Smack in the heart of St. Germain, the center of Paris, and on a private cobblestone pedestrian walkway, just chock full of history. This one bedroom property is on the 1st European floor (2nd US) having a separate bedroom with queen size bed, bathroom and open kitchen and living area.
History buffs will delight in being located 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, The walkway is gated at one end and mostly closes down at night from 24hrs to 07hrs (12 pm - 7 am) but, you will of course have access to come and go whenever you please. No cars out your windows, just pedestrians bustling about, taking in all the splendid shops on this uneven walkway, for example 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!
After entering the building off the cobblestone courtyard, you go through the door and walk up one flight of wooden stairs and enter the 35 m2 (about 370 ft2) one bedroom apartment. 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.
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 (about 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, including an oven, 3 burner stove top and microwave.
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.
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”!
