Description from the manager
Did you know, the word "perfect" comes from the Latin "perfectus," meaning "completely done," implying that further improvement is either unnecessary or impossible?

Paris, Ile-de-France (Paris Region), France
Additional Location Information
The 6th arrondissement is home to Saint Germain des Près, multitudinous cafés and boîtes which have by now become the stuff of legend, the Rive Gauche and les bouquinistes (booksellers) along the river Seine, wonderful outdoor food markets, and jaw-dropping building after jaw-dropping photo-op building, things you'll know you've seen before but not quite sure where (in the movies, as backdrops to famous fashion photo spreads, most likely). Here's a tiny sampling of things right outside the door of your fabulous apartment.
First, of course, the Luxembourg Gardens
The Boulevard Saint Germain des Prés boasts some of the best shopping and strolling in all Paris – nay, the world!
Les Deux Magots and le Café de Flore: Sartre and Camus participated in "philosophy bees," actual head-to-head competitions set up by the proprietors of Les Deux Magots and the Café de Flore…
A short stroll away, don't miss visiting the wondrous Musée d'Orsay – another Parisian monument designed by an Italian architect!
Around the corner is the River Seine, beckoning you to an evening boat ride with cocktails, or a delectable dinner, and gorgeously lit buildings rising on either side.
The Hotel Lutetia has a long and well-curated connection to jazz, and the building itself is a beaux arts marvel. Go by for an afternoon refreshment, or an evening musicale.
The booksellers, or bouquinistes, along the Seine have been there since 1500, according to Rick Steves.
