Neighborhood

Saint-Germain-des-Prés (6eme)

Saint-Germain-des-Prés is an area of the 6th arrondissement of Paris, located around the church of the former Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Our luxury vacation apartment is built against the Abbey’s only remaining wall. Les Deux Magots and Café de Florem are just a couple of the famous cafés to be found steps away from your Paris holiday rental. This central Paris neighborhood has transformed into a destination for couture window-shopping and catered relaxation. Saint-Germain-des-Prés ivy-covered art galleries, corner patisseries, and centuries-old churches only add to the neighborhood’s undeniable romance.


The Café de Flore, at the corner of Boulevard Saint-Germain and Rue St. Benoit, in the 6th arrondissement, is one of the oldest and the most prestigious coffeehouses in Paris, celebrated for its famous clientele.

The classic Art Deco interior of all red seating, mahogany and mirrors has changed little since World War II. It too has hosted most of the French intellectuals during the post-war years.

Les Deux Maggots is a famous café which once had a reputation as the rendezvous of the literary and intellectual of the city. Its historical reputation is derived from the patronage of Surrealist artists, young writers, such as Ernest Hemingway. Other patrons included Albert Camus, Pablo Picasso, James Joyce, Bertolt Brecht and the American writer Charles Sutherland. No vacation to Paris is complete without a visit to these iconic cafés.
