I stayed here for over 6 weeks. The area is absolutely the best area in Paris in my opinion. Lively, very safe, centrally located to all attractions. 2 Metro stops very close by. Many excellent restaurants, cafes, bars.
The apartment itself has a very authentic feel. It's quiet as the windows don't face the street, so even when the street below was alive with parties (as happens often in this neighborhood) the apartment itself was quiet and restful. The church bells of St Sulpice were the only real street noise.
Nathalie and Jean are wonderful landlords, supplying everything necessary, and always available for questions as well as checking in periodically to see if all was well. I can honestly say I will never stay anywhere else in Paris. Not only is the 6th the best, but the location of this apartment is ideal.
Thank you both!
My wife and I stayed at this property in June of 2010 for 5 nights. It was a well maintained apartment that had all the necessities, but best thing about it was the location. Absoultely amazing location in St. Germain du Pres. Great bars, pubs, restaurants, shopping were all within a minute's walk of the apartment.
Like one of the other past guests, we did find that the neighbour was making lots of banging noises from time to time, but since we spent most of our time outside, exploring Paris, this really was not too much of a concern.
Although we did not get to meet Nathalie in person, she was very helpful and professional from our first engagement. We would definetely stay at this property again as the value for the location exceeded our expectations.
My wife and I stayed at Rue Princess in June of 2010. We were very pleased with the location of the vacation rental, and with Nathalie's kindness and welcoming. The apartment is small but old and with charm. The bathroom was also small but everything worked well and the shower was adequate. When we arrived, the neighbor next door was banging on our wall. We imagine they were fixing something over there, and it was quite annoying. We were jet-lagged and just wanted a nap and there was a loud banging on the wall. I know there was nothing Nathalie could do about this, it was just a difficult situation. The window opens up to a small courtyard which is less noisy than the street, but there was still loud talking and partying outside our window just about every night. There were good restaurants, bars, and bakeries within a short distance, and the metro is very close. All in all we enjoyed our stay at Rue Princess. -Kevin
Stayed here in October 2009. Great experience all around. The apartment is adorable, clean, and a decent size for a Paris studio; the owners were very accommodating and helpful. Great neighborhood -- there are several bars on the same block, so the street is quite busy at night, but the apartment faces an interior courtyard so there's no noise. Will definitely stay here again.
We stayed here from June 18 to 24, 2009. Though we didn't get to meet Nathalie, she was very helpful via email and everything went well from arriving to leaving. The place is perfect for 2 people and in a great neighbourhood if you want to be in the middle of the action. Thanks again for everything. our stay in paris was great.
Tive momentos maravilhosos em Paris. Esse studio está situado em uma área nobre da cidade, com ruas elegantes, fácil acesso a lojas, Marché, e aos principais pontos turísticos. Adoramos td e sempre nos lembramos com muito carinho, Nathalie e Jacques foram incríveis, mesmo não os conhecendo, fomos tratados com muita gentileza, e em nossa próxima estadia em Paris, com certeza queremos desfrutar desse studio.
Beijos a esse casal gentil que nos acolheu tão bem.

Hello Nathalie and Jean-Jacques,
I'm not sure if you'll remember me, but I rented your wonderful Paris apartment in June. I was just thinking about my visit Paris, and I wanted to thank you for letting me stay in your apartment. I found Paris to be absolutely beautiful and your apartment was perfect! I know I should have written sooner to say thank you, and I'm sorry. I hope you both are doing well and I wish you both the best. And if any future renters want to talk to previous renters, feel free to give themm my email.
Ashley Merci beaucoup. Je voudrais prendre l’occasion pour vous dire combien nous avons apprécié notre séjour à Paris. Votre appartement était super propre, accueillant et super bien situé. Nous avons vraiment beaucoup aimé. Soyez assuré que nous n’hésiterons pas à le recommander à nos amis, et si nous retournons à Paris (et nous espérons que ce soit pour bientôt), nous allons retourner chez vous. Encore merci et nous vous souhaitons de passer de très Joyeuses Fêtes! Diane et Pierre
from Diane Lizotte Jean-Jaques and Nathalie are amazing, gracious hosts. I am delighted to have met them. The apartment is in an outstanding location - It was within walking distance to: Notre Dame Cathedral, St. Chappelle, the Louvre, Musee d Orsay, Luxumburg Gardens, St. Sulpice - you couldn't ask for a better location to see the sights of Paris. Thank you, Jean-Jaques and Nathalie for your hospitality!!
from Dana M I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to stay in your charming and brilliantly located little studio on rue princesse. It was comfortable, and I felt immediately at home. I do a bit of travel writing, have pieces due on Figueres and Collioure from this trip, and I'll trip to slip in a piece about your place in a later piece on Paris. Again, thanks for your trust and I look forward to my next visit. Best, Lin Rolens
