This one bedroom apartment is on the 3rd floor (no lift) of a 17th century building in a historical area of Paris. It is situated just two minutes from Metro St Michel and RER rail station.
The apartment is set back from the street so that even though the area outside is busy, the apartment is quiet and peaceful.It consists of an entrance hall, lounge, bedroom,small kitchen, shower and toilet. Floor to ceiling windows give good natural light from interior courtyards. The flat is perfect for a couple.
This part of the Left Bank (St Germain des Pres) is one of the most famous in Paris. Bookstores, cafes, small theatres and jazz clubs fill this historical area between the Seine and the elegant Boulevard St Germain. Literary cafes such as Cafe Flore and Les Deux Magots, home of intellectuals in the post war years, are still popular. The Shakespeare Bookshop (open till midnight) opposite Notre Dame is staffed by visiting students who can stay in one of the tiny upstairs rooms. There is a bustling nightlife in clubs and pubs (the inevitable Irish pub) and small shops stay open late. The area is a shoppers' paradise.
Within walking distance are many museums and galleries. Musee d'Orsay, converted from a railway station, is a walk along the river. Saint Chapelle and Theatre du Chatelet just over the bridge (Pont St Michel) host many concerts. Musee de Cluny, nearby, houses a fine collection of medieval art . You can walk to the Louvre and Notre Dame. The 13th century church of St Severin is few minutes walk from the apartment.
