Junior Suite - Botanical Garden


Your own cosy apartment in the once arty, now classy Latin Quarter. An elegant, romantic and peaceful bolthole for 2


1 bed


1 bedroom


Sleeps 2


Provided you’re happy to climb to the third floor, Junior Suite is perfect on every score. Light pours in through tall windows, the bedroom faces a tiny street (traffic? You can barely hear it), the detailing is tip-top and everything’s folded, fluffed or shining. At 40m2, this flat is not large but it’s cleverly laid out and as homely as can be. Off a tiny hall is the living room – no sofa but comfy chairs at the dining table, and a fridge-and-microwave kitchenette – a small bathroom to the right and a delightful bedroom to the left. Beds (made up as a queen or two twins) are topped with feather pillows and lovely linen, there’s a large TV and books galore – including some fascinating old travel journals – a polished pine floor that has aged gracefully, and some elegant oriental antiques. Welcoming you with bathrobes, kimonos, extra towels, umbrellas, croissants and a bottle of wine is Belgian-born Catherine, generous, well-travelled and living on the fourth floor. She knows all the places to go, from restaurants and delis to Notre Dame and the Jardin des Plantes, two minutes away.

We loved staying in this comfortable apartment. It made us feel as if we were really living in Paris, not just staying in a hotel. Fantastic location near transit, and easy walking distance to several attractions. Catherine was a very welcoming hostess, having maps and local information ready upon our arrival. Would definitely recommend this as a “ must stay “!

Staying at Catherine's apartment was, for us, living a cool version of the French "art de vivre". This very well decorated apartment is the perfect Parisian "pied-à-terre", both for its centralized location and its warm, homely atmosphere. This was our 2nd stay and it was just as magical as the first. Merci Catherine et au plaisir! Paul et Régent

The apartment is perfectly located, cozy and clean. The bed is comfortable. Catherine is very friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend the flat to persons who are able to climb 4 stairs.

Steffen, Weissensberg

The apartment is very centrally located. Many interesting sights are within walking distance. The metro station is only 5 minutes away. The tasteful and clean apartment is very lovingly furnished. Everything you need for breakfast is available in organic quality. The bathroom is also spotlessly clean and everything works perfectly. Catherine is an extraordinarily friendly and likeable hostess. She is always responsive and has many great tips and recommendations for places of interest and restaurants. She's always very considerate. We would definitely rent this apartment again.

Forget booking into a Paris hotel. This suite is an ideal alternate to the noisy 9th or 6th arr. where most visitors to Paris end up. Its a short walk from prime Paris sites: 15 min. to Notre Dame, and the Blvd.Saint Michel cafes, 5 min. from the best street market in Paris on Rue Mouffetard but still in a very quiet neighborhood. Our 5-day July visit to Paris was a delight. Catherine provided surprises we haven’t found in other apartment rentals: baguette, wine, fruit, stocked refrigerator and daily breakfast makings. The apartment is meticulously decorated and has a beautifully bath.

Philippe, London

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights in Catherine’s very comfortable, well appointed apartment. Located on the third floor the flat is more spacious than we thought from the website. Everything is clean and works. Catherine was extremely helpful with all our queries. She replied promptly to our request about availability and sent us detailed instructions as to how to find the apartment. She booked us into 2 great little local restaurants for our evening meals and there was plenty of food provided for breakfasts. The purchase of the GF bread was appreciated. We will definitely go back!

Lizzie, Cambridge

We had stayed with Catherine for 5 nights, Catherine is the best host I've ever met. Catherine helped us everything we need. We love the way Catherine organize the flat, cosy and comfortable. Catherine's flat is now our home in Paris. We would definitely come back to again!

Josie, Taipei

A very comfortable flat very well situated on the South Bank. Catherine, the owner, could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Anyone looking for a good base from which to explore Paris should look no further.

Allan, Northwich

My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks at Catherine's comfortable Latin Quarter apartment. It's location was ideal. We enjoyed having our breakfast in our well supplied kitchen before exploring the city each day. Catherine's directions and advice were most helpful. Both the apartment and Catherine herself are charming. We felt very at home in the city of light.

  • This calm and sunny flat is located on the third floor WITHOUT a lift.The flat consists of 2 rooms one large bedroom, with one queen bed that can be made up into two single beds if necessary, TV set. In the small living , you will have your breakfast.
  • The flat is filled with beautiful pictures and books; and most importantly a collection of very rare and original photo albums about my Grand Father travels round the world in 1895. As well plenty of Paris Guides, Maps.
  • The flat is very light and sunny, as it is full of windows that give a cross light onto the courtyard on one side and on a calm street on the other.This is a very animated area during the day and quiet in the evening,
  • Down the street from the flat are fabulous little french bistrots and cafe that remain full of life until late at night. The aera is very safe, there is no problem to walk at night.
  • As I live on the premise I will be glad to welcome you in my own flat at anytime. I will give you a detailed map of the area with my favorites restaurants , bakeries etc..and if you need anything during your stay I will be glad to help.
