Quiet Luxury and Style. Elegant St Germain Des Pres Apartment
This luxury 2 bedroom apartment (538 Sq. Ft., sleeps 5) was renovated in 2010 and is located on the Left Bank of Paris in the center of the Saint Germain des Pres district, just a few minutes stroll from the church of St. Germain des Pres and only a couple of blocks from the Seine. It is only a short walk over the Seine River to the Louvre museum and the Tuilleries gardens and an easy walk to the Luxembourg Gardens or to Place Saint Michel and the Latin Quarter. It’s only a bit further to the Notre dame Cathedral on the Ile de la Cite and to the Ile Saint Louis.
Located on the third floor of a classic building with an elevator, the apartment has five large windows overlooking private gardens and is truly very quiet. The entry vestibule opens into a spacious living room. This is a wonderfully light and elegant room with traditional high ceilings with molded trim and large windows overlooking a beautiful private garden. The furnishings are a mix of classic and designer pieces, wonderfully combined with art and other decor pieces to give a real elegant Parisian touch. These include a beautiful cream Italian marble dining table and a huge designer couch with soft cushions that can be used as a single bed. All the other rooms lead from the living room. Equipment includes a flat screen Cable TV, Stereo, DSL Internet access with Wi-Fi and free North America land line calls.
There are two bedrooms overlooking quiet private gardens, one with a queen size bed and the second with a double bed. Each bed has a top quality mattress, pillows and good quality linens. All windows have shutters and heavy curtains and there are closets in each room.
The kitchen is designed to be both functional and elegant with many built in features. All cooking equipment is of the highest quality and includes a full size refrigerator with freezer, four burner gas cook-top, classic electric oven, a separate, large capacity microwave and grill, dishwasher, clothes washer, and a separate clothes dryer. There is ample cupboard space and full kitchen equipment, including cutlery, glassware and crockery.

May family and I completly enjoyed our stay at the Pre aux Clercs apartment. We were warmly greeted at the apartment and shown around - as well given us some advice on where to shop and eat and stuff. The apartment was clean, quiet, nicely decorated and very well appointed. We had everything we needed. The location was great - near lots of attractions and a few minutes walk from the Metro. Not too far from Julia Childs old stomping grounds either!!! Next time we are in Paris we will stay here again - this time without the kids!

This is a wonderful apartment perfectly situated on a quiet street in a lovely neighborhood. We enjoyed opening the windows to hear the church bells ringing in the distance and pigeons cooing - no traffic noise at all. It was a nice place to relax from the hectic pace of Paris. The decor is lovely and there is clever storage throughout the apartment. We were traveling with two boys (11 and 14) and found that it was perfectly comfortable for the four of us.
We found the apartment's location ideal - walking distance to museums, gardens, the Seine and all of her lovely bridges, a variety of street markets, the Grand Epicerie of the Bon Marche - plus close to a couple of different metro lines. Grocery shopping was less than a 10 minute walk to the nearby Monoprix and there were a couple of great patisseries in the area (Secco off of Rue du Bac was our favorite).
The booking staff were all helpful and professional. I dealt primarily with Max who was friendly and very responsive. Lucas, our greeter, arrived at the apartment exactly when our cab pulled up to the curb. There were absolutely no hiccups.

Our stay in Paris was excellent. The weather was hot and sunny which suited us just fine for hours and hours of walking and exploring. The apartment was beautiful and so convenient, just as advertised. We walked to Notre Dame, The Louvre, The Orsay Museum and even the Eiffel tower at midnight for crepes one night. Especially nice in the apartment was the wi fi, the ipod docking station, the espresso machine and plenty of storage space for our clothes and things. The welcome greeting was on time, friendly and very helpful. We easily located a place to park the car and shop for groceries after unpacking the evening we arrived.
The reservation process was a breeze, no problems at all.
Thank you for a fabulous stay in Paris.

We couldn't have asked for more. This spotless apartment, in a charming neighborhood, was convenient to shops, markets and the Metro. We had plenty of closet space, two large bedrooms, the luxury of a washer/dryer and all kitchen essentials. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Pre aux Clercs is a lovely 2 bedroom apartment in the St Germain des Pres section of Paris. Newly renovated with modern kitchen and bath make this a perfect holiday spot to explore the city. the apartment is walking distance to the Louvre and other major attractions as well as restaurants and the metro.
The personal service from the time you make the reservation to meeting you upon arrival to your departure is excellent.
The company representing the owner has many other apartments around the city for every taste and budget.
We will use them again on our next trip.

The apartment is great, exactly as seen in the pictures. All the appliances and housewares new and perfectly clean, great beds and bedding, beautiful art work, stylish design furniture, beautiful views of gardens...Also a plus having some cooking basics like salt, sugar...oil , and a brand new bottle of milk, water, wine and juice ! That is a great detail, one boring part of renting a place is having to deal with all that part of the grocery store instead of concentrating in the baguette, the cheese and the vegetables for the salad! I was so thankful to having that off my shoulder. Location is also great, to me best area of Paris...you can never go wrong with Saint Germain! The apartment is about two blocks from the subway station and walking distance to most of the tourist attractions. A gem ! We've had such a wonderful time, thanks!
