was a great help, always in contact with us prior to our arrival and showed us everything we needed to know on how to work the appliances, suggested a few great restaurants in the area and had all the tourist infromation and maps to plan our stay. It was overall an awesome stay in Paris and hope to return again. Read more

Perfect place to feel "at home" in Paris!
My husband and I just returned from a one-week stay at this terrific apartment. Our experience was fantastic. Sabine is an excellent "hostess," and the communication before and during our visit was fast, helpful, and reliable. The apartment was cozy and charming, spotless upon arrival, and fully stocked with everything we needed. When we met Sabine, she had it all ready for us, including a bottle of wine, local tips, and recommendations. She was also always available by email. But really, the best thing about it (other than Sabine) is the location-steps from the Odeon stop, and in the most charming convergence of streets in the 6th. You could never leave the neighborhood and eat at a different restaurant every meal, buy food and cook (outdoor stalls and 2 markets steps away), and shop to your heart's content. There's a back way to the Seine that puts you on a pedestrian bridge over to the Right Bank with a 10-minute walk. In short, a comfortable, quiet place to feel "at home" in Paris. Details: the wi-fi worked perfectly. The washing machine and dishwasher were great. There was plenty of room for ourselves and our college-age daughter (who is currently living in the 17th but who loved the location so much she stayed with us for almost the entire week.) All kitchen/bathroom items are generously provided. Despite some (unavoidable) construction noise, the apartment is quiet, facing an inner courtyard so though on a lively street there is no noise and it feels very private. (One small caveat: if traveling with seniors or the disabled, be aware there is no lift. It is up one flight of curved stairs: very Parisian, but rather old-picturesque! Make sure you know the location of the timed stairway lights at the top and bottom of the stairs as well as the courtyard entrance before it gets dark. It was no problem for us, however.) All in all, I would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Paris. Thanks, Sabine!

The location of the apartment is perfect. You are close to several Metro stops and the train. You are also within walking distance to many of the churches and museums as well as the river being so close. My favorite thing was how quiet it was in the apartment but then you walk out of the courtyard, turn right and there at the end of the block is rue de Buci with all its cafe's, flower market, produce market, grocery store, bakeries, etc... It is quite lively every night of the week. There is also Cafe Laurent just a few minutes away. It has live jazz on Thurs,Fri, and Sat nights. The apartment is as in the pictures. Sabine is so welcoming and very helpful! The Internet is very fast and you also can make local and long distance calls from the apartment. We felt quite safe in the area and the apartment. We would definitely stay here again.

Cosy apartment in perfect location
In expensive Paris this small apartment is perfectly located for easy access to major attractions such as Musee d'Orsay, the Louvre, Notre Dame and Eiffel Tower. Public transport is also readily available. It is surrounded by excellent restaurants and shopping.
The owner, Sabine, was extremely helpful, check-in was a breeze, and Sabine was happy to be contacted if there were any problems - there weren't. Happy to recommend.
Stayed at this apartment for a week for our first ever trip to Paris, and it was wonderful.
The apartment itself is exactly as in the pictures. It's small, but everywhere in Paris is so that was expected. There was plenty of room for the three of us (me, my husband and 6 yr old daughter). The kitchen was great. Basics stocked, utensils and whatever you needed were all there.
The lication was simply perfect. You are right in the middle of everything, with great metro connections close by, but being off the road meant no noise or anything
Sabine herself was fantastic. Great communication setting things up, and super helpful with anything and everything we needed
I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to anyone.

Our home in Paris for 12 days
We stayed in this apartment for 12 days in august, and as we expected for the reviews and the previous contact with Sabine, the owner, it was a pleasant experience. The apartment has all we needed and more, with a lot of little details of things you may need.
The location is excellent, two minutes walk from the Metro (Odeon) with a lot of bars and restaurants around, although we prefer dining at home, so we bought our supplies in a supermarket just round the corner, which was very well stocked.
The apartment was perfect for the four of us, (all adults) and exactly as you see in the pictures. The only thing that needs repair are the stairs to the apartment, but were not a problem for us.
Definitely, we would rent it again if we return to Paris.

