[style]: St. Germain Study of Contrasts

7.03.2014

Next two apartments in Saint-Germain-des-Prés would run you about $12-14K for a month of renting. They look and are decorated very differently, quite a study of contrasts.

Le Château Saint-Germain is an elegant and luxurious three-bedroom/three-bath apartment (or two-bedroom with separate studio) located in the very heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district of Paris with a view on the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and steps from the liveliest part of the quartier.

Located on the second floor (European, third floor American) of a 17th-century Hôtel Particulier (townhouse), the spacious rooms wrap around a central courtyard affording windows on all sides of the apartment with views of three streets and the courtyard. The apartment was renovated within the last few years and no detail was spared. Upon entering the foyer, you may choose to turn left to enter the open living room/dining room/kitchen, positioned on two living levels, adorned by columns, an 18th century stone fireplace, tall windows and a state-of-the-art contemporary kitchen. Furnishings are antique and elegant, but inviting, friendly and comfortable.

Second apartment is referred to as 'Apartment le Coeur'. Located on rue Git le Coeur, and just steps away from Place Saint Michel with its romantic fountain, this apartment has much to offer. With guidance from an interior decorator, this light and airy abode offers exceptional furnishings and artwork; modern decor meets simplicity. Large windows and majestic high ceilings provide a pleasant feeling of space and luminosity.

This apartment sleeps up to six guests in two double bedrooms and a sofa bed. The spacious living area is imbued with pale and elegant colors and consists of a parlor with a comfortable sofa, a dining table seating up to six guests, and a well-equipped kitchen (fridge/freezer, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, Nespresso machine, kettle, and toaster). The two, very comfortable double bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with elegant, Italian showers.
