“Great location, interesting loft apartment”

As the other reviewers have noted, you cannot beat the location of this apartment. Very close to the Saint Michel metro and within walking distance to Paris 'greatest hits'. Because we read previous reviews, we were prepared for the several flights of stairs to the apartment entrance, and the quirky flavour of its living space. We are a family of 6 and while it was tight, we were comfortable there and happy to have access to a kitchen, dishwasher, bathtub, TV, and oven. Our teenagers slept above the kitchen in the mezzanine, and our two younger kids slept in the pull out couch, which was plenty big for them.

Martine was great - friendly and professional, and both her and the owner responded to our emails in a timely manner. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

“Wake to the bells of Saint Severin”

This gem of a find is amazing. We love love loved it. Jean met personally met us at the apartment regularly keeping in contact with us prior to arrival, he showed us the apartment,, recommended places to eat and was extremely friendly. This inspiring place has everything you want and more. A view of Saint Severin church with its 9 am bells, a view off the Eiffel Tower (you will see her to the right of the gorgeous balcony), a kitchen that provided us with lots of yummy meals, a mezzanine level for our teenage daughters and the quirkiest bath ever. The bath became a highlight for my family during our stay. We watched videos of jeans, enjoyed reading some of his books and the girls played chess on an amazing chess set. The apartment is situated in the perfect location in Paris, you can peruse the boulevards with ease and choose from any number of restaurants just below you. It has a boulangerie just around the corner that we used everyday, a supermarket just as close and great wine bars everywhere. As for how far it is, well turn the corner from Saint Severin and you have a view of Notre dame. There are two easily accessible metro stops and whilst here one of our favourite things to see was the Saint Michael fountain. It's a 10 minute walk to the pantheon and the Luxembourg gardens. We highly recommend this place for families and we will be back in the not to distant future. A home away from home in a city that we just can't get enough of.

The accommodation was in a great central location within the beautiful Latin Quarter and close to the open top tour buses and metro. Just one block away from the Notredame church. The 116 steps (which we were prepared for) were not a problem! We got a real sense of living in an apartment with a history dating back to the 15th century. Eating possibilities in the local streets were amazing. We were greeted by friendly manager who was only too pleased to be of help. The bedding was fine for our family of five and the apartment was fitted out with all mod cons including good WIFI. Thanks for the welcome to Paris

“Most memorable stay in Paris!”

Stayed in this character filled apartment with our four children, aged 15, 13, 8 and 6. Climbing the winding staircase for our daily workout was quite something (especially being pregnant, maybe more so for my husband and son who carried most of the luggage for our large family - hopefully we worked off some of the pastries!), but we expected it, being a 16th century building - that made it special (all part of the experience!), and the view from the little balcony made it worth it too. Was delightful stepping out to look down on the beautiful streets below, surrounding buildings, roof tops and the old St. Severin church tower directly opposite. It was like stepping into a different time and world. The expression on the faces of our kids when they realized they could see the Eiffel Tower in the distance was brilliant.. and when we came back in the middle of the night, after spending a day out and about and then shopping in the quaint little streets late at night, hearing the squeals coming from our 16 year old who'd popped her head out the balcony door to find the Eiffel Tower glittering and twinkling (which we didn't realize it did) was just priceless. The two little ones were thrilled to discover the toilet with the old door - they called it a treasure room! They really enjoyed playing with the beautiful chess set too. Lovely little kitchenette and wooden beams in the ceiling. We had to be careful with the steep twisty stairs in the apartment (for the little ones), but just put suitcases on the side and got them to take it slow, so it was fine.

Martine, who greeted us, was so lovely and climbed up and down those stairs with a sore leg, and even came back to sort something out for us. The owner was lovely too, making booking a pleasure, even though we'd messed up our booking by accidentally reserving the wrong dates - he kindly helped us sort it out. He then sent an e-mail full of information on the rental, the area, recommendations on the best way to get there etc, also offering to allow us to bring our luggage earlier than check-in if we needed to for our convenience. Wonderful, friendly service.

As for the location - perfect spot! You come out the door at the bottom straight into the most atmospheric little streets with little souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, chocolatier, patisseries, etc. We only had to walk around the corner to find the most delicious croissants and other pastries. The Notre Dame Cathedral is only a couple of blocks away, as well as taking leisurely strolls along the Seine. We walked all over, to the Louvre and the Palais Garnier Opera House. There are beautiful buildings everywhere. The Metro is only a few blocks away and think it was only about four stops to get to the Eiffel Tower.

Everything made for a most memorable stay for our family.

Wow!!!
I do not believe I have ever smiled as much as today while reading a review from guests. This is so incredibly kind of you to take the time to write a long and complete review of our flat. It seems that you and your family truly understood the magic of this little jewel. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Please come back soon!

We were back in Paris for a quick stopover and decided to go back to this gem of a place. I was travelling with my two older teenage daughters and they simply wanted to go back to the apartment under the roofs of Paris.

Who could argue with their love of this little jewel. We were once again charmed by the wooden beams, the floors, the little balcony with the incredible view. The perfect place for my morning coffee or evening drink.

This time the girls were older so they added the neighborhood to their enjoyment.

Located in a pedestrian neighborhood that was very lively was a great bonus for my girls. Being high up enough to be far from the noise was a bonus for the mother!

Once again we found the place perfectly equipped for our stay. A compelte kitchen, great bathroom, comfy beds, wifi, TV etc...Everything we needed for an outstanding stay.

We only wish we could have stayed longer!