Excelente ubicación, impecable trato de la propietaria. Volvería
Estuvimos en París 6 noches con my esposo e hijo en el apto. de la calle Mazarine. La nueva experiencia de alquilar un apartamento resultó excelente, el trato de Sabine fue inmejorable, el inmueble tal cual luce en las fotos, es confortable, tiene todos los electrodomésticos que se precisan, está en una zona muy animada y llena de comercios y restaurantes, pero como queda en un patio interior resulta tranquilo y fresco. Un paraíso donde volver luego de recorrer las ajetreadas calles de París. La única pequeña crítica es al acceso al edificio que falta reparar, especialmente la escalera. Sabine comentó que estaban en ello.
Si vuelvo a París, rentaría otra vez la propiedad.
The perfect apartment in every way.
The location is perfect for every venue - you can walk to most things and the metro is very close as well. It felt like we were living in Paris not just staying there - wish it could have been longer. Will definitely return and would recommend it to anyone looking for an apartment in Paris. Read more

Thank you Mike! Hope to meet you both again!
Location, location, location
The service from Sabine was excellent and very personal. She was very happy to respond to all our requests. The location is perfect for many of the key sites in Paris being a short walk from Notre Dame etc. It is quiet and secure but has excellent access to dining, transport and shopping. Although relatively small you quickly adjust and the central location makes any compromise in this regard worthwhile.
We were a family of 4 with children aged 11 and 14. The apartment was perfect for our needs over the 4 day stay.
I like it)))
We was in this beautiful cozy apartment in this summer. Very comfortable, we could feel in Paris like at home.Thank you Sabine!!!
Amazing location. This apartment is very close to supermarkets, tasty ice-cream amorino, lovely Laduree macaroons. Important for us that we can every evening went to Luxembourg garden with our 2 year old son. And of course very good location for visiting Louvre museum and another sights of Paris. Read more

Hello to Nicolaï!

Great Place and Perfect Location
This apartment was everything we had hoped. Very clean, well stocked kitchen, individual beds for both of our boys, and very quiet. No street noise could be heard. The owner of the apartment, Sabine, is wonderful, so helpful in every way. She has flyers of some of the local sites in Paris, as well as maps and bus routes to refer to. The apartment is very centrally located, within walking distance to so many sites in Paris. We look forward to coming back to Paris someday, and trying to stay in this apartment again.
My wife and I spent 5 nights at this apartment towards the end of May 2012.
The apartment is on the first floor but we had no problem using the stairs as there is no lift.
The apartment was quiet and overlooked a small court yard. As others have previously written we were met by Sabine who showed us around and explained how the appliances worked. Communicating with Sabine was easy via email to complete the booking and answer our queries.
The apartment is of a reasonable size but for me I think it is only suitable for two people. The double bed was comfortable. The shower was a good size but the bathroom was very small and lacked a power point for hair dryer, shaver etc. There was a separate toilet with hand basin. The washing machine/ dryer was a real plus.
The living room was a good size. Table and four chairs for meals etc.The lounge furniture was OK but could have been a bit more comfortable for my liking. The kitchen area provided all the necessary items and it had a large refrigerator.
The location was excellent as it was within easy walking distance of most sights and plenty of shops, restaurants and supermarkets all within a minutes' walk.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at this apartment.
Response from Sabine - 06/23/2012
Thank you very much for taking on your time to write this review.
Also your remark about the power point for hairdryer and shaver is very important to me: I realize that I always forgot to show where this power point is! (just behind the wood curtains).
Thanks to you I'll remind to show it to my other guests!
Stayed in may. Loved the location! Apartment was great for the two of us..fittings etc were all there it was all good. Location excellent, just around the corner was a lovely little community of shops , restaurants and bakeries. We loved it. A bit crowded for 3+ but great for 2. Sabine excellent!! Read more

Excellent 'base-camp' for Paris
As the title says, this is a 'charming apartment' in the terrific location of St Germain-des-Pres, which is a wonderful area in which to base for any trip to Paris. It has easy connections to transport especially bus, RER (for CDG at St Michel) and Metro. Only a short stroll to the left bank at Pont Neuf and even shorter stroll in the other direction to cafes/restaurants/markets of the 6th arrondisement and street life that is Paris.
The apartment is very well renovated and comfortable practical/stylish furniture, fixtures, appliances and fittings. Located only one set of (Parisian) stairs off ground level, it has windows on two sides.
Your host/owner is very helpful and attentive and most pleasant and efficient for negotiating your rental.
All in all, this excellent apartment is highly recommended for your next trip to Paris. Read more

Thank you so much for this so nice review! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and I hope to meet you again.

Loved everything about this rental!
I can't say enough good things about our experience renting this charming apartment. Sabine, the owner, was a joy to work with throughout the booking process, and she met us at the apartment on our arrival and explained about the appliances, the phone, the TV, the wifi, the door lock, etc. and told us about the small grocery across the street and the supermarket around the corner. The location on the Left Bank in the middle of St. Germain Des Pres, could not be better. The area is very walkable, and the Odeon Metro stop on Blvd. St. Germain is just a short walk from the apartment.
The place is equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay, including a fully equipped kitchen, which even includes a dishwasher, a spacious bathroom with a large shower and nice counter and sink area, and a separate, private WC with its own small corner sink. Although we did not need to use it, there is a washer/dryer combination in the bathroom as well.
The apartment has one bedroom with a queen bed, and in the living room the sofa is actually a daybed with a trundle. In addition, there is a futon chair which provides another bed if needed, so the apartment can sleep a family of five with no problem. The dining table has four chairs, but there are two other chairs that can be used to seat more people at the table if necessary. Since there were only two of us, we had lots and lots of space! What a luxury for a more than reasonable price!
There is no elevator, but the apartment is up just one flight of stairs, and the windows open onto a private courtyard, which means there is no street noise at all even though the building is in the heart of a very busy area. There is no air conditioning, but we did not need it, nor did we need to use the heat during our stay.
I have already recommended this apartment to friends, and I recommend it to you. I will certainly try to stay there again whenever I travel to Paris.

