Paris Vacation Rentals - Short Term Paris Apartment Rentals


Step back in time to an age of refined elegance at the Dragon, a stunning one bedroom, one bathroom vacation rental with an enviable location on the historic rue du Dragon in the 6th arrondissement. This notable street just off trendy Boulevard Saint Germain survived the grand urban planning of 19th century Paris and has maintained its medieval charm blended with a stylish ambiance. Stroll along the street lined with buildings from the 17th to 18th centuries, past the house where Victor Hugo once lived and the trendy boutiques of the rue du Dragon today, to the entrance of the building where this vacation rental is set on the 4th floor (5th floor American). You can enjoy the historic setting without worrying about the stairs since this building conveniently has an elevator!


Beautifully decorated and finely appointed, the décor at the Dragon perfectly complements the original stone walls, gorgeous wooden beams and other historic features that have been lovingly preserved. Relax in the evenings in the spacious living room or cozy den or enjoying dining at home in this stunning Parisian home.


Guests fall in love with the marvelous location of the Dragon, just a short stroll to Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés at the heart of the sought-after Saint-Germain neighborhood. Walk to the Seine, Musée d'Orsay, fabulous shopping, the Luxembourg Gardens and simply cross the Seine to visit the Louvre Museum and see the sights on the Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis islands. Discover the historic heart of Saint Germain during your stay at the Dragon!

"I have stayed at the apartment at 42 Rue du Dragon four times now. It felt like home the first time and now I am so happy to return.

Johanna & Neil Boyer, United States
