Rental Apartment in Paris, Saint Germain des Prés - Porthos
Description from the manager
History and comfort are waiting for you in this Paris apartment, located on the left bank. This 17th century building was the barracks of the musketeers of the King and retains many of its authentic charms! Great for friends or family, this location puts you within walking distance or a metro ride away of many of the main sites of Paris. Recently renovated and with a private terrace, this charming and well-equipped apartment makes the perfect pied à terre for your Paris holiday.
The apartment was renovated in March 2012 and refurnished with new equipment. It is on the third floor without a lift, and features a coded entry and an intercom. The terrace (12 m2/129 ft2) is equipped with a table and chairs. From the terrace is a view of the top of Le Bon Marché and the rooftops of Paris.
