SPECIAL EDITION: For Sale: A Sexy Studio in the Sixth!
Studio Apartment Fully Furnished
28 m2 (300 sq. ft.)
Third Floor with Lift
The location of this sexy 28 square-meter studio apartment is as drop-dead perfect as it gets. Located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, where rue de Buci meets with boulevard Saint-Germain and rue de l’Echaudé, the apartment we have called “Le Mabillon” on our rental apartment sites is in the perfect location to enjoy one of Paris’ most sought after locations. It is on the third floor (with elevator) of an old building completely restored to modernity.The Left Bank, or “La Rive Gauche”…is the chic of the chic.
Upon entering the building it is immediately clear that this one is special. Completely renovated in 2009, the common areas boast of exposed stone walls and centuries old beams, all beautifully illuminated with modern lighting. The anachronistic, modern glass elevator juxtaposes rather well with older parts of the building and waits to take you up to your Paris home.
The apartment is every bit as stylish as its surroundings. From the entranceway, a hallway leads first to a bathroom with combined tub with a rainfall shower, sink and toilet. Modern and elegant fixtures, a stone counter and a large mirror, make this room shine.
Continuing down the hallway one comes to the main part of the apartment. To the immediate left is a large closet with hanging space. Just past this is the kitchen area with refrigerator, two burner ceramic stove, full sized oven, microwave and several other small appliances that will allow you to be self-sustaining for as long as you need to be. The apartment is well equipped with dishes and glassware as well as utensils and cooking implements. (The apartment is sold with all of the furnishings!)
Opposite the kitchen is the sleeping area, with its inviting king-sized bed which can be converted to twins. The bed is adorned with luxury fabrics and ample pillows. Surrounding the head of the bed is built in cabinetry, which will mean that you will never have storage issues.
The entertainment center with flat-screen TV and DVD player can be enjoyed from the bed or from the comfortable sofa on the opposite wall from the bed. For your dining pleasure, there is a table for two in the corner of the apartment beside an antique mirrored divider. The plush Louis XV chairs will allow you to comfortably linger over meals.
The apartment has two large windows through which the sun shines, overlooking the very quiet rue de l’Echaudé, and is equipped with blackout curtains to allow you a very dark sleeping environment if so desired.
Transportation is abundant — with two Métro lines: Mabillon #10, Odeon and Saint-Germain-des-Prés #4 and #10; and numerous buses: #63, #70, #86, #87, #96

“Location, Location, Location! The Mabillon apartment is situated in the absolute best spot in the beautiful neighborhood of Saint-Germain! You have easy access to the Métro, markets, shopping, novelty stores, restaurants.”
“The apartment was fabulous. Everything is updated and it is quite spacious. Since our Paris stay was part of a longer trip having a clothes washer/dryer was a great plus. I don’t think there is a better location in Paris.”
“I can’t really pick a favorite thing about Le Mabillon, but a favorite moment for us was always entering from the street and hearing the door click behind us and walking down that beautiful and magical old hall, either towards that cool elevator or the wonderful stairs and knowing that the beautiful and comfortable apartment awaited us. We were so happy living there. In fact, we can’t wait to come back.”
“Not only is this area of Paris a privileged one but also the atmosphere is excellent! We loved coming to this beautiful, lovely and extremely comfortable apartment after a long day of touring the city. It exceeded our expectations!”
