What a great area - close to St. Germain , Rodin Museum, and just a 10 minute stroll to one of the best shopping galleries in Paris- Le Bon Marché. Just a 3 minute stroll takes you to rue de Sevres, where you will find several grocery stores, bakeries, cafes, restaurants and the metro stations - Vaneau or Duroc - nearby. This metro line takes you toward the Eiffel Tower going west and straight into St. Michel, Odeon (St. Germain) area going eastward.
This is a duplex flat, with the main bedroom and bathroom downstairs. There is an entrance at this level from the courtyard. Upstairs is the kitchen, dining table, and living room with foldout sofa bed. This upstairs floor has a separate entrance via outside stairs, and of course, you have an internal staircase connecting the two floors. Please note the staircase has handrails on both sides, but we do ask you to use caution as with any stairs.
Large enough to sleep 5 people, there are 3 beds offered; the double size bed on lower level in the bedroom, plus a twin size futon for a child or young adult, which can serve as a chair (low to the ground) and the double size sofa bed on upper level. This sofa bed does not have a true mattress, but folds out to an extra thick double cushion at floor level; its best for children or young adults.
The kitchen is quite large and open, featuring a real built in oven, microwave, large refrigerator and freezer, plus dishwasher and plenty of countertop and cupboard space for any needs. The round dining table can accommodate 5 people, with the city lamps offering you your own private ‘Paris feel’. The bedroom is large as well, and has direct access to the bathroom which has a large rainfall type shower, sink, cupboards, a small window and the WC.
The living room offers plenty of room for everyone to gather to make next day’s plans or tell stories form the day’s touring. There are numerous windows in the entire apartment, allowing in lots of light and looking out to a quiet courtyard. The door on ground level with entry direct to the bedroom is made of a high security type of opaque glass and also has a heavy blackout curtain. It is easy to arrive at the duplex on ground floor level, with your bags, then accommodate yourselves as you wish once inside.

Left on 12/21/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | RGSOUNDFReviewed Dec 21, 2013Stayed Apr 2013
This is our fourth or fifth rental with VIP since 2007, and we would like to use the opportunity to express our gratitude to the very efficient and friendly service rendered by VIP. Jan especially was more than helpful on numerous occasions.
The apartment itself was arguably the best of all our multiple rentals, both through VIP and other companies we used through the years. Ideal location; on one hand, it is quite centrally located, with Blvd. Raspail and Blvd. Saint-Germain within a walking distance, but it was also off the beaten and noisy tourist paths, the courtyard facing windows added to the inherent quiet of the 7e arrondissement. Also, the Montparnasse area and the Invalides are right there. All the grocery stores, specialty stores (charcuterie, cheeses, wine, etc.) are within two or three minutes walk. Even a supermarket Carrefour City is right next to the apartment on rue des Sevres. We won't even dwell on great neighborhood restaurants, for this is a ubiquitous case anywhere in Paris.
We would just recommend the famous Le Grand Bistro de Bretuil by Garry Dorr. This restaurant can be walked to in five minutes, and it offers the most luxurious all-inclusive consisting of an aperitif, three-course dinner, a bottle of wine and coffee for a bit less than 50 euro. It should be considered a freebee for Paris. other dining choices.
Both the metro and several bus lines stops are right next to the apartment, which should solve any transportation problems or needs. A Tabac for purchasing the transit tickets is basically on the block, one street to the west, on rue des Sevres, towards rue Rousselet.
The Wi-Fi worked perfectly well. The lack of washer and dryer is well compensated by a laundromat right across the street from the building's entry door.
Our only complain is that for a nine day rental, a spare set of bedding should have been provided. Other than that, we will definitely rent the property again.
