About our home

One of the very rare houses with a garden in the Center of Paris.

The house in itself is 150 sqm, with a fireplace and a 60 sqm sunny terrace, and a very quiet garden.

There is s second house (80 sqm) at the back of the garden (300 sqm) with a private gym, and a screening room with cable TV and more than 2000 DVDs.

Wifi everywhere including on the terrace. In the basement a laundry room.

Full time governante.

We are located in the Latin Quarter, is an area in the 5th and parts of the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It is situated on the left bank of the River Seine, around the Sorbonne. Known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros, the Latin Quarter is the home to a number of higher education establishments.

The left bank contains many of the Paris monuments, museums and gardens, ranging from Middle Age Musée de Cluny or the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in the Jardin des Plantes.

We are also quite near to Saint Germain des Prés. The area still has the major publishing houses, whose executives entertain treasured writers and agents in the famous cafés. But they now share the area with the smart set, those who patronize Hermès, Yves St Laurent’s opulent premises and the elegant Rue Jacob’s smart interior designers. On the south side of Boulevard St Germain the streets are quiet and quaint, with lots of good restaurants, and the Odéon end there are brassy cafés and a profusion of cinemas.

After a 15mn walk you can get to Montparnasse that became famous at the beginning of the 20th century, referred to as les Années Folles (the Crazy Years), when it was the heart of intellectual and artistic life in Paris. From 1910 to the start of World War II, Paris' artistic circles migrated to Montparnasse, an alternative to the Montmartre district which had been the intellectual breeding ground for the previous generation of artists.

At a five minutes walk Rue Mouffetard is one of Paris's oldest and liveliest neighbourhoods. These days the area has many restaurants, shops, and cafés, and a regular open market, on the southern terminus is at the Square Saint-Médard where there is a permanent open-air market.

And of course, as you are in the heart of Paris, access to all the incredible monuments and museums : Le Louvre, Notre Dame, La Sorbonne, the Pantheon, the Eiffel Tower, the banks of the Seine and so much more.

Retail therapy
In the heart of Paris, in the districts of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Sèvres-Babylone and all along the rue de Rennes, there is something for every taste and budget. From haute couture to the major ready-to-wear brands, eclecticism is guaranteed! In rue de Rennes, major high-street brands like Etam, H&M and Kookaï occupy whole buildings and show their collections on three ? At the bottom of the street, Kenzo and Napapijri lead on to the grand couturiers of boulevard Saint-Germain and its surrounding streets: labels Giorgio Armani, Sonia Rykiel, and Christian Dior have been in the area for many years, and Hermès just opened on rue the Sèvres a brand new store, the first on the left bank. Their new neighbours are now Ralph Lauren and SoniaRykiel. The brand A.P.C. has also opened a store in the district. At Le Bon Marché major department store between rue de Sèvres, rue de Grenelle and rue du Cherche-Midi, there is a wide selection of famous labels to choose from. The majority of these districts also have numerous shoe shops, bookshops, and famous Parisian cafes for a full day’s shopping!

Walks in the park
Two possibiities, both at a ten minutes walk. First, the Luxembourg gardens : Parisians, tourists, members of the Senate, children, there's something for everyone in Paris's largest park, which still feels like a local park. You'll see children playing in a fenced-in playground, tennis matches, students soaking up the sun in the countless green iron chairs, tourists admiring the Senate and Lenôtre's octagonal pool in front, lovers strolling by the Médicis fountain, and so on. The second option is the Jardin des Plantes. First opened to the public in 1640, the visitor today could spend a day visiting the gardens, botanical greenhouses, Great Galerie of Evolution, the Zoo, (Menagerie), maze, Alpine gardens, and other sites of this institution dedicated to education and research in natural history. In front of you stretch flowerbeds blooming with tulips, narcissus, pansies, or primroses in April, which give way to in May to summer plantings of cannas, dahlias, abutilons, fuchsias and others which peak in late summer. Every plant is meticulously labeled.
