Set in a perfectly preserved late 17th-century Parisian building, this gorgeous one bedroom, one bathroom apartment offers an elegant stay in the very heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés on the Left Bank. Step into the grand salon with soaring windows and nearly twelve-foot high ceilings and you'll find a comfortable setting for relaxing at home. The salon also features a sofa that opens to create a sleeping space, which means this one bedroom apartment can comfortably welcome up to four guests. In the intimate master bedroom you'll find a luxurious king size bed and a huge French window. This stylish apartment has been beautifully remodeled to preserve the historic features, such as the original Versailles parquet floors, the fireplace mantle and boiserie wood paneling on the walls. Tastefully decorated with a blend of modern and antiques, the Charente is a charming Parisian home away from home.
Step outside and you'll be just moments from the Seine or the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, home to the historic literary cafés and fabulous shopping. Spend a morning soaking up the atmosphere at a charming café or stroll along the Seine to see the Musée d'Orsay, the Cathedral of Notre Dame or cross the river to visit the world-class collections at the Louvre Museum. At the Charente you'll also be just a short stroll from the lively Latin Quarter, gorgeous Luxembourg Gardens, Saint Sulpice and a wonderful selection of restaurants, brasseries and cute Parisian cafés.
Please note: The kitchen and bathroom of this apartment have 6-foot ceilings, which add to their charm and coziness. This apartment is located on the 2nd floor (3rd floor American) of a historic building without an elevator. The luminous staircase has been listed as a Monument Historique for its beauty and original details and this fabulous apartment offers a lovely stay in Saint-Germain.
