The Paris/Ile de France region
Paris is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains which account for much of its cloudy but mild weather. But it can be very sunny, and on those days, it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Cloudy or sunny, there are so many fascinating things to do and to see that you'll hardly notice the weather. This is especially true of the St Germain des Près neighborhood.
Rent a bicycle and discover Paris by "vélo", not forgetting the romantic "Bateaux Mouches" romantically cruising
the Seine at night.
The Central Paris / 6th / VIe area
Central Paris has all the excitement of a vibrant and animated large city, but with the charm and beauty that only Paris can claim.
St Germain dès Près is a nostalgic mélange of students matriculating at the Sorbonne, and old Paris where French, American, and other cultures hobnobbed at cafés to share their ideas and artistic endeavours. Almost everything is at your fingertips and walking distance: prestigious Left Bank shopping, museums, art galleries, food markets, cinémas, théâtres, libraries, and jazz clubs just across the boulevard. Restaurants of all nationalities within walking distance. The residence is situated between the historic St Germain Dès Prés and St Sulpice Churches, with the Notre Dame Cathedral a short stroll away.
But if you decide to leave the quartier, there is quick and easy access to several metro stops, busses, and taxi stands. Delightful experiences can be planned for the Marais, Montmartre, and so many other fascinating neighborhoods in central Paris.

My wife and I have now stayed in Rue Du Dragon twice and we intend to return. The spacious apartment is a delight and adds to the experience of visiting this exciting and historic neighbourhood by making a good vacation truly memorable.
Likes: space, character, location, library. Nearby bakery, restaurants, monoprix, metro.
Advice for visitors if not familiar with shopping in France. The shops are closed on Sunday (markets are open though) so make sure that you buy all you need on Saturday.

The apartment was everything we hoped for and more. A gourmet grocery/liquor store is around the corner. The kitchen is spacious and all the appliances work well. The bedroom is away from the street, very quiet, and the bed was good quality for two tall Americans. The small library has selections for every taste.
The Louvre is a ten minute walk. Other notable museums, churches, and restaurants are within walking distance. Two excellent restaurants are right across the street.
Security is excellent, with two coded doors to access the apartment from the street. The owner was gracious and responsive to all our needs.
You will never regret making this your Paris headquarters.
The apartment is greatly appreciated for its location in one of the most chic, sought-after neighborhoods in the heart of Paris. Couples, and friends sharing a holiday together, really appreciate the space, individual privacy, plus the coziness which the apartment allows. Eating out or eating in are easy choices with restaurants and gourmet food shops just outside the door. Separate mini office spaces allow you to plan your escapades for the day's adventures and to write those obligatory post cards peacefully! Many thanks to the lovely guests who chose the apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this comfortable and charming apartment in the heart of the Left Bank. The location is perfect, though perhaps just a bit too much gorgeous shoe buying temptation, with good cafes and restaurants close at hand. Highly recommended.
Very pleased that the reviewer appreciated the animated neighborhood known for shoe boutiques which cater to tastes of all kinds, and the attributes of the apartment which is designed to welcome visitors and to make them feel at home instantly. After a shopping or cultural adventure, choosing any one of the restaurants in the street just a stone's throw away from the apartment--without ever leaving the neighborhood--adds to the time saved for other adventures during one's brief holiday vacation.
