Cobblestone Delight St. Germain One Bedroom holiday rental

Smack in the heart of St. Germain, the center of Paris, and on a private cobblestone pedestrian walkway, just chock full of history, this is one of two separate apartment units that can be rented by itself or together. This is the web page for the one bedroom Paris rental. The one bedroom property is on the 1st European floor (2nd US)having a separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, queen size sofa bed and is independent from the second property.

The second property (studio ID #253) is on the ground floor and is part of this apartment. It can be rented separately, or together - see below for details. If rented separately, the only contact you may have with the other guests is passing by in the common area hallway.

Kitchen includes full over and stove top

History buffs will delight in being right behind the famed ‘Le Procope’ restaurant, which has been in business since 1686! And yes, the first ambassador from the newly formed colonies now called the USA ate at Le Procope, as did many dignitaries like Voltaire, Danton and Diderot. In fact, during the day in fine weather you may see some tour guides lecturing several different nationalities on the history of this ancient corner of Paris, and your famous cobblestone walkway. It is considered the heart of the left bank, and will be your own semi-private cobblestone walkway, which is gated at one end and mostly closes down at night from 24hrs to 07hrs (12PM to 7AM) but, you will of course have access to enter and go whenever you please. No cars out your windows, just pedestrians bustling about, taking in all the splendid shops on this uneven walkway, like the “Le Chocolat” restaurant just a few doors down, specializing in, well you guessed it - everything chocolate! This is such a central and great location with most everything just a couple of minutes walk outside your door. Crepe stands and restaurants, cafes, bakeries, ice-cream shops, and so much more for specialty dining pleasures! The Odeon metro is only 2 minutes away, or of course the St. Michel metro stops (several lines including airport direct lines) is only a 4 minute stroll… Walk to the Louvre in only 10 minutes or Notre Dame as well, or even Luxembourg Gardens in less than 15 minutes!

First floor single bedroom for a up to 4 persons:
After entering the building off the cobblestone courtyard, you go through the duplex door and walk up one flight of wooden stairs and enter the 35 m2 (@370 ft2) one bedroom apartment. The apartment sleeps 4 adults with a queen size bed in the bedroom plus a queen size sofa sleeper of high quality in the living room.

Please note that due to the historic nature of this building, there are some height restrictions in the living room and kitchen area. While the ceiling is about 7 feet high, most of the exposed wooden beams are at a 6 foot 3 inch or 6 foot 2 inch height level. If you are more than 6 feet 2 inches tall (@188 cm) you will need to be careful to not bump your head in some areas! The bedroom and bathroom have normal height ceilings.

The living room is combined with the kitchen area and is quite large and open. There is one full long wall with large windows looking out to the cobblestone pedestrian way below. These windows are large enough to offer lots of light for the apartment. The kitchen is open with plenty of counter space and all you need for cooking meals with an oven, 3 burner stovetop and microwave for just reheating items from the nearby delicatessens.

The bathroom has a large shower, large sink, WC, and an exhaust fan and towel warmer. There is an air- conditioning unit in the living room/kitchen area. The bedroom is large, with lots of large windows as well, with plenty of closet space and a very comfortable queen size bed. It is of course separated from the living room by a door. The living room itself has a queen size high quality sofa bed with a thick mattress and is easy to open/close and was purchased in June 2011. There is a very sturdy wooden banister type guardrail around the stairs for your safety, but we would like to point out that the staircase itself is a bit narrow and does not allow two people side by side.

If you are renting this unit together with the lower ground floor unit, then the inner downstairs door to the studio will be open for you. If you have only rented the upper unit, then you go directly up the private staircase, which also has a sliding lockable door at foot of the stairs for your complete privacy.

Renting Both Apartments Together:
For guests renting both units at the same time, you have complete privacy in each unit, while being connected at the same time. Click on the Paris studio apartment link for full description of the ground floor studio, which sleeps 2 persons. Each upper and lower unit will have:

- Its own telephone line
- Its own independent TV
- Its own Wi-Fi capability, no need to share
- Separate independent AC units

And the combination of the two gives you:
- 53 m2 of living space (@570 ft2)
- 1 kitchens - one full and one a smaller kitchenette
- Sleeping for up to 6 adults, with 3 separate sleeping areas
- 2 full bathrooms - A dining table big enough for 6 people

Come share this grand old piece of History in the heart of the left-bank… have bragging rights for staying on a private cobblestone street, in a 17th century building, and of course do sample the fine cuisine just in front of your fine apartment at Le Procope, where Mr. Benjamin Franklin likewise dined… who knows maybe this is where he was inspired to “discover electricity”!

We, along with another couple, rented 253 and 254 for almost a week. We loved these apartments! They were in a small building directly across from Le Procope (oldest cafe/restaurant) in Paris on a tiny cobblestone pedestrian street lined with small restaurants and stores. The apartments were spotless and quiet...we only heard a little noise late on Saturday night when some young people were having fun outside. We had plenty of comfortable room for all 4 of us when we combined the 2 units and we each had our own bathrooms and washer/dryer combos. We could walk to all the known spots, the Louvre, Tuilleries, Notre Dame, rue Buci (fun restaurants), the Marais, the get the idea. Location was very convenient and safe. The apartment was air conditioned which came in handy. Would definitely stay again!

My mother and I rented this apartment for a week and it couldn't have been better! The apartment is very charming, both inside and out--we loved the quiet pedestrian street it was on, and the new modern interiors mixed with the historic construction. The pullout couch was huge and very comfortable (I slept better in it than I do at home), and my mother enjoyed the bedroom. It was great having space for us both. We have sent this apartment link to our friends and family, encouraging them to use it too. Would be a great place for a couple's romantic getaway, a small family's excursion, or a mom and daughter trip like we had!

We rented this apartment, and the studio downstairs. My wife and I stayed upstairs, and two others shared the downstairs studio. When we arrived at the apartment, with keys in hand due to the excellent management of Vacation in Paris (the New Jersey company from which we rented the premises), the only surprises we had were purely pleasant ones. Our apartment was perfectly clean, with a very comfortable, sizable bed and pleasant living room furniture, and a substantial bathroom for Paris apartment standards. The rental company provided us with a bottle of wine, and all of the kitchen equipment one could want. The apartment is located on a beautiful pedestrian cobblestone walkway, convenient to countless restaurants in the St. Germain area. On the street parallel to the pedestrian walkway is a superb, well known bakery at which we bought pastries each morning for a breakfast "at home." The apartment has a phone with which guests can make free calls back to the United States - a marvelous convenience. There is a steep, narrow staircase up one flight to this apartment that might be a challenge to some, but other than that, everything was quite accessible. We arranged, through the rental company, for a private car to transport the four of us from and back to CDG airport. While this was a bit of an extravagance, it was also a wonderful luxury. When our flight arrived in Paris about five hours late, the car and driver were there for we four tired travelers.
This stay in the Cobblestone apartments convinced us of the clear advantages of a Paris apartment vacation over staying in a hotel. We felt that we had our own home, and the price for it was less than any hotel we would have chosen. We will do this again.