Thank you so much, Ellen, for your lovely message!
I hope to meet you again!
All the best,
Perfect apartment at the perfect location in Paris
This is my first time renting an apartment in a city and it's definitely the best way to experience and live like the locals. The apartment is located at the perfect spot to attractions and restaurants. It is 5 mins to Notre Dame, 10 mins to Louvre, 5 mins to the metro, and less than a min before you find yourself a great place to eat in.
My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights and we were very very pleased with the apartment. It has a full kitchen, a big living area, and a perfect size bedroom for us. The apartment is very modern and clean. The most memorable part was how the owner, Sabine, is very friendly and helpful. She is very responsive with the whole process and very thorough when checking in. She made everything easy!
Even though Paris is a beautiful city of itself, it wouldn't have felt perfect if we didn't stayed at this apartment. I highly recommend it and hope everyone else would have the same great experience we had.
Like staying in someone's Parisian home
Gorgeous little apartment: atmospheric, really comfortable and a peaceful place to come back to after a busy day in Paris. Fantastic location, heaps of cafes/bars/restaurants close by, easy walk to lots of great sights, and v close to metro. We loved just wandering around St Germain and the Latin Quarter, then being able to pop home so our baby could have a nap.
Sabine was a very welcoming host - she met us on arrival, showed us how everything worked and had lots of great insider tips for making the most of our Paris visit. (Making the booking with her in the first place was also very easy.) The apartment is set up with everything you need so it's just like staying at a friend's place.
Great little place!
My husband, I and our 3 year old son stayed here for a weekend in early December. It was a fantastic experience. the flat is in an amazing location, really quite and very well-equipped. It was small - but no smaller than expected - and well laid-out. Everything worked well, the beds were comfortable and Sabine was incredibly helpful when we arrived. She even left a buggy for our son to use which was really helpful. We would definitely look to stay in this place again.
This aparment is ideally suited for 2 people. I think more would be uncomfortable.
The apartment has the appliances you expect in good condition (exception dryer). No airconditioning! Good shower and excellent internet access. It is a quiet, secure and very well located apartment. Restaurants, bars, patisseries
and an intermarche nearby.
Sabine, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. Available by phone if you need any assistance.
I guess the best recommendation is that we would happily stay there again. Read more

Thank you for your comment.
I didn't know that you met some problems with the dryer? It didn't work properly? Please let me know as it is a new machine and I'll claim to the shop where I bought it.
I hope you are well.
Little jewel in Saint Germain
Little jewel in Saint Germain
The apartment in Rue Mazarine is incredibly located in the heart of the funnest part of Saint Germain, with cafes, bars, and people until late at night, yet it is located inside a court yard which makes it calm and quiet. It is tastefully decorated and even if it is a small place it is very smartly set up, to give, even a group of four, privacy and a sense of space.
Sabine was very helpful and nice. We would love to go back.
Very comfortable flat in a superb location. Three of (couple + 16-year-old) stayed there and would return in a second!

Traveller's sanctuary in Paris
We travelled through Paris on our way from Munich to amsterdam. We arrived on Sunday. The apartment was spotless incredibly quite and oh so comfortable...and so well equipped. Sabine even provided a stroller for my 4 year old daughter. She thought of every detail. It was centrally located and so easy to access public tranporation. We loved our experience. My daughter is still telling everyone that our Paris apartment was her favorite of all the places we visited!! Most of all we felt like Parisians...We hope to visit again soon and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thank you Sabine for such a wonderful experience.

A most pleasant stay in this quaint apartment.All the comforts of home, location to everything was perfect. Great correspondence with Sabine prior to our stay. A pleasure to deal with. Thankyou.
Loved our stay here!
This is a gem! We stayed for a week and loved the neighborhood and the charming apartment. Sabine was there to greet us and show us all the important details. She could not have been more gracious. We walked to so many sites and the Metro Odeon is so close for the rest. If you enjoy cafes, art galleries, shopping and nightlife this is the perfect location. We were there with our 12 year old son and at night, it was lively outside of the building but quiet inside. It was a lovely spot for the three of us.
