Paris Vacation Rentals - Short Term Paris Apartment Rentals


Imagine waking up in a Paris apartment surrounded by historic charms and then walking outside to find the Seine River with a stunning view of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame just steps away! The Colombard is a lovely one bedroom, one bathroom apartment with an outstanding location in the Latin Quarter on a quiet street between the Quai de Montebello along the Seine and the trendy Boulevard Saint-Germain. This is the 5th arrondissement at its best! At the Colombard you'll enjoy a peaceful home away from home just moments from the Seine, Ile de la Cité and Notre-Dame, excellent dining and shopping spots and more. The famous Shakespeare & Company bookstore is just a short stroll away!

Named after the Colombard grapes used to produce stellar white wines in Bordeaux and rich Cognacs and Armagnacs, this Paris vacation rental is situated in a historic building with tons of original charm. The elegant décor beautifully complements the wooden beams, tiles and artistic accents. The fully remodeled kitchen and gorgeous bathroom ensure a comfortable stay with all the modern conveniences.

Enjoy shopping at the open-air food market at Place Maubert just down the street or exploring all of the cafés, restaurants and brasseries nearby. After dinner take a romantic stroll along the Seine under the lights of Notre-Dame, or cross over to the Ile St-Louis for walk through the medieval streets on the island. Relax in the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens, visit the Panthéon and discover all the charms of the Latin Quarter during your stay at the Colombard!

Please note: This apartment is located on the first floor (second floor American) without an elevator. There are also five steps from the living room down to the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen level at this vacation rental.
