This trendy one bedroom accommodation is perfectly suited for the popular Saint-Germain des Prés district that it is found in. Situated near the thoroughfare intersection of the rue du Cherche-Midi and the Boulevard Raspail, this location puts you in a central part of the 6th Arrondissement of Paris, not far from the Jardin du Luxembourg. The building dates from the beginning of the 20th century, but benefits from modernization, and includes elevator service and a digicode system at the entrance of the building. The apartment itself is on the 4th floor (equivalent to the 5th American floor), and even includes a small balcony!
The layout of this apartment is is very accommodating: the kitchen is open to the living room, so you can chat or listen to the TV while preparing meals, and the bedroom's entrance is near the bathrooms, so you do not need to disturb those in the living room. Older elements of the construction remain present, like the decorative fireplace and wooden floors, but the bright scarlet and stainless steel kitchen reminds you that we're in the 21st century now! A small balcony gives quaint views of the Parisian rooftops. In addition to the double bed in the bedroom, the sofa can also unfold into a sleeping accommodation. The privacy of the bedroom also allows you to get some work done -- there is a desk and shelving built-in. The armoire opens to have space for hanging clothes and there are shelves in here as well to arrange your belongings. The bathroom has a separate toilet for extra flexibility and there is even a washing machine and dryer tucked into the shower room, a great way to allow you to pack light for your trip!
Outside you will find the lively Saint-Germain des Prés area -- popular with students due to the high concentration of universities in the area, including the famous Sorbonne. Therefore, many cafes, casual restaurants and bars dot the commercial streets, such as Le Nemrod, just half a block from your apartment, with a nice terrace for people-watching. There is a small park just two blocks away, but if you really want to picnic or feel like you're in nature, you must visit the Jardin du Luxembourg, a bit further at 750 meters away (about .5 miles). On the other side of this park is a popular tourist destination: the Panthéon, a monument that is the last resting place of famous French people such as Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Jean Moulin, Emile Zola and Victor Hugo. The 6th arrondissment was historically home to the existentialist movement, so you will see many famous names throughout the Saint-germain Des Pres / St. Michel area on shops, streets and buildings.
For exploring the rest of Paris, you won't have to go far to hop on the metro, and you have three different lines to choose from! The Sèvres-Babylone station is closest, serving the 10 and 12 lines, and the Saint-Sulpice station is not much further (just 500 meters/.3 miles from the apartment), giving you access to line 4.
